[[File:BL_Commander.PNG|thumb|Eyepatch syndrome]] [[File:qod_23_-_blue_laser_commander.PNG|thumb|Syndrome eyepatch]]
When animating characters from different angles, it is often easier to '''flip images''' rather than draw new ones. While often this technique works, without careful attention the flip will reverse text or other asymmetric features unintentionally. [[The Brothers Chaps]] will sometimes do this intentionally as a parody of cheap or amateur animation, although sometimes they fall prey to this themselves. [[Matt Chapman|Matt]] has referred to this as "Blue Laser Commander eyepatch syndrome."
