* HistoricalDomainCharacter Marie Laveau appears as full-blown villainess in the MarvelUniverse, where she actually possesses the full range of supernatural powers she claimed to have in RealLife.



** Featureed heavily, with the villains using a voodoo cult as part of their protection racket. The episode at least pays lip service to voudon being a genuine religion and that what the villains are doing is a perversion of it.

* ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'' [[ZigZaggedTrope zig-zaggs]] this with the Sons of Samedi. While they milk the image for all it's worth, the Samedi are really just a [[TheCartel drug cartel]] using a Vooodoo gimmick for intimidation and most of their soldiers are stoner college kids only in the gang for the cheap drugs. Mr. Sunshine, the Samedi's [[TheDragon second-in-command]], however, is referred to as a "WitchDoctor" by various characters, uses a VoodooDoll in his boss fight that allows him to [[MindOverMatter toss the protagonist around like a rag doll]] and [[RasputinianDeath keeps getting back up every time he's "killed"]], no matter how many times the Boss shoots him, and ultimately has to be beheaded with his own machete to make him stay dead. [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane And whether his "powers" came from genuine mystical forces or are a result of a drug-induced hallucination is never explained.]]
