** In the OAV, when Seras Victoria's eyes shift from blue to red (often [[GlowingEyesOfDoom glowing]]), expect bodies to hit the floor in numerous pieces. The first [[Anime/{{Hellsing}} Hellsing anime]] had Victoria's eyes change from blue to red permanently when she first became a vampire.

** Impa is a GoodIsNotNice example in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', where she is a strong and intimidating {{Ninja}} with crimson eyes who is devoted to protecting Zelda's life. It's significant that, by the time of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' when she and the rest of her Sheikah tribe are depicted as having largely abandoned their martial ways and settled down as humble village folk, the red eyes have disappeared.

* The Music/PutinP series features the {{Vocaloid}} Rin as its main character, whose eyes turn red when she reverts to Red Rin, a dangerous and {{Yandere}} part of her programming. Camui Gackpo, contrary to his official design, also sports these, and attempts to kill Rin in his introduction. Len remarks on it during their showdown.

** Shadowmere in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' and ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim.'' The most badass CoolHorse in the game. Astrid, who gives you Shadowmere, never really tells you what the horse actually ''is,'' but Shadowmere is tougher and heals faster than all other horses, and is also extremely aggressive, and will happily take on ''dragons.''
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsArena'' this is ''definitely'' part of Jagar Tharn's Evil Sorcerer-style, though in-universe the red eyes only marks him as suspect to racists (it marks him as having Dunmer somewhere recent in his ancestry).
** The Dunmer themselves zigzag this. Individual dark elves can be as good or as evil as anyone else, but according to legend their coloring, including the red eyes, was a punishment by the Daedric Prince Azura for the Tribunal's betrayal of Nerevar.

** Shadowmere in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' The [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmer (Dark Elves)]] play with this trope. They do have bright red eyes, and ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim.'' The most badass CoolHorse in the game. Astrid, who gives you Shadowmere, never really tells you what the horse actually ''is,'' they are typically dour and cynical as a race, but Shadowmere is tougher and heals faster they are no more prone to outright villainy than all any other horses, and is also extremely aggressive, and will happily take on ''dragons.''

** The backstory to ''Drakengard'''s spin-off series, ''VideoGame/NieR'', has another example of this trope in the form of the aptly named Red-Eye Disease, a potential byproduct of what happened at the infamous Ending E of the first ''Drakengard''. People with Red-Eye Disease suddenly gained red eyes, became mindless, and attacked everything without warning; the disease spread so far that it threatened to wipe out humanity. [[spoiler:It culminated in a last ditch attempt to save the human race by separating the bodies of everyone from their souls until the disease was eradicated, in a process known as Project Gestalt. Unfortunately, by the time you find out about this process, [[MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds you've already done enough to ruin the project altogether and doom humanity to extinction.]]]]
** This trope appears [[RunningGag again]] in ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'': Machines that have red eyes are hostile and will attack you when they see you. [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience Conversely, machines that have green eyes are completely pacifistic and will never attack you ever, and machines with yellow eyes won't attack you unless you're the one that initiates the fight.]] [[spoiler:If an ''android'' is seen with red eyes, it's a telltale sign that they've been infected with [[TheCorruption the Logic Virus]] which causes them to attack everything relentlessly in a fashion disturbingly similar to Red-Eye Disease.]] [[EpilepticTrees All of these cases together leads a lot of]] ''VideoGame/{{Drakengard}}'' [[EpilepticTrees fans trying to figure out the connection between the cases of this trope in the series.]]

** Tifa Lockhart has blood red eyes... and she's the most affectionate and enduring character in the game so the whole "evil part" of this trope is lost on her. Really her eyes are red just to contrast to her love interest Cloud's [[IcyBlueEyes Mako infused blue eyes]]. Tifa's eyes are only red in the original, all her later portrayals give her less striking brown/black eyes.

* Voldemort in the first Harry Potter film, staying true to the original story. Later films were much less accurate, giving him blue eyes for no real reason.
