Added DiffLines:

* Following a childhood accident that made his left eye blind, British rapper Music/SlickRick is always seen with it as an IconicOutfit.


* Maj. Bludd has one of these by default in every incarnation of ''GIJoe'' he appears in, but in the comic Billy eventually acquires one as well, cementing his status as a badass.

* In ''VideoGame/SplinterCellConviction'', the imagery is evoked with both the co-op player characters rendered in the loading screen with their sonar goggles only covering one eye. This also applies to [[spoiler: the enemy Splinter Cells.]] Appropriately, the latter are EliteMooks. However, the biggest badass, protagonist Sam Fisher, wears his goggles covering both eyes.

Added DiffLines:

* As of [[https://www.deviantart.com/slifofinadragon/art/Let-s-Endless-Party-Ch-3-pt-2-Final-741080972 chapter 3 part 2]] of [[https://www.deviantart.com/slifofinadragon SilfofinaDragon]]'s ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' fanfic ''Let's Endless Party!'', UsefulNotes/DateMasamune and [[UsefulNotes/SanadaYukimura Sanada]] [[MisterSeahorse Yukimura]]'s son Masa loses his right eye during a fight [[spoiler:with the ghost of UsefulNotes/ToyotomiHideyoshi, who Masa's SplitPersonality Sei killed five years earlier, and starts wearing an eyepatch since.]]

Added DiffLines:

* 8-Ball from ''ComicBook/ElMarvo'' wore an eye patch, and is presumably a respected member of Sokrates' organization, as he was first seen in the comic performing executions in the name of him.


* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'' has [[{{Chuunibyou}} Zeke]], who wears an eyepatch emblazoned with a turtle. He claims it conceals his "Eye of Shining Justice", which supposedly has enough power to reduce men to ash, but if his Blade Pandoria is to be believed, he just wears it because he was too poor to afford a contact lenses for a bad eye. A multitude of his battle poses have him with a hand in front of said eye as though he's channeling power from it.

** The Blade Praxis also wears an eyepatch; in post-battle banter, Zeke will accuse her of "infringing" on his "copyright." Praxis retorts that she has an actual condition, so if anything he should lose ''his'' eyepatch.


* In ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'', the [[{{Engrish}} Seaick]] form of their GiantRobot, Gosei Great, has a literal EyepatchOfPower; it not only adds to the pirate look of the mecha, it allows it to detect and target enemies.

* In ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', [[EmotionlessGirl Nu-13]] has an EyepatchOfPower that is replaced by a [[CyberCyclops visor]] whenever she [[PoweredArmor activates the angelic-looking Murakumo unit]]. Disturbingly, the eyepatch in question has a design akin to a [[RedEyesTakeWarning red sphere]] with a [[HellishPupils thick black stripe]] running down the middle at an angle. Note the similar design on the back of protagonist Ragna's [[EyesDoNotBelongThere right hand]]. In case it isn't obvious, Nu is ''dangerous''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/KingsmanTheGoldenCircle'' [[DeconstructedTrope explores the downsides]] of this trope. The character wearing the eyepatch (and later, a pair of glasses with one black lens) was established as a highly trained [[OneManArmy One-Man Army]] before the event that cost him his eye. Sadly, without proper depth perception, he now struggles to aim his shots properly, and in his first fight since that event, he is caught completely off guard by an attack from his blind side. He gets better over the course of the story and seems capable enough in the final fights, but the failures early on are shown to put quite a damper on his confidence.

Added DiffLines:

* U.S. Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) wears an eyepatch (and, in conjunction with his beard, [[CelebrityResemblance arguably looks]] not unlike Big Boss.) A former Navy SEAL, Crenshaw lost his right eye in to an IED blast in Afghanistan. Beneath it, he sports a glass eye with a Captain America emblem, which he showed to Creator/ChrisEvans.


* Nice Holystone of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'', who conceals a small but functional ''bomb'' within the empty eye socket covered by her eyepatch.

* In the original television airings of ''Series/TheYoungIndianaJonesChronicles'', there were segments set in the present day (the ''then'' present, around 1992). These bits featured an elderly Franchise/IndianaJones, who wore an eyepatch over his right eye, and a pair of glasses over the patch. He also had a nasty facial scar trailing out from under his eyepatch. However, [[DoneAGeorgeLucas these 1990's scenes were all deleted in later airings of the show]], and still haven't become available on home video. A [[EyepatchAfterTimeSkip time skip]] was involved here, because Indy still has both eyes in all the films so far (which cover events up to 1957, and when the ''Chronicles'' first aired extended only to 1938).

** The upcoming reboot kits DM with an eyepatch with modern technical advances (it's going to be an "i-patch.")

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/ChaiLaiAngelsDangerousFlowers'', Darkie, one of Dragon's henchmen, sports one. It is later revealed to be the result of Rose putting his eye out in an earlier encounter.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebVideo/WorldWarTwo'': The series discusses the [[CrazyAwesome/RealLife incredible exploits]] of British general Carton de Wiart who sports one of these after being [[TisOnlyABulletInTheBrain shot in the face]] during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI.


* ''WesternAnimation/BountyHamster'': Marion, one of several shout-outs to True Grit. Alt!Cassie from "Twin Cheeks" also has one.
