** Evangeline A.K. [=McDowell=], who was turned into a first-generation vampire at the age of ten. Oddly enough - or perhaps not so oddly when considering the illusion magic she uses - no non protagonist really seems to even notice that she's a child, being terrified of her for [[PersonOfMassDestruction more normal]] reasons. It's also worth noting that she subverts the creepiness part of this, as "undead" seems to merely mean "can't die" in regard to her; she's pretty much physically indistinguishable from a normal child. Anyone who fears her, is afraid for [[PersonOfMassDestruction other reasons]], as mentioned above. Her own telling of her backstory makes her vampirism seem more like a regular [[CursedWithAwesome curse]] cast upon her to make her [[spoiler: kill her family]] than traditional vampirism. And she's creepy because she's had a ''lot'' of practice.

** There's also May from ''Clock Tower 3'', the 12 year-old pianist who was murdered by the first [[ImplacableMan Subordinate]] you meet in the game, Sledgehammer; you have to beat him in order for her to be laid to rest. Then there's the ghosts of children killed by Scissorman in ''Clock Tower'' (2) that sing [[IronicNurseryTune Little John from the Big Castle]].

* ''Franchise/DeadSpace'' has the commonly-encountered Lurker. A low-power enemy that attacks using three tentacles that either spit out some sort of acid projectile or start stabbing into you. The clincher? [[spoiler: They're actually the corpses of infants reanimated and mutated into Necromorphs.]] Appropriate, seeing as how you first see them when [[spoiler: they kill a surviving researcher by impaling his hand to a glass window with projectiles, then blowing his head off.]]

* Used in an unusual fashion in the fan remake of ''VideoGame/KingsQuestII'': [[spoiler: Possum is turned into a vampire together with her dying grandmother by Caldaur. While the grandmother rejuvenates into a hot vampire lady, Possum physically ages into a young woman, though still with the mind of a little girl.]]

* ''VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon'' has a technical example in the form of Alma, who ''was'' technically dead when [[spoiler: Armacham shut down all life support to her chamber while she was in her early twenties]] and takes on the form of a nine year old girl, which was [[spoiler: the age she was when she was sealed in the Vault and put into a coma]]. However, as of the end of the first game, [[spoiler: her "adult" body is free, and Alma has apparently managed to revive it with her psychic powers.]]
* One ''Website/GaiaOnline'' event had a number of angry ghosts emerge from their graves, and the users fought them to send them to the afterlife. Two of these ghosts were CreepyTwins, and another was a little boy who had [[TearJerker died of heatstroke after his parents left him alone in a car on a hot day]] and who [[CursedWithAwesome didn't mind being a ghost]]-- [[WhatTheHellHero but the users did]].

** Babette, who is a [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld three-hundred year old vampire]] who was turned at the age of ten. She gladly uses her form to her advantage as an assassin, pretending to be a harmless, lost, frightened little girl to lure her targets into a false sense of security.
** There is also Helgi, a ghost, who died in a house fire. She would had the same fate as Babette, but she didn't escape the fire in time.

* ''Film/DarkCity'' had one of [spoiler: [[StarfishAliens the Strangers]], Mr. Sleep, inhabit a dead child's body]]. It wore black leather, was bald, whispered to other Strangers, would chatter its teeth while wielding a knife, cut a spiral into a dead hooker, ''and'' gleefully intoned "kill him" when the hero was captured.

** In the original cartoons, it actually ''was'' an aversion, as ghosts in the series [[OurGhostsAreDifferent were more like]] TheFairFolk. It wasn't until later that they started toying with the idea of him being a traditional ghost.


Added DiffLines:

* Presumably, many of the students at ''WesternAnimation/MonsterHigh''. Highlights include a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]], FrankensteinsMonster, [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombie]], and [[OurGhostsAreDifferent a lot of ghosts]], among others.
* It's more of an inference, but seeing as he's [[HybridMonster half]] {{Mummy}} and half [[{{Dhampyr}} vampire]] [[WritersCannotDoMath (although it technically should be a quarter)]], [[BlackAndNerdy Ir]][[NonActionGuy wi]][[CuteMonsterGirl n]] could count. Bonus points for ''very clearly'' depicting his mummy mom as dead and for his grandfather ({{Dracula}}) explicitly saying that he's undead at the beginning of ''Underfist''.

* In ''ComicBook/TheGoon'', when the titular character teams up with [[OurGhoulsAreCreepier The Buzzard]] and makes it impossible for the necromancer BigBad to get corpses to make ordinary zombies out of, he turns to the creation of Mother Corpse; a zombified ExplosiveBreeder who produces an endless swarm of deformed, demonically-empowered zombie babies that the protagonists take to calling "chugheads".

* Technically speaking, ''CasperTheFriendlyGhost''. However, he's [[CaptainObvious friendly]] and [[OurGhostsAreDifferent not really creepy]], so he's almost an aversion. The almost part comes from the fact that he ''still'' manages to scare away most people.
* Likewise, the title character of ''{{Tutenstein}}'', who's basically a more {{Jerk Ass}}-y version of Casper.
