Giant Eye of Doom

Go To

A scene in which a character has a huge eye staring at them. In many cases, the character won't notice even this—at least not until they turn around and find themselves face-to-eyeball. In the case of an Oculothorax the eyeball is all there is!

Compare with Mirror Scare, Danger Takes a Backseat, and Peek-a-Boo Corpse. There is naturally a lot of overlap with Eye Awaken.

When she unplugs the ORCA from Fenway Park's PA systems and attempts to flee with it (causing the sound that's attracting Ghidorah's attention to solely emit from the device in her hands), Ghidorah's heads all crowd around the press box's windows separating him from Madison, with one eye on the side of each head glaring daggers into her back as she slowly realizes something is wrong and turns around.

In reality, his inhaler is a placebo, water with a dash of camphor, prescribed to Eddie in order to placate his mother who uses guilt and Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy to keep Eddie under her thumb.
  • At the end of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell they succeed in contacting the Raven King or one of his lieutenants, who looks at them through the window in the form of a raven so large all they can see is its eye.

    • In The Lord of the Rings, despite what the movies might tell you, the Great Eye is more of a metaphor and emblem of Sauron's power, no literal giant-ass flaming eyeball on top of an Evil Tower of Ominousness.
