* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'':
** Happens when the fact that some of Index's bites are apparently going for Touma's eye sockets.
** Shiage gouges out Mugino's eye. She gets an artificial one later.
** Othinus gave up her right eye for the power of Odin. [[spoiler:She reveals that if her eye is returned to her, she will lose her powers and become human.]]

* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'':
** Happens
Eye trauma is a mainstay in the manga by Creator/SuehiroMaruo: people are blinded (sometimes self inflicted, always bloodily) with anything from needles to katana; eyeballs are dug out of their sockets with spoon and fork. On a more gentle side, licking of eyeballs during sexual acts is his trademark.
* The Ryugu Shelter arc from ''Manga/SevenSeeds'' includes [[spoiler: a disease carried that involves parasitoids that feast off the host's body for as long as possible. Once the incubation time is through, the parasitoids ''eat their way out through the eyeballs'']]!
* In ''Anime/AfroSamurai'', Brother Two is forever using a pair of digital binoculars. He dies
when Afro pulls his eyes out and ''shoves the fact that some of Index's bites are apparently going for Touma's eye sockets.
** Shiage gouges out Mugino's eye. She gets an artificial
binoculars into his skull'' -- complete with one later.
** Othinus gave up her right eye for
last shot of the power of Odin. [[spoiler:She reveals that if her eye is returned to her, she will lose her powers and become human.]]binocular viewpoint, blood oozing over the lenses.



* In Literature/{{Another}}, Mei Misaki lost an eye as a little girl due to illness so she has a fake one behind an EyepatchOfPower. In the manga, however, she gets stabbed through her empty eye by [[spoiler: Izumi Akazawa]]
* In ''Manga/ArataKangatari'', Kadowaki has his eye ripped out by Akachi's Hayagami.
* ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'': [[spoiler:Shiro/Yanagisawa got his left eye pierced with a piece of glass thrown out by the newly-created Koro-sensei when he went on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against him and the scientists that made him.]]
* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', one unlucky scout lost his eyes (among other injuries) when his team was overwhelmed by Titans summoned by the Female Titan. As a Titan prepares to devour him, he spends his last moments begging someone to warn the other scouts of the Female Titan, unable to see that he is the last survivor of his team (for a few seconds anyway).
** Gouging a Titan's eyes out is a fairly viable tactic, as they recoil in pain and are blind until they regenerate them. This presents humans with a window of opportunity to go for the neck and put the abomination down for good.
* Subverted at 1:26 of ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'''s infamous "[[http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=37mPoKQijj8&feature=related Osaka and the Knife]]" scene, in a possible parody of the aforementioned ''Film/UnChienAndalou''.
* In a flashback in ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'', Czeslaw Meyer gets stabbed in the eye with a red-hot poker. [[GoodThingYouCanHeal Good thing he can heal]]… [[AFateWorseThanDeath or not]].
** Also, episode 15 finally reveals just how Nice Holystone got that eye-patch of hers first-hand. [[{{Squick}} It's as hard to watch as you'd think.]]
*** Let's cut the chase: She played with gunpowder as a child. She hasn't learned her lesson, either — she keeps a spare bomb ''[[{{Squick}} in her empty eye socket!]]''
** In the light novels, [[spoiler:Firo]] takes one of [[spoiler:Huey's]] eyes as part of a plan orchestrated by [[spoiler:Renee. Huey]] actually is willing to accept this, as long as he gets one of [[spoiler:Renee's]] eyes in return. ''Furthermore,'' [[spoiler:Huey's daughter Leeza]] gets revenge on [[spoiler:Firo]] by taking one of his eyes. "An eye for an eye" was in full force during those novels.



* During one battle in ''Anime/LegendOfGalacticHeroes'', several scenes depicting the brutality of war are shown. In one case, a man is killed by an explosion in his ship, and we are treated to a visual of his eyes boiling and subsequently bursting. Pleasant stuff.
** In episode 63, Olivier Poplin hurls a hypodermic syringe straight into the eye of a Terraist doctor while he and his companions are trapped on Earth.
* ''Manga/ChoujinSensen'': Readers should expect a few eyeballs being gouged out during each fight.
* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': In the Mazinger vs Great General of Darkness feature, [[TheHero Kouji]] shot Mazinger's drilling missiles right in the eye of a [[{{Robeast}} Mykene Warrior Beast]]. The tiny missiles drilled through its eye and exploded inside its brain, and the monster screamed in pain as it happened. Ouch. And in another episode, Sayaka blew up with her HumongousMecha TorpedoTits the only weak points of the Mechanical Beast Gumbina M5… its eyes. Double ouch.
* ''Anime/PerfectBlue'': The corpses of each murder victim are shown to have their eyes gouged out. One man is killed from being stabbed in the eye and ''his crotch'' followed by repeated stabbing all over his body.
* In ''VisualNovel/{{Shuffle}}'', as a child, Kaede is seen standing at the top of a flight of stairs and coldly orders Rin to pick up some writing utensils she had dropped at the bottom. Rin busies himself with the task so he doesn't notice when Kaede secretly takes out a boxcutter, stretches her arm out and (somehow) drops it directly above Rin. Rin looks up at the moment when the knife comes careening down and it slices his right eye. He gets better.
* ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End of Evangelion]]'' loves this. [[spoiler: Unit 02 takes a Lance of Longinus replica to the face, causing Asuka to have her left eye put out. Later, Shinji causes Instrumentality to fail by bursting through Lilith/Rei's eyeball with the Lance of Longinus after being absorbed through a vagina-eye in her forehead. Dead fucking serious.]]
** Also in the series itself: In the very first fight with the 3rd angel, Unit 01 gets shot repeatedly in the eye by the angel's laser at point blank range. The result? Unit 01 flies back about 100 yards and [[HighPressureBlood bleeds profusely]] out of both sides of its head where it was shot.
** In ''End of Evangelion'', during Asuka's "I don't want to die" bit, the viewer is treated with several flashing images including a picture of a decaying Asuka with a sewn-up mouth and maggots crawling out of her hollow eye sockets. Long story short Evangelion has a thing for horrifying people.
* Vicious, the BigBad of ''Anime/CowboyBebop'', lives up to his name in episode 25 when he violently takes over leadership of the Red Dragon. The way he deals with one of the three leaders of TheSyndicate can be best summed up in these words: [[TearsOfBlood "You will shed tears of scarlet."]]
** In the first episode, Jet grabs a thug in a headlock and threatens to jab him in the eye with a broken beer bottle ([[HeyYouHaymaker after having smashed the thug's buddy in the face with the bottle]]). Also in that episode, after dropping his injector, Asimov attempts to squeeze the bottle carrying the drug he's been using directly into his eye only to shatter it, getting glass shards in his eye.
* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'': In Hatori's backstory, when he tried to get permission from Akito to marry Kana, Akito's violent disapproval ended with Hatori's left eye getting badly injured, ''while Kana was watching''. The event traumatized Kana to the point where Hatori decided to suppress her memories of their time together so that she wouldn't be in any more pain.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' has a thing for blasting out the protagonists' right eyes. It happened to [[spoiler:Lockon and Allelujah]]. Extra points to the latter for removing the eye that represented that character's [[spoiler:SuperpoweredEvilSide]], [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic symbolic]] of that side's loss.
** It is later revealed [[spoiler: in episode 7 of season 2 that Allelujah didn't lost his right eye, he was actually hit in the forehead and the reason he covered his right eye was because of the blood flowing. [[NotQuiteDead His Alter ego is just "sleeping"]].]]
* When confronted by Mai, Natsuki and Midori in a late ''Anime/MaiHime'' episode [[spoiler: after Yukariko's WoundedGazelleGambit]], local DarkMagicalGirl Nao Yuuki catches a stinger right into her left eye from her own CHILD, Julia. After pulling out the stinger, she notices her hand covered in blood, and gets ''extremely'' [[FreakOut pissed off]].
* The eponymous girls from ''Manga/GunslingerGirl'' are extremely resilient to physical attacks, to the point that they can't be shot down by just a few bullets. Their only true weak point is their eyes, which gets addressed in a rather gruesome way in Elsa's story, [[spoiler: when she gets fed up with her handler Lauro's ''extreme'' neglection, shoots him dead, and then commits suicide by shooting herself in an eye]].
** A fact that the professional assassin Pinocchio also seems to understand, as demonstrated when he attempts to finish his fight with Triela by shoving a key through her right eye. [[spoiler:More incredibly, Triela counters (and kills) him by stabbing her ''fingers'' through his throat.]]
** And again invoked when [[spoiler:right before dying, Jose kills Henrietta via shooting her in the eye.]]
* In ''Manga/DGrayMan'', [[spoiler:Road Kamelot directs several sharpened candles towards Allen. All of them miss except one, which lands straight into his left eye. Doesn't help that's the eye that detects Akuma either… It gets better, though.]]
** And then we get to see his partially regrown-but-still-not-there eye-socket!
** How he got the curse on his eye: in the backstory, when [[spoiler:the resurrected Mana was ordered to kill Allen]], he sliced up his face all around his left eye, leaving [[GoodScarsEvilScars a very obvious scar]] and an Akuma-detecting curse that another character quickly ceases to think of as [[CursedWithAwesome lucky for Allen]] when he briefly ends up sharing it.
* In ''Manga/ElfenLied'', Bando, after getting his limbs mangled by Lucy's strong-enough-to-split-a-tank-in-two psychic powers, vows revenge by saying, "The next time I see you, you're dead." Being the amoral, violent sociopath she is, Lucy '''[[ThreatBackfire quickly]]''' [[LiteralMinded sees a way around that…]]
** Given the general dark, gory tone of Elfen Lied, he was practically TemptingFate.
** When she was younger, Lucy killed another girl who betrayed her by slamming two of her vectors through the girls head, with only bloody eye sockets remaining where her eyes had been.

* [[spoiler:Vice's little sister]] in ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' gets a [[StunGuns magical bullet]] in the eye, though it eventually gets better. LittleMissBadass Cinque wasn't quite as lucky.

