Playing it may just be worse then seeing it. Here are examples of EyeScream from video games.

[[quoteright:291:[[VideoGame/DeadSpace2 http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stat_2288.png]]]]
[[caption-width-right:291:Cross my heart and hope to die. Stick a needle in your eye.]]

----
* In ''VideoGame/{{Killzone}}'' 3's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Brutal Melee System" ]]you can do this in two very fun ways: stabbing an opponent in the eye and (somehow) gouging out a Helghast's eyes ''through'' his goggles.
* In ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDuty Call of Duty: Black Ops]]'' during the Baikonur level, after Weaver gets compromised and tied to a chair, Kravchenko stabs him in the eye. He survives, unlike [[spoiler: Shepherd at the end of VideoGame/ModernWarfare 2.]]
* Within the Wii version of ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'''s final battle, Super Sonic damages Dark Gaia by slamming into the beast's giant eyeballs. Before that, in the PS3/Xbox 360 version, he uses repeated homing attacks in its eyes. With a twinkly smile.
* In ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls'', the Maiden in Black has her eyes covered by wax that's melted into her skin, blinding her. It's unclear that if she was born this way [[spoiler: due to her being an incredibly powerful demon]] or if she if the wax was more of a result of her being the keeper of the Nexus. If the latter is the case, it's also unclear if she lost her eyes before coming to the Nexus, she still has her eyes under the wax, or if she lost them due to the waxing.
* In a flashback scene at the end of Saejima's episode in [[VideoGame/RyuGaGotoku Yakuza 4]], we are treated to a very, VERY squicky scene where [[spoiler:a bound Goro Majima refuses to bow down to a low-level yakuza that's in charge of restraining him, and the yakuza drives a foot-long knife into Majima's left eye]].
* In many ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' games there are enemies that can only be killed by hitting their eyes. Lots of them especially in (but not limited to) the 3D games.
** And not just enemies: some games feature switches resembling eyes that are activated by shooting them with arrows.
** It's implied that the Link of ''[[TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' eventually loses an eye - as the Hero's Shade in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'', one eye is dimmed out, and his wolf form has the same eye scarred shut.
* ''[[VideoGame/BanjoKazooie Banjo-Tooie]]'' includes this. They've put a little spin on it by doing it with eyeball plants. They play a game of keep away with a jiggy, and to get the jiggy you have to... [[{{Squick}} pop them open with bee stingers.]] Okay. [[BloodlessCarnage It isn't too violent, given that this is rated E for everyone.]]
* Yuri's unfortunate first encounter with Valantin in VideoGame/InfiniteSpace ends in tragedy as he finds himself with a 5-foot blade in his left eye. He gets better.
* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}: Curse of Darkness'' has an alluded-to near-miss of this. See that scar over Trevor's left eye? Dracula got testy.
** Judgment made him lose the eyeball (thus making HIM look more like a pirate than Faust-VIII-lookalike zombie Grant).
** The cyclops is only vulnerable to headshots. But it's a cyclops, so we know they're actually eyeshots.
** Balore's weak spots are his eyes. Always. And Dawn of Sorrow makes him way less pretty.
* In ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' a Psychopath meets his end when a statue tips over onto him. The statue is holding a real sword. Guess where that sword goes.
* In ''VideoGame/DeadSpace'', the Captain of the ship has gone mad and the doctor declares him unfit for duty. He picks up a needle with a sedative, but the Captain jerks as he tries to get free, and the needle is jammed into his eye.
** In ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2'', this happens twice. Once to [[spoiler:Ellie]] at the hands of [[spoiler:Dr. Stross]] ("[[{{Badass}} You owe me an eye, you bastard!]]"), and once to Isaac if you fail to get the needle in the right place in a minigame near the end of the game. (It's still a nasty case of Eye Scream if you ''do'' get the needle in the right place. You just don't die.) It's made worse by the fact that ''you're in control of it the whole time.'' Both of these are preceded by the rather nightmarish little chant "Cross my heart and hope to die... stick a needle in your eye..."
** ''VideoGame/DeadSpace3'' tops them all; you kill the FinalBoss by throwing things into his eyes. Seems mundane, [[spoiler: but the final boss is a post-Convergence Necromorph the [[GeniusLoci size of a moon]], its eyes are ''several hundred feet wide'', and the things you throw into its eyes are Red Markers about 30 feet tall. Upon impact, the eyes burst open into a tidal wave of blood and fluid. Here, you make the closest thing to an unrelenting, timeless PhysicalGod feel pain]].
