A Lightning Eye looks like a normal flute in Band Land, which is purple with a few holes in it, with a tan rim. However, the Lightning Eyes have big bulging eyes with red veins and blue eye lids. Lightning Eyes can also appear on the usual Band Land terrain, the drum tops (the tan tops, with the blue squares in the middle with red and purple streaks). ALSO, Lightning Eyes can appear in the clouds in Gong Heights.
They attack Rayman by shooting small lightning bolts out of their eye. The player can tell when they will attack when the eyes blink, and then one eye opens, signalling that they're about to shoot. They can be punched and defeated, however they are almost always located within walls and so out of reach of Rayman's fist.
