* The titular doctor in ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'' at the beginning of act two. Oddly, he's not trying to garner sympathy. He's just crushed that he inadvertently introduced his archnemesis to the girl of his dreams. He also has the puppy-eyes after telling his viewers about the failure of his latest crime ("Captain Hammer... threw a car... at my head").
* The Literature/WhateleyUniverse has Jade "Generator" Sinclair and Bunny "Bugs" Cormick. The former looks like a 11 year old girl ([[OlderThanTheyLook she's 14]]) and the latter, at first glance, appears to be your typical teenage blonde bimbo (when not in MadScientist mode). Both are both so good at this that their friends often joke that it's one of their [[{{mutants}} mutant]] powers. Bugs even managed to win her [[http://www.crystalhall.org/pushover.html combat final]] just by ''crying''.
* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's [[WhatBeautifulEyes pretty blue eyes]] have a tendency to go puppy-wide whenever he's suffering. This is particularly noticeable in ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}'', where he stays like that for at least three scenes. (The ham-tastic conversation with Spoony, after he accidentally kills Santa Christ and when he's pinned to the fridge by the others.)
** [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] is not too bad at these himself. The wide-eyed "traumatised rape victim" look he has on in the scenes relating to his [[SuperpoweredEvilSide "dark secret"]] is [[WhatBeautifulEyes quite]] [[ImTakingHimHomeWithMe stirring]] [[LargeHam once you stop laughing.]]
** [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] also pulls some rather epic puppy eyes while reviewing the ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' comic. (ItMakesSenseInContext).
** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick also does this occasionally, complete with pout.
** WebVideo/LukeMochrieAndTheInners. [[CaptainObvious All of them.]]
** Doug's talent for this isn't just limited to the Critic. [[WebVideo/BumReviews Chester]] does it, WebVideo/AskThatGuyWithTheGlasses is also good at them and Doug himself pulled some in the ''Breaking Dawn'' [=VLog=] [[TheWoobie that made you want to cuddle him]].
** Doug's new character, Donnie Dupre from ''WebVideo/DemoReel'', knows how to manipulate his long-suffering [[HoYay male]] writer with them.
* A live version of the page image appears [[http://cuteoverload.com/2011/04/22/thats-really-sad/ here]] on Cute Overload.
* Literature/ChakonaSpace features a mouse trying it on a coyote starship captain. It doesn't work quite as planned.
-->(Penny) gave Yote her best wide-eyed helpless waif look, which might have worked a lot better if she wasnít so well fed and sexy.
* In WebVideo/TheBlockbusterBuster's review of Shrek 2, the title card artist E-Joy pops in, much to the shock of [[ItMakesSenseInContext Eric]], who wonders who she is and asks for one reason why he shouldn't fire her. She invokes this trope and is able to stay, much to her delight.
* Parodied in this [[http://cheezburger.com/2895666432 lolcats picture]]. The cat has a solution to this situation: Just shut the door and don't look at the culprit. Nobody asked to see those sad eyes.
* Gaea in the ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' webseries and comic, as one of her ManipulativeBastard tricks. A couple of her male guilmates have tried to imitate her, only to be told they look silly doing it (for the ButtMonkey) or can't measure up to her (for the ManChild). One of her minions tried to pull them ''on her'' in the first movie.
* This is Ellen Rose's most powerful strategy in ''WebVideo/OutsideXbox''. For example, on the ''Show of the Weekend'' episode discussing the ''Kobolds and Catacombs'' expansion for ''VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft'', Luke discusses the effect of King Togwaggle, who lets you hold the opponent's deck to ransom, by getting Ellen to go to the kitchen and then stealing her seat:
-->'''Luke:''' Ellen, I have stolen your place on the sofa, like the sneaky King Togwaggle. Ellen, what ransom will you give me to switch back?\\
'''Ellen:''' Sad puppy eyes.\\
'''Luke:''' ...Ugh, ''fine.'' I would have liked to hold out for more than two seconds.
