* In [[http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/man-arrested-china-ripping-out-eating-mans-heart-1454564 China,]] two men had an altercation over a [[DisproportionateRetribution bowl of noodles.]] One of the men drew out a knife and cut the other's throat. Then he used the still bloody knife to slice open the man's chest and pulled out his heart. The eyewitnesses swore the organ was still beating. Even worse is that the killer walked around with the heart in his hand while occasionally ''[[ImAHumanitarian biting into it]]''

* A functioning artificial heart implant will continue to pump until it runs out of battery power or is purposefully switched off, even after its recipient expires from a stroke or other non-cardiac ailment. At autopsy, such a device may be re-activated by the M.E. to run diagnostics and assess its possible role in the patient's death.

* A variation is found in an old ''{{Superman}}'' comic. In an attempt to live forever, a character is implanted with a pacemaker that is remotely tied to a device at the Earth's core. Too bad that every heart murmur he experiences now sends shockwaves throughout the planet, and vice-versa. Ouch.

* In Neil Gaiman's short story ''Snow, Glass, Apples'' (in which ''Snow-White'' is shown from the perspective of the evil queen), the Queen has Snow-White's heart cut from her chest, but it continues to beat, and the girl lives on. When she finally kills the girl with a poisoned apple, the heart stops -- but when the prince revives her, the heart begins to beat once more.
* In EdgarAllanPoe's ''The Tell-Tale Heart'', the killer-protagonist imagines he [[TerribleTicking still hears]] the beating of his victim's heart.

* In ''The Knight of the Swords'' by Michael Moorcock, Corum has to kill the Chaos God Arioch. To do this he must destroy Arioch's heart. Which he keeps locked in a tower, so it will be safe. Corum is running around with the Hand of Kwll and the Eye of Rhynn, two other disconnected god body parts, so there's a lot of this sort of thing going on.

* In an alternate-organ variation, the first book of the ''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.

* [[Videogame.MortalKombat Mortal Kombat]], before becoming increasingly complicated with each passing game, originally had 7 characters and each had one fatality move, and Kano's original fatality was to tear his opponent's heart out and hold it high in the air in one hand while it continued to beat, and the game would play the sound effect of a beating heart until the fade-out at the end of the fight.

Life is precious, Janos discovered, as it was torn - throbbing and bleeding - from his own body." In the later games, it becomes an important Mac Guffin, since Janos Audron can be revived by putting the still-beating heart back into his chest. Raziel eventually [[spoiler:gets to watch his past self tear Janos' heart from his body, and later learns that Mortanius used the Heart of Darkness to resurrect Kain...by placing it inside him.]]

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.

It's her heart, and apparently, squeezing it is quite painful to her. (Probably inspired by the Manga/InuYasha-example above.)

Since his Spark is said to have mutated (and supposedly indestructible) Megatron cuts it in half with an Energon knife, and keeps one half [[SoulJar in a spiked cage]] which he squeezes at will to keep Rampage under his control.

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.
