An entity often seen in Japanese horror movies is a ghost, usually that of a young woman, with long, stringy black hair [[BlindingBangs that covers her face]], clad in a [[WomanInWhite white burial kimono or shroud]]. Her face itself is often quite ghastly to look upon. She is commonly [[DoesNotLikeShoes barefoot]], if she [[FogFeet has feet at all]]. In some cases, this type of ghost will appear with a pair of [[GhostLights ghostly blue flames]] hovering around her.

* The Korean horror film ''White: The Melody of the Curse'' features one; in this case, the ghost in question has white hair, and is believed by the protagonists to be the vengeful spirit of a K-Pop idol who committed suicide, at least until the end, where it turns out to actually be [[spoiler: the vengeful spirit of the ''backup dancer'' who actually wrote the song, who lashes out at anyone who sings ''her'' song.]]

** Robot Chicken would spoof it again by mocking Sadako's [[TechnologyMarchesOn outdated media format]] in a running sketch throughout the episode. She's shown berating two college guys into watching a HQ upload of her video on YouTube only to get preempted by the cat video they switched to spontaneously taking on its properties (i.e. the cat comes out and mauls them).

* The evolved form of Hanako-san, Hanako Noroino, from ''VideoGame/YokaiWatch'' has messy black hair (though it doesn't cover her face) and a blue tint under her eyes that resembles bags. She curses people often. Hanako Noroino is a {{youkai}}, which also makes her an UndeadChild.

* Kiri Komori of ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' looks the part, having ghost-white skin and long black hair that tends to obscure her eyes.
** While Kiri ''was'' mistaken for a spirit by the ever-cheerful Kafuka, however, she was instead identified as a 'zashiki warashi' or house goblin. Plus, her hair is beautifully straight and not stringy in the slightest once she moves into the school. Probably because Nietzsche starts washing it for her for fanservice purposes.

* The protagonist of ''Literature/{{ghostgirl}}'' is presented as a girl with long, messy black hair, blank white eyes, and tattered clothes in artwork. Charlotte dies in the second chapter and spends the rest of the book in the afterlife. In contrast to other examples, she's the compete opposite of "scary". Charlotte is an awkward, unpopular teenage girl who died choking on a ''gummy bear''.

* Like Orochimaru, Äs Nödt from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' looks like a Stringy-Haired Ghost ''Guy'', with his long, straight black hair and white uniform. He wears a mask that covers his nose and mouth, so the "ghastly face" part might apply.

* S-Ko, the leader of the ghosts possessing Zappa in ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', is an onryo, as well as an obvious ShoutOut to Sadako.
** A popular Fan Theory is that she's the ghost of one of the other characters' girlfriend, [[spoiler: more exactly, Axl's Japanese girlfriend Megumi.]] [[spoiler: WordOfGod says she is... [[{{Jossed}} NOT]].]]

* Videogame/ChampionsOnline has Demoiselle Nocturne. After being murdered by her husband, she returned through his nightmares, ''turned his body inside-out''... and then decided to stay in the mortal realm and become a supervillainess.
** She also began a romance with the evil sorcerer Luther Black, which is disturbing on many levels.

This is actually a [[OurGhostsAreDifferent type of ghost]] known as an ''onryō'', the ghost of a young woman who was [[WomanScorned greatly]] [[RapeAsDrama wronged]] [[StuffedIntoTheFridge by a man]] in life and now [[GhostlyGoals seeks vengeance on the living.]] Usually, the man who actually did the wronging is left untouched by the onryō, unless he's a main character and her anger tends to be directed more at anyone unlucky enough to run into her.
