[[caption-width-right:332:Now this is getting silly...]]

Authors seem to like giving characters funny-colored eyes. [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair Hair too]]. Often the colors are pretty much never found in life. Common ones include [[SupernaturalGoldEyes gold]], [[RedEyesTakeWarning red]], {{purple| eyes}}, [[ProphetEyes pale silver]], mixed, and various other brilliant shades you're unlikely to see on anyone not wearing colored contacts and in [[KaleidoscopeEyes some cases]] not even then.

CommonEyeColors have their own stereotypes.

This doesn't count for series that give strangely-coloured eyes to everyone and never bring it up. The eyes have to be special, in-story and out.

Although unrealistic, this is done (along with hair of unnatural colors) to help differentiate characters from each other.

'''Subtropes include:'''
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* KaleidoscopeEyes, which actually ''change'' color.
* PurpleEyes, likewise.
* UhOhEyes
** BlackEyesOfCrazy
** BlackEyesOfEvil
** GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath
** GlowingEyesOfDoom
** HellishPupils
** HiddenEyes
** MindControlEyes
** RedEyesTakeWarning
** SupernaturalGoldEyes, straddles the line between technicolor and "found in real life", although it is common in a lot of species of animals.
** YellowEyesOfSneakiness

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Nia in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has aquamarine eyes and, for bonus points, pink cross-shaped pupils. [[spoiler:She's also not human.]]
* ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'''s Yue is described as having "purplish silver" eyes in the manga. They're actually ''reflective'', referencing his status as [[spoiler:a moon spirit.]]
* ''SamuraiSeven'' 's Ukyo has violet eyes.
* ''TowerOfGod'': With all kinds of different races and species hanging around, this tends be seen everywhere. Four rather important characters (Baam, Rachel, Yu Han Sung, Lero Ro) have gold eyes, Prince has PurpleEyes, Yuri, Quant, Hwa Ryun, Novik, Quant and Rak have red eyes and so forth.
* In ''EurekaSeven'', both Eureka ([[spoiler:Corallian]]) and Anemone ([[spoiler:altered human]]) have purple/pink irises. Eureka's also contain a circle parallel to the iris, while Anemone's eyes each have a single straight line etched across them.
** When Anemone starts to rebel and they go to that freakish factory-hospital where they're trying to get more [[spoiler:artificial Corallians]], ''all'' the girls have that line, and in one scene we see some of them being pumped full of drugs in a clearly painful and cruel test (that, incidentally, [[spoiler:kills them]]); during the test, the lines stretch apart and eventually snap into circles. So whatever they're for, they're relevant.
** And NightmareFuel.
* Miyu from ''VampirePrincessMiyu'' originally has dark brown eyes, which turn golden when she becomes a vampire ''and'' the Guardian. She can still "disguise" her irises by turning them back to their original brown color.
* The Claymores in ''{{Claymore}}'' have silver eyes that turn gold when they start to use their powers.
* Almost every cursed member of the Sohma family in ''FruitsBasket'' has odd-coloured eyes that correspond with the zodiac animal they are. (Except some of them just have odd-coloured eyes. For example, Yuki is [[spoiler:the rat]], but he has purple eyes.)
** In the manga, Yuki actually has gray eyes.
* Performing a [[FusionDance Unison]] in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' includes a change in the eye color of a mage. Doing it with either Reinforce gives one [[MonochromaticEyes solid blue eyes]]. [[PlayingWithFire Agito]], on the other hand, can grant {{red eyes| take warning}} (in the case of Zest), or purple eyes with faded pupils (in the case of [[spoiler:Signum]]).
* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', those using the eponymous power have one eye marked with a glowing red, bird-like sigil, while the rest of the iris gains a red tint. The creators have said that this is simply a visual cue for the audience, though it's implied Geass Users can see the symbol in each others' eyes.
** Even without the Geass sigil, almost all named characters of the Britannian royal family seem to have some variation of purple or pink irises. Notable exceptions are Clovis (blue eyes) and Guinevere (green eyes).
* Christopher Shouldered from ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}!'' is a somewhat unusual example: his eyes a perfectly normal pale blue, but are also so severely and permanently bloodshot that everything apart from the iris seems [[RedEyesTakeWarning blood red]].
