* 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]].

* Castle [=McDuck=] in Disney's ''DonaldDuck'' and ''Uncle Scrooge'' comics: When first introduced in 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.
