Yellow eyes are common among many species of animal but practically unheard of among humans. Therefore, giving a character yellow eyes is an easy way to show an animal-like nature or highlight an Animal Motif. It may or may not be indicative of a supernatural nature. If the character is an unsavory type, they may be Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness. See also Animal Eyes.
- In The Hunger Games, the girl only known as "Foxface" is an ordinary human with a fox motif, which includes red hair and amber eyes.
- In RWBY, Blake has yellow eyes to highlight her nature as a cat faunus. The eye color itself is not indicative of her non-human nature, as in the setting, humans and faunus alike have a variety of hair and eye colors that would be unnatural by our standards.
- Storm Hawks uses bird-theming for many of its characters. The sharpshooter Ravess has yellow eyes and a swept-back hairstyle that evoke a hawk-like appearance. Characters in the setting have a wide palette of hair and eye colors, so her eye color isn't unusual in-universe.
