If you can think of something, there's probably a B-grade horror movie about it trying to kill a bunch of people. You name it. Snowmen, ice cream men, [[BadSanta Santa Claus]], [[DepravedDentist dentists]], [[MonsterClown clowns]], [[CreepyDoll dolls]], trucks, boats, lifts, chairs, [[AIIsACrapshoot computers]], [[TheMostDangerousVideoGame video games]], clocks, toilets, vacuum cleaners, laundry machines (three of these, actually), condoms, [[KillerRabbit rabbits]], [[RodentsOfUnusualSize rats]], [[CrushKillDestroy robots]], birds, bees, ticks, sharks, barracudas, flying fish, eggs, tires, tomatoes ([[AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes four-movie series]] with a remake in the works), pieces of dry toast, leprechauns, triffids, frogs, snails, puppy dog tails... and anything that you're not usually scared of.

At the very least, if there's not a horror movie based around it, there's surely a horror short story or episode of an anthology horror series about it.

A caveat: if it's a killer animal, there's about a 70% chance that it'll also be giant. If it grows too large, it becomes AttackOfThe50FootWhatever.

Often, the titles of such films will be quite [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin self explanatory]].

Compare EverythingTryingToKillYou. Depending on the object/animal, can overlap with NightmareFuel or ParanoiaFuel. Depending on the execution, can overlap with {{Narm}} instead. Also can overlap with OurMonstersAreWeird if the object is esoteric enough.

* Unlike the [[MonsterOfTheDay Monsters of the Day]] from previous seasons, the Daimons/Heart Snatchers from ''[[Anime/SailorMoon Sailor Moon S]]'' were normal objects infected with a Daimon egg/pod and transformed into monstrous beings [[MonogenderMonsters female in appearance]]. Said objects included a sport car, a vacuum cleaner, a violin, a train, a script for a TV show, a star projector (this episode was skipped during the show's first run on Creator/CartoonNetwork due to the resulting daimon resembling [[http://sailormoon.wikia.com/wiki/File:Uchoten.jpg a scantily clad carnival dancer]]) just to name a few.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books ]]
* ''ComicBook/HackSlash'': [[spoiler: parasitic twin foetuses]] and cartoon chipmunks bring in some variety from the normal slashers and serial killers--who are all pretty weird in of themselves.
** There was also the story about the high-tech snowblower that "ate" pets.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' features several electronic appliances (along with [=TVs=] and telephone poles) all trying to kill the titular protagonists courtesy of [[{{Technopath}} Electro.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* To get it out of the way, a lot of these movies are either produced by or eventually air on the SciFiChannel.
* ''Film/{{Alien}}'' (the first movie) is about a mindless killer extraterrestrial lurking in the shadows of a spaceship, picking people off one by one, and going "boo" every once in a while.
* ''{{Franchise/Terminator}}'': the first three movies are about a mother and/or son being hunted by a killing machine (literally) sent back in time to eliminate the protagonists and change the future.
* As mentioned in Literature below, ''Film/MaximumOverdrive''! Practically every mechanical object known to man turns on their creators after earth passes through the tail of a mysterious comet...or was it the flying saucer that the military shot down in the epilogue? Apparently the test screen of a scene of a boy getting ran over by a steamroller actually made Creator/GeorgeRomero throw up.
* ''Film/MansBestFriend'' is a film about a killer mutant puppy. A ridiculously cute one, at that.
* The ''Film/{{Leprechaun}}'' horror movie franchise, Lucky Charms commercials GoneHorriblyWrong.
* The infamous ''Film/JackFrost1997'' movies (not the one with Michael Keaton), about a snowman whose snow is infused with the DNA of a murderer. Includes a scene where the titular snowman [[spoiler:rapes and kills a woman in the shower with his carrot]].
** That woman? [[OldShame Shannon Elizabeth]]. And now you know... the rest of the back-story. Good day!
* ''Film/StayAlive'' is just one of many movies about killer videogames. One wonders how such a game gets out of beta testing...
** Strictly speaking, that one didn't [[spoiler: until the very stupid ending anyway.]]
* ''Film/KillerKlownsFromOuterSpace'' -- try saying the title with a straight face. This one was deliberately stupid, however.
* In the Japanese MindScrew horror movie ''Film/{{Hausu}}'' '''everything''' from ''a piano'' to ''pillows'' to '''a lampshade''', to [[GeniusLoci the titular ''House'',]] all because [[spoiler: the ''Auntie'' eats young female virgins to keep herself young while she waits for her boyfriend to come home from WWII.]] The little problem? [[spoiler: He ''died'' in the war. She received the news but didn't believe it.]] Oh, and she's also [[spoiler: dead]].
* Probably the quintessential "killer toy" movie is ''Film/ChildsPlay'', which earned four sequels.
* ''Film/TheGingerdeadMan'' involves a serial killer coming back as a homicidal animated cookie.
