* In ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', the Sailor Scouts' [[TransformationSequence magical transformations]] have a layer of Glamour on top, so that no one who sees the girls in and out of their Sailor forms will be able to recognize them. This comes up in the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]] when Sailor Venus joins the Scouts and then meets them in their civilian forms later; it takes a moment for Amy, Raye and Lita to figure out that the blonde girl who just showed up at Raye's temple is Sailor Venus, and vice versa.

* In ''[[SeventhSea 7th Sea]]'', the sorcery associated with Avalon IS called Glamour, with a few of its knacks able to make the sorcerer more beautiful for bonuses to social skill checks. Likewise, Scryers of Sophia's Daughters get for free the Above Average Appearance advantage (or reduce the cost for Stunning or Blessed Appearance advantages) as part of their sorcerous package. Also, the advantage "Dangerous Beauty" is specifically used for seduction attempts.

* The Runner from MarvelComics has an undefined ability to make people enjoy his company. It doesn't prevent people from attacking him, which results in the occasional amusing fight scene.

Now imagine a character who has this power, and ''can use it on crowds''. We'll wait for you to stop shivering.

Added DiffLines:

*The ''Literature/MarlaMason'' books feature the character of Joshua Kindler who is a "love talker" or Ganconer- a person with a rare innate magical talent that causes everyone around him to adore him and feel intense pleasure in his presence that becomes overwhelming with physical contact. It is not certain if this is a psychic effect, magic or pheromones. Like the mythical Gancanagh, sex with a love talker ruins you for anyone else and leaves you pining for the love talker's touch- only complete erasure of all memories of sexual experiences with the love talker can cure this. Many love talkers do not bother taking care of appearances or hygiene, and seduce people with their powers alone even when sloppily dressed. Joshua is an exception who is handsome even without his powers, in addition to being charming and fashion-conscious. Anyone even somewhat attracted to the male gender has their minds clouded with attraction and infatuation when around him, and those who are not attracted to the love talker's gender still have strong feelings of affection and protectiveness that seem parental or filial.

* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' has a whole category for people with these powers called Strangers. One particularly terrifying example is Nice Guy: whose power makes everyone think that he's a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin nice]], [[TheNondescript if rather boring]], [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin guy]] who obviously isn't doing anything wrong. Even when he's in the middle of disemboweling someone.

* ''TheLaundrySeries'' has a glamour as a spell any mildly-skilled sorcerer can cast. They're ranked on a scale of one to five, with one being "cover up minor imperfections," three being "make a humanoid entity look perfectly human," and five being "instill outright worship." At one point, Bob buys an [=iPhone=] and silently curses to himself that someone at Apple must be casting class five glamours over them.
* In Tom Holt's J.W. Wells books, there is an entire department in J.W. Wells and Co. devoted to glamour. It is run by the [[TheFairFolk The Fey]] and their biggest, highest-paying clients are celebrities and politicians who are looking for more publicity. The Fey and their part-human descendants are particularly good at "effective magic" which affects the viewer's mind and perceptions, while other types of magical beings prefer "practical magic", which changes the physical structure of things.
