* Used quite subtly in WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd's episode on ''VideoGame/{{Polybius}}'', when ''something'' briefly appears in the reflection of an ''VideoGame/{{Asteroids}}'' cabinet, then runs off before the Nerd notices them.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fY68v9yAys mirror room]] in ''SilentHill3''. First blood vessels start coming out of the sink in the mirror and covering the mirror image and your reflection. Then the room itself gets covered in blood and starts draining your health. The door also locks, so you think you're permanently trapped, but you can leave once your reflection stops moving.

* Used in ''Sonic: Night of the Werehog'', a cartoon based on the video game ''SonicUnleashed.'' In a HauntedHouse, Chip looks at his reflection in the mirror... which promptly grins at him, then lunges at him. Not all that scary, though, since all the ghosts wanted to do was [[spoiler:take his picture]].
