~ Gaichu from ''VideoGame/ShadowrunReturns Hong Kong'' is a sufferer of the HMHVV(K) virus, which has robbed him of his eyesight, ability to digest anything other than sentient flesh, and his standing as a Red Samurai. However, Gaichu was one of the lucky ones, since he was aware of what happened to him and had the focus to get through it with his psyche relatively intact. When you meet him, Gaichu is a CulturedBadass who cuts up mooks by the dozen in spite of being blind, debates philosophy and poetry and makes delicious human ''sashimi''.

* In Creator/FritzLeiber's ''Literature/FafhrdAndTheGrayMouser'' stories, ghouls are a humanoid race that just so happen to have transparent skin, muscles, and organs, giving them the appearance of [[DemBones animated skeletons]]... oh, and they just so happen to be cannibals too.

Which is because of their own twisted belief that their transparent flesh is a sign of their "enlightened" status and [[WhiteMansBurden they owe it to the "lesser" races to enlighten them as well by transmuting their flesh through digestion]].

* ''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".
