** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'', Nuibaba gives one to [[spoiler: Berkut]] and he later uses it against Alm and his crew. The end result is that [[ZombieApocalypse dozens, if not hundreds, of Terrors]] rise up from the ground [[TakingYouWithMe and attempt to swallow everyone]]. Zofian and Regelian alike (Alm's party included) [[OhCrap lose their collective shit]]. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even the user has issues]] [[EvilIsNotAToy with the end result]].

* In the ''Literature/ChooseYourOwnAdventure'' book ''Secret of the Ninja'', TheProtagonist and their best friend Danai can potentially find one in their TimeTravel adventures. [[spoiler: If the Protagonist get near a certain well, they'll see a CuteGhostGirl on the bottom and hear her voice begging them "take me out of the well". Refusing will lead to a BadEnding where the Protagonist falls into the well and drowns, but agreeing will lead them to find an old mirror in its bottom; the CuteGhostGirl, Yayoi, reappears and explains that her soul's bound to the mirror but now she can rest in peace, and tells the protagonist that the mirror will help her. Later, showing the mirror to the BigBad when he's about to attack a {{ninja}} that the leads need to talk to... will cause said BigBad to run away in terror [[ScreamDiscretionShot from whatever he saw on its surface]], and lead to a Good Ending where the two leads can return home.]]

* One house on the ''GliderPRO'' CD, "In The Mirror", is themed around these--some helpful, some harmful, others just cool-looking. Mirrors were also a common form of teleportation, going as far back as ''Glider 4.0''[='s=] "The House."

* In the ''Literature/TsarGorokhsDetectiveAgency'' series, the frequent BigBad [[Myth/SlavicMythology Koschei the Deathless]] goes through several magic mirrors that ordinary allow him to spy on anyone, anywhere, and to reveal a person's true nature, if he or she happens to be disguised by a spell. Koschei ends up accidentally breaking his first mirror himself. The replacement works fine, until [[DumbMuscle Mitka]] gets his hands on it and somehow messes with the settings to show him [[AllMenArePerverts girls swimming in a river]]. Koschei later reveals that he's been unable to fix the settings, so the mirror ''always'' shows girls in a river and nothing else. He executed five masters, who failed to fix it, before deciding to look for yet another replacement. He manages to order one from Venice, which is nice, except the mirror insists on speaking Italian, annoying him to no end.

* Tom Holt's entertaining but nonsensical novel ''Snow White and the Seven Samurai'' subverts this (as he does practically everything else) by introducing the "Mirrors 3.1" operating system which Snow White's Evil Queen Nemesis uses to pretty much control the whole fairytale world. Sort of. Since it's a parody of a [[MicrosoftWindows rather well-known OS]], you can imagine it doesn't work quite as well as the box claims.
