* ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'' features a Goblin Contract (a magical power with negative side effects for the caster) that allows a changeling to summon the Wild Hunt to Earth. This effectively means that the changeling has summoned a hunting pack of [[TheFairFolk his former captors]] into the world, and if they can't find better meat, then the changeling in question better start running...

** ''Elder Scrolls'' [[AllThereInTheManual lore]] also has an ancient [[OurElvesAreDifferent Bosmer]] (Wood Elf) ritual called the Wild Hunt. This calls upon the [[{{Precursors}} Ehlnofey]] to transform them into nightmarish hellspawn and drive intruders from the land, before turning on each other and engaging in what is described as a "[[{{Squick}} cannibalistic orgy]]". Most recently, this ritual was used to end the Five Years War between the Bosmer and the [[CatFolk Khajiit]].

** During ''Literature/DeadBeat'', Harry actually [[spoiler:calls up the Wild Hunt, in an effort to keep them away from the {{Big Bad}}s; when it fails, the Erlking says he'll come back and kill Harry for daring to imprison him. Afterward, though, he's so impressed by Harry's [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome reanimating a T. Rex]] (a "great hunter" itself) and riding it into battle, that he lets Harry live, for now.]]

* The Dark Eldars from ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' modus operandi as TheFairFolk involves this, compared to their Craftworld Eldar cousins. Their raiding/hunting party would pop out of nowhere, blast anything that stands in their way, capture as many slaves as they can, and disappear as quickly before reinforcements can come. Notably, Vulkan stopped their raids on a world theyve been preying upon for generations.

* The UrbanFantasy ''Literature/{{Moonflowers}}'' has the Wild Hunt as the [[TheFairFolk fairy]] antagonists, led by the Hunter who wears either a stag's or an Irish Elk's skull. They've cursed the Asian-American Song family as victims of [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame the Fairy Raid]], a killing spree that happens every seven years on Samhain/Halloween. Recent chapters state that the Hunter's full title is [[CelticMythology the Horned Hunter,]] who is the AnthropomorphicPersonification of ''[[NatureIsNotNice predators.]]''

* The medieval visionary poem ''Draumkvedet'' (''The dream song'') from Norway depicts the ride of Satan as this at the end of the most complete version. It comes from the north, and "rode rather fast", with an entity in front that may or may not be Odin himself (who actually ''was'' the leader of the hunt in pre-christian times). It is, naturally, countered by the ride from the south, led and administered by st. Michael and Christ himself. The hunt comes calling when doomsday approaches.

Also, the Wild Hunt may have been the origin of SantaClaus riding in the sky with his sledge and reindeer delivering presents on Christmas. BadassSanta's not without reason, apparently.
