Go To



While unusual hair or eye colors won't be noticed, they may not actually ''be there'' in the first place -- see HairColors. When the Unusually Uninteresting Sight is ignored by apathetic folks in a [[TheCity metropolis]], then that's CityOfWeirdos. The simplest explanation is that people may have simply gotten used to the sight and accept it as normal.

Possibly an extension of the BystanderSyndrome, contrast with MundaneMadeAwesome and FauxHorrific. Occasionally justified with a WeirdnessCensor. Common in MagicRealism and MundaneFantastic. See also CityOfWeirdos, FantasticallyIndifferent, ElephantInTheLivingRoom, LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy, MetallicarSyndrome and NotDistractedByTheSexy.

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}''. Nobody in this otherwise carefully realistic neighborhood seems to find it at all odd that a beagle should be riding atop his doghouse dressed as a WWI Flying Ace, among many other things. They do however look askance at Peppermint Patty for believing he's "a funny-looking kid with the big nose". (Occasionally [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when they ''do'' find his behaviour odd - just in passing - then continue on their merry way. It's possible the kids just figure he has doggy ADHD.)
** Then there's this exchange when Snoopy finds it cold at night and they're trying various methods to keep him warm (This is a case of TruthInTelevision since dogs, given a choice, will prefer to sleep on top of rather than in a kennel):
---> '''Linus:''' ...couldn't he just sleep inside the doghouse instead of on top?\\
''(Snoopy, Charlie Brown and Lucy all stare at him incredulously)''\\
'''Linus:''' I guess it was kind of a dumb suggestion.

* No one in ''Animation/TheFrogPrincess'' seems at all surprised that animals can talk, or that wizards and witches exist.

Added DiffLines:

* The [[Wrestling/{{CHIKARA}} CHIKARA]]-affiliated Wrestling Is Fun! promotion had as its main title the [[https://www.cagematch.net//?id=5&nr=1840 [=WiF!=] Banana Title]], that is, a title that was represented by ''an actual banana''. Wrestling/{{Jaka}} actually ''ate'' the banana after winning it, which his manager Wrestling/SidneyBakabella [[EvenEvilHasStandards found shocking]].

Common in MagicRealism and MundaneFantastic. See also CityOfWeirdos, FantasticallyIndifferent, ElephantInTheLivingRoom, LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy, MetallicarSyndrome and NotDistractedByTheSexy.

Added DiffLines:

* The video for Bonnie Tyler's "Music/TotalEclipseOfTheHeart": {{Ninja}}s! Kids with GlowingEyes! A kid with {{Wing|edHumanoid}}s! In a boarding school! It isn't until [[SelectiveObliviousness near the end]] when the one kids with glowing eyes sings the hook "Turn around bright eyes" that she gets the sense that there is something wrong.


* ProfessionalWrestling lives and breathes this trope, due to a combination of {{Kayfabe}}, RuleOfCool, RuleOfFunny, WorldOfBadass and WorldOfHam.

*ProfessionalWrestling lives and breathes this trope, due to a combination of {{Kayfabe}}, RuleOfCool, RuleOfFunny, WorldOfBadass and WorldOfHam.
**Wrestling/TheUndertaker, a grave-digging zombie with the ability to make the lights go on and off, come BackFromTheDead and {{Teleport|ation}} at will? Check.
**Wrestling/{{Sabu}}, a maniac who celebrated winning matches by moonsaulting ''himself'' through a table? Check.
**A TagTeam called Incoherence ([[Wrestling/HunterJohnston Delirious]], Wrestling/{{Hallowicked}} and Wrestling/{{Frightmare}}) who got plenty of mic time even though their promos were largely unintelligible gibberish? Check.
**Wrestling/LaParka, a Mexican guy in a [[DemBones skeleton]] costume who dances and does AirGuitar with a chair during his entrance? Check.

* ''Animation/{{Lamput}}'': Lamput encounters a monster hiding in a coffin in "Haunted House". He's scared of it, but the docs are too busy searching for him to even notice and be scared as well.

Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Podcasts]]
* In the first world of ''Podcast/InterstitialActualPlay'', the students of [[Film/HighSchoolMusical East High]] don't bat an eye at a strange man in a cloak playing card games in their gym while asking them who's the most hateful among them. Even the main characters take a while to notice, since Marche is distracted by the game and Roxanne thinks his aesthetic is normal.