** However, the killer in question is Gary Busey, so the monster is less terrifying than the person.
* Somewhere in the region of 50% of Full Moon productions; they're most famous for milking the ''Film/PuppetMaster'' series (killer puppets) for all it's worth.
* [[SoBadItsGood Classically bad]] horror movie ''Film/TheCar'' is almost impossible to be horrified by, simply because the writing constantly reminds you how stupid the premise is. It reaches its logical extreme when the protagonist tells his wife, "Lock the kids in their rooms... the car is in the garage."
** Which is a shame, because the actual car was a custom-designed genuinely evil-looking thing that deserved a better movie to appear in.
** A better example would be ''Film/{{Christine}}'', wherein it's actually scary.
* The Burgess Meredith film ''Torture Garden'' featured a sequence about a killer ''piano''.
* The 1977 film ''Film/DeathBedTheBedThatEats'' was about... guess what? A killer bed.
** Patton Oswalt has a very profane, very funny routine about this movie in which he threatens to write and produce a movie called ''Rape Stove: The Stove That Rapes People''.
* ''Film/TheKillerShrews''--Which looks even sillier than it sounds, since it's so obvious that the 'shrews' are actually Collie dogs in bad makeup.
* 1977 saw ''Film/KingdomOfTheSpiders'', with William Shatner fighting billions of homicidal poisonous but normal-sized tarantulas. Normally, they are [[GiantSpider giant]] when they do such things.
** A problem with filming was trying to hide the fact that the scary-looking but harmless tarantulas were [[HumansAreCthulhu fleeing from the human actors]]; from their point-of-view an AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever.
* Given some of the other examples on this page, the 1978 horror movie spoof ''AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes'' seems almost sensible in comparison.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebfLWAB8bY4 ATTAAAACK OF THE KILLER TO-MAY-TOES!]]
** Dumber (and far more awesome) than advertised. But George Clooney was in the sequel.
* ''[[Film/BlackSheepTheMovie Black Sheep]]'', a horror movie about killer ... wait for it ... sheep. Though this one is a Horror/Comedy.
* Creator/AlfredHitchcock's ''Film/TheBirds'' is an early example.
** ''Film/ResidentEvilExtinction'' has flocks of killer zombie crows! We'd call it a "TakeThat" but its more akin to the film ''Film/{{Laserblast}}'' taking it's potshot at ''Franchise/StarWars'': picking on someone WAY out of their weight class.
* ''Literature/LeiningenVersusTheAnts'' is arguably a part of this genre.
* ''Film/KillerCondom'' - And the condoms were designed by Creator/HRGiger, creator of the ''Franchise/{{Alien}}''. Confused yet?
* Japanese film ''Battle Heater'' is about the rampage of a small electric space heater.
* ''Film/SnakesOnAPlane'' could arguably follow this trope.
* ''[[http://horror-movie-a-day.blogspot.com/2009/03/frogs.html Frogs]]'' (kinda stupid since most of the victims meet their demise from animals other than frogs - turtles, lizards, snakes, spiders, alligators, birds, crabs and butterflies!)
* ''Film/{{Slugs}}'', has maneating slugs mutated by toxic waste.
* ''Film/{{Squirm}}'', with its masses of biting worms.
* ''The Brain'' -- about a giant killer brain. Really.
** That's not the only killer brain film. We also have ''The Brain From Planet Aros'' and ''Fiend Without a Face''.
* ''TheRing''. Killer videotapes! (Okay, it's a ghost USING a videotape, but...)
** ''Film/{{Videodrome}}'' did it first. [[SnuffFilm Snuff television]] gives you tumours!
* The killer roach flick from the '80s called ''TheNest''.
* ''Film/DamnationAlley'' features killer cockroaches in one scene.
* As does ''Film/{{Creepshow}}'', which did it really well.
* A killer electromagnetic pulse causes appliances in a suburban neighborhood house to go all homicidal in the film called ''Pulse'' (a film from the 80's)
** The creep factor on ''Pulse'' was way up, especially due to the shower scene, because none of the appliances seemed to really be doing anything unexpected. It's actually quite plausible that your sink wouldn't stop running, or your water heater would get broken and the temperature would rise to scalding, or the washing machine/TV could give you a fatal shock.
* ''Attack of the Killer Refrigerator'' and, in a similar vein, a film titled simply ''The Refrigerator''. Its so corny, its SoBadItsGood, its the fridge from hell's logic!
* ''Film/TheMangler'' (based on a short stroy published in the collection ''Literature/NightShift''), a killer laundry machine.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jon8a3j2elU Monsturd]]'', followed by its sequel ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpzDxhNCwQY RetarDEAD]]''.
* There is apparently a movie about a book that when anybody read it they vanished into the book and it added a new story or chapter. A title would be nice.
* ''MonsterHouse''. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin It's right there in the title]].
* The film ''The Lift'' is centered around a killer elevator ("For God's sake, take the stairs").
