* The ''WebVideo/HellsingUltimateAbridged'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsQ61tuU7T8 Christmas special]] has Alucard [[BoomHeadshot killing]] Santa when he visits the Hellsing Manor. It seems like an accident at first, but Integra figures out that Alucard planned this moment right after he takes responsibility for Christmas. Alucard demands she let him have his "''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' moment".

* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' has done this, to varying extents of actually saving the holiday, with its special Crimbo events. Since 2005 Crimbo has needed saving from, in various years, a workers' strike, a takeover by the Queen of Halloween, assimilation by the Crimborg, radiation-induced mutations, the Penguin Mafia, bland and inoffensive corporate culture, a candy trade embargo, a HumongousMecha, heavily-armed bears, rebellious robots, and a turf war between commie reindeer and hippie elves.