* ''Manga/InuYasha'' has more than one invocatuion of this trope:
** Kaede was subjected to this when she was a little girl, and this had already happened before her sister Kikyou's death. The anime and the manga difer on how this happened: in the first [[spoiler: the culprit is Kikyo's old rival Tsubaki]], while in the latter [[spoiler: it's implied Inuyasha's attack was responsible.]] Now that she's a CoolOldLady, she covers her empty socket with an EyepatchOfPower.
** Inuyasha has a portal that leads to his father's grave in his pupil, which Sesshomaru decides to pull out in order to use it. In the anime, Sesshoumaru grabs Inuyasha in a NeckLift and forcibly pours his magic into a screaming Inu's eye to dig out the black pearl sealing it. In the manga, on the other hand, Sesshomaru does it the good old-fashioned way by ''stabbing him in the same eye'' and taking out the pearl with his fingernails (GoodThingYouCanHeal).
** Fast Forward to [[spoiler:Kanna's suicide. This is a SubvertedTrope because even though a glass shard touched Kagome's eye it did little to no permanent damage to the eye and [[DeathEqualsRedemption Kanna would give Kagome advice on Naraku's weakness for ordering her death]]]].
** In the arc dealing with Tsubaki the Dark {{Miko}}, there is more than one eye-related injury. When Kagome deflects an attack from Tsubaki's snake familiar with her bow, it's absorbed into a screaming Tsubaki's left eye, and soon it's shown that Kikyou once did ''exactly'' the same to her in their fight for the right to hold the Shikon Jewel. And in the anime, not only does Tsubaki merge with a powerful unsealed demon via having it enter her body through her eye, but when Naraku gets fed up and sends one of his insects to collect Tsubaki's Shikon shards, it's done via ''having said insect pass through her head, collect the shard, and then leave through Tsubaki's eye''. OUCH.
* ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'':
** A flashback shows a young Seras putting a fork through the eye of an assailant. [[spoiler:Zorin Blitz, who forced her to re-experience that memory presses her eyes against her scythe's blade afterward, brutally slashing both eyes. Seras gets better.]]
** The scene with Jan Valentine in ''Ultimate Hellsing'' OVA 2. During his infamous "I highly recommend ''pissing'' yourselves, followed by a course of praying to your impotent ''God!''" spiel, he places his thumb atop the eye of the decapitated head he's playing with and presses down hard causing the eyeball to burst and blood to shoot out.
** It actually happens at least once per OVA to the point that it's become a ''RunningGag''. Whenever Alucard shoots his opponents in the head or impales them, we're treated to a nice shot of their eyeballs flying out of the sockets.

* ''Manga/ChoujinSensen'': Readers should expect a few eyeballs being gouged out during each fight.
* Creator/{{CLAMP}} seems to have a definite [[AuthorAppeal eye fetish]] for all the times characters end up losing/going blind in one eye. Depending on how dark the particular series is, the event may be a comparatively gentle loss of sight in the eye while the eye itself remains intact; in other cases, however, the eye itself may be physically damaged or even violently torn out. There's generally a "loss of innocence" or "uncomfortable revelation" motif tied to the loss of an eye, but it's also often played as a dramatic sign of devotion. This trope, along with [[HoYay another trope they're known for]] has become so prevalent in their works, in fact, that their fanbase's motto is "every time you deny a shounen-ai pairing, CLAMP put another eye out."
** Seishirou Sakurazuka in ''Manga/TokyoBabylon'' loses an eye while protecting his special friend Subaru,
and it was implied that he would likely go blind in the Knife]]" scene, other eye as a result.
** Subsequently in ''Manga/{{X1999}}'', Subaru gets his eye torn out by Fuuma during their fight. Since Fuuma's gig at that time was granting people's darkest innermost wishes, it turns out that Subaru ''wanted'' to lose his eye out of a feeling of guilt for Seishirou losing ''his'' eye back in Tokyo Babylon. (He even briefly sees Fuuma as Seishirou, ffs!)
** In the manga, [[spoiler: Fuuma finds and then gives Seishirou's good eye to Subaru after the other's death. It seems Seishirou's wish was to [[HoYay eliminate any mark left by another man on Subaru]]. By accepting the eye Subaru also accepts Seishirou's powers and title as the Sakurazukamori, AND his role as a dragon or earth. It is later revealed that he does not wish do die anymore because it would mean that Seishirou's eye would die with him.]]
** Doumeki and Watanuki go back and forth over this one in ''Manga/XxxHOLiC''. After Doumeki brushes a demonic spiderweb off Watanuki, he starts to go blind in one eye as a result of the [[DisproportionateRetribution spider demon's vengeance]]. Watanuki then makes a deal to take the spider demon's vengeance on himself, resulting in ''him'' going blind in one eye. Doumeki gets pissed off when he finds out that Watanuki has done this, and strikes a deal that he will share half ''his'' eye with Watanuki, giving them both oddly colored but functional eyesight.
** Kokuyo in ''Manga/{{Wish}}'' gives Hisui his left eye as a sign of their lovers' bond.
** In the ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' WhamEpisode, Fai uses magic openly for the first time when attempting to [[spoiler: prevent the clone of Syaoran from losing his soul and turning evil.]] When he fails, [[spoiler: the clone]] rips out his eye and eats it. He intended to go on and eat the other one as well, but he got interrupted.'
** In episode 5 of ''Anime/BloodC'', Saya fights an [[EldritchAbomination Elder Bairn]] that has ''an eyeball'' for a head, which leads to this. And in the end of Episode 12, [[spoiler: BigBad Fumito blasts Saya in her left eye, also blowing off quite a part of her head. Good thing that Saya has a massive HealingFactor and thus lives to tell, but it still takes her a while to heal; in the meantime, she rips her skirt and uses the piece of cloth as an EyepatchOfPower]].
** Another fan (or possibly detractor) meme riffs on an old American proverb: "It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye... and then, it's a CLAMP manga."
* Vicious, the BigBad of ''Anime/CowboyBebop'', lives up to his name in episode 25 when he violently takes over leadership of the Red Dragon. The way he deals with one of the three leaders of TheSyndicate can be best summed up in these words: [[TearsOfBlood "You will shed tears of scarlet."]]
** In the first episode, Jet grabs a thug
in a possible parody headlock and threatens to jab him in the eye with a broken beer bottle ([[HeyYouHaymaker after having smashed the thug's buddy in the face with the bottle]]). Also in that episode, after dropping his injector, Asimov attempts to squeeze the bottle carrying the drug he's been using directly into his eye only to shatter it, getting glass shards in his eye.
* In the ''Anime/CodeGeass'' spin-off Manga ''Suzaku
of the Counterattack'', Schneizel [[spoiler: prevents Lelouch from using his Geass on him by ''puncturing his left eye''.]]
* In ''Manga/ChronoCrusade'', Jenai had his eyes sliced out during a battle with Pandaemonium. Later in the series he takes off the visor he wears over his blind eyes and reveals the badly stitched-up eye sockets, explaining how the Greeks used to put coins in the eyes of the dead to help pay for their fare on the River Styx...and then proceeds to pull out bloody coins he keeps in his eye sockets, offering to pay the heroine's way to the afterlife. It's a very, ''very'' creepy scene that establishes him firmly as a villain, although his blindness is also portrayed sympathetically in a later scene.
* In the "Conclusion: God's War" manga arc of Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}, [[spoiler: Francoise aka 003]] get subjected to this ''and'' [[AnArmAndALeg loses an arm]]. [[spoiler: She's outfitted with new ones, but is so traumatized by the shit that's going on that she comes to hate them and tears those ones out after a while, and spends the rest of the arc completely blind.]]
* ''CorpseParty: Tortured Souls'': [[DeathByAdaptation Of the two characters who aren't supposed to die]], one has a knife stabbed at an eye and bleeds out heavily, while another has a whole eyeball ripped out.
** Ayumi's standin for Yuki being eyepoked and murdered in a flashback is also very explicit compared to the game.
* In ''Manga/DGrayMan'', [[spoiler:Road Kamelot directs several sharpened candles towards Allen. All of them miss except one, which lands straight into his left eye. Doesn't help that's the eye that detects Akuma either… It gets better, though.]]
** And then we get to see his partially regrown-but-still-not-there eye-socket!
** How he got the curse on his eye: in the backstory, when [[spoiler:the resurrected Mana was ordered to kill Allen]], he sliced up his face all around his left eye, leaving [[GoodScarsEvilScars a very obvious scar]] and an Akuma-detecting curse that another character quickly ceases to think of as [[CursedWithAwesome lucky for Allen]] when he briefly ends up sharing it.
* From the manga ''Dead End'': (paraphrased) "Do I ''look'' okay? I have ''needles'' where my ''eyes'' are supposed to be!"
* In ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'', participants who lose in the Carnival Corpse matches have to play a game of roulette to determine which body part of theirs will be removed. After Senji is defeated by Ganta, his right eye is torn out in consequence for research (though he gets better within a couple of chapters.)
* In ''Manga/TheDemonOroron'', Othello decides he likes Mitsume's third eye, so he rips it out and swaps one of his own eyes with it.
* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'':
** In the {{Non Serial Movie}} ''The Last Wizard of the Century'', the three murder victims are shot through their left eyes. [[spoiler: The killer, a DarkActionGirl named Seiran "Scorpion" Hoshi, does so because she's a descendant of Rasputin, whose post-RasputinianDeath body was found without its left eye. She attempts to do it to Conan, but his new bulletproof glasses save him. Oh, and one of the victims survived -- he was Kaito KID and he was wearing a special HighClassGlass.]]
** Inspector Kansuke Yamato, the local HandicappedBadass, both lost his left eye (which he keeps permanently closed, [[ScarsAreForever thanks to two big scars on it]]) ''and'' got a huge injury on his leg in [[SnowMeansDeath a snow avalanche]] that he ''barely'' survived to.
** Superintendent Kiyonaga Matsumoto sports a LARGE scar across his left eye, meaning he was subjected to this in the past. [[spoiler: [[http://mangafox.me/manga/detective_conan/v64/c670/3.html He got it]] while chasing after a dangerous SerialKiller, who used his [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]] to slash Matsumoto across said eye. [[BadAss He retaliated by taking the guy's katana and slashing him across the back]].]]
** Also, one of the VERY few hints about the NumberTwo of the Black Organization's identity is that they lack an eye. (The others are that [[spoiler: he's a man]] and anoher is that [[spoiler: he uses a cane]].) Among those who fit in are [[spoiler:
the aforementioned ''Film/UnChienAndalou''.Inspector Yamato]] and [[spoiler: his boss, Hyoue Kuroda, a BadassGrandpa who has half his face ''horribly'' scarred around his eyes.]]
* The ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' movie "Runaway Locomon" features a battle against several big eyed digimon. What is disturbing (but not surprising) is to see the main character impale several of them through the eye, cutting them with the tip of his lance, complete with green slimy liquid coming out of it. This aired on ''Disney'' [[spoiler: which edited just the graphical cutting and impaling of the first monster; the others though...]]
* In ''Anime/DogDays'', Adelaide shoots Valerio in the eyes. PlayedForLaughs, as they heal up instantly and Valerio has a comical reaction.
* In ''Manga/DogsBulletsAndCarnage'', one of Heine's flashbacks shows [[spoiler:Lily reaching up to caress Giovanni's face... and then gouging both his eyes out with her thumbs]].
** Badou also had an eye cut out years before the current storyline.
* Iris and Anemone of ''Manga/{{Dokuhime}}'' are identical twins belonging to a group in which perfect beauty is a prized attribute. Anemone loses an eye falling from a cliff, and being no longer perfect, must be removed from the group, either voluntarily becoming an assassin or being killed. Iris, her face still perfect, is allowed to remain, but instead chooses to [[spoiler: ''poke out her own eye'' with a glowing branch from the fire, in order to remain a reflection of Anemone.]]
--> "I am Iris's right eye." "I am Anemone's left eye."



* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has a somewhat famous example in Maximillion Pegasus (Pegasus J. Crawford, in Japan). Throughout most of the Duelist Kingdom arc, Pegasus possesses the Millennium Eye, which takes the place of his own left eye. He wasn't born with it... the 4Kids dub removes the blood, but keeps a silhouetted introduction process, right along with Pegasus's agonized screams. At the end of Duelist Kingdom, Bakura rips the Millenium Eye out of Pegasus's head. In the manga, he gives him one of Pegasus's own replica Millenium eyes; not that it does him much good, [[spoiler:Bakura having killed Pegasus in the process and all]]. TheMovie later had Pegasus show Kaiba what can only be assumed to be an empty socket or the dummy eye, and we get to see Kaiba squirm in response.
** Horribly and hilariously {{Lampshaded}} in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'':
--->* pop* \\
'''Pegasus:''' AGH! That's the WRONG EYEBALL, you fool!\\
'''Bakura:''' Oh, sorry.\\
* pop* \\
'''Pegasus:''' Much better.
*** Referenced yet again in the re-cap episode:
---> '''Bakura:''' I spy, with my little eye, something that begins with "I". Guess what? It's your eye!
--->'''Pegasus:''' But "eye" doesn't start with--
--->*pop!*
** And in ''Manga/YuGiOhR'', Pegasus' [[SempaiKohai protege]] Yako gets his own version. There's no apparent physical trauma, but immediately after [[StartOfDarkness Yako finds evidence of what happened to Pegasus]], his iris seemingly melts and runs down his face. Every other time we see Yako, both of his eyes are intact, though he does have a serious case of MadEye going throughout the series.
** In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', there are two examples. Jim Cook has one of his eyes replaced by the Orichalcum Eye [[spoiler: (though it's done in a discretion shot, it is implied he smashed his original eye out falling into a river.]] The second one involves Yubel. [[spoiler: When Juudai's memories of their past return, his present self hovers over Yubel as she's being worked on by whoever is managing the transformation. It's made fairly clear they're removing or changing her eyes to be the magical ones they are in the present. The viewer isn't actually shown what happens, but Juudai winces at whatever it is he sees.]]
* In ''Anime/AfroSamurai'', Brother Two is forever using a pair of digital binoculars. He dies when Afro pulls his eyes out and ''shoves the binoculars into his skull'' -- complete with one last shot of the binocular viewpoint, blood oozing over the lenses.
* In ''Manga/{{Kaiji}}'', the titular character at one point has to bet an eye or an ear in a card game. This is accomplished by way of a small machine with a tiny drill that attaches over the organ in question -- every time he loses, the drill point will move a little bit closer... This would be bad enough, but the animation does us the questionable favor of explaining this by ''graphically animating, '''in cross-section''', how the drill would move in and destroy his eye!'' Perhaps unsurprisingly, Kaiji chooses to bet his ear instead. (Then we're treated to repeated graphic demonstrations of how it would destroy his ''ear'', just in case we weren't traumatized enough yet.)
* In the ''Manga/{{Shigurui}}'' manga, Irako Seigen gets slashed across the eyes (no spoiler because that's how he was shown in the first chapter). At first you just see a line across the bridge of his nose; then it starts to bleed, with clear fluid coming out of the cuts in his eyes. Then it gets [[http://mangavolume.com/index.php?serie=shigurui=shigurui-15&page_nr=22 really freaky]].
* In ''Manga/HellTeacherNube'', the local {{Ojou}} is possessed by an {{obake}} that takes the form of a [[EyesDoNotBelongThere monstrous eye erupting from her hand]]. She tries to remove it by using this trope and stabbing it out. Unfortunately, not only does it keep growing back, the monster takes over her body more and more, ''extending the eyes all over her''.
* Though but one of the many [[BodyHorror gruesome, horrifying things]] that the mushi from ''Manga/{{Mushishi}}'' can do to your body, but the author seems to have a special love of strange things living in, feeding off, or bursting out of peoples' eyes. (Thematically, this may be linked to the fact that mushi are InvisibleToNormals.) Just be glad that they don't exist. [[ParanoiaFuel Maybe]].
** The author admits that eye trauma freaks her out, hence the ''giant blob of stuff'' oozing out of a little girl's eyes, a blind singer's eyes [[spoiler: crawling away!]] and [[spoiler: Ginko's eye being eaten by a powerful mushi which will eventually claim the rest of him]].
* ''Anime/NinjaScroll'': This is the result when Jubei determines that [[MadeOfIron Tessai]] is not quite “hard as rock all over.”
* In ''Manga/TheDemonOroron'', Othello decides he likes Mitsume's third eye, so he rips it out and swaps one of his own eyes with it.
* In ''Manga/{{Gungrave}}'' Brandon Heat takes a bullet point-blank in his left eye, and is killed. He gets better... ish... when he is revived as the gunslinging techno-zombie Beyond the Grave. Although he still [[ScarsAreForever doesn't get his eye back]].
* In ''Manga/RoseOfVersailles'', [[spoiler: André Grandier]] loses an eye ''very'' messily ([[spoiler: via having said ''slashed with a sword's pointy tip'']]) midway the story while protecting Oscar. [[ActionGirl She]] [[ItsPersonal does]] ''[[UnstoppableRage not]]'' [[{{Revenge}} take that]] kindly and almost ''kills'' the culprit, a local WellIntentionedExtremist, but backs off at the last moment [[IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim to not fall as low as the guy]]. [[spoiler: He gets CharacterDevelopment, becomes an IntrepidReporter and marries Rosalie, Oscar's protégée.]]
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' Kishimoto is a BIG fan of the trope, as well as eye transplants. To start, we have the part where [[spoiler: Itachi uses the Tsukoyomi to simulate popping Sasuke's eye out of its socket. He freaking PLUCKED IT OUT.]]
** In the anime, it's not pretty either. You see [[spoiler: Sasuke's eye slowly bulge out of its socket as Itachi removes it.]] Thank GOD for the GoryDiscretionShot. That said, we get the same thing with Izuna and Madara, only Sasuke gets splattered with Izuna's blood. Nice.
** [[spoiler:[[BigBad Madara Uchiha]]]] actually '''stabs out''' [[spoiler: his own brother]]'s eyes in order to [[spoiler: transplant them into his own eye sockets to counteract the effects of his DeadlyUpgrade]].
** In chapter 551 this is how [[spoiler: Itachi nullifies the Rinnegan's "shared vision" ability: By throwing kunai into the eyes of Nagato's summoned creatures.]]
** ''Kakashi Gaiden'': [[spoiler:Kakashi got his one Sharingan eye when his old, regular eye was damaged in a fight, and Obito, after getting mortally wounded and recently unlocking his Sharingan, has Rin surgically replace Kakashi's with one of his while they're both conscious.]]
** Pain tried to kill [[spoiler:Kakashi]] by shooting a nail into his eye. [[spoiler:It didn't work]].
** Also, in a final act of defiance against Madara, [[spoiler:Danzo]] destroyed [[spoiler:Shisui's Sharingan eye]] which he had implanted to prevent Madara from using it. This was thankfully offscreen.
** In chapter 590 in Itachi's memory after Shisui says Danzou stole his right eye he literally takes out his other eye and gives it to Itachi to prevent Danzou from having it.
** [[spoiler:Madara casually rips Kakashi's eye out ''while running past him'' and puts it in himself, [[ArtisticLicenseBiology without damaging the eye or either of their sockets, and without having to reconnect the optic nerve]], then uses Kamui to go to Obito's dimension in an attempt to get his Rinnegan back.]]
** The last but not least example: in ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'', [[spoiler: BigBad Toneri (who already is eye-less) rips out the eyes of Hinata's little sister Hanabi, so he can use them to activate the Tenseigan after marrying Hinata. Fortunately, [[BigSisterInstinct Hinata]] rips the stolen eyes off ''him'' and gives them back to her sister.]]
** ''Anime/BorutoNarutoTheMovie'' has an unusual example [[spoiler:due to the BigBad having a Rinnegan in each hand in addition to the two Byakugan and forehead Rinnegan on his face, and only the eye in his right hand is stabbed because the heroes needed to get past its ninjutsu absorbing abilities.]]
* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'':
** Played with in Hiei's case. His Jagan Eye transplant, which is a ThirdEye in the middle of his forehead, is described as being the most intense, excruciating pain he's ever felt in his entire life. It seems the process involves a drill like machine ''burrowing'' into the patient's forehead, then implanting the Jagan, which then proceeds to absorb an assload of the patient's energy.
*** Made even worse in the anime when the doctor, a CombatMedic demon named Shigure, claims that the patient has to be strapped to the bed to prevent them from clawing their own eyes out due to the pain. [[ScreamDiscretionShot The scene cuts to outside Shigure's compound, and the viewers hear a bloodcurdling scream from Hiei.]]
** [[CodeName Doctor]] gets a jar of acid thrown in his eye in the Chapter Black saga
** Played straight with King Yomi, who during a battle in his past had both of his eyes slashed by swords at close range [[spoiler: at the orders of his then-partner Kurama, who was pissed off at him for being a LeeroyJenkins]]. Ouch! Luckily, he managed to wound his assailant with an accidental stab, thus saving himself from death; he later grows into a massive HandicappedBadass, with a super developed [[DisabilitySuperpower sense of hearing]].
* Violent fight comic ''Manga/{{Shamo}}'' is chock full of cringe-inducing, vision-averting EyeScream moments, including how [[VillainProtagonist Ryo Narushima]] won a qualifying match, as well as how a later seen character made him''self'' blind. The worst part? No weapons assisted in these blinding moments, just fingers and toes involved.
* Rokudo Mukuro from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' jams his finger into his right eye to activate the Fifth Path, the State of Humans. Apparently, he recovers.
** Also, during their fight together, after Mukuro pretends that what was lunging at Tsuna was just an illusion, he quickly reveals that it was actually a stone after smashing it into Tsuna's eye area in order to catch him off guard and attempt to possess his body.
* You want some EyeScream? Watch ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfJZ6nwxD38&feature=related Barefoot Gen, Hiroshima Destroyed.]]'' [[spoiler: Within the first minute, ''a child's eyeballs MELT OUT OF HER HEAD.'']]
* Happens a lot in the ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' film series.
** In the fourth movie, where [[spoiler: Shiki crushes her eyes when her mind cannot handle Eyes of Death Perception. She also tries to do it again another time, but is stopped. She got better.]]
** In the fifth movie "Paradox Spiral": near the beginning, when Enjou Tomoe beats off a delinquent chasing him by shoving a thumb through his eye, and near the end, a scene... which probably shouldn't be described for reasons of {{Squick}}.
** And in the seventh movie, [[spoiler: Mikiya is attacked by Rio with a knife wound to his face, losing his left eye in the process. He got better despite losing his eye; Rio intended to kill him after all.]]
* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''
** Jonathan Joestar gets a thumb in his eye in just the second chapter. It ends with him yelling "My eye is bleeding!" Later Dio gets his, via a rose stem.
** ''Weaponized'' by Dio and latter [[spoiler: Straitzo.]] Vampires can shoot pressurized vitreous humor (eye jelly) as an attack. The attack is named "Space Ripper Stingy Eyes." [[GoodThingYouCanHeal Good thing (sorta) that vampires can heal quickly!]]
** There are several examples in Part 3 as well: the possessed nurse in Kakyoin's introduction arc, Silver Chariot's opening salvo on Devo, and N'Doul's incapacitation of Kakyoin.
** In Part 2, [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Wham/Wam/Waam/Whamuu]] damages his own eyes so he'll take a fight more seriously. He can regenerate them, being a super-vampire, [[spoiler:although he never gets a chance to before he's killed]].
** In Part 4, Hazamada attempts to do this to Josuke with his Stand ability. It doesn't work, but it ''would'' have if the wound had been just a few millimeters deeper.
* There is a manga adaptation of ''{{Hamlet}}'' where Ophelia swings her locket at Hamlet, catching him in the eye and leaving it horrifically bloodshot for the rest of the story. It does make for a neat bit of symbolism.

