* The music video for Robert Miles and Maria Nayler's version of "One & One" does this in four different scenes, with a different person being reflected in Robert's eye each time. The third time it is done, it is actually Robert being reflected in another man's eye, and the second occurrence shows a different person being reflected in Robert's eye, depending on which version you're watching.

* Takua's eyes in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: Mask of Light'' had this, as [[spoiler:he watched his friend Jaller die in his arms]]. The directors on the commentary talked about how tricky this shot was to get right -- they wanted to use tears instead of a reflection at first, but were unsure whether the characters could produce them.

* Used repeatedly with the villains in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', first with General Hux in closeup looking on at [[spoiler:Starkiller Base opening fire at the New Republic, with his eyes reflecting the plasma pouring out of the ground]] and then Kylo Ren looking at essentially anything during the finale ([[Creator/AdamDriver his actor]] has dark eyes that reflect light very well, causing some dramatic shots with [[spoiler:his father inside Starkiller Base as it's being charged again, then afterwards when the lightsabers come out]]).

* This is actually a plot point in ''WesternAnimation/TheLastUnicorn'' (as well as the original book) and the basis of one of the best soliloquies in animation. Unlike normal people, Lady Amalthea's eyes do not reflect light; instead they show a forest view. The author/screenwriter uses this to play on the idea that regular people often simply reflect others rather than dealing with them as people. As Amalthea becomes more human and forgets herself, her eyes begin to show reflection.
* Happens too many times in ''WesternAnimation/WereBackADinosaursStory''.
* In Shane Acker's ''WesternAnimation/{{Nine}}'', [[spoiler:this is how 6's death is shown, reflected in 9's lenses]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNimh'', the Great Owl's huge eyes reflect Mrs. Brisby as he leans to her; a strong effect, as his eyes are almost as large as her entire body.
* The poster for ''Disney/{{Dinosaur}}'' shows a prehistoric landscape being reflected onto a reptilian eye.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'':
** In the prologue, the PillarOfLight caused by Sunset Shimmer (from the first movie) reflects into Adagio's eyes when she catches sight of it.
** In the prequel short "Guitar Centered", when Rainbow Dash see the double-necked guitar, it reflects in her eyes.

* In the climax of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Octi Evil", Blossom and Buttercup, who had been at each other's throats for the entire episode, angrily stare at each other while the camera zooms further into each of their faces, with this kind of shot being the last. When their confrontation is interrupted by Bubbles screaming for help, the sequence repeats again with each wearing a quizzical expression, only now, during the this kind of shot, they smile at each other, showing that they're burying the hatchet for Bubbles' sake.
