Many have heard the beginning of its low, sustained shriek but few the end.
— Midnight Banshee, Magic: The Gathering
"The Wailing Woman. A banshee right before my eyes. Such a shame that I have to kill you."
— Jennifer Blake, Teen Wolf
Her fleeting shadow in female guise cloaked in darkness and mystery
With wind tossed hair and sparkling eyes, she cries out in misery
With eyes that are full of tears
And a cry that rips your soul apart and heralds death is near!
It's the cry of the Banshee!
— Pagan Altar, "Cry of the Banshee"
"Enough! My voice can seduce or mesmerize or bring pain beyond imagining. If you will not give me truth willingly, I will take it by force! Tell me now what Oberon plans for me! You will suffer for your slowness to obey! And the human might do more than suffer! For when The Banshee keens... MEN! DIE!"
— The Banshee, "The Hound Of Ulster", Gargoyles.
