A stock trick in any HollywoodVoodoo practitioner's arsenal is the Voodoo Doll, a tiny figurine created to vaguely resemble another person (sometimes using that person's hair or blood) which is then tormented in various ways, such as by being held over a fire or jabbed with needles. [[SympatheticMagic As the doll is damaged, so is the person connected to it]], making it a wonderful long-range [[ColdBloodedTorture means of revenge]].

* 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...]]

* 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.
