* In ''Manga/KotouraSan'', [[{{Telepathy}} Haruka]] [[PowerIncontinence Kotoura]] does this every time she is called and/or [[PokeInTheThirdEye thought of as]] "[[YouMonster a monster]]", which is her {{Trigger}}. The second episode even combines this with WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises, DullEyesOfUnhappiness, and TearsOfFear for a truly horrifying effect.

During times of emotional stress, a character's eyes, or just the reflected highlights in them, will shake perceptibly. The aim is usually to show someone on the verge of tears; as in, their eyes are pricking, or tears are welling, or something difficult to show otherwise. This is not usually a comedy trope, and can in fact mean that things have turned very serious. It may presage a SparklingStreamOfTears if the situation gets worse. It can also indicate extreme happiness or love. When the irises shrink ''and'' shake, it's usually to indicate great shock and/or fear. Pretty hard (but not impossible) to replicate in RealLife. [[SchmuckBait Best not to try, really]].
