* ''Series/SeventhHeaven'': The first season had a Halloween episode where 6 of the 7 family members actually go out to celebrate Halloween but Mary (a young Creator/JessicaBiel) makes a point to stay home alone to eat ice cream, have a bath, and dance around the house ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyLw-jt2qrA the scene]] is rather well-known still), stating that "This is the ''only'' evening of the year I can have the house for myself!" (given that they are a family of 7 (later even 9) that also constantly have visitors, that's probably fair). The rest of the episode figured AnAesop where younger sister Lucy initially was scared of a disfigured old man but learned that she shouldn't judge people on their appearance, and he actually had a Heart Of Gold. Catherine Hicks, who played the mother in the series, later said that out of all the 11 years of episodes, this was her favourite one.

* ''WebVideo/TheHappyVideoGameNerd'': Much like the Angry Nerd, Derek likes to review horror-themed games in late October, as well as in May under the same logic as Christmas in July.

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' had its (presumably) first Halloween event, called Halloween Terror. Some characters got new skins of them in costume, others got new highlight intros, some got both, and, well, [[IGotARock everyone got a voiceline, victory pose and a few sprays]]. This was coupled with the highly popular brawl Junkenstien's Revenge, loosely based off of the accompanying comic entitled ''"Junkenstien"'', which it turn was loosely based on {{Frankenstein}}. Whether the event will return in 2017 is yet unknown (the only confirmed event thus far is Summer Games, and that confirmation was necessary considering many thought it was only due to the 2016 Rio Olympics); however, Blizzard loves Halloween, and Halloween is one of the most popular holidays in America, so it's a pretty safe bet that this will become a yearly occurrence.

* WebAnimation/TheAutisticWorldOfTheAutist has a Halloween special which, despite the slightly poor animation, managed to contain some NightmareFuel and the occasional JumpScare.

* ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'' and [[VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon its sequel]] are arguably this for the ''[[SuperMarioBros Mario]]'' series. On a smaller scale, the Ghost House levels that appear in almost every game.

* ''TrintonChronicles'' had a whole arc dedicated to the Halloween season in late 2007; it featured a vampire who sucked on powers (as opposed to blood) who went around turning people into ghouls after sufficiently draining them of their powers and [[CastFromHitPoints life force]]. He was brought down in dramatic flare and fashion by having an [[ShockAndAwe electrified sword]] driven into his chest where he promptly exploded [[DishingOutDirt into sand]]. At the end of the story a huge fireworks display is shown over the city with a good old fashion Happy Halloween scrawled in the sky.
* The ''WhateleyUniverse'' had a big Halloween spectacular for the fall of 2006 (Whateley time), when everyone dressed in fun costumes (Phase ''hated'' his)... and the campus was attacked by cyborgs, robots, and dropships full of Syndicate badguys. It ended up taking three full stories to wrap it up. {{Fanon}} has speculated on what might happen at Halloween 2007.
