->''At the same time, the thrones are big many-eyed orb-like things. That have flashy lights. So God rides a chariot made entirely out of multi-eyed flashing orb creatures that are actually angels. I can't help but feel that God would totally win a low-rider contest.''
--> -- ''[[http://www.bookofratings.com/angels.html The Book of Ratings]]'', "Angelic Orders, Part I"

Most people only have two eyes. This is generally considered a good thing -- it's part of bilateral symmetry, those elements of nature that make sure you only have two arms and two legs. However, if somebody has ''three or more'' eyes, well... you want to avoid those people. Sometimes they're harmless but freaky, other times they're actively evil, and occasionally they [[ThirdEye represent spiritual enlightenment]]. Sometimes opening a "third eye" shows a level of PsychicPowers, but sometimes a creature will have many eyes so it can ''freak you the fuck out''.

Having some ExtraEyes can become Nightmare Fuel if done right or NightmareRetardant if done with SpecialEffectsFailure (although if done wrong, it can still be freaky).

Contrast EyelessFace, where it's the ''lack'' of eyes that's freaky, or {{Cyclops}}, for a creature with a single eye. A SisterTrope to EyesDoNotBelongThere, as the extra eyes have to go somewhere, and not always the usual places. Supertrope to ThirdEye. Also compare and contrast ExtraDigits, which is a subtle and not immediately noticeable physical deformity.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' has quite a few.
** Unit-02 has four eyes, two per side. It's worth noting that the green eye-orbs on the sides of the Eva's head are artificial; the Eva's real eyes are on the front of the face, behind a shutter-like apparatus. [[spoiler:The Eva permanently loses its upper right eye at the end of Rebuild 2.0 and has a cybernetic replacement in 3.0.]]
** The Rebuild series gave us a number of Evas with an unusual distribution of eyes:
*** [[spoiler:Unit-01 gains a ThirdEye on the forehead when it enters its [[HeroicRROD pseudo-evolved form]].]]
*** Mari's Unit-08 has eight green eyes in a vaguely five-pointed-star formation.
*** The Mark.09 is initially a CyberCyclops of the same head design as Unit-00 but [[spoiler:gets decapitated while breaking Shinji out of WILLE's custody. During the finale, it grows a new head that has two rows of red eyes: six in the top row and four in the bottom row for a total of ten eyes]].
*** [[spoiler:[[EvilCounterpart Unit-13]] has four eyes that change coloration depending on the pilots' status: yellow during normal operation, red when Shinji takes exclusive control and Kaworu's death causes the lower pair to fade out. Unlike Unit-01, Unit-13 does not gain an extra eye during pseudo-evolution.]]
*** Not really an Eva but [[spoiler:the [[CoolAirship Wunder]]'s bridge is a hollow head of the same design as the Mark.09's new head, with nine eyes in the top row and seven in the bottom row for a total of sixteen eyes]].
** Lilith's design in the original series had a purple mask with seven eyes. [[spoiler:The Mark.06's face without its helmet has the same design but in the Eva's case, the eyes appear to be real.]]
* Hiei of ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', especially in his demon form, which has eyes sprouting all over his body.
** [[WebVideo/YuYuHakushoAbridged Yusuke lampshades how being covered in eyes is a bad idea.]]
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'':
** Tenshinhan has three eyes.
** A more alien example would be Guldo of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Ginyu Force]].
* Garyu of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'', who has four eyes. Also, [[RobotGirl Sein]], who has a third eye built into her right index finger, so that she can see where she is going when she [[IntangibleMan passes through solid objects]].
* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has a monster called Thousand-Eyes Restrict. It has, well, a thousand eyes, each of which has tremendous hypnotizing potential. Yami must blind all of them simultaneously if he's to have any chance of winning. And he does, of course. By using a combination of Kuriboh and the Magic Card Multiply. Who says that little fluff ball's useless?
* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' has a good example of it with Yubel which is justified by her being a (In Japan hermaphroditic) demon at the time. In the flashback when she was human she had 2 eyes.
* ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' also has the Hundred Eye Dragon, which is easy enough to describe.
** Infernity Death Dragon also has a ludicrous number of eyes, but at least they're all on its ''head''.
* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' has Raid Raptors - Rise Falcon, a mechanical falcon with six red eyes that light up ominously on its head.
* In ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'', Alucard's {{hellhound}} familiar/transformation is basically an amorphous dog-like mass of eyes and shadows. Alucard himself also has a number of eyes that appear on his body sometimes when he is released.
* The long running {{manga}} series ''Manga/SazanEyes'' [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin revolves around this trope]].
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Envy's true form has extra ''everything'', but the creepiest are the many, many eyes which can be found, among other places, on his tongue and gums, and ''in the corners of his eyes'', like frogs' eggs.
** Also Pride and Father's true forms...
* Kishin Asura, the BigBad of ''Manga/SoulEater'', has black hair patterned with white to look like eyes, has a third eye on his forehead, and [[RuleOfCool has another pair of eyes where his pupils should be.]]
** He also has eye markings on the back of his hands, and on the skin scarves that cover his head sometimes.
* Wisely from ''Manga/DGrayMan'' has five eyes; the three on his forehead can read minds.
* Zommari Le Roux, Espada #7 of ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' fame, has many extra eyes in his [[OneWingedAngel power-up form]]. Initially, it's stated(by his opponent) that he only has fifty, but after guarding against the attack said opponent was using on him, he reveals a couple more eyes hidden in slits in his forehead.
** And on the subject of ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', there's his boss, Aizen. The final forms that he changed into as the Hougyouku [[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours ascended him]] had lots of eyes.
* ''Manga/{{MAR}}'''s Chimera has multiple eyes hidden under her PeekABangs.
* Some aliens in ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' are four-eyed humanoids. Most notably Dan Brad in the "Rug-ball" story arc, the captain of the rival team. He proves to be a WorthyOpponent in the end.
* In ''Anime/HareGuu'', [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Guu-many_eyes_2782.jpg Guu]] sports these once or twice.
* In ''Anime/DigimonTamers'', all of the Digimon Gods/Sovereigns have four eyes. Xuanwumon/[[DubNameChange Ebonwumon]] pulls this off by having [[MultipleHeadCase two heads]]. There's also Beelzebumon from that season (and from ''[[Anime/DigimonXrosWars Xros Wars]]''), who has three eyes. ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' introduces us to Duskmon, the [[spoiler:corrupted]] Human Spirit of Darkness, who has ''nine'' eyes (only two are on his face), and Sefirotmon/[[DubNameChange Sakkakumon]], who is basically made of eyes.
* The Abh from ''LightNovel/CrestOfTheStars'' have this as one of their more overlooked differences from non-modified humans. All (genetic) Abh have a diamond shaped compound eye in the middle of their foreheads. Most of the time on screen it is covered by some sort of head gear which is used to connect to computer systems as part of their UnusualUserInterface.
* In ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', Rachnera the [[SpiderPeople arachne]] has three sets of eyes on her face.
* The Jorou Kumo (a shapeshifting giant spider) of ''Manga/NekoMusumeMichikusaNikki'' has six eyes in human form: two in the human-standard position, and four eyeballs forming an arc across the top of her head.
* In ''Manga/GetterRobo Armageddon'', Invaders can have eyes anywhere. A common sign that an organism has been infected by them is the appearance of eyes and claws in strange places, like peeping out of a head wound.
* ''Manga/SgtFrog'':
** Gyororo, with a total count of 7! And... [[EyeBeams they also shoot lasers]]... for some reason...
** Nevula (Alisa's "Daddy") can open multiple eyes at random but usually just looks at the world through one.

