* 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]].

** Subverted in ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet2010'' remake, when Kris wakes up from her nightmare and goes to the bathroom to splash water on her face. Played straight at the very end.

* During production of one of the ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' movies, Creator/RobertEnglund once woke up and saw Freddy Krueger staring at him from out of a mirror. Mr. Englund admitted to being scared until he realized he'd fallen asleep while the make up artist was working on him.

* Inverted in ''Series/DoctorWho'': "Vampires of Venice". The Doctor looks at himself in a mirror briefly and turns around, only to run into a group of creepy vampire-like girls. He then turns back toward the mirror and does not see their reflection. Subverted in that, far from being scared, the Doctor is fascinated; "How are you doing that? 'Cause I am loving it!"
* In the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode [[Recap/SupernaturalS02E20WhatIsAndWhatShouldNeverBe "What Is And What Should Never Be" (S02, Ep20)]], Dean sees the woman in white, now covered in blood, in the mirror on the closet door.

Added DiffLines:

* Is both played straight and averted in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil1'': In the Advance Mode of the Director's Cut of the original game, looking in the mirror in the mansion's bathroom causes a zombie to spring from behind you. In Invisible Enemy mode in REmake, seeing the monsters reflection is the only way you ever actually see them.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/HomeMovies'' uses it in the season one finale as both a CrowningMomentOfFunny and Awesome when McGurik hides in a heckler's car and pops up to fill his rear view mirror while he is driving home.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', Otto Octavius is startled by his own reflection in his lab equipment, but is then frightened when he catches sight of {{Supervillain}} the Green Goblin hovering right behind him, in the process of stealing a Tech-Flight [[HoverBoard glider]]. This trope is later [[InvertedTrope inverted]] when [[spoiler:Harry Osborn holds a vial of [[PsychoSerum Globulin Green]] up to his face, the ''viewer'' is briefly allowed to see the Green Goblin, as Harry's own, distorted reflection.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' Jade is getting her mouthwash from behind a mirror cabinet and when she closed the door the mirror reveals three Shadowkhan behind her. It turns into more of a CrowningMomentOfFunny when it takes her several seconds to notice them and does so with a SpitTake to the mirror. Becomes even funnier when the Shadowkhan [[spoiler:instead of attacking her [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness offer her cereal, toast and other breakfast food]].]]
* The ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode ''Dreams In Darkness'' has this, with Bruce trying to go over clues in the Batcave, only to see ''SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker'' come up behind him in the reflection on the Batcomputer monitor. When he turns around, he finds Alfred there instead.
