* As a vampire, Touta Konoe from ''Manga/UQHolder'' lacks a reflection. It's what tipped off Kuromaru about his true nature.
* Despite its female lead being a [[{{Dhampyr}} half-vampire]] and [[PlayedForLaughs playing classical weaknesses for laughs]], ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' actually avoids this trope. [[spoiler:Until very late in the series, where Youko's vampiric nature begins asserting itself and she stops showing up in photographs -- which causes her friend Mikan to realize that she's a vampire.]]



* ''Film/VanHelsing'' shows one of the common ways in which vampires can experience this -- lacking a reflection in a mirror. Those paying close attention can see the later OhCrap moment coming--not only is Dracula not showing up in the mirror, but neither are [[spoiler:the other couple hundred people in the room]].
* The same trope of vampire lore was parodied in ''Film/DraculaDeadAndLovingIt'', where a big dance scene ends up being ridiculous when seen in a mirror, particularly when Dracula is spinning the woman in the air.



* Vampires in Sergey Lukyanenko's ''[[Literature/NightWatch World of Watches]]'' can glamour the minds of humans to hide themselves from sight. This does not work on Others, who can easily see through these mind tricks. The only way for a human to see a hidden vampire is to look at a reflection, as glamour only works in direct line-of-sight.
** Video cameras work fine as well.



* In ''Literature/TheNekropolisArchives'', vampires look human, but cast no reflection or shadow. Demons can change their form to disguise themselves, but they can't alter their kaleidoscopic eyes.

** One episode had Sam leap into the body of a madman who fancied himself a vampire, in order to protect a young woman from being killed by the vampire cult. Throughout the episode, Sam scoffs at the existence of vampires, until just before he leaps out; he finally sees a mirror, only to find that he has no reflection.
** In another episode, a police psychic was able to see the real Sam after a while, meaning she is either insane or the real deal.

** Some of the classic tropes also apply in the Buffyverse. Vampires, for example, don't cast reflections (prompting Willow to ask Angel at one time, "How do you shave?"). They also have a tendency to shift into their GameFace when emotional. Also, only children or people suffering from infections could see Der Kinderstod in the ''Buffy'' episode "Killed by Death".

* In the ''Series/{{Ultraviolet}}'' series (not ''Film/{{Ultraviolet}}'', but also about vampires) they don't show up in mirrors, camera or film, they can't be heard in audio recordings, and when they captured one they found they were unable to even take a fingerprint from it. This does also cause problems for the vampires themselves, as for instance telephones do not pick up their own voices.



** Nick and the other vampires had typical vampire reactions to sunlight, garlic, crosses (though Nick could hold one for a few moments due to a built up tolerance)ect. Nick wasn't supposed to show up in a mirror, but budget limitations led to occasions where it was said his humanity let him show up in the mirror.

* In Swedish folklore, trolls, sorcerers and the Devil can ''förvända synen'' -- "warp the sight" -- in onlookers. While there are some standard folkloric methods of protection, two bear mentioning. First, in many legends it is a active process. If the supernatural being isn't aware of you, you can see their true shape. For instance, there is a common story of a sorcerer who is heckled by a young woman. He threatens her and says he can call the river to raise up, and indeed a flood appears, so the woman jumps on a rock and lift her skirts. Another woman who comes by unseen by the sorcerer, however, see her jumping the rock and showing her unmentionables -- there is no flood. Second, some beings with glamour are trapped by their own vanity. Trolls, for instance, usually appear incredibly beautiful and dressed in expensive clothing, looking like refined ladies or gentlemen. Which seems useful, but the natural habitat of trolls is empty wilderness, preferably in the middle of the night, where rich gentlemen and fine young ladies don't wander around willy-nilly.

* ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'' had a man ranting on a soapbox about vampires being everywhere. None of the passersby seem to be listening to him, and the reason why is apparent in a large mirror being carried across a nearby street, which shows a reflection of him alone.

