* Psycarrot, part of the Root Pack in {{Cuphead}} opens a third eye to attack Cuphead with psychic waves.

* The Tuatara has a third eye on top its head called a parietal eye. It's useless for sight but it has its own lens, cornea, and retina, which suggests that it evolved from a real eye. It is only visible in hatchlings and it gets covered with scales as it ages.
** Many fish and amphibians also have a parietal eye, but it is less well developed than the Tuatara's, and often hard to notice externally. They are mostly used to regulate hormones that are on a day/night cycle.
