21Like a deadly game of hide-and-seek, sometimes a villain will search for a hidden character. The villain will often be walking slowly, to increase dramatic tension. We may flash to their quarry, hidden inside an {{air vent|Passageway}}, behind crates, under a table or inside a [[SearchingTheStalls bathroom stall]].
23Named for the line often spoken in a mocking singsong tone by the chaser, either to taunt the chased out of hiding or just to scare them. The line itself originates from the more innocuous context of the children's game Hide-and-Seek.

69* Another non-villainous example takes place in ''Film/TheThirdMan'', when Holly Martins tries coaxing some mysterious onlooker who's been tailing him out of the shadows, with the words, "Come out, come out ''who''ever you are"; He can see where the person is standing, but not ''who'' it is.
70* Appropriately enough, in the horror movie ''Film/HideAndSeek''. Emily is hiding in her room [[spoiler:from her father, who's been possessed by his SplitPersonality]] and Charlie comes in, doing an IronicEcho of the game Emily used to play with her mother.

76* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl''. "We know you're 'ere, poppet..."

81* Stated word for word in ''Film/TheTrumanShow'' by Truman's best friend looking for him in his basement.
82* ''Film/TheWarriors'': [[MemeticMutation "Warriors.... Come out to playyyyay..."]]. That line and the clanking of the empty bottles on each of his fingers were ad-libbed.
83* In ''Film/StarTrekInsurrection'', Picard actually sings this while searching for Data (who has been damaged and rendered temporarily 'insane'), drawing an odd look from Worf.
84* Something like this occurs in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''. Roger is hiding in a concealed room in a bar. BigBad Judge Doom enters and toys with the customers for a while, then starts tapping out "ShaveAndAHaircut" on the walls, knowing full well that it drives Toons ''batshit crazy'' when somebody leaves the "two bits" part off the end. Eventually Roger can't stand it anymore and bursts through the wall singing "''Twoooooo biiiiiits!''", allowing Doom to grab him.
85** Referenced in an issue of the comic, where Roger is hiding in a hollow tree stump until the villain knocks it twice, which makes Roger jump out and shout "[[KnockKnockJoke Who's there?]]"
89* In ''Franchise/HarryPotter'':
90** In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'', Harry ducks behind a tombstone in the Graveyard, avoiding Voldemort's curse. Softly, Voldemort tells him:
91--->"We are not playing hide and seek, Harry. You cannot hide from me. Does this mean you are tired of our duel? Does this mean that you would prefer me to finish it now, Harry? Come out, Harry... Come out and play, then... it will be quick... it might even be painless... I would not know... I have never died..."
92** Bellatrix also does this in the Department of Mysteries: "''Come out, come out, little Harry...''"
93* Magrat in ''Literature/LordsAndLadies'' when the elves hunt her down in her own castle. At least, until she finds [[MagicFeather Queen Ynci's armor]] and proceeds to kick elf ass.
94* ''Literature/MayaTheBee'':
95** Maya and Willy would mostly play hide and seek throughout the show.
96** The Studio 100 CGI series has a song called [[ "Verstoppertje"]] which is sung by Maya about her playing hide and seek with Flip and Willy. This song can be heard in the Maya show at ''Plopsaland'', where Maya is searching for Willy and Flip when she learns that they are planning a surprise for her birthday. But Flip and Willy have to keep it a secret between the female host.
97* Ammet the marid does this with Bartimaeus in ''[[Literature/TheBartimaeusTrilogy The Ring of Solomon]]''. It also happens when Honorious the afrit is trying to catch Kitty in Gladstones tomb in The Golems Eye.

When Thormod gets aware of the pursuers, he capsizes his boat and swims to a low-lying islet nearby, digs himself a hole between two rocks and covers himself with sea-weed. Thordis guesses correctly what Thormod has done and orders her posse to search the island and make sure to stab around in the sea-weed with their spears. When they do not find him, Thordis shouts that if Thormod can hear her, he must come out to prove he is truly manly and not a coward ("if he has a man's heart and not a mare's"). Thormod keeps lying still, and the searchers leave without having found him.
99* Danny and the monster in the climax of ''Literature/TheShining''.
100* During a memorable scene in ''Literature/SomethingWickedThisWayComes'', [[CircusOfFear evil carnival]] owner Mr. Dark searches the town library for young protagonists Will and Jim, alternately guessing aloud where they might be hiding and trying to trick them into revealing themselves (and tempt Will's father into betraying them) by offering each of them their greatest secret desires.
