* The short story "Ieia" features a deity trapped in a statue, with glowing amber eyes as the only sign of life. The statue's owner, who doesn't believe in the supernatural, thinks she's imagining the glow. When the deity proves its existence in the course of committing a HeroicSacrifice, the owner is so overcome with reverence that she barely notices the eyes have gone dim.

** In the first game, if you pay careful attention to geth corpses (that [[LudicrousGibs weren't incinerated, frozen, melted, or turned into clouds of ionized gas]]) you'll find that after about ten seconds, their flashbulb heads begin to dim and eventually go out.

It also happens to Saren, showing just how far [[spoiler: he's been implanted with Reaper tech. Shortly afterwards the eyes light back up as Sovereign takes control of his corpse]].

* Optimus Prime in the 1986 ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie''. The authors must have had some bet on how many tropes they can fit into one death scene...
* ''WesternAnimation/WallE's'' AUTO and EVE.
* In the film version of ''WesternAnimation/TheLastUnicorn'', King Haggard at first sees a forest-scape in Lady Amalthea's eyes. After a while in her human form, this image fades to the normal human reflection, hinting at the death of the unicorn inside.

** ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' uses this a lot. Sometimes eyes even ''blow out'' from leftover energy.
** Though it is seen in one part that Frenzy's eyes could stop glowing when he was blending in with the scenery. Playing dead?
** Mind you, a 'bot can be temporarily down and still have his eye lights go out. Don't relax too much if you think your enemy's down until you've made sure his spark chamber is empty. In fact, many instances of this trope have had the robot character in question get better.
