* In Clive Barker's ''Literature/{{Weaveworld}}'', the villain Shadwell, who considers himself the world's greatest salesman and schmoozer, is given an enchanted jacket by the sorceress Immacolata. The jacket can produce from its pockets the object [[Your heart's desire most desired]] by whatever client Shadwell is trying to make a deal with.

* [[BigBad The Lone Power]] from the ''Literature/YoungWizards'' series supposedly looks different to everyone. To Nita, he usually looked like a good looking but cruel [[EvilRedheads red-haired man]].

When SomethingForEveryone is in play, if Bob casts a {{Glamour}} spell that is intended to make him irresistably attractive to everyone who sees him, Alice may see him as Creator/OrlandoBloom, while the FaceHugger sees him as [[Film/{{Alien}} Second Officer Kane]]. In the case of an ArtifactOfAttraction, instead of having an innate power to make people want it specifically, it may simply ''imitate'' every observer's most personally coveted object. [[Literature/HarryPotter Lord Voldemort]] will see it as the PhilosophersStone, [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Gollum]] will see it as the One Ring, and so on.

* ''WesternAnimation/IceAge 4'': The siren fish project an image of whatever the victim loves to lure them in: each of the heroes sees their love interest (real of imaginary, in Sid's case), Sid's grandma sees a Chippendales sloth with a PornStache, and Scrat, of course, sees his acorn. Cut to reality, where Scrat is now trying to bury the siren into the ground, blissfully unaware of what's really happening.

* In the movie ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End of Evangelion,]]'' [[spoiler:the multiple avatars of Rei/Lilith who appear to guide each individual human through the transition into Instrumentality have the ability to appear in the form of someone that individual loves. There are several shots of cast members getting a last look at/embrace from what appears to be someone they care for, right before bursting into [[strike: orange Tang]] LCL.]]
** With one notable exception [[spoiler: Aoba Shigeru, AirGuitar playing BridgeBunny who only sees a swarm of naked Rei's and promptly freaks. The writers have said this was because Aoba was a nihilist who cared for no one.]]

* ''Literature/CiaphasCain'': During a raid on a Slaaneshi cult, the madam uses her magic to project an image the soldiers won't shoot at. [[AwwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther Cain sees Amberley]], and is about to shoot another soldier in a jeaous rage (also motivated by the soldier addressing "Amberley" by the wrong name, i.e. his own girlfriend's) but is distracted long enough for Jurgen to approach and his AntiMagic effect to reveal the madam as an frumpy older woman, who Cain shoots on the spot.

* It's possible that the Shadow Thurible in ''VideoGame/DontStarve'', as well as the literal {{Nightmare Fuel}} that fuels it, has this affect on the player characters. However, while the Thurible smells like different things that most likely attract the different characters, the raw Fuel seems to have different properties of things that may frighten them.

* In ''VideoGame/StardewValley'', stardrops taste different for everyone. For the player, it's whatever they have set as their favorite thing.

Added DiffLines:

* The original concept of [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]] had his face look different to everyone, with him only appearing as TheBlank in photographs due to GlamourFailure. However, the faceless version of him ended up proving so iconic that it just became his regular appearance.


* Pretty Poison, a succubus from the ''{{Nightside}}'' novels, appears as everyone's hottest sexual fantasy come to life.

Added DiffLines:

* Subverted in ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'': The titular Wizard appears differently to each supplicant, depending on what will impress them most. However, Dorothy eventually finds that each appearance is an illusion using various special effects to ensure that no one guesses his true nature.


* The monsters of ''SilentHill'' appear as appropriate dark reflections of a person's psyche.

* ''Manga/FrankenFran'': Fran is asked by the girls of a school to [[AllMenArePerverts make their boyfriends less horny]]. She does so by [[spoiler:creating a huge pheromone-emitting mass of flesh that causes any man to see a crowd of naked and horny women.]] Naturally, this works too well, with the boys spending every spare minute having sex with the thing, so the girlfriends complain to Fran. She shows them what she did, and the girls promptly start beating it up with anything at hand, to Fran's confusion.

--> Impersonating an Inquisitor is a capital offense.
