* ''Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony'': A [[Myth/SlavicMythology rusalka]] (a ponified Slavic mermaid), whose singing hypnotizes ponies into dancing with it to alleviate its loneliness, appears in a side story. This dance tends to lead to the ponies’ deaths, either through exhaustion or when the rusalka kills them on a whim.

* One episode of ''AmericanDragonJakeLong'' features a mind-controlling siren as a villain, but she doesn't spend any time in or near the ocean. It also subverts expectations because the siren [[spoiler:is a dowdy, geeky girl, not one of the hot cheerleaders that the characters had suspected]].

* {{iamamiwhoami}}'s entire [[ConceptVideo premise]] is built around the concept of the siren song of a mandrake or mandragora. The title of preview video "13.1.14.4.18.1.7.15.18.1.1110" decodes to "mandragora", and the enchanting song aspect is most prominently in "b", "u-1", and "u-2".

* The character Seawrack in GeneWolfe's novel "On Blue's Waters" is referred to as a Siren by Krait. This being a Gene Wolfe novel, and Krait being an in-universe unreliable narrator, it is never clear how well defined this attribution is. However, her singing interferes with normal rational mediation of desire and action and carries sub-audibly over vast distances. As well she is capable of living on and under water indefinitely, so siren seems a fair designation.