to:

* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has According to Creator/YoshihiroTatsumi's autobiography, ''Manga/ADriftingLife'', his older brother never lost a somewhat famous example in Maximillion Pegasus (Pegasus J. Crawford, in Japan). Throughout most of fight with the Duelist Kingdom arc, Pegasus possesses the Millennium Eye, which takes the place of local bullies, despite his own left crippling Tuberculosis, because he'd always go straight for their eyes.
* The manga ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'', depicts Erika and Walker torturing a man by imitating a scene from ''Manga/BlackButler'', by branding his
eye. He wasn't born with it... the 4Kids dub removes the blood, but keeps a silhouetted introduction process, right along with Pegasus's agonized screams. At the end of Duelist Kingdom, Bakura rips the Millenium Eye out of Pegasus's head. In the manga, he gives him one of Pegasus's own replica Millenium eyes; not that it does him much good, [[spoiler:Bakura having killed Pegasus in the process and all]]. TheMovie later had Pegasus show Kaiba what can only be assumed to be an empty socket or the dummy eye, and we get to see Kaiba squirm in response.

In the anime, it's PlayedForLaughs, by just seeing comical struggling from outside the van, just barely skimming over how twisted these kids are.
* In ''Manga/ElfenLied'', Bando, after getting his limbs mangled by Lucy's strong-enough-to-split-a-tank-in-two psychic powers, vows revenge by saying, "The next time I see you, you're dead." Being the amoral, violent sociopath she is, Lucy '''[[ThreatBackfire quickly]]''' [[LiteralMinded sees a way around that…]]
** Given the general dark, gory tone of Elfen Lied, he was practically TemptingFate.
** When she was younger, Lucy killed another girl who betrayed her by slamming two of her vectors through the girls head, with only bloody eye sockets remaining where
her eyes to be had been.

* ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End of Evangelion]]'' loves this. [[spoiler: Unit 02 takes a Lance of Longinus replica to the face, causing Asuka to have her left eye put out. Later, Shinji causes Instrumentality to fail by bursting through Lilith/Rei's eyeball with the Lance of Longinus after being absorbed through a vagina-eye in her forehead. Dead fucking serious.

* In ''Anime/AfroSamurai'', Brother Two is forever using a pair of digital binoculars. He dies when Afro pulls his eyes out and ''shoves ** Also in the binoculars into his skull'' -- complete series itself: In the very first fight with one last the 3rd angel, Unit 01 gets shot of repeatedly in the binocular viewpoint, blood oozing over eye by the lenses.
* In ''Manga/{{Kaiji}}'', the titular character
angel's laser at one point has blank range. The result? Unit 01 flies back about 100 yards and [[HighPressureBlood bleeds profusely]] out of both sides of its head where it was shot.
** In ''End of Evangelion'', during Asuka's "I don't want
to bet an eye or an ear in a card game. This is accomplished by way of a small machine with a tiny drill that attaches over die" bit, the organ in question -- every time he loses, the drill point will move a little bit closer... This would be bad enough, but the animation does us the questionable favor of explaining this by ''graphically animating, '''in cross-section''', how the drill would move in and destroy his eye!'' Perhaps unsurprisingly, Kaiji chooses to bet his ear instead. (Then we're viewer is treated to repeated graphic demonstrations of how it would destroy his ''ear'', just in case we weren't traumatized enough yet.)
* In the ''Manga/{{Shigurui}}'' manga, Irako Seigen gets slashed across the eyes (no spoiler because that's how he was shown in the first chapter). At first you just see a line across the bridge of his nose; then it starts to bleed,
with clear fluid coming several flashing images including a picture of a decaying Asuka with a sewn-up mouth and maggots crawling out of the cuts in his eyes. Then it gets [[http://mangavolume.com/index.php?serie=shigurui=shigurui-15&page_nr=22 really freaky]].
* In ''Manga/HellTeacherNube'', the local {{Ojou}} is possessed by an {{obake}} that takes the form of a [[EyesDoNotBelongThere monstrous

[[spoiler: He gets CharacterDevelopment, becomes an IntrepidReporter and marries Rosalie, Oscar's protégée.]]
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' Kishimoto is a BIG fan of the trope, as well as eye transplants. To start, we have the part where [[spoiler: Itachi uses the Tsukoyomi to simulate popping Sasuke's eye out of its socket. He freaking PLUCKED IT OUT.]]
** In the anime, it's not pretty either. You see [[spoiler: Sasuke's eye slowly bulge out of its socket as Itachi removes it.]] Thank GOD for the GoryDiscretionShot. That said, we get the same thing with Izuna and Madara, only Sasuke gets splattered with Izuna's blood. Nice.
** [[spoiler:[[BigBad Madara Uchiha]]]]
fact he presses two pressure points that actually '''stabs out''' [[spoiler: his own brother]]'s eyes in order to [[spoiler: transplant them into his own eye sockets to counteract increases the effects flow of his DeadlyUpgrade]].
** In chapter 551 this is how [[spoiler: Itachi nullifies
blood on the Rinnegan's "shared vision" ability: By throwing kunai into the eyes of Nagato's summoned creatures.]]
** ''Kakashi Gaiden'': [[spoiler:Kakashi got his
had causing one Sharingan eye when his old, regular eye was damaged in a fight, and Obito, to bleed to death after getting mortally wounded and recently unlocking his Sharingan, has Rin surgically replace Kakashi's with one some time. And the location of his while they're both conscious.]]
** Pain
the points? Yes, behind the eyes.
* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'': In Hatori's backstory, when he
tried to kill [[spoiler:Kakashi]] by shooting a nail into his eye. [[spoiler:It didn't work]].
** Also, in a final act of defiance against Madara, [[spoiler:Danzo]] destroyed [[spoiler:Shisui's Sharingan eye]] which he had implanted to prevent Madara

** In chapter 590 in Itachi's memory after Shisui says Danzou stole his right
Akito to marry Kana, Akito's violent disapproval ended with Hatori's left eye he literally takes out his other eye and gives it to Itachi to prevent Danzou from having it.
** [[spoiler:Madara casually rips Kakashi's eye out

The event traumatized Kana to the eye or either point where Hatori decided to suppress her memories of their sockets, and without having to reconnect the optic nerve]], then uses Kamui to go to Obito's dimension in an attempt to get his Rinnegan back.]]
** The last but not least example: in ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'', [[spoiler: BigBad Toneri (who already is eye-less) rips out the eyes of Hinata's little sister Hanabi,
time together so he can use them to activate the Tenseigan after marrying Hinata. Fortunately, [[BigSisterInstinct Hinata]] rips the stolen eyes off ''him'' and gives them back to her sister.]]
** ''Anime/BorutoNarutoTheMovie'' has an unusual example [[spoiler:due to the BigBad having a Rinnegan in each hand in addition to the two Byakugan and forehead Rinnegan on his face, and only the eye in his right hand is stabbed because the heroes needed to get past its ninjutsu absorbing abilities.]]
* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'':
** Played with in Hiei's case. His Jagan Eye transplant, which is a ThirdEye in the middle of his forehead, is described as being the most intense, excruciating pain he's ever felt in his entire life. It seems the process involves a drill like machine ''burrowing'' into the patient's forehead, then implanting the Jagan, which then proceeds to absorb an assload of the patient's energy.
*** Made even worse in the anime when the doctor, a CombatMedic demon named Shigure, claims
that the patient has to she wouldn't be strapped to the bed to prevent them from clawing their own eyes out due to the pain. [[ScreamDiscretionShot The scene cuts to outside Shigure's compound, and the viewers hear a bloodcurdling scream from Hiei.]]
** [[CodeName Doctor]] gets a jar of acid thrown
in his eye in the Chapter Black saga
** Played straight with King Yomi, who during a battle in his past had both of his eyes slashed by swords at close range [[spoiler: at the orders of his then-partner Kurama, who was pissed off at him for being a LeeroyJenkins]]. Ouch! Luckily, he managed to wound his assailant with an accidental stab, thus saving himself from death; he later grows into a massive HandicappedBadass, with a super developed [[DisabilitySuperpower sense of hearing]].
* Violent fight comic ''Manga/{{Shamo}}'' is chock full of cringe-inducing, vision-averting EyeScream moments, including how [[VillainProtagonist Ryo Narushima]] won a qualifying match, as well as how a later seen character made him''self'' blind. The worst part? No weapons assisted in these blinding moments, just fingers and toes involved.
* Rokudo Mukuro from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' jams his finger into his right eye to activate the Fifth Path, the State of Humans. Apparently, he recovers.
** Also, during their fight together, after Mukuro pretends that what was lunging at Tsuna was just an illusion, he quickly reveals that it was actually a stone after smashing it into Tsuna's eye area in order to catch him off guard and attempt to possess his body.
* You want some EyeScream? Watch ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfJZ6nwxD38&feature=related Barefoot Gen, Hiroshima Destroyed.]]'' [[spoiler: Within the first minute, ''a child's eyeballs MELT OUT OF HER HEAD.'']]
* Happens a lot in the ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' film series.
** In the fourth movie, where [[spoiler: Shiki crushes her eyes when her mind cannot handle Eyes of Death Perception. She also tries to do it again another time, but is stopped. She got better.]]
** In the fifth movie "Paradox Spiral": near the beginning, when Enjou Tomoe beats off a delinquent chasing him by shoving a thumb through his eye, and near the end, a scene... which probably shouldn't be described for reasons of {{Squick}}.
** And in the seventh movie, [[spoiler: Mikiya is attacked by Rio with a knife wound to his face, losing his left eye in the process. He got better despite losing his eye; Rio intended to kill him after all.]]
* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''
** Jonathan Joestar gets a thumb in his eye in just the second chapter. It ends with him yelling "My eye is bleeding!" Later Dio gets his, via a rose stem.
** ''Weaponized'' by Dio and latter [[spoiler: Straitzo.]] Vampires can shoot pressurized vitreous humor (eye jelly) as an attack. The attack is named "Space Ripper Stingy Eyes." [[GoodThingYouCanHeal Good thing (sorta) that vampires can heal quickly!]]
** There are several examples in Part 3 as well: the possessed nurse in Kakyoin's introduction arc, Silver Chariot's opening salvo on Devo, and N'Doul's incapacitation of Kakyoin.
** In Part 2, [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Wham/Wam/Waam/Whamuu]] damages his own eyes so he'll take a fight
any more seriously. He can regenerate them, being a super-vampire, [[spoiler:although he never gets a chance to before he's killed]].
** In Part 4, Hazamada attempts to do this to Josuke with his Stand ability. It doesn't work, but it ''would'' have if the wound had been just a few millimeters deeper.
* There is a manga adaptation of ''{{Hamlet}}'' where Ophelia swings her locket at Hamlet, catching him in the eye and leaving it horrifically bloodshot for the rest of the story. It does make for a neat bit of symbolism.

