* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' works of Creator/AAPessimal, Johanna Smith-Rhodes has temporarily retired from active Assassination to raise a family. Her olderst daughter Rebecka, practically from birth, showed signs of having magic - the fact her father is wizard Ponder Stibbons practically sealed the deal here. Bekki discovers, at the age of nine, that her family take a proud interest in her, as the first magic-user in a family that has hitherto not really selected for magical ability. The drawback is that the family members who are most proud of this are not, conventionally speaking, alive. Previous generations of the Smith-Rhodes family - to be more exact, every ancestor who has ever carried the name Johanna Smith-Rhodes[[note]]There are four deceased Johannas going back to the founding of the Family[[/note]] - wants to speak to her. The Ancestors become, sort of, spirit guides to Rebecka, and pop up (singly or together) frequently in her life. Usually if there's a crisis brewing, such as Rebecka's mother ignoring those funny little pains she gets in her chest now and again. The great-aunt who ''did'' die of heart failure gets Bekki to do something about this, as she fears Bekki's mother will carry on hoping the pains will go away - until one day, they ''do''.

* In ''VideoGame/TheDarksideDetective'', one chapter features a boy who can see and hear ghosts. The protagonist temporarily acquires the ability as well (and it becomes a running gag that he has to keep stopping to explain what's going on to his sidekick, who has no idea why he's suddenly holding conversations with thin air).

* In ''TheLostCrown'', Nigel encounters [[spoiler: the Karswells]] without realizing they're ghosts until afterwards, and later deduces that [[spoiler: Nancy and Timmy]] are as well. In the latter case, Mr. Russett could sense their presence, but couldn't see them like Nigel could. It's obliquely implied that [[spoiler: the Vicar]] is a ghost as well, but Nigel apparently doesn't catch on to that one.
