Often the foil of the ReluctantMonster. Compare to the NobleDemon, who is a more serious version of this. Shouldn't be confused with the ''real'' [[ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight Bogeyman.]] Not to be confused with the actually scary PeekABooCorpse.

* The [[http://www.wowhead.com/npc=45704 Lurking Tempest]] from the Vortex Pinnacle dungeon in WoW. It pretends to be dead when you're facing it, then pops up and flings lightning bolts when you're not.

* Any and all ghosts in ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters.''
''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters'' dabble into this from time to time, though Prime Evil's gang despise the harmless scare part and the ghosts who embody this fully. And unfortunately, that lasts only [[NotSoHarmlessVillain until they get into]] brainwashing, attempted mass murder, zombie-making bombs,[[NeverSayDie ghost-making]] gasses, the list goes on...

* Squidge the Bogey from ''TalesOfTheQuestor''. It's implied that his people have an entire culture/economy based around scaring children and extorting food and trinkets out of them.

* Spend too long in the Krypt in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'', and the Krypt Monster will appear; he's an ''ugly'' looking guy, but all he does is scare the player and run away. He sometimes even leaves a few Koins.

** In ''[[VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon the sequel]]'' Gold Greenies are like the Blue ghosts in the first game. (Except the two that come out of the hockey goal in the fourth mansion, which ''do'' attack.)

* The normal species of ghosts that hang from the ceiling in ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion''. All they do is drop down to scare Luigi, and then vanish. (However, there is a subspecies that attacks with bombs.)
