* ''VideoGame/UltimaUnderworld'' has ghouls that are technically still alive, but they've turned into the standard flesh-eating-monster (and even look the part) [[SpaceWhaleAesop as a result of cannibalism]]. Which makes them somewhat more like [[TheTimeMachine Morlocks]] or {{Wendigo}}, but everything else fits the "undead ghoul" description.

* In Tanith Lee's ''Tales of the Flat Earth'', ghouls are powerful supernatural beings that appear as beautiful humans and are incredibly gifted at love-making. They are an evil race and enjoy eating humans as a delicacy. Ghouls were a dying race reduced to a mere handful, since they practice incestuous breeding at the brother and sister level. Ghouls can interbreed with humans though the resulting offspring are weaker than a pure ghoul with succeeding generations further degenerating. The mightiest ghouls are nearly indestructible as no spell or physical force can harm them, a way to defeat one is to shine a light at it and then cut out its shadow. Its supernatural nature makes the shadow a corporeal thing and without a shadow, a ghoul is helpless and can be killed with normal means. The entire race meet their end when they annoy the demon princess, Azhriaz the Night's Daughter, who magically seal them within their city and they turn on each other, succumbing eventually to cannibalism or starvation.

* The words "ghoul" and "ghoulish" are often used in ''Franchise/TheHauntedMansion'' as part of the plethora of synonyms of "ghost" used by the ghosts to describe themselves (which also notably includes "creepy creeps"), implying that "ghoul" is just another name for "ghost".

* German poet Robert Gernhardt takes it UpToEleven, his cartoon translating loosely as "They are ghouls - they kill without a sound - but in private, they party hard."

* "Nightmare Merchant", a story from ''Strange Fantasy'' (a pre-[[ComicsCode Code]] horror comic) depicted a cooperative relationship between vampires and ghouls, with the ghoulish "bloodman" delivering bottled blood to suburban vampires, like a milkman.

* Ghouls are common in the post-Big Uneasy world of ''Literature/DanShambleZombiePI'', although less so than zombies, vampires or werewolves. A trio of ghouls work for the medical examiner, and Dan's building manager and the cook at his usual diner are of this Unnatural type. Although they do crave human flesh, ghouls which have appeared in the series are usually (barring the odd "misplaced" medical specimen) content with human-flavored chicken products marketed for monsters.