* In ''VideoGame/TreasureOfTheRudra'' - shortly into Sion's Scenario [[spoiler: One of the [[CosmicKeystone Jades]] gets lodged right in Sion's Skull via his right eye]]
* In the original ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'''s intro, you see a close up of a crow picking out the eye of a decaying body. While not looking too realistic by today's CGI standards, that was a pretty unpleasant scene at the time of release.
* In ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'', eyes are damageable (and, in some cases, targetable) organs. However, in the current version bugs mean they can't be removed and will rapidly recover ''any'' damage they receive. Still, not fast enough that gouging out something's eyes won't let you kill it at your leisure, or at least massively improve your chances of it. There's a reason why it's one of the two ways to make Wrestling a viable skill.
* Throughout the first three levels of ''VideoGame/{{Eversion}}'', there are gems hidden in Mario-esque floating blocks with happy faces on them. Level 4 lets you know exactly where the game is headed when you are forced to jump into one and [[spoiler:its eyes pop out of its sockets as you instantly evert from SugarBowl World 4-1 to the completely terrifying World 4-5.]]
* In ''VideoGame/{{Fable}}'' on the Xbox, the main character's sister has her eyes cut out by bandits when she refuses to tell them where you are.
** In VideoGame/FableIII, during your first encounter with [[spoiler: the [[EldritchAbomination Crawler]], when you find Walter after his disappearance, he is covered by a dark goo, and his eyes seem to be bleeding said goo. More creepy than {{Squick}}-inducing, though.]]
* In the first two ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' games, aiming for the eyes is not only possible but one of the most effective ways to dispatch enemies. In the later ones you can, at most, target the head, but the fact it just about ''kills'' Perception when a target's head is crippled tends to imply some of this is still going on. Can't shoot someone in the face with a laser/shotgun and not have a bit of that get in their eyes, after all.
* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' [[spoiler: Nergal]], not torn out, GOOGELY EYED TWITCHEYNESS!
* In ''VideoGame/FatalFrame'', one of the items you can find is a mask with large spikes in the eyes. It's revealed that girls are blinded with this device for a horrific [[SealedEvilInACan ritual to close hellgates]]. What's worse is you can try to use the mask yourself, though many never had the courage to find what happen if you press the "Use" button.
** The sequels also have cases of Eye Scream, especially the Needle Women in ''FF 3'' who sewed their own eyes shut.
* In a flashback in VideoGame/FinalFantasyX we see how Auron gets blasted into the face/left eye by [[spoiler: Yunalesca]] when trying to [[spoiler: avenge Jecht´s and Braska´s deaths]] Well, at least he got his [[strike: Eyepatch]] [[CoolShades Sunglasses]] [[EyepatchOfPower of Power]] after that
** During the attack on the Blitz Stadium, you can see that the aeon Anima's Pain ability is based on this. In a surprisingly gory cutscene for the series, blood can be seen coming out of her eye every time she uses it, culminating in a close up of her bleeding eye socket.
* In ''HeavenlySword'', this happens to [[spoiler:King Bohan]] very close to the end of the game, after [[spoiler:the Raven God pecks his eyes out as a punishment for Bohan failing him]].
* From ''VideoGame/{{Mechwarrior}} 4: Vengeance'' "[if they escape] then I shall find the men responsible and feed them their own eyes!"
* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'', Snake's been captured, and Volgin tells the Boss to cut out his eyes. [[spoiler:She doesn't. He loses his eye when Ocelot, doing his Russian-roulette-juggling thing, is about to shoot EVA. Snake tackles him, and the gun goes off right by his eye, damaging it irreparably.]]
** Just so you have the proper context, Naked Snake, [[LateArrivalSpoiler AKA Big Boss]] was well known before this game came out for having only one eye. That makes the above instance ''very'' uncomfortable to watch, as you know he probably won't be getting saved in the very last moment.
** Solidus loses his eye after the Harrier fight in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2''.
** In the prologue chapter of ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'', Raiden's eye is stabbed out during the encounter with Jetstream Sam.
