* For a show about anthropomorphic talking animals ''WesternAnimation/TheRaccoons'' is a fan of this trope. Every episode with monsters, cryptids or haunted houses will end with a rational explanation behind or a hoax. It seems that no supernatural creature exists in the Raccoon's universe… aside from talking animals.

* ''Series/BeverlyHillbillies'': "The Ghost of Clampett Castle" had Mr. Drysdale try to scare Granny away from the Clampett's English castle and back to California. He imitates the "Ghost of Lady Clampett" in the attempt. It backfires when Granny goes after the ghost, shooting the "ghost" in the backside with rock salt and bacon rind. However, Mr. Drysdale disguised as a ghost (moaning from his injury!) manages to scare Jethro Bodine so much that the Clampetts leave for his sake.

* ''WesternAnimation/BuBumLaStradaVersoCasa'': Episode 18 resolves around an old mill that, according to the local villagers, is haunted.

When the Germans threaten to investigate the mill anyway, Bu-Bum and his friends disguise themselves as ghosts to help the mill owner enforce the rumor and chase the Germans away.

* The Literature/AgentPendergast novels usually start with a murder that has some supernatural element surrounding it. Often, there is something distinctly unnatural going on, but the villain is almost always human. The two straightest examples are ''Literature/{{Brimstone}}'' and ''Literature/CemeteryDance'', which are practically DarkerAndEdgier.
