* In the Coast Salish tale S-Hal-Ikun, the title character has been changed by a great bird called Thunder, and if he opens his eyes the lightning will flash and if he removes his hat, the thunder will come. This does not contribute to good relations with his neighbours.

* In ''SaintSeiya'' Virgo Shaka, one of the most powerful Golden Saints, maintains his eyes shut to actually keep his power under control. [[spoiler: When Phoenix Ikki finds out, after sorta recuperating from MindRape inflicted by Shaka himself, he tricks him into cutting off ''all'' of his senses and overpowers him in a [[TakingYouWithMe suicidal maneuver]], winning their fight and earning Shaka's respect for outsmarting him.]]

* Ini Miney from ''PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' always has her eyes shut. Even in her driver's license photo. [[spoiler: The Ini we see, however, is actually Mimi Miney, who's impersonating her sister and keeping her eyes shut to fit the role (hers have a very distinctive look). When her facade cracks later in the case, she opens her eyes.]]

** She opens her eyes one other time. She gets excited that Squid Girl is making a friend, and tells her "Good Luck!" with a glare of assurance. Squid Girl interprets it as a threat, and is thoroughly terrified.

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'''s Virgilia has this tendency. Her eyes do open a few times (just one eye in the original, both in the PS3 version), but [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m48c70jee41r35rp2o1_500.png the smile that always accompanies it]] is so creepy, it might just be better if she always kept them closed. For some obscure reason, the anime made her with [[http://subtlechaos.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/vlcsnap-00007.png?w=590 her eyes half-open]] as if she was always sleepy.

* The flame dragon Setsuna in ''FlameOfRecca'' literally keeps his single eye closed. If he opens it, anyone who sees it is instantly annihilated.

* Moogles, frequently, in the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' and ''KingdomHearts'' series. Though some recent games, such as ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' and the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' series have Moogles with their eyes open. [=MiniMog=] from ''Final Fantasy VIII'' was the first ever Moogle to have its eyes open... But it didn't have a pom-pom either.