* ''The Rats'' (2002). A clan of evil rats overtakes a Manhattan department store and threatens to overrun the city. Proof that B-movies are not restricted to the 1950s.
** There was a similar film called ''Deadly Eyes'' back in the '80s.
** There's ''[[Literature/RatmansNotebooks Willard]]'' and its sequel ''Ben'', both about killer rats.
* ''Film/{{Ticks}}'', horror movie where cat-sized ticks in a forest jump on people and cause BodyHorror.
* A short parody of ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead'' called... ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktD27xVIncg Night of the Living Bread]]''.
* Fishes. Sharks, yes, it goes without saying. For attacks of man-eating piranhas see the movie ''Film/{{Piranha}}''. Even ''flying fish'' can be turned into killers, eagerly propelling themselves out of the water and flying toward party-goers at a beach party to... bite their necks?
** But for normal sea-life transformed into vicious carnivorous killers, look no further than the Italian C-movie ''Plankton'' (1994) (a.k.a. ''Creatures from the Abyss'', a.k.a. ''Sea Devils''), where feeding on plankton poisoned by toxic waste has mutated fishes so that they can jump out of the water and eat sailors and a bunch of dumb tweens on a yacht. Nom, nom, nom.
* ''Film/{{Razorback}}'' is a 1984 film about a large man-eating feral pig rampaging through the Australian Outback.
* The natural insanity of humankind is perhaps exemplified by the fact that there is actually more than one movie about ''psychotic ice cream men''. SomethingAwful [[http://www.somethingawful.com/d/movie-reviews/mr-ice-cream.php reviews]] [[http://www.somethingawful.com/d/movie-reviews/ice-cream-man.php two]] of them. Both are somehow even ''more'' idiotic than they needed to be.
* ''One-Eyed Monster'' is a film about a killer penis. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=933FExsfU3c We wish we were was making this up]].
* ''Film/{{Killdozer}}''. Yes, an evil killer bulldozer. Sounds like the perfect date for ''Christine''. It gets its evil via [[AdvancedPhlebotinum alien-life from another galaxy]].
* ''The Shaft'': '''Another''' killer elevator.
** To anyone with a passing familiarity with statistics, it's odd that killer elevator movies are everywhere, with no movies about sentient, murderous stairs (which are actually far more likely to kill you from falling injuries)
* ''I Bought A Vampire Motorcycle''. A shape-shifting, murderous motorcycle terrorizes [[http://uk.imdb.com/name/nm0607403/ Bob the Builder]] in Birmingham in this 1990 [[SoBadItsGood B-movie]]. Not quite ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin in that the titular motorbike is actually a demon-possessed Norton Commando, but still awesome.
** Best line (as they stand round its dead remains) [[spoiler:What sort of bike was it? Norton Commando. Funny they're usually so reliable ]]
* ''Lightning Strikes'': The SciFiChannel presents killer lightning.
** ...as opposed to the regular, ''non-killing'' type of lightning?
*** Other lightning goes up to [[Film/BackToTheFuture 1.21 jiggerwatts]]. Ours goes up to 1.22. [[SpinalTap It's one more]].
* ''[[Film/OrcaTheKillerWhale Orca]]'' - [[FunnyAneurysmMoment Our adorable Shamu turned vengeful and bloodthirsty]].
* 1977's ''Film/DayOfTheAnimals'' - Probably the KING of this trope! There are wolves, dogs, rats, snakes, hawks, owls, mountain lions, and bears! Oh my!
* ''Attack of the Sabertooth'' Oh no! A crazy saber-toothed cat is running amok in the forest! Even more oh no! They somehow convinced John Rhys-Davies to do this movie!
* ''Frog-g-g!'' - also about frogs, but played humorously with a mutated frog having sex with female humans.
* ''Mae bia'' - Thai film about a family attacked by a deadly cobra.
* ''Mammoth'' - A meteor, bearing an alien, crash lands on a museum and resurrects the bones of a Mammoth. It rampages around and kills people by stepping on them. Beware his soul-sucking trunk of doom!
* Killer Kitties:
** ''Strays'' (1991)
** ''The Uncanny'' (1977)
** ''Black Cat'' (1981)
** ''Eye of the Cat'' (1969)
** ''Film/{{Uninvited|1988}}'' (1988). It's about a mutant cat that hides inside another cat and it is played by a handpuppet.
** ''The Night of a Thousand Cats'' (1972)
* ''Film/TheRedShoes2005'' - South Korean horror movie about evil, possessed high heel shoes. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5CWrXqVE8c&feature=related See here]]. Possibly related to the fairytale of the same name.
* ''The Wig''. When it comes to horror, there really is no limit on what the subject could be.
%%* ''Hair Extensions''
%%* ''Cello''
* ''Film/TheGiantClaw''. Earth is attacked by a '''Giant Antimatter Space Buzzard'''.
* ''TheMad'': Both Attack of the Killer Beef Patties and [[ZombieApocalypse zombies]] (the people who ate said patties when they were made into hamburgers)! It's a horror comedy.
