The Harvester of Souls is an animatronic sold by Spirit Halloween for the 2020 and 2021 Halloween seasons. It resembles a tall hooded vampire-like creature holding a young girl with black hair in a pink colored dress. Upon activation, the vampire-like creature lifts the girl upwards as the head of the girl rises, and the eyes of the creature and the girl illuminate while a phrase is spoken. Fog then spews forth from the mouth of the girl and is inhaled by the vampire-like creature, as green LED lights illuminate the fog, giving the effect of the girls soul being inhaled. When finished, the head of the girl descends as if she is now lifeless.
Spirit Halloween's Description
"He climbed from the depths of hell to collect souls for his evil horde. The Harvester of Souls will stop at nothing to fuel his army of undead children and wreak havoc on us mere mortals. He has lived for thousands of years in the shadowy gates of hell, feasting on the souls of lost children and building his army to seek his twisted revenge against the dark-hearted world and the orphanage that cast him aside on his eighteenth birthday."
"The Harvester of souls features LED lighting that makes his torment the center of attention. His arms also raise up to lift up his victim and "suck the soul" straight from their body."

- The Harvester of Souls, along with this article, was featured on the Judge John Hodgman Podcast, in the episodes "Grocery Store Quilts" and "Maine's Holiday Boy."
- The codename for this animatronic is "STRAWBERRY."
- The ANIM number for this animatronic is ANIM 50.
- This animatronic was confirmed to be made by Tekky Design due to its name being featured on the new adapter along with the Black and Red Jumping Spider and Ellie Hatchet. This however went unnoticed for a long time due to the name being similar to The Harvester.
- This animatronic is the most expensive Tekky Design item to be sold by Spirit Halloween, tied with Possessed Baby. Although, Possessed Baby was not intended to be setup in-stores, and was only sent out to select locations.
- In the ISE video for Reaper's Island Cave, additional crying audio for the girl was added. The sound was also used in the sneak peek for the Little Daisy and the Maestro.
- The arms holding the girl slip down after numerous activations. This is caused by the belt stretching out over time.
