A personified character of Death has recurred many times in popular fiction. The character can be found in early pieces, such as the fifteenth century morality play Everyman.
In the present day, death is portrayed in many mediums of popular fiction. One of the most iconic portrayals is that of the 1957 film The Seventh Seal, by Swedish director Ingmar Bergman. It is an influential (and heavily symbolic) movie depicting one of the most famous moments in the portrayal of Death. In the movie, a medieval knight returning from a crusade plays a game of chess with Death, with the knight's life depending upon the outcome of the game. American film critic Roger Ebert remarked that this image "[is] so perfect it has survived countless parodies."
Death is also personified in the 1934 film Death Takes a Holiday with Frederic March and the 1998 film Meet Joe Black with Anthony Hopkins and Brad Pitt.
Another appearance of Death in popular fiction, is in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series of novels. The character of Death has appeared in almost every one of the series' 36 books. Donal Clarke of the Irish Times called Death the most famous of Pratchett's characters and said that this version is "somewhat less fearsome than the version of the character in, say, Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal."
In the popular Final Destination franchise, Death is an unseen antagonist for disaster survivors' attempts to defeat, but with no success.
DC Comics have various fictional entities within its publications besides the Grim Reaper which are all personification of Death, such as the Spectre, Nekron, the Black Flash, Black Racer, H'ronmeer, Death, Azraeuz etc. Nekron, which is describes as a "black personification" of it, currently is a primary antagonist of the 2009-2010 crossover event Blackest Night.
In the N64 and Xbox game, Conker's Bad Fur Day and it's remake, Live & Reloaded, there's a Grim Reaper called Gregg, who is very short and speaks in a high-pitched voice.
