** Happens in an episode of the ''The Itchy and Scratchy Show'', of course.
*** [[AC:
course. Scratchy gives Itchy a heart-shaped Valentine. Itchy responds by plunging his hand into Scratchy's chest and handing him his still-beating heart. The naively grateful Scratchy places it on a shelf at home, then picks up a newspaper with the [[WorstNewsJudgmentEver headline]] "[[CaptainObvious YOU NEED A HEART TO LIVE.]]LIVE]]." In a panic, he reaches for his heart, only to keel over dead.

* In the ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' quest 'Mehrunes Razor', you find that the final test that must be passed to obtain the eponymous artifact is to devour the still-beating heart of Mehrunes' previous champion -- after you've torn it from his chest, that is. Doing so will turn you into a vampire, if you haven't already immunized yourself.
** There's, of course, the central MacGuffin of ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' - the heart ("divine center") of the god, Lorkhan.

to:

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The still-beating heart of the [[GodIsDead dead creator god]], Lorkhan, was ripped from his chest by the other spirits who participated in creation for his perceived treachery and cast down into the world he helped to create. It would remain there for thousands of years, at least until the events of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]''.

* 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.

* In one strip of ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'', Russia's [[PsychopathicManchild Russia's]] heart somehow falls out and splats onto the meeting table, to the horror of the other Allies. Even more frighteningly, Russia himself [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction doesn't seem bothered at all]]; he only blushes and says that it just "pops out of [him], sometimes."

* In ''EternalDarkness'', dancing girl Ellia is given one of Mantorok's five hearts, which contains its essence. Since [[spoiler:Mantorok doesn't die until just after the end of the game]], the heart remains intact for over 1000 years so that Alex can use it in the final battle. Unfortunately, you don't see the heart beating in-game (presumably to match the other essences, which don't move in any way), so this trope is only partly adhered to.

* In Robin Jarvis' ''Literature/Hagwood'' trilogy, the evil High Lady of Hollow Hill, Rhiannon, is literally heartless. That's because she used magic to remove it from her body and place it in a casket where it still beats. To open the casket and stab it is the only way to kill her.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' and ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'', the heroes deal with a monster called the Hatchasaurus/Dora Antaeus. Both were completely invincible in some manner and would grow stronger unless its heart (unnamed in ''Zyuranger'' and called Cardiatron in ''MMPR'') was taken out. Jason/Geki would be forced to hop inside the monster to fight its heart, using the former power of Tommy/Burai to defeat it and also save Dragonzord/Dragon Cesar.

* In an alternate-organ variation, the first book of the ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'' series mentions a variant of the RealLife Viking "blood eagle" torture, in which a victim's lungs are pulled out of slits in their back. In the universe of ''HisDarkMaterials'', where everyone has a daemon-spirit companion, ''this isn't immediately fatal'', as the victim's daemon is reputedly able to prolong life for a time by manually pumping the protruding lungs of its companion.

** In another episode, Homer picks a fight with a group of Shaolin monks during a trip to China - their retaliation concludes with one of the monks ripping his still-beating heart out, showing it to him, and then ''shoving it back into his chest'', whereafter he walks away no worse for wear (and was mildly annoyed that he didn't wipe his hands).
** And then there's the episode where the girl Bart is interested in tells him she has a boyfriend, and worse, it's Jimbo. Bart {{imagine| spot}}s her tearing out his heart and throwing it in the garbage.
** The earliest mention on ''The Simpsons'' is ''When Flanders Failed'' where Bart references a move in the arcade game to cover having ditched karate lessons he was forced to attend: the Touch of Death, where one person rips out the other person's heart in a single jab. He proceeds to threaten Lisa with the move when she disbelieves him.

** Another ''Simpsons'' example: In the Treehouse of Horror short "Hell Toupe", Homer, [[ItMakesSenseInContext possessed by Snake by means of a hair transplant,]] kills Moe by removing his heart with a corkscrew. The heart beats after its removal.
