** During Naruto's training with Killer Bee to control the Nine-Tails, he is made to fight his EnemyWithout, a manifestation of his lingering resentment toward the Leaf Village for the ostracization he suffered as a [[SealedInAPersonShapedCan jinchuuriki]]. It takes the form of Naruto, with black sclera and red (in place of Naruto's blue) irises, which return to their normal color when Naruto learns that the only way to win the fight is to accept his own feelings and move on. During his later BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind with the Nine-Tails, one of Naruto's eyes starts to change to black and red when the Nine-Tails nearly takes over him through ThePowerOfHate, but [[spoiler:meeting his late mother's spirit]] reverses this.

* Undead in ''Franchise/DarkSouls'' nearly always have sunken, black eye sockets when they go Hollow, and with the exception of the PlayerCharacter, when they look like that, they've gone irrevocably, murderously insane.

* Played straight and [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in ''TheZombieHunters''.

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]]. It also heavily overlaps with BlackEyesOfEvil, due to AxCrazy being a subtrope of ObviouslyEvil.