* Subverted in ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Fusion'' with [[ThatOneBoss Nightmare]]; when he increases the gravity, it seems his eyes are bleeding, that is, until the mask pops off and it turns out ''his face is melting''.
** Samus herself gets an Eye Scream in ''Prime 3: Corruption,'' when her face becomes increasingly scarred as the Phazon corruption progresses. By the time you hit 50% corruption or so, not only are her eyes glowing blue, but the pupils have turned [[SicklyGreenGlow radioactive green.]] It's even squickier in the trailer video, when you see the Phazon flowing into her eyes ''from the inside.''
*** The "phazon in your eyes" thing is still in the game. Go into Hyper Mode and let yourself get corrupted. It'll probably be [[NonStandardGameOver the last thing you see]], though.
* In VideoGame/MortalKombatVsDCUniverse one of The Joker's close combat moves is to poke his opponents in the eyes.
* In ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'', Travis Touchdown [[spoiler: blinds Harvey Moiseiwitsch Volodarskii by throwing his beam katana at him, cutting out both of his eyes.]]
** Wich leads to the strangely funny line "It's dark! Somebody turn on the lights! I can't see shit!" Right now, it won't sound funny. But with his accent, it's a whole different story
* Very rarely in the sequel, the Tsubaki Mk III, whoops I mean Carmelia Mk III, will slice an enemies head in half, right about eye level. Least of their worries, but still...
* In ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', The Nameless One has a special equipment slot called 'eyeball'. Its default contents are, well, what you'd expect, and you can replace it by... Well... You can connect the dots yourself. At no fewer than two occasions in the game you can also lose the ''other'' eye for story reasons, the first time by ''tearing out your eyeball by hand and replacing it with an old eyeball a previous incarnation of you had torn out and stored somewhere'' and the second time by having Ignus pluck it out (again, by hand... And this time, said hand is ''on fire'') to use it as a repository for magic you can learn.
** Three times. If you take the right dialogue options with Ravel Puzzlewell, she'll stab you in the eye with a claw and hook it out, then stuff a black-barbed seed in the eyeball and pump it full of magic before giving it back to you. This is one of the many statistic boosting choices in the game.
*** '''Planescape Torment''': The game where having your eyes poked out gives you stat bonuses.
** One time used for humor. One of the sensory stones contains the mind-numbing tedium experienced by a student in what was apparently the most boring lecture of all time. At one point, the student considered jamming his quill into his eye for a change of pace (though if he had actually done it it would have been a completely different sensory experience in the stone).
* Briefly played with in ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}''.
-->'''Den Mother:''' Enough! It is time for me to pluck out your eyes!\\
'''Raz:''' You can't -- ''that'' is the purpose of the goggles!
* In ''VideoGame/SilentHill3'', the hint for the Hard Mode hospital keypad puzzle (GuideDangIt!), is a poem about poking out someone's eye, drinking the blood from the crushed eye, and biting off their tongue and left ear.
* ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy'': After [[spoiler: The Guy goes OneWingedAngel and breaks through the background, his eyes become weak points; shooting them repeatedly causes them to degenerate from black dots into [[{{Squick}} red blotches.]]]]
* VideoGame/{{Waxworks}}: many of the [[{{Gorn}} standard]] deaths involve this. Examples include a spike pit's spike goring you right in the eye, or a plant mutant's seeds pushing your eye out of its socket as they grow inside you.
* In ''VideoGame/ThiefTheDarkProject'' Garrett's eye is ''torn right out of his head''. The empty socket is even shown later on, albeit briefly.
* No-Face in ''VideoGame/TwistedMetal: Black'' got badly beaten in a boxing match. When he went to a back-alley surgeon to get his face put back together, he chose badly; the surgeon had lost $20,000 betting on him, and took out the man's eyes and tongue as revenge while he was out. We get to see his eyes falling onto a tray. Thankfully, in his ending, No-Face gets his revenge - punching the doctor in the face with a needle-loaded boxing glove.
** The trope name describes what Needles Kane does in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFtQJieYgLY this webisode]] ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin quite well]]''.
*** Also, Calypso in his more recent appearances has a missing eye, prominently showing off the gaping hole where it used to be.
