* ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple:'' Kii Kagerou. Unusually pale skin, scraggly hair, and wears all black. He seems to miss out on the sunken eyes mostly because his face is so flat. If anything it makes him even more unnerving.

* In the ''LightNovel/VampireHunterD'' novels ''Cesare'' is actually a term used to describe one particular type of servant of the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Nobility]] - a human who has been given the "kiss" of the Noble without having all their blood drained away, resulting in a servant who utterly lack free will, reminiscent [[OurGhoulsAreCreepier the ghouls]] of some other vampire stories, and naturally looks like the TropeNamer.

* The original example is, [[CaptainObvious of course]], [[ShapedLikeItself Cesare]], Conrad Veidt's BrainwashedAndCrazy sleepwalker character from ''Film/TheCabinetOfDrCaligari'', a silent film made in 1919 Germany. Interestingly enough, he is specifically stated in the shooting script to be wearing makeup ''in-story'' to achieve the effect.
** However, it should be noted that the archetype of a skinny, pale skinned, ill looking character all dressed in black can be found already in romantic literature of the 19th century (generally as a [[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghost]] or a LivingMemory).

** Even Lydia Deetz of ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}'' has a touch of this trope. She's an EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette to start with, her hair is worn in a peculiar updo that defies gravity and frizzes out all over the place, and her eyes are a bit sunken. That last part is particularly noticeable when she's wearing her big black hat.
*** In the [[WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}} cartoon]], though, she just wears a lot of eye makeup.

* The Joker was based upon the silent film version of ''TheManWhoLaughs.'' The actor portraying title character in ''that'' movie also played Cesare. So, it's hardly coincidence that the Joker is often given Cesare's dark, sunken-in eyelids.

* Roose Bolton from Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire.
* Mary Shelley probably intended the monster in ''Literature/{{Frankenstein}}'' to look a good deal this way; she describes him with pale skin, blank eyes, dark flowing hair, and "straight black lips." Since ''The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari'' was at least in part inspired by ''Frankenstein'', that film was arguably the first faithful adaptation of Shelley's vision.
