* During his "Dashing" phase, Wrestling/CodyRhodes would stop and preen himself in the hi-def video display on his way down to the ring. For a bit he even had an assistant around to have a mirror ready in case he needed some touch-ups, or just because. Then [[Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr Rey Rey]] shattered his nose, and he took it slightly worse than SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom.

seemed an obvious enough edit, given that this is mythology
* Narcissus from Ovid, making this OlderThanFeudalism. He's put under a spell that made him fall in love with his own reflection in a pool of water and stared at it until he wasted away into nothing. Other versions say he was just that damn conceited, or that the curse was [[IronicHell a punishment for his pre-existing vanity]] (this would be where we get the word "narcissist" and its kin - they refer to this guy). Yet other versions speed up his death by having him try to kiss himself, only to fall in and drown. He didn't die as such - Echo, the nymph who had sought him, saved him by turning him into a flower. And now you know why that one kind is called a Narcissus. Echo was cursed to only be able to parrot what others had already said. This is (in one version) how Narcissus fell in love with his reflection - upon seeing it, he said "I love you", prompting her to gladly do the same... but he thought it was his image saying it.

* Lex Luger had a short lived shtick as The Narcissus (or possibly Narcissist, it has been a long time) where his ring entrance involved a lot of flexing in a full length mirror in the ring and preventing it from being removed a couple of times for the beginning of the match.

* In one of Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''Black Widowers'' stories, the guest is a man whose specialty is job interviews. He keeps a variety of objects on his desk, and judges people's character by how they interact with those objects. The fashion-conscious Mario Gonzalo asks how ''he'' did on his interview, and the guest replies that he never reveals his secrets, but he will mention one thing: "There was a mirror in the room."
