** Common in 4[[superscript:th]] edition races.

* Downplayed by ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' elves: they have very large, shiny irises, which comes across as disconcertingly alien to observers.

* ''MetroidPrime 3'' has Samus, in her highest state of [[AppliedPhlebotinum Phazon]] corruption. You can see her clear bluish-white eyes reflected faintly in the scan visor, complete with non-glowing TronLines running down her face.
** ''MetroidFusion'' also has the SA-X's completely white eyes. You only get a very quick close-up to see this when the player first sees the SA-X.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'': Several aliens are drawn with entirely red eyes, like the Saiyan Great Apes, Burter, and Cooler's final transformation. Broly is also notable for always being drawn with BlankWhiteEyes as a Legendary Super Saiyan, emphasizing his {{Berserker}} status.

* Due to the art style, many characters from ''DragonballZ'' have this trait, though not all of them. The characters who do have colored irises often look odd. For instance, it sends the ArtificialHuman characters straight into the UncannyValley.
** And then, there are the [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys Great Apes]] and Burter from the Ginyu Force. They have solid red eyes.
*** Don't forget Kooler's 5th form, which has glowing red eyes.

* The elves of Creator/MichaelStackpole's novel ''Fortress Draconis'' and its sequels have Monochromatic Eyes, usually in metallic colors, as juveniles. Since elves are immortal, they gain adulthood status (and regular eyes) through a ceremony, and the inability of a group of elves to do this because their island is in enemy hands is a plot point.
* ''Literature/TheBrokenSword'' by Creator/PoulAnderson downplays this: though elves' eyes have pupils, they're "hard to see" and the eyes glow dim blue.



* The kithkin ([[{{Expy}} basically]] {{hobbits}}) from ''MagicTheGathering'''s bright fairytale world Lorwyn have normal eyes, but when Lorwyn is transformed into the dark and gloomy Shadowmoor, their eyes grow huge and glow faintly gold, with no pupils. It symbolizes the change of their nature from slightly superstitious rustic folk with empathic powers to paranoid castle-dwellers with a full-blown hive mind.
* Elves commonly have this to make them more then just pointy eared long-lived human knock-offs. See, ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''VideoGame/WarCraft''. Not always though.

** "The Broken Sword" by Creator/PoulAnderson. His elves had eyes that glowed a dim blue and pupils that were there but "hard to see."
** The elves in ''RuneQuest'' have monochrome eyes. They're actually humanoid plants.
** The ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' elves have shiny solidly colored eyes, due to their alien nature. Ironically, this is the same as the eladrin above.
** Blood Elves have [[GlowingEyes solid green eyes]], but there is a distinction between iris and white if you zoom in enough.
* Among [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons metallic dragons]], apparently it's common for the eyes to change as they age until the pupil is invisible and the eye is eventually one solid color. The pattern goes: Silver for silver dragons, gold for gold dragons, green for bronze dragons, aqua or teal for copper dragons, and a sort of off-gold for brass dragons. Chromatic dragons don't seem to share this trait.
** Red dragons do gain glowing red-orange, pupilless eyes when they get old enough. They are the only chromatic type to develop monochrome eyes.
* Goliath, Deva and Tiefling from 4th edition are shown as having single colour eyes.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has this with the Draenei and Night Elf races, both known for their supernatural awareness, and, more recently, Death Knight characters, who're simply infused with raw magic, albeit a nasty variety.
** Draenei, a very holy race, have blue glowing eyes. Night elves normally have silver or bluish glowing eyes. Night elves with druidic potential have glowing eyes have "amber" eyes... which are more like yellow or gold glowing eyes. High elves have light blue glowing eyes and blood elves, an off-shoot of high elves, are basically the exact same as high elves except they have green eyes, which reflects their addiction to demonic or arcane magic.

*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone'', Paul's eyes turn fully golden when he uses his power/magic sight. He was stuck with them that way for a few chapters until Cirelle helped him gain control over them. Also, the wizard Shaamforouz has golden orbs for eyes.

* A few characters from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''. The Regional Fairies start off with MilkyWhiteEyes; upon [[{{Metamorphosis}} becoming human]], they get pupil-less grey eyes. Ysengrin has beady green eyes, and Reynardine, when assuming wolf-form, has beady yellow eyes.
** Actually, the fairies turned humans do have pupils, [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=976 they're just only visible in extreme close-ups.]]
