Some characters just need a way to show off how [[DarkIsEvil undeniably evil they are]]. Unfortunately, [[BlackEyesOfEvil pure black eyes]] just seem too monochrome and don't allow said character to show off an extra spark of insanity. Cue the Black Eyes Of Crazy. In these cases, the sclerae or [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sclera sclera]] (the whites of the eyes) [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin are black]], as are the pupils, but the irises themselves retain their colour, [[TechnicolorEyes which can vary]]. Generally an indication that the character is not above going on a rabid, murderous rampage, and, as such, usually coincides with AxCrazy, though this rule is not [[DarkIsNotEvil absolute]].

* In ''VideoGam/DragonFable'', recent class revamps for Necromancer and Death Knight included new artwork which gives both classes these eyes, with green and red irises, respectively. As well, Icebound Revenant is a new armor [[{{Microtransactions}} that can only be obtained with Dragon Coins]]; it's essentially an ice-themed variant on Death Knight, with blue irises, appropriately enough.

* Black sclerae are actually fairly common among the eyes of apes in general (apart from humans). Most gorillas have black sclerae, but a few individuals have white ones or even a "piebald" combination. It has been theorized that human beings began to favor white sclerae as it helped with non-verbal communication. White sclerae was desired in a potential mate to the point that the genes for black sclera are have pretty much disappeared from humans and are now seen as "unnatural" or even [[UncannyValley creepy]]. Hence why this trope and BlackEyesOfEvil even exist.
