** Pupil size is entirely controlled by the autonomic nervous system. The effect of mood is real, but much smaller than the far more basic accommodation for light level. It likewise is not as important as the function of the autonomic nervous system. Pupil dilation is a result of the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system, the part responsible for fight-or-flight. An aggressor will have dilated pupils, as will someone "wide-eyed with fright." Parasympathetic stimulation, the feed-and-breed side of the autonomic nervous system, causes constriction. Likewise, cocaine and amphetamines cause dilation, which heroin causes constriction. Take a look at the size of the pupil of this young Thai boxer [[http://cdn.c.photoshelter.com/img-get/I0000qR.z6BV7vzg/s/750/45-0604-TH-Mae-Sot-Boxing-0338.jpg here]] for illustration.

* In TalesOfTheAbyss, Luke's eyes are drawn noticeably wider after his ImportantHaircut, reflecting the [[CharacterDevelopment significant shift in attitude]] that went along with it. [[spoiler:It might also be indicative of the fact that, as a [[CloningBlues replica]], he's chronologically ten years younger than he looks.]]

** However, it is also {{lampshade|Hanging}}d and subverted once. When AntiHero [[TheRival rival]] Saito first appears, Sano, TheLancer, goes out of the way to point out his small, "squinty" eyes as a reason for concern. While Saito initially acts as an antagonist, he turns out to be ''even more'' tireless than Kenshin in fighting against the bad guys, living his life by the code of "Slay evil immediately". (Fans seemed to have noticed the trope too, as Kenshin's author made a note of how he received many letters from [[TheShinsengumi Shinsengumi]] fans upset at Saito's villainous look when first introducing him).

In many animated series, goodies and baddies are distinguished by [[BigEyesLittleEyes the size of their eyes]]. TheHero, the AllLovingHero, and the WideEyedIdealist will all have big, open, happy, trustful, PuppyDogEyes. On the other hand, the MagnificentBastard, EvilOverlord and CardCarryingVillain will have narrow, shifty eyes. Might be because large eyes makes the face appear more infantile. See also {{Beauty Equals Goodness}}.

* [[HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas The Grinch]], in his AnimatedAdaptation, is depicted with [[RedEyesTakeWarning blood-red pupils]] up until his HeelFaceTurn, after which they become blue.[[note]]As an animation goof, however, they keep darting back from one color to the other[[/note]].

* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', good characters generally have big round eyes and bad ones have narrower ones. If a bad character turns good their eyes usually don't change. In an interesting twist, bad characters' eyes are fully outlined, while good characters only have the outside edges of the eyes outlined. Again, this generally sticks if the character switches sides. Continuing that, when Goku, Gohan or Goten first turn Super Saiyan their eyes adopt the "bad guy" look. Trunks has the bad guy eyes even in his normal state due to him being related to Vegeta.

** A more literal example would be Launch from the Kid Goku chapters. In her blue-haired state she is sweet and gentle, and so has massive round eyes. In her yellow-haired state she's gun-happy, aggressive and vengeful, where her eyes take on a triangular shape.

* The first ''JakAndDaxter'' videogame gave the (then comparatively innocent) main character and his romantic interest eyes the size of soccer balls. The villains' eyes were substantially smaller. Then, over the sequels, this was expanded upon. When Jak TookALevelInBadass at the beginning of ''VideoGame/JakIIRenegade'' and turned into an AntiHero with anger issues, his eyes shrank by about 45%. And then there are the glowing white eyes of his Light Jak form and the black pits of Dark Jak...