* All mist people in ''KemonoNoSoujaErin'' apparently have emerald-green eyes and hair; it is a dominant genetic trait that makes both them and their descendants easy to identify.
* [[Manga/RurouniKenshin Kenshin]] has purple eyes that go golden when in [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Battousai Mode]].
* Hokuto from the series ''ShikabaneHime'' has a pink iris and black pupil in one eye, and a black iris and pink pupil in the other. She's as bat-shit crazy as you may think.
* Lenalee from ''DGrayMan'' has purple eyes in the anime, the Noah have golden eyes, and Allen's CursedWithAwesome left eye turns black with neon red spirals inside when he senses Akuma.
* A lot of characters in ''Anime/KiddyGirlAnd'' have oddly colored eyes, but they get outmatched by Letuchaia and Pauki, who have eyes with a very clear horizontal split, with the lower halves ''also'' consisting of differently-colored internal half-rings. Geacht'er has a slightly less conspicuous version of this, for some reason.
* For the most part, ''Manga/BlackCat'' sticks to regular and stylized shades of perfectly normal hair colors. Eye colors, however, are all over the spectrum. In particular, Train's gold eyes are [[AnimalMotifs symbolic]], and one of Sven's orange and green eyes can see a couple minutes into the future.
* The ''WanderingSon'' anime is full of this. gold eyes for Takatsuki and several other characters, red eyes for Yuki, black eyes for a few characters, violet eyes for Anna, and various other colors. The manga doesn't fit this trope for the most part, however raven haired characters almost always have black eyes as of recent volumes.
* ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'': Sakura has [[GreenEyes jade eyes]], Syaoran has BrownEyes, Fai has sapphire eyes, Kurogane has [[RedEyesTakeWarning ruby eyes]], and Makona has [[EyesAlwaysShut no eyes]] (usually).
* ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' stays within the natural hair color range, but it's got violet-eyed characters (Russia, Canada and Austria, for starters) red-eyed characters (Prussia and Romania) and Asian characters with gold eyes.
** As of 2012, Prussia has been getting colored with half-pink, half-blue eyes [[http://www.hetarchive.net/images/plog-content/images/scans/comic-birz-extras/2012-05_piccolo-cover.jpg]]. Originally, this was only a feature of his [[GenderFlip Nyotalia counterpart]][[http://i51.tinypic.com/w0ro7m.jpg]].
* The [[TheGrimReaper Grim Reapers]] of ''Manga/BlackButler'' are identified by their distinctive eye color, as well as being near-sighted. Their eyes are [[GreenEyes green]] with a vibrant chartreuse ring on the outside.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* {{Superman}} is occasionally described as having eyes an unnaturally bright shade of blue, resulting in him wearing slightly tinted glasses to disguise this as Clark Kent.
* ComicBook/{{Gambit}} has [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] with black scleras, and is a mutant. [[FridgeLogic Fortunately, most mundanes don't notice it]].
** {{Storm}} has blue eyes, along with white hair despite being African. Explained as a link to some similarly colored [[WitchSpecies sorceresses]] in her family tree.
* Tempest of TheDCU has purple eyes; this eventually turned out to be the mark of a potential mage.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''FanFic/ASmallCrime'': Siv has orange eyes, while Kit has yellow eyes.
* Once transformed into native species, several kaiju from Franchise/{{Godzilla}} and ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePony:FriendshipIsMagic'' crossover, ''Fanfic/TheBridge'', have these eyes. Mothra has a dual neon-blue and green iris, Godzilla has yellow to red eyes; and Xenilla has red to yellow eyes.
* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' and ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' crossover, [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Fanfic/TheAdventuresofDoctorWhooves The Adventures of Doctor Whooves]], the 12th Doctor's eyes are perfectly gold.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* [[TheLegendOfDrizzt Drizzt Do'Urden]] quite possibly originated the use of purple eyes for a [[MarySue Sue]] / [[MartyStu Stu]]. His are lavender, even when viewed through infravision. [[HollywoodScience Of course, in real life, this would mean his eyes are a very strange temperature indeed. Even if the color range didn't correspond to heat scopes today, it would mean that his irises are of a markedly different temperature than the rest of his body]].
