* In ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'', Phoenix and Edgeworth frequently do the Blank White Eyes when caught by surprise.
** Look closely at Phoenix's sprite, and you can ''sorta'' make out the pinhole pupil, though.
* On a non-humorous partial example, Ganondorf's eyes go white when he dies.

* Practically ''everybody'' in the supporting cast of ''EliteBeatAgents'' has Blank White Eyes at some point in the game. Even in the TearJerker levels. (Ironically, the agents are some of the characters who ''don't'' get Blank White Eyes; because they're always wearing CoolShades).

This is a [[NewestOnesInTheBook relatively recent trope]]; almost all shows or manga using it having shown up within the past decade. In even more recent media, this trope has seen a much wider range of uses, ranging from the function of making a character look funny, to simply depicting eyes on a character too far away to be drawn in detail.

* TheUndertaker is pro wrestling's TropeCodifier for this. He does this so often it's pretty much part of his gimmick. When Taker rolls his eyes back in his head, most people are running away really fast because when he gets to that point in a match where he decides this is appropriate, it generally means your ass is grass and he's the lawnmower. Ironically, Taker's eyes are ''always'' white in the comic book based on him done by Chaos Comics.
* Judas Messias did the same thing in TNA for awhile before he abruptly vanished from the company.
