Added DiffLines:

* PlayedForLaughs in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' episode "Let's Play the Quest for the Wholly Gruel", where Kaeloo puts in fully black contact lenses and can't see a thing because of them.
** Played completely straight when she undergoes SanitySlippage in [[spoiler: Episode 100]].

* ''Discworld/SmallGods'' has Vorbis, who comes from a desert tribe with black sclerae (it's mentioned he looks like he's wearing his sunglasses on the inside). On the Disk, where eyes are very much the window to the soul, he's bad news indeed, though of TheFundamentalist kind of crazy rather than [[InsaneEqualsViolent the loud, multiple-exclamation-points type.]]

* ''Manga/CodeBreaker'': The five "Angels" (plus [[spoiler: Sakura when she was a child]]), a five-bad-band of PowerNullifier[=s=] whose eyes go jet-black when they suck the life out of power-users, in this case [[ForTheEvulz just for fun]]. [[spoiler: Fortunately the power-users' masters anticipated that and made one of them Magneto: an iron beam in of itself isn't a power.]]

* ''FanFic/TheBridge'' uses this as a way to distinguish between [[NobleDemon Monster X]] and his SuperPoweredEvilSide, Kaizer Ghidorah. When turned into a human in the Equestria Girls realm, X has normal white eyes (albeit with a red iris), Kaizer Ghidorah has a black sclerae. [[spoiler: Similarly when Aria Blaze copies some of their powers and channels Kaizer Ghidorah's energy, her features shift to resemble Kaizer's. One of which is this trope.]]

* Overlord Pram from ''VideoGame/MakaiKingdom'' has them, though she's more [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]] than crazy. In the same game, the legitimately AxCrazy [[TheBerserker Berserker]] class has them as well, even carrying over into Disgaea 3.

* Both subverted and played straight in ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'': black scleras are rather common, but they don't necessarily mean anything about the owner's behavior. While some bearers of them are described in the Pokedex as being violent and dangerous (Most notably Hydreigon), it's never shown to be a consistent trait among their species [[InformedAttribute (If it's even shown at all)]].

* 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.[[/folder]]

* The [[http://loonadventure.tumblr.com/ moon]] blog features an AlternateCharacterInterpretation of Princess Luna from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' who has gone insane from her 1000 years of isolation on the moon and now sports these kinds of eyes, along with the occasional black {{Tears of| Blood}}... something.

* OlderThanYouThink: the 1949 WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes short ''Bee-Deviled Bruin'' has Papa Bear develop these (white irises on black) after finding out all his attempts to get honey were for naught as Mama had a cupboard full. Actually pretty scary.

** The Son is the AnthropomorphicPersonification of TheDarkSide, and he has [[GlowingEyesOfDoom glowing]], [[RedEyesTakeWarning red]] pupils, surrounded by [[BlackEyesOfEvil pitch-black sclerae, without irises]], and he has a spectacular SanitySlippage through-out the Mortis-arc.

* In ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', Match, who is a [[FlawedPrototype flawed]], [[PsychoPrototype insane]] [[CloningBlues clone]] of Superman, has black sclerae and blue irises. Apart from the black sclerae, he looks exactly like Superboy, the second clone of Superman.

* In ''ScrappedPrincess'' episode 3 or 4, when everybody besides Pacifica gets put under mind control, this is expressed by turning all of their sclerae black (and their irises red). Whenever anybody is snapped out of it, their eyes return to normal.

* [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' with Genos, who has black sclerae due to being a cyborg but is otherwise one of the most vertuous, self-sacrificing and law-abiding characters in the series.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', male Au Ra of the Xaela clan have dark sclera, which coupled with their dark scales, horns, and sharp facial features lends them an unavoidably sinister look. They're not exactly evil, though their clan's culture is noted as being violent, consisting of several nomadic tribes that are constantly warring with one another over territory.
