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]] (not to be confused with the Amber Brown eyes that are, in fact, naturally occurring), [[RedEyesTakeWarning red]] (as would exist in albinism only), {{purple| eyes}} (rare even among albinos), [[ProphetEyes pale silver]], mixed, and various other brilliant shades you're unlikely to see on anyone not wearing colored contacts and in some cases not even then.

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.

Supertrope is ExoticEyeDesigns, which is for any thing about eyes being different.

'''Subtropes include:'''
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* EyeColorChange
* PurpleEyes
* SupernaturalGoldEyes
+ UhOhEyes (subindex)


[[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.]]
* ''Anime/SamuraiSeven'' 's Ukyo has violet eyes.
* In ''Anime/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.
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Ishbalans are immediately recognizable by their red eyes. The Elric's golden eyes are also implied to be a rarity in the present time [[spoiler:but rather common in Xerxes, a civilization of which their father is the only survivor.]]
* Miyu from ''Manga/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 ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' have silver eyes that turn gold when they start to use their powers.
* Almost every cursed member of the Sohma family in ''Manga/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 ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' 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 ''Literature/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 ''Manga/CorpsePrincess'' 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 ''Manga/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 ''Manga/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.
* ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'': Sakura has [[GreenEyes jade eyes]], Syaoran has brown eyes, 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 [[http://www.hetarchive.net/images/plog-content/images/scans/comic-birz-extras/2012-05_piccolo-cover.jpg half-pink, half-blue eyes]]. Originally, this was [[http://i51.tinypic.com/w0ro7m.jpg only a feature]] of his [[GenderFlip Nyotalia counterpart]].
* 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.
* Komori's eyes in the anime adaption of ''Manga/KomorisanCantDecline'' are pink with a yellow highlight on the bottom. In the manga, they were amber colored.
* Tohru from ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' has red eyes with gold highlights and [[AnimalEyes slitted pupils]]. It marks her nature as a dragon.
* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', the titular Ghouls have their kakugan -- their GameFace which features red irises and black schlera. Anti-ghoul laws authorize the killing on sight of anyone sporting kakugan. [[HalfHumanHybrid One-Eyed Ghouls]] are marked by only having one kakugan, while their other eye remains normal.
* ''Anime/YuGiOhVRAINS'': Revolver's eyes are literally completely yellow. ''[[UncannyValley All]]'' [[UncannyValley parts of his eyes]]. [[spoiler:While Ryoken's eyes are a much more natural light-blue with him having normal sclera, his pupils are white and not black.]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Franchise/{{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]].
** ComicBook/{{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 Franchise/TheDCU has purple eyes; this eventually turned out to be the mark of a potential mage.
* In ''{{ComicBook/Violine}}'', Violine's eyes are [[PurpleEyes violet]], and her father's are [[SupernaturalGoldEyes yellow]], both indicating that they have mind reading powers.

[[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.
* In ''Fanfic/TheHumanWhoseNameIsWrittenInThisFanfiction'', the ParodySue's eyes are described as "sea green (or was that golden? or possibly magenta?)"
* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' a number of characters canon and original have red eyes. Other odd eye colors are mentioned, but the red-eyed ones are suggested to be tied together by [[spoiler: blood]] and come up more often as a plot point.

