Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })No detail escapes the notice of our character. With only a brief Sherlock Scan, he can deduce intimate and accurate information about an individual. With Hyper-Awareness, they will sit down and know how many people are in the area, what they are doing, which ones are important to the plot and what would be the best exit without attracting attention.
For example: During a stroll through a crowded casino while having an important conversation, he can notice that the woman at the outermost Baccarat table is wearing knock-off Dior, yet playing $10,000 gold plaques with abandon, left-handed, and she has a "tell" that is a slight shaking of her left foot.
Sometimes this is an element of a character's personality that has been well set up. Especially in detective / crime shows it may be the entire point of the story.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })At other times, it is a new attribute that only serves the plot. It may never come up again.
Can overlap with the Scarily Competent Tracker, Living Lie Detector and Photographic Memory. Compare Super Senses when it is literally that their sense of hearing, sight, smell and touch are hyperactive. Compare Spider-Sense for characters who are uncannily aware of imminent danger. May be visualized with things like Fluorescent Footprints or a stylized Bullet Time Stat-O-Vision like readout of what they see. Contrast Failed a Spot Check.

In Sherlock the entire success of Sherlock Holmes' work as a "consulting detective" is based on his immense ability to notice and evaluate the tiniest details on one glance.

In Worm:
Tattletale has this an actual superpower, which she uses to great effect. Although overusing it gives her incredibly painful migraines, and the certainty of squicky sensory overload means Tattletale Can't Have Sex, Ever.
Taylor uses her ability to share the senses of swarms of bugs to create a form of hyper-awareness over a limited area. She can also place bugs on enemies' limbs to sense their movements, giving her advance warning of attacks. She's so effective her enemies speculate her powers include limited precognition.
Taylor's Hyper-Awareness is such that when she's blinded by an explosion, she remains so aware of her surroundings that no one notices and she doesn't bother mentioning it. And she's not sitting down either-she escapes a deathtrap, then fights a Endbringer-level opponent without any loss of effectiveness.

One The Hardy Boys: Casefiles book had Frank Hardy realize that a series of small noises on a car radio was a signal being transmitted. For what was probably a bomb attached to their car. He is, of course, right. This is also used to subvert the usual Magic Countdown: when the noises stop, they know they only have a few seconds.
Many theatre people are familiar with what happens if you have a cell phone, even one that isn't in active use, in close proximity to a wireless microphone; it's a very characteristic sound. Still, going from "sounds like someone left their cell phone on" to "we have a bomb in the car" would not be an intuitive leap for most people.

Sherlock Holmes (2009) with Robert Downey Jr. shows the downside of this: it never turns off and he's almost constantly being overloaded. In the sequel, the gypsy queen asks, "What do you see?" Holmes replies, "Everything. That is my curse."

Detective Conan
In addition to the Sherlock Scan, Shinichi Kudo (and hence, Conan) has this gift. At one case, Shinichi sees a girl reaching for her murdered boyfriend's bag on a cabin overhead luggage compartment, remembers something, tells her story and then pulls the bag off the compartment. What we notice is the story she told us, what Shinichi notices is that she used her right hand before she told her story, and then she switched to her left hand afterwards. It was important because the murder weapon is a sharp object; the bra worn by the girl has a detachable metallic strap which she sharpened one of them. She wears the bra during the scene (since she can't throw it away) and sharp edge grazed her skin when she raised her hand and hence, she switched to her left hand.
Hattori Heiji. Back when they were in Middle School both Shinichi and Heiji solved a case at the exact same pace of deduction, so he must have the same hyperawareness as Shinichi.

In the Angel episode "Supersymmetry", Angel was able to use his Photographic Memory to exactly reconstruct a crime scene and identify a suspect. While in earlier episodes he had demonstrated an impressive memory and other exceptional mental talents (he speaks several languages and can recreate faces almost perfectly), that particular ability had not been shown before; Angel Hand Waves this by stating it's "not an automatic reflex."

