If only one eye has magical abilities, an EyepatchOfPower is very likely, especially if this eye possesses a distinct look, like color or shape (which might only appear during active use). The Magical Eye is often used as an excuse to apply certain patterns or symbols to a particular power, therefore making it Cool and Symbolic. Even more symbolic, the eye possessing the power is almost always the character's left eye (the left eye is considered the "sinister" eye, as "sinister" was once a word for "left"). Closely related to the RedRightHand.

Furthermore, the "uniqueness" of the Magical Eye compared to its more mundane non-magical counterpart can serve as a DualityMotif, symbolically highlighting a contrast in its bearer's own character. Closely related to the RedRightHand.

* Wisely, one of the Noahs of ''DGrayMan'', has ''three'' evil eyes in his forehead. In his first appearance, he makes [[YourHeadAsplode heads explode]].
** Of course, let's not forget the hero whose left eye can see the souls powering Akuma.

* In the {{Deryni}} works, these are attributed to Barrett de Laney by a panicky human priest. After Barrett surrenders himself in exchange for twenty-three children, the priest hisses, "His eyes! Evil! Evil! Beware his eyes my lord!" The gathered crowd takes up the cry and his captors take the hint; they blind Barrett with a hot iron as a precaution, despite their intention to kill him anyway.

* ''Anime/MekakucityActors'' (the anime-adaptation of The ''{{Kagerou Project}}'') is about a group of teenagers with abilities related to their eyes, dubbed 'Eye-Powers'. This includes the ability to become invisible, read minds, change others' perception of oneself, freeze people in place (or go the full gamut and [[TakenForGranite turn them to stone]]), attract other peoples' attention (or, their eyes), immortality, clairvoyance, remaking one's body, [[spoiler: photographic memory]] and, perhaps most importantly, [[spoiler: the ability to 'combine-eyes', used to attract other ability holders to the [[HiveQueen 'Queen']]]].

* One of the main symbols of ''BrokenSaints'' is a circular red eye with a black cat-like slit for a pupil--basically, it's a simplified version of the Eye of Sauron from the ''LordOfTheRings'' movies, [[OlderThanTheyThink although the series started before the first film was released]]. However, in keeping with the multi-layered nature of the series, the eye is [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything not just an eye]]. Take a look at the symbol and how it is used in the series, and think of what else it looks like...

* ''The Girl With Silver Eyes'' by Willo Davis Roberts gets telekineses and some sort of vision-at-a-distance from her silver eyes.
** Sort of... Her eyes are just an outward manifestation of [[spoiler:the mutation that occurred when her mother and four others took an experimental anti-nausea drug while pregnant]]. She still has an [[MilkyWhiteEyes unusual eye color,]] but it isn't quite the same thing as this trope.
*** This is not to be confused with the Creator/DashiellHammett [[Literature/TheContinentalOp Continental Op]] story of the same title, where the silver eyes are just an especially striking feature of TheVamp.

* Jagang, the main antagonist of most of the SwordOfTruth series, has eyes which have been describes as "twin windows into nightmare". It is not surprising that his powers are essentially mind reading and possession.

* In ''TheLostRoom'' miniseries, the Glass Eye is a powerful artifact that can restore/heal or destroy all flesh. Karl Kreutzfeld had to take his own eye out to use it, as the Glass Eye must be inside the eye socket of the wearer to function.

** In ''Anime/Naruto7TheLast'', it's revealed that when someone of pure Ootsutsuki bloodline replaces [[spoiler:their original Byakugan]] with someone else's, it can evolve into the Tenseigan. It has only a couple of the abilities of the Rinnegan, but it gets the best ones for direct combat: ability to use all five elements and gravity manipulation, along with greatly enhancing the wielder's chakra capacity.
