* ''Webcomic/GrimTrigger'' World of Duel could certainly count as this. The opening screen also plays ''Deșteaptă-te, române'', if it weren't obvious already.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' did almost the same joke with their short "Draculee, Draculaa" -- the Warners were trying to visit ''Pencil''vania, their ancestral home. (They're cartoon characters, hence their ancestors were pencils.) Of course they meet Dracula, and of course [[TooSpicyForYogSothoth they end up driving him crazy]].

* Episode "Who's Minding the Monster?" of ''WesternAnimation/TheScoobyDooAndScrappyDooShow'' has the team traveling to this trope's version of Transylvania where the local population is scared for the roaming of the Frankenstein Monster, reason why they end up working as babysitters for the Draculas in the Frankenstein Castle (although the RealLife Frankenstein Castle is in Germany, mind you). Also Dracula's son is a werewolf, not a vampire, making this episode an example of Überwald, MonsterMash and CreepyFamily episode all together.

* Miir, The City of Shadows from ''TheTaleOfGavenMorren,'' has more than a few Überwald leanings.

* Lupusville in ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' (a town founded by werewolves and then taken over by vampires) is like this. The ghostbusters also visit Transylvania itself in episode "Transylvanian Homesick Blues" hire by the local (and not evil) vampire lord.

* Lupusville in ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' (a has several examples:
** Lupusville, a
town founded by werewolves and (and then taken over by vampires) is like this. The ghostbusters also this.
** Boldavia (a fictional country said to be part of what was once Transylvania) that they
visit Transylvania itself in episode "Transylvanian Homesick Blues" hire after they are hired by the local (and not evil) vampire lord.

* Dracula's domain in of Resurréction in ''ComicBook/RequiemChevalierVampire'' is like this and it's ruled by vampires. It helps that Resurréction is meant to be {{hell}}.

* Transylvania is depicted as such in the Scooby Doo movie ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheReluctantWerewolf'', apparently ruled by Dracula himself and with a very apathetic peasant population.
* Transylvania in ''WesternAnimation/LaffALympics'' also fits the trope. It's even presented as inhabited by ghouls.

* The Immortal Principality of Ustalav in the ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' setting of Golarion. This realm has Varisians (UsefulNotes/{{Roma|ni}}) as the primary human ethnic group, a [[OurLichesAreDifferent Lich]] (as in, TheUndead) serving as its ruler for a few centuries in its past, and features vampires, lycanthropes, mad scientists, ghosts, and evil cults. Except for the County of Versex, which is more in line with LovecraftCountry (so, [[CosmicHorrorStory not really an improvement]]).

Not surprisingly, it serves as the setting for ''Carrion Crown'' the gothic horror Adventure Path.

* Sylvania in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', ruled for centuries by the Von Carstein bloodline, is considered [[TheDungAges remarkably backwards]] even by the standards of the [[CrapsackWorld Old World]]. It has many charming traditions, such as burying the dead face down so that if they start digging they won't be able to run ([[ZombieGait well, shamble]]) around the place.
** It doesn't work...

place. Not that it works, mind.



* In ''VideoGame/TotalWarWarhammer'', having a high level of Vampiric Corruption in a province causes it to turn from a lush {{Arcadia}} into this trope. The trees wither as the forests become haunted, crops fail as the soil goes black with blight, green balefires begin to dot the landscape, and screams of terror and anguish can be heard as you zoom in closer.

''Überwald'' (spelled with an umlaut or as "Ueberwald" for those lacking a German keyboard), is [[TropeNamers named after]] the Literature/{{Discworld}} country; there is also an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%9Cberwald Überwald]] region in UsefulNotes/{{Germany}}, located within the Odenwald region where the eponymous Frankenstein castle resides. A direct translation would be "Over Forest" or perhaps "[[WhenTreesAttack Super Woods]]", yet the word is a German translation of ''"Transylvania"'' (a.k.a. Transsylvania in some spellings), "trans silvania" being Latin for "beyond the forest". Since medieval times, Transylvania has been home to three major population groups - Romanians, Hungarians (Székely), and Germans ("Siebenbürgen Saxons"), and thus most towns and places come with a German, Hungarian and Romanian name attached. Originally, it belonged to UsefulNotes/{{Hungary}}, up until World War I, and it had a lot of German settlers. In the treaty of Trianon it was transferred to UsefulNotes/{{Romania}} (the Hungarian name of Transylvania is ''Erdély'', coming from ''Erdő-elve'' meaning the same thing as the Latin; the Romanian is either the more traditional ''Ardeal'' or just ''Transilvania'').