* Eye-ful Ethel, an Earth native rejected from the ''ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHeroes''.
* In Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} storyline ''Comicbook/ManyHappyReturns'', [[EldritchAbomination The Fatalist]] has a row of eyes running from his forehead to the nape of his neck.
* The demon lord Trigon of Creator/DCComics fame and many of his servants sport an extra pair of eyes. (So does his daughter Raven from the Teen Titans, when she is really really angry, possessed or whatnot.)
* Eye-boy from ''Comicbook/WolverineAndTheXMen'' has a body completely covered in eyes.
* Abelard Snazz, the man with [[MyBrainIsBig the two-storey brain]], from Creator/AlanMoore's ''Comic/TwoThousandAD'' strip, has two sets of eyes to go with his double-decker dome.
* The alien Natives of ''ComicBook/{{Copperhead}}'' have five eyes set in a symmetric cluster on their foreheads.

[[folder:Fan Works]]

* Although never directly stated in the script, this is the logical conclusion that can be drawn from [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Commander Killemall]] being described as having red eyes and black eyes in the same sentence in Fanfic/TwilightSparklesAwesomeAdventure.
* The D-Nightmare from the ''FanFic/TamersForeverSeries'' is absolutely ''covered'' in eyes, further enhancing its EldritchAbomination status.
* [[KnightTemplar Nightmare Mirror]], minor antagonist from the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'', has extra eyes on ''her wings''. Lots of them.


[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Gallaxhar, the BigBad in ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens'' has four eyes. By contrast, all of the monsters (save the [[{{Cyclops}} one-eyed]] B.O.B.) have the usual two.
* Many of the monsters in ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc.'' have multiple eyes. One even has extra eyes applied before going to work.
** Squishy from the prequel has five eyes.
* Jumba from ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' also has four eyes.
* The [[spoiler: Green Death]] from ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' has six eyes, three on each side.
* Cobra Commander in ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeTheMovie'', as the result of an experiment gone horribly wrong. Oddly enough, as he was turning into a snake ("I wassss oncccce a man!"), his extra eyes gradually disappeared, and when he was restored to a humanoid state in the [=DiC=]-produced "Operation: Dragonfire", he retained only his original two eyes.
* Captain Flint in the ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'' prologue has six eyes.

[[folder:Films -- Live Action]]
* Sammael in the first ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' film has three eyes on his face, one on the left side and two on the right.
* Taking a cue from ''Literature/TheBible'', the Angel of Death from ''Film/HellboyIITheGoldenArmy'', had multiple eyes in her wings... and [[EyelessFace none on her face]].
* One of the two aliens in the stinger of ''Film/StepsTroddenBlack'' is a crab like creature with four eyes.
* Nearly all of the native Pandoran animals in ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' have four eyes.
* In ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}'', the Maitlands try altering their features to scare the new tenants away - Adam stretches his face out by the nose, plunks two fingers into his eye sockets, and ends up with an eyeball on the tip of all five fingers.
* The [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail Black Beast of Aaaaaaargh]] has a pretty large number of eyes.
* The Controllers from ''Film/MoscowCassiopeia'' have eight. Apparently, the actors playing them were really uncomfortable during filming, as the glasses that quadrupled each of their eyes quadrupled all of their vision as well.

