* In the ending of ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfWar'', [[spoiler:events lead to Talion willingly picking up a Ring of power, which give him back his powers and keeps him alive after Celebrimbor betrayed him. He doesn't turn into a Nazgûl [[HeroicWillpower until decades later]] however, and uses his powers to fight against Sauron's forces. He finally loses his humanity in the GoldenEnding. (And in the FinalBoss of the [[PovSequel first story DLC]]) Fortunately, the AlternateTimeline implies he didn't have to serve the Dark Lord for long, and he died swiftly after the One Ring is destroyed.]]

The king says: “Never since my mother bore me have I heard that a dead skull can speak.” The king summons the Alkali, the Saba, and the Degi and asks them if they have ever heard the like. None of the wise men has heard the like, and they decide to send guards out with the hunter into the bush to find out if his story is true and, if so, to learn the reason for it. The guards accompany the hunter into the bush with the order to kill him on the spot should he have lied.\\

The guards and the hunter come to the skull. The hunter addresses the skull: “Skull, speak.” The skull is silent. The hunter asks as before: “What brought you here?” The skull does not answer. The whole day long the hunter begs the skull to speak, but it does not answer. In the evening the guards tell the hunter to make the skull speak, and when he cannot, the guards kill the hunter in accordance with the king’s command.\\

* According to Japanese mythology, killing many {{youkai}} (a thousand, according to some versions) results in their slayer being transformed into a youkai himself. Then again, anyone capable of killing 1000 demons is powerful enough to be considered a demon himself by most people, so this could just be a LampshadeHanging on that fact. This belief is the reason why there's quite a number of Japanese works (be it anime, manga, game, music, etc) have this trope in it.