** When he uses infravision, his eyes stay lavender instead of glowing red (as per usual). His eyeballs are probably normal temperature.
** Drizzt is also a dark elf, and drow elves' most common eye color is red, with the occasional orange or gold. At the time of Drizzt's creation, purple eyes were highly unusual. As of 3rd Edition, they are described as having purple as a distinct possibility.
*** This is probably a TakeThat against all of the characters with Violet-Eyed SpecialSnowflakeSyndrome.
** Violet eyes can actually exist in RealLife. They're rare, and happen when blue eyes aren't quite blue enough so some of the red shows through. This basically means that they are really just a somewhat-off shade of blue, though. Any pictures of actual purple eyes are either digitally manipulated or made with contact lenses, they're not really distinguishable from normal blue eyes unless you look ''really'' closely.
* MercedesLackey's [[HeraldsOfValdemar Vanyel]] has silver eyes.
** Also of note is [[HeraldsOfValdemar Firesong k'Treva]] who also has silver eyes [[spoiler:and is Vanyel's descendant]].
* Perrin Aybara of ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' acquires gold eyes. Justified, however, by his close connection with wolves, for which SupernaturalGoldEyes are common. Also somewhat a case of WindowsOfTheSoul.
* Thomas Harris for some reason didn't think [[TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]] was spooky enough, so gave him [[RedEyesTakeWarning maroon eyes]].
* Edward Cullen and his family from the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' series are all vampires, and their eyes will actually change color depending on how long it's been since they've had blood. Black if it's been a while, and gold if they've just hunted.
** Nomadic vampires in ''Twilight'' have dark burgundy/[[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], because they drink human blood.
* In the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, Ysanne Isard has one red eye - almost always described as "molten" (the other is blue, and almost always described as icy). Teneniel Djo's eyes are bronze. [[TheThrawnTrilogy Grand Admiral Thrawn]] has glowing [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], and TimothyZahn insists on mentioning them every time he appears. But then, he normally appears around Imperial officers, who generally are very uneasy around aliens in general, supremacist gits that they are; and he's ''never'' a point of view character, only ever seen from the point of view of people around him; and while he was alive his species (who so far universally have glowing red eyes) was unknown in the greater galaxy. And that's not counting the characters with prosthetics, of course.
** And Leonia Tavira has purple eyes.
* Leland Gaunt, the main villain of Creator/StephenKing's novel ''NeedfulThings'', can change the color of his eyes: they always appear as the exact shade that the observer finds most attractive.
* [[{{Corum}} Prince Corum Jhaelen Irsei]], one of the incarnations of the [[CosmicPlaything Eternal Champion]] from the fantasy novels by MichaelMoorcock. Corum's race, the long-lived Vadhagh, have eyes described as "large almond eyes with yellow centers and purple surrounds". When Corum got angry, his iris would change to "burning gold" and the pupil to black.
* The "blue in blue" eyes of the Fremen of Arrakis in ''{{Dune}}'', though these are common to all Melange users who consume enough of the Spice.
* Alanna of TamoraPierce's ''Literature/SongOfTheLioness'' quartet has purple eyes. So does her cat. So does her twin brother.
** Pierce later admitted that Alanna is her most blatantly [[MarySue Sueish]] protagonist.
** [[JustifiedTrope It's not unusual]] for siblings to have the same eye color, and the cat is sent by the goddess specifically to guide and protect Alanna.
** Liam Ironarm the Shang Dragon, one of Alanna's lovers, has [[KaleidoscopeEyes magical Mood Ring-esque]] eyes.
* The wizard Raistlin Majere from ''{{Dragonlance}}'' had golden eyes with hourglass-shaped pupils as part of a curse put on him; he was forced to see time as it affected all things, so all living things would wither and die and turn to dust in his eyes, even rocks and buildings would slowly erode and crumble if he looked at them long enough. No wonder he became rather gloomy.
* Flauvic of Sherwood Smith's ''Literature/CrownDuel'' has gold eyes.
* Willo Davis Roberts' ''Girl With The Silver Eyes'' has PsychicPowers, due to a drug her mother was exposed to during the pregnancy.
* The alien children in ''Literature/TheMidwichCuckoos'' (filmed as ''Village of the Damned'') have golden eyes. In the film, [[GlowingEyesOfDoom their eyes glow]] when they use their psychic abilities.
