** This would've also been the fate of Alexander G. Wolf himself, since he, too ends up being [[HoistByHisOwnPetard put through the machine]]. Like Raggedy Arthur, he winds up encased from the neck down and unlike Arthur this is a good thing since he is a living biological character who needs to breathe and eat. Since the machine had been on its Christmas tree setting, Alexander ends up in a chunk of gloopstik shaped like a Christmas tree, with lights and a star and everything, which allows the special to downplay the true horror his situation: rather than focusing on the fact he'd die a slow, agonizing death from being unable to excrete his own bodily waste, the defeated villain merely bemoans that now he'll have to live his life as a Christmas tree, wailing, "I don't know ''how'' to be a [[AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle Christ-mas]] tree!" Despite this, it's still rather disturbing seeing the special's bad guy sobbing his eyes out at his predicament, and fortunately for him, Raggedy Ann and Andy agree, as he, too, ends up being saved by ThePowerOfLove.

* In the episode "Close Rick-counters of the Rick Kind" of ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' a Rick from another dimension kills other Ricks and subjects their Mortys to what he called the "Morty-Dome": a large dome with hundreds of Mortys attached to it, having their sides repeatably stabbed to cause them pain. [[spoiler:Gets even worse that the end reveals that a ''Morty'' was behind it all, leading to some serious CloningBlues.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShowTheMovie'': Ross's time collar keeps bringing him back to life after his head is cut off, and the only thing he can repeat is [[BigNo "Noooo!"]]

* This would've been the fate of Raggedy Arthur in the ''Literature/RaggedyAnn'' ChristmasSpecial ''WesternAnimation/TheGreatSantaClausCaper''. The villain, Alexander Graham Wolf (kind af an {{Expy}} of [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner Wile E. Coyote]] is using a machine to encase Christmas toys in "gloopstik," and at one point, poor Arthur goes through the machine. The poor pooch is completely encased in a block of gloopstik from the neck down. Although he can breathe and bark (although why a rag doll dog would need to ''breathe'' goes unexplained), he is incapable of moving under his own power. Alexander claims gloopstik is incapable of being broken, meaning Arthur is effectively stuck this way for all eternity. Fortunately it makes no difference to Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy; after getting over their initial horror and anger and defeating the villain, they tell Arthur they'll always love him no matter what, whereupon the gloopstik shatters thanks to ThePowerOfLove.

* "Paralytic fluid" in the ''WesternAnimation/AeonFlux'' episode "Ether Drift Theory". The Habitat laboratory is submerged in a lake of said fluid, which [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin paralyzes those who fall in it]], with no hope of rescue. ''But they are still conscious.'' This happens to Aeon herself at the end of the episode. The last scene of the episode is of Aeon, paralyzed in the fluid, as the two halves of the item that would neutralize the solution slowly float in front of her eyes, collide, and go in different directions.

* The ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' episode "The Wanders" has Wander accidentally getting split into 420 aspects of his personality, leaving the real Wander to just stand there with BlankWhiteEyes. After Sylvia puts them all back together, Wander seals up the cave and remarks that he'd hate to see anyone else go through what he went through, implying that on some level he was aware that he'd been shattered into fragments of himself and was incomplete and in danger of fading from existence.

** And then, there's "Weirdmageddon 2", in which [[spoiler:Bill Cipher turns the inhabitants of Gravity Falls to stone and then assembles their contorted bodies into "massive throne of frozen human agony".]] "Don't worry! They're not conscious any more. Probably." [[spoiler:Yes they are.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' gives us Koh the FaceStealer, who does ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin : steals your face and leaves you as a [[TheBlank blank]]. Imagine being stuck, with ''no eyes,'' ''no nose,'' and ''no mouth'' for the rest of your life. Worse, it's possible that you're stuck like that for eternity in the Spirit World.

* The famous "Roswell That Ends Well" episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' had Bender fall off the back of the Planet Express ship as it was returning to the present, causing his head, which holds the AI, to be buried under the New Mexican ground for 1,000 years until the crew picked him up. To him, however, it was pretty good until the crew showed up.

** {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in the episode "Raging Bender" when George Foreman says, "As a head without a body, I envy the dead." (Oddly enough, most of the celebrities who have ended up like this have no problem with it.) Although he was smiling as he said it.
*** Richard Nixon's head once said something along the lines of this about being a head.

** Worst of all, we've seen clues that the Gem version of "death," having your gem shattered, may be this instead. Gem shards can't communicate or act logically, but have enough of a "partial consciousness" to be used as power sources, and even the heroes have no qualms about using them as such. In the episode "Frybo" a gem shard was used to bring life to a creepy french fry mascot costume, and had enough presence of mind to follow orders, albeit [[LiteralGenie too literally]] leading to the episode's conflict. More gem shards are then used to bring Steven's clothes to life so they could bring Frybo down. In "Secret Team," the gem shards were able to grow mutated limbs and move around the temple, causing chaos. In the worst instance, shards of Crystal Gems defeated in the war were buried together and forced to fuse; these shards were conscious enough to briefly form human silhouettes and ''scream together in agony'' before turning into a horrible monster, which was seemingly conscious enough to recognize Garnet and silently reach out for help.
