* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' opens with a genuinely alarming spectral librarian, who at first appears to be a homely old woman (who responds with a "Shhh!" when they try to speak to her), but who [[GameFace turns scary and horrific when they make a rush at her]]. The video game makes her surprisingly sympathetic: [[spoiler: she was seduced and murdered by a man who would later become Azetlor the Collector, the true "boss" of the Public Library.]]

* In ''Franchise/DragonAge'', Finn may not be an official librarian, but could certainly be considered one given the amount of time he spends in the Circle library. The "scary" part is demonstrated during his first meeting with the Warden, where without any fear at all, he walks up to the heavily armed stranger in the Tower and [[BerserkButton proceed to yell]] at them for [[FelonyMisdemeanor mishandling]] their most [[SeriousBusiness valuable antique books]].

* ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' has a ''crazy'' librarian. If students claimed they returned books but they aren't in the slots, she screeches [[IncrediblyLamePun "Not ACCORDI-ON to me!"]] While playing the accordion awfully.
