Though not common, there are many blind characters who have appeared in fiction, from television to comics, and other works of fiction as well. These characters have their own unique set of challenges and advantages that are directly connected to their blindness, which makes them even more interesting as characters.

Many times the blind character is the center of focus, suchas Frank Slade in Scent of a Woman and Detective Jim Dunbar in the TV series Blind Justice. A lot of the best blind characters in fiction also end up being supernatural, with the powers of clairvoyance and heightened senses, such as in the case of Doctor Mid-Nite, Cassandra Craft, and Pamela Barnes.
