* It occurs in ''Film/ThreeAmigos!'' during the duel between Ned Nederlander and that German guy.
* ''Film/{{Psycho}}'': Marion Crane's eyes do this, though in a YouFailBiologyForever moment.
* This happens to Jessica Rabbit in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', in the only scene where you really get a good look at [[PeekABangs both her eyes]] ("Oh my God, it's DIIIIIIP!"). And, indeed, her face looks more childlike (symbolizing her fundamental fear of Dip), and loses its more mature look, [[FridgeBrilliance much like how many other toons have done when faced with an instinctual fear]]. [[spoiler:Judge Doom]] also has this look when he sees the Dip nozzle pointed at him was just turned on.



* Happened in the American version of ''Film/TheRing'' with a very good close up of Rachel's eyes when viewing the cursed tape for the first time.
* In ''Film/MuppetTreasureIsland'', Kermit shrinks his eye irises during a heavy load on Benjamina Gunn at the cliff.
* In ''[[WesternAnimation/HelpImAFish Help, I'm A Fish!]],'' Fly's eyes do this just as [[spoiler: a crab slashes one of its claws at him and slices his side open.]]



* It's an easy to miss moment in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'', but it's done by Elizabeth when she first sees the crew of the Black Pearl [[SkeletonCrew under the moonlight.]]



* This happens to the animated Cruella [=DeVil=] in the video game Roger made in the live action ''Film/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'' movie when a keg of dynamite is thrown at her.

* In the episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' where Roger [[ItMakesSenseInContext tricks Steve into joining a drug manufacturing operation by telling him it's Hogwarts,]] towards the end of the episode Roger gets knocked face first into a pile of some unspecified drug. When he pulls his face out, his pupils first dilated rather large, and he proceeded to disarm and kill every thug attacking him, and shoot a bunch of rounds into the ceiling because we was wired. Then, with one thug left, Roger realizes he has run out of ammo to use against the last armed thug, which causes his eyes to shrink to a pinpoint, and him to touch the TV in the room and call [[RefugeInAudacity "Ah, TV is base!"]]
