** Makes you wonder why it was such a problem during Voldemort's reign (according to Moody) when anyone could tell when someone was affected by it. [[ViewersAreMorons Probably a case of the studio deciding the audience were too dumb to understand without a visual hint.]]

* In ''Anime/HellsingUltimate'', when Alucard mind-controls someone, their eyes will typically glow like candle-flame like his. This is best illustrated in the scene when Alucard mind-controls a SWAT soldier into opening the elevator doors that a whole bunch of the soldier's buddies are packed in to try to escape him.

** The same happens to Kagome Higurashi thrice: when she had her soul stolen by Urasue to re-create Kikyou, when Tsubaki the Dark Priestess curses her, [[spoiler: and when the evil baby Akago attempts to brainwash her through MoreThanMindControl]]. Except for the first time, she breaks free pretty much out of her own and delivers a ShutUpHannibal speech to the culprit.

* In the original season of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', Tommy's eyes periodically glowed neon green when he was under Rita's control- usually at points when the spell was asserting itself over what he would do normally, although it also happened whenever it would look the most menacing and nobody was around to see. * One of the sure signs that someone is possessed by a demon in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' is a flash of completely-black eyes. Particularly powerful demons show other colors in the eyes they possess - Azazel shows yellow eyes, while Lilith and Alastair show white eyes.

* In ''{{Drakengard}}'', the soldiers of [[TheFederation the Union]] often refer to the soldiers of TheEmpire as "red-eyed devils" because the only thing they can see out of their face-concealing helmets is the red glow of their eyes. Later, when Inuart is [[MoreThanMindControl brainwashed]] by [[BigBad the empress]], he also gains MindControlEyes similar to the Imperial soldiers.

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', swirly mind-control eyes are [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0183.html visible to the other characters]], rather than [[PaintingTheMedium simply an artistic convention]]. (The X-eyes representing death are also visible to other characters. One character even [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0537.html draws them over a live character's eyes to fake death]].)

One comic also refers tot he trope by using the swirl pattern on its panels to show what's going on in the mind of enchanted characters. * In ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'', when Antimony almost becomes a victim of {{Body Surf}}ing, her pupils turn a flat blue. Loss of consciousness due to a head injury had a similar effect. ** Gamma, too, when she's passing out from exhaustion. This is actually the only time we get to see her eye color at all, which incidentally seems to be hazel.

The protagonists can see it, if they are looking for it. ** And sometimes the "Eye of XANA" flickers a little (which makes it look cooler). However, if XANA needs mind-controlled humans to look normal, their eyes will change back to normal temporarily. This doesn't always happen, though.
