* The [[MonsteroftheWeek Jyarei Monsters]] in ''Anime/EtoRangers'' are revealed by Bakumaru's Revealing Mirror. The mirror does not show the monsters' reflections, however; the mirror works by shining a brilliant light forward in a wide area, and if a monster looks at the light, it reveals its true form.

* ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'': Al has to find a mirror like this in a room full of magic mirrors which all show something different. He finds it when he notices that his reflection is wearing his "street rat" clothes instead of the princely robes he has on. Then Iago sets off the trap because he thinks the mirror which depicts himself covered in jewelery must be the one.

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', this is implied (and in the seventh arc stated) to be the reason why Beatrice is repelled by mirrors. [[spoiler:[[AmbiguousGender Yasu]] says that he/she hates mirrors because they do not acknowledge his/her make-believe appearance and remind him/her that s/he's not the powerful witch s/he pretends to be. Thus, in the story, the camera will always show which personality is in control. Yasu's actual image is never seen in the visual novel.]]
