Excerpt: Elements of Irish mythology have appeared many times in popular culture. Note: "Banshee" (in Gaelic bean sidhe) originally meant "woman of the fairies". The banshees in old Irish folklore were often presented as grieving women who were keening (weeping/mourning) for the dead. This appears in the Darby O'Gill and the Little People DVD extra I Captured the King of the Leprechauns (originally a Walt Disney Presents or Wonderful World of Disney episode, telling viewers about the making of, and some of the folklore which inspired parts of, the movie Darby O'Gill and the Little People), in which the banshee is "keening for the young O'Brien" and is in no way a pernicious or threatening character, but merely seen as a dark or sad omen because she appears before people die. She does not cause deaths, she mourns for the dead (or, eerily, the soon-to-be-dead). The banshee in American popular culture (possibly starting with Darby O'Gill and the Little People, in which some characteristics of later American pop culture banshee behavior can be seen) is typically a threatening and/or menacing figure who causes death and/or destruction (thereby taking on characteristics belonging traditionally more to the Morrigan than to the banshees).

(Named after the Irish deity Cromm Cruac and seen only in the episode of the same name). The village appears periodically and is populated by evil spirits due to its residents having practiced human sacrifice (of their children) in the past. The Gargoyles TV series episode "The Hound of Ulster" has the Banshee taking the form of a gigantic centipede-like "death-worm" by the name of Cromm-Cruach to do battle with Goliath, Elisa Maza and Goliath's daughter Angela.
