* 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.]] This makes him the AnthropomorphicPersonification of ''[[NatureIsNotNice predators.]]''
