* When ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'''s eyes glow or -God forbids- flare it'cycks a very scary sign that she's getting really pissed off, and someone is about to be pummelled and/or blasted.

** When a villain (or ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}) is ''really'' getting on ComicBook/{{Cyclops}}' nerves, a glow can be seen through/around his shades or visor. As his EyeBeams are [[PowerIncontinence always on]], this probably indicates that their blast is becoming far more intense.

*** Being related to Cyclops will do that. His other brother Kid Vulcan has them, and his alt-reality daughter Ruby does as well.

*** Her daughter [[Characters/XMen80sMembers Rachel]] (who actually was the Phoenix host for far longer Jean, not that any writers remember that these days) has a glowing left eye (just like her half-brother Cable; see above), except that in addition to the glow it's surrounded by a glowing Phoenix emblem. Normally it's yellow, but a recent upgrade turned it blue.

** In the ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' storyline they glowed red when she fought Lobo and beat him up brutally, when she accepted the Red Ring of Rage, before smashing down a whole alien invader force...

* Some of the characters in ''TheBlackHeart'' have these; Animus' single eye glows yellow, so do Hashi's eyes. Final has two huge glowing yellow eyes, and their glow amplifies whenever he casts powerful magic. In a particularly sinister variation, Janos is always portrayed as a dark silhouette, and generally with a single red eye glowing.

** [[TheThrawnTrilogy Grand Admiral Thrawn]] from TimothyZahn's ''Star Wars'' spinoff novels is a Chiss, a race of aliens closely related to humans but with blue skin and featureless glowing {{red eyes|TakeWarning}}. He's a [[WickedCultured gentleman]] [[TheStrategist military]] [[MagnificentBastard commander]] of a villain, rather than someone who will flip out and burn you with laser beams from his eyes, and while he's definitely a bad guy he's complex and not strictly ''evil''. The glow is nonetheless unsettling, and [[EyeLightsOut goes out when he dies]].

* While not strictly a glow, the Eyeshine caused by the Tapetum lucidum in nocturnal animals is often regarded as disquieting. Experienced outdoorsmen can often identify a creature by the colour of the eyes peering at them in the darkness, with the greenish-gold of big cats and coyotes, and the distinctive yellow of wolves and bears more than living up to the trope.

* When Phobos of the ComicBook/SecretWariors is using his fear power, his eyes glow purple. Sometimes, notably seen in ComicBook/SecretInvasion, the power coming from his eyes actually escapes, and he has trails of purple energy around his eyes. When Phobos wants someone to be scared, they get scared.

Sometimes, notably seen in ComicBook/SecretInvasion, the power coming from his eyes actually escapes, and he has trails of purple energy around his eyes. When Phobos wants someone to be scared, they get scared.This occasionally scares people before he starts using his power, such as when he uses them on Norman Osborn.
