** In the Nuka-World DLC the [[PlayerCharacter Sole Survivor]] and Sierra Petrovita (from Fallout 3) can meet John-Caleb Bradberton, the inventor of Nuka-Cola. Before the bombs fell he cheated death by making an agreement with the U.S. government to become a test subject for their immortality research. Unfortunately they were [[BrainInaJar only able to preserve his head]] and he was conscious the entire time, leaving him staring at the walls of a hidden Vault for more than two centuries, unable to die. When the player encounters him, he begs them to shut off the power into order to turn off his life support system. Sierra then begs the player to keep him alive, [[WhatanIdiot offering to keep him company in the hopes of making him less suicidal]] (which he refuses, knowing full well that he'd be alone forever once she's dead). Whether to end or prolong his suffering is left up to the player.

** Despite the implication that she was going to be saved, Aqua [[spoiler: had to endure a horrible fate after sacrifice herself to save Terra and as a result, being trapped in the Realm of Darkness for at least ''ten years''. More so, she had to endure fighting heartless for those many years and is plagued by the thought that one of her friends had fallen to darkness and the other was in a coma.]] Let's hope she makes it out okay.

** ''Literature/TheForerunnerSaga'' shows that even physical death won't necessarily stop your torment, as every individual consciousness ever absorbed into the Flood remains intact enough to be manifested by the [[Hivemind Gravemind]] whenever it wishes to, mostly to troll its enemies.

* ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}} Terror From The Deep'' gives us the Bio-Drones, brains that have been attached to antigravity life-support units and then butchered into submission to the aliens. They ''can'' scream... but only to power their sonic weapon and kill others.

* [[TheVirus The Flood]] in the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' does this to any sentient it infects. It causes a host to mutate, replacing any "useless" components with Flood organs, while retaining "useful" aspects of its host. Unfortunately for the host, the higher cognitive systems are considered to be a "useful" function, and will preserve its hosts awareness so it can [[MindRape tap into their knowledge]]. Since the Flood also has no regard for the comfort of the host and otherwise takes over all motor nerves, the host must continue to exist in pain while being forced to experience themselves doing horrible things to spread the Flood to others. The only "natural" escape from this is when the host body gets so worn down and damage that it becomes otherwise [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness no longer useful to the Flood]] and bloats into a [[ActionBomb carrier form]] which will burst apart into several infection forms, continuing the cycle.

* Centeol in ''BaldursGate'', a minor NPC found in Cloakwood, was once a beautiful sorceress, but has been transformed into a grotesque blobby thing that is unable to move from the centre of its nest, where it is fed and protected by giant spiders.
* In ''BatenKaitos'', the five islands are kept aloft by pieces of the dead god of evil, Malpercio. [[spoiler:In the prequel, you learn Malpercio was actually five people (Seph, Thoran, Ven, Marno, and Pieda) who sold their soul to the Dark Brethren for power, and it was their bodies that were sealed into the End Magnus. Moreover, a chunk of Marno is inside Sagi, and Marno serves as Sagi's guardian spirit. Have the five of them been conscious ''while they're entombed in the islands''?! Moreover, in ''Eternal Wings'', the five End Magnus get ''fused together''. Are they still conscious after ''that''?]]

* Late in SurvivalHorror[=/=][[{{Gorn}} Guro]] game ''Demonophobia'', it's revealed by Ritz that the game's respawn system is not simply a gameplay mechanic it actually happens. Worse, every time main character Sakuri dies she remains conscious, aware, and feeling the pain of the fatal injury for three days before she's resurrected and her memory of the event is erased. FridgeHorror kicks in soon after when they player realizes that all of those corpses you've passed along your way are going through the exact same torture, but unlike Sakuri they don't have a guardian spirit to resurrect them and end their pain; they're going to be in that state for eternity.
