You may notice that some cartoon characters don't have to have whites to their eyes. Well, they're certainly not ''white.''

Skintone Sclerae are [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin just that]]: As opposed to the irises being surrounded by white space, a character's skin will apparently go on into the eyeball.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:General]]
* For some reason, Asian characters in western animation tend to be drawn like this despite other (non-Asian) characters having normal eyes.
* Any character who wears EyeGlasses will have this kind of eye if his glasses are removed.
** This is [[ZigZaggedTrope zigzagged]] with Milhouse Van Houten on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. There are some episodes in which Milhouse has dots for eyes when his glasses are removed (making him look like Akbar and/or Jeff from Matt Groening's comic strip series, "Life in Hell") and other episodes (such as season 7's "Radioactive Man" and season 9's ''LordOfTheFlies'' parody "Das Bus") where Milhouse has rounded cartoon eyes with whites around the sclerae.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Many background or ugly/{{gonk}} characters in anime will have this.
* Krillin and Yajirobe of ''Manga/DragonBall'' (them having this is, [[ActorAllusion along with their Japanese voice actors]], in common leads to Goku comparing them when he meets Yajirobe), as well as many of the {{Funny Animal}}s like Puar. Averted in the video games.
* Cilan in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''. Made even weirder by Cilan being the ''only'' main character afflicted with the condition. Even weirder still, his two brothers have regular eye-whites.
** Lenora's husband, Stephan, and a few other background characters in the ''Black and White'' season also have this.
* Everyone in ''Manga/{{Yotsuba}}'' has these except on a few of the earlier volume covers.
** Several ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' characters got changed to this design in the manga remake.
* Nanami Kiryu of ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness although she occasionally has white sclerae during the first arc.]]
* Shichika in ''LightNovel/{{Katanagatari}}'', the only character to have them and considered not at all ugly.
* Some characters in the original ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' have these, notably Bright Noa and Mirai Yashima. (Other characters are drawn with eye whites.) Mirai can start to look odd [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdQUJ2CqttE when she's placed next to characters drawn in other styles]].
* More than one female character in ''Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}'' like Arisu, Princess Ixquic, and the Pu-Awak sisters.
** Subverted with Cain and Von Bogoot, since they seem to have this but they're actually shades.
* Tsubasa Yuuki from ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* The characters from ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'', human and animal alike. Particularly noticeable when they made a "troubled" face.
* In ''Gaspard de la Nuit'', an obscure French comic book series, all characters are drawn like this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* In ''TheRescuers'', the mouse characters have sclerae the same color as their fur, to give the illusion of having the black eyes of real mice without sacrificing the expressiveness of traditional CartoonyEyes. [[ArtEvolution Averted in the sequel]].
* The automobile version of [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Hamm the piggy bank]] seen at the end of ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'', his windshield is colored pink like his paint instead of white like everyone elses.
* [[Film/YellowSubmarine]] plays this straight with the Beatles themselves, except for John, who wears glasses.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Everyone in the ''Literature/MrMen'' series, except Mr. Sneeze. When glasses-wearing characters are seen without their glasses, they count as well; when they are wearing their glasses, they have EyeGlasses.
* In the ''Literature/RainbowMagic'' books, all of the characters have these, but it's most prominent in the movie.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Inversion in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episodes "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E5TheRebelFlesh The Rebel Flesh]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E6TheAlmostPeople The Almost People]]"--the Gangers' skin looks like the white of a human eye.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Cilan of ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' is the ''[[NonStandardCharacterDesign only]]'' human in the ''Pokémon'' franchise to have them, although his very pale skin in official art means it's not immediately apparent. Not even his brothers have it.
** This is appropriate, as he replaced [[EyesAlwaysShut Brock]] in the anime.
** Togepi is born with sclerae that matches its skin. Its evolved forms just have beady black eyes.
** ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' has a few Trainer Classes with this type of eye.
* You can make a [[Creator/{{Nintendo}} Mii]] with this quality.
* This is also one of the eye types you can have in ''AnimalCrossing''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Both WebAnimation/HomestarRunner and Strong Sad have this type of eyes.
* On ''TheFundayPawpetShow'', while watching an episode of "The Dukes" Lisel mentioned that this practice freaked her out.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* This was common on Creator/HannaBarbera shows of the 1960s and '70s. Most of the human characters in the various ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' shows, for instance. No doubt this was motivated by the low budgets of the shows, as not having to paint the eyes saved a bundle on paint.
** Despite having a higher budget, coming after several series that did feature white sclerae, and it not really saving any money with digital coloration in use, ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' returns to the skintone look to make the cast look more like their 1969 selves.
** Recent Scooby-Doo direct-to-DVD movies like ''Legend of the Phantosaur'' and ''Music of the Vampire'' followed the aforementioned show by giving the characters their original designs and giving them skintone sclerae.
** Hanna-Barbera continued this practice into the early 1980s. In the animated series of ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleRascals'', only Buckwheat and Darla had white sclerae.
* The characters in the Disney ''[[Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh Winnie-the-Pooh]]'' films have button eyes, occasionally drawn with eyelids but no sclerae for the sake of an expression. This is justified in the case of the stuffed characters, but the same style was used on Christopher Robin as well, perhaps to match the simple pen-and-ink illustrations of the original books.[[note]]However, he did have white sclerae in the 2011 movie, which turned him into a cute boy of sorts.[[/note]]
* This trope sees plenty of use in TheDCAU, most famously for Franchise/{{Superman}} (except in closeups and in ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'') and [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Billy Batson/Captain Marvel]] (this also applies to non-DCAU production ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold''). It's also used just shy of consistently for Asian characters.
* WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse in his earlier appearances in the ClassicDisneyShorts. Later depictions of him portray him as having normal-looking eyes.
* Almost every character in ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}''. The most notable exceptions were Brittany, Stacy, Jodie, Mr. O'Neill, and Mr. [=DeMartino=].
** Ms. Barch, the [[DoesNotLikeMen man-hating]] divorced science teacher, had skintone sclerae from seasons 1 to 3. When the show's animation changed in seasons 4 and 5, she was redesigned to have whites around her eyes.
* The characters in ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown''.
* Eileen from ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow''.
** Justified as she's a mole.
* Miss Finster from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''.
* Human characters in ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce''.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries''. Most noticeable with Uhura, of course.
* Monique from ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' had these in the [[http://images1.fanpop.com/images/photos/2500000/kim-and-bonnie-kim-possible-2545618-512-384.jpg first season.]] In other seasons she has the same eyes as everyone else.
* Very noticeable in ''MysteriousCitiesOfGold'' with most of the human cast.