* Demonic vice cop Zhu Irzh from the ''Detective Inspector Chen'' series of novels has gold eyes.
** Inari, Chen's partially demonic wife, has red sclera and black pupils.
** One of friends has yellow eyes when in natural lighting, but under florescent lights they turn gold. (and she wasn't wearing contacts).
* [[Literature/{{Gormenghast}} Titus, seventy-seventh Earl of Groan]], has violet eyes. Notably, this example predates the others on this page by at least two decades.
* Ysandre de la Courcel in Jacqueline Carey's ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'' books is a violet-eyed blonde. Her daughter Alais inherits the eyes but not the hair.
* Kvothe of TheNameOfTheWind has green eyes, but the precise shade varies with his mood; one character realises how scared he is when they notice that his eyes have paled. Curiously, [[TheFairFolk Bast]] has similar eyes, but in blue.
* Door, from Neil Gaimans ''Literature/{{Neverwhere}}'' has eyes that don't seem to have fixed color -- they are described as being like fire opals.
* While not technically unrealistic, in Franchise/TheDarkTower series, Roland's eyes are described by some characters as appearing "impossibly blue", to the point of being almost transparent it seems.
* In ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', the [[ProudWarriorRace Alethi]] and closely related peoples are split into castes based on eye color. The "darkeyes" (commoners) have mostly ordinary eye colors, but the "lighteyed" aristocrats can have a much wider range, from ordinary colors like blue or green to more unusual ones like gold or violet.
* Invoked in ''Literature/{{Daemon}}'', where Loki/Gragg wears special contact lenses to access the darknet, which has the side effect of giving him weird eye colours.
* Literature/TheDresdenFiles gives us the White Court of vampires, who can become uber-strong and heal almost any injury by drawing on their "Hunger." When this happens, the eyes of the demon inside them will start to show, turning eyes first silver and then pure white as the Hunger takes control. (This also happens when they feed, or when they're Hungry, or any other time the demon takes some control.)
* There are several flavours of TechnicolorEyes in ''Literature/SeptimusHeap'', including GreenEyes for Wizards, blue eyes for Witches and PurpleEyes for Queens and Princesses.
* A villain described throughout the second SwordOfTruth book is stated to have pale blue eyes with dark violet flecks (her identity isn't revealed until close to the end of the book).
* Creator/EdgarRiceBurroughs was fond of this trope. Both John Carter and Tarzan have eyes usually described as "steel-grey," though grey is at least a ''possible'' eye color.
* In ''Literature/TheInfernalDevices'', Jem Carstair's eyes, [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow like his hair]], are silver.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The title character from the 1-season series [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075532/ Lucan]] had eyes that glowed red when he was using his "wolf powers".
* In ''Series/{{Helix}},'' Doctor [[spoiler:Hiroshi Hatake]] hides {{glowing|eyes}} silver irises behind brown-tinted contacts, suggesting ProfessorGuineaPig hobbyism apart from the unregulated viral research Arctic Biosystems is conducting.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Role Playing Games]]
* In ''{{Exalted}}'', the Sidereal Exalted gain this as part of their exaltation, with flecks of color corresponding to their caste appearing in their eyes.
* If you're a fanfiction writer with MarySue issues trying to defend the odd eye color of your Sue spawn with her sparkling technicolor eyes as ''legal'', look no further than DungeonsAndDragons! The [[TabletopGames tabletop roleplaying game]] offers enough races with oddly colored eyes to fill a Monster Manual just with them, especially in 3rd edition. Basically, ''any'' color you can think of, even metallic gold and silver, can be yours, just pick the right fantasy race: goblinoids, [[OurDragonsAreDifferent half-dragons]], various [[OurElvesAreBetter elven subraces]] like sea elves, moon elves, gold elves and the [[AlwaysChaoticEvil evil]] [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch drow]] elves, the [[OurMonstersAreDifferent planetouched races]] descended from angels, demons or elemental creatures, the list if endless. Throw shapeshifters into the mix, and you can even justify KaleidoscopeEyes that change color according to the MarySue's mood, such as the Changeling race from ''{{Eberron}}'' (humanoid descendants of human/doppelganger mating who are able to modify their outward appearance at a whim and change internal organs sufficiently that they can functionally change their gender)! [[KaleidoscopeEyes Mood-ring eyes]] are always a favorite with Sues.
