* The initial framing device for ''VideoGame/CryptOfTheNecrodancer'' is that an inexperienced adventurer goes in search of her father, falls into the titular crypt... and has her heart removed before she can react, before the game even starts. The standout mechanic of the base game is that your heart (visibly beating on the HUD) is no longer under your control; it now beats in time with the crypt's music, and you have to synchronize all of your movements to your heartbeat or they'll fail... or in some circumstances kill you outright.

* In the [[VideoGame/ShadowWarrior2013 Shadow Warrior remake]], you can use a Demon Heart, which you can get off dead demons, as a one-shot weapon that kills every lesser enemy in front of you.

* In ''WebAnimation/MysterySkullsAnimated'' Lewis's glowing "heart" beats to the rhythm of the music and rests on the outside of his ribcage. It is eventually shown to actually be a locket though it is still integral to his continued existence as his ghostly form can retreat into it and its condition reflects his moods and state.

* In ''FanFic/FellowshipOfTheRaven'', the Baron of Vallaki dies this way when he attempts to lie to [[BigBad Strahd von Zarovich]] and blame the injuries ''he'' inflicted on [[MacGuffinGirl Ireena]] while interrogating her (for [[InterrogatedForNothing information she didn't even have, no less]]) on her monstrous older brother Izek, his own enforcer, before he realized [[StalkerWithACrush who she was to Strahd]].
