** PlayedForLaughs with [[http://sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/20090216 Zombie-Head-On-A-Stick]], who's ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Originally, she was called Jane and was granted the [[WhoWantsToLiveForever "you can live forever, but your body can still decay"]] kind of immortality; she could keep from decaying away by consuming the parts of other people that she wanted to retain -- she made a point to eat brains to keep smart but could not help decaying outwardly to the point of looking like a zombie. Then someone she made very angry left her to decay away slowly, trapped under a pile of debris with only her head showing. This was played seriously, but after [[TheDitz Torg]] found her, she became the ZHOAS, a barely articulate head-without-a-body, filled with an all-consuming hunger she can never satisfy, and doomed to be [[http://sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/20090224 the plaything of bored idiots]].

Sometimes, she even seems to enjoy being part of the crazy team, but other time's, she's attempted suicide with her very limited means.

* In ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' Jane, who's got the [[WhoWantsToLiveForever "you can live forever, but your body can still decay"]] kind of immortality. She eventually becomes simply [[http://sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/20090216 Zombie-Head-On-A-Stick]], a barely articulate head-without-a-body, filled with an all-consuming hunger she can never satisfy, and doomed to be [[http://sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/20090224 the plaything of bored idiots]]. However, at least she's eventually decay away completely if she doesn't satisfy her hunger for brains... it'll just take a ''very'' long time.
** While Jane's fate is played for laughs and she might not even mind her new existence so much in the end (it's not really evident), a version happens to another much more sympathetic character without any especially magical or scifistic means: [[spoiler: Kept alive indefinitely by advanced medical technology but too hurt to be healed or for the pain to even stop, suffering from the same extreme agony permanently whenever conscious.]] It makes the "must scream" part literal.

[[spoiler: In the end of the chapter "bROKEN", Riff and Zoë are caught inside Riff's pilotable mecha when it's engulfed in flames from the inside. Zoë gets the full effect of the flames while Riff uses the emergency button that sends them away into a random alternative dimension. Next, he's seen cradling her horribly burnt form, after which he's captured and finds himself a citizen in a dystopian high-tech city. He starts looking for her, and eventually Brian Rammer, a rebel against the dystopian government, reveals to him that she has been kept alive by the medical nanotechnology in the city, and someone is keeping her alive still, but she's too hurt to be healed and spends her few conscious moments in agony. Riff becomes even more determined to find her, but this time in order to kill her.]] Then [[spoiler: it's revealed to be a SubvertedTrope, as Rammer lied. He has his own agenda and does not know Zoë's current state, but he knows the medical nanites can heal almost anything. Rammer showed Riff a video from the time Zoë was still in pain while she was being healed right after she arrived, wanting to motivate him to look for the leader of the city and overthrow them.]]

** Later, in the main comic, [[spoiler: Crystal. After Haley kills her, Bozzok turns her into a flesh golem, spending extra money to make her self-aware and retain her memories and skills, but not her [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny lack of focus]]. The new Crystal exists in constant pain, and is entirely focused on killing Haley, whose fault she thinks her state was. When Haley points out that it was really Bozzok's fault, Crystal [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters turns against him]] [[HoistByHisOwnPetard and kills him]].]]

* In the [[Webcomics/NuzlockeComics Nuzlocke comic]] ''Goddamn Critical Hits,'' this is what being a [[{{Franchise/Pokemon}} Cascoon]] is like. You can't move, speak, eat, or do ''anything'' until you evolve. Dusty the Dustox was one, and it's the primary reason for his loathing of Poké Balls ("I have spent half of my life in a dark, cramped jail, and I do not intend to inflict that on myself ever again!").

* In ''VerloreGeleentheid'', Jane Onoda was in [[HumanPopsicle cryogenic stasis]] for 10,000 years but, due to a computer glitch, she and the others on her ship were conscious the whole time. The only reason she stayed (somewhat) sane is that the ship's computer kept her occupied with battle scenarios against the species that nuked her homeworld.

** It's later revealed that a government did this to [[spoiler: people who broke their no bodily alterations rule]], just in case those people were ever needed. How useful those people would be after [[spoiler: years, decades, even centuries as statues]] is questionable at best.