** Metallic dragons are born with eyes the colour of their metal that slowly go molten as they age
** And ever since 4th edition the Eladrin have been a mainstream core race, a group of elves better than those other elves who are so fine tuned and connected to the feywilds and magic that they can teleport and they come complete with eyes that come in solid gem stonish colours.
* MaidRPG: lovely colour such as transparent and rainbow are available. And not just as ''eye'' colours.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Meta Knight from the ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' series has yellow eyes, but only [[spoiler:when seen through his mask; when it falls off, his face is [[TheReveal revealed]] to be similar to Kirby's, with white eyes]]. In the [[KirbyOfTheStars anime adaption]], they [[KaleidoscopeEyes change depending on his mood]].
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', the Al Bhed tribe all have green eyes with a spiral pattern on them.
** ... [[FridgeLogic which must make their vision somewhat interesting, given that the spiral pupil wouldn't let light in in a regular fashion]].
*** Wankable. It may just be that the iris has a darker colour spiral pattern on it and the pupil is the regular shape. This would still fall under this trope though, as heterochromia doesn't normally work that way.
* Princess Rozalin from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'' has [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] like most other demons, but deviates in that her ''pupils'' are white. According to Yukimaru, it's a trait that usually pops up in members of the Snow Clan.
** Sapphire Rhodonite from the [[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice third game]] takes the cake, though: neon green eyes with white ''star-shaped'' pupils.
** Almaz starts with normal blue eyes, but because he's slowly turning into a demon, they're starting to turn red. As a result, his eyes are a [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100806223653/disgaea/en/images/8/85/D3_Almaz_Cut-In.jpg blue-red gradient]] for the most of the game.
* The G-man, of ''VideoGame/HalfLife'', looks like he has GreenEyes, but if one looks closely enough you can see that they are actually part yellow, part blue and in his appearance in ''VideoGame/HalfLife2: Episode One'', they're much brighter. In [[VideoGame/HalfLife1 the first game]], however, they're just blue.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'' averts this trope. Everyone in the game has realistic eyes, save for [[PurpleEyes Maya Amano]] but all of them are rare colors.
** ''{{VideoGame/Persona 3}}'' ''Portable'' has the female protagonist, who, in contrast to the sharp blue eyes of the male protagonist, has ''really'' [[http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110509052205/megamitensei/images/c/cb/Minako_close_up.png vivid]] [[http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140223022525/megamitensei/images/4/4e/P3P_Female_Protagonist_Render.png red eyes]].
* In the ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' [[GameMod mod]] ''VideoGame/{{Nehrim}}'' the [[OurElvesAreBetter Aeterna]] race are distinguishable by their technicolor eyes, with colors including [[SupernaturalGoldEyes gold]], [[PurpleEyes purple]], and turquoise.
* Most ''PuyoPuyo'' characters have standard eyes despite having all sorts of unnatural hair colors, although a few have technicolor eyes. Satan has [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], Sig has heterochromia with one eye being red, and Oshare Bones has one eye with a pink iris and yellow sclera whereas his other eye is a [[GlowingEyelightsofUndeath glowing undead pupil]].
* Meilin Chen from ''VideoGame/RustyHearts'' has stars in her eyes.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* The protagonist's eyes in ''VisualNovel/DraKoi'' are purple and the dragon's are turquoise. They glow when she's being particularly dragon-y.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* Strong Bad and Stinkoman from ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' have green eyes. Coach Z's eyes are completely white, one of Bubs' is blue, Marzipan has pink eyes, and Senor Cardgage also has green eyes.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* Otherworlders of ''Webcomic/{{Miamaska}}'' are recognized by their [[http://miamaska.tidalcomics.com/index.php?strip_id=24 red and purple eyes]].
* Quentyn of TalesOfTheQuestor has eyes that are a startling shade of blue, Nessie has violet eyes, Sam the halfling has bright green ones... In fact, it's a general rule of thumb that the more important a character is, the more prominent or vivid the eye color....
* The Wisecracker from the webcomic of the same name inspired by "City of Heroes" has purple eyes.
