* Literature/TheBible describes some angels as having eyes on all sides of their bodies, making this OlderThanFeudalism.
** Among these angels are angelic beings who, while not named in the Bible, are sometimes referred to as Ophans or Ophanim. They make an appearance in the book of Ezekiel and are described as looking like beryl colored wheels within wheels with rims full of eyes.



* Angels, according to Abrahamic tradition, are very, very guilty of this trope. Looking at just one book in the Bible, Ezekiel, can give you the idea of a common theme: The oraphim, beings contained in two spinning wheels...covered with eyes. It seems angels, in true Abrahamic tradition, are terrifying beings of grotesque body horror. Jewish tradition describes Azrael, the angel of death, with a body consisting of ''nothing but eyes'' and Christian tradition also includes tongues whose number corresponds to the number of people inhabiting the Earth. Metatron, the Face of God and Heavenly Scribe in Jewish mysticism, is said to have a million eyes (and mouths) all over his body. Several Angels and other celestial beings have strange number or placement of eyes, such as ''hundreds covering their wings''. Turns out there was more than one reason to start every conversation with "Do not be afraid"!

* ''Videogame/{{Bloodborne}}'': According to the lore you find in the game, increased Insight makes eyes start "lining your brain", which allows you to see through [[spoiler:the supposed illusion the Great Ones have cast upon Yarnham]]. This seems metaphorical at first, but then you start to find certain enemies that have ''way'' too many eyeballs in places they don't belong, and remember that most of those [[WasOnceAMan were human once]], and start to realize maybe it ''isn't'' metaphorical, and maybe your skull ''is'' full of eyeballs growing out of your brain.
* A common theme with the monsters in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is featuring what appear to be eyes some odd place, implying that the ones on its face aren't really eyes. Froggit has a pair underneath him, Knight Knight has very large ones on her torso, and Gyftrot's real eyes might be at the base of its antlers (notably, they appear to blink while the ones on its face do not).

* Wilbur Whateley in Creator/HPLovecraft's CthulhuMythos novella ''Literature/TheDunwichHorror'' has two extra eyes on the sides of his pelvis, with a creepy organ for sucking blood in between them. Lovecraft called it a 'tail', but [[{{Squick}} we all know what he meant...]]

* A teratoma is a type of tumor in which tissues of very different type (compared to tissues which would be normal for that location on the body) may form ''actual organs'' inside the tumor. Relatively simple structures like teeth and hair are the most common organs that occur in a teratoma, but more complex organs have also been reported, such as feet, hands, and - you guessed it - ''eyes''.

* Argos, or Argus [[BilingualBonus Pano]][[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ptes]], of [[Myth/GreekMythology Greek myth]], had eyes all over his body, and he kept a constant watch by sleeping only some of them at a time. He was pretty {{Badass}} too. Argos was the one who slew Echidna, the mother of all monsters.
