* In ''Videogame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'' Geralt goes to Velen, a war torn region which has this trope in spades. Botched mad science experiments, [[TheFairFolk Godlings]], creepy forests, [[HotWitches an attractive village witch]], a [[WitchDoctor Pellar], superstitious peasants, a [[SwampsAreEvil cursed swamp]] ruled by [[TheWeirdSisters The Ladies of The Wood]], you name it. There isn't a Dracula expy, but there is a [[TheRedBaron Bloody Baron]]. The whole Witcher universe could be considered one giant Uberwald, but none embody so fully as Velen.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Ghost}} is fond of this trope. The video for [[SignatureSong Square Hammer]] revolves around the band attending the premier of a [[ShowWithinAShow film]] shot on location in the real Translyvania with [[FaceOfTheBand Papa Emeritus]] taking the place of Dracula/Orlok.

* Episode "Who's Minding the Monster?" of ''WesternAnimation/TheNewScoobyDooMysteries'' 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.

-->'''Narrator''': Transylvania. In reality, a modern province of Romania. But thanks to [[SelfDepreciation lazy writing in this show]], a terrifying place populated by hunchback peasants and monsters!

* In the 2015 version of ''WesternAnimation/DangerMouse'', Transylvania is portrayed this way in the episode "From Duck to Dawn". Lampshaded by TheNarrator.

Added DiffLines:

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

Added DiffLines:

* ''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]].
