* 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 being depicted. Yasu's actual image is never seen in the visual novel.]]
