* Done in Uzumaki as a part of its spiral motif. A StalkerWithACrush for the protagonist is likened to one because he keeps jumping out at her. He is later taunted by a sinister hallucination of his jack-in-the-box and attempts to prove his love by trying to stop a car with his body. When they check his grave his corpse comes to life and jumps after before its rotted legs break off and he starts bouncing with a suspension spring that had wedged into his midsection.

* A "Killer Jack-in-the-Box" was but one of the ghouls in Ride/UniversalStudios' former ''Theatre/GhostbustersSpooktacular'' attraction. Like his spectral cohorts, he was designed by [[KillerKlownsFromOuterSpace the Chiodo Brothers]], and became a character in his own right in one of Universal's Theatre/HalloweenHorrorNights stories.

* One was used as the "mascot" for Ride/BuschGardens' Theatre/HowlOScream in 2005; [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibq3k0t6kiM the commercial]] for the event that year had the memorable imagery of its crank turning on its own while blood seeped out from underneath.

Added DiffLines:

* Played for laughs in ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombat3 Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3]]'' (as well as ''Trilogy''), where some of the ninjas' Friendships consist of cranking up jacks-in-the-box for their opponent, which gets scared and runs off. Each jack-in-the-box is appropriate to whichever ninja you use; as such, Reptile's is a snake, and Scorpion's is a skull.
