* ''SOMA'':
** The ultimate fate of [[spoiler: Simon Jarrett; while his copy got to experience paradise on the ARK, the one we play as is stranded alone on the bottom of the sea.]] It can also apply to [[spoiler: the Simon left at Omicron if you choose not to MercyKill him.]]
** Simon runs across several of the PATHOS-II staff throughout his journey across the facility, artificially kept alive by the WAU but generally immobilized and suffering great pain, due to the WAU's BlueAndOrangeMorality.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'', the Vileblood spirit killed by the Executioners lie inside the weapons of the Executioners and utilised as weapons, and the vengeful spirits grind by the wagon wheel and drenched into the gloves and are implied to be conscious. [[spoiler: If you give a letter to Alfred to spoil th location of Cainhurst, Alfred would head to the throne room to grind Annalise, the immortal queen of Vileblood into mincemeat with his wagon wheel. It is implied those blobs of flesh are ''still alive'' after being grind into pieces.]]

** The culmination of the Daud DLC also has this as a result of using the [[CruelMercy nonlethal takedown]] on the FInalBoss: [[spoiler:you can replace the portrait of Emily Delilah is using in [[BodySurf her ritual]] with a painting of a tree. Once in, Delilah will have no way to leave that form. And since the tree is implied to be in [[EldritchLocation the void]], she can't even rely on being chopped down to end her torment...]]

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Pokémon in general - what exactly happens to Pokémon in Poké Balls? Are they conscious? How about Pokémon that get sent to the PC? Do they live in a virtual world? The trophies in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games state that Poké Balls contain miniature worlds for them to live in. The [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} anime]] states that Pokémon rest there in a special habitat designed for them. In the ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'' manga (and a few others), they just become tiny and are kept inside the balls. They're fully conscious and can move, but don't seem to mind. Pikachu even walks inside the Poké Ball so that it rolls around like a hamster ball, which is just adorable.
** [[spoiler: The BigBad Lysandre's]] fate in ''PokemonXAndY''. The X version reveals he got stuck beneath the collapsed structure in Geosenge town. And he's '''immortal'''. Yikes.
** ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' barely averts this; In the Giant Chasm, Ghetsis tries to stop you by the following steps: Step 1: Freeze you with Glaciate, and keep you alive inside the ice. Step 2: Freeze the rest of the world, letting you literally WatchTheWorldDie, while you cannot cry, scream, resist, or do anything about it. Step 3: Have Kyurem finish the job.

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'': [[spoiler:Rika Furude]] has been stuck in a GroundhogDayLoop for somewhere between a century and a millennium. In most iterations, one of her friends will [[HatePlague go insane and kill a bunch of people]]. In every iteration, [[spoiler:Rika is murdered, usually [[CruelAndUnusualDeath disemboweled while she's still alive]], and most or all of her friends die within a few days. Then she's resurrected in the past, and goes through it all over again, and she's the only one who remembers what's happening, but enough important details keep changing that she can't manage to stop it.]]



* Jovani in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' sold his soul to the Poes and was turned into a living gold-and-jewel statue. He can still talk, but that's not much help since he's stuck in his house until you find a way in. After you find enough Poe Souls, he can move again, but he's still made of gold, so he can't leave the house out of fear of being seen in this state. [[AesopCollateralDamage His cat also suffers the same fate]].
** Also, in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast A Link to the Past]]'', the Flute Boy in the Haunted Grove turns into a living tree, and in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'', the Deku Butler's son was also turned into a tree.
*** It's implied that they're actually dead. In the case of the Deku Butler, he is seen at the end of the game, in front of the tree his son was transformed into, seemingly mourning.
** The Skultulla Cursed Family in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' could very well fit in this trope. They can't free themselves and being it a side-quest, you could skip it completely.
*** Actually, it gets kind of worse. You do, after all, free some of them. But chances are you didn't free them all. Which means that some of the relatives are still trapped in [[BodyHorror that shape]] after the end of the game. And that they will watch the saved ones grow old and die, leaving the still cursed one alone, [[FateWorseThanDeath forever]].

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', this is the consequence of a witch causing a Logic Error. The offending witch becomes trapped in the paradox until they can think of a way to resolve it -- or for all eternity, whichever comes first.

* In ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Trials And Tribulations'', the BigBad [[spoiler:Dahlia Hawthorne]] brags that she can't be punished for what she did because she's already dead, seeing as how she's been [[spoiler: executed for crimes she committed years before, having come back from the dead by way of spirit channelling to get revenge]]. Phoenix and Mia end up giving her the "ultimate punishment" by reminding her that spirits live on forever and that she's therefore got to live with the fact she's a failure for all of eternity. This does the job, and ended up causing the spirit to scream in agony, before fading back into the afterlife.

* In ''VideoGame/ShadowrunReturns'' DLC Dragonfall you can take a run on a corp to retrieve a special combat cyborg that is supposed to be the most effective ever created. The catch? [[The being is so cybered up that they have practically no essence less and are completely under the control of who has their remote system. The poor Troll that was subjected to this is still very much aware at the end if you chose to release them instead of turning them over. The Troll thanks you in a digitized voice, then proceeds to crush their own head with their hand.]] Your followers will lament on any decision you chose but are most negative with turning them over.
