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]] 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.

* The ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' oneshot ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9954253/1/Knows-if-You-ve-Been-Naughty Knows If You've Been Naughty]]'' features Krampus coming after Gaz after she shows some particularly nasty Christmas behavior. He assaults her with a switch beating, as per the tradition, and then proceeds to [[spoiler: abduct her to the North Pole, where she's [[KarmicTransformation transformed and brainwashed to serve as one of Santa's elves, making presents for nicer children for the rest of her life]].]] In some twists on the original folklore, he's shown not as a demon but as a man who's an inverted Santa Claus, being rail thin and all in black; he notably states that he does ''not'' eat naughty children (in fact, he's vegetarian); and he and Santa actually appear to be close friends.

* In ''Krampus: The Yule Lord'' (by Brom, mainly know for his Fantasy paintings), the plot revolves around a feud between Santa and Krampus. The two are depicted as a bit more morally ambiguous in this tale.

* The fanfiction ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' comic series, ''Chibi Prussia'', has a Christmas story arc where [[http://arkham-insanity.deviantart.com/art/Chibi-Prussia-Diaries-031-274302666 a young Hungary warns Prussia]] that Krumpas will come for him because of his naughtiness. HilarityEnsues as a terrified Prussia tries to defend himself from Krumpas [[spoiler:and ends up tackling Germania to the ground as Hungary and Austria have a laugh.]] It comes to a rather amusing end as [[spoiler:[[http://arkham-insanity.deviantart.com/art/Chibi-Prussia-Diaries-036-275475957 the real Krampus]] passes over punishing Prussia since Germania's already spanking him, then carries off Hungary and Austria for being naughty and scaring Prussia.]]

-->'''Dante:''' Maybe it would have been a good idea… A guy like this might have convinced kids to behave more than Santa threatening to leave coal in their stockings.

* In 2013, the ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'' featured a Christmastime event that allowed players to face off against Krampus demons wandering the various combat zones throughout the world. Should the player succeed in killing one of them while they [[CowardlyBoss attempt to escape through a portal]], they are given a route into the Krampus' home dimension of Niflheim. Yes, ''that'' [[NorseMythology Niflheim]]. There, the player can battle an entire army of Krampus, along with a much larger boss Krampus, before finally duelling the mother of all Krampus, Hel herself.
