* Class 3-A of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' builds a haunted house (complete with an [[CuteGhostGirl actual ghost]]) for the gigantic, no-holds-barred [[FestivalEpisode festival]] that is Mahorafest. Given that most of the class adores [[AdorablyPrecociousChild Negi]], there's a lot of fighting over who gets to escort him through it.
* ''Anime/DennouCoil'' also featured a kimodameshi competition, made more interesting by the use of digital horrors. It's nice to note that, among the usual monsters, the digital creatures also included TheGreys, Chupacabras and the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flatwoods_monster Flatwoods monster]].
** Also, the ability to ''shoot back''.

* Variety shows on Japanese TV have gotten a ''lot'' of mileage out of sending their hosts or other well-known talents through supposedly haunted buildings.

* ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork 4'' has a VideoGame/{{Boktai}}-based one in the amusement park.



* ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'' includes one that's laughably un-scary to any rational viewer and most of the characters, but frightens Deneb so badly that it causes Yuuto to waste one of his two remaining single-use {{transformation trinket}}s.
** Also had a little chihuahua statue that scared the hell out of Momotaros for some reason.



* In ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'', the cultural festival haunted house was basically a front for a private room where couples could have sex. Unknown to most of the student body, the activities there were videotaped for the later entertainment of the senior class.



* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' features one in ''Endless Eight''.



* ''Damekko Doubutsu'' also did this.



* If it had not been for one of these, the plot of ''Literature/PsychicDetectiveYakumo'' would probably not have either Haruka or Yakumo in it.



* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' features one in ''Endless Eight''.
* {{Invoked}} by name in the eighth ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' game, ''Imperishable Night'': The [[BonusDungeon Extra Stage]] is set up as [[FinalBoss Kaguya]] inviting each of the playable teams to one of these.[[labelnote:note]]Kimodameshi literally translates to "test of the liver", which leads to various liver references in the dialogue; the fan-translation [[{{Woolseyism}} changes them]] to be about "guts" instead.[[/labelnote]]



* ''VisualNovel/DaCapoII'' features an event based on TheSevenMysteries of the school.



* Happens in several routes of ''VisualNovel/AoiShiro''. Yasumi and Nami's routes have them accompany the protagonist (and would be love-interest) Syouko. It also occurs in Kohaku's route but this time Syouko is accompanied by Ayashiro who is just a friend (much to the disappointment of Yasumi and Nami both).
* In ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'', one of the later common route events involves Kyousuke setting up a kimodameshi for the others. The player can choose two of the girls to go with (plus an easter egg option where he goes with Kengo and Masato if you choose to hesitate for long enough), with different dialogue depending on the combination. Either way, the girls will be scared and Riki will be wary but ultimately figure out the tricks - unless you go with [[CoolBigSis Kurugaya]], who will instantly figure out what the 'spooky' things are and end up leading both the girl and Riki by hand.



* In Taketo's route of ''VisualNovel/ClassTripCrush'', the cast participates in a "guts test" staged by their teachers. The protagonist is paired up with Homare, who spends the entire time explaining his observations on the SiblingTriangle going on between the protagonist, Taketo, and Yasuto, to the point that she doesn't have a chance to be scared at all.