* ''Film/{{Jumanji}}'' was a movie about both a killer boardgame and a killer jungle where everything's trying to kill you.
** ''Jumanji'' got a semi-sequel of its own, ''Film/{{Zathura}}'', which [[RecycledInSPACE recycled the killer boardgame theme]] [[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: [[Recycled In SPACE IN SPACE! ]]
]]
* ''Film/TheFoodOfTheGods'' and [[Film/FoodOfTheGods2 its sequel]]. The first included giant wasps and rats attacking people on an island. The second featured giant rodents as well only they ran wild in a city, attacking everything they could find.
* Quentin Dupieux's ''Film/{{Rubber}}'': A film about an angry car tire (no really) with deadly psychokinetic powers, rolling down the desert exploding the heads of anyone it doesn't like. ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext.
* ''Film/PoultrygeistNightOfTheChickenDead'': Played for all the squick, potty humor, gorn, and black comedy it's worth.
* ''Film/NightOfTheLepus''. It's a movie about GIANT KILLER RABBITS. And they're adorable real bunnies jumping around in little sets, and then closed-up for maximum dramatic effect. You've never witnessed terror until you see a furball gnawing ketchup.
* ''Film/RoadTrain'' (''Road Kill'' outside Australia) A movie about a spirit/demon possessed road train roaming the Australian Outback and demanding blood for fuel.
* The Japanese horror film ''Film/{{Premonition}}'' (unrelated to the Sandra Bullock-starring psychological drama of the same name) is about a killer ''newspaper''. The newspaper predicts peoples' deaths before they happen by way of the obituary section. The trailer alone was so disturbing that a mother wrote in to a local, uh, newspaper, complaining that the trailer should not have been screened on jumbotrons in the middle of crowded streets. She was probably very right.
* Blog/ToplessRobot had a list about ridiculous monsters called "Ten Creatures That Have No Business Starring in Horror Flicks", this included infected fetus cows from 2005's ''Isolation'', the bloodthirsty sheep from the horror comedy ''Black Sheep'', radiated deep sea worms from ''Film/DeepRising'', goblin sharks from ''Malibu Shark Attack'', giant shrews in 1959's ''The Killer Shrews'', badly CG animated beetles from ''Caved In: Prehistoric Terror'', a giant {{Slurpasaur}} style gila monster from ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ''The Giant Gila Monster'', and humongous grasshoppers from ''The Beginning of The End''.
* ''The Mailman'' ("Pray you're not on his route!")
* From Noboru Iguchi, ''Dead Sushi''. Bunch of killer sushi.
* The later ''[[TheAmityvilleHorror Amityville Horror]]'' sequels featured such things as evil lamps, mirrors, and dollhouses.
%%* ''Film/TheCarpenter''.
* The demonic turkey from ''Film/ThanksKilling''.
* The 1989 horror-comedy ''Blades'' involves killings at a country club that turn out to be caused by a killer lawnmower.
%%* ''Film/TheNun''
* ''The Paper Boy'' ("He's bad news!") Surprisingly unrelated to the aforementioned film ''The Mailman''.
** And now there's ''Rosewood Lane'', another evil paper boy flick.
* The giant snail creatures from ''Film/TheMonsterThatChallengedTheWorld''.
* ''Rectuma''. It's about a giant ass, and we don't mean a donkey (though that would also be strange).
%%* ''TheGarbageMan''.
* There's actually three slasher films about evil baseball players - ''The Catcher, Billy Club'' and ''Devon's Ghost: Legend of the Bloody Boy''.
* Taken to the next level with maneating hamburgers in this animated short, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARoLPibWAIk "Hambuster"]].
* ''Paper Jam'' is a short film about killer printers. You read that right.
* ''Film/{{Jaws}}'', and it's Sequels. A Giant [[ThreateningShark great white shark]] starts killing swimmers at the resort town of Amity. Eating people whole even. The Mayor tries to cover it up, but as the situation gets more and more dangerous a team looks into it and start hunting the shark. The sequels introduce new sharks, and the final film has a shark targeting the Ellen Brody character's family as "revenge".
* ''Film/{{Duel}}'' a 1971 made for TV movie directed by Creator/StevenSpielberg about a terrified motorist stalked on a lonely and remote road by a grimy and rusty 1955 Peterbilt 281 tanker truck. Spielberg intentionally made the truck driver a mostly unseen character so the audience would see the truck as the true antagonist.
* ''Film/{{Sharknado}}'' [[XMeetsY combines this with]] DisasterMovie in [[SoBadItsGood premise so preposterous]] that no one will be afraid of the dark, or water, or wind, as a result of it.
* Due to the PCP in the city's water supply all manner of animals have gone crazy in ''Film/WildBeasts'', mostly bic cats from the local zoo.
* ''Film/TheBrassTeapot'' is about an evil magical teapot. Itís implied to have brought down nations and empires.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Some of the grimoires turn people into other tomes (thus killing them) in Pratchett's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}''.
