Puppy Dog Eyes:
Anime & Manga
Anime's "large-eyed" style in general, of course
: Yugi Muto is an expert at this.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Happosai in has been known to try this tactic. Seeing as how he's a Ranma ˝ Dirty Old Man, and usually using it to try to get a girl to let him grope her, it never works.
Miaka in .
Fushigi Yuugi Hazumu in .
Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl The three sisters in the TV series do it Read or Die en masse at least once.
Shinobu in , to whom it seems so natural as to be an integral part of her character, done with unconscious ease. Her very character seems like perpetual Puppy Dog Eyes, as if the concept were incarnated as a character.
Love Hina Chiyo-chan from rivals Shinobu for use of this trope.
Azumanga Daioh The titular protagonist from gets these when she wants to get something done by her master - with varying levels of success.
Steel Angel Kurumi Kororo in .
Shaman King Ryuichi from .
Gravitation Tamaki in uses them to great effect to get the other club members to do what he wants.
Ouran High School Host Club Kirimi did this. Holy crap was it effective.
This is basically Hunny's default expression.
Yotsuba in gets these when on the verge of tears. Fortunately, she hasn't learned how to do this on purpose. Yet.
Yotsuba&! Mikuru from Suzumiya Haruhi often shows this whenever Haruhi turns her attention on her.
Pokémon Cute ◊, childish, young Gligar often did this to Ash, usually when frightened. Unusually, it does this after it evolves ◊.
Ash does the same thing himself.
Episode "Fangs For Nothin'". Jesse and James of Team Rocket do this while trying to persuade a Dragonite to help them.
Episode "Having a Wailord of a Time". A Torchic is trying to escape from a building when Pikachu jumps in front of it to try to stop it. The Torchic uses this technique and when Pikachu is caught off guard it uses its Blaze ability on him and gets past him.
In , the very young Sousuke (before becoming a Full Metal Panic! Child Soldier). Very Moe and adorable. Just look at his big, beautiful eyes. No wonder Kalinin wanted so badly to make things up to him and make him smile from the bottom of his heart - with looks like those, even hardened soldiers' hearts would melt.
In one episode of , Mako used this to try to get out of being captured by the Nerima Daikon Brothers Villain of the Day, and even said the sound effect (uru uru) outloud.
Kotengu in does this when he gets caught by Inori (it looks quite cute on his Harukanaru Toki no Naka de - Hachiyou Shou "chibi" form).
Bleach Nel the Arrancar does this at times in the anime version, usually when she's talking to Ichigo.
Ichigo, of all people, pulls this (something similar at least) with Captain Suě-Fēng in an episode of the Captain Amagai filler arc. It works.
Anime episode 262. While Haineko is talking with the sword beast Narunosuke she thinks that he's using Puppy-Dog Eyes on her, but he doesn't appear to be doing so on screen.
In , a bunny does this when the young Elric brothers are about to kill it for food. It works until a fox snatches it to feed her kits instead.
Fullmetal Alchemist Aoi uses this on Miyabi to convince her to let Tina keep Uzume. She can't take it.
Nagisa from pulls this on Ken in a couple of the earlier episodes. While she's part puppy, actually.
Animal Detectives Kiruminzoo Used of all people by Rei Ayanami at Gendo Ikari in the new feature. Succesfully! A bit more subtle than the average anime example, but still obviously present.
Rebuild of Evangelion In , Natsu uses this, while wearing an over-sized cat-head (so you can't see his actual expression), it works to get the cat-crazy opponent to loosen his magic-negating bonds.
Fairy Tail There's a Porn with Plot Hentai set in a Standard Fantasy Setting (I don't know the title, I found it while surfing). The protagonist rescues a mute Sex Slave girl, who attempts to "reward" him the only way she knows how. She reaches down to unzip his fly, and he bats her hand away. Cue huge, teary eyes. He rolls his eyes and lets her do her thing.
Hanaukyō Maid Tai Episode 1. Taro's 3 personal maids do this when he orders them not to touch him while he's in the bath.
Episode 2. Ikuyo Suzuki (with tears) to Taro, when she thinks that she might be laid off.
Episode 10. Taro's personal maids when he asks to be allowed to dress himself and his maid cooks when he can't eat all the food they've prepared for him.
Episode 15. Ikuyo Suzuki to Taro agian, to persuade him to wear a maid's uniform.
La Verite episode 4. Konoe meets a little lost girl who tears up when Konoe asks who she is.
- Allen Walker. You may now go all D.Gray-Man D'AAAWWWWWW.
In , Futa does this to Tsuna when he first appears to ask for Tsuna's protection.
Katekyo Hitman Reborn! Nava of know how to use them well.
Wild Rock In Ureshiko's eyes display the normal teary look, but they actually get Oku-sama wa Mahou Shoujo smaller than usual.
In , Maya uses them on his brother Kira to strong effect.
Saint Beast In episode 7 of , Haruka gets an adorable set of these after Yuriko tells her to believe in Manabe anyway (who's suspiciously avoiding her in this episode). Yuriko is speaking from experience since her thoughts were centered around her own Kotoura-san Dark and Troubled Past, and Haruka saw it all hence the reaction.
Usui manages to pull this in . Bonus points for an actual dog being in the background and whining.