103[[folder:Live Action TV]]
104* A non-villain example occurs in ''Series/Batman1966''. Batgirl says it word-for-word to Catwoman after chasing her into a changing room; this, of course, is Catwoman's cue to [[RightBehindMe appear behind her]] and capture her.
105* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. The line is delivered verbatim in "[[Recap/BlakesSevenS3E10Ultraworld Ultraworld]]" when Vila is alone on the ''Liberator'' and aliens start sending MindControl waves onto the ship. However the most chilling example is in "[[Recap/BlakesSevenS4E11Orbit Orbit]]". Avon and Vila are on a shuttle that can't reach escape velocity because it's too heavy. They strip the shuttle of everything they can throw out the airlock, but are short 70 kilos. [[ColdEquation Which happens to be just under Vila's weight.]] As Vila crouches terrified behind a hatch, Avon stalks through the shuttle with a handgun, calling softly, "Vila? Vila, I need your help..."
106* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
107** In "[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS2E3SchoolHard School Hard]]", Spike does this to Buffy, complete with singsong tone (though he doesn't actually say the line; instead it's "Someone's in the ceiling...") He does say "Here kitty-kitty" which may as well be an alternate title for this trope.
108** In "[[{{Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS2E11Ted}} Ted]]" we're treated to Buffy sitting on a playground swing in the middle of the night saying, "Vampires, heeerrre vampires..."
109** In "[[{{Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS3E12Helpless}} Helpless]]" the SerialKiller-turned vampire stalking Buffy through the house says, "Hide and seeek, hide and seeek..."
110** Buffy vs. Angel in his [[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS1E7Angel eponymous episode]].
111** Buffy and the Master in "[[{{Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS1E12ProphecyGirl}} Prophecy Girl]]".
112** Becomes a FailedAttemptAtDrama in "[[{{Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS4E2LivingConditions}} Living Conditions]]".
113--->'''Buffy:''' Alright. Why don't you quit hiding and come out and face me like a ... [[BuffySpeak thing]].
114* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
115** In an inversion of this trope, a little child in a gas mask is looking for his mother. Thing is, the kid infects people so that they grow a gas mask over their faces, so when he meets his sister Nancy on the streets, he begins doing this.
116--->"Mummy! Where are you?... Mummy! I'm coming to find you!"
117** Of course in reality [[spoiler:she is actually his mother, thus justifying his questioning of her (even if unintentionally.)]]
118** It also plays the trope straight in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E13LastOfTheTimeLords Last of the Time Lords]]":
119--->'''Master:''' Out you come, ''little girl''. Come and meet your ''Master''.
120* ''Series/FawltyTowers''- In the "[[Recap/FawltyTowersS2E2ThePsychiatrist The Psychiatrist]]" when Basil is convinced that a guest is hiding young woman in his room. He thinks he's finally cornered the offenders, triumphantly calls out this trope... and out comes the guest's wizened little mother. This, for once, is a non-creepy example.
121* Done ironically in ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "[[Recap/FireflyE14ObjectsInSpace Objects In Space]]". "Come on out, River. Nice man wants to kidnap you."
122* Used twice by Rufus Zeno in ''Series/{{House of Anubis}}''. Once was to Patricia in the Season One episode House of Hazards. The second time was to Jerome in Season Two.
123* ''Series/LukeCage2016'' has Diamondback name drop ''Film/TheWarriors'' before delivering the corresponding ShoutOut.
124-->'''Diamondback:''' Caaaaarl, come out and playyyyay...
125* Used by a minor villain in ''Series/{{Merlin|2008}}''. He uses it after coming upon a village he planned to raze and finding it seemingly deserted.
126* A rare example done by a protagonist occurs in ''Series/NewYorkUndercover'': going in to arrest an ex-con sex offender on suspicion of an attack. "Come out come out wherever you are! little pervert."
127* A comic and (sort of) heroic example: The Cat in ''Series/RedDwarf'', hunting for mice: "Here, mousey, mousey! I've got some cheese! I only wanna be your friend!" *Hits things with a baseball bat*
128* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'':
129** Realising he's being stalked by a not-so-friendly ghost, Dean says, "Come out come out whoever you are."
130** Soulless!Sam says this while stalking his other self in a BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind.
131* Done comically in ''[[Series/{{V 1983}} V: The Final Battle]]'' from 1984: a not-so-bright Visitor starts softly calling "Mousiiiieeeeee. Mousie. Here, mousie" to a dumpster as he scrounges for mice to eat.
135* "Ode to a Centipede" from the album ''Music/PacManFever'' has the singer doing this to the centipede, bordering on StalkerWithACrush levels.