** Vampires in ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'' typically leave blurry images in mirrors, photos, and films though they can usually make the image look normal by focusing their will. The Hollow Mekhet can't be recorded and don't show up in mirrors at all, because their [[EnemyWithout reflections are off somewhere making trouble]]. Also, vampires with low [[KarmaMeter Humanity]] slowly slide into the UncannyValley as they forget how to look alive.
** Vampires in ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' do not have any problems with cameras barring any supernatural Flaws that do something about it. However the Lasombra either don't leave images on cameras and mirrors, or they have a weird abnormality which means their reflection is that of what they would really look like if they weren't turned into vampires: usually a rotting corpse or a walking skeleton.
*** Also in ''Masquerade'', the Obfuscate Discipline (which either makes the user invisible or appear to be someone else) is generally ineffective against cameras or other mechanical sensors.

* Many of the {{Glamour Failure}}s in ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}'' are exactly what one would expect from a series were AllMythsAreTrue: silver repels even human-form werewolves, and so on. The series' most unique form of [[CameBackWrong revenant]], the Harrowed, bear most extensive discussion: they carry the [[EvilSmellsBad smell of death]] everywhere they go, have a distinctly [[EvilAlbino pale complexion]], keep a [[RedRightHand scar from their cause of death]], can potentially [[InhumanHuman be rotting and decayed]], and are prone to [[EvilDetectingDog setting off]] nearby wildlife. If a lot of their giveaways make them sound like evil incarnate, it's worth remembering that even the [[AntiHero nice]] [[HeroicWillpower ones]] have a JekyllAndHyde complex.

*** With the ''Dawnguard'' DLC, this penalty is removed and [=NPCs=] no longer grab their torches and pitchforks to chase you out of town. However, it's said that ''everyone'' is completely terrified of you, for reasons they can't exactly pinpoint. ''Dawnguard'' also redesigns Vampires so they now possess GlowingEyes. While logically this ''should'' immediately out a vampire away, it is implied that only the Dragonborn [[InvisibleToNormals can notice this]], due to possessing a unique [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Aedric soul]].

* In ''Webcomic/ErrantStory'', the Elven Rangers who move around the world of men in search of 'Errants' (half-elves who frequently become psychotic) often uses glamours to disguise their elven nature. At one point, however, a young child can see through it, though her mother dismisses it...

* Hilariously done on the children's show ''WesternAnimation/CountDuckula'', where the eponymous duck decides to redecorate the castle and one decorator hired does the place up in all windows. Since the duck is a vampire, he can't see himself in any of them.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'': Whenever Derek Powers got angry, which was frequently, his powers would flare up and start to burn through his artificial skin, revealing that of the [[ILoveNuclearPower radioactive]], [[PowerGlows glowing]] villain Blight. Actively using his powers for even a few seconds will completely shatter it, requiring him to have new skin grafted on. His inability to keep his skin on through the events of any given workday actually makes him a case of BlessedWithSuck. This worsens as he undergoes a [[VillainousBreakdown figurative meltdown]], followed by a literal [[SuperPowerMeltdown meltdown]] which left him dead for good.

* No reflection (usually reserved for vampires and TheSoulless). GenreSavvy characters noticing a lack of mirrors ([[HouseOfBrokenMirrors or several broken ones]]) will have this same effect. Depending on the setting, this may include not appearing on film and/or digital cameras, or being inaudible on telephone or recording.

* The first episode of ''Series/{{Merlin 2008}}'' uses the mirror variant with a vengeful crone who kills an esteemed guest of Camelot and takes her form.
** It later shown to happen with every magical disguise. The reflection shows the true form. Though for some reason wery rarely characters are exposed via reflection. Usually it is only shown to clue the ''viewers'' in.
** More broadly, sorcerers in Merlin are indistinguishable from 'Muggles' until they cast a spell, when their eyes flash gold.

tortured.



* Several villains on ''Series/AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'':
** "The Tale of the Mystical Mirror": A woman who killed young girls in a ritual to keep herself eternally young and beautiful looked like an old hag (and so did her portraits) in mirrors. Hence why one girl wondered while visiting her house, "How can you be so vain and not have a mirror in your bathroom?" Clearly taken from the folklore surrounding Transylvanian (Romanian) Countess Erzebet (Elizabeth) Bathory.
** "The Tale of the Captured Souls": A boy who stole people's youth to make him young forever looked like an old man in mirrors, pictures, and on video camera and was thus alarmingly camera shy. Partly inspired by Creator/OscarWilde's ''Literature/ThePictureOfDorianGray'', or possibly by the concept that pictures steal bits of the soul.



