Mismatched Eyes

Pro: Makes it clear that the characters eyes don't match each other.

Con: Can be misunderstood to include other differences than color, such as size or shape.


Heterochromia (current redirect)

Pro:

  • Currently already a redirect.
  • Proper name for the condition.

Con:

  • Not a commonly-known word.
  • May present spelling problems.
  • Not immediately clear that it refers to eyes.


Boat Light Eyes

Pros: More or less keeps the existing title by adding a clarifying qualifier. More interesting than a plain description (Your Mileage May Vary)

Con: Still doesn't automatically convey what "boat lights" means (Your Mileage May Vary for remembering it.)


Heterochromatic Eyes

Pro:

  • Proper scientific term for the condition.
  • "Eyes" makes it clear from the name that the trope is about a character's eyes.

Con:

  • Open to misspelling.
  • Not a commonly-known word.


Desu Eyes

Pro:

  • Immediately recognizable to most fans of anime at least due to Memetic Mutation.
  • Can be used to Pot Hole, but still lets readers know it has to do with eyes.
  • Still references Rozen Maiden.
  • Easier to remember than Heterochromia.

Con:

  • Is not immediately apparent to anyone new to anime or the internet in general.


Bowie Eyes

Pro:

  • Clearly about eyes
  • People familiar with David Bowie know it's about his heterochromia.

Con:

  • Meaningless for people who don't know who David Bowie is.


One Eye Blue One Eye Something


Two Eyes, Two/Different Colors


Duplicate



Odd Eyes (Also what it's sometimes referred to as.)


Dual Colored Eyes

Pro:

  • Clearly about eye color

Con:

  • Can be misunderstood to mean eyes that are two colors at once, for example predominantly green with a gold ring around the pupil.


Eyes Of A Different Color

Pro:

  • Clearly about eye color.

Con:

  • Sounds like it could apply to a character with non-normal eye color (purple, silver, red, etc.) in general rather than specifically two different eye colors


Traffic Light Eyes

Pro:

  • Clearly about eyes

Con:

  • Implies that the eyes change color.
  • Emphasizes red-green, red-yellow or yellow-green combinations.
  • Implies three eyes.


Dyed Windows

Pro:

Con:

  • Meaning is opaque unless the connection is made to "the eyes are the windows of the soul".
  • Implies that the color is artificially changed.