* Triclops and Trioculus (the so-called "Emperor's son") from the ''Star Wars: Jedi Prince'' series.
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': Blind Io doesn't have any eyes on his face, but rather they float around him and he can send them out to spy on anyone he likes.
** Being inspired by Odin, Blind Io was also originally accompanied by a pair of ravens... but he had to get rid of them because they occasionally snacked on his floating eyes.
** Twoflower was accidentally portrayed as having four eyes on the cover of ''The Colour of Magic'' when artist Josh Kirby took the book's description of Twoflower's glasses a bit too literally.
* In the ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' series, Andalites have four eyes -- two in the regular spot on their faces, and two eye stalks that can rotate around for 360-degree vision.
* Several examples from the Franchise/CthulhuMythos:
** The barrel-shaped Elder Things in the story ''At the Mountains of Madness'' has 5 eyes on stalks.
** Yog-Sothoth is sometimes depicted as having many eyes on stalks.
*** When depicted at all, he's normally described as a cluster of iridescent globes akin to soap-bubbles, except several miles wide. His half-human sons did have several, though -- Wilbur had two extra on his pelvis, and the other one had lots and lots in all sorts of odd places.
*** [[TheUnspeakableVaultOfDoom Don't call me soap! *ZAP!*]]
* [[Literature/FafhrdAndTheGrayMouser Nigauble of the Seven Eyes]] had seven (okay, sometimes only six) glowing eyes.
* Chun the Unavoidable from ''The Dying Earth''.
** Does wearing them stitched to his cape ''count''?
* In Keith Laumer's ''Literature/{{Retief}}'' stories, the somewhat insectile Groaci have five eyes on stalks. Retief once whistled in admiration at the dexterity with which two Groaci each looked in several directions at once.
* This troper once read a short story where a young woman is going to a remote party with her boyfriend while listening to him retelling his dream of three-eyed HumanAliens. She finally gets fed up and offers to show him something interesting and lifts up her long hair, revealing a third eye.
* The Elabrej from ''Literature/StarTrekKlingonEmpire'' have eyes all over. Actually, given their initial confusion regarding the Klingon eye, it's more like they're covered with light-sensing organs that are equivalent to eyes.
* In Creator/RobertSilverberg's ''Literature/MajipoorSeries'', the Liimen, one of the several races found on Majipoor, generally working at menial jobs, have three eyes.
* In Creator/StephenKing's short story "I Am the Doorway," a former astronaut discovers eyes growing from his fingertips. The eyes are being used by an alien entity to reconnoiter Earth.
* In ''The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast'', Miss Aranea Money Spider takes a long time putting on her eye makeup, because she has eight eyes.
* Seen in several alien species in the ''Literature/PerryRhodan'' universe. This is usually little more than descriptive detail, but becomes a plot point in one issue during the "Second Empire" arc when disguised human agents on a hostile planet give themselves away and get captured because the locals literally have two extra eyes in the backs of their heads while the agents, despite their masks, can still only see in one direction. (The first to inadvertantly tip an alien off does so simply by ''turning around to address him''.)

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/TheDickVanDykeShow'': "It May Look Like A Walnut," they do a science fiction episode as AllJustADream where people live on walnuts and water (which they call "air") and grow eyes in the back of their heads after watching a scary movie.
** Wiki/TheOtherWiki's description of it is awesome: "Under the influence of science fiction, Rob fears that a walnut will steal his imagination and his thumbs. Danny Thomas guest-stars." Somebody must have been [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs tripping]].
* ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' TOS episode "Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up". At the end, one of the characters proves that he's an alien by taking off his cap and revealing the third eye in the middle of his forehead.
* Noranti in ''Series/{{Farscape}}''. Also, the mantis-like green alien from the same show (was it called a Hanji?) which had multiple removable eyes with special properties. ''Farscape I'' am sure has more examples of this than God.
* One of the critters on a Discovery Channel program about hypothetical alien lifeforms had four eyes: one pair for vision on the always-dark side of its planet, the other pair for use on its ever-lit side. The creature was a predator that hunted along the equator, from a planet where one pole points directly at its sun.
* The original pilot movie for ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}}'' featured a trio of singers with four eyes and two mouths each, using really terrifying special effects.
* Shuten/Retinax of ''Series/HyakujuuSentaiGaoranger''/''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'', has eyes all over his body.
** Of course, there's classic, recurring ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' MonsterOfTheWeek Eye Guy, whose body was covered with eyes, and who could split into a mass of flying eyes and reform when damaged. (The main eye, the giant one in his face, is his weak spot.)
* In the CBBC series ''Me and My Monsters'' Fiend has literally got eyes in the back of his head including a red one on a stalk on the top of his head. Which MakesSenseInContext as he usually acts as a Lookout and the boss while Haggis and Norman do EVERYTHING...
* In ''Series/DoctorWho'' (Classic series only) Silurians have a third eye on the top of their heads, which gives them psychic powers.

