This tag refers to situations where the eyes aren't given the customary glint or light spots, or are colored with a solid dull flat shading. This usually indicates the bearer is either expressing a vacant stare, or is unconscious or otherwise "not all there" at the moment. This technique, in its most extreme form, can be used to indicate:
- A character dying,
- A character is blind
- In hentai, a character's will being broken, usually while being raped.
- Possessed or otherwise not themselves, such as mind control.
- Occasionally, a character expressing a tranquil fury.
- A character has no emotion, either because they are an artificial being, or because of magical abilities.
In the context of Kemono Friends, this usually denotes an extinct Friend (an animal-girl of an extinct animal).
This tag is not used for when the irises and pupils are missing entirely. For that, see blank eyes.
- No pupils – pupil missing, iris and sclera present.
- Blank eyes – pupil and iris missing, sclera clearly present.
- Solid eyes - pupil and iris missing, sclera is color other than white.
- Dilated pupils – large pupil, iris and sclera present.
- Hollow eyes – pupil and iris missing, sclera missing or black, empty holes for eyes.
