==Literature and arts==
Fear of ghosts, their vengeance and mischief is a common base for a plot in the [[ghost story]] literary genre and in [[ghost movies]].
In cartoons and comics, [[Casper]] the Friendly Ghost|Casper's]] efforts to make friends, is hampered by humans, animals and even inanimate objects irrationally panicking, screaming and running away at the sight of him. It may be said that the characters Shaggy and Scooby from the TV and movie franchise ''Scooby-Doo'' suffer from phasmophobia, with the added joke that the ghosts they encountered were usually [[criminal]]s masquerading as ghosts, specifically preying on people's phasmophobia as a cover for their criminal activities.
