** Though un unusual limb, Son Gohan losing his tail several times (and regrowing it with effort later) counts, as without the tail, Saiyan don't convert to monster ape form when hit by the moonlight.

* Alvin the Treacherous from ''Literature/HowToTrainYourDragon'' starts off with a HookHand, explaining that he lost his hand to the booby-trapped coffin of Grimbeard the Ghastly. He then proceeds to lose another body part for each encounter with Hiccup and his friends, until he is a one-eyed, one-handed, one-legged, noseless, hairless shell of a man.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Yamamoto sacrifices his arm in battle to blow up Aizen. After Aizen is eventually defeated, Yamamoto never seeks help in having the arm replaced or restored, both of which are possible. When he and Yhwach meet in battle for the first time in a thousand years, Yhwach tells him that he's become weak and is no longer the formidable opponent Yhwach remembers. To Yhwach, Yamamoto's missing arm represents the loss of Yamamoto's ruthless, thuggish nature which is what made him so dangerous in the past. Yamamoto's refusal to ask Orhime to restore his lost arm is what Yhwach cites as the reason why he so easily defeats Yamamoto and steals his Bankai. The defeat of Yamamoto sets off a chain of events that changes the entire direction of the Gotei 13, and opens the Royal Realm to being conquered.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Limb loss during battle is extremely common but only a few incidents are examples of this trope:
** After being defeated by Ichigo, gate-guardian Jidanbou gets his arm lopped off by Captain Ichimaru for daring to open the gate to let in the invaders.
** Grimmjow's rebellious disobedience of Aizen's orders results in his arm getting destroyed by Tousen.
** To produce a monster capable of defeating multiple lieutenants without taking a single scratch, Sun-Sung, Mila-Rose and Apacci sacrifice their left arms to create it.
** Ichigo's brutal defeat of Ulquiorra resulted in Ichigo, in his hollow form, tearing Ulquiorra's limbs off him.
** Yamamoto uses a forbidden kidou to sacrifice his left arm in battle with Aizen.
** In the Thousand Year Blood War arc, Kira loses half his torso and arm in an ambush strike and Byakuya's body is ripped to shreds by his own (stolen) bankai. These injuries change the entire tone of the story, making the final arc, and its major villains, much DarkerAndEdgier than the previous story had been.
** Yumichika slashes Bambietta's right arm to prevent her from blowing up Ikkaku's face, but Giselle observes it's a useless move. [[spoiler:As Bambietta's already dead, nothing they can do to her will stop her thanks to way her zombification powers work.]]
** When the [[spoiler: Spirit King]] is seen first, he has all of his limbs. The next time, he has ''neither'' of them...