Dr. Gregory House. At one point he walks down a line of patients waiting at the (much hated) clinic and diagnoses entirely on their physical appearance and general behavior. More then a few episodes are dedicated to showing how he is certain that there was some little thing that he might have missed that is key to the problem of the week. In one episode, he manages to deduce he is in a coma-induced hallucination by a combination of in-universe fourth wall awareness and that everything is running too smoothly. Yes, House's Hyper-Awareness is sufficient to allow him to break free of a hallucination made by his own mind.

Shawn Spencer from Psych was trained by his police father to pick up on small and unimportant details. He even has special effects showing the audience how he notices things. And turns his head sideways and left with a silly expression that Gus now mocks. Even people who've only just met him figure out when he gets a clue. However, because he's Brilliant, but Lazy, the cops refuse to believe this slacker could figure out a crime from just small clues on TV and that he must be in on it. In desperation, Shawn convinces them he's psychic and spends the rest of the series keeping up the act.

The main character from Lock On! has this in his left eye which he calls his Shutter Eye. It is so powerful that he can even use it to detect freshly made dents in a wooden floor to track where a friend had walked off to. However it is shown that if he overuses this he becomes incredibly fatigued. To limit it he usually wears an eye patch over it.

G.I. Joe's Native American tracker Spirit got retconned as having this ability in the new IDW continuity, to do away with the "Native American Tracking Master" stereotype. He's still Native American, but descended from the Pueblo tribes (city dwellers) and was raised in the suburbs. He was diagnosed with hyper-awareness as a child, and started living in the wilderness to avoid overstimulation, while learning to focus his ability.

In the Hannibal series:
Will Graham's overabundance of mirror neurons gives him a rainman-esque talent for reconstructing crime scenes, gauging how a murder took place and inferring the killer's mindset from a glance around the scene. He very much considers this being Blessed with Suck, since it forces him to adopt the mindset of some very sick people.
Hannibal Lecter has extremely acute senses, in particular a sense of smell powerful enough to identify the wheat field a man was killed in after his corpse spent two days in a river, or even identify when someone has stomach cancer. This makes him dangerously good at reading people, as well as a particularly tricky guy to fight.

Luna Lovegood of Harry Potter fame is shockingly perceptive, except when it comes to her own Cloudcuckoolander beliefs. When Harry is transformed via Polyjuice Potion, Luna has absolutely no forewarning that he'll be in disguise, but she instantly recognizes him by the expression on his face. It does not, however, occur to her that walking up and greeting him by name might be a bad idea.

The Dresden Files: Minor effect of a potion that Harry puts together in Fool Moon. It's a "pick-me-up" or a "super-coffee", and before it wears off, he has shades of this. And composes a symphony. And blows all the tires of a truck on the highway. It was a sharing kind of mood. He also has shades of this when Thomas asks him to size up all the people in the park at the end of Turn Coat. This one is much more mundane — throughout the series he's mentioned things he's noticed as an investigator. Sure, most of them were features of women, but his skill as an investigator is renown, and its a very practicable skill as an investigator. Earlier in the same book, Harry got access to a kind of localized omniscience called "Intellectus". He realizes, while in its throes, that because he's unfamiliar with it, he's visibly reacting to it (knowing there's someone there, he's trying to look for them) and therefore must look crazy. More than usual, anyway. It makes his trying to convince two hostile parties to work together that much harder.

