* ''TabletopGame/WraithTheOblivion'' gives us poltergeist powers in the form of the Outrage Arcanos, which allows a wraith to affect physical objects, often through brute force, and the Pandemonium Arcanos, which produces creepy reality-warping effects ranging from cold spots to blood on the walls to altered perception of time. The semi-sequel, ''{{Orpheus}}'', gives us the Poltergeist, a Shade (or class of ghost/projector) with a talent for throwing about objects with telekinetic force and boosting the physical capacities of their ectoplasmic bodies.

* In MegamanBattleNetwork, you can get a chip called "Poltergeist" that replicates a poltergeist's common traits by picking every item on the battlefield and flinging them at enemies. It's very deadly if you have enough items on field at once.

* 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. * ''[[http://armorgames.com/play/7195/haunt-the-house Haunt The House]]'' is an indie computer/mobile title which has the players take on the role of a cute little ghost, whose objective is to scare noisy partygoers out of his house so he can get some rest, which he does by possessing objects and making them move or perform a 'scary' action such as belching black ichor or popping skeletons out of drawers.

The Neitherworld medium ([[MST3KMantra just roll with it]]) he and Lydia recruit to get rid of it gets really excited, because poultrygeists can answer any question. [[spoiler: They ultimately get rid of it by asking questions that have no answer... and then 400 more show up.]].
