The Scarlet Eyes[2] or Crimson Eyes[3] (()()()()()()()()()()[2] or ()()()()()()()()()()[3], Hi no Me) are a trait exclusive to members of the Kurta Clan.[2] Particularly when treated as items, they are also known as Kurta Eyeballs (クルタ()(ぞく)()(がん)(きゅう)()()()()(), Kuruta-zoku no Gankyū).[4][5] Excluding Kurapika's, only 36 pairs exist.[6]


Though typically brown, the irises belonging to members of the Kurta Clan glow scarlet when they are emotionally agitated. If a member of the Kurta Clan dies in that state, his/her eyes permanently stay scarlet postmortem.[2]


Due to the Scarlet Eyes being considered one of the most gorgeous colors in the world, they are treated as a rare jewel by many.[2] After the Phantom Troupe massacre of the Kurta Clan, Kurapika is the last and only survivor of the Kurta Clan.[7]

In the Nostrade's Mansion, Kurapika and the other applicants for the positions of Neon's bodyguards receive data cards listing items of which they have to bring one to be hired. One of the body part items is specifically a complete set of Kurta Eyeballs, that must be scarlet, with head preferred; the difficulty level is considered A.[4]

Pairs of Scarlet Eyes have been shown to cost anywhere from 900 million to over 2 billion Jenny Currency Symbol during the auction in Yorknew City. They were stolen by the Phantom Troupe.[6]

  • Kurapika mentions a "daughter of the Mafia" among the people he extorted Scarlet Eyes from.[9] If the woman in question is Neon, an inconsistency results, since the pair Kurapika won at the auction for her were a copy forged by Kortopi,[6] which disappeared 24 hours later,[10] and the Nostrade Family went broke afterwards.[11]
    • Melody mentioned to Kurapika that Neon's Scarlet Eyes were stolen,[12] whereas in reality they vanished due to the restriction of Kortopi's Gallery Fake.[10]
