** Used extensively against various [[BritneySpears cele]][[TomCruise brities]] to prove they are "crazy" or "depressed" or that "something happened to them", usually wrongly, as judging somebody by their eyes is subjective.

* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies''. Poor Athena gets these when a particular incident in her past is brought up...[[spoiler:and, during the flashback, we get to see her thousand-yard stare right after the actual murder. Unsettling, at the very least]].

* ''BlackButler'': [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] with Ciel. Although his eyes still have a normal amount of luster, he also had a ''lot'' more sparkle before [[YouKilledMyFather everything]] [[DoomedHometown went to]] [[BreakTheCutie shit]].

* Haruka Kotoura of ''Manga/KotouraSan'' initially has these (of the 'no iris' variety) after far too many {{Heroic BSOD}}s to count in her life, which thankfully doesn't last too long in-show.

*** However, in the new PlayStation endings where [[spoiler: Sekai kills Kotonoha by either pushing her in front of a train or stabbing her off-screen]], she does '''not''' have these eyes. This implies that [[spoiler: while Kotonoha ''is'' effectively {{Yandere}} in her bad endings, Sekai is ''sane'' in hers, except for the Makoto-killing one.]] [[InternetBackdraft And the fandom has reacted accordingly.]]

* ''Videogame/YandereSimulator'': Yandere-chan's eyes go blank when "yandere vision" is active.

* ''Videogame/YandereSimulator'': Yandere-chan's eyes go blank when "yandere vision" is active.Students who've had their minds broken through ColdBloodedTorture have this look. You can then take them to school and ask them to perform a MurderSuicide. The VillainProtagonist herself can have this if she becomes "visibly insane", though it's less unhappiness and more the MaskOfSanity slipping, revealing her true nature as a murderous psychopath.

** Happens to Mello when he removes his motorcycle helmet during the Takada mission. This is likely because a) he just found out that [[spoiler: his best friend Matt was killed]] and b) he knew he'd likely be next.

* In ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'', Miaka notes that Yui's eyes are unusually dull and that something seems different about her, when Miaka first sees her at the Palace of Kutou, before learning of Yui's [[spoiler: alleged]] rape. However, this is [[InformedAttribute not really apparent to the audience]].
