[[TheUndead Undead]] creatures will often be depicted as having glowing eyes, usually without any explanation. Then again, in magic-based undead this might either be the glow of the animating magic or magical eyes, created specifically [[TheDeadHaveEyes to allow undead to see posthumously.]] Ones that do not actually have eyes, like reanimated skeletons and incorporeal ghosts, will often have glowing lights where the eyes would be. Occasionally, it will be twin ghost-fires burning in the sockets. It is by no means a universal trait of undead. Should {{Undeath|AlwaysEnds}} end and the glow fade, it's EyeLightsOut.

Then again, in magic-based undead this might either be the glow of the animating magic or magical eyes, created specifically [[TheDeadHaveEyes to allow undead to see posthumously.]] It could be explained as the only visible part of the soul that inhabits the rotting body. Ones that do not actually have eyes, like reanimated skeletons and incorporeal ghosts, will often have glowing lights where the eyes would be. Occasionally, it will be twin ghost-fires burning in the sockets. It is by no means a universal trait of undead. Should {{Undeath|AlwaysEnds}} end and the glow fade, it's EyeLightsOut.

* Seems to be a sign of intelligent undead in ''Webcomic/OurLittleAdventure'': creatures like the [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0126.html farmstead wights]], the [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0275.html forest wraith]], and [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0641.html the Bone]] have them, but mindless skeletons and zombies [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0640.html don't]].

** Kingfin in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', although surprisingly not the standard undead enemies. Said boss also has an even more extreme case of this, because the eyes seem to shoot light beams in the direction it's looking or [[http://www.mariowiki.com/Image:Kingfin.jpg something.]]

* In Creator/SimonRGreen's ''Literature/{{Nightside}}'' series, Merlin Satanspawn has empty eye sockets filled with flames. He's the Devil's son, and every time these eyes are mentioned it's commented that "he has his father's eyes". He's first met as an undead, but when his live version is encountered (while time traveling to the era of ArthurianLegend in ''Paths Not Taken'') he already has the freaky flaming eye-sockets.

** ''Undertale'' fans have tried giving Papyrus eyes like Sans. It seems he doesn't have them [[http://peregrinethegryphon.tumblr.com/post/134231727657/hip-new-undertale-au because he ends up looking needlessly creepy with them]].

* The Witch-King of Angmar, from the [[SoBadItsGood Animated Adaptation]] of ''WesternAnimation/TheReturnOfTheKing''. He also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWjt6LGhHsI talks like Skeletor.]] [[AdaptationDisplacement Ironically]], the Witch-King's Glowing Eyelights of Undeath are accurate to [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings the book]]. They are the only thing visible except his crown.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/Fallout4'''s feral ghouls, though more TechnicallyLivingZombie than truly undead, have glowing yellow eyes that make them especially creepy in dimly lit areas and the first strain of their species with this particular trait in the entire ''Fallout'' universe.