* ''VideoGame/TheWhiteChamber''... Hoo, boy. There's an FMV devoted to a decapitated head with its eyes missing, and said eyes open. And you find the eyes in a sealed box. Even with the eyes back in, it's not a pretty sight.
** [[Film/EventHorizon Where we're going, we won't need eyes to see...]]
** Also, there's a console which the player must use to gain access to a room. It requires a color code that's acquired after a certain event, and if the player tries to use the code before they are supposed to, [[spoiler:the aforementioned head appears, scowling and covering the screen, with the words 'not yet' carved into its empty eye sockets.]]
* In the cinematic for "The Gods of Zul'Aman" that came with Patch 2.3 of ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', a High Elven soldier prepares to cut out one of Zul'jin's eyes as a way of adding insult to injury. The action fades to white just as the point of the dagger is a mere centimeter from Zul'jin's eye. [[HealingFactor Being a]] [[AllTrollsAreDifferent troll]] Zul'jin should have been [[HealingFactor able to regenerate]] but it seems this was somehow forgotten.
** [=WoWWiki=] [[http://www.wowwiki.com/Zul%27jin offers some explanations]].
** Also, the icon for one of the Rogue abilities, Cheap Shot, is a knife about to plunge into an eyeball, implying that what is "cheap" is that you're stabbing them in the eyeball.
* In ''VideoGame/YggdraUnion,'' when Milanor is rescuing Yggdra from the prison in which she's held captive by Gulcasa, Valkyrie Aegina cuts his escape. Elena, former assassin of the Bronquian Empire, sneaks behind her troops and fires her crossbow... Hitting Aegina in the eye. Later on, when you meet Aegina again, she's wearing a bandage on her left eye.
** In the backstory, this happened ''three separate times'' to poor Nessiah. First, [[spoiler:his real body was blinded by the gods as part of his punishment for disobeying them and not fighting in Ragnarok]]. Second, his contract with the Yumel required him to sacrifice an eye to get their help in mastering his magic. And finally, he tore his remaining eye out [[spoiler:in order to complete the Gran Centurio]]. (Yes, he ''was'' that desperate at the time. And insane.)
* In ''VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon'', after Jankowski's disappearance in the second level, you will occasionally see a "phantom" image of him...with his eyes gouged out. Whether or not he's actually dead though, is up in the air.
* In ''VideoGame/GrimFandango'' you have to use your scythe against the eye of an octopus, granted, it was protected by a crystal, but the fact that it breaks and shows blood afterwards...
* In ''[[VideoGame/ChzoMythos 7 Days A Skeptic]]'', [[spoiler:Dr. William Taylor has been forced to construct a body for a ghost out of the murdered crew. The ghost possesses the body, but it needs eyes ([[FridgeBrilliance the only intact head Taylor got needed glasses]]), so it takes a pair. [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness From Dr. Taylor.]]]]
* In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', inflicting one of these [[spoiler:on EnfantTerrible Illyasviel]] fully cements [[spoiler:Gilgamesh]]'s status as the BigBad of the ''Unlimited Blade Works'' scenario. Particularly vicious, as he slashed her across the face with a ''sword'', but only so she would be blinded while he continued to torment her.
* One of the artifacts you're supposed to collect in ''VideoGame/{{Bloodrayne}}'' is a demon's eye [[spoiler:which forcibly implants itself upon collecting. From Rayne's reaction to this, it's...not pleasant.]]
* In the ''Nightfall'' campaign for VideoGame/GuildWars, the mad god of secrets Abbadon and his servants have a thing for eyes. His favorite minion begins growing extra eyes on her forehead in imitation of her master, and her favorite threat/curse is "Abbadon will eat your eyes."
* In ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', the locks on doors in dungeon take the from of a demonic-looking face, with a large singular eye and the pupil shaped liked a keyhole. It doesn't react/end well, when Amaterasu brings a key along.
* ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDuty Modern Warfare 2]]'' ends with Soap throwing a combat knife into the BigBad's eye. [[spoiler:The true BigBad of [=MW2=], LTGEN. Shepherd, has left Soap on the ground with a knife almost-hilt-deep in his chest, while Shepherd goes to [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beat Capt. Price into the dirt]]. Soap manages to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome pull the knife]] [[{{Determinator}} out of his own chest]] and throw it with such precision that it impales Shepherd in the skull right through his left eye.]]
