* Any time on ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' where it gets dark, the only things that can be seen are a character's eyes and teeth.

* Spoofed in the ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' episode "Gang Busters", where Buster and Plucky get put in "The Hole" while in prison, and pass the time by using their illuminated eyeballs to play ''Pong'' and ''Pac-Man''. The best part of that scene was when Buster and Plucky lit a match, and when the room was lit, ''all that remained were their eyeballs.''

ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes seems like it should always go with GlowingEyes, but it really doesn't.

* [=MetaKnight=] in ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}''. While his face is shadowed by his mask, he has shiny eyes.



* This happened all the time on ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', though 90% of the time it was Batman himself doing it. He was often drawn so that the only thing visible in his silhouette was his eyes. The current trope picture is from the opening sequence, where a couple of {{mooks}} [[OhCrap see Batman arrive]].

** There's another episode where not only Homer's eyes are visible in the dark so are his teeth.
** One CouchGag showed the family's eyes rushing to the couch in darkness, and then the lights turn on, revealing that they're all just eyes, and then the (eyeless) family joins in, at which their eyes immediately place themselves onto their faces.

** Lampshaded in "The Man Who Grew Too Much," when Marge tells Homer that the brightness of his eyes are keeping her up.

* Used in ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' when the members of Dethklok snuck into a closet to eat food, since they were supposed to be on diets.
* The eyes at the very end of the last ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' episode. True, they were only part of a cliffhanger that was never expanded upon outside of WordOfGod because the show was ScrewedByTheNetwork, but still...

* This happens in a Season 2 episode of ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender''. Keith and Lance get stuck in an elevator when the power goes out, and their eyes are still visible for a few seconds before the scene cuts away from them.

* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''
** In [[BizarroEpisode "One + One = Ed"]], following a transition to black, the Eds' eyes and teeth appear on the dark screen. The blackness then zooms out to reveal they're inside Kevin's pupil.
** Throughout "A Case of Ed", Ed and Eddy taunt Kevin from outside his house when he gets grounded. One moment involves a scene fading to black, followed by Kevin's eyes appearing in the dark; the scene then cuts to reveal that Ed and Eddy had built a brick wall around his house.
-->'''Kevin:''' Okay, ''now'' I'm mad.

* Possibly inspired by this is that it used to be believed that light came from someone's eyes and that was how they saw but this an old (500 BCE old) theory, discarded in Early Modern Age.

* In the Disney World version of ''Franchise/TheHauntedMansion'' there is a point where the Doom Duggy is sorrounded by demonic eyes that look around and blink. As it moves to an area with better lighting, these eyes are revealed to be designs in the wallpaper. What makes this especially strange is that some of the eyes in the dark section are closer than other nearby ones, and a few are even moving in 3D space.
* ''Journey into the Dark'' is an attraction from the Ride/{{Futuroscope}} that put you into the shoes of blind people. The only thing you'll ever see in the darkness is [[spoiler:the glowing eyes of the [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Yeti]] at the end of the walkthrough]].
