* Creator/KarlEdwardWagner's story "More Sinned Against" gives this an especially warped twist. [[spoiler: The victim is an actor and his abused and exploited girlfriend works at a toy manufacturing company. Just think of all those action figures and what kids typically do to them...]]

* In Creator/RobertBloch's "Sweets to the Sweet", CreepyChild Irma makes a voodoo doll of her abusive father, rendering him bedridden and unable to carry out his regular beatings of her. When his equally {{Jerkass}}ish brother figures out what's going on, [[spoiler: she claims the doll's just a bit of candy, and ''bites its head off'' to prove it...]]

* One chapter from ''UruseiYatsura'' has Lum use a clay like substance molded in the shape of Ataru to make him fly across his bedroom. Ataru attempts to use this substance as a voodoo doll against Cherry, but fails since he doesn't have something of Cherry's physical being to make the doll work.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}: Subterranean Animism'', Parsee's "Midnight Anathema Ritual" is derived from the Japanese version. In this case, she's skipped the doll and is trying to pound nails into you directly, but the idea is there. As a result, she's often shown with such dolls in fanart. ** Alice, a character specializing in creative use of dolls, doesn't do this in canon but sometimes does in fanworks.

* In ''LightNovel/AnotherNote'', the SerialKiller's CallingCard is a [[http://omamorifromjapan.blogspot.com/2011/12/wara-ningyo-curses.html wara ningyo]] doll nailed into the wall, much in the way such a doll would be traditionally nailed to a tree to wish harm to whoever was being targeted. This leads to InUniverse speculation that the killer either is Japanese or has a grudge against Japanese people or both. It turns out, however, that the dolls serve as a sort of countdown; the first crime scene has four, then three, two, and Naomi and Rue have to try and stop the last one. [[spoiler: That one ''is'' Rue, or rather Beyond Birthday, though it doesn't go according to plan...and yes, there is a wara ningyo in that room.]]
