* Henry Cowell's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaIByDlFINk "The Banshee"]] utilizes a technique of plucking and scraping against the strings of a piano in order to mimic a banshee's wail. The piece is also reminiscent of a [[PyschoStrings certain other horror music trope]].

* Likewise, banshees in ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' are straight out of the D&D mold, since Dragonlance was written to popularize a D&D setting. The most noteworthy banshees in that setting are the three former elven clerics who sabotaged Lord Soth's quest to stop the Cataclysm, since they were part of [[CantArgueWithElves the elf supremacist conspiracy]] that led to it, in the belief that they could ''force'' the Gods of Good to empower them to wipe out all evil races. Because of that, they are {{curse}}d to constantly tell the story of how their own blind arrogance led to the destruction of the old world and their own damnation.

* In ''Series/TeenWolf'', [[spoiler: Lydia]] is eventually revealed to be one. This comes with the ability to sense death and a piercing scream although, thus far at least, the scream is more of an extra effective "help someone's trying to kill me!" alert than an attack.

In this universe, banshees scream although, thus far at least, the to drown out noises that might distract them from listening on a psychic wavelength only they can hear. They can also use their scream is more of an extra effective "help someone's trying to kill me!" alert than an attack.purposefully hurt other supernaturals, as fellow banshee Meredith demonstrates later on.

Here we have the ghostly women who originate from CelticMythology. They are usually noted for their voices, which are either [[OneWomanWail hauntingly hypnotic wails]], or blood-curdling screams. Traditionally, hearing a banshee wail is a PortentOfDoom, though this is often SadlyMythtaken for the wail itself being a [[MakeMeWannaShout sonic attack]] or BrownNote that ''causes'' death.

* In ''Literature/ShamanOfTheUndead'', banshees are people who can predict somebody's death and, more often that not, they're also the ones to deliver it. Oddly, wailing not included.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' features a villainous banshee who is one of [[TheFairFolk Oberon's Children]]. She has a small cameo in a second episode when she refuses to answer Oberon's summons; as punishment she's dragged back by the Weird Sisters and gagged indefinitely.