* From the manga ''Dead End'': (paraphrased) "Do I ''look'' okay? I have ''needles'' where my ''eyes'' are supposed to be!"
* The manga ''MPDPsycho'' involves barcoded eyeballs.
** And in chapter 81 or something like that, some random dude tears out one of his eyes, and then afterwards ''sits there smoking a cigarette with blood streaming down his face''.
* In ''Manga/BusouRenkin'', Tokiko tries twice to gouge out her enemy's eyes with her fingers. As Watsuki says in the liner notes, "Tokiko loves to go for the eyes."
** She even does it to Kazuki in the last chapter, when he's looking at her funny.
* In ''Manga/ChronoCrusade'', Jenai had his eyes sliced out during a battle with Pandaemonium. Later in the series he takes off the visor he wears over his blind eyes and reveals the badly stitched-up eye sockets, explaining how the Greeks used to put coins in the eyes of the dead to help pay for their fare on the River Styx...and then proceeds to pull out bloody coins he keeps in his eye sockets, offering to pay the heroine's way to the afterlife. It's a very, ''very'' creepy scene that establishes him firmly as a villain, although his blindness is also portrayed sympathetically in a later scene.
* In the ''Anime/CodeGeass'' spin-off Manga ''Suzaku of the Counterattack'', Schneizel [[spoiler: prevents Lelouch from using his Geass on him by ''puncturing his left eye''.]]
* In ''Manga/ProjectARMS'', Kei's ARMS are for her eyes. This means that when she was a child, she went through a horrible accident that involved having her eyes put out, made slightly less traumatic probably because the ARMS completely mimicked her old set of eyes (in the manga her eyes were stabbed out by a psychotic murderer and in the anime they were burned out while she and some kids tried to escape a burning building).
* [[{{Yandere}} Hitagi Senjougahara]] from ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'' nearly stabs Koyomi Araragi in the eye with a mechanical pencil after he so much as talks about another female using her first name without an honorific.
--> Araragi-kun, your wounds heal very quickly, don't they? So I bet it'd be okay if I just took out an eyeball.
** She also jabbed him in the eyes with her fingers once for referring to her as Senjougahara-chan rather than Senjougahara-sama like she wanted.
* Tears of blood are one of the first signs that you are a victim of [[ThePlague the virus]] in ''Manga/{{Emerging}}''. It quickly progresses into [[HighPressureBlood blood gushing]] from your eye sockets, as well as your other bodily orifices. To top it off, just before your death your eyes start ''melting.''
* In ''Manga/DogsBulletsAndCarnage'', one of Heine's flashbacks shows [[spoiler:Lily reaching up to caress Giovanni's face... and then gouging both his eyes out with her thumbs]].
** Badou also had an eye cut out years before the current storyline.
* Xerxes Break in ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' has one eye. The other one was ripped out by the Will of The Abyss and put in someone else's head. In addition to witnessing this event with no detail spared, he is sometimes seen scratching at his empty eye socket in moments of extreme mental or physical stress, to the point of drawing lots of blood.
** Vincent has a scissors and eyeballs motif going there too.
*** Usually Vincent's just stabbing stuffed animals' eyes out (along with necks, stomachs, etc.). There was that one time, however, that he decided to screw with Alice and ''jab his scissors into her pet cat's eyes''. This eventually leads to the first example; [[{{Squick}} Break's eye was meant for her cat]].
* Alluded to in ''Manga/{{Loveless}}'' when Seimei plucks out not one, but ''both'' of Ritsu's eyes.
** It's made worse when we learn that he did it to write 'RITSUKA I'M BACK' on the wall...with the blood from the eyeballs.
* In chapter 96 of ''Manga/{{Psyren}}'' it's revealed why Grana has the EyepatchOfPower. [[spoiler: Miroku gouged it out in their fight as his finishing move]].
* Saiga Tatsumi of ''Anime/SpeedGrapher'' has a love for photography which develops into a sexual fetishism. While investigating a secret club where rich and influent people meet to fulfill their most perverted desires, he received a kiss from Kagura and developed the ability to explode whoever and whatever he photographs - Death by Photo. When using his powers his camera gains a black aura, while his right eye (it can be either, but he aims with his right) turns blood shot and the iris bright green while large veins protrude around it. Also, during his final battle with Suitengu, [[spoiler:he is ultimately unable to defeat Suitengu before going blind from overusing his power.]]
* In ''Anime/{{Texhnolyze}}'', Ichise gets poked in the eye in the first episode by a women who hired him for sexual services, causing him to defend himself using his fists.[[spoiler:Unfortunately for him, that woman belongs to a major criminal organisation, which retaliates by cutting off two of his limbs.]]
** Shape-ified [[spoiler: Hal]] also suffers one of these when he [[spoiler: betrays Shinji]]. You don't see the actual injury, but you hear it.
* In ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'', when Ashitaka's village is threatened by a boar-demon covered in big wriggly tentacles, he at first tries to reason with it. When said demon [[BigBrotherInstinct starts charging toward his little sister]], he puts an arrow directly into the monster's eye, shown in close-up. The inhuman scream it lets out when the arrow makes contact accurately sums up the feelings of the audience.
* In ''Manga/TokyoTribe 2'', this happens to Renkon Chef in episode 6 when [[spoiler: Jadakings '''bites his eye off and spits it out.''']]
* Eye trauma is a mainstay in the manga by Creator/SuehiroMaruo: people are blinded (sometimes self inflicted, always bloodily) with anything from needles to katana; eyeballs are dug out of their sockets with spoon and fork. On a more gentle side, licking of eyeballs during sexual acts is his trademark.

* The manga ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'', depicts Erika and Walker torturing a man by imitating a scene from ''Manga/BlackButler'', by branding his eye. It's a very disturbing reveal of just ''how devoted'' they are to their anime and manga - although they're also quick to note that if it wasn't anime and manga, it would be something else that they would take their inspiration from. In the anime, it's PlayedForLaughs, by just seeing comical struggling from outside the van, just barely skimming over how twisted these kids are.

* ''Manga/VinlandSaga'': As part of the [[http://mangafox.me/manga/vinland_saga/v12/c092/3.html carnage]] in chapter 92, a guy is shown with his eyes cut out; later on, another character gets [[http://mangafox.me/manga/vinland_saga/v12/c092/25.html stabbed]] in the eye, complete with fluid gushing out and his opponent ''digging his knuckle into the socket''.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', one unlucky scout lost his eyes (among other injuries) when his team was overwhelmed by Titans summoned by the Female Titan. As a Titan prepares to devour him, he spends his last moments begging someone to warn the other scouts of the Female Titan, unable to see that he is the last survivor of his team (for a few seconds anyway).
** Gouging a Titan's eyes out is a fairly viable tactic, as they recoil in pain and are blind until they regenerate them. This presents humans with a window of opportunity to go for the neck and put the abomination down for good.
* In the first episode of ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'' Van shoots a dragon in the eye with a crossbow.
* In the "Conclusion: God's War" manga arc of Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}, [[spoiler: Francoise aka 003]] get subjected to this ''and'' [[AnArmAndALeg loses an arm]].

* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', Usui of the Jupon Gatana was blinded in his back-story when Shishio slashed him across the eyes during a fight; this, in turn, led to Usui developing his [[DisabilitySuperpower extremely refined sense of hearing]] and becoming a HandicappedBadass. Also, in a filler arc, Shura the pirate punched her first mate in the eye when he tried to seduce her and wouldn't take no for an answer; the first mate subsequently wore an eye-patch and led most of the crew to revolt against Shura. [[spoiler:In ''Shin Kyoto Hen'', Chou loses an eye when Kenshin stabs him there with his sword-scabbard]].

* The villain of HunterXHunter: [[NonSerialMovie Phantom Rogue]] steals human eyes for his collection of dolls. He does this through nen, so there's no blood, and only dolls or (briefly) corpses are shown with empty sockets, but the way his power creeps into a victim's eyes is clearly meant to evoke this. Plus, the idea that one [[spoiler:(later two)]] of the main characters spends the entire movie wandering around with their eyes plucked out is very unsettling.
* ''CorpseParty: Tortured Souls'': [[DeathByAdaptation Of the two characters who aren't supposed to die]], one has a knife stabbed at an eye and bleeds out heavily, while another has a whole eyeball ripped out.

* In ''Literature/{{Gate}}'', the Flame Dragon's hide is nigh-invulnerable, but its eyes are not. Tuka's father takes out the left one with an arrow. Later, the JSDF targets the right one with their guns, but it manages to block the bullets with its hands.

** In the sequel, Kaneki stabbing Kanae in the eye with a pipe.
** Also from the sequel, Eto sewing Kanae's eyes open.

** After being captured and imprisoned in Cochlea, the amnesiac Ghoul #240 is seen wearing bandages over his eyes. This is because he repeatedly clawed his own eyes out, to the extent the wounds kept getting infected.