** In ''World At War'', at the very beginning of the game, a Japanese officer puts out his cigarette in a captured Marine's eye after he refuses to break under [[ColdBloodedTorture interrogation]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Timeslaughter}}'' has an intro where the man who becomes the final boss has an eye removed with a drill - although that's not too much in such already {{Gorn}}-tastic game.
* ''VideoGame/InTheHunt'' featured a giant living statue as a PuzzleBoss. Your submarine had to make [[FridgeLogic floating blocks of stone]] drop on its head. Once damaged enough, the stone covering the statue's face is destroyed, showing the flesh and bones underneath, and its eyeballs dangle out of their sockets. It doesn't help that he gains an attack where it spits out four homing eyeballs.
* At the beginning of ''VideoGame/OverlordII,'' shortly after the frozen [[CreepyChild Overlad]] arrives in the Netherworld, [[ButtMonkey Quaver]] gets his eye stuck to the ice. And when Gnarl orders that the ice be thawed by fire, Quaver pulls away fast enough to leave the eyeball behind. ''Ouch.''
* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' took the counter kills from the first game and jacked the brutality level up to eleven. Countering with Ezio's hidden blade will occasionally result in both blades being jabbed through a guards eyes. You can't really make out much but really the dark red spurts of blood from both sockets are enough.
** There's also the fact that Mario Auditore ([[CaptainObvious Ezio's uncle]]) is blind in his left eye, with a scar around said eye. The injury itself is only elaborated on in the Facebook spinoff ''Project Legacy''. In one mission (before the events of Assassin's Creed II), Mario was cut in the face by a bladed pendulum, causing his eventual blindness. To make it worse, there is even a picture showing Mario with the newly acquired injury, [[SarcasmMode because we needed to see that]].
** There is also an unique Assassination move done by the Footpad (from the ''Brotherhood'' multiplayer) where said Footpad slashes the target in the eyes with his weapon before stabbing the target in the throat. The move's nickname? "Blinded and Helpless". Quaint.
* ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'' unsurprisingly has a good one. Go ahead and lose the RTS battle with Doviculus (if you dare!) The resulting losing animation quickly switches to Eddie's point of view just as the emperor tells you he is going to make a necklace with your eyes then thrusts his fingers into the screen as it turns to black.
* Done in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' of all places, where [[spoiler:Braig]]'s fight with Terra ends with Terra firing a blast of dark energy right into his eye. [[spoiler:Well, now we know where he got that eyepatch.]]
* Some of the bosses in the VideoGame/{{Kirby}} games have very large and prominent eyes, and some are [[FacelessEye little more than just eyes]], so attacking these bosses invokes this, especially if you [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3T5xQWCn9Y4 do it with]] [[{{BFS}} the Master Sword]]. And then, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VItRIOqako Zero]]. [[spoiler: To elaborate, Zero rips out his own eye in a fountain of blood. In a later game, you fight Zero Two, and dealing damage to his eye results in puffs of more blood.]]
** Also worth noting is that recurring enemy [[FacelessEye Waddle Doo]] DummiedOut "appearance" in ''Kirby's Block Ball'' has its eye blown off in its death animation.
* In VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne, after the world goes kalooey, you wake up, getting a first person view of a kid holding a bug... then he drops the bug, right into your character's eye (and with the first person view, it's like it went into your own eye).
* VideoGame/BaldursGate: Go for the eyes, Boo! GO FOR THE EYES!
** [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Go for the optics, Chikktika, go for the optics!]]
*** Ironically enough, "Chikktika" is a combat drone, and those are shaped roughly like eyes.
* Also, in the ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' {{DLC}} ''Overlord'', when you finally get to the cause of all trouble, [[spoiler:David Archer]], we find him suspended in some kind of harness with probes sticking out of, among other things, his eyes and holding them open. Think [[http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/David_Archer this picture]], only with more focus, lingering, and different angles in the course of the ending cinematic.
** According to Mordin, a [[ExtraEyes batarian]] religion considers this act deeply insulting. Since they believe souls exit through the eyes when the body dies, removing or destroying the eyes is a terrible act of desecration.
*** Which gives some extra chilling factor to Renegade Shepard's payback on a racist batarian bartender who tries to kill him or her with a poisoned drink -- he or she forces the bartender in question to drink his own nasty concoction, and threatens to "blind him one eye at a time" if he doesn't follow through.
