* In "Literature/TheGypsiesInTheWood", construction of a faerie-themed amusement park (inspired by the artwork of an artist who was abducted by TheFairFolk as a child) is plagued by numerous problems, which rumour attributes to an infestation of goblins. The problems frequently involve malfunctions in the park's equipment or electrical systems.


* The ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' episode "Throwing in the Noctowl": Ash, Misty and Brock meet an old pilot named Wings Alexander, who agrees to give them a ride back to Olivine City. Unfortunately, the plane is as old as Alexander and his Noctowl and during the flight Ash and his friends (along with a stowaway Team Rocket) must work together to help Alexander navigate through a treacherous storm and keep the plane from falling apart. Meowth spots a familiar shape on the plane's wing and it turns out to be [[OhCrap Jigglypuff!]] She then starts to sing, not only making everyone fall asleep once again, but also causing the plane to take a violent dive. But just as she prepares to draw on everyone's faces, she is swept off the plane by a strong gust of wind. Everybody then immediately wakes up and the plane is set back in gear just in time.

Added DiffLines:

* Gremlins appear in one of the ''Griezelklas'' books by Creator/TaisTeng. They're small, cuddly mammals who turn into vicious reptiles if water is sprayed on them. Contrary to how they're portrayed in the ''Gremlins'' films, the transformation can be reversed by getting them dry again--Meral scares them away with a blowdryer. They're also much more intelligent, being capable of articulated speech.


* ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' gives us the TropeCodifier in "[[Recap/TheTwilightZoneS5E123NightmareAt20000Feet Nightmare at 20,000 Feet]]", where an airplane passenger played by Creator/WilliamShatner sees a gremlin tearing up the wing, but can't get anyone to see the gremlin or believe him.