[[folder: Music & Music Videos]]
* A great deal of Tool's music videos are a fan of this.

* Many of the aliens in ''Pinball/BigBangBar'' either have extra eyes or [[{{Cyclops}} just one.]]

[[folder: Religion/Mythology]]
* This trope is OlderThanFeudalism with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argus_Panoptes Argos Panoptes]], or Argos All-eyes, a giant in Greek mythology who had four eyes (or two faces) in early versions of his myth, and 100 eyes all over his body in later stories. It is said that he was the one who killed Echidna, the monster who gave birth to nearly every other monster in Greek mythology.
* Descriptions of Angels in ''Literature/TheBible'' portray them as having multiple eyes, wings, and heads (and many combinations thereof). Since most of these are in either the symbol-heavy apocalyptic genre (Revelations) or the prophetic visions (Ezekiel), they are probably not meant to be taken literally.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'':
** Beholders. One large central eye, and ten smaller ones on eyestalks. With a busload of subspecies and related creatures, even more in the ''TabletopGame/{{Spelljammer}}'' setting. And in most it's [[EyeBeams far from a decorative feature]].
** Also, the Gibbering Mouther, a monster that's essentially a gelatinous mass covered with eyes and constantly jabbering mouths.
*** It was also the form of Moander, [[OddJobGods god of decay]]. Except it was a pile of rotting stuff swarming with stalks-tentacles ending with eyes, mouths and whole bodies it absorbed. Double [[{{Squick}} Yuk]].
** The Umber Hulk (think a hybrid of a stag beetle and a gorilla) has four eyes, two of which can cause confusion in an observer. The 1st Edition ''Monster Manual'' artwork actually played this off well, portraying the creature in such a way that the viewer's attention repeatedly moves from its insectile outer pair of eyes to its human-like inner pair, switching back and forth in a vain attempt to "meet its gaze". Confusion, indeed, much like an optical illusion.
** The ''Book of Vile Darkness'' contains a spell that blocks a corridor by summoning a shifting wall of eyeballs. Not only is it hard to get through but anyone who gets too close will be sucked in and turned liquid, his eyes added to the wall.
** In 3.5th edition, there exists a group of magic 'items' called grafts. These are generally organic things which can be pernamently added to a character's body to give some bonus or new ability. There's a whole slew of eye-based grafts, courtesy of Beholder Cultists.
* Providing further evidence that there's a ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' [[TropeOverdosed entry in everything]], there's Givrillian in ''Soul Drinker'', who grows a number of extra eyes from a facial scar.
** All {{mutants}} in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' have potential to grow eyes or [[EyelessFace lose eyes]], especially [[BodyHorror Chaos Spawn]].
*** Of particular note are the Navis Nobilite, who are a sanctioned noble caste of stable mutants whose forehead-mounted third eye allows them to see, understand and navigate (well duh) [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace the Warp]]. Its other properties are unclear, but it's been stated by at least one author that looking into it will send normal men mad, and others that it's an outright OneHitKill.
* Seraphim and their {{Evil Counterpart}}s Balseraphs, from the table-top RPG ''TabletopGame/InNomine'', appear as six-eyed winged serpents in their true forms.

* ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'', for all its crazy-looking characters, doesn't have many examples to offer. There is Kalmah, the [[EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods squid]]-[[AnimalMotifs inspired]] Barraki warlord, who has a third eye on his forehead. Though he can't use it, as Pridak blinded it by ''[[EyeScream stabbing it to the point of not working anymore]]'' in a dispute.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'' tools lend themselves so well to this that almost any depiction of creatures for a CosmeticAward will have three eyes.
* The Vortigaunts from the ''VideoGame/HalfLife'' series have one big eye and five smaller ones, [[ArtEvolution or three smaller ones in]] [[VideoGame/HalfLife2 the sequel.]]
* Opera and Ernest in ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory'' both have three eyes, though the third eye isn't all that noticeable. Both are quite nice people and come from a planet, Tetragenes, where everyone has three eyes.
* The Pfhor in the ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' series have three eyes.
* Wizeman from the ''VideoGame/NightsIntoDreams'' series has six eyes, one on each floating hand.
* [[BigBad Saddler]] of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', in addition to the massive [[CombatTentacles Combat Tentacle]] he has (ahem) "[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar down there]]", has a huge third eyeball hidden inside his mouth. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...
* The [[OurZombiesAreDifferent J'avo]] from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' look and act human, save for the bleeding extra eyes that burst through the skin on their forehead. It gets a hell of a lot ''worse'' when you shoot their limbs and they start sprouting [[BodyHorror bug limbs to replace them]]...
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** Batarians have four eyes; one pair of two above the other. They have a hard time reading facial expressions on the two-eyed faces of most species, as they're used to reading four eyes. For their part, two-eyed species often have trouble deciding which eyes to focus on.
** Protheans/[[spoiler:Collectors]] also have four eyes, but they have two eyes on each side of their head, forming a horizontal line of four. Their eyes appear to be able to move independently of one another. A Prothean who'd been in [[HumanPopsicle suspended animation]] for a ''very'' long time asks "How do you see with only two eyes?"
** The yahg, a pre-spaceflight race of apex predators from the planet Parnack, have ''eight'' eyes.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'':
** [[BrilliantButLazy Yukari]] [[RealityWarper Yakumo]] can open dimensional gaps which are typically full of eyes.
** In ''Subterranean Animism'', three of the characters have a third eye on their chest. Two of them ([[SpeciesSurname Satori]] and [[StrongerSibling Koishi]] [[MindOverManners Komeiji]]) have theirs on their [[{{Squick}} external]] [[EyesDoNotBelongThere hearts]] and have psychic powers because of it. Satori plays the trope straight, as her eye is open and allows her to read thoughts. Koishi subverts it, as she permanently CLOSED her eye, because AMindIsATerribleThingToRead and [[ForgotAboutTheMindReader reading it]] [[BlessedWithSuck makes people hate you]], in the process shutting down her own feelings and thoughts, but this in turn allows her to manipulate people's subconscious. The third one, Utsuho [[ILoveNuclearPower Reiuji]], has a massive eye à la [[LordOfTheRings Sauron]] in her chest, but it seems to be either decorative or a reactor.
* In ''VideoGame/TheGuardianLegend'', the late-game bosses Eyegore and Grimgrin are floating, pulsating masses of flesh and eyes. Also, the bosses of Corridors 17 and 7 are clusters of 4 large and 8 small eyes that shoot eyeballs at you.
* Most of the Chimeran creatures from the ''VideoGame/{{Resistance}}'' games have extra eyes. The Hybrids, for example, have six.
-->"Remember; two eyes goods, six eyes bad!"
* Octeyes, the second boss of ''VideoGame/AlteredBeast'', is almost nothing ''but'' eyes, and it can launch masses of them at its enemies as projectiles.
* Subverted with Q-Bee in the ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' series. The two eyes on top of her head are in fact her only eyes. The ones in the "normal" place on her face are fakes. That's why she always has her head bowed.
* Boobus Tuber, an enemy in ''VideoGame/CommanderKeen'', has multiple eyes. This is fitting, since he's a potato.
* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' has a Third Eye option for faces, as well as one option with what appears to be four alien eyes on each side of the face.
* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', C'Thun is an [[EldritchAbomination Old God]] who is primarily eye-themed.
* To continue the Creator/DCComics' connection from above, ''VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline'' also has Trigon and his minions. The Teen Titans each play their part in one version of the story.
* The [[{{Mooks}} Tyhrranoids]] of ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal'' have varying numbers of eyes [[EyeOnAStalk on tall stalks]] as their main features. The number of eyes denotes how strong they are. While some of them have [[{{Main/Cyclops}} one]] or two eyes (who appear as CannonFodder and mech/saucer pilots, respectively), three-eyed 'Noids are tough ground troops, and four-eyed 'Noids are even ''[[DemonicSpiders tougher]]'' and are implied to be field commanders. Finally, there's the [[KingMook Big Momma Tyhrranoid]], who has ''nine'' eyes.
* Orendi from ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' has [[MultiArmedAndDangerous four arms]] with [[EyesDoNotBelongThere an eye in the palm of each hand]]. Including the two she has on her face, she has in total six eyes.
* In DarkSouls1, the [[http://darksouls.wikidot.com/channeler Channeler]] enemy has six eyes across three rows.
* There are a few Franchise/{{Pokemon}} with additional hidden eyes where you might not have expected them to be:
** Tyranitar's chestplate vaguely resembles Pupitar's face. Where the eyes would be appears to simply be holes in the chestplate, at least until Tyranitar undergoes Mega Evolution, upon which the eyes open up down there.
** Subverted with Meowstic, Pokémon based on the Scottish Fold breed of housecats. Meowstic's ears are normally folded, but they can open up to reveal what appears to be more eyes, but the truth may be even freakier in that they are actually extra ''brains''.
** Taken UpToEleven with Stakataka: It resembles a crude brick building, and every single brick it's made of has a glowing blue eye of its own. Most of them are merely facing inward, though more of them will turn around to face out whenever it attacks.