* In the ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'' series, Kratos is capable of killing cyclopes by yanking out their eyeballs. But the most epic example of this is when he kills ''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Poseidon]]'' in ''III'' by gouging his eyes before [[NeckSnap breaking his neck]] and throwing him off a cliff. The fact that you see this from [[ShakyPOVCam Poseidon's point of view]] makes this horror and a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
** Kratos tears up Typhon's eye in ''II''.
* At the end of the third episode of ''VideoGame/DukeNukem3D'', Duke kicks the eye right out of the Cycloid Emperor's head.
** This part was recreated in the prologue/video-game-within-a-video-game level of ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'', only in this case the Cycloid Emperor's eyeball was on the ground, but still connected to his head.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Shinobido}}'', Zaji the Blackhawk has only one eye left and wears an eyepatch. [[spoiler: Gamuran took out his other eye during the attack on the Asuka village by throwing a sharp wooden piece at it.]]
* In ''[[VideoGameRobinsonsRequiem Robinson's Requiem]]'', this can potentially happen to the hero: one or both of his eyes can be damaged [[EverythingTryingToKillYou by various hazards]], leaving him partly or completely blind in that eye. Or both.
* The Hunter of ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' has a character design that suggests ''some'' kind of eye damage; his eyes are thickly crusted with blood. The character model has no eyes at all, but it's possible that they just aren't rendered because his [[InTheHood hood]] would obscure them from any in-game camera angle. In Versus mode, you can see fine while playing as him, but this could just be [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality for the player's convenience]].
* The Disco Bandit in ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' has an attack called Disco Eye-Poke.
* A frequent source of [[BlackComedy squicky laughs]] in the ''VideoGame/SamAndMax'' games.
** An EstablishingCharacterMoment in ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxHitTheRoad''':
--->'''Sam''': I've got something in my eye.
--->'''Max''': You should dig it out with a fork. It always works for me.
** In ''Ice Station Santa'':
--->'''Max''': ''Sniffling'' I - [[SandInMyEyes I've got something in my eye]].
--->'''Sam''': Don't play with it, you know how hard it is to get back into the socket.
** In the animated series, the [[TuxedoAndMartini James Bond episode]] involves Max keeping a microchip in his eye socket, which, when retrieving, he digs around for [[OverlyLongGag a disturbingly long time]], accompanied with squelching.
* In ''VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}}'', the iconic GrossUpCloseUp of the rotting corpse involves its yellowed, shriveled eye dropping out of the socket.
* A major plot point in ''VideoGame/{{Amea}}''. [[spoiler:As part of their attempts to escape life's hardships and begin a new, false life, The Master Eye's cult have all ritualistically removed their eyes and replaced them with artificial ones (likely of the Master Eye's own design) that wipes their memories beyond the bare essentials, thus letting them begin a new "life" as the Master Eye's slave. When Amea, who had initially joined the cult due to ParentalAbandonment, learns this, she decides that she's not going to run away anymore and face whatever life throws at her, and shows this by ''ripping out her fake eyes''.]]
* Several characters in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' have {{EyeScream}}y X-Ray attacks, particularly Reptile (who pokes his opponent in the eyes), Kitana (who stabs her opponent in the eyes with her fans), Baraka (who stabs his opponent clean through the head through the eyeball), and Skarlet (who kicks her opponent in the eye with the heel of one of her CombatStilettos).
* Penguin in VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity has been shown with [[http://www.gamekyo.com/Webmasters/Images/8229620110829_110004_1_big.jpg the bottom of a glass bottle over his eye]] in place of a monocle, which according to previews was stabbed there and cannot be removed without killing him. Being the "sophisticated" man he is, though, he's grown rather [[JustForPun attached]] to it.
* Pops up a few times in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', usually with throwing knives. The best one is the conclusion of the [[spoiler:Orsino!Harvester]] battle. Hawke leaps onto the beast and ''stabs it in the eye again and again''. [[spoiler:Then Hawke ''rips out its head'' and ''stomps it to death''.]]
** Zevran gets a CrowningMomentOfAwesome when an Antivan Crow runs at him from behind, sword raised. Barely turning, he flicks [[AscendedMeme Murder Knife]] at the man, who slows to a stop and keels over, revealing the hilt protruding from his left eye.
