* ''Film/NightAngel'': Lilith is the villainess of this movie, a demon who goes around [[TheVamp seducing and devouring hapless people]] ([[DepravedBisexual not just men]]). It seems that she can [[LivingAphrodisiac supernaturally charm literally everyone]], but she specifically goes after the staff of a glamour magazine rather than something more bold like a politician. Apparently, it's pure vanity: she wants to be a cover girl so people will fawn over her.

[[folder:Fairy Tales]]
* In one Avar fairy tale, there is a beautiful maiden who lives in her castle and shows herself to no one. Should you come to the castle and call her three times without her answering, you turn into stone, and there are plenty of statues there already. The hero tries to get her to come out, but fails. His sister comes to rescue him, calls the maiden twice, but fails as well. Then she shouts "are you more beautiful than me, that you are so vain!?"... Three seconds later, the doors slam open with a loud WhoDares!.

** Kasumi confront Ranma after he'd once again insulted [[{{Tsundere}} Akane]] on her appearance, saying he needed to apologize and cheer her up. When he needs to know why, she replies that while Akane may be stubborn, awkward and tomboyish... "she's still a girl."

** Subverted in the case of Lucius the Eternal, 40K's champion of Slaanesh. He was once the prettiest of the Emperor's Children (the Legion that would eventually turn itself over to Slaanesh), but a fight with a SpaceWolf broke his nose in a way that couldn't be fixed, and later acquired facial scars in battle. This pretty much broke his mind, now he actually seems to ''seek out'' disfiguring scars when fighting, and his face looks like it's been used as a tic-tac-toe board since.

* In the comic ''ComicBook/{{Sha}}'', the soul of a witch who was burned at the stake by the Inquisition in the 14th century returns in the 22nd century to exact revenge on the five reincarnated demons responsible for killing her in their past lives. While the four men are all killed one by one, the woman who betrayed her is instead left alive with a debilitating disease that will slowly take away her beauty from her.

* The narcisstic Peacock from Polish animated series ''WesternAnimation/HipHipandHurra''. While he has a very manly voice, he's not only very feminine but tends to faint every single time his beautiful tail gets dirty.

* Rarity from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is the most feminine of the Mane Six, and also the most concerned with her appearance. Her fussiness has caused conflict in a couple of episodes, but she's usually willing to overcome these bad habits for the sake of her friends. "Sisterhooves Social" showed her willing to hide in a pool of mud as part of a ploy to make amends with her little sister Sweetie Belle, though Rarity insisted on a trip to the spa to clean up afterwards.

# '''Women are vain, and ''this is a bad thing''.''' Sometimes the trouble brought on by vanity will be strictly limited to comedy--e.g., women will pack two week's worth of clothing for an overnight trip and primp and preen in front of any shiny surface they happen past. At other times it will cause more serious plot-related complications, as even the most level-headed female types will promptly turn into a HorribleJudgeOfCharacter if they are paid an appearance-based compliment by an antagonist. Women will also be tempted, ''far'' more than their male counterparts, by promises of youth and beauty at whatever cost. There's a reason the VainSorceress is an almost [[AlwaysFemale exclusively female]] character type. At the most misogynistic end of the scale, women being vain is linked directly to their own downfall and often the downfall of any men who fall for their [[TheVamp wiles]], thus presenting women as the inherently less moral sex and vanity as an inborn proclivity to sin that women must strive much harder to overcome if they wish to be truly virtuous. In such a narrative, a non-vain, or less-vain, woman is shown as a model of virtue (and often an UnkemptBeauty). MakeUpIsEvil is often in full play, with vanity leading naturally to deceit, and in older works, reckless endangerment of health, perhaps with lead-based or arsenic-based makeup.
