* Beka Cooper in TamoraPierce's ''[[Literature/TortallUniverse Terrier]]'' can hear ghosts that ride on the backs of pigeons. Or possibly snatches of thought (from dead people) that are somehow attached to the pigeons.

* Austin from ''Literature/HollowPlaces'' begins to see apparitions of his dead sister after he uses a 'wishing well' found in an anomalous cave. He's the only person who can see her, though she's shown to be more than a vision through incidents where she opens doors with a touch or communicates through notes that remain even after she disappears.

* ''Film/{{Always}}'': The crazy guy at the abandoned airstrip where Ted takes shelter seems to be able to hear Pete's ghost. Pete tries to use him to send Ted a message to stay away from Dorinda, but the guy only gets about half of it, so instead staying away, Ted thinks he's being told to go after her.

Added DiffLines:

* Throughout Nick Spencer's run on ''ComicBook/UltimateXMen'' several characters are led along by the ghosts of deceased loved ones (Rogue sees Professor X, Havok sees Cyclops, William Stryker Junior sees his father). The implication is that they are [[spoiler:being caused by Apocalypse for some reason]], but the plot [[AbandonedArc was dropped with the change of writers]].

Added DiffLines:

* The first two ''DarkFall'' games play with this. In the first one, Polly and Nigel's surveillance system in the Dowerton hotel mostly just picks up splotches of dark and the occasional distorted voice message, and you can get a pair of ghost-hunting goggles to see how various rooms looked in the past, or occasionally find scrawled messages on walls. In the second, ''Lights Out'', however, an advanced pair of goggles allow you to see and speak to several ghosts in the Fetch Rock Lighthouse, and occasionally ''travel through time'' just by touching photos.
* In ''VideoGame/AmberJourneysBeyond'', Roxy set up a number of CCTV cameras and electromagnetic sensors that can do this to a degree, detecting sound signals and videos of manifestations around the HauntedHouse. The titular AMBER device, however, takes it a step further by allowing you to ''see into the memories'' of ghosts.

** {{Parodied}} in "The Death of Eric Cartman": The other boys get so fed up with [[TokenEvilTeammate Cartman]] that they all start to ignore him, leading him to believe that he's died and become a ghost. [[ButtMonkey Butters]] was LockedOutOfTheLoop, however, and greeted him like normal, leading Cartman to believe that Butters was the only one who could see him.

** They only ever mention a ghost [[NeverSayDie as having been a dead person]] ''twice'' in the series - The Dairy King and Sidney Poindexter. And at least one of the ghosts, Boxed Lunch, was explicitly described as the child of two ghosts rather than a dead person.
*** Desiree, the genie ghost was also described as having died, and the girl with the dragon pendant was, too.
*** A background character from Walker's prison in "Public Enemies" implies that ''all'' ghosts are the spirits of dead people.

* WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls faced a zombie magician, Abracadaver, who was illusionist [[PunnyName Al Lusion]]. He became Abracadaver after a little girl (who strikes an uncanny resemblance to Blossom) made him become imprisoned in an iron maiden.