136-->''You can't get away little centipede.\
137I'm right behind you.\
138Don't try hiding behind the mushrooms.\
139I see you!''
142[[folder:Music Videos]]
143* Music/{{Miserable}}. Jeremy Popoff tries to save himself from the GiantWoman by cowering behind a speaker. [[spoiler:[[EatenAlive It doesn't work.]] ]]
147* Becky, infected by the HatePlague, does this to Hannah in ''Theatre/BlackFriday'' with her song "Do You Want to Play With Me?", searching for Hannah while serenely singing to her and calling her "lovely girl" and offering to play games with her... while hiding a syringe full of knockout drugs behind her back. Brr...
148* Sweeney and Mrs. Lovett searching for Toby near the end of ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet''. Mrs. Lovett sings a DarkReprise of "Not While I'm Around" for maximum creepiness.
151[[folder:Video Games]]
152* In ''VideoGame/AlphaProtocol'', Brayko uses this line verbatim when you try hiding from him (in contrast to Omen Deng and Marburg, who can sniff you out wherever you are).
153-->'''Brayko:''' Come out, come out, wherever you are... Olly olly oxen free, whatever the fuck that means.
154* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'': Although this line is never said, its typical follow-up line is used by Scarecrow if Batman is seen by the good doctor's hypodermic-needle-gloved Freddy Krueger-esque monster self in his fear-gas-induced visions of DEATH. Batman must avoid him by hiding in the shadows, but if he's seen, the follow-up line is spoken:
155-->"Oh, '''there''' you are...(SLASH)"
156* ''VideoGame/{{Blood}}'' does this, but as a reference rather than a trope. Though, sure enough, when Caleb says it [[MonsterCloset some zombies oblige]].
157** ''Blood II'' reverses this, with Fanatics often stating "Come out, we won't hurt you!"
158* In ''VideoGame/Borderlands1'', the Mooks say exactly this (often followed by a "What are you, scared? Or '''something'''?).
159* During [[TheIngenue Merrill's]] second-act personal mission in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', you encounter an elf named Pol hiding in the Varterral caverns, prompting Hawke to use a similar line.
160-->'''[[DeadpanSnarker Silly!Hawke:]]''' Whoever's hiding around here had better come out. Unless you're a dragon. Then feel free to keep hiding.
161* I ''VideoGame/DukeNukemManhattanProject'', Duke has one before the fight with Morphix.
162--> '''Duke:''' Come on out, Morphix. There's just two ways this can end, and in both of them, you die!
163* The super mutants in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' sometimes say exactly this when you hide from them, complete with a short, almost sarcastic laugh.
164* Sky Captain, AI opponent of the old Creator/ElectronicArts game ''VideoGame/FutureCopLAPD'' says it when hunting for the player.
165* Coming from possessed Ray Stantz in ''VideoGame/GhostbustersTheVideoGame'', this has a definite potential for nightmare fuel.
166* Used by Filch in ''VideoGame/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'', when you're sneaking around the library.
167* In ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', one of Annie's lines playing randomly during a game.
168-->"Come out, come out, wherever you are..." with a long "a" and singed in her childish voice.
169* ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' sees [[BadassBiker Francis]], one of the survivors, deliver one of these in a rather blunt fashion when he hears a Hunter nearby: "I hear a Hunter! Come on out, wussy!"
170* In the last section of ''VideoGame/MadFather'', while Aya is being chased with a chainsaw by [[spoiler:her titular father]].

173* From ''VideoGame/MaxPayne,'' during the battle with [[spoiler:B.B.]]: "Maxey, Maxey, Maxey...Come out, come out wherever you are! You know, I really hate people who refuse to see the inevitable, refuse to do the smart thing..."
174* [[ManInTheMachine Khamsin]] of ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance]]'' will sometimes unleash an attack that kicks up big chunks of the ground around him. He is less than pleased when the player uses these as hiding spots, shouting the common example as well as a few other taunts.
175-->'''Khamsin:''' Hidden or in plain sight, '''you're dead just the same!'''
176* ''VideoGame/SpiderMan2000'':
177** Venom has a moment after a chase scene, though ironically, it was Spidey chasing him rather than the other way around.
178--->'''Venom:''' Where'd Spider-Wuss go? '''Spider-Wussss!''' Come out and plaaaaaayyy!\
179'''Spider-Man:''' [''[[DynamicEntry lands on Venom's head]]''] TAG!
180** During Scorpion's boss fight, he goes around looking for J. Jonah Jameson, calling out to him.
181* ''VideoGame/SplinterCell'': The mercenaries in the Kalinatek level say this line.
