** The ''Histories and Lore'' bonus material explains that Harrenhal has always had a sinister repute and that every family to hold it has met with misfortune. This holds mostly true even in the present day: Janos Slynt was banished and later executed, Locke had his neck broken by a Bran-controlled Hodor, Gregor Clegane was gravely wounded (it is unclear if the show's version was brought back from the dead as Ser Robert Strong apparently was or merely returned from the brink), Robb Stark, Tywin Lannister, and Roose Bolton were murdered, Only Littlefinger remains unscathed.

** The Riverlands are home to Harrenhal, a castle built by the Ironborn during their occupation of the region. Though now a ruin, it remains the largest castle built in Westeros, but the day it was completed, the Targaryens invaded and roasted the Ironborn royal family inside. The ''Histories and Lore'' bonus material explains that Harrenhal has always had a sinister repute and that since then every family to hold it has met with misfortune. This holds mostly true even in the present day: Janos Slynt was banished and later executed, Locke had his neck broken by a Bran-controlled Hodor, Gregor Clegane was gravely wounded (it is unclear if the show's version was brought back from the dead as Ser Robert Strong apparently was or merely returned from the brink), Robb Stark, Tywin Lannister, and Roose Bolton were murdered, murdered.

* Castle [=McDuck=] in Disney's ''DonaldDuck'' and ''Uncle Scrooge'' comics: When first introduced in Creator/CarlBarks' "The Old Castle's Secret," it was purportedly haunted by the ghost of Sir Quackly [=McDuck=], who sealed himself in its walls along with a chest full of treasure. In Creator/DonRosa's comics, it's apparently haunted by every member of the [=McDuck=] clan, who watch over their descendants and help scare off enemies; Sir Quackly is the one who shows himself the most often. There was also a ScoobyDooHoax launched by their rival clan the Whiskervilles involving a ghostly hound.

* Baufort Castle in the ''ComicBook/JohanAndPeewit'' comic book story "The War Of The Seven Springs" (and its AnimatedAdaptation counterpart "The Haunted Castle") is haunted by its ancestor Aldebert Baufort, because he had caused the seven springs surrounding his castle to dry up due to his selfish desire for more wine to drink, and thus is BarredFromTheAfterlife until the seven springs are restored and a true Baufort descendant who carries the family seal comes to reclaim the castle.

* The neo-Gothic Wyrdhurst Hall in ''[[AuntDimity Aunt Dimity Beats the Devil]]''. It comes complete with local villagers who tell visitors the place is haunted.
* [[AwesomeButImpractical Harrenhal]] has this reputation in ''ASongOfIceAndFire'', partially because the Targaryens used dragons to roast the castle's holders alive centuries ago, and partially because most of the people who hold the castle end up [[TheMillstone experiencing acute misfortune]] ([[spoiler:Janos Slynt got sent up to join the Night's Watch, Amory Lorch got thrown in the bear pit when the castle was taken, Vargo Hoat had his limbs chopped off and ''fed to him'' by Gregor Clegane, and so on: and, these are just the newest]]). There are tales of the ghost of Harren the Black and his sons roaming the castle, looking like charred corpses. Not to mention whatever House Lothston as a whole managed to do while living in it to ''still'' get used as scary stories to get children across the Riverlands into staying indoors when it starts to get dark for fear of what could come out of the castle. They've been extinct for decades by the start of the series, but it left a mark.

On a foggy mountain peak in a [[{{Uberwald}} spooky land]] looms the '''Haunted Castle''' -- and who knows what manner of beast lurks within its walls? It could be [[OurVampiresAreDifferent some sort of vampire]], FrankensteinsMonster, the MadScientist, the WolfMan, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking or even]] WesternAnimation/BugsBunny. Or maybe [[MonsterMash all of them at once]].
