* In later works by AkiraToriyama, especially ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', people who die with their eyes open will have no pupils. (examples: everywhere!) Grayish or rough pupils mean critical injury/dying but not yet dead. (example: Yamcha after being impaled by Dr. Gero in the Android saga)

On the big or small screen, if someone falls over motionless with their eyes wide open, it is a sure sign that they are dead--not unconscious, not capable of being resuscitated, but dead for good. In real life the position of the eyelids means nothing; people can pass out or fall asleep with their eyes open.

* Quite a lot of deaths in ''OneThousandWaysToDie'' feature this. Fitting, as it ''is'' a show about death.

** We actually see his eyes go foggy as he [[KilledOffForReal dies for real]]. He gets better, though.

* A lot of characters in ''Manga/ElfenLied'' die this way, due to the fact that they're usually in mid-action when killed. Along with the fact that they're being killed by something they can't see, and that about half of the people killed don't even know exists.

* ''Film/TheAntBully'' Has a rather horrifying example. Lucas finds himself in the belly of a frog. Other bugs who have shared the same fate are there with him and are in an understandably foul mood. They are being digested after all. There is one exception who urges these bugs to be more optimistic and cites a smiling bug as an example, asking the others why they can't be more like him. He attempts to lift the smiling bug, only to discover that its only a head with nothing else attached and its eyes wide open. Sure [[GoOutWithASmile the head is smiling ear to ear]] but it isn't a peaceful or pleasant smile, it's a nervous and bracing one.

* At the end of the first 2/3rds of ''VideoGame/FarCry3'', Jason stabs Vaas several times in the heart, his face frozen in shock. Both he and Jason fall to the ground, still staring blankly at his killer, [[spoiler: and then he looks at Jason.]] What really happened is blurry as Jason was [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane (most likely)]] in a bizarre hallucination but Jason is assured that Vaas did die.
