I'm thinking of games like Doom: The Boardgame, in which six-siders are used, but results are printed on the dice rather than numbers. There are lots of games like that. But most likely, you're thinking of numbered sixers only.

Gialmere: As long as it's 2d6 that would be great. I tried to think of a game like that but could only think of multi-dice games like poker dice.
---------------------------------------------------------

OK, of course someone will start a geeklist about this, so why not me

Plz add game with dice (any type: d4/d6/...) which do NOT have numbers/pips printed on them, but results (for the game)

Besides a couple of ordinary dice, there's also a special die with an 'F', a 'W', and 4 colours for the 4 different types of properties.

I got a second-hand set without the special die and I am happy to say that I managed to get the special die through the generosity of a BGGer.

The single die has 2 faces each with yellow, red, and blue. The outcome of your roll determines which stack to add a wafer to.

Most of the dice in the game show one of three animals. There are two dice numbered 1 to 3, though even those don't have pips but little pictograms instead.

There are several dice with this game, but some come without numbers (specifically the "fight" dice that have symbols to describe their results).

Also, the movement dice (the only one with numbers) also have a moon symbol on one side that indicates when the moon phases counter should move.

After Keng Ho Chess Dice, here is Shogi Dice ...
There are not so many games referenced here (I mean in the BBG db).
I'll try from time to time to add some using special dice from my collection. For rules, there are excellent dbs for d6 games over the net so no need to duplicate.
BTW I'm happy to see that some of my own pictures found their use in your list.

Clue: The Great Museum Caper is a heck of a game...remove the Clue name from the title...it has nothing to do with how the game plays, its just there for brand recognition, misleadingly so.

Anyways, one of the dice has pictures of eyes, motion sensors, and cameras on it instead of numbers. You use to check for the thief's location.

Same mechanic as Memior 44, so naturally some custom dice were also needed. The version I played with had plastic dice which didn't feel like normal dice--too light.
