* HauntedHouse / [[HauntedCastle Castle]]: There are Arcanoi devoted to hijinks you can use on [[Film/{{Beetlejuice}} people who mess with your former home.]]

* HumansAreBastards and/or {{Tearjerker}}: ''Charnel Houses of Europe: The Shoah'' deals with Wraiths spawned from the Holocaust. There's no "BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy" here; humans are perfectly capable of atrocities on their own. It is considered by some to be the single darkest sourcebook White Wolf has ever released. While many titles in the Black Dog line were simply RatedMForMoney, this one truly is ''not'' for the faint of heart.

Added DiffLines:

* MemoryJar: We get the Mnemoi and their Arcanos, Mnemosynis, the sole purpose of which is to transfer and manipulate memories. In a place where memories are important for maintaining one's existence, the Mnemoi are far from welcome, and are therefore one of the three Forbidden Guilds. [[spoiler: In actuality, the Mnemoi are using their talents to store the memories of Charon for [[RightfulKingReturns his return]], and the whole persecuted thing [[FakeDefector is a ruse]]. One that, sadly, works a bit too well in the end.]]

* [[RecycledInSpace Recycled IN DEATH!]]: ''Wraith: [-THE GREAT WAR!-]'' (one of the very few games of any medium based on WorldWarOne) and ''Dark Kingdom of Jade'' (Wraiths [-OF THE EAST!-]) There were actually several Dark Kingdoms based on different cultures, but Jade is the only one that got its own book; the rest of the non-North American/European kingdoms were detailed in the ''Wraith Player's Guide''.

** The {{Splatbook}} ''Pardoners and Puppeteers'' has a spirit modelled on Creator/JimHenson. He is, of course, a Puppeteer.

Added DiffLines:

* AfterlifeAntechamber: The Underworld is ultimately this. It takes a very specific balance of hope and despair, attachment to life and angst, to turn someone into a Wraith. Most people never get there (they either move straight on to whatever lies beyond, or they're instantly consumed by Oblivion) and Wraiths who Transcend move on to someplace else. Whatever it is other than Oblivion that can be Transcended to (or ''into'') isn't elaborated on but is generally accepted to be an unquestionable "good end".

Added DiffLines:

* HopelessWar: Stygia's war against the [[FarEast Dark Kingdom of Jade]], which pits the ghosts of the Western world against the even bleaker tyranny of the first and greatest of the Chinese emperors, who now rules all the dead of Asia in death as he ruled the living in life.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Wraith was one of the OldWorldOfDarkness' less popular titles, and this criticism was frequently leveled at it. It even extends in universe. Many a wraith can easily fall to Oblivion through simple despair.

** [[PlayingWithATrope Played With]] -- And yet, as many fans loved to point out, it was weirdly the most hopeful of the settings. Managing to resolve your fetters and passions, thus ascending out of the Shadowlands was a very attainable goal, putting it way ahead of the all but impossible existential goals from [[TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade Vampire]] and [[TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse Werewolf]], the at-the-very-least highly unlikely goals of [[TabletopGame/MageTheAscension Mage]], or the no-kidding-you're-screwed-no-way-out nihilism of [[ChangelingTheDreaming Changeling]].

* EscapedFromHell: Characters can under certain circumstances claw their way back into the lands of the living as Risen. Even though they just reek of ''Franchise/TheCrow'', the white face paint is not obligatory.
