* Mrs. Danvers in Hitchcock's film adaptation of ''Literature/{{Rebecca}}''. She is creepy in herself, with a deathlike appearance, and in her devotion to the memory of Rebecca such that she doesn't wash the clothes of Rebecca's scent and goes to her room every day.

%%* Helga in ''Film/ThePacifier''. *shudder*



* Literature/RiversOfLondon features Molly, maid, cook and housekeeper for the Folly. Looks like an attractive maid at first glance but at second glance moves too quickly and quietly for comfort, will not or cannot speak and covers her mouth when she laughs or smiles to hide way too many teeth.

* Subverted in [[Franchise/TheHauntedMansion]], as the unnamed Groundskeeper that guests encounter at the beginning of the Graveyard scene is just as spooked by the ghosts as (presumably) you are. You'd think that he'd be used to it by now. [[note]]Fan theories have suggested is that he's not scared of the ghosts, but by seeing you be thrown out of the attic window and subsequently killed by the Black Widow Bride/Constance Hatchaway. Other theories suggest that the guests' appearance has made the ghosts materialize, and that he has never scene the ghosts before, or that he was an [[LaserGuidedKarma unknowing grave robber caught in the act by the ghosts]].

** Also subverted or straight in that the Cast Members running the ride are dressed as members of the Mansion's service staff, and depending on their disposition, can be creepy or quite cheery.
* Played straight in Ride/TheTwilightZoneTowerOfTerror for the same reason as the above Haunted Mansion; the Cast Members running the ride are dressed as the Hotel's bellhops, elevator attendants, and so on. In a moment of NeverTrustATrailer, most ads show the Cast Members as ghoulish looking, gray-skinned bellhops with white eyes. Whether this was an AbortedArc or never intended to happen is not quite clear (it would be monumentally expensive and difficult to teach every Cast Member who works on the ride to do the makeup themselves, to the level of having them essentially be performers ''and'' running a ride).

* 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.]]]]