182* This describes the entire gameplay of ''VideoGame/{{Thief}}'', though some pursuers hew to it more closely than others.
183* Appears verbatim in ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChroniclesII'' in the EnemyChatter.
184* When Emilia is looking for the Pope in ''VideoGame/YggdraUnion'', she starts calling out the traditional Japanese hide-and-seek lines in frustration ("Olly olly oxenfree!" in the English version). It doesn't come off as particularly frightening because it takes her a ''very'' long time for her to find him, on top of which Emilia is fourteen.
187[[folder:Web Works]]
188* In ''Webcomic/{{Godslave}}'', Edith and Turner play this briefly when she tries to escape from him at the museum, although Turner choses this moment to play AffablyEvil card.
189* In the ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' episode "Black and White", [[CatGirl Blake Belladonna]] takes cover from Roman Torchwick's [[SwordCane Gun Cane]]. Roman wanders the area while saying, "Here, kitty-kitty."
190* In ''WebVideo/TribeTwelve'', Noah uses this to [[DoNotTauntCthulhu taunt]] [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos The Administrator]].
191-->'''Noah:''' Come out, come out, wherever you are!\
192'''The Administrator is seen on the top of the observation tower, [[CombatTentacles flailing his tentacles]].'''\
193'''Noah:''' Oh shit! You're up there, huh? I'm fucking coming!
196[[folder:Western Animation]]
197* Said by The Joker in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', "Be A Clown". Joker ends up chasing a child he inadvertently kidnapped (after an attempt to blow up everyone at said child’s birthday party, no less) in a dark, creepy amusement park which seems to have been abandoned. Yes, the scenario is just as scary as it sounds. Especially chilling when he takes a stick and drags it along the gating.
198* ''WesternAnimation/BeanyAndCecil'' had Dishonest John as Singood the Sailor summoning an inebriated genie from a bottle with "Come out, come out, ''whatever'' you are!"
199* The second ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' film did a variation of this: Vakama was hidden using his invisibility power, and at some point, Makuta tried to taunt him out of hiding using the tactics described in this trope.
200* On ''WesternAnimation/TheCatInTheHatKnowsALotAboutThat'', Barry the baracuda sings a rap song that includes this as part of its lyrics while he's hunting for his prey.
201* Used innocently in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DangerMouse'' by Penfold, as he searches for the titular hero.
202* The Lumberjack ghost says this word for word when hunting Dipper and Pacifica in the ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' episode "Northwest Mansion Mystery".
203* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop'' the museum's security guard chases after Zoe, saying "Here, doggie, doggie, doggie!"
204* ''WesternAnimation/MaxAndRuby'': Ruby does this to Max in the "Max, Where Are You?" song in Bunny Party. Her tone of voice indicates that it's serious - she's not in the mood for Max's games.
205* ''[[WesternAnimation/MenInBlack Men in Black: the Animated Series]]'' has Jay do this while searching a sewer for the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Alien of the Week]].
206* In ''WesternAnimation/MightyMouse Meets Deadeye Dick,'' our hero defeats and humiliates Deadeye. The outlaw returns with a gang of thugs as they call Mighty Mouse out from a saloon.
207-->"Whoever crosses me," said Dick, "is bound to face disaster.\
208Come on out, you yellow polecat. Come out and face your master!"
209* Mr. Tod says it in "The Tale of the Unguarded Garden" from ''WesternAnimation/PeterRabbit'' after Peter, his sister and friends elude his grasp and hide from him.
210* Used in a ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' episode in which Angelica has a nightmare that her new baby brother is evil and can talk to her.
211* In ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'''s "Jack and the Zombies", Aku got hold of Jack's sword and sought the terrified hero throughout a cemetery, while mockingly saying: "Oh Samurai! Where are you, Samurai? You can run but you cannot hide, `cause I can smell your blood!"
212* Said by Gargamel in ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' episode "Hogatha's Heart Throb" when he just got his hands on her magic whistle [[spoiler:actually, her bird call]].
213* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars,''[[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS1E7DuelOfTheDroids , "Duel of the Droids"]]: Grievous tries taunting Ahsoka into giving up her hiding place in the storeroom where he corners her.
214* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''
215** The episode "Final Exam". Jinx does this while chasing Beast Boy through the Titans Tower.
216--->"Here, kitty, kitty. What's the matter? Afraid of a little bad luck?"
217** Mother Mae-Eye says this when chasing the Titans.
218* Used by The Monarch on ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', {{lampshaded}} with his comment afterward of "Cliched I know. Trust me, it sounds extra creepy over the PA".
