* 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.
