* The ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' troll loa Bwonsamdi hits many of the right notes. He is the god of death for a race heavily associated with voodoo, wears a skull mask, is frequently sinister even when he's ostensibly on your side, and always trying to make deals which he'll usually adhere to the letter of, if not the spirit. Throughout the Horde storyline of ''Battle for Azeroth'', Bwonsamdi is making deals and trying to find ways to exploit the situation to his advantage, culminating in [[spoiler: becoming the loa to which the Zandalari king Rastakhan swears fealty.]] He's surprisingly chill - often [[TakeThat mocking the players when they die]] and even mentions [[DarkIsNotEvil that despite being the loa of death, he is all for balance]] and [[EvenEvilHasStandards is generally against undead]].

Added DiffLines:

* Sam B from ''VideoGame/DeadIsland'' is this InUniverse. He's a rapper whose scene persona wears a black longcoat and a black top hat, and his two songs ("Who Do You Voodoo, Bitch?" in the opening cutscene of the first game, and "No Room in Hell", a live-action music video serving as promotional material for the ''VideoGame/DeadIslandRiptide'' sequel) are voodoo-themed; there's also the "Sam B"[=/=]"Samedi" pun. In proper game, he's merely a CelebritySurvivor with purely mundane ability. He's also a player character and a good guy (though not a nice person).
