* During the infamous Satanic Panic of the 1980's, lots of metal bands such as {{Slayer}} and BlackSabbath were accused of hiding Satanic messages in their music via [[SubliminalSeduction backmasking]]. Naturally, if you listen to music backwards, and are trying to hear something, the gibberish will sound like something to you. Today, accusations of backmasking are almost always PlayedForLaughs, though there are still some conspiracy theorists who take them seriously.

* ''CareBears''. One particularly ridiculous example is when the movie was accused of promoting the occult because a character used magic from a talking spellbook. You'd think the fact that ''the spellbook was the villain'' would have given them a clue, but apparently not.

Added DiffLines:

** It doesn't help that a small minority of Aes Sedai historically ''have'' been evil and/or aligned with the Dark One, that the Aes Sedai claim (even to themselves) that they are the one group this ''cannot'' possibly be true of, and that providing enough contrary evidence to perpetuate rumors of the "Black Ajah" - never quite enough to convince the Aes Sedai of their validity - may have been an actual long-term project of the Dark One.

* Website/NotAlwaysRight gives us [[http://notalwaysright.com/this-troll-should-have-stuck-at-home/22365 this customer]], who goes to an hotel during a convention and claims that the trolls from ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'' are demons because they have horns and that anyone cosplaying as them must be a devil worshipper. He also thinks that {{Human Sacrifice}}s will be done at midnight and when he is told that the only thing happening at midnight is a dance, he is quick to twist those words into "A dance with the Devil".

* Parodied in ''WalkHard'', after Dewey Cox sings a pleasant song about holding hands which instantly causes well-behaved teenage boys to turn into violent louts and well-behaved teenage girls to turn into sex-crazed nymphos, the local priest angrily declares the song to be evil. When Dewey protests that it's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin simply a song about holding hands]], he is informed that the [[HitlerAteSugar the Devil also has hands]] "and he uses' 'em for holdin'!"

** [[http://egzorcyzmy.katolik.pl/ezoteryka-dla-przedszkolaczka/?singlepage=1 This article (in Polish)]] argues that the show is actually evil occult propaganda meant to convert kindergarteners to the false Eastern religions. You know how the protagonist is named Twilight? Well, Twilight means [[DarkIsEvil darkness]]. Also, Celestia's white and Luna's black, so obviously they are meant to represent the yin-yang. And a crystal can be seen in one scene, which is no doubt a reference to the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Jewels Three Jewels]] in Buddhism. The article also claims that the fact that there are bad guys in a kids show teaches our kids that [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil good cannot exist without being balanced by evil]]. Which, according to the author, is [[BlatantLies blatant lies]], because "God doesn't need evil to be good, and he's perfect". By such, [[InsaneTrollLogic kids shows should not feature bad guys, to teach kids that the world is only filled with good, because God exists.]] And yes, it's ''all'' apparently 100% serious. Polish articles about religion and cartoons are the best. (The patronizing tone in which it talks about children makes it even worse. It's like the writer is forcibly trying to prove his superiority over children in every sentence.)

* Creator/JackChick thinks ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'' was Satan's first step in getting the occult accepted by mainstream America. Really.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' -- One of the big ones. Certain people have claimed that the game contains [[CriticalResearchFailure "authentic"]] occult rituals and spells. The immortal Creator/JackChick did a whole tract, the [[SnarkBait infamous]] "Dark Dungeons", about fantasy gaming being a gateway to {{Satan}}. This is in spite of the fact that Creator/GaryGygax [[OffendingTheCreatorsOwn was himself a Christian]] -- you'd think portraying demons and devils as bad guys, and angels as good guys, would be an obvious enough clue of his actual stance.

** In the original edition of his anti-''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' (see below) tract "Dark Dungeons", Creator/JackChick claimed that the works of Creator/CSLewis and Creator/JRRTolkien, which ''D&D'' was based on, were... you guessed it. This is hilarious because Mr. Lewis was a professional Christian writer and apologist; one of his more famous works was ''TheScrewtapeLetters'', in which he details the methods for combating Satan's influence, and the ''Narnia'' books are today treated as a [[TheMoralSubstitute Christian substitute]] for ''Harry Potter'' by some parents. Tolkien was also a devout Christian, and was supposedly responsible for Lewis' conversion. However, it's important to note here that Tolkien was a ''Catholic''--Chick (like many fundamentalist Protestants) views Catholicism as not only un-Christian, but a flat-out Satanic deception, frequently using the Catholic Church as the big bogeyman in his tracts and conspiracy theories. Telling Chick that Tolkien was a Catholic, and that he was responsible for Lewis' conversion, would probably only strengthen his negative views of both men's work.
