* A few examples from ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}''...
** In the first HalloweenEpisode "Candy Bar Creep Show," when the babies are hiding in Stu and Drew's makeshift haunted house among hearing Angelica and other trick-or-treaters about to enter, a sheet section of the tent falls onto Tommy, and the nearby electric fan that was blowing paper bats around gives the sheet-covered Tommy a more ghostly appearance. This manages to scare Angelica AND Grandpa Lou.
** In "Toys in the Attic," Grandpa Boris is trying to find Tommy and Angelica wandering their attic, which they think is haunted. The wind blows the attic window open and sends a white sheet flying onto Grandpa Boris. Naturally, Tommy and Angelica think he is a ghost, and Boris blindly trying to get around with the sheet over him doesn't help much either.
** Spoofed in the "Chanukah" special; as an attempt to try and defeat the "Meany of Chanukah," Phil suggests taking Tommy's white pillowcase and wearing it over his head to disguise as a ghost. It doesn't work, and Phil only ends up walking into a table leg.

* In the [[ChristmasEpisode Holiday Special]] of ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', Flint attempts to disguise himself as one with his Infernape and [[YetAnotherChristmasCarol pretend to be the Ghost of Christmas Past]] to try and snap Volkner out of his holiday funk. It doesn't work, because Volkner sees through the disguise easily and also Flint tries to pull this every year.

* In ''An American Ghost Story'' there is another straight (and frightening) example. Unusual in that the character interacts with the thing for an entire nervewracking scene and it remains scary without ever revealing anything under the sheet [[spoiler:(though at one point nothing is revealed under the sheet in an unusual way)]].

* In "Frisky, Fluttery Ghost" from ''Mouse and Mole'', Mole misinterprets Mouse's comment that there is "crispy, buttery toast" waiting for him as "frisky, fluttery ghost," then gets scared by thinking that a sheet which Mouse is hanging on a clothesline is one of these.

** Special mention to the Duplighosts in ''VideoGame/PaperMario'', who are literal bedsheet ghosts who can transform into dopplegangers of your partners. In the sequel ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', there's a unique one known as [[spoiler:Doopliss]], who transforms the citizens of Twilight Town into pigs. He is more [[NightmareRetardant humorous]] than scary, but he's a lot more dangerous than he seems.

Sub-trope of StockCostumeTraits. Compare JacobMarleyApparel. The StringyHairedGhostGirl is the rather violent Japanese parallel. Not to be confused with [[TheGrudge a scene wherein a ghost crawls up from underneath the bedsheet and gets you while you lie on the bed]].
