* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters''. Here, the Ghostbusters ''owned'' the haunted technology, which took the form of skeletal gadgets with anthropomorphic features and let those ghosts live with them. Most famous was the Ansabone, which always hung up on callers or had some wisecracks when they succeeded in leaving a message.

* A common problem in the world of ''ExterminatusNow'', due to the existence of Fernex, Dark God of Technology, whose techno-daemons can possess machinery. Toasters, in fact, are considered perfect for this, and the Inquisitors have to destroy their possessed toasters on a regular basis. Other items have included calculators and an original X-Box.
* ''FullFrontalNerdity'' parodied Creator/StephenKing's fondness for this trope by having the gamers play "Stephen King: The RPG". The GM rolled on a table to determine what the possessed item was and how it killed people. The players ended up fighting a possessed radio that drank blood.

** I'm [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-426 SCP-426]]. At first glance, I look just like an ordinary toaster. However anyone who's been in my presence for more than two months will start to identify as a toaster as well. They'll attempt to emulate my standard functions, often with fatal consequences, such as gorging themselves on bread until their stomachs burst. [[PaintingTheMedium Also, no one is able to refer to me in the third person]].