* The Ryugu Shelter arc eponymous girls from ''Manga/SevenSeeds'' includes ''Manga/GunslingerGirl'' are extremely resilient to physical attacks, to the point that they can't be shot down by just a few bullets. Their only true weak point is their eyes, which gets addressed in a rather gruesome way in Elsa's story, [[spoiler: a disease carried when she gets fed up with her handler Lauro's ''extreme'' neglection, shoots him dead, and then commits suicide by shooting herself in an eye]].
** A fact
that involves parasitoids the professional assassin Pinocchio also seems to understand, as demonstrated when he attempts to finish his fight with Triela by shoving a key through her right eye. [[spoiler:More incredibly, Triela counters (and kills) him by stabbing her ''fingers'' through his throat.]]
** And again invoked when [[spoiler:right before dying, Jose kills Henrietta via shooting her in the eye.]]
* There is a manga adaptation of ''{{Hamlet}}'' where Ophelia swings her locket at Hamlet, catching him in the eye and leaving it horrifically bloodshot for the rest of the story. It does make for a neat bit of symbolism.
* In ''Manga/HellTeacherNube'', the local {{Ojou}} is possessed by an {{obake}}
that feast off takes the host's form of a [[EyesDoNotBelongThere monstrous eye erupting from her hand]]. She tries to remove it by using this trope and stabbing it out. Unfortunately, not only does it keep growing back, the monster takes over her body for as long as possible.

** The scene with Jan Valentine in ''Ultimate Hellsing'' OVA 2. During his infamous "I highly recommend ''pissing'' yourselves, followed by a course of praying to your impotent ''God!''" spiel, he places his thumb atop the eye of the decapitated head he's playing with and presses down hard causing the eyeball to burst and blood to shoot out.
** It actually happens at least once per OVA to the point that it's become a ''RunningGag''. Whenever Alucard shoots his opponents in the head or impales them, we're treated to a nice shot of their eyeballs flying out of the sockets.
* In the first chapter of ''Manga/HighSchoolOfTheDead'' Takashi saves his friend who was being attacked by one of them by slamming the thing on the top of the head so hard with his baseball bat that one of its eyes get knocked out of its head and falls to the ground.
* In ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' there's a scene where Rena beats Rina to death with a lead pipe. We don't see the actual beating but after Rina dies the camera pans over her mutilated face to reveal that one of her eyeballs was smashed. Another scene had Rika spray Shion in the eyes with pepper spray.
** Used in the Matsuribayashi-hen manga when a young orphan girl ([[spoiler: Miyo Takano's best friend Erika]]) gets her eye punctured by a chicken while being tortured in the OrphanageOfFear.
** Also, it's revealed that the incident that caused [[spoiler: Keiichi and his family to move into Hinamizawa]] was [[spoiler: him snapping after all the [[StockShoujoBullyingTactics school bullying]] he went through, starting to shoot passer-bies with a model gun, and then shooting a little girl in the eye.]]

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul''
''Manga/InuYasha'' has more than one invocatuion of this trope:
** Yamori stabbing Kaneki Kaede was subjected to this when she was a little girl, and this had already happened before her sister Kikyou's death. The anime and the manga difer on how this happened: in the eye first [[spoiler: the culprit is Kikyo's old rival Tsubaki]], while in the latter [[spoiler: it's implied Inuyasha's attack was responsible.]] Now that she's a CoolOldLady, she covers her empty socket with an EyepatchOfPower.
** Inuyasha has
a needle portal that leads to make his father's grave in his pupil, which Sesshomaru decides to pull out in order to use it. In the anime, Sesshoumaru grabs Inuyasha in a NeckLift and forcibly pours his magic into a screaming Inu's eye to dig out the black pearl sealing it. In the manga, on the other hand, Sesshomaru does it the good old-fashioned way by ''stabbing him more vulnerable to torture.

** [[spoiler:Kaneki gets first his Fast Forward to [[spoiler:Kanna's suicide. This is a SubvertedTrope because even though a glass shard touched Kagome's eye it did little to no permanent damage to the eye and [[DeathEqualsRedemption Kanna would give Kagome advice on Naraku's weakness for ordering her death]]]].
** In the arc dealing with Tsubaki the Dark {{Miko}}, there is more than one eye-related injury. When Kagome deflects an attack from Tsubaki's snake familiar with her bow, it's absorbed into a screaming Tsubaki's
left eye, and then his right, taken out by Investigator Kishou Arima. Kaneki promptly has a [[FreakOut meltdown]] after soon it's shown that Kikyou once did ''exactly'' the first blow and it only gets worse as the same to her in their fight progressed. for the right to hold the Shikon Jewel. And why in the anime, not only does Tsubaki merge with a powerful unsealed demon via having it enter her body through her eye, but when Naraku gets fed up and sends one of his insects to collect Tsubaki's Shikon shards, it's done via ''having said insect pass through her head, collect the shard, and then leave through Tsubaki's eye''. OUCH.

In chapter 12, Houjou attempts to [[spoiler: burn out Kaneki's left eye; he stabs Kaneki ''from behind, through his brain''.Toru's eye with a cigarette because they are apparently useless.]] Luckily, Asahi [[BigDamnHeroes is able to intervene in time.]]

** After being captured There are several examples in Part 3 as well: the possessed nurse in Kakyoin's introduction arc, Silver Chariot's opening salvo on Devo, and imprisoned in Cochlea, the amnesiac Ghoul #240 is seen wearing bandages over his eyes. This is because he repeatedly clawed N'Doul's incapacitation of Kakyoin.

a card game. This is accomplished by way of a small machine with a tiny drill that attaches over the organ in question -- every time he loses, the drill point will move a little bit closer... This would be bad enough, but the animation does us the questionable favor of explaining this by ''graphically animating, '''in cross-section''', how the drill would move in and destroy his eye!'' Perhaps unsurprisingly, Kaiji chooses to bet his ear instead. (Then we're treated to repeated graphic demonstrations of how it would destroy his ''ear'', just in case we weren't traumatized enough yet.)
* Happens a lot in the ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' film series.
** In chapter 74 of re the fourth movie, where [[spoiler: Arima thrusts IXA at Kaneki's eyes, and asks if this Shiki crushes her eyes when her mind cannot handle Eyes of Death Perception. She also tries to do it again another time, but is what he wants.stopped. She got better.]]
* Episode 11 ** In the fifth movie "Paradox Spiral": near the beginning, when Enjou Tomoe beats off a delinquent chasing him by shoving a thumb through his eye, and near the end, a scene... which probably shouldn't be described for reasons of ''Anime/{{Charlotte}}'' features {{Squick}}.
** And in the seventh movie,
[[spoiler: Yuu getting Mikiya is attacked by Rio with a knife wound to his face, losing his left eye in the process. He got better despite losing his eye; Rio intended to kill him after all.]]
* In the anime series ''Anime/{{Karas}}'', the main character gets his sword broken, and small shards of it goes into his eyes. And it all happens in a zoomed-in slow-motion shot.
* ''Manga/{{Karneval}}'': One chapter had a Varuga that went around collecting people's eyes (i.e. ripping them out of people's heads). He tries to do the same to Nai, but the latter is saved by a sheep.
* Rokudo Mukuro from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' jams his finger into
his right eye slashed]] to activate the Fifth Path, the State of Humans. Apparently, he recovers.
** Also, during their fight together, after Mukuro pretends that what was lunging at Tsuna was just an illusion, he quickly reveals that it was actually a stone after smashing it into Tsuna's eye area in order to catch him off guard and attempt to possess his body.
* In ''Anime/KillLaKill'', when Uzu Sanageyama realizes that he relied too much on his sight fighting Ryuko, he has his eyelids ''sewn shut'' to correct this "mistake". [[spoiler: He takes the stitches off almost at the end of the series.]]
** Before his death, Isshin Matoi manages to take [[spoiler:Nui Harime]]'s eye out.
* In the AlternateUniverse manga ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters: G'', [[spoiler: Kyo Kusanagi]] is subjected to this
by [[spoiler: a {{More than Mind Control}}led Benimaru Nikaido, who wounds his eyes ''with his bare fingers'']] in the third volume. [[spoiler: From then on, Kyo has to keep his EyesAlwaysShut and [[HandicappedBadass fight like that until the end of the manga]].]]
* ''Manga/KongohBancho'': [[spoiler:Iai Bancho]] cuts his eyes so he won't have to see his [[spoiler:immodestly-dressed female]] opponents. It makes about as much sense in-context as it sounds, but [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/kongou_banchou/c035/7.html judge for yourself]].
* In an early chapter of ''Manga/TheKurosagiCorpseDeliveryService'', the gang runs afoul of a crooked insurance agent who kills people with [[MillionToOneChance probability]], and who suffers a KarmicDeath from getting stabbed in the eye with a screw that fell off a passing airplane. A story arc in Volume 4 involves a parasite that infects certain species of snail mutating to infect humans as well, causing the victim's eyes to swell grotesquely and bulge out of their eye sockets. A later villain in Volume 13 ends up annoying a fertility goddess, who causes a tree to grow from inside his body and branches to sprout out of his head through his eye holes.
* During one battle in ''Anime/LegendOfGalacticHeroes'', several scenes depicting the brutality of war are shown. In one case, a man is killed by an explosion in his ship, and we are treated to a visual of his eyes boiling and subsequently bursting. Pleasant stuff.
** In episode 63, Olivier Poplin hurls a hypodermic syringe straight into the eye of a Terraist doctor while he and his companions are trapped on Earth.
* One of the suggested methods for dealing with an intruder in ''Manga/LitchiHikariClub'' was to put out his eyes. As this was [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic highly symbolic]], it was approved. [[spoiler: Much later the reader discovers that Litchi's eyes were donated from Niko and Dafu, explaining the scar and the eyepatch respectively.]]
* Alluded to in ''Manga/{{Loveless}}'' when Seimei plucks out not one, but ''both'' of Ritsu's eyes.
** It's made worse when we learn that he did it to write 'RITSUKA I'M BACK' on the wall...with the blood from the eyeballs.
* [[spoiler:Vice's little sister]] in ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' gets a [[StunGuns magical bullet]] in the eye, though it eventually gets better. LittleMissBadass Cinque wasn't quite as lucky. There's a reason she wears an [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch]], and we get to see the incident when she lost her eye via flashback.
* The manga ''Manga/MPDPsycho'' involves barcoded eyeballs.
** And in chapter 81 or something like that, some random dude tears out one of his eyes, and then afterwards ''sits there smoking a cigarette with blood streaming down his face''.
* When confronted by Mai, Natsuki and Midori in a late ''Anime/MaiHime'' episode [[spoiler: after Yukariko's WoundedGazelleGambit]], local DarkMagicalGirl Nao Yuuki catches a stinger right into her left eye from her own CHILD, Julia. After pulling out the stinger, she notices her hand covered in blood, and gets ''extremely'' [[FreakOut pissed off]].
* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': In the Mazinger vs Great General of Darkness feature, [[TheHero Kouji]] shot Mazinger's drilling missiles right in the eye of a [[{{Robeast}} Mykene Warrior Beast]]. The tiny missiles drilled through its eye and exploded inside its brain, and the monster screamed in pain as it happened. Ouch. And in another episode, Sayaka blew up with her HumongousMecha TorpedoTits the only weak points of the Mechanical Beast Gumbina M5… its eyes. Double ouch.
* ''Manga/MedakaBox'': Kumagawa calmly [[spoiler: blinds Zenkichi with two fingers]]. Then he heals the eyes....[[spoiler: but not the eyesight]].
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' has a thing for blasting out the protagonists' right eyes. It happened to [[spoiler:Lockon and Allelujah]]. Extra points to the latter for removing the eye that represented that character's [[spoiler:SuperpoweredEvilSide]], [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic symbolic]] of that side's loss.
** It is later revealed [[spoiler: in episode 7 of season 2 that Allelujah didn't lost his right eye, he was actually hit in the forehead and the reason he covered his right eye was because of the blood flowing. [[NotQuiteDead His Alter ego is just "sleeping"]].]]
* Though but
one of the terrorists.
many [[BodyHorror gruesome, horrifying things]] that the mushi from ''Manga/{{Mushishi}}'' can do to your body, but the author seems to have a special love of strange things living in, feeding off, or bursting out of peoples' eyes. (Thematically, this may be linked to the fact that mushi are InvisibleToNormals.) Just be glad that they don't exist. [[ParanoiaFuel Maybe]].
** Also just barely subverted in episode 7, The author admits that eye trauma freaks her out, hence the ''giant blob of stuff'' oozing out of a little girl's eyes, a blind singer's eyes [[spoiler: crawling away!]] and [[spoiler: Ginko's eye being eaten by a powerful mushi which will eventually claim the rest of him]].
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' Kishimoto is a BIG fan of the trope, as well as eye transplants. To start, we have the part
where [[spoiler: Yuu ''considers'' doing Itachi uses the Tsukoyomi to simulate popping Sasuke's eye out of its socket. He freaking PLUCKED IT OUT.]]
** In the anime, it's not pretty either. You see [[spoiler: Sasuke's eye slowly bulge out of its socket as Itachi removes it.]] Thank GOD for the GoryDiscretionShot. That said, we get the same thing with Izuna and Madara, only Sasuke gets splattered with Izuna's blood. Nice.
** [[spoiler:[[BigBad Madara Uchiha]]]] actually '''stabs out''' [[spoiler: his own brother]]'s eyes in order to [[spoiler: transplant them into his own eye sockets to counteract the effects of his DeadlyUpgrade]].
** In chapter 551

