Despite the frightening overtones, Krampus is quite a popular character in the Alpine countries. He brings some harmless "scary" fun to the Christmas season, not unlike what happens at Halloween. He is also not alone as the companion of St. Nicholas. Compare him with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knecht_Ruprecht Knecht Ruprecht,]] a German character who performs a similar role (though more as a stern authority figure than a nasty devil), [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zwarte_Piet Zwarte Piet,]] a Dutch character said to put bad children in a sack and take them to Spain, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perchta the Lady Perchta,]] a female version of Krampus who can either be [[HotAsHell drop-dead gorgeous]] or [[NightmareFuel hideously ugly,]] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pere_Fouettard Père Fouettard]] (Father Whipper), a French version usually depicted as a [[EvilWearsBlack black Santa Claus,]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yule_Lads The Yule Lads,]] a group of 13 Icelandic troll-like beings who historically caused mischief during Christmas, but became more Santa Claus-like in modern times . See also BadSanta, which the Krampus is occasionally portrayed as.

* Comics Alliance did [[http://comicsalliance.com/krampusnacht-original-comic/ a special comic]] in 2016 called ''Krampusnacht'' by Benito Cereno and Chuck Knigge. It tells the story of a man who feared the Krampus all his life, but when Krampus was banned in Austria at the beginning of WW2, he gladly joined the Nazis that enforced the ban. [[spoiler: As he discovers though, Krampus is not bound by human laws, and in this tale, his reputation of going after children is a myth, for children are young and don't understand. Adults, though, are often guilty of murder and bigotry, and are more deserving of the punishment he brings.]]
