** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', This is a trait of the Dremora, an intelligent race of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] who are most commonly found in the service of [[DestroyerDeity Mehrunes Dagon]] as his LegionsOfHell. (Other games give them [[RedEyesTakeWarning red]] or [[SupernaturalGoldEyes gold]] eyes instead.)

* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker''
** It's not presented as evil (at least insofar as stealing a person's soul and free will is [[ValuesDissonance presented as]] "not evil"; the show's basically taken the route of "types of magic aren't evil, it's what you do with them"), but whenever a Confessor uses her power, there is a close up of her eyes (and the eyes of her victim) turning pure black for a few moments. This isn't the case in the original books, though the effect is somewhat similar to the villainous Emperor Jagang's permanently black eyes.

Can somebody confirm whether this is also the case in the original books?
** There's no mention of eyes changing when the Confessor power is used in the book, but [[BigBad Emperor Jagang's]] eyes are noted as being black and swirly portals...or something. Point is, they're weird eyes and he's '''bad'''.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, some [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire]] bloodlines have this as a trait. Others instead have pale white EmptyEyes with no pupils or irises, while others still have SuperNaturalGoldEyes. (It's implied that they may all have these glowing gold eyes, but only beings with divine souls, such as the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', can actually see them.)

* ''Series/BabylonFive'' was one of the first to use this trope, although the characteristic came from the Vorlons, which until the end of the Old Ones MythArc were generally viewed as the good guys, if misguided. When telepath Lyta Alexander makes psychic contact with the BigBad Shadows, her eyes turn pure black, but return to normal when contact is broken. After prolonged contact, she also began to weep black tears.