* In ''Literature/DragonBones'', Oreg says that the dragon, whose skeleton is buried under castle Hurog, was beautiful and had silver eyes. [[spoiler: The Hurog family's unusually violet eyes are more likely than not a hint at their dragon ancestry.]]
* [[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.
* Creator/MercedesLackey's ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'':
** Vanyel has silver eyes.
** 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. [[Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy Grand Admiral Thrawn]] has glowing [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], and Creator/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 ''Literature/NeedfulThings'', can change the color of his eyes: they always appear as the exact shade that the observer finds most attractive.
* [[Literature/{{Corum}} Prince Corum Jhaelen Irsei]], one of the incarnations of the [[CosmicPlaything Eternal Champion]] from the fantasy novels by Creator/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 ''Franchise/{{Dune}}'', though these are common to all Melange users who consume enough of the Spice.
* Trava has one gold eye and one brown eye, and apparently her [[MissingMom mother]] had two gold eyes.
* Alanna of Creator/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 [[MoodRingEyes magical Mood Ring-esque]] eyes.
* The wizard Raistlin Majere from ''Literature/{{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.
* In the ''Literature/DetectiveInspectorChen'' series, this is common in characters with supernatural origins.
** Demonic vice cop Zhu Irzh has gold eyes.
** Inari, Chen's partially demonic wife, has red sclera and black pupils.
** One of their friends has yellow eyes when in natural lighting, but under fluorescent 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 ''Literature/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 Literature/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.
* In ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'', becoming an Iron Sister means getting orange eyes.
* In the ''Literature/WolvesOfMercyFallsSeries'', Sam's eyes are naturally yellow.
* In ''Literature/{{Legend}}'' by Creator/DavidGemmell, Serbitar the albino has un-albino-like bright green eyes, a legacy of his mystical training; at one point in the novel, when he's at his lowest physical and spiritual ebb, they temporarily revert to their natural color.
* The Literature/HonorHarrington series has Eloise Pritchart, whose "topaz" eyes are [[WhatBeautifulEyes made much of]] in the narration. David Weber later clarified that her eyes are the amber-orange-brown of [[http://cdn2.bigcommerce.com/server4400/9a8ce/product_images/uploaded_images/imperial-topaz.jpg Imperial topaz.]]

* The titular characters in ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'' all have eyes that correspond to their respective power sets and domains. While Jack, North, and Bunny have eye colors that would more or less appear naturally in humans, Tooth has opalescent pink eyes that look like faceted jewels (her domain being a giver of wealth), and Sandy has gold eyes. Pitch's eyes are a dull, blackish silver, with a small iris of gold around the pupil that looks like faint sunbursts radiating from a solar eclipse.
* ''Film/CloudAtlas'': The Abbess' eyes flash various colours while she is trying to learn the meaning of Zachry's dream in the film.

[[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.

* Music/AFlockOfSeagulls "I Ran". The girl in the lyrics has tawny (an unnatural bright orang-y brown) eyes.

[[folder:Role Playing Games]]
* In ''TabletopGame/{{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 ''TabletopGame/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 MoodRingEyes that change color according to the MarySue's mood, such as the Changeling race from ''TabletopGame/{{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)! [[MoodRingEyes 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.
* TabletopGame/MaidRPG: lovely colour such as transparent and rainbow are available. And not just as ''eye'' colours.

[[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 [[Anime/KirbyOfTheStars anime adaption]], they [[MoodRingEyes change depending on his mood]].
** After much internal struggle at Creator/HALLaboratory over whether to stick by sprites from previous games, [[spoiler: in ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' [[RetCon Meta Knight's eyes are yellow under the mask]].]]
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', the Al Bhed tribe all have green eyes [[ExoticEyeDesigns with a spiral pattern on them]]. [[spoiler:This is a clue that Yuna is half-Al Bhed.]]
* While strange eye colors are a norm in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', the Au Ra race stands out for sometimes having limbal rings of exotic color as well. The hue varies, but is often of one much brighter then iris, which can lend their eyes a mystical air.
* 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, ''[[ExoticEyeDesigns 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]].
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' has the Sheikah, who seem to have red eyes, and the Gerudo, who have yellow or amber eyes. Many other characters, bosses and mooks have at least some red in their eye too, especially when ''Main/GoForTheEye'' is invoked.
** There's also the Twili in [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]. Normal Twili seem to have fully red eyes, and there's also [[spoiler:Midna who has striking red irises with yellow sclera and Zant who has more orange 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]], {{purple|Eyes}}, and turquoise.
* Most ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' characters have standard eyes despite having all sorts of unnatural hair colors, although a few have technicolor eyes. Satan has {{red eyes|TakeWarning}}, Sig has [[MismatchedEyes 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]].
* ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' plays with this a bit. Having {{red eyes|TakeWarning}} is [[MarkOfTheSupernatural a telltale sign that a person is a Gear]]... but there are other non-Gear characters who sport that eye color such as Chipp (human), Izuna ({{youkai}}), and Valentine ([[AmbiguouslyHuman Backyarder]]). There also exists Gears who lack red eyes entirely ([[SupernaturalGoldEyes gold]] is the likeliest bet, though Ky's part-Gear son Sin has an emerald-colored eye); due to [[DependingOnTheArtist stylistic differences between artists]], this includes Gears like [[spoiler:Sol]] and Justice at times, although red is the preferred color in most depictions. Meanwhile, I-No has [[EyeColorChange color-changing eyes]] that, as displayed in ''Xrd'', commonly shift between different hues of {{green|Eyes}}, blue, and {{yellow|EyesOfSneakiness}}--[[MismatchedEyes sometimes concurrently]].

