"Essentially, every main character in Sonic the Comic. However, Knuckles has blue eyes, Sonic was eventually retconned into having Green Eyes once he turned Blue, Tekno has Green Eyes and Tails was eventually retconned into having blue eyes."

Someone should remove this on grounds that if every main character had the eye color, clearly it wasn't significant.

Because it's a sort of People Sit on Chairs mess that is in the holding pen for a disambiguation.

Isn't this like People Sit on Chairs? It's not really a trope.

Yes, which is why this thread is working on it.

I notice that this page is locked. Could Crystal Gayle's "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue" be added to the Music folder?

Deleted Blue Eyes (and a few other potholes) from examples for Yu-Gi-Oh's Ryou Bakura, Kingdom Hearts, Pokemon and Avatar the Last Airbender. On its disambiguation page, Blue Eyes has been split into six tropes. Please replace with one of those only if applicable. (i.e it fits the symbolism as well as the color)

Is this really a trope? Especially as (after the initial paragraphs saying how they can be symbolic of magic etc) it goes on effectively say "Except in the majority of the world, where it is overwhealming normal. And in fact, its also unremarkable in the rest of the world too".

How exactly do you use this trope? You can name a majority of the "nice" characters on TV as this, since most of the human world has Brown Eyes.

I dunno. It's not just for people with brown eyes though; they have to have a particular reason for being that color. Although I think in a way this seems to be the polar opposite of Blue Eyes, wherein you literally can't give them to a character without them fitting into some subtrope of it.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
