* ''BaldursGate II'' has one part of a quest where you need to get one of these from a demon to be able to leave a particular dungeon. The expansion, ''Throne Of Bhaal'', requires you to destroy one (in fact, two) in order to make an enemy vulnerable, allowing you to kill him.

* During the Hunter Exam in ''HunterXHunter'', Killua must fight against a criminal who can crush limbs, and [[AxCrazy very much loves it]]. His response? [[NotSoHarmlessVillain Taking his heart out, still beating, and destroying it in front of his face]].

* In one strip of ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'', Russia's heart somehow falls out and splats onto the meeting table, to the horror of the other Allies. [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/axis_powers_hetalia/v01/c004/2.html Shown in a silly yet still creepy way.]]

* ''BattleAngelAlita'' at one point pulls out her robot heart to use as stakes in an arm wrestling game - placing it directly on the table, on her right side. It's still attached and functional though.

* Under this header because the characters ''react'' like it's a biologically natural occurrence, and no supernatural powers are stated to have been used, but in ''HunterXHunter'', Killua rips a man's heart clear out of his chest during one of the tests in the Hunters Exam, and stands several feet away from him, holding the still-beating heart in his hand. The guy, however, is still very much alive (if in extreme pain), even begging for Killua to "give that back" and doesn't die until Killua crushes the heart to bits, at which point he instantly falls over, dead as a doornail. What the ''hell'' are humans in ''HunterXHunter'' made of, anyway?
* PlayedForLaughs in ''Manga/TheVoynichHotel'', when [[spoiler: Elena extracts her boyfriend Taizou's heart as she performs PsychicSurgery [[MundaneUtility to relieve his hangover.]] She's so giddy that she kisses and caresses it gently as the NightmareFetishist she is, then puts it back in him... and a liiiiiiittle more to the left than intended.]]

** And ''TransformersEnergon'' features Jetfire rescuing Inferno's spark after Inferno does a sun-dive. Good news for Inferno, but Jetfire holding Inferno's life essence casually in his hand is a bit weird.

* Also during one of the early episodes of ''TrinityBlood'', since a Methuselah can't be killed by just shooting it or cutting it, you have to do something to the heart. Abel Nightroad does it as a finishing move, and [[AndShowItToYou rips out the Methuselah's heart, holds it in his hand right in front of the Methuselah, and crushes it while the other watches.]]

* ''RatRace'' has a subplot about a courier transporting a donor heart for transplant, which gets lost by [[CaptainErsatz The Italian Mr. Bean]]. At one point a character is holding it when he touches an electric fence, which [[MagicalDefibrillator starts it right back up again]].
* ''CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'' parodies this, when Steve the Monkey, [[spoiler:while fighting a semi-sentient Gummy Bear, shoves his hand into its "chest" tears out a glob shaped like a heart, and ''eats it''.]]

* [[spoiler:True Assassin]] in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' has a Noble Phantasm that does this to people by exchanging their heart with a magical double and keeps the heart alive and beating while [[spoiler:Assassin]] destroys it at his leisure. This gets used on [[spoiler:Lancer and Kotomine -- unfortunately for Assassin, it doesn't work on the latter ''since he hasn't got a heart''.]]
** In the ''Unlimited Blade Works'' route, this is how [[spoiler: Gilgamesh]] kills [[spoiler: Ilya.]]

* [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in the ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' series with the [[KatanasAreJustBetter Shuraba Katana]], which is said to be fueled by the still beating heart of an Ashura demon. Interesting, DummiedOut content shows a special animation was supposed to play after Bayonetta used the sword that would have caused the hilt to open up and actually ''show'' the Ashura heart still beating, as well.
