* The Genesis/Mega Drive features ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haunting_%28video_game%29 Haunting]],'' a comedy-horror game where you play as a poltergeist named Polterguy. You're actually the ghost of a punk teen killed by a defective skateboard and your objective is to terrify the negligent CEO (and his family) until he learns his lesson, mostly by possessing objects in the house and making them do grotesque things, or sometimes simply making them fly around.

* In the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series, a poltergeist named Peeves inhabits Hogwarts Castle. Unlike the other ghosts, he's a spirit of chaos rather than the echo of a person - it's AllThereInTheManual that he "came with the building". The CrustyCaretaker considers him a mortal enemy, while everyone else just thinks he's a bit of a nuisance. The only people who can control him to any extent are Dumbledore and the Bloody Baron (Slytherin House's ghost).
** Peeves is fairly unique among poltergeists in that he has a physical form. Rowling [[AllThereInTheManual states]] that Peeves is an extremely powerful and ancient poltergeist, since a poltergeist is born from adolescent angst and uncontrolled magic and Hogwarts is a thousand-year-old school containing young wizards.

* In ''Discworld/ReaperMan'' Death is forced into retirement, causing a whole lot of spirit activity to start manifesting through out Ankh-Morpork (and probably elsewhere as well).

* In the ''OddThomas'' series, a very few particularly strong ghosts have been observed to cause poltergeist activity when they get riled up enough. One notable example is FrankSinatra.

* What's seems to be a Poltergeist (and mentioned as such by name) affects the MIB headquarters in the HalloweenEpisode of ''WesternAnimationMenInBlack''. As the show is sci-fi it turns out the Poltergeist was caused by an interdimensional alien life form.

* In episode "Los espíritus chocarreros" of ''Series/ElChavoDelOcho'': Doña Clotilde blames the strange appearance and disappearance of objects in Vecindad to "Espíritus Chocarreros" (roughly translated as "mischievous spirits" i.e. Poltergeists). It was actually Don Ramon's during sleep walking, but no one knew that. The spiritualist session that follows in order to communicate with the spirits made this one of the funniest and fan-favorite episodes of the show.
