* ''Podcast/TheMagnusArchives'' is narrated by the archivist of an institute dedicated to academic research into the paranormal. He works through the archive of statements people have given about alleged experiences, and he and his assistants investigate those they can. Many in the Magnus Institute, however, prefer ivory-tower academia to the legwork of actual investigation, and they like think of themselves as serious scholars rather than silly ghost-hunters. Conversely, other paranormal investigators regard the Institute as a joke.

* ''Manga/GhostTalkersDaydream'': [[WhiteHairedPrettyGirl Misaki]] [[{{Dominatrix}} Saiki]] has had the ability to see spirits, since childhood, and eventually learned she was a medium[[note]]a spiritual conduit by which the deceased can communicate with the living[[/note]]. As such, spirits are naturally drawn to her. She doesn't have a firm of her own, so she accepts assignments from the Livelihood Preservation Group, as an exorcist. But she mainly does it so the spirit in question will move on [[ReluctantHero and leave her alone.]]

* The Blue Clan, Scepter 4 in ''Anime/{{K}}'' is a supernatural police division, tasked with cases involving Strains, the series' rogue supers. Inverted in that the main character is an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent who's been framed for a murder, on the run with both Scepter 4 and the Red Clan after him. A lot of the side materials have them clashing ([[FoeRomanceSubtext in more ways than one]])with the Red Clan, who are essentially a superpowered street gang.

* ''Series/DestinationTruth'': A "reality" TV series. Usually half of the episode segments feature a haunting investigation while the rest deal with cryptids. In an effort to distinguish itself from other paranormal shows like ''Series/GhostHunters'' or ''Series/GhostAdventures'', ''Destination Truth'' focuses investigating more exotic and interesting locations like the Great Wall of China or the Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia.
* Other "reality" TV series include:
** ''Series/TheDeadFiles'', whose spin is that a medium reads the site of the haunting and a detective investigates the history of the site and the clients, and then combine their findings during the reveal to the client(s).
** The aforementioned ''Series/GhostAdventures'' and its SpinOff ''Paranormal Challenge'' on the Travel Channel.
