* 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.)

* The Disney/Pixar movie ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' was about a society of monsters that did this to gather power from the screams of frightened children.
* This is what ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' was in the beginning of his movie, more as a device to maintain his privacy.
* The citizens of Halloween Town in ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' scare people for fun. It's a tradition. The scale of meanness in the scaring varies from harmless (Jack) to sadistic (Oogie Boogie).

* Tatara Kogasa from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' is probably the most harmless non-human in the whole franchise. She's a [[UmbrellaGhost karakasa]] that [[EmotionEater eats surprise]], and she always try to surprise people. However, she's actually pretty bad at it, and will sulk if she fails. [[MrExposition Akyuu]] even suggested to the townspeople to pretend to be surprised just so they won't feel bad seeing her sulking. Other than harmless surprises, she doesn't actually attack any humans at all.
