I have a harvesting tool,
But I'm not collecting food,
I come in uninvited,
But no one calls me rude.

My dress code is dark,
Body is stark,
Clothed in a cloak,
Terrorising innocent folk.

This must be:

The Death

I have a harvesting tool,

The Death is represented with a scythe

But I'm not collecting food,

He's not collecting food

I come in uninvited,

It's never expected or wanted

But no one calls me rude.

Not sure on this.

My dress code is dark,

Represented usually in black

Body is stark,

Often represented as a skeleton

Clothed in a cloak,

And wearing a cloak

Terrorising innocent folk.

Nobody likes him

This riddle is about

The Grim Reaper, AKA Death

I have a harvesting tool

A sickle

But I'm not collecting food,

He's collecting souls,

I come in uninvited

No one wants to die

But no one calls me rude.

Yet everybody accepts that everyone will die one day.

My dress code is dark

The Grim Reaper always wears black and/or dark grey colours exclusively

Body is stark,

His body is a skeleton,

Clothed in a cloak,

The Grim Reaper is always clothed as a hooded figure wearing a cloak,

Terrorising innocent folk.

Even the innocent must die too eventually.
