[[caption-width-right:280:[[BewareTheNiceOnes Don't make this angel angry.]]]]

Eyes filled with fire is a very strong image, and is a good way to convey that a character is demonic, possessed by demons, ComicalOverreacting, [[HotBlooded really pissed off]], or is in just a really excited mood.

Don't really expect the fire to [[FauxFlame actually affect things]], unless this crosses over with HeatVision.

This could be the next step after RedEyesTakeWarning, if you don't heed the warning.

Compare GlowingEyes, HellishPupils, WingdingEyes, BurningWithAnger.

Contrast OcularGushers.

Not to be confused [[BattleThemeMusic with]] "[[VideoGame/CaveStory Eyes of Flame]]".

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime ]]

* A frequent visual cue in most anime, often employed by the {{Tsundere}} in a bad mood, or anyone in a towering temper. However, it's also most often used as a brief gag, and more realistic visual cues are used for "serious" anger.
* In ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'', the female customers gets flaming eyes when they're really fired up about something - usually a particularly adorable {{Moe}} moment involving the hosts. It turns into a somewhat bizarre plot-point during the episodes starring Ritsu Kasanoda, a young {{Yakuza}} Boss whose icy glare normally freezes anyone who comes near him. He winds up being SweetOnPollyOliver, causing all the girls to get fired up about the perceived {{Yaoi}} romance, and even when he turns his icy glare on them, their fiery intensity melts it on the spot. "Don't underestimate the flames of MOE!"
* In one episode of ''SgtFrog'', Momoka's pupils turn into flames when she imagines using the next day's outing with Fuyuki as a chance to get close to him, but they turn into tiny rainclouds when Fuyuki mentions it's supposed to rain the next day.
* Rock Lee in ''{{Naruto}}''.
* Chako gets a RousingSpeech in ''CosplayComplex'', and her eyes do this.
* ''Manga/VideoGirlAi'': In episode 3 of the anime, right before Ai spends all of Youta's immediate cash on a crane game.
* Crosses over with {{Playing With Fire}} for Lunatic in ''{{Tiger and Bunny}}'' -- and as Episode 16 confirms, the fire from his eyes can ''literally'' cause injury.
* This is how we know Captain Gundam's [[EleventhHourSuperpower Soul]] [[PowerOfFriendship Drive]] is working in SDGundamForce. [[HotBlooded Bakunetsumaru]] does it once in a hilarious fit of righteous fury, and [[spoiler: Captain, Zero, and Baku do it at the same time at the end of the final battle.]]
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Ryoga's eyes go entirely pink-red and glow with similar-coloured energy to his attack & aura when he's channelling a particularly powerful (or Perfected) [[AngstNuke Shi Shi Hokodan.]] More like GlowingEyesOfDoom, but overlaps with this because it represents the emotion too.
* In one episode of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', Ash unknowingly messes up Jesse's hair with a flame attack, causing her to swear vengenance on him. Meowth and James note that she has fire in her eyes...and then point out that she has fire in her hair too.

[[folder: Fan Fic ]]

* Evil Calvin gets these in ''Fanfic/RetroChill'' after being pounced on by Hobbes.

[[folder: Literature ]]

* In Fiona Patton's {{Branion}} series, the royal family of an alternate Britain has literally fiery eyes, the flames growing brighter as one gets closer to the throne and culminating in the sovereign who is known as the Vessel of the Living Flame, the sacred avatar of a fire god.
* Two examples from the ''PercyJackson'' series. Ares, god of war, has creepy flaming eyes because he's a representation of violence and rage; he normally wears sunglasses to cover them up. Hestia also has flames for eyes, but hers are described as much warmer and less creepy; since she's goddess of the hearth, the literal "home fires," this makes sense.
** We later get a third example when we meet Hyperion, who has eyes like the sun itself. Fitting, since he is Titan of Light itself.
* In the {{Nightside}} series, Merlin [[spoiler: Satanspawn]] has no actual eyeballs, instead having flames in their place. Whenever he appears, John mentions that they say he has his father's eyes...
* Ba'alzamon in ''TheWheelOfTime'' has fire appear in his eyes and mouth at random intervals. A side effect of overuse of [[TheDarkSide the True Power]].
* ''{{Everworld}}'': Hephaistos is described as having literal fire in his eyes.
* ''Discworld/TheWeeFreeMen'', Tiffany runs into grimhounds, which have fiery eyes and razors for teeth. She manages to defeat a group of them by luring them out of the Queen's realm, which leads to [[RealityEnsues exactly what you expect would happen if an animal actually had flaming eyeballs]].
* The fire jinn in ''Literature/FancyApartments'', Tisa, has flaming eyes and hair when she's in jinn mode.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Religion ]]

* [[Literature/TheBible Jesus Christ]] is described in the Book of Revelation as having "eyes like flames of fire".

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* Flonne of ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'' gets ticked off ([[{{Otaku}} or particularly enthusiastic]]), and her eyes turn into fireballs.
* Prier in ''LaPucelleTactics''.

* All the Space Pirates, including the [[AppliedPhlebotinum Phazon]]-mutated Elite Pirates have this in the first ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime''.
** Ridley had this in his first appearance ''Metroid Prime 3''.
* ''VideoGame/CookingMama'' does this in all of her games whenever you fail a task.
* The Burning Eye in ''VideoGame/DarkCastle''.
* Though not seen clearly, Illidan's eyes in ''WorldOfWarcraft'' were burned out and replaced with flames as part of Sargeras' "gift". They are hidden by a blindfold, though the glow can still be seen.
* In ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' all the Prime Evils have this. In the previous games, their eyes glowed but didn't seem to be actual fire.
* The "fired-up" version is seen in a few missions in the ''VideoGame/OsuTatakaeOuendan'' series.

[[folder: Western Animation]]
* In the {{DCAU}}, whenever {{Darkseid}}'s eyes burn, it likely means he is about to use his [[EyeBeams omega effect]].
* Numbuh Three in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' has a tendency to get like this when she gets angry enough.
** Numbuh 86 (a.k.a. - Fanny) as well does this from time to time, [[FieryRedhead which comes as no surprise]]...
* ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 The 2012 Ninja Turtles series]]'' features these from the turtles when they are angry due to [[{{Flanderization}} the series's heavy reliance on anime-esque expressions]]. They mostly come from Raphael
* Ren from RenAndStimpy sometimes gets these when he's really angry.
** Also Anthony's Dad from the episode "A Visit To Anthony" after he believes the duo hurt his son and threatens them, it's actually the fireplace reflected in his glasses.
