* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' has some sirens in an episode that takes Huey, Dewey, Louie and Scrooge back to Odysseus' times. They look odd, but on the other hand, [[EnforcedTrope how would you do bird-women when your cast is already made of ducks?]]

* A case of MaybeMagicMaybeMundane occurs in ''Film/TheWickerMan''. Willow dances naked in the room next to Howie's, slapping the wall between them and singing to him. The staunchly Christian Howie is literally trembling with desire, but doesn't succumb.

Sirens are enthralling creatures who lure victims to them through supernatural means. They lure these people to their doom, though not ''necessarily'' immediate death. In some versions their powers only work on men or people attracted to women. This detail is somewhat NewerThanTheyThink (for example, Princess Ariadne is killed by sirens in some versions of the myth.)

* A number of insect-predators make use of EnthrallingSiren tactics (Batesian-Wallacian mimicry)to lure prey, from female ''Photuris'' fireflies imitating the light-flash patterns of other firefly species' mating displays to ''Mastophora'' spiders' release of pheromones that mimic the sexual attractants of moths. The katydid ''Chlorobalius leucoviridis'' even uses a CompellingVoice for this purpose, by imitating the clicking sounds of courting cicadas to attract its lunch.
