** From IMDB: Upon seeing Fats for the first time, Anthony Hopkins was allowed to take the doll home to work with it. However, he wound up being so unnerved by it that he called the consulting ventriloquist in the middle of the night, threatening to throw Fats into the canyon if someone didn't come and get the doll immediately. Richard Attenborough ended up going to Hopkins' house to calm him down.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode, "Krusty Gets Kancelled", features a dummy named Gabbo that can apparently move and think independently of its "master". In spite of this, it's really more annoying than creepy.

* ''ShadowHearts'' has one sidequest per game involving these. There's also an inversion in ''Covenant'', however; Geppetto's puppet, Cordelia, has much more mobility than any puppet should (especially since, although Geppetto [[ImprobableWeaponUser uses puppet string for a weapon]], she doesn't ''have'' strings), but's she actually a very sweet girl. [[spoiler:In large part because the soul of Geppetto's late daughter has taken up residence in her, and she was a very nice girl in life.]]

* Case 3 of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Justice For All'' introduces Trilo Quist, who isn't evil, but is pushy, loud-mouthed, and argumentative. He frequently bickers with, and even ''punches'', his meek partner Ben.

* ''{{Karin}}'' gives us "Boogey-kun," the most frequently seen of Anju's dummies/ImaginaryFriends. As the series progresses, it's increasingly implied that Boogey-kun may not be all that imaginary...

* In the children's fantasy novel ''Literature/{{Fablehaven}},'' the witch Muriel has an enchanted, living evil puppet named Mendigo, whom she uses to do her evil bidding (since she herself is bound to a specific hut). She also attempts to use him to gain the trust of the main characters by making him "dance" and "do tricks" for them, but they're all put off by [[NightmareValley how unnatural his movements are.]] [[spoiler: In the second book, he does a HeelFaceTurn and becomes a servant of the good guys. He's still creepy, but he's no longer evil.]]
