** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Hinoxes and Guardians are particularly vulnerable to being shot in the eye. Hinoxes eventually catch on - once their health has been reduced by half, if they see Link draw his bow when they're not in the middle of an attack, they use a hand to shield their eye.

*** Guardian lasers can only be aborted by shooting them in the eye or leaving their sight (either by taking cover or through [[TimeStandsStill Stasis]]). Fire an Ancient Arrow in their eye, however, and they [[OneHitKill break down]].

* ''[[Franchise/DevilMayCry Devil May Cry 3]]'' has the boss Beowulf. While it's not compulsory to hit him in the eye to damage him, and he does have a [[LightIsNotGood light-blast]] to- try and deter your doing so, striking him in the eye does more damage and causes him to flail about for a bit, allowing one to get a bit more distance from him. More importantly however, striking him in the eye for the hit that causes his TurnsRed response will cause him to fall to the ground briefly, allowing for some more hits to be delivered against him. You will need those hits.

** This also sets up [[spoiler:Casca's only Apostle kill during the Eclipse, when Judeau puts out one of its eyes with his last throwing knife, just before Casca slices the demon in half]].

** The Cerberus Guardian enemy carries a large riot shield to protect itself from attacks from the front. To kill them, you need to either neutralize the shield somehow (use a forceful attack to stagger the Guardian, use Biotic Pull to rip the shield out of their hands, or attack them from the flank where the shield doesn't protect them) or carefully aim a shot through the narrow slit that they look through. You even get an achievement for killing 10 Guardians by shooting them through the shield's view-slit.

** In ''VideoGame/Borderlands2'' critical hit locations can be anywhere depending on the monster - headshots for most humans, joint shots for Gun Loaders, abdomen shots for bug monsters - but threshers and the nastiest Loader variants, such as SGT and ION Loaders, are mostly vulnerable to eye shots.

*In {{Portal}}, you fight [[spoiler:GLaDOS]] by shooting misiles to knock off and incinerate Cores attached of her, which conveniently all look like eyeballs.
**Subverted in {{Portal 2}} when you have to ADD cores to [[spoiler:Wheatly]] in order to defeat him.
**It should also be noted that even though both [[spoiler:Wheatly and GLaDOS are both cores that look like eyeballs,]] they can be hit anywhere to knock cores off/add new ones.

** Also in "Laser Light Cannon"; the enemy is a Red Eye. It's literally [[spoiler:a scout ship/drone sent from homeworld/Peridot]] shaped like an eyeball.

* The manga adaptation of ''Manga/KingdomHeartsI'', in a break from the game's events has Sora use a quote from Battle of the Bengal Tiger (When you encounter a giant enemy, aim for the eye. No one can train one's eyes...) against the giant Heartless.

* Wrestling in the south didn't always involve {{Kayfabe}}. It used to be nastily brutal, with fighters growing their thumbnails long for the purpose of gouging eyes. They also bit off ears.
