* The initial trailer to ''VideoGame/DeadIsland'' showed, in reverse, a family trying to escape from zombies but ending up killed by them. A little girl ends up bitten and ends up biting her father after being zombified. [[NeverTrustATrailer The characters aren't even playable in the game]], though you can find the dead bodies of the parents in the game.



* Philippine legends speak of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiyanak Tiyanak]], a monster made from the spirit of an unborn child. It takes the appearance of an infant to draw in unwary travelers then reverts to its true form to kill its kind-hearted victim.
** Tiyanaks can also be born from babies who've died without being baptized, from aborted fetuses or from babies dying without getting a proper burial.

* In ''VideoGame/TheSims3'', it's possible to have ghost baby. This occurs through either making a ghost sim playable again, or using a ghost potion on a regular sim. If one parent is a ghost, the baby has a 50% chance of being a ghost as well. This trope is subverted, however, as the ghost baby will age normally and eventually "die."

* ''VideoGame/TheSims'':
** Averted in ''VideoGame/TheSims2''. Sims must be at least teenagers to become zombies (University expansion pack) or vampires (Nightlife expansion pack). Vampire Sims can reproduce normally, but the offspring will be human. (Zombie Sims are sterile.)

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Rainbow Dash's cookie prank GoneHorriblyWrong in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E16TwentyEightPranksLater "28 Pranks Later"]] results in the unleashing of a ZombieApocalypse on Ponyville, its victims getting a rainbow-colored smear around their mouths and moving with a ZombieGait while [[Film/ReturnOfTheLivingDead droning for "coooookiiiiies!"]] Among the victims we see? Fillies (the Cutie Mark Crusaders) and even ''foals'' (Pound and Pumpkin Cake). [[spoiler:This is ultimately an InvokedTrope on their part, since the whole Apocalypse was actually a [[MassiveMultiplayerScam Massive Multiplayer Prank]] involving everyone except Rainbow Dash to teach her a lesson about her excessive pranking in the first half of the episode.]]

* ''TabletopGame/WraithTheOblivion'' features the Striplings, a caste of Spectre. In the game, Spectres are ghosts who either lost themselves over time to Oblivion, or met such a violent end that they just wanted it all to go away. The Striplings are Spectres of children who died when they were younger than ten. Even the other Spectres are freaked out by them.
** There's a good reason one ruler in the setting set a law in place that any child wraiths would be made into soulsteel. FateWorseThanDeath? Maybe. But at least that keeps them from being Striplings.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' gives us an Abyssal whose Exaltation ''always'' goes to a 10-year-old girl who is then always renamed Shoat of the Mire. She is the only Abyssal servant of the Deathlord known as The Dowager of the Irreverent Vulgate in Unrent Veils, who has a [[DoomedHometown very specific]] [[OrphanageOfFear process]] of creating her deathknights.
** It's stated that she plans to start turning more children into Abyssal servants as soon as she's certain she's perfected the process of raising them.

** This is based off a chapter from the manga, where Enya Geil's Stand, Justice, turned an entire town into zombies. Including the kids.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has a questgiver NPC in the Eastern Plaguelands named Pamela Redpath, a ghostly girl haunting the ruins of Darrowshire. She's friendly enough, and her quest line starts with a request to find her doll, but eventually ends in players recreating the Battle of Darrowshire to redeem Pamela's father. The girl's plight struck a chord with many players ("[[{{Tearjerker}} I never feel warm anymore]]") and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dTxcHulFBI inspired a quite rocking song]], so after the zone was revamped for the ''Cataclysm'' expansion, players can pick up an item (Pamela's Doll) that [[PetTheDog allows the ghost girl to tag along on their adventures]].

* ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire'' has ghost children in the old Tien's Landing, several of whom are part of sidequests.
** Wild Flower marginally qualifies, since she ''also'' died in the flooding of Tien's Landing. She's alive, though, because Chai Ka [[BackFromTheDead revived her]] to serve as his anchor in the physical world.

* The ''VideoGame/FatalFrame'' series has quite a number of young female ghosts. Possibly the most terrifying are the Shrine Maidens in the third installment, who have the nasty habit of disappearing for a brief time, before reappearing below the camera's normal field of vision and attempting to ''drive stakes into the main character's feet''.
** The second installment features a few children who aren't even aware that they've died yet, and continue their game of hide and seek. Then they drag Mio into it if she happens to encounter them. It also features Crimson Kimono, the only ghost not killed by the Darkness or anything caused by it, but instead by either terror or starvation, and who had the unfortunate opportunity to watch the slaughter from her favorite hiding place.

* Technically speaking, ''WesternAnimation/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.
** 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.

* In ''Literature/TheGuardians'', vampires are forbidden from changing children because while their bodies will be frozen, their minds will age. Worse, they will be driven by BloodLust to have sex with their blood donors.
