Turning undead is a power available to members of the cleric class in Dungeons & Dragons. The cleric presents a holy symbol forcefully towards undead monsters (such as skeletons, zombies, ghouls, vampires, etc.) and, usually if a dice roll is made successfully, the undead will be forced to flee rather than attack.

Many media have copied the idea from D&D, which itself got the idea from cinematic vampire lore - the image of a person holding a vampire at bay by brandishing a Christian cross at it.
