* 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]].

* 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!"]]

* The MasterSwordsman Mathangi Mantra in ''Webcomic/KillSixBillionDemons'' gets these while [[http://killsixbilliondemons.com/comic/wielder-of-names-5-100/ parrying a bullet]]. Rather than fear, it pairs with DissonantSerenity to extremely unnerving effect.

* Used to varying effect in ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator''. In the case of Yandere-chan, they are used a measure of her sanity. The smaller they are, the less sane she is (and the less people will want to do with you). They also slowly shrink when the player gets a GameOver by way of [[SempaiKouhai Senpai]] rejecting her or a teacher expelling her. For everyone else, they appear in the same fashion when they see something bad happen (either you killing someone or happening across a corpse). If they see you commit a murder, but you get away with it, their irises remain shrunken as a way of saying that they know you killed someone and they're going to damage your reputation continuously by spreading the word of your crime around the school.