Discworld
Klatchian Coffee takes you from drunk to sober and all the way out the other side, so you're knurd (anti-drunk). At this point, the rose-colored glasses are stripped away from you, and you see reality for how it really is. ("This involves a lot of screaming.") Then you drink lots of and lots of orakh (a Klatchian Gargle Blaster) and swear you'll never get knurd again. It is joked that Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch was born two drinks on the knurd side of sober, so he needs a drink or two to just be normal. This both makes him intensely cynical and gives him a tendency towards alcoholism. It also effectively makes him the straight man for an entire world of absurdity. Vimes, who says that new coppers glance once at a street and miss all the important things, like people hiding in the shadows and trying to kill you; experienced coppers like Angua will look carefully to make sure they get everything, and really experienced ones like Colon and Nobby will take one look, because that's all they need, has another type of hyper-awareness in that most of the time he can glance down a darkened street and see everyone there, including those trying to hide in the shadows.
One of the few people who can hide from him is, predictably, Lord Vetinari (who notably failed all his stealth examinations at the Assassins' Guild because he was marked absent — think about it). Vetinari is so clinically aware that he makes Vimes look normal — despite Vimes being described as "the most cynical bastard that ever walked under the sun". In Guards! Guards! he is shocked and transfixed by the sheer depth of Vetinari's cynicism.
Brutha from Small Gods, in addition to a perfectly Photographic Memory, is also hyper-aware, as he can recite a complete description of a room, down to the most minute detail, after only a few seconds of looking at it. And can also repeat anything spoken to him, word for word.
Tiffany Aching has First Sight (seeing what's really there, not what you expect to see) in Wee Free Men and it plays a reasonably large part in Hat Full of Sky. Most witches have this (except possibly Magrat), and in Mort we're told it's the first thing wizards learn at UU as well. (Okay, the first thing they learn is where the privies are and so on, but after all that it's the first thing.)
Susan Sto Helit is also revealed to have this in Thief of Time, as part of her heritage from her grandfather the Grim Reaper.

Spirit of the Century has stunts that can make a character Hyper Aware. In particular there are the Focused Sense and Impossible Detail stunts. The former allows the character to have a single hyper-developed sense (and can be taken multiple times to apply to multiple senses), while the latter removes any penalty to notice a detail because it's too small or subtle.

Sans of Undertale seems harmless at first, but notices a lot more than he lets on. When the player loads a previous save, it's not simply a gameplay mechanic, it's worked into the plot that this is an ability the player has, akin to time travel. No other character is aware of when you do this other than Flowey, who retains his memories across resets. Sans doesn't retain his memories, but he is aware that the ability to reset exists, and is perceptive enough to deduce that you can do so based on your reactions to the world.

Turnabout Storm's Sonata. She's a unicorn with the special talent of hyper awareness, which gives her yet another parallel with Ace Attorney characters, Apollo Justice in particular. This ability is quite handy to her, especially for her blackmailing activities.

In Exalted, characters with Perception, Awareness and/or Investigation scores of 3 or above (to say nothing of the corresponding Charms) will very likely be doing this regularly. With the corresponding Charms, you get people doing things like critiquing the mating dances of insects or identifying every illicit affair at a high society event through scent. The best of which, Sagacious Reading of Intent, allows you to discern someone's lifegoals and Beserk Buttons just by looking at them, or knowing how everyone in a group relates to each other person. Eclipse Castes explicitly consider parties and social functions to be their "battleground".

Rogue was originally a copy of a copy, having used her default Power Parasite ability to permanently add Carol's Combo Platter Powers to herself. Her Cosmic Awareness showed up even less frequently than Carol's did, and she lost the power when Carol's "essence" was permanently expunged from her body.

Taking the "Soy Sauce" in John Dies at the End can temporarily grant someone Hyper Awareness, in addition to the permanent ability to see supernatural things and simultaneously exist in multiple dimensions. However, most people who take the stuff end up dead or inhuman.

Mai in Futari wa Pretty Cure Splash★Star remembers positions softball players enter for a split second (for instance, Saki in mid-pitch) accurately enough that she can draw their poses, compare the drawings, and demonstrate how the players are moving differently than usual. She can also remember the faces, well enough to recognize them as classmates, of people she saw flying through the night sky at a great distance. The former looked like horrible writing at the time, but after the latter, seems more like a clumsy attempt at Chekhov's Skill.

Marvel's first Captain Mar-Vell (not to be confused with the original Captain Marvel) was gifted with Cosmic Awareness, that let him perceive everything around him. The limits of this ability weren't clear, but when he got it, he sensed without any mirror that his hair had turned from white to blond. He also could find the best timing to avoid a hit or to attack himself, and was also a plot point when Thanos became the entire universe thanks to the Cosmic Cube. He even became aware that he had cancer long before he underwent any medical tests to confirm it.