** There's a short story in one of the Alfred Hitchcock story collections that uses that plot.
* Terry Pratchett also used a swarm of "killer" rats, with the rat-king in ''Discworld/TheAmazingMauriceAndHisEducatedRodents''. The titular rodents themselves (as well as Maurice, a talking cat) are all good guys, though.
* ''Literature/TheDayOfTheTriffids''. In the film version, the only thing that gives the ''immobile killer plants'' a fighting chance is the fact that the meteor shower on which they arrive also blinds nearly everyone on Earth. In the original novel, it's a bit more sensical, as they were, when fully-grown, just barely mobile... and the focus wasn't on them, but on the [[CosyCatastrophe reaction of the survivors to the apocalypse]] to which the plants contributed, and the humans' attempts to cope. They didn't invade -- people were farming them for their commercially-useful oil, then the strange blindness-causing meteor shower eliminates the ability to keep them from being a danger, and they started rampaging. It's still a good movie, though.
** It isn't the only AttackOfTheKillerWhatever that Creator/JohnWyndham wrote, either: ''Web'', the inspiration for/prequel to the ''Arachnophobia'' movie(s) involves an island full of mutated spiders that are: a) more poisonous; b) have fangs/mandibles that are stronger and sharper than normal; c) more intelligent and d) have a rabidly cannibalistic, yet simultaneously highly co-operative society that apparently crosses species barriers. Oh, and some of them are as big as dogs. This troper wasn't particularly bothered by spiders before then, and it has taken many years to get even close to his pre-''Web'' state.
* Creator/HPLovecraft's ''The Cats of Ulthar'' had a similar premise. Although it was pretty cool.
** And it was part of a KarmicDeath, so it was all good.
* Creator/StephenKing seems to be the master of this:
** The short story "Trucks" in which evil trucks conquer the earth. Later turned into the film ''Maximum Overdrive''.
** ''Literature/{{Christine}}'', the infamous story of a homicidal (and rather possessive) car.
*** And ''Literature/FromABuick8'', which is about another evil car. Only this one isn't so much possessed as it is... [[EldritchAbomination wrong]].
** ''Literature/TheMangler'', which was spun off into a trilogy of movie adaptations - that's right, ''three'' movies about a killer laundry press. It's immobile, too, so it comes down to people being stupid enough not to learn to keep from walking up to the damn thing. Although the original short story implies [[spoiler:the thing does become mobile, in a TwistEnding]].
** In various Creator/StephenKing short stories, he has had people attacked by novelty chattering teeth, paintings, a toy monkey, evil toads... If it can be seen as even vaguely creepy by anybody in the Western world, chances are it's killed somebody in a Creator/StephenKing story.
* In John Byrne's ''Fearbook'', a catalogue that arrives in the mail convinces people to kill others or themselves.
* There is actually a book called ''Attack of the Killer Potatoes'', according to the OtherWiki. The tomatoes should sue.
* The political satire ''The Year of the Angry Rabbit'' by Russell Braddon. The rabbits are infected with a highly-toxic (to humans) strain of myxomatosis. Rather than trying to wipe them out however, the Australian government is more than happy to possess the most feared biological weapon in the world. Inspired the movie ''Film/NightOfTheLepus''.
* A mediocre local writer here in Singapore wrote a short story about ''killer hamburgers''. Pissed at the protagonist because ''[[FelonyMisdemeanor he switched his favorite food from burgers to fried chicken.]]'' At the end of the story, they MindControl him [[AssPull in an unspecified manner]] in a form of AndThenJohnWasAZombie.
** They're mad at him [[FridgeLogic for]] ''[[FridgeLogic not]]'' [[FridgeLogic eating them?]]
* ''{{Goosebumps}}'' books had dummies, lawn gnomes, egg monsters, and snowmen.
* OlderThanRadio: "The Malice of Inanimate Objects" by Creator/MRJames suggests that small accidents with everyday items (mentioning: the collar stud, the inkstand, the fire, the razor, the extra step on the staircase, the needle, the egg, the duck, the cat, the millstone...) are the result of the angry dead trying to exact revenge on the living. The particular example most of the story is dedicated to is a killer razor blade.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]
* Both ''AreYouAfraidOfTheDark?'' and ''{{Goosebumps}}'' had suspiciously similar stories about killer cameras, and got the same actor to play the same role in both adaptations.
** Both were more than likely inspired by an episode of ''Series/TheTwilightZone''.
*** Specifically, "[[http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=IAIQDSgeq-g A Most Unusual Camera]]".
**** There are a couple [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCPs]] of that type, including [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-978 SCP-978]].
** ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' had a guy killed by an evil slot machine.
* An animated sketch on ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' introduces the Killer Cars, which [[BehindAStick hide behind poles]] and ''jump'' on unsuspecting pedestrians. The cars are defeated "thanks to [[ILoveNuclearPower the miracle of atomic mutation]]" by an [[MegaNeko enormous bipedal cat]], which displaces them as the town's reigning terror. This monster is then defeated by a giant hand. Animator Terry Gilliam intended this sequence to be a [[SatireParodyPastiche parody]] of 1950s monster movies.
** Another of the show's animations has a house roaming about the countryside, gobbling people up through its doors, until it is found by "The House Hunters" ("These are house droppings... fresh ones, too!") who [[spoiler:slap a Condemned notice on it, causing it to collapse]].
** A sketch in another episode revolved around killer sheep.
** And the Science Fiction sketch has a killer ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blancmange blancmange]]'' from Outer Space, which [[FateWorseThanDeath turns people into Scotsmen]].
** The vicious gangs of "Keep Left" signs from the "Hell's Grannies" sketch.
** The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog from ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'' which rips peoples ''necks'' out, causing their heads to simply fall off.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** The episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E1Rose "Rose"]] has Mickey attacked by a man-eating wheelie bin.
** [[Recap/DoctorWho2005CSTheChristmasInvasion "The Christmas Invasion"]] has the protagonists come under threat from a Christmas tree.
** And then there are the attack of the killer [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E10Blink statues]] and attack of the killer ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E8SilenceInTheLibrary shadows]]''.
** Not to mention attack of the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS7E1SpearheadFromSpace killer]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS8E1TerrorOfTheAutons dress-shop]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E1Rose mannequins]].
** The Nestene Consciousness encourages this, due to being a horrible abomination with the ability to convert ''any items made out of plastic'' into murderous Autons. The 1971 episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS8E1TerrorOfTheAutons "Terror of the Autons"]] has killer inflatable chairs, killer plastic daffodils, killer BrandX [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Troll]]-dolls, killer advertising eyesores... Creator/RobertHolmes cited his inspirations for the story as the preponderance of cheap disposable plastic fad items that began to really take off in the '70s, and realising you would only need four inches square of plastic sheet to suffocate someone.
** Killer plants ("The Seeds of Doom"), seaweed ("Fury From the Deep"), ventriloquist's dummy ("The Talons of Weng-Chiang"), Egyptian mummies ("Pyramids of Mars"). Killer satnavs ("The Sontaran Stratagem"), killer Wi-fi ("The Bells of St. John"), killer diet pills ("Partners in Crime"), killer televisions ("The Idiot's Lantern"), killer drawings ("Fear Her"). ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' had killer energy drink.
* ''Monster Warriors'' had to deal - among other things - with a giant carnivorous butterfly that hypnotised people with its beauty, a living and very hungry blob, living radioactive junk ([[DoubleEntendre not that kind]]), giant (again) cockroaches, predatory vines, an army of giant frogs... Well, what do you expect from the show with a deranged and {{Brainwashed}} By Aliens ex-B-Movie director as a villain, anyway?
* The spoof horror show ''Series/GarthMarenghisDarkplace'' has a telekinetic attack by various implements, including an attack by a whisk. A later episode has an attack by a killer set of bagpipes.
* An episode of the early 90s American horror show called ''Monsters'' had an artist who owned a killer bed that ate his dates when he took them home, until he met a girl who had a killer fridge in her apartment, which then ate him. Played completely straight.
* There's a parody of ''Night of the Living Dead'' with the name "Night of the Living Bread"--it's an episode of a {{Claymation}} TV series called ''BumpInTheNight'' has the two main characters going up against a mutated, ambulatory, semi-carnivorous slice of bread, which they finally beat by flinging peanut butter at it while it's standing on the edge of a cupboard so it falls onto the floor and sticks.
* ''PowerRangers'' has some truly bizarre monsters at times - it comes with having to do a new one every episode over years and years and years. Killer [[RhinoRampage rhinos]] and [[HumongousMecha robots]]? Standard fare. But go long enough and you get killer spray bottles, killer buses ("Everyone who's ever stuck gum under one of my seats is going to PAY for it now!!") killer lawnmowers, killer radios (several!), killer chickens, killer lanterns, walls, roulette wheels, baseball players, bowlers, fleas, hats, fire trucks, pumpkins (''rapping'' pumpkins!)... there's nothing that ''hasn't'' battled a Megazord in the middle of town yet! With the possible exception of [[AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes tomatoes]].
* Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer had a killer puppet [[spoiler: except he was a good guy, a cursed demon hunter]] (''The Puppet Show'') and killer eggs (''Bad Eggs''). The spin-off show ''Series/{{Angel}}'' also had killer puppets (''Smile Time'')

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'':
** Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons! (see the page pic)
** Calvin's bike is also out to get him.
** And his baseball.
** His book once ate his homework and then attacked him, but he survived by breaking its spine.
** He's also had at least two run-ins with killer piles of autumn leaves.
** Once even his dinner came to life, grasped his fork, and tried to eat him.
* ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'' has touched on this trope in several strips, including "Scene from the film ''Giraffes IV'': This time, they're not just looking for acacia leaves."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Table Top Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' gets a lot of mileage from this:
** There is an adventure that has a "library that turns patrons into books" plot. This plot also shows up in ''{{JAGS Wonderland}}.''
