* Quite possibly Des and Hugo in ''Literature/VoidDomain''. Des looks like a FrankensteinsMonster. Hugo looks normal, but several characters comment on his unnaturalness. Both are related to the resident mass killer and necromancer, Sawyer.

* ''Film/DarkCity'' had one of [[StarfishAliens The Strangers]] inhabit a dead child's body. It wore black leather, was bald, whisper 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.

to:

* HauntedHouse western ''Film/{{Deadbirds}}'' has the ghosts of a young girl and boy, and they just ''love'' to give a good JumpScare.

** One of the effects of running out of sanity is hearing the voice of babies crying coming from nowhere.



* Even the usually lighthearted {{Pokemon}} series isn't immune to this trope. Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have a couple of [[FreezeFrameBonus blink-and-you'll-miss-it]] moments where the player can glimpse the ghost of a girl behind an NPC during a conversation.
* Throughout ''VideoGame/TheStarshipDamrey'', the player encounters the spirit of a young girl in a sun hat. [[spoiler: Turns out it's actually a subversion, since it's a hologram of the captain's daughter being used in an attempt to dissuade the player from further investigating the ship.]]



* ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryIV'' has Tanya, a little vampire girl who, while not evil, is pretty darn creepy NightmareFuel. One of the main quests involves turning her back into a human and reuniting her with her parents.

* [[CuteGhostGirl Pamela]] in ''VideoGame/ManaKhemiaAlchemistsOfAlRevis'', who joins as a party member. She's definitely on the lighter end of the creepy scale, though she does have her spooky moments.



** Two of the new Necromorph types in ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2'' are infected children. The Pack, Zombies born of children around 10 years old who hunt in, predictably, packs, and The Crawler, similar to Lurkers, but instead of shooting you with barbs, they explode. [[spoiler: Gruesomely demonstrated when an unsuspecting mother calls to her now zombified baby, who hugs her and then violently explodes, smearing the window between you and them with blood]]. The Female Tripod might count as well, as she has a huge tentacle with what appears to be a developed baby/fetus on it and she does appear partly pregnant.

* One of the many spooky EasterEggs in the ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' series is a cradle with a ghost baby inside.
* The third ''VideoGame/{{Thief}}'' game, ''Deadly Shadows'', has the infamous level Robbing the Cradle. It takes place in The Cradle, an [[AbandonedHospital abandoned]] former OrphanageOfFear and BedlamHouse. At one time in the building's horrible history, it was actually both simultaneously. Needless to say, the place is host to the ghosts of children, one of which Garret must help in order to escape.



* In ''VideoGame/The7thGuest'', Stauf's toys [[spoiler:stole the souls of several area children. Their frightened voices can be heard in a cutscene when one of the puzzles in the playroom is solved.]]

* ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'' gives us [[EnfantTerrible violent infant]] ghost Chaunsey, spectral twins Henry and Orville, and the creepy, eternally sleeping little girl Sue Pea. Interestingly, Chauncey is the only one of them who was never alive to begin with, as his bio states he was born a ghost.

** There is also Helgi, a ghost, who died in a house fire. She almost would had the same fate as Babette, but she didn't escape the fire in time.

* In the library level of ''VideoGame/GhostbustersTheVideoGame'', the Ghostbusters come across the Children's Section where disembodied laughter can be heard, handprints can be found with the paragoggles, and a [[NightmareFuel stuffed animal toy moves around on its own]]. When they leave, the echoic voice of a young boy whispers "Bye."

* Likewise, the title character of ''{{Tutenstein}}'', who's basically a more [[JerkAss jerkass-y]] version of Casper.
* In an episode of ''SamuraiJack,'' Jack is lured to a graveyard for a zombie attack. At one point, while Jack is wandering around the graveyard children's laughter can clearly be heard.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wizards}}'' by Ralph Bakshi contains a rare example of a child that was undead to begin with. The film explaining two twins were born to a Sorceress, one being a typical cute child, while the other was...well [[http://blog.trenchcoatsoft.com/images/wizards/blackwolf-baby.jpg take a look yourself]]! Needless to say its not surprising which child was born pure evil.

* Understandably for a children's horror show, this popped up a few times on ''AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'', like the ghost of a little boy who froze to death and [[GhostlyGoals just wanted his coat]].
