** Moody maintained his mortician certifications all the while he was a wrestling manager, and returned to the funeral trade after his time as a wrestling manager ended. He told of several times someone at a funeral would recognize him, and want to take a picture of him with the recently-deceased. He always declined.

* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' gives us Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard. His habits include going into unnecessary detail in describing what he is doing around the team, [[TruthInTelevision talking to those he is performing an autopsy on]], and his criminal psychology degree means that he talks about the mess in a killer's mind with almost as much detail as he describes the mess in the body of their victims. Also, Gibbs will occasionally bring an uncooperative suspect down so Ducky can explain to them ''exactly'' what will happen to their bodies if they continue not to cooperate.

%%* Legitimate First from ''Discworld/NightWatch''.* According to the ''Literature/{{Discworld}} Companion'', the Guild of Gravediggers, Embalmers and Allied Trades, like all Ankh-Morpork guilds, cultivates a certain image in its members, which in this case includes training in morbid humour and ventriloquism.

[[folder:Theme Parks]] * The Caretaker from ''[[Theatre/HalloweenHorrorNights Universal's Halloween Horror Nights]]'' is a soft-spoken mortician and surgeon that dug up bodies from numerous graves to use for company, furniture, or even as a dinner ingredient. He's not any more kind to living, either; as he kidnaps innocents to use as guinea pigs for "living, breathing autopsies". [[/folder]]

* The main character of ''ComicBook/RachelRising'' has an Aunt Johnny that has been working as a mortician for a long time. While she's not creepy, she is much more used to being around the dead than the living at this point, so she's a little rough in the social skills department, and [[ImaginaryFriend the ways that her mind distracts her during her work hours]] leaves her just slightly disconnected from reality at the start of the first volume, until Rachel brings her back to Earth. -->Spend 20 years with corpses and see how ''you'' end up, smartass.

Paul Bearer.
[[folder:Myths & Religion]] * The Vodoun/voodoo deity Baron Samedi a.k.a. Saturday takes this appearance. In some lore he lurks in graveyards looking for people to turn into zombies. [[/folder]] [[folder:Professional Wrestling]] *While Wrestling/TheUndertaker more fit the Western trope early in his career (and still has a few hints of it), but his former manager, the punnily named Paul Bearer fit this to a T, with pale skin, modern black suits, and a really creepy high-pitched voice. Even better, William Moody, who portrayed Bearer, really had worked as a mortician before becoming a pro wrestling manager.

* ''ComicBook/PierreTombal'': Gravedigger Pierre himself isn't scary, just the fact that all the dead people in his cemetery are living skeletons whom he (and others) treat as residents in the place. * ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke'': Gravediggers are recurring characters in this series, usually using ''formol'' as perfume, having vultures as pets and already coming to take measurements for the coffins before the cowboys are actually shot down. The most recurring undertaker has a body pale skin color, sometimes green and creep out almost anyone they talk to. Subverted in a few strips where one is shown to play violin at a party or when one, after a burial, asks if anybody wants to use his cabs to go back in town and say.

* The mincing, AmbiguouslyGay Dennis Rainbird from ''Series/MidsomerMurders''. He even drives a Porsche with a [[VanityLicensePlate RIP]] license plate, and one of the first things he says about a murder victim is how she prepaid for the most expensive funeral service, with a tone implying that he's very much looking forward to it.

He and his mother are the town gossips and way too involved in everyone else's affairs, which makes them suspicious from the start [[spoiler:but they turn out to be a RedHerring and are killed by the actual murderer]].
