They are also prominent in Irish legends, where many of the more well-known banshee stories come from, as being a type of fairy typically connected to a single family. Their screams were due to mourning for members of the family who was about to die, which often served to inform others of their loved one's death. There have been stories of banshees haunting families even as late as the 19th Century. And, as often in the original folklore, the fairy woman might be explicitly described as a ghost; TheFairFolk were a little unclear about the edges.

* Banshees show up in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. They're pretty nasty because they're essentially ghostly undead of usually elvish origin whose wail (at least at full power; in at least some editions it has limited uses per day) forces anyone in range to save or die on the spot. The ''Wail of the Banshee'' ''spell'' allows a high-level wizard (or sorcerer in 3rd edition) who knows it to mimic this, although each casting is only good for one such attack.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'', where the Banshee is a ground-attack flyer (with Screamer missiles) with cloaking capabilities. The pilot has a few lines on its namesake.

* The WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters fought Banshee sisters; one was the stereotype, the other could use her voice to hypnotize people.
** It was a trap: The Siren was the carrot, the Banshee the stick. In the episode the banshee & siren could stay young if they stole the youth of humans. So they would use the siren to lure young people in and the banshee would then steal the youth.

In modern fiction, along with the above-mentioned sonic attack, they are usually depicted as purely a type of undead or ghost, without a hint of TheFairFolk. A clue to their origin can be found in their name; ''bean sídhe'' can be translated as "fairy woman".

* Disney's ''Disney/DarbyOGillAndTheLittlePeople'' had a banshee that appeared and wailed to warn that someone was about to die. It also summoned the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_Coach Cóiste-bodhar]] (Death Coach) to take away the soul to the afterlife. It's generally considered a standard-bearer of childhood terror.

* The Doom Howler from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is louder to the [[IncrediblyLamePun tune]] of up to three different screaming-related attacks. The most basic one merely demoralizes the enemy, but the worst can kill huge numbers of people if left uninterrupted.
