* ''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.

* ''Webcomic/EverydayHeroes'' makes use of this trope [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=136660 in a flashback]] with the bad guys sneaking in the dark.

* 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]].

* ''Literature/LoneWolf'': An interesting variation occurs in ''The Kingdoms of Terror''. Lone Wolf is being attacked by a very fast monster with glowing eyes in a pitch-black castle. If you choose to fire an arrow at its eyes you actually get a bonus to your success roll since, because they're glowing, they're ''an easier target.''

A SisterTrope of TheDarknessGazesBack. Not to be confused with SeeTheWhitesOfTheirEyes, which is a figurative expression for getting close to your enemy. Nor EyeLightsOut, which is a death trope.

* In ''Nightlight'' (2015), the dog's eyes reflect as twin circles of light whenever the flashlight glints off them in the dark. [[spoiler: That's all we see of it - points of light being violently yanked off-camera in the blackness - when it dies.]]

* Seeking shelter on a coral reef, Chris and Martin on ''WesternAnimation/WildKratts'' are joined in a pitch-black rock crevice by a ''huge'' pair of eyes. This is all the more alarming in that they're miniaturized at the time, hence ''very'' vulnerable to predators. [[spoiler: Fortunately, it's just a harmless blowfish.]]