[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Done outstandingly in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary''. While having multiple eyes is not a medical concern for Sergeant Schlock's species, the epic chain of events that leads to him acquiring them reaches a quite unnerving climax in the emotional confusion of [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20050925.html this strip]].
** [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20060306.html All sorts]] of [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20060323.html fun things]] [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20060325.html happen]] [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20061108.html to]] [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20070319.html these eyes]] [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20071110.html before]] [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20071207.html the]] [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20070819.html status quo]] [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20080222.html returns]]. And no, this is not StatusQuoIsGod - the acquisition of the two extra eyes and the losses of the same in two separate incidents are ''all'' associated with climactic awesomeness.
* In ''Webcomic/HaruSari'' a race of people named Thestalians have four eyes.
* In ''Webcomic/BallAndChain'', the character Dahlia has an extra eye on her back.
* In ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'', Coyote has many eyes scattered all over his body. Like the rest of him, they are rather stylised.
** Lindsey, the giant sea-scorpion-thing who supervises the Year 9 girls' dorm, has 47 eyes, and 15 not-eyes.
* The [[http://bobadventures.comicgenesis.com/d/20081007.html P.E.P.S.I. monster]] in ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' has five.
* The ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'' side feature ''Webcomic/SuperStupor'' has a villain named "Eye-Sore" ... who [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust04222008.shtml used to be a hero]] named "Eye-Score" ... who, as the name suggests, has twenty eyes.
* ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' has [[http://www.missmab.com/Cast/matilda.php Matilda]], who has a third eye on her forehead, and [[http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Abel_12.php Cindy]], who was born with an eye on the palm of her hand because her father was exposed to too much magic. Both are friendly types.
* The title character in ''Webcomic/ZebraGirl'' [[http://zebragirl.keenspot.com/d/20000804.html has three eyes.]]
* ''[[Webcomic/DummComics Frog Raccoon Strawberry]]'''s friend Marissa is of an alien race which has seven eyes, two big ones on either side of her nose and five smaller ones that she hides rather well.
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', the Bloodgrem, The Omega Goo, and Sirleck all have more than two eyes. In the case of the Bloodgrem and Sirleck these make them look like spider-like while The Omega Goo's eyes are placed randomly as are its mouths.
* The Carduchians in ''Webcomic/TheLydianOption'' have a set of tarantula-like eyes - including one partially blinded by Hudson in his first day in the prison.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', Roxy Lalonde keeps a small herd of mutant cats that have an extra pair of eyes in their forehead.
** Much earlier, there is Vodka Mutini ([[IHaveManyNames or just Mutie, or Meowgon Spengler]]), a similar four-eyed kitten.
