* In WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirBender, the malevolent spirit Koh has the ability to steal your face, but only if he looks at you while you express any form of emotion. Aang barely survives his encounter, because Koh was looking away when Aang gets excited by a revelation. Koh desperately turns to face him, but by the time he does, Aang is back to his blank face, and blandly tells him [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "I have to go now."]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', the Fire Nation troops that conquer Omashu restrain master Earthbender King Bumi by keeping him suspended in mid-air in a metal casket. This wasn't enough, since Bumi is able to bend earth as long as he can see it, and the metal casket left his face exposed. When the solar eclipse (during which firebenders are depowered) occurs, Bumi promptly levitates some rocks to free himself and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome singlehandedly takes back Omashu]].

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'', there are several types of attacks that require line of sight between target and caster, called "Gaze Attacks". Interestingly, they do not require literal "eye contact"; when monsters use the attacks on players, they will 99% of the time be facing the player because of the way the hate mechanic works. However, [[MegaManning Blue Mages]] can use the attacks and still face any direction; as long as the monster is looking at YOU, the spell will land.
