** Cleverly subverted in a sequence where they board a possessed underground train. The inside is pitch black, so only four pair of eyes can be seen. However, when the lights come back, we see that they were actually surrounded by a group of skeletal passengers with no eyes in their skulls.

* At one point in the third trial of the third ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' game, there is a power outage, and you can see Phoenix's and Godot's eyes (though, given the fact that Godot's "eyes" are an illuminated visor, it's probably justified). In fact, this is foreshadowing of the fifth case, in which [[spoiler:Godot's illuminated visor becomes vital testimony for a murder which took place in pitch darkness. Phoenix's eyes, not so much.]]

* Used in ''Series/SesameStreet'', when Maria has to go into Oscar's [[BiggerOnTheInside trash can]], in order to hide what the actual interior looked like. Oscar's glowing eyes were identical to his normal ones, though Maria's were clearly Muppet approximations.
* In one classic Muppet sketch, Ernie and Bert run so many appliances in their apartment that it blows a fuse, and the blackout is presented with their eyes floating around in complete darkness.
