* In ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}} NEXT'', one of the possible locations of the Clair Bible is a tower full of these. In truth the dolls were mostly harmless (aside of just floating around) and people ''thought'' they were creepy due to a legend about the person who used to live there, a lonely dollmaker who supposedly turned the girl he was a StalkerWithACrush to into a creepy doll so she'd stay with him forever. [[spoiler: Except for two of them, and one was a demon in the shape of the cutest doll of them all, making people believe that the ''other'' doll was a the dollmaker from the legend after a DealWithTheDevil.]]

* ''Roleplay/OpenBlue'' v2 had Vice-Amiral Swasou, who owned a lot of creepy dolls. Even creepier is the fact that they appear to go places when nobody's looking.

* ''WebVideo/{{Fred}} [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Finds A Creepy Doll]]'': an [[MerchandiseDriven officially licensed]] Fred doll, which he thinks is a VoodooDoll of him. And then it starts talking...



* In ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets'', the [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]] doll Jay finds in an abandoned house may or may not count, but the baby doll in totheark's "Indicator" video '' definitely'' does.



* In ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'', CreepyChild Rebecca has a teddy bear that speaks in a demonic voice, worships Satan, and makes death threats to the other characters.
* ''ChadVader'' has Baby Cookie who seems to be trying to the creepiest of creepy dolls. She wears nothing but booties and a zorro mask while making her chosen minion play, dance and kill.
* Any of ''WebAnimation/SaladFingers'' three finger puppets can be this. Hubert Cumberdale can become human-sized, gain red eyes, and scream for no apparent reason, as well as randomly turn into a black liquid that burns at the touch. Marjory Stewart-Baxter jealously watches Salad Fingers have a picnic with a little girl through the window. Jeremy Fisher can also become human-sized, stores a weird green fluid in his plugged-up mouth, and can suddenly transform into [[MindScrew a second Salad Fingers]] [[ImAHumanitarian to get eaten alive]] by the first.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has [[DemonicDummy Lil' Cal]], who appears completely inanimate, if nightmarishly designed... as long as you're looking at him. When you're not looking, he moves around on his own. [[spoiler:Although it's actually Bro moving him. He's also cursed, is the ectobiological father of TheDragon, and contains the soul of the GreaterScopeVillain.]]

* The granddaddy of them all, the British film ''Film/DeadOfNight''. Michael Redgrave is a ventriloquist who is having a nervous breakdown and thinks his dummy is going to abandon him for another performer. He even attempts murder to keep him. [[spoiler: In another man's psychotic breakdown the doll gets up and attempts to strangle him.]] This movie was the direct inspiration for ''Devil Doll'', ''Magic'' and the Twilight Zone episode with Cliff Robertson.

In horror, dolls are often used as part of the scenery to help establish the mood, even providing a theme for TheDollEpisode. They may even [[PerversePuppet be the antagonist]] or [[LivingDollCollector be used by the antagonist]]. Despite how ridiculous a doll trying to kill people ''should'' be, it's still seen as quite frightening. A similar idea lies behind the DemonicDummy and ScaryScarecrows. Can overlap with MonsterClown.

** "Belly Speaker": The belly speaker's puppet was very disturbing. The fact that it was manufactured to look like its owner, complete with different colored eyes, added to the creepiness factor.
** In "Me, Myself and Murdoch", the constables found a rag doll without an eye found in a CreepyBasement. It was buried there with a chopped up skeleton.

** In "Me, Myself and Murdoch", "Friday the constables found a rag doll without an eye found 13th 1901", Julia gets locked in a CreepyBasement. It was cold storage cellar and finds a childish drawing and a doll, which triggers her memories of James Gillies [[spoiler: who kidnapped her and buried there with her alive]]. She is later reminded of this again when going over Gillies case file and looking at a chopped up skeleton.