[[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: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.

* Otherworlders of ''Webcomic/{{Miamaska}}'' are recognized by their [[http://miamaska.tidalcomics.com/index.php?strip_id=24 red and purple eyes]].
* Quentyn of ''Webcomic/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 ''Webcomic/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.
* ''Webcomic/AgentsOfTheRealm'':
** Paige has bright orange eyes, although this may be just how the comic's color palette represents SupernaturalGoldEyes.
** Filoni's one natural eye is pretty clearly pink.
* A race in ''Webcomic/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 [[EyeColorChange 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 ''Webcomic/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).
* ''Webcomic/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.
* ''Webcomic/TheFarSideOfUtopia'' from the start had a broad range of eye colors being common, but still managed to achieve this with the [[http://pastutopia.com/?comic=comic-for-monday-march-9th introduction of Mir]] whose eyes take the usual-unusually colored eyes a step further.
* ''Webcomic/TheGlassScientists'' has Dr. Jekyll with red eyes. Mr. Hyde's eyes may also count, as while they are green, they are an unnatural mint green.
* ''Webcomic/YoungerDays'' has Max, a boy who is 9 years old but looks more like a 4yo and has violet eyes.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* In the Literature/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 ''Wiki/TheWanderersLibrary'' has eyes with the coloration reversed. The pupils are white, with black irises and green sclera.

* ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'': While Jimmy is usually portrayed with generic black eyes, "The Masked Jackhammer" reveals that he has dark orange irises with even darker pupils.
* In any of Creator/ButchHartman's works (''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents, WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom, WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy''), there are characters with pink or purple eyes, and pretty much nobody (including non-white characters) with brown eyes. The only one with brown eyes was the principal in ''Danny Phantom''.
* In ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'', the Beast encountered in the first episode has [[GlowingEyesOfDoom glowing eyes]] with cyan sclera, two-tone yellow irises, and reddish pupils. [[spoiler: The ''real'' Beast normally appears with white GlowingEyesOfDoom, but in a closeup in the last episode is drawn to have eyes identical to the above.]]
--> '''Greg:''' You have beautiful eyes!
* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' most characters just have either black eyes or colored eyes with no distinction between pupil/iris. Garnet, however, has a blue eye, a red eye, and a [[ThirdEye purple eye]] complete with pupil and iris, while Jasper has piercing yellow TsurimeEyes that the animators seem to like zooming in on.
* Imp from ''WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower'' has yellow sclera in his eyes.
* In each of his incarnations across ''WesternAnimation/SonicTheHedgehog'', ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'', and ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'', resident BigBad Dr. Robotnik had black sclera with red irises. While the effect was slightly mitigated by his buffoonish behavior in Adventures, the SU version's was quite creepy. And then there was SatAM's... which he could make glow in the dark when he wanted. <Shudder>

* 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]].
** Music/DavidBowie is a famous example for non-genetic heterochromia, except it wasn't actually heterochromia. Bowie's condition, the result of a schoolyard fight from his childhood, was anisocoria, a condition where one pupil is permanently larger/smaller than the other. Because the aforementioned fight left Bowie's left iris paralyzed, the larger pupil made his left eye merely ''appear'' to be a different color than the right one.
* 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. See, for instance, actor [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/77/3f/eb/773feb0ce25541607ebae1978e94ace1.jpg Jeff Hephner]], who does indeed have gray eyes with amber flecks.
* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sharbat_Gula.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.
