* The Creator/AlanDeanFoster series ''Journeys of the Catechist'' features the main character, Ehomba, using a mirror to scare away some creatures that had been bombarding the party with giant pine cones. Afterward, each character looks into the mirror in turn. The normally jovial and exuberant Simna appears much more somber and depressed. The enormous cat Ahlitah appears as the height of feline majesty, and the recovering drunkard Knucker sees himself as he is when drinking. When Ehomba first looks into the mirror, the other three are momentarily blinded by the sun's reflection when they try to look. Looking again, the mirror is showing Ehomba exactly as he is. [[spoiler:Only Ahlitah notices that the sun was in front of Ehomba, not behind him, and so couldn't have been the source of the light that the others saw in the mirror.]]

* In ''Series/KamenRiderExAid''[='s=] net spinoff ''Kamen Sentai Gorider'', protagonist Emu meets several [[BackFromTheDead slain Kamen Riders]] in a ClosedCircle mystery. The room where they spend most of their time has a giant mirror, and none of the dead Riders casts a reflection -- but Emu does, which makes them suspicious. [[spoiler:This actually gives away real culprit: one of the Riders present is Kazuma Kenzaki (Series/KamenRiderBlade), who didn't die at the end of his series but rather turned himself into a monster (though he initially claims that's the same thing as being dead). When the ''real'' Kenzaki shows up, he casts a reflection just like Emu, exposing the impostor.]]

** Within a dream, Eames[[note]]and probably anyone else, but Eames is the only that does so[[/note]] can copy other people's appearances. When he looked at himself in several mirrors, some reflections showed his true face, others reflected his disguise. Which mirrors reflected his true face and which reflected his disguise changed (almost certainly deliberately) between cuts.
