* ''Franchise/AceAttorney''
** In the opening cutscene of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'', Athena and [[ExpressiveAccessory Widget]] get swirly eyes after [[EstablishingCharacterMoment Athena trips and falls down a staircase]].
** In the first case of the same game, Juniper Woods' "damage" animation has her pull her pigtails so hard that they snap back and deck her in the eyes, leaving Xs.
** A DummiedOut sprite for the first game shows Phoenix with heart eyes. This was originally used to show his reaction to seeing [[MsFanservice April May]] for the first time in court, but after the script was rewritten so that Phoenix first meets April in an investigation segment, where the player character's sprite isn't visible, the sprite went unused as there was no need for it anymore.
** Still regarding Phoenix, his eyes turn into a large X whenever he sneezes in the first case of ''Trial and Tribulations''.

* In ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', extremely high levels of [[HotBlooded blood heat]] are indicated by spirals in the characters' pupils. Not at all related with confusion, but spirals show up as a symbol of [[strike:determination many times throughout the series]] how EverythingsBetterWithSpinning.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': Nami's eyes occasionally change to the symbol for [[GlobalCurrency Beri]] when there's a potential profit to be made, Sanji's [[PeekABangs eye]][[strike:s]] change to hearts whenever he's swooning over one of the girls, and in one chapter Luffy's eyes changed to takoyaki to show just how much he craved the food. And recently he seems to have expanded to [[TrademarkFavoriteFood meat]] eyes.

* In the ''KingdomHearts'' manga some of the characters will get the X-eyes when they get knocked out. Especially we will see them most on more cartoony characters like Donald Duck, Goofy, Mickey Mouse or Pete. But also the humans for example Sora, Roxas, Olette or Aladdin will get those X-eyes when they get attacked by an enemy or get knocked out.

* Wario's eyes have the dollar signs in the intro to ''VideoGame/WarioWare: Touched!'' after seeing the NintendoDS console features and realising the money he could make from it, and probably some of the other ''[=WarioWare=]'' games in the series.
** Except for ''VideoGame/WarioWare: Snapped'' in which coins are in Wario's eyes rather than the dollar signs, and ''[=WarioWare=]: Smooth Moves'', in which the dollar signs did not appear at all.

Compare GlowingEyes, FireballEyeballs, {{Henohenomoheji}}. If a characters pupils are an odd shape normally, you're dealing with ExoticEyeDesigns. If the eyes change color, that's Kaleidoscope Eyes.

* ''VideoGame/GaiaOnline'' has a series of glasses accessories that have this effect on your avatar. The track-invading YaoiFangirl from the '08 Olympics had a pair with swirlies, if I remember correctly.
** An equally absurd example comes from the later levels of ''[[VideoGame/GaiaOnline zOMG!]]'' There your character is, at the bottom of the ocean looking for the BigBad's lair, when you notice a heap of apparent rocks has an ''eye'' in it. An eye bigger than your avatar. And it ''blinks''. And every time it blinks, ''its pupil changes shape''. And nobody on either the zOMG! forum or the GCD knows what it is, aside from ''weird''.