* One of the dead girls in ''KaraNoShoujo'' had her eyes cut in order to have it with tears of blood in order to mimic something from the DivineComedy.
* In VideoGame/EarthBound, one of the earlier enemies (yes, early in the game), a crow, have their attack read as a peck to the eyes.
* [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Enter MONOCULUS!]]
* One of the endings of AlphaProtocol has [[spoiler:Mike shooting Leland at [[NoRangeLikePointBlankRange point-blank range]] through his eye]]. And it's definitely not one of the game's normal PrettyLittleHeadshots.
* VideoGame/{{Terraria}} has quite a bit of this with {{Faceless Eye}}s. All of them explode into LudicrousGibs when beaten, The Eye of Cthulhu sheds its pupil in favor of a toothy maw when it TurnsRed, and [[DualBoss The Twins]], Retinazer and Spazmatism, shed theirs in favor of a [[FrickinLaserBeams laser cannon]] and a {{Hellfire}}-[[BreathWeapon breathing]] mouth, respectively. At least the last two are partially robotic to lessen the horror.
* In ''Blood Omen: VideoGame/LegacyOfKain'', Nupraptor sews his own eyes and mouth shut during his descent into madness.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Oddworld}}: Abe's Exoddus'', the Mudokon slaves being used to mine the bones of their ancestors for [=SoulStorm=] Brewery are blind - because they've had their ''eyelids stitched shut''.
* Norman Jayden of VideoGame/HeavyRain will start [[TearsofBlood bleeding from the eyes]] if he uses the ARI for too long at a particular point in the game. If the player persists in using the ARI, [[spoiler: he'll eventually start [[DeadlyNosebleed start bleeding from the nose as well]], which is a sign that his time is almost up.]]
* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', one of the finishing moves against dragons involves the [[PlayerCharacter Dovahkiin]] jumping onto the dragon's head and stabbing it in the eye. Possibly FridgeBrilliance since the eyes are sometimes a dragon's AchillesHeel in literature.
** Also, [[http://steamcommunity.com/id/StarSword_C/screenshot/452848015066502352 this accidental arrow headshot.]]
* In ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'', there is a particularly disturbing text passage upon discovering [[spoiler:the Iron Maiden in the Choir.]]
-->'''Excerpt from text:''' [[spoiler:His knee jerked and he felt blood trickle down his leg. In pain his head fell slightly forward. It took him a while to realize his eye had ruptured and begun to leak.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' has a momentary, but haunting example in Peacock's individual storyline. A short flashback from [[spoiler:Patricia]]'s perspective shows us [[spoiler:one of the slave traders who captured her, his thumbs reaching for her eyes. Then, they close in-- suddenly, the screen goes red as a sickening ''squelch'' is heard.]]
* ''VideoGame/TheWitcher2'' features [[spoiler:Phillippa]] getting [[spoiler:her]] eyes gouged out with a ''spoon''. [[{{Squick}} You see the aftereffects]].
** Diminished a bit by the fact that she can grow new eyes as mage though.
* ''VideoGame/FallenLondon'' has sorrow-spiders, which are spiders that bite out the eyeballs of sleeping people. (Or people who're drunk enough to fall over.) They get their name from the tears that flow from the remaining eye. Also a milder example, the Correspondence can [[BrownNote make your eyes bleed if you read it.]]
* ''[[VideoGame/MrNutz Mr. Nutz]]'' has a grimacing giant as one of the more memorable bosses in the game among players. One of his methods of attack is to ooze the eyes of out his head, although new eyes will grow in place of the old ones each time he does it.
* The Creator/{{Valve}} logo from 1998 to 2006 depicted a man with a valve lodged in his eye socket.
* In ''Super VideoGame/StreetFighterII'', take a good look at [[BoisterousBruiser Zangief's]] defeated portrait... What the HELL did your character do to Zangief's left eye?! Whatever it was, it looks horrible.
* During the introductory mission for ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', RobotBuddy Claptrap gets [[CyberCyclops his eye]] ripped out by the game's first boss, a bullymong named Knuckle Dragger, and he tasks you with helping him get it back.
** At some point in the game, Handsome Jack talks to the player about the time a man tried to attack him with a spoon. He then proceeds to laugh about how he then took the spoon and gouged out said man's eyeballs in front of his children.