Supergirl has also demonstrated having impressive capability for analysis and deductive reasoning (Super Instinct she called it back in the Silver Age) owing to her Super Senses, heightened memory and natural intelligence.

Stargate SG-1: When Jonas Quinn is placed on the SG-1 team, he shows to have skills at recall and noticing tiny details that other characters found spooky. Though it serves the story for him to quickly be able to replace Daniel Jackson on SG-1, it is indicated to be because he (or possibly his species) is slightly more evolved than Earth-based humans in one episode of the series.
This is clearly demonstrated in an episode where they are investigating a small town after a strange call. Teal'c and Jonas are sitting in a diner, and Jonas easily points out the strange things people are doing, such as a guy who is reading the same page of a newspaper three times, or another who has put a dozen teaspoons of sugar in his coffee. He's never showing actively looking around him and seemingly notes things at a glance.

Dune
The Bene Gesserit use their hyper awareness as a tool for manipulation. Descriptions of Bene Gesserit thought processes in the novels are often comparable to chess masters watching the world around them like one big chessboard, and calmly noting their accruing advantage. At one point a Bene Gesserit correctly deduces that there is a hidden room on the other side of a large banquet room by noting the subtle geometry of the walls of the room and the objects in it as being specifically designed to produce a slight echo where those in the hidden room can listen in.
Even with mental processing as incredible as that, the Bene Gesserit still only learn those abilities as a supplementary skill for their main areas of expertise. The mentats, however, specialize specifically in Hyper-Awareness and so are infinitely more adept then even the best Bene Gesserit. This is because Mentats are, literally, human computers, as the inhabitants learned all too well what happens when they make a machine in the likeness of a human mind...

Fallout has the perks Awareness and Friend or Foe. With Awareness you are able to see how many Hit Points the target has and which weapon he's wielding, with Friend or Foe you can instantly distinguish between friendly and enemy NPCs. Black Isle apparently decided the latter was a dick move and just allowed any and all PCs to discern this from the start. There's also the Empathy perk, which effectively tells you which conversational options will make a person happy or sad without having to resort to Save Scumming.
Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas have this too in the form of the compass radar, which displays markers showing the player where other sentient beings are. The range at which these markers appear is based on the character's perception attribute.
Also in Fallout: New Vegas is the Spotter perk granted by a companion that highlights hostiles when you aim down the sights, making it way easier to pick out enemies even if their coloration camouflages them.

Batman has this sometimes, in addition to being Crazy-Prepared, and Nightwing and RedRobin both usually display an uncanny awareness of their surroundings. Being aware of everyone around you and what they're wearing and doing was the first thing Dick started training Tim on back when he was still new. This is part of the reason the entire Batclan is so difficult to sneak up on.

This first showed up in The Thrawn Trilogy. Jedi Apprentice has Qui-Gon and his young apprentice Obi-Wan walk through an area, and Qui-Gon quizzes his Padawan on minute details spotted on the way through. It may be a little different from Luke's version, though; Obi-Wan was too distracted to pay proper attention and is called on it, while Luke doesn't have to pay any attention. Luke's version only works on his short term memory, while later Obi-Wan is able to closely review a memory of something that happened weeks ago.

Nami (from the novels) claims that she was able to tell that Sōsuke was trained as an AS pilot due to callouses on his wrists and elbows that she briefly noticed while he was changing. Lemon, on the other hand, is convinced she was just checking him out.
Sōsuke himself has developed a preternatural sense of danger — in The Second Raid anime, Wraith mentions how he flips out whenever she points a sniper rifle at him for fun.

The Tesks in Alien in a Small Town were genetically engineered as soldiers to have both heightened situational awareness and animal-like superhuman senses. This had the unintended side effect of essentially making them empaths, able to read a person's intentions and emotional state effortlessly through heightened sense of smell and awareness of body language. They tend to get rattled in the presence of Starfish Aliens, though, because they find them unreadable.

