* The spooky toaster from ''WebAnimation/NeuroticallyYours'' is the current page image. Foamy bought it from Amityville, and it spits out something different than what you put in; for example, put in white bread, you get wheat toast, and wheat bread becomes pumpernickel toast, and bagels become pork chops. But [[SchmuckBait don't use waffles]], the seller warned of something about toasted human hands.

* The Franchise/{{Pokemon}} [[SdrawkcabName Rotom]], first introduced in ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'', is an Electric/Ghost-type that can possess electronics. It's first found in a TV set, and ''Platinum'' allows it to possess an oven, lawnmower, fridge, washing machine and fan to change its form, moves and (from Gen V onwards) type. ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' kicks it up another notch by having the player's Pokédex be designed to house Rotom, which possesses it and acts as its A.I. Sadly, this form can't actually fight; it merely acts as a FairyCompanion.

* [[spoiler:Subverted]] In ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', where Church and Tex spend most of the series as ghosts possessing robot bodies. [[spoiler:Reconstruction reveals that Church was never really a ghost to begin with, but an AI instead. The same is heavily implied to be true for Tex.]]

It's later revealed that their first bodies were actually unwilling human subjects, Private Jimmy in Church's case. So, yes, when Caboose shot Church with Sheila, he actually did kill someone.]]

** Yet another had a vengeful spirt of a man who died on powerlines feeding into a Wi-Fi signal, meaning he could attack his victims anywhere a signal reached through anything connected to it. This unique situation allowed him to bypass the usual wards.

* In ''literature/HarryPotter'', the Misuse of Muggle Artifacts Office has to deal with some of these. Mainly subverted though, since they're bewitched rather than "haunted", properly speaking. The difference is that bewitched means that the wizard/witch left a part of his magic into it, like an answering machine so to speak. This includes Arthur Weasley's Ford Anglia.

* ''The Cleaning Machine'', a short story by F. Paul Wilson, features a supernatural machine [[spoiler:which makes everyone who goes near it disappear without a trace]]. May not be haunted however- the story never actually explains where it came from, how it got there, or what it is.