* {...}/Galahad/Hanna's partner in HannaIsNotABoysName has glowing orange eyes. Literally glowing. Though that could be because he's a zombie.
** Additionally, all the vampires have red eyes, except for Adelaide, the only female, who has hot pink eyes.
* ''GenderSwapped'' has Eddy, he has pink eyes. No, not the diasease [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink_eye pink eye,]] his eyes are literally pink.
* A race in GoldCoinComics have purple eyes, characters in Berserk mode have [[http://www.goldcoincomics.com/?id=130 red eyes]].
* [[WordOfGod Sort-of confirmed]] that the ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' kids' text colors matched their eye colors blue for John and [[spoiler:Jane]], red for Dave, purple for Rose, green for Jade and [[spoiler:Jake]], orange for [[spoiler:Dirk]], and pink for [[spoiler:Roxy]]), the same way the trolls' text colors mostly matched their [[AlienBlood blood]] color, which would have colored their eyes in adulthood. This can mean anything from rust red through orange and yellow, every shade of green and blue, through to purple and maroon.
** We already saw what this looks like on [[spoiler:Calliope and Caliborn]] even though [[spoiler:they aren't Trolls.]]
** Dead characters have [[GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath entirely white eyes, no pupil and no iris]].
** Terezi's eyes are entirely red due to being [[spoiler:blinded by the sun.]]
** Sollux, being as Gemini-themed as a single character can get, has eyes a'la 3D glasses: one entirely red and one entirely blue. The colours can even [[KaleidoscopeEyes switch back and forth]], until Eridan blinds him via magic/science and they turn solid black. After he [[spoiler:half-dies]], he has one all-white eyeball while the other is still solid black, and things "look 2D."
** Prospitians and Dersites have black and white eyes, respectively.
** Lord English has rapidly flashing ''pool balls'' for eyes.
* In ''MoonCrest24'', Lucy has these, not in regard to her actual eye color but her heat signature vision - that being black (coldest), orange (warm), and white (hottest).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* In the WhateleyUniverse, distinctive eye colors are explicitly common among mutants; something in the process of their powers starting to kick in causes their eye color to change, and pretty often the end result is something considered rare in the normal human population.
* [[http://wanderers-library.wikidot.com/the-woman-in-the-mountain The Woman in the Mountain]] from TheWanderersLibrary has eyes with the coloration reversed. The pupils are white, with black irises and green sclera.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''JimmyTwoShoes'': While Jimmy is usually portrayed with generic black eyes, "The Masked Jackhammer" reveals that he has dark orange irises with even darker pupils.
* Any of Butch Hartman's works (''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents, WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom, WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy''), to the point that characters with brown eyes are very rare.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Real Life]]
* A rare example is a medical condition called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heterochromia heterochromia]]. It comes in two flavors: '''Complete''' (each eye is a totally different color; see also Christopher Walken, Dan Aykroyd, [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Yuna]]) and '''Sectoral''' (one or both eyes have off-colored sections; see also Kate Bosworth, Logan Lerman and Simon Pegg).
** Central Heterochromia is a variant of Sectoral whereby the iris forms two distinct rings of different colours, Creator/CatherineTate has this.
*** It's [[Film/XMenFirstClass a very groovy mutation]].
* People with gray eyes frequently have amber flecks on the iris, and their eyes can take on the colour of their surroundings due to the low amount of natural colour present.
* [[http://photography.nationalgeographic.com/staticfiles/NGS/Shared/StaticFiles/Photography/Images/Content/afghan-girl-portrait-127438-xl.jpg The Afghan Girl]]. It's probably why her eyes are so damn piercing.
** She has a textbook case of central heterochromia, mentioned above.
* One of the signature traits of Creator/ElizabethTaylor was her violet eyes (complete with two rows of eyelashes).
* People with [=OCA1=] albinism (the most profound type) can have pink, red or violet eyes. The eyes will often alternate between these colors, depending on the lighting. (The majority of albinos have [=OCA2=], with blue or gray eyes.)
* A symptom of Waardenburg Syndrome includes blue eyes of an unnatural-looking bright or pale shade. Sometimes the sufferer will have complete or sectoral heterochromia, with one or part of the eyes this brilliant blue.
