* Barnaby from ''TigerAndBunny'' wears hexagonal glasses (which can be seen as something of a cross between rectangular and circular lenses) and starts the series as both a StoicSpectacles with {{Tsurime}} and a SugarAndIcePersonality who sometimes treads into {{Tsundere}} territory. He does, however, [[DefrostingIceKing change quite a bit as the series progresses.]]
* Father Alexander Anderson from {{Hellsing}} wears perfectly round glasses and is shown to be a gentle and rather amiable man. But in battle, his glasses immediately turn an opaque blue and he sports a seemingly constant SlasherSmile. Alucard himself sports a SlasherSmile and round glasses, but is an amoral vampire willing to take out an army of {{Mooks}} without hesitation.

While glasses are universally seen as a sign of intelligence, in anime it's the shape of the frames that's telling of the personality. Generally speaking, characters with rectangular or square frames tend to have "harsher" personalities that range from emotionally distant to downright evil. Characters with the circular frames (they can be ovals or perfect circles, depending on how serious the work is) have more "soft" personalities that range from comically nerdy to shy and sweet.

Added DiffLines:

* Els Tasmin of ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'' has horizontal, oval frames. While she tries her hardest to be the stern and serious type of character, her personality is closer to comical ButtMonkey.

* ''{{Saiyuki}}'' has an interesting example, in that [[{{Yandere}} Cho Gonou]] is shown with square glasses, while [[ThatManIsDead Cho]] [[MeaningfulRename Hakkai]] has a single round [[HighClassGlass monocle]] instead.

Added DiffLines:

* Weevil Underwood/Insector Haga of ''Anime/YuGiOh'' is a bit of an interesting case. Despite having very narrow, creepy-looking, {{Tsurime}} eyes and having a pretty {{Jerkass}} SmugSnake personality, both sets of glasses he wears are very rounded. This may have been intentionally done to make him look more [[AnimalMotif insect-like]].
