* A rare unintentional example. The [[SuperMarioBros Daisy]] trophy in ''SuperSmashBrosMelee'' has a third eye ''in the back of its head''. You're able to zoom in close enough behind the hair to see it. Later revisions of ''Melee'' removed the eye, but it's still [[NauseaFuel kinda creepy]] to realize it was there in the first place, especially if you weren't aware of it, beforehand.

* The ''ComicBook/{{Muties}}'' story "Third Eye Blind" is about a drug-addicted mutant whose mutation includes a third eye in the center of her forehead. Her drug abuse keeps the eye closed for most of the story, but when it finally opens, it causes other people to go temporarily blind.

* The Tuatara has a third eye on top its head call 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.

* Some characters in ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' who possess the so-called Devil Gene, such as Jin Kazama (in his [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Devil Jin form]]) and Kazuya Mishima (best seen in ''Tekken 7'' opening cinematics), can grow a third eye under certain circumstances, and this third eye augments their fighting powers (mostly by shooting [[FrikkinLaserBeams laser]] with it).

Added DiffLines:
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', pureblood Garleans (one of the primary antagonist factions) have one, though it doesn't seem to have any specific powers (in fact, Garleans specifically can't use any magic at all). Since they tend to wear helmets, only a few of them can be seen. Even those who have defected and work with the players usually hide the eye with headgear.

This is an OlderThanPrint trope that goes at least back to the [[UsefulNotes/{{Hinduism}} Hindu]] [[Myth/HinduMythology Puranas]], and shows up in various other religions as well. The Third Eye takes the eye's symbolism UpToEleven, representing supernatural and mystical perception, possibly even [[EnlightenmentSuperpowers spiritual enlightenment.]] As such it's not necessarily biological, characters might make a [[PowerGlows glowing]] eye [[PowerTattoo tattoo]] appear on their forehead when using their [[ISenseADisturbanceInTheForce magical perception]] abilities such as AuraVision and BlindfoldedVision.
