* On ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'', Miss Claudette has this reputation among the other inmates; they only know her as a NeatFreak who seems suspicious of everyone and everything, and she is reputed to have murdered someone. [[spoiler: She ''did'' kill someone, but not for the reason her fellow inmates seem to think. She ran an illegal maid-service (illegal because the girls were, just like she once was, underage and undocumented Haitian immigrants), and [[MamaBear she found out that one of her clients had sexually abused a 14-year-old girl that she had sent to him. So she killed him in retaliation.]]]]

* Eunice Parchman, the housekeeper in RuthRendell's ''A Judgement in Stone'', is mildly creepy and off-putting, but that's probably just because she's desperately keeping a secret (her illiteracy) which will eventually drive her to murder the entire family. (And that's not even a spoiler: the book ''begins'' with the sentence "Eunice Parchman killed the Coverdale family because she could not read or write." The ensuing novel is an exploration of the hundred tiny threads that lead to the murders, such as that she can't read a note written by the daughter and comes to believe that whatever's written on it is making fun of her.)

* ''Franchise/TheSims''1 and 3 take this to another level with the buyable maid Bonehilda. She is a [[DemBones skeleton]] who performs much of the same functions as a maid. While she doesn't actively try to scare Sims, they will sometimes run in terror from her. Additionally, if you already have hired a maid and the maid sees Bonehilda, she will quit.
* Cainhurst Castle in ''{{Bloodborne}}'' has an army of these, with just as many engaged in cleaning as [[BattleButler attempting to murder you with blowpipes and swords.]]

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Film/ThePacifier'', the children love their creepy Transylvanian maid even though she scares the hell out of Shane and has a very dreary personality. When he kicks her out of the house and has to carry her to the car, she can be seen trying to bite his neck.

** And the ExpandedUniverse has Satthralope, housekeeper of Lungbarrow back on Gallifrey. She's married to the [[GeniusLoci house]] and spends most of her time sitting in her room spying on the house's inhabitants via the mirrors.
* Lurch. "[[Series/TheAddamsFamily You Rang?]]"
** He's hardly the scariest member of the family
*** Heck, he's the LEAST scary. Except for Wednesday in the original series, who is really sweet; she just likes headless dolls and spiders.

* Miss Stolz from ''QuantumLeap'': In the episode "A Portrait for Troian," the Creepy Housekeeper is used to her full potential, and we find out that Miss Stolz was actually a ghost the entire time. If that's not creepy, I don't know what is.
* Mrs. Bale from ''AsTimeGoesBy'': Subverted, since she is secretly quite nice, just extremely strange. Lionel does, however, make a Mrs. Danvers joke at her expense. As is revealed in the wedding episode, she also has a secret crush on Rocky, her employer.

* Jane Twisden from Charles Ludlam's ''TheMysteryOfIrmaVep''. Mainly a parody of Mrs. Danvers.

* Frau Lurker in ''TheHouseOfFrankenstein'' is a very broad parody of the trope.