** Cats crop up again in 3rd Edition housecats, which can, it has been famously pointed out, kill 1st level commoners.
** You have monsters that pretend to be the floor, monsters that pretend to be the ceiling, monsters that pretend to be walls, and mimics can pretend to be whatever the hell they feel like. It is entirely possible for an apparently unoccupied room to cause a TotalPartyKill even without traps or invisibility.
** Killer rats showed up as a sentient rat hive-mind called the Us.
** One module had you attacked by a Gazebo, obviously from someone fed up of people attacking one without realising what it is.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''AngryBirds'': Alfred Hitchcock's avian menace-''with a motive!''
* ''NanashiNoGame'' is about a killer 8-bit RPG.
* ''[[http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/a2600/image/585028.html?box=37970 Revenge of the Beefsteak Tomatoes]]''
* ''OverlordRaisingHell'' has Killer Pumpkins.
* The VGA remake of ''QuestForGloryII'' has the Pizza Elemental as a BonusBoss, a giant killer pizza.
* A number of enemies in ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' could qualify for this trope: Killer hippies, road signs, fire hydrants, paintings, cars, cups of coffee, goats, Salvador Dali clocks....
** It says something about the game that [[ChurchOfHappyology Insane Cultists]] are some of the more reasonable enemies therein.
* Additionally, in the game's prequel ''VideoGame/MOTHER1'', the first enemy you face is a possessed lamp.
** ''Mother 3'' as well, though it emphasizes chimera animals more, has a number of inanimate objects, like rocks and trees that can attack.
* The ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series tends towards this in most games, with monsters ranging from squirrels to bunnies to cacti to tablewares to children's toys to doors and walls. In [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyV one game]], the ''BigBad'' was a [[WhenTreesAttack tree]].
** One of the early encounters in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' was a killer playhouse that fired miniature nukes at your party.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' has ''killer savepoints''.
** ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=c6WW1dRWyyA#t=8s did it first.]]
* Invoked in ''VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'' with the horror novel-loving gravedigger Mort, who is apparently writing his own horror story...titled "The Grog that Drank People".
* In ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'', carp is the deadliest animal ever found in water. [[LegendaryCarp Yeah, carp]].
-->'''Tarn Adams:''' "[[ShrugOfGod I think I made the fish too hardcore]]".
** Carp have since passed the torch of "deadliest aquatic animal" on to the even more hardcore, even more ridiculous ''indestructible killer giant sea sponges''.
* The ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' series has this in spades, with everything from platypi to skewered bell peppers to pots and books.
* ''TonicTrouble'' has killer vegetables, who even have their own headquarters.
* An advertised but not released game for the ZX Spectrum was going to be called ''[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Attack of the Mutant Zombie Flesh-Eating Chickens from Mars]]''.
* ''KingdomOfLoathing'' is jam-packed with this; you can fight killer ''cans'' of tomatoes, blobs of burnt meat, and murderous macaroni, all in the same place. Elsewhere, not only are there homicidal desks, there are ''several different kinds'' of them. Deadly pinatas, calculators, wallpaper, constellations, hedges, snowmen...[[http://kol.coldfront.net/thekolwiki/index.php/Races_of_the_Kingdom the list]] goes on.
* ''Apple Panic'', a ''VideoGame/SpacePanic'' clone by BroderbundSoftware, had apples trying to kill you.
* The background of ''VideoGame/TokyoJungle'' has animals of all sorts, from housepets to farm animals to zoo animals, suddenly becoming more aggressive.
* ''AgentUSA'': Attack of the Killer Television.

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* The ''SluggyFreelance'' horror spoofs "[[http://pics.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=000626 KITTEN]]" and "[[http://pics.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=021021 KITTEN II]]" feature the main characters being attack by, you guessed it, kittens. [[KillerRabbit Tiny, cute, fuzzy, satanically-spawned kittens who eviscerate people if they don't get their milk]].
* Parodied by a ''FullFrontalNerdity'' [[http://nodwick.humor.gamespy.com/ffn/index.php?date=2007-01-10 storyline featuring a Stephen King RPG]]. The monster is ''[[OurVampiresAreDifferent an extradimensional radio that kills by drinking blood]]''. [[spoiler:It has to be killed through [[PayEvilUntoEvil the use of]] ''[[PayEvilUntoEvil Achy Breaky Heart]]'']].

[[folder:Web Original]]
* The Wiki/SCPFoundation has quite a lot of these, ranging from the [[PlayedForLaughs silly]] to the surprisingly horrifying.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-743 SCP-743]] is a chocolate fountain... that replenishes itself by releasing a swarm of ants that will cut up ''any'' organic material, alive or dead, and carry it back to the fountain. It has a tendency to favor [[HumanResources humans that have consumed the chocolate from the fountain...]]
