About the real life example about helmets blocking peripheral vision and causing soldiers to get shot.
Most modern helmets don't actually block peripheral vision, but do distort and block sound, which does reduce situational awareness. Wearing tactical goggles, night vision goggles or gas masks however does indeed block peripheral vision.
Should this be linked to "It's Quiet... Too Quiet" as a meta-example? At least in line with the Oot S version, where they are aware SOMETHING is wrong, just not what.
Why is it that when I search for this article, the associated picture is a male Rainbow Dash?
P.S. I found the image—it was under fanfiction. I still don't get why the search chose THAT and not, you know, the image at the top.
I have wondered that for all pages that have a different image in the seacrh page to that of the page itself. Ask The Tropers.
Removed the FFIV example (and the Mega Man Battle Network example I was about to add) because they properly fall under the subtrope Behind the Black. There are probably more.