** ''Kakashi Gaiden'': [[spoiler:Kakashi got his one Sharingan eye when his old, regular eye was damaged in a fight, and Obito, after getting mortally wounded and recently unlocking his Sharingan, has Rin surgically replace Kakashi's with one of his while they're both conscious.]]
** Pain tried to kill [[spoiler:Kakashi]] by shooting a nail into his eye. [[spoiler:It didn't work]].
** Also, in a final act of defiance against Madara, [[spoiler:Danzo]] destroyed [[spoiler:Shisui's Sharingan eye]] which he had implanted to prevent Madara from using it. This was thankfully offscreen.
** In chapter 590 in Itachi's memory after Shisui says Danzou stole his right eye he literally takes out his other eye and gives it to Itachi to prevent Danzou from having it.
** [[spoiler:Madara casually rips Kakashi's eye out ''while running past him'' and puts it in himself, [[ArtisticLicenseBiology without damaging the eye or either of their sockets, and without having to reconnect the optic nerve]], then uses Kamui to go to Obito's dimension in an attempt to get his Rinnegan back.]]
** The last but not least example: in ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'', [[spoiler: BigBad Toneri (who already is eye-less) rips out the eyes of Hinata's little sister Hanabi, so he can use them to activate the Tenseigan after marrying Hinata. Fortunately, [[BigSisterInstinct Hinata]] rips the stolen eyes off ''him'' and gives them back to her sister.]]
** ''Anime/BorutoNarutoTheMovie'' has an unusual example [[spoiler:due to the BigBad having a Rinnegan in each hand in addition to the two Byakugan and forehead Rinnegan on his face, and only the eye in his right hand is stabbed because the heroes needed to get past its ninjutsu absorbing abilities.]]
* ''Anime/NinjaScroll'': This is the result when Jubei determines that [[MadeOfIron Tessai]] is not quite “hard as rock all over.”
* The first chapter of ''Manga/OnePiece''. As the Redhairs are attacked by a flock of bandits, Shanks's first mate Benn Beckman calmly [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome puts a cigarette out in the eye of a charging pirate,]] before proceeding to clobber the rest of them on his own.



* In Literature/{{Another}}, Mei Misaki lost an eye as a little girl due to illness so she has a fake one behind an EyepatchOfPower. In the manga, however, she gets stabbed through her empty eye by [[spoiler: Izumi Akazawa]]
* ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'': [[spoiler:Shiro/Yanagisawa got his left eye pierced with a piece of glass thrown out by the newly-created Koro-sensei when he went on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against him and the scientists that made him.]]

to:

* Xerxes Break in ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' has one eye. The other one was ripped out by the Will of The Abyss and put in someone else's head. In addition to witnessing this event with no detail spared, he is sometimes seen scratching at his empty eye socket in moments of extreme mental or physical stress, to the point of drawing lots of blood.
** Vincent has a scissors and eyeballs motif going there too. Usually Vincent's just stabbing stuffed animals' eyes out (along with necks, stomachs, etc.). There was that one time, however, that he decided to screw with Alice and ''jab his scissors into her pet cat's eyes''. This eventually leads to the first example; [[{{Squick}} Break's eye was meant for her cat]].
* ''Anime/PerfectBlue'': The corpses of each murder victim are shown to have their eyes gouged out. One man is killed from being stabbed in the eye and ''his crotch'' followed by repeated stabbing all over his body.
* In Literature/{{Another}}, Mei Misaki lost an ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'', what prompted [[spoiler:Tachibana's]] jump from KnightTemplar to TheAtoner was [[spoiler:him hitting his best friend Chitose in the eye as and almost making him completely lose sight in it.]] We also have Ryoma getting hit in the eye with the handle of his own broken racket, [[spoiler:and later Fuji playing almost ''blind'' against Kirihara]].
* In ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'', when Ashitaka's village is threatened by
a boar-demon covered in big wriggly tentacles, he at first tries to reason with it. When said demon [[BigBrotherInstinct starts charging toward his little girl due to illness so sister]], he puts an arrow directly into the monster's eye, shown in close-up. The inhuman scream it lets out when the arrow makes contact accurately sums up the feelings of the audience.
* In ''Manga/ProjectARMS'', Kei's ARMS are for her eyes. This means that when
she was a child, she went through a horrible accident that involved having her eyes put out, made slightly less traumatic probably because the ARMS completely mimicked her old set of eyes (in the manga her eyes were stabbed out by a psychotic murderer and in the anime they were burned out while she and some kids tried to escape a burning building).
* In chapter 96 of ''Manga/{{Psyren}}'' it's revealed why Grana
has a fake one behind an the EyepatchOfPower. [[spoiler: Miroku gouged it out in their fight as his finishing move]].
* In ''Anime/RomeoXJuliet'', [[spoiler: [[BigBrotherMentor Cu]][[TheBigGuy rio]] fell victim to this while defending a pre-teen "Odin" (Juliet [[{{Bifauxnen}} in disguise]]) from an abusive guard and completely lost use of his left eye. [[ItsAllMyFault The guilt]] [[FailureKnight Juliet]] felt upon the incident motivates her to become [[VigilanteMan The Red Whirlwind]].]]
* In ''Manga/RoseOfVersailles'', [[spoiler: André Grandier]] loses an eye ''very'' messily ([[spoiler: via having said ''slashed with a sword's pointy tip'']]) midway the story while protecting Oscar. [[ActionGirl She]] [[ItsPersonal does]] ''[[UnstoppableRage not]]'' [[{{Revenge}} take that]] kindly and almost ''kills'' the culprit, a local WellIntentionedExtremist, but backs off at the last moment [[IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim to not fall as low as the guy]].

* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', Usui of the Jupon Gatana was blinded in his back-story when Shishio slashed him across the eyes during a fight; this, in turn, led to Usui developing his [[DisabilitySuperpower extremely refined sense of hearing]] and becoming a HandicappedBadass. Also, in a filler arc, Shura the pirate punched her first mate in the eye when he tried to seduce her and wouldn't take no for an answer; the first mate subsequently wore an eye-patch and led most of the crew to revolt against Shura. [[spoiler:In ''Shin Kyoto Hen'', Chou loses an eye when Kenshin stabs him there with his sword-scabbard]].
* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'':
** Something similar to the ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}''example above happens [[spoiler: when Cygnus Hyoga allows/begs Kraken Isaac to hit his eye... since Isaac lost an eye ''because'' of him, after getting impaled through it [[KillItWithIce with a stalactite]] while saving Hyoga's life]].
** One of [[spoiler: Dragon Shiryu]]'s most famous actions is him [[spoiler: plucking his own eyes out to defeat an enemy who has a shield that [[TakenForGranite turns the target into stone with a single glance]], [[MortonsFork after neither closed eyes nor blindfolds work as counter-measures.]] In the TV series he gets better, though in the {{filler}} Asgard saga he temporarily loses his sight again after getting his eyes slashed in his fight with Fenrir; in the manga and the ''Hades Saga'' series he doesn't, and stays blind for the rest of his life.]]
** During the anime's rendition of the Galactic Tournament, right before his death Black Cygnus took off the swan ornament from his helmet and crushed it to send information to his boss (a still not {{Heel Face Turn}}ed Ikki).
In the manga, however, she gets stabbed through her empty he plucked one of his eyes instead.
* Cho Hakkai from ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'' plucked out his own
eye by (almost both of them) and offered it to the relative of a youkai whose eyes he had gouged out during the mass murder he committed.
** We're not sure about the extent of the damage yet, but in the last chapter of ''Saiyuki Reload'', [[spoiler:Ukoku apparently had his eyes shot out]].
* In chapter 6 of ''SakuraGari'' after Dr. Katsuragi
[[spoiler: Izumi Akazawa]]
* ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'': [[spoiler:Shiro/Yanagisawa got
rapes and tortures Masataka]] [[FinGore he sticks Masataka's hand into a pot of boiling tea]], yelling at him to "get away from Souma!" [[TheDogBitesBack In retaliation, Masataka throws the pot into Katsuragi's eyes]]; as the other covers his burned face, Masataka manages to escape to the Saiki household. The next time we se Katsuragi, [[TwoFaced half his face is covered in bandages]], including his left eye pierced eye.
* In the climax of the ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' anime (first season), [[BigBad Nobunaga]] performs a NeckLift on [[HandicappedBadass Masamune]] using only his palm under Masamune's neck and threatens to jam his thumb into Masamune's remaining eye. Honda Tadakatsu interferes before he can go through
with a piece it, however.
* Violent fight comic ''Manga/{{Shamo}}'' is chock full
of glass thrown cringe-inducing, vision-averting EyeScream moments, including how [[VillainProtagonist Ryo Narushima]] won a qualifying match, as well as how a later seen character made him''self'' blind. The worst part? No weapons assisted in these blinding moments, just fingers and toes involved.
* In the ''Manga/{{Shigurui}}'' manga, Irako Seigen gets slashed across the eyes (no spoiler because that's how he was shown in the first chapter). At first you just see a line across the bridge of his nose; then it starts to bleed, with clear fluid coming
out of the cuts in his eyes. Then it gets really freaky.
* In ''VisualNovel/{{Shuffle}}'', as a child, Kaede is seen standing at the top of a flight of stairs and coldly orders Rin to pick up some writing utensils she had dropped at the bottom. Rin busies himself with the task so he doesn't notice when Kaede secretly takes out a boxcutter, stretches her arm out and (somehow) drops it directly above Rin. Rin looks up at the moment when the knife comes careening down and it slices his right eye. He gets better.
* ''Manga/SlamDunk'':
** Subverted. Sakuragi elbows Hanagata in the side of his head and breaks his glasses, but doesn't damage his eyes. As much, Hanagata gets a cut on his forehead.
** Played straighter later, when [[spoiler: Minami]] hits [[spoiler: Rukawa]] in the head and causes him to play half-blind.
* In ''Manga/SoutenKouro'' We have this nice scene of Xiahou Dun losing his eye. He pulled the arrow along with his eyeball and then ATE HIS OWN EYE! Two for the price of one!
** Made scarier
by the newly-created Koro-sensei fact that Xiahou Dun allegedly did that ''when he lost his eye in RealLife''. Hope it's just a legend.
* Saiga Tatsumi of ''Anime/SpeedGrapher'' has a love for photography which develops into a sexual fetishism. While investigating a secret club where rich and influent people meet to fulfill their most perverted desires, he received a kiss from Kagura and developed the ability to explode whoever and whatever he photographs - Death by Photo. When using his powers his camera gains a black aura, while his right eye (it can be either, but he aims with his right) turns blood shot and the iris bright green while large veins protrude around it. Also, during his final battle with Suitengu, [[spoiler:he is ultimately unable to defeat Suitengu before going blind from overusing his power.]]
* In ''Anime/{{Texhnolyze}}'', Ichise gets poked in the eye in the first episode by a women who hired him for sexual services, causing him to defend himself using his fists.[[spoiler:Unfortunately for him, that woman belongs to a major criminal organisation, which retaliates by cutting off two of his limbs.]]
** Shape-ified [[spoiler: Hal]] also suffers one of these
when he went [[spoiler: betrays Shinji]]. You don't see the actual injury, but you hear it.
* Kau in ''VisualNovel/TogainuNoChi''. Arbitro's modifications of him include [[BodyHorror removing his eyeballs and voicebox]].
* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul''
** Yamori stabbing Kaneki in the eye with a needle to make him more vulnerable to torture.
** Furuta using his comrade as a meat shield and jabbing Matsumae's eyes out with his fingers.
** [[spoiler:Kaneki gets first his left eye, and then his right, taken out by Investigator Kishou Arima. Kaneki promptly has a [[FreakOut meltdown]] after the first blow and it only gets worse as the fight progressed. And why is it especially vicious? Because Arima doesn't just stab out Kaneki's left eye; he stabs Kaneki ''from behind, through his brain''.]]
** In the sequel, Kaneki stabbing Kanae in the eye with a pipe.
** Also from the sequel, Eto sewing Kanae's eyes open.
** After Takizawa gets through with Sasaki, his upper face is a bloody mess. It's probably better that there's so much blood that it isn't clear what exactly was done to him.
** After being captured and imprisoned in Cochlea, the amnesiac Ghoul #240 is seen wearing bandages over his eyes. This is because he repeatedly clawed his own eyes out, to the extent the wounds kept getting infected.
** Furuta attempts to gouge out Sasaki's/Kaneki's eyes with his thumbs in chapter 70.
** In chapter 74 of re [[spoiler: Arima thrusts IXA at Kaneki's eyes, and asks if this is what he wants.]]
* In ''Manga/TokyoTribe 2'', this happens to Renkon Chef in episode 6 when [[spoiler: Jadakings '''bites his eye off and spits it out.''']]
* In episode 17 of the ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' anime Jessica blames her aunt Eva for the death of Krauss and Natsuhi, her parents. Eva gets defensive and accuses Jessica and Battler of killing her son George. Jessica gets pissed off at Eva's accusation and yells "I'll kill you! I'll kill you!" at her. Eva gets scared and fires a shot from her rifle and the fire from the discharge injures Jessica's eyes.
** In the 4rth arc, Eva [[spoiler: (or better said, Eva-Beatrice in her form)]] has a shot gun and threatens [[spoiler: Ange]] with it. Then said gun ''blows up'' and ''destroys'' Eva's upper face, and she screams and rolls
on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge the floor in utter pain as she covers her destroyed eyes and bleeds all over. [[spoiler: Ange]] has to MercyKill her.
* In the first volume of the yaoi manga ''Manga/UnderGrandHotel'' Sen defends himself
against a rapist by poking the guy's eye out with a cross necklace he won in a checker game from Swordfish.
* In ''Manga/UntilDeathDoUsPart'', Mamoru was blinded when [[spoiler:the person next to
him was shot and ''exploded''.]] He gets [[GogglesDoSomethingUnusual sunglasses]] that allow him to more-or-less see, though.
* In ''LightNovel/VampireHunterD'' when D breaks into Count Magnus Lee's hideout he tosses a knife into his eye, Magnus casually takes out the knife, pulls his eye out of his socket, and places it back in after healing it.
* ''Manga/VinlandSaga'': As part of the [[http://mangafox.me/manga/vinland_saga/v12/c092/3.html carnage]] in chapter 92, a guy is shown with his eyes cut out; later on, another character gets [[http://mangafox.me/manga/vinland_saga/v12/c092/25.html stabbed]] in the eye, complete with fluid gushing out and his opponent ''digging his knuckle into the socket''.
* In the first episode of ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'' Van shoots a dragon in the eye with a crossbow.
* Elena [[spoiler:(AKA Lachrymarum, the Mother of Tears)]] from ''Manga/TheVoynichHotel'' is missing her right eye. It got [[spoiler:shot out by an arrow by Spanish colonisers.]]
** Later, [[spoiler: Elena's LoveInterest [[{{Yakuza}} Taizou]] got subjected to ColdBloodedTorture that included, [[TheToothHurts among]] [[FinGore other]] [[EarAche things]], tearing off one of his eyes. When Elena found out, [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend she was most... upset]] [[LudicrousGibs towards his attackers]]; when done with them she did her best to reattach Taizou's lost body parts, but couldn't implant his eye back so he uses an eyepatch afterwards.]]
** At the end of the series, [[spoiler: Mamiya's younger sister is seen using her knives to stab a yakuza through his eyes.]]
* [[spoiler: Haguro]] punches [[spoiler: his girlfriend Ryuuko]] in the left eye in ''Manga/WolfGuyWolfenCrest'' during a verbal spat concerning (who else?) Inugami. [[spoiler: She's later seen using an EyepatchOfPower.]]
* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has a somewhat famous example in Maximillion Pegasus (Pegasus J. Crawford, in Japan). Throughout most of the Duelist Kingdom arc, Pegasus possesses the Millennium Eye, which takes the place of his own left eye. He wasn't born with it... the 4Kids dub removes the blood, but keeps a silhouetted introduction process, right along with Pegasus's agonized screams. At the end of Duelist Kingdom, Bakura rips the Millenium Eye out of Pegasus's head. In the manga, he gives him one of Pegasus's own replica Millenium eyes; not that it does him much good, [[spoiler:Bakura having killed Pegasus in the process and all]]. TheMovie later had Pegasus show Kaiba what can only be assumed to be an empty socket or the dummy eye, and we get to see Kaiba squirm in response.
** Horribly and hilariously {{Lampshaded}} in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'':
--->* pop* \\
'''Pegasus:''' AGH! That's the WRONG EYEBALL, you fool!\\
'''Bakura:''' Oh, sorry.\\
* pop* \\
'''Pegasus:''' Much better.
*** Referenced yet again in the re-cap episode:
---> '''Bakura:''' I spy, with my little eye, something that begins with "I". Guess what? It's your eye!
--->'''Pegasus:''' But "eye" doesn't start with--
--->*pop!*
** And in ''Manga/YuGiOhR'', Pegasus' [[SempaiKohai protege]] Yako gets his own version. There's no apparent physical trauma, but immediately after [[StartOfDarkness Yako finds evidence of what happened to Pegasus]], his iris seemingly melts and runs down his face. Every other time we see Yako, both of his eyes are intact, though he does have a serious case of MadEye going throughout the series.
** In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', there are two examples. Jim Cook has one of his eyes replaced by the Orichalcum Eye [[spoiler: (though it's done in a discretion shot, it is implied he smashed his original eye out falling into a river.]] The second one involves Yubel. [[spoiler: When Juudai's memories of their past return, his present self hovers over Yubel as she's being worked on by whoever is managing the transformation. It's made fairly clear they're removing or changing her eyes to be the magical ones they are in the present. The viewer isn't actually shown what happens, but Juudai winces at whatever it is he sees.]]
* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'':
** Played with in Hiei's case. His Jagan Eye transplant, which is a ThirdEye in the middle of his forehead, is described as being the most intense, excruciating pain he's ever felt in his entire life. It seems the process involves a drill like machine ''burrowing'' into the patient's forehead, then implanting the Jagan, which then proceeds to absorb an assload of the patient's energy.
*** Made even worse in the anime when the doctor, a CombatMedic demon named Shigure, claims that the patient has to be strapped to the bed to prevent them from clawing their own eyes out due to the pain. [[ScreamDiscretionShot The scene cuts to outside Shigure's compound,
and the scientists that made him.]]viewers hear a bloodcurdling scream from Hiei.]]
** [[CodeName Doctor]] gets a jar of acid thrown in his eye in the Chapter Black saga
** Played straight with King Yomi, who during a battle in his past had both of his eyes slashed by swords at close range [[spoiler: at the orders of his then-partner Kurama, who was pissed off at him for being a LeeroyJenkins]]. Ouch! Luckily, he managed to wound his assailant with an accidental stab, thus saving himself from death; he later grows into a massive HandicappedBadass, with a super developed [[DisabilitySuperpower sense of hearing]].

* A flashback in ''{{Hellsing}}'' shows a young Seras putting a fork through the eye of an assailant. [[spoiler:Zorin Blitz, who forced her to re-experience that memory presses her eyes against her scythe's blade afterward, brutally slashing both eyes. Seras gets better.]]
** There's also the scene with Jan Valentine in Ultimate Hellsing OVA 2. During his infamous "I highly recommend ''pissing'' yourselves, followed by a course of praying to your impotent ''God!''" spiel, he places his thumb atop the eye of the decapitated head he's playing with and presses down hard causing the eyeball to burst and blood to shoot out.