** The original SCP is [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-173 173]], a bizarre-looking statue that can kill people if they aren't looking directly at it, not unlike the Weeping Angels from ''Series/DoctorWho''.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-426 I, SCP-426,]] am a killer toaster and also one of the most popular pages on the site. I kill people by making them think that they are toasters so that they kill themselves trying to do things that toasters do, like I, SCP-426, am doing right now to me, the troper that wrote this and to you too as you read this.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1048 SCP-1048]] is a teddy bear that likes to make copies of itself... copies made out of ''human organs'' that inflict all kinds of BodyHorror on others.
** Played for laughs with [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-504 SCP-504]], a species of tomato plant that kilsl people for [[LamePunReaction making bad jokes]] by [[ProducePelting launching its fruit at them at high speed.]]
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-871 SCP-871]] is a bunch of cakes that replicate endlessly if they are not eaten.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-002 SCP-002]], the killer hotel room from outer space.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-835 SCP-835]] a colony of killer coral [[spoiler: made from human flesh]].
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/triumph This story]] is about a man gloating to an unspecified SCP about how in the Foundationverse Killer Whatevers don't win in the end the way they [[DownerEnding frequently seem to do in horror movies]]. The writer of this story was inspired to write this after watching a lot of AttackOfTheKillerWhatever films, including the movie ''Film/{{Oculus}}''.

[[folder: Western Animation ]]
* The ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' episode title, "Attack of the Killer Garage Sale". It's ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Technus uses machinery from Danny's garage sale to wreck havoc.
* In the ''AceVentura'' animated series, the folks of a small town in the forest are attacked by a were-moose.
* ''{{Jumanji}}'' has the title boardgame and a boardgame inside the boardgame called "Brantford: The Game" (which evokes another trope; Fill-in-the-blanks: The something), so you get a killer board game, a killer jungle, a killer city and a list of killer things in everything is trying to kill you.
* BillPlympton did a short called ''Shuteye Hotel'', which was about a [[spoiler:killer pillow that bites off the head of anyone who sleeps on it]].
* KimPossible had an episode with evil snowmen animated by water from a toxic lake.
** The monkey ninjas, spliced animals made after a popular brand of mixed animal Cuddle-buddies, and Draken's girlfriend robots.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' [[HalloweenEpisode Treehouse of Horror XI]] had killer dolphins. Lenny was certainly surprised.
-->'''Lenny''': [surrounded by fins] [[EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks Sharks! The assassins of the sea]]! [the dolphins stick their heads out of the water] Oooh. You're not sharks. You're dolphins. The ''clowns'' of the sea.
** In other Halloween Simpsons also had the family dealing with killer cartoon characters (Itchy and Scratchy), a killer Crusty clown doll, a killer "evil" twin, killer giant advertising statues (like Lard Lad), killer cannibalistic teachers, killer bus gremlins, two killer houses (a supernatural one from I, and a robot house in XII), killer Homer clones, three cases of zombies (killer corpses of long-dead outlaws, zombies summoned by magic, and living humans turning into zombies from tainted hamburgers), killer blob (who happens to be a mutated Homer), killer golem, killer Transformer parodies, killer Pumpkin monsters, killer ghost celebrities, killer Jumanji parody, and a few alien invasions.
* A killer house appears in the same vein as ''MonsterHouse'' in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters'' entitled "Home is Where the Horror Is". Before that ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' did it with "Mrs Faversham's Neighborhood".
* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' with a fake B-movie called "The Do" (about a killer hairdo).
* Played for laughs in the ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' episode "Ello Gov'nor", where Rigby and Mordecai watch an old movie entitled [[TitleDrop Ello Gov'nor]], about a killer British taxi. No, really.
** It even gives Rigby nightmares, to boot!
* [[AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes ATTAAAAAAAAAACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES!!!]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36NgK-vJc1M No, really, they actually did make a cartoon series of it.]]
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad!'' had a homicidial hot tub voiced by Cee Lo Green, in a parody of ''Little Shop Of Horrors''.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' has "Day of the Living Gelatin", where a swimming pool full of grape gelatin is turned evil by one of Doofenshmirtz's inventions. The boys also get attacked by sentient potato-human hybrids in "Lotsa Latkes".
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'': since [[BigBad XANA's]] main abilitie rely on taking control of various things on Earth in order to attack the Lyoko-Warriors, it frequently made use of this trope: [[WhenTreesAttack killer trees,]] a giant food monster, a giant teddy bear, [[DieLaughing laughing gas,]] an Franchise/{{Alien}}-like prop, killer music, gas that [[HandWave petrifies people for some reason,]] a wild boar, electrified black sludge, an airplane (to be fair, the airplane was going to be used as a guided missle), small robot dogs, spheres that look like they came from [[ShoutOut Phantasm]], a virus that spreads via cellphones...[[/folder]]
