* 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]]. [[/note]]

** 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.]]]]

* 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.]]
