A Great Exponent Puzzle

Hello Jellybeans,
Here is a great little mind bender for you to work on when you have a few spare moments.

Narcissistic Numbers (by the way...narcissistic means excessive admiration for ones self)

153 can not get enough of itself. Proof: 13 + 53 + 33 = 153.

Can you find a number which repeats itself like this, using fourth powers?

What about tenth powers?

Thanks to 'Think Again!' for the great puzzle!!