* This happened in Clark Still's past in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''. His partner and best friend Ralf was practising with some knives, he carelessly threw one around... '''o u c h'''. That's why he has a [[ScarsAreForever scar on the left side of his face.]]
** Rugal Berstein has been on both sides of the trope. In KOF 94 we learn that he not only killed Heidern's family ''and'' squad, he also plucked out one of his eyes. And on the other hand, in KOF 96 it's explained that [[spoiler: Goenitz sliced out Rugal's eye when trying to kill him; impressed that Rugal survived a fatal attack, Goenitz then gave him some of the Orochi power. [[SuperPowerMeltdown Which would later kill him for real]].]]
* In VideoGame/TheWitchsHouse, there is a book you can read called "The Book of Death" that will cause the main character's to scratch her own eyes out.
* In VideoGame/MadFather, there is a puzzle that requires you to retrieve a girl's missing eyes.
* At the beginning of ''VideoGame/BrainDead13'', Lance pokes Fritz's eyes, prompting him to cover them... too bad that he has {{Hook Hand}}s.
** Also, in one death scene, Fritz will approach Lance from behind, poke him in both eyes with his hooks, and proceed to rip him apart vertically, putting new meaning to the words "splitting headache".
* In the ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' series, Xiahou Dun's EyepatchOfPower stems from him getting hit in the eye by an arrow. Unlike King Harold in the Battle of Hastings however, who simply dropped dead, he remained standing, pulled the arrow out and ''ate the lost eyeball''. Not only does this prove that Xiahou Dun is MadeOfIron, but it also provided a defining ([[{{Squick}} if disgusting]]) moment in Dynasty Warriors.
* ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'': Stage 4 of the arcade game features enemies named Ugly Mugs that need to have their eyes knocked out before smacking them in their [[PunnyName ugly mugs]].
* In ''[[VideoGame/{{Pikmin}} Pikmin 3]]'', you can have Pikmin attack Bulborb eyes to render them incapable of attacking.
* In the ''AnimalCrossing'' series, shaking trees sometimes results in a beehive falling out, leading to the pissed-off [[EverythingsWorseWithBees bees]] chasing you. If they catch you, they'll sting your eye, leaving it puffy and swollen. Fortunately it's not permanent. Taking a rest (read: saving and quitting) or using some medicine will fix it.
* ''VideoGame/SeriousSam3BFE'' has Melee Grabs, a type of ActionCommand OneHitKill that generally affects weaker enemies. Performed on a Gnaar, he will grab it, shove his hand into its eye socket, and rip out its single large eyeball, which can then be thrown at other enemies.
* In what may be convergent evolution in gore, ''VideoGame/{{DOOM}}'' GameMod ''Brutal Doom'' has executions, available through use of the [[QuadDamage Berserker Pack]]. The one-eyed Cacodemons can be executed by the Marine reaching into its face and tearing out its eye with his bare hands.
* In ''VideoGame/CrusaderKings II'', characters in the Byzantine culture group can blind prisoners. This inflicts them with a malus to stats and gives their character portraits black, gaping holes in their sockets.
* ''VisualNovel/PartTimeJob'' features a very surprising and bloody one (well, surprising considering it's based on ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'') when Pastel slashes [[spoiler: Fluttershy's]] eyes while being held down.
* In ''[[VideoGame/OfficeJerk Office Zombie]]'', depending on the item, you can hit the Zombie in the eye or knock his right eye out of his skull.
* ''VideoGame/TheLastDoor'' has lots of this.
** In Anthony's manor house [[spoiler: you find a cat trapped in the basement that's had its eyes gouged out by a bird.]]
** At the Catholic hospice [[spoiler: you meet Father Ernest, your old teacher. He's burned his eyes out.]]
** At various points in the game [[spoiler: the Eye of the Bird appears in nightmares, windows, and keyholes, always accompanied by a literal scream.]]
* At one point in Episode 2 of ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead,'' when a zombie is attacking Lee, he gouges out it's eyes with his thumbs while trying to fend it off.
** In ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' Season 2 Episode 3, Carver brutally beats [[spoiler: Kenny with a walkie talkie so badly that Kenny's skull caves in and destroys his eye.]]
