* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}:
** Combined with ExoticEyeDesigns on the sardine-like Wishiwashi to make it look like it's perpetually crying. It DOES start crying once it enters battle and it's Level 20 or higher though, which summons other Wishiwashi to school up with it. Then [[MagikarpPower it gets much more powerful]] and stops crying.
** Tapu Lele will start tearing up in this way in Pokémon Refresh if you touch its antennae.

* 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]].
