* Creator/MichaelMoorcock's Eternal Champion series includes [[{{Corum}} Corum Jhaelen Irsei]], who for the first portion of his career wields the eye and hand of a god in place of his own. By lifting the eyepatch he wears over this eye, he can see into a spectral place, where a creature dwells. He can then draw it out, where it will fight for him. Then the next time he lifts the eyepatch, whatever was killed by the creature has taken its place, and now IT can be summoned to fight, apparantly at a greater power level than it possessed before.

* In ''VideoGame/DeusEx'' it is strongly implied, if not outright stated that the otherwise relatively normal looking JC Denton wears sunglasses because he has Evil Eyes.
** But most of the game is set at night and he's completely fine with sunglasses, because [[MemeticMutation his vision is augmented.]]
** In the character creation scene, you can see he has blue glowing eyes.

** The eponymous protagonist of ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'' has a mysterious magical right eye which so far allows him to see various things invisible to the naked eye, like chakra pathways and inter-dimensional barriers. [[spoiler:If this sounds similar to the Byakugan, that's because Boruto's mother is a Hyuga.]]
** The above magical eyes all come from the same source: [[spoiler:Kaguya Otsutsuki, the first being to wield chakra on Earth and the earliest known ancestor of the Uchiha and Hyuga clans. She herself possesses the Byakugan and the Rinne Sharingan, the latter being a ThirdEye in her forehead which allows Kaguya to cast a world-wide [[LotusEaterMachine Lotus-Eater Illusion]], [[ThePowerOfCreation create]] and [[RealityWarper manipulate]] entire realities, and [[ThinkingUpPortals think up portals]] through which she can transport herself and others to her various dimensions.]]

* A couple exist in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': the Sharingan (has three versions), the Rinnegan, the Byakugan, the Tenseigan, and the Rinne Sharingan (which the Sharingan and Rinnegan came from).
** The Sharingan grants the user enhanced vision, precognition, eidetic memory and the ability to perceive [[{{Ki}} chakra]] patterns. The upgraded form, the Mangekyo Sharingan, has so far only been unlocked by seeing one's best friend die and grants the user StoryBreakerPower in the forms of Amaterasu, black flames that cannot be quenched by conventional means, Susano'o, a nigh-invincible spectral armor, and Tsukuyomi, a hard-to-break, time distorting illusion technique. The protagonist's sensei, Kakashi, has one of these, as his Sharingan is constantly active and depletes his chakra supply rapidly when uncovered. Some of the Sharingan's other tricks (typically unique to a specific pair of Sharingan) are varied upon the user and very extravagant, such as Kamui, which can send the victim into another dimension and Kotoamatsukami, which inflicts powerful but subtle to the point of being nigh-undetectable brainwashing.
** The Byakugan gives three-hundred-fifty-nine-degree telescopic x-ray vision, allowing the user to perceive everything around him and see chakra points on a ninja and [[TouchOfDeath strike accordingly]]. The Byakugan has a one-degree blind spot that can be exploited, but doing so requires massive amounts of skill.
** The Rinnegan is a SuperpowerLottery that enhances vision to the point where anything can be seen, grants the ability to use [[ElementalPowers all five elemental chakras]], [[LivingLieDetector kill liars]] and [[{{Necromancer}} resurrect the dead]], [[EnergyAbsorption absorb chakra at will]], [[SummonMagic summon]] {{Animalistic Abomination}}s, [[MindManipulation read minds]] and [[YourSoulIsMine rip out souls]], [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal access an]] AnatomyArsenal, [[AttackReflector deflect attacks and enemies]] with {{Gravity Master}}y and [[RealityWarper warp reality]]. A great deal of the late story's plot revolves around the villains attempting to get their hands on the [[StoryBreakerPower Rinnegan]].
** The above magical eyes all come from the same source: [[spoiler:Kaguya Ootsutsuki, the first person who wielded chakra. She possessed the Byakugan and a ThirdEye in her forehead with the Rinne Sharingan (the Byakugan and the Hyuga clan can be traced back to her, making the Tenseigan also come from her in a way, though she never wielded it). The Rinne Sharingan allowed Kaguya to cast a world-wide [[LotusEaterMachine Lotus-Eater Illusion]], [[ThePowerOfCreation create]] and [[RealityWarper manipulate]] entire realities as well as [[ThinkingUpPortals Think Up Portals]] through which she could transport herself and others to her various dimensions.]]
** In ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'', 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.
** Orochimaru can project his KillingIntent specially well though eye contact, which can paralyze his enemies, if they're not strong enough to resist it. Probably that's why it is never seen again after its initial use.

Some of the Mangekyo Sharingan's other tricks (typically unique to a specific pair of Sharingan) are varied upon the user and very extravagant, such as Kamui, which can send the victim a target ([[PortalCut or just a part of them]]) into another dimension [[spoiler:and allows the user to both teleport and become intangible]], and Kotoamatsukami, which inflicts powerful but subtle subtle-to-the-point-of-being-nigh-undetectable brainwashing. However, overuse of the Mangekyo's powers will eventually cause permanent blindness unless the user can transplant the Mangekyo Sharingan of another Uchiha with strong blood ties; doing so forms an Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan that will never succumb to blindness. The protagonist's sensei, Kakashi Hatake, is a non-Uchiha who possesses a Sharingan thanks to a dying comrade who willingly donated his eye; since Kakashi is not an Uchiha, his Sharingan is constantly active and depletes his chakra supply rapidly when uncovered.

* Dominique the Cyclops from ''Anime/{{Trigun}}'' has a demonic-looking eye, complete with snake pupil, behind a mechanical eyepatch/shutter that allows her to distill her opponent's senses, paralyzing them temporarily to give the false impression she's using a FlashStep technique.

Because her victims are unaware that any time has passed during which they were paralyzed, it gives the false impression that she's using a FlashStep technique.



* Euron Crow's Eye of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' is strongly hinted to have one. What's under his EyepatchOfPower hasn't been revealed yet, but judging by [[TheDreaded the reactions]] of his fellow Ironborn (and these are RatedMForManly Viking expies), the fact that his regular eye is known as his "smiling eye", he's been known to consort with warlocks, and that he flies a personal standard that shows a [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eye]], it's a fair bet.
