* You can tell when someone is possessed in ''Manga/YumekuiMerry'' by their eyes. Or the audience can. It's never made clear if the characters can tell.
** Since people out of the loop react more to their friends' [[DemonicPossession bizarre behavior]] than anything else, it's probably for the audience's benefit. Like in ''Franchise/CodeGeass'' when Lelouch Geasses someone.
* When Trafalgar Law of ''Manga/OnePiece'' switches people's minds around, their eyes change as well. Except for Nami.

* Mystique from the ''Film/{{X-Men}}'' movies usually has a perfect disguise, but her reptilian-like eyes will occasionally flash while in another form. That's mostly just to show the audience that it's her, though.

* ''Discworld/InterestingTimes'': "Gods can take any form, but the one aspect of themselves they cannot change is their eyes, which show their nature." The Lady and Fate are mentioned as specific examples.
** In the same vein, Teatime's eyes in TroperWorks/ResurrectionMen are a fanfic example.

* The master in ''Literature/{{Krabat}}'' has magic to take on a different appearance, but he'll always be missing the one eye he lacks in real life. Also applies to animals he creates. (When Krabat tries to run away, he repeatedly meets black animals with one eye - it's not sure whether they're the shapeshifted master, or created by him.)
* Inverted in Literature/{{Animorphs}} #6 The Capture. [[spoiler: After the group has realized that Jake is being controlled by a Yeerk, one of them looks in his eyes and comments that "all {they} can see is Jake".]] However, it was the brief look of intense hatred in his eyes that tipped off Ax in the first place.

* A one-off villain from ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'', called the Chameleon, could turn into practically anything, but her eyes remained unchanged. Oddly enough, the characters never mention this and are only able to tell who she is by the hiss in her voice.

* When Ghostfreak became a separate evil entity in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben10}}'', people who were possessed by him would have his eyes instead of theirs.
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has an odd example: when [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Bill Cipher]] [[DemonicPossession possesses someone]], their [[HellishPupils pupils become slits like Bill's]], but their eyes also become yellow, even though Bill's [[{{Cyclops}} eye]] is white. [[spoiler:Ford]] is apparently aware of this, since he checked Stan's eyes to make sure he wasn't possessed in [[Recap/GravityFallsS2E12ATaleOfTwoStans one episode]], and took off his ScaryShinyGlasses to prove he himself wasn't possessed in [[Recap/GravityFallsS2E15TheLastMabelcorn another]].

* The dragons in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' all keep their reptilian pupils when they take on human form, though the distribution of color on the iris changes (instead of a darker color outlining the pupil it becomes a gradient from top to bottom). Lucoa is an exception to the rule, though that's probably because she was originally a goddess.

** Also, in the episode "Carpet Diem," whenever someone switches bodies with Waddles the pig, who has dots for eyes, they keep their regular eyes, but the person whose body is taken over by Waddles doesn't have Waddles' eyes.