Adrian Monk. In one episode, a rock is thrown through his psychiatrist's window. He recognizes the rock. You really can't get much more hyper aware than that. This is implied to be partly a result of his Super OCD. In one episode, his psychiatrist prescribes him pills that allow him to relax and reduce his OCD. As a result, his detective skills also suffer.

Spectre from Noob has this and the creator admitted to lifting the cause (e.g. low latent inhibition) from a certain Prison Break character. It becomes relevant in the webseries storyline as it's also the version that reveals that Tenshirock's wife had low latent inhibition, which eventually lead to her death. It also turns out Tenshirock spent time as Spectre's guildmate before becoming a hacker, figured out his condition and got him to quit the MMORPG they were both playing. Spectre's storyline exists because he ended his retirement during the main timeframe.

During The Adam Carolla Show, Adam claimed to suffer from hyperawareness. His actual complaint was more along the lines of not being able to ignore the little things wrong in a situation the way most people can. (Notable example: on multiple occasions, a caller would phone in and their smoke detector's "low battery" chirp would be overheard on the call. It would drive him nuts that they didn't replace the battery the instant they first heard the chirp.)

Game of Thrones:
Tywin Lannister.
When he notices Arya, who has been disguised as a boy for weeks and whose disguise no one else has been able to see through (besides Gendry Waters who is also quite good at deducing things), he doesn't even need to hear her speak to see through the deception at first glance. He later deduces from tiny clues that she is highborn and from the North.
In a deleted scene, Tywin wonders if he's the only one who sees through Pycelle's act.
Likely inherited from his father; Tyrion is very adept at reading people quickly. He accurately forecasts the imminent riot in "The Old Gods and the New" just by looking over the crowd, and takes steps to get Joffrey's heir Tommen to safety before it sparks.
The aforementioned Gendry is the first and only recruit of the Night's Watch who realizes that Arya is a girl. This is lampshaded by himself. He's also the first one to wake up when the Lannisters come to attack Yoren's party, before Yoren wakes up the rest.
Quaithe the shadowbinder (a.k.a. the masked woman in Qarth) shows her omniscience by knowing Jorah is behind her without seeing him.
Sandor often demonstrates shades of this, presumably honed by having been around Lannisters for so long. He notices the riot in King's Landing before it even breaks out and in "The Rains of Castamere", as soon as the guard began to act suspicious, immediately figured out exactly what's about to go down at the wedding. He's also able to spot a Valryian steel sword and quickly piece together that Brienne of Tarth has been equipped by a Lannister, having spent so much time around their men.
Irri realizes Daenerys is pregnant before she is showing.

Enhanced senses is just one of the many benefits of sinanju in The Destroyer. Remo can fight in the dark using his hearing, detect snipers over distance by the feel of the wind on his arms, determine the number of people in a room from its ambient temperature, and figure out a door code from the residual heat in the buttons the last person touched some hours ago. (Later he simply opens an electronic lock through the sinanju art of manipulating electric signals. Yes, really.) And people think the fighting skills go into the superhuman...

This is apparently an ability that John Coffey has in The Green Mile, from what Paul Edgecomb remembers when he is healed by him. Later, he gets another dose, and realizes that this, along with the fact that he probably would live a long, long life if he wasn't executed, contributes to Coffey's not being bothered by being executed even if he is Wrongly Accused.

It's subtle, but events early on in Fate/stay night show that Shirou has extraordinarily good eyesight; he's able to pick out a single person standing on top of a skyscraper while being on the ground himself. He also has a form of super sense through his magecraft that instinctively lets him know how something is broken, where it is broken and how to fix it just by touch. He pales compared to the supernatural servants, however: Servant Archer can pick out single people in perfect detail from kilometres away, and can instantly identify and discern all details of crafted objects through a cursory glance. Shirou ends up siphoning this ability from him due to the time paradox.

In the Kiseki Series, people who are practitioners of the Eight Leaves, One Blade style are able to sense other people despite being so far away from them, are from a different room, or are in different rooms far away from them. Rean Schwarzer from The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel plays this for laughs in his third game where he's able to sense his students if he's in a room, privately talking with somebody with the door closed and calls them out.

