''[[http://www.gutenberg.org/files/12116/12116-h/12116-h.htm Der Struwwelpeter]]'' (Shaggy-Peter or ''Shockheaded Peter''), written and illustrated by Heinrich Hoffmann, is an 1845 German children's book filled with cautionary tales. These cautionary tales are more grim than others, however -- they often end in death or dismemberment for the child. They are a source of plenty of NightmareFuel, too.

An episode of''VanDerValk'', a long-running British crime drama, features a SerialKiller who takes revenge on his victims by subjecting them to the same fates as in the stories. Interestingly enough, the "Johnny Head-in-Air" victim, although intended to drown, does in fact live.

* ColorMeBlack: "The Story of the Inky Boys".

* ColorMeBlack: "The Story of the Inky Boys". This is slight variant of the trope as the three boys are not turned into "blackamoors" themselves by the ink, but instead are transformed into solid black silhouettes that hardly look human.
