In its first appearance in Haunted Castle, the Eye falls from pairs of eyes affixed to the walls of some levels. When approached, a single eyeball is launched and bounces about the stage.
Its more well-known version was defined in Castlevania: The Adventure, where it rolls across the screen in one direction. This version reappeared in its sequel, Belmont's Revenge, and its remake, Adventure ReBirth. Oftentimes there are an endless stream of them, initially falling down from a high place. In the Game Boy titles, they will explode when struck, which can destroy some of the platforms they are rolling on.

A giant form of the Big Eye appears as the end boss of the first stage of Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth. It bounces and rolls around, and ejects smaller Big Eyes from its pupil. It can also turn around and fire a large beam.
Dracula's final form in the game also summons Big Eyes out of mystical symbols.

- The Rolling Eyeball boss from C: The Contra Adventure (also by Konami) is likely a reference to the Big Eye.
