** 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]].

A few episodes after that, [[spoiler: Mabel is tricked into giving the time-travelling Blendin the remains of a dimensional rift, which he breaks]] before taking off his goggles and revealing the eyes that show he was actually possessed by Bill.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12023508/1/Kaitō-Kokoro Kaitō Kokoro]]'': Feliciano noticed a ''strong'' resemblence between Kiku's and Nihon's eyes. [[spoiler:It's because they are one in the same.]]
-->A jovial laugh rang out. "Well, I highly doubt there are any other Clouded Leopards that are black all over and have bodies five feet long." Piercing ebon orbs widened as his cheeks were cupped, brought close to hazel. "But his most memorable feature is his black eyes...which look so much like yours." Realization dawned on him. "They look exactly like yours! I wonder why?"

-->"M-Maybe it's just a coincidence?!" This is not good! Not good at all!

* ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars'': Shoutmon normally [[AvertedTrope averts]] this, as the CombiningMecha-esque nature of [[FusionDance DigiXros]] means that most of his advanced forms have entirely new heads. It's played straight in the GrandFinale as a demonstration of just how strong Shoutmon's HeroicSpirit has become (and [[TheGoodKing how much his people believe in him to lead them]]), with his normal blue eyes staying unchanged and continuing to stare down the BigBad even as the rest of his body morphs into his ultimate combined form.

* 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.

** 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.

* 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.
