** The [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils demon lord]] Pale Night ''looks'' like this trope, being a seductive female figure wrapped in a white veil blowing on a spectral wind that occasionally shifts enough to ''almost'' reveal what's underneath it. But though she is incorporeal, she's an eons-old obyrith, not an undead, and the sheet is suspected to be a sort of cosmic sensor to protect existence [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm from the horror of her true form.]] One of her special abilities is to briefly reveal the truth beyond that veil, which is a "save or die" attack.
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', some of the oldest pewter models to represent Undead Spirit Hosts depicted traditional bedsheet ghosts. Other players figured out that it was cheaper to buy plastic models and paint them ghostly gray and white, especially if those models came from a rival's army range.

* You actually get to ''play'' as one of these in the SelfExplanatory AdventureGame ''VideoGame/GhostInTheSheet''. {{Justified|Trope}} in that his "boss" tells him that if the sheet's taken off, what's left of him will scatter away and be lost forever (He died under an incoming bus, which was "very messy"). [[spoiler:Actually, the "boss" put the sheet on his definitely-not-fragmented body in order to prevent him from [[{{Intangibility}} phasing through objects]] and getting too much information. It doesn't work, of course, as he still manages to ''get'' said info...]]