* The {{Telenovela}} ''La Mujer en el Espejo'' ("The Woman in the Mirror") is about a homely woman who finds a magic mirror that gives her a beautiful appearance -- but her reflection still looks ugly.



* ''Series/TheXFiles'' episode "The Unnatural" is about an alien who falls in love with baseball, taking on the form of a Negro player in 1947 Roswell. At one stage while he's asleep another character sees his true [[TheGreys Grey alien face]] reflected in the window of the bus they're traveling on. The image disappears when he wakes up.



** In the episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E6TheVampiresOfVenice "The Vampires of Venice"]], the vampires cannot be seen in mirrors, are burned by the sun, and reveal [[FangsAreEvil scary fangs]] when they attack. [[spoiler:Turns out to be ''literal'' Glamour Failure, as they are actually a race of non-humanoid FishPeople called Saturnynians, using a "perception filter" to look human. However, the combination of actual reflection + perception filter confuses your mind, so it just doesn't see any reflection, the fangs is your subconscious warning your conscious mind of the danger. Their fear of the sun is because the heat quickly dehydrates them, which makes sense since, well, they're ''fish''.]]



* MonsterOfTheWeek Primator from ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' had the ability to assume the form of any Ranger, but would be forced out of it when he looked at his reflection.

to:

* MonsterOfTheWeek Primator from ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' had the ability to could assume the form of any Ranger, but would be forced out of it when he looked at the Rangers. The [[AchillesHeel one weakness]] in this power is that seeing his reflection.reflection renders Primitor unable to maintain the altered shape. It should be noted that it doesn't always force him back into his original form. (In one instance it caused the helmet of his altered form to change color.)



* Reversed in one of the possible quests in the video/PC game ''VideoGame/{{Darkstone}}''. A witch has cursed the women of a local village to turn to stone if they ever become more beautiful than she is. Since she looks to be about three million years old, all the women are statuary. Your character must visit the local dungeon and find a perfectly normal-looking man who is convinced that he's ugly as sin, so has come down to find the Fountain of Youth in order to hopefully fix the problem. Turns out that his real problem is that he's been using something called the Mirror of Lies, which makes beautiful people appear ugly and vice-versa. After getting it from him in exchange for a normal mirror, your character gives the Mirror of Lies to the witch, fooling her into believing that she's young and gorgeous again, so she releases the spell on the village.

If the player becomes one, going one or two days without feeding and people start noticing odd things like how pale your skin is or your creepy eyes. On day three you suffer catastrophic glamour failure and most [=NPCs=] will start shouting [[KillItWithFire "BURN THE VAMPIRE!"]]

** Werewolf players also have minor glamour failures according to guard banter, wondering did they just see fur growing out of your ears, ask if you've been tending hounds because you stink of dog, as well as noticing your disturbing [[PsychoticSmirk wolvish grin]].
** You can still suffer from Glamour Failure accidentally, either as a vampire or a werewolf, by using your transformation when you meant to do something else.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** For many of Tamriel's [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]] bloodlines, the longer they go without feeding, the more monstrous in appearance they become. Eventually, they will no longer be able to pass as mortal and risk being attacked on sight. Series' lore tells of the Bonsamu bloodline of Valenwood, who are ''completely'' indistinguishable from mortals unless seen in the light of a candle.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollSIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', Vvardenfell's strain of vampirism brings instant monstrous changes regardless of feeding. There is no hiding the fact that one is a vampire, which means being cast out from civilized society. Given the influence of the [[CorruptChurch Tribunal Temple]], which considers vampires to be nothing more than monsters to be killed on sight, this forces vampires to retreat into remote wilderness areas and abandoned ruins where they form their own clan societies.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', Cyrodiil's strain of vampirism allows vampires to seamlessly blend in with mortals as long as they feed regularly. They are also known to be able to control their blood lust to a far greater degree than other bloodlines, rarely killing their victims outright. They are typically well-placed in Cyrodiilic society, able to manipulate local politics to their benefit.
