* Batman's eye-makeup has this effect, especially in the '89 movie and ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga''--his eyes seem to completely disappear behind the cowl. Edward Nygma kinda-sorta gets one in ''Film/BatmanForever'', when he says, "I'll ''make'' you understand." Granted, it's not quite carried across visually, but Jim Carrey more than makes up for it with just an ever-so-slight forward tilt of his head, a subtle change in his eyes, and that menacing, determined tone; his eyes might as well be hidden in shadow.

* {{Eroge}} games tends do this in a different light -- ''usually'', the protagonist's face is never shown to keep them anonymous. [[{{AFGNCAAP}} This can serve to create a "blank slate" for the player to project themselves into.]]

In some cases, it's simply caused by the character's headwear (such as a baseball cap or helmet) and has nothing to do with emotional stress. For when a hat does this, see EyeObscuringHat, eye-obscuring hoods go under InTheHood, and when it's caused by glasses it's OpaqueNerdGlasses. Only emotional moments qualify for Hidden Eyes.

A character undergoing emotional stress may be shown from a head-on view or directly from the side with their head bowed and their eyes covered by their bangs or forelocks. (Sometimes the shot starts from one angle and cuts midway to the other.) Even if they have no bangs at all, it's their brow ridge that covers them. Their eyes are not drawn, even when they should be at least partially visible through the shadow, giving the impression of a blank face above the bridge of the nose. This usually symbolizes a person driven by events to a point of unpredictable action; when you see this on a cutie, [[BreakTheCutie you know she's been thoroughly broken]].

This could also be used to show how remorseless and intimidating a monster is, particularily when it is attacking some poor, innocent creatures.

** Also subtly in play with Asuka's reaction to her and Shinji's AwkwardKiss, while she makes a big show afterwards of storming to the bathroom under the excuse of wanting to rise out the taste, her eyes is notably hidden. And, indeed, when the scene is played OnceMoreWithClarity in a later episode, it is made clear that Asuka misinterpreted Shinji's awkward reaction to the kiss as a rejection, and her trip to the bathroom was an attempt to hide how deeply hurt she was by this perceived turndown.

* ''Franchise/{{Lufia}}'' series: [[TheBrute Gades]], [[EvilGenius Amon]], and [[BigBad Daos]] of the Evil Gods known as Sinistrals have their top portion of their faces covered at all times in the original trilogy(Pictured [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/lufia/images/5/5b/Thesinistrals.png/revision/latest?cb=20120909124728 here]] in the second game). Sometimes [[GlowingEyesOfDoom glowing]] [[RedEyesTakeWarning red light]] can be seen illuminating from the shadows. The exception is in the reboot ''VideoGame/LufiaCurseOfTheSinistrals'', where the faces of the Sinistrals are visible.
