...No matter how I look at it, this is NOT "cute."

— Garry

Garry: ...the love of... This painting, this room... Why must it be so unsettling?!

Mary: Huh? Really...? I think it's cute...
Garry: Wha...?! What about this is CUTE?!
Mary: I just think it is... What about Ib?
Ib: It's cute.
Mary: I know, right?! It's so adorable!
Garry: Sigh... Enough of this... Let's just check the room and leave. I feel like I'm being watched in this room... Talk about unsettling.

Red Eyes is one of Guertena's paintings as well as an enemy located in the Violet Area in the game Ib. Its image shifts between the appearance of a red-eyed, pink rabbit sitting in a grassy field and a large blue doll with protruding red eyes, depending on the character's points of view. In Garry's case, the painting depicts the large blue doll. In Ib's case, it depicts a pink rabbit. The image of blue doll is set against a peach background, while the image of the pink rabbit is set against a light blue background. Both images have a black inner frame, surrounded by a reddish-brown outer frame.


Red Eyes is first seen in the room past the door left of the Flowers of Jealousy painting in the Violet Area. At this point in the game, it appears to Ib in the guise of pink, red-eyed rabbit sitting in a field.

Once Garry is separated from Mary and Ib, the painting appears as a large blue doll with messy, black strings for hair and protruding red eyes.

In the Doll Room

Once Garry reaches the Doll Room, Red Eyes actually poses a threat, as opposed to being just an exhibition; picking up the white paint ball that sits in front of its frame in the Doll Room and attempting to leave leads Garry to discover that the door he entered the Doll Room through has become locked and that he must find a key that is hidden in the stomach of one of the blue dolls in the room in order to escape. If the player fails to complete this task within a certain time, Red Eyes drives Garry insane, which adds two points to his doom counter. As long as Garry's doom counter isn't too high, Ib can slap him twice, or slap him and call his name, to return him to normal. If his doom counter is too high, he cannot turn back to normal.