In Warhammer 40,000, followers of the eldritch god Slaanesh have honed their senses to an incredible degree, able to distinguish between the subtlest differences in any of their myriad senses. Why? To enjoy their senses more, of course! This has the unfortunate side-effect of eventually requiring more and more stimulation to reach the same high. Eventually, the worshiper is rendered unable to be roused by anything except the most audacious, perverse, and extreme stimulus.

In Down Periscope, Sonar Technician 2nd Class E.T. "Sonar" Lovacelli can hear how much change is dropped on a nearby submarine. And a crewman eating an Oreo on another deck. And a couple of lobsters dukin' it out. This IS helped by his listening equipment, but it takes more than fancy gear to point out that someone dropped "forty-five cents. A quarter... and two dimes", after jerking as if an explosion went off in his ear after the coins hit the deck. He can also hear a whisper from a long distance away with other, much louder, sounds masking it. Naturally, his former CO considered him a security risk.

Daredevil often has to deal with this as a side-effect of his powers; while he can't actually see due to his blindness, his other four senses are so enhanced that he possesses full awareness of everything around him, with the disadvantage that his enhanced senses can cause him pain if he is exposed to particularly powerful stimuli.

In Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Giles tried to teach Buffy that the Slayer should have a sixth sense about vampires and be capable of identifying one without seeing fangs. Buffy deduced one individual being a vampire because their fashion choice was "20 years out of date."
The original movie said that the Slayer actually had a built-in vampire detector because they will feel muscle cramps when one is nearby. As Buffy said, "Great... PMS is my secret weapon."

This allows him to conveniently play Mr. Exposition for some of Kenshin's fights. It was also used to identify Saito before he could do his big reveal.

The "eagle vision" of the Assassin's Creed series is an inherited Hyper Awareness passed down through a family line, being possessed by every main character across the ages. A person with this trait becomes clued in to their surroundings, instinctively identifying friends, enemies, and any number of other clues and signs relevant to them. It is implied that this ability was gifted to this genetic line by an ancient race of pre-human Precursors living on Earth. Being put in the Animus awakens this latent ability in Desmond Miles, who's story acts as a framing device for those of his ancestors.

Jason Bourne of The Bourne Series series has this because of his Treadstone training. In the third movie this was cranked to insane levels. He was able to direct a journalist through a train station with instructions from a cell phone, all the while avoiding the cameras himself and identifying and disabling The Men in Black agents who are trying to track the journalist down.
The fourth film explains that this is partly thanks to a wonder-drug.

Ravenwing teaches this to the scouts of the Clan of the Hawk in Wandering Ones. At the same time, others in the clan are taking the awareness to a metaphysical level.

Deconstructed in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. The autistic protagonist "sees everything," and at one point he tries to explain this to the reader. He talks about a particular moment of his life, looking at a field of cows, and he remembers the slope of the field and the patterns on the cows and the position of the sun in the sky and one detail after another after another and all of this goes through his conscious mind at once... he can barely handle being in a room he's never been in before, because of all the information crowding in on him at once. Only familiarity makes things better, and he won't even move the furniture in his house to a different configuration for fear of the effect on his mind. He doesn't quite consider this Blessed with Suck, since he's a Sherlock Holmes fanboy and likes being able to use the Sherlock Scan, but it definitely impairs his ability to live a normal life. However, his being autistic (and thus having trouble understanding people) means that, even though he notices all the details a Sherlock Scan requires, he has trouble analysing what those details mean in context and putting together the sort of deduction that Sherlock might.

One of the few people who can hide from him is, predictably, Lord Vetinari (who notably failed all his stealth examinations at the Assassins' Guild because he was marked absent — think about it). Vetinari is so clinically aware that he makes Vimes look normal — despite Vimes being described as "the most cynical bastard that ever walked under the sun". In Guards! Guards! he is shocked and transfixed by the sheer depth of Vetinari's cynicism.

Star Trek: The Next Generation's Data, being an android with perfect recall, has this, and often exasperates his crew mates by picking up on tiny details that are not at all relevant.
