Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' has Desmond using the Animus (a device that allows him to see the lives of genetic ancestors) to watch the life of 15th century assassin Ezio Auditore. When Ezio find a recording of [[{{Precursors}} Minerva]], she answers some of his questions, then turns right to the camera and addresses Desmond directly. Desmond is justifiably freaked out.

Added DiffLines:

* In Fanfic/{{Constellations}}, [[VideoGame/{{Okami}} Sunny]] does this to [[Literature/{{Worm}} Tattletale's]] power to the point where all the latter can do is point at Sunny and say "Dog!" She also 'photobombs' it.


** This was {{exploited}} with much glee by Hiyori in episode 2, to the point that the local {{telepath|y}} Haruka [[spoiler:[[StressVomit vomited]]]].

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' episode ''Absolute Justice'', Clark Kent meets Kent Nelson, who is always clutching a bowling bag suspiciously. Clark uses his x-ray vision to look into the bag, and sees the Helmet of Dr. Fate -- which suddenly ''turns to look at him...''

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/MyHeroPlaythrough'': Accidentally happens to Izuku. He attempts to use his new Clairvoyance ability to check out class 1-B. Only he sees Hagakure Toru in her Hero costume. The result causes his power to snap and he almost falls over.


* In ''Literature/APracticalGuideToEvil'', the Gray Pilgrim has a combination of [[TheEmpath empathy]] and divine insight that equates to mind-reading. When he's conversing with the captured BlackKnight and gets a little too chummy, Black chastises him by crafting a mental image of himself beating the Pilgrim to death with a rock. Later in the same conversation, Black says that according to his analysis Pilgrim and his ally Saint of Swords are [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone responsible for an ongoing disaster]], and visibly enjoys the moment when Pilgrim senses that he meant every word of it.

Added DiffLines:

** Given what we learn about Killinger's true nature in "All That and Gargantua-2", it's likely Orpheus wasn't able to see anything at all and Killinger simply overpowered him.


* Played with in ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'': Astropaths are Psykers who navigate ships through HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace, using the God Emperor's knowledge of the galaxy. To gain that knowledge, they get a brief glimpse of his mind, which binds them permanently.

After this, they can see the great psychic beacon he fuels and guide themselves by it, as well as the flows and currents of the Warp, but they obviously lose their actual sight in the process.


* ''Videogame/TheSecretWorld:'' A regular example, followed by a much stranger one, when you attempt to spy on [[spoiler:John/the Black Signal]]. He catches you peeking, and decides he might as well return the favor and subject you to some invasive MindRape, scouring through your memories like it was a powerpoint presentation on a projector, being [[AffablyEvil his usual self]] throughout. And then comes the unintentional example when [[spoiller:he stumbles upon your memory of your encounter with [[HumanoidAbomination Lilith]], someone John has met before and is ''utterly terrified'' of, not to mention is convinced just the memory of her will be enough for the real deal to reach him. His TraumaButton is slammed, and he turns his mental violation on himself by accident]].

* A common theme in a lot of ''TabletopGame/WorldOfDarkness'' games is that powers allowing you to see through the eyes of other creatures also allow you to feel their pain, and may have bad things happen to you if they die. Savvy players who notice themselves being followed by a rat will often shoot it without a second thought.

* Invoked in ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'', when the company's new owners are [[BlatantLies described as having absolutely no psychic powers whatsoever.]] Wally isn't worried, however, because if they tried to read his mind, "They'd all go blind."

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/MoonKnight'': The Profile, a villain who’s able to [[SherlockScan discern a person’s entire personality and thought pattern by looking at them]], tries to do his thing on Moon Knight. One problem; Moon Knight is ''severely'' mentally ill and suffers from Split-Personality Disorder, on top of being the chosen champion of a literal god. Profile only narrowly avoids being driven insane by the experience of “reading” him and is overwhelmed with fear afterwards. Interestingly, this is only an issue when Moon Knight is in his superhero personality; Profile is able to read him perfectly fine when he’s in his civilian identity, Marc Spector. The implication seems to be that Marc has [[YourMindMakesItReal different weaknesses and strengths depending on which personality is running things]]; Moon Knight is immune to mind-reading and can counter it, but Marc can’t.


When the 'third eye' belongs to the ''audience'', the '[[BreakingTheFourthWall fourth wall]]' is [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou being broken]].
