* One of the theories surrounding the Bell Killer murders in ''VideoGame/MurderedSoulSuspect'' is that some of them are copyright crimes (the revelation that there have been murders following the same MO going back over a century suggesting that even the original killer might be a copycat.) [[spoiler: Turns out that's half-true: Every murder was committed by a different person, but all of them were being possessed by Abigail at the time. Among them are Ronan's brother-in-law Rex, {{Jerkass}} fellow cop Baxter, and even Ronan himself.]]

The Gutter, ripper instead is translated as "lo Squartatore".) Turns out, [[spoiler:itis a girl, the same girl who's been helping Tex fighting the bad guys of the week and also gives a bit of psycho MotiveRant about being disgusted by women who "sell themselves"]].

* In the Britain-themed ''Wisdom'' miniseries by Marvel, one issue has a guy who can summon up things from alternate realities and because he's a Jack the Ripper fanatic, alternate Jack the Rippers keep appearing. Some of which look like bad movie villains, one of which is a riff on ''From Hell,'' one of which is an ape with a straight razor, one of which is apparently a rival prostitute, and one of which is actually Franchise/SherlockHolmes! (The last one was a reference to Michael Dibdin's notoriously trolling crime novel ''The Last Sherlock Holmes Story''.) Most are wearing top hats and capes, of course.
