* In the British murder mystery ''Messiah,'' the serial killer brutally murders his victims, [[spoiler: who have the names of the {{Jesus}}' twelve apostles,]] and takes out their tongues, replacing them with spoons. [[spoiler: This isn't just a reference to "speaking in tongues" - his final target is Judas, the "silver tongued devil" - or to put it another way, the liar. The manner in which his eleven victims are killed echo the death of their biblical namesake]].

* ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}'' (a novella of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): A random beggar asks passers-by what part of a body they are, and takes their answers completely seriously. He says that he is working on a theory that each person is actually just a part of the organism that is the city. [[spoiler:He himself is a HiveMind of [[TheWormThatWalks thousands of insects called hordelings]], so this isn't just idle curiosity]].

* Eyes figure prominently throughout ''WesternAnimation/KuboAndTheTwoStrings''. Kubo had his eye taken from him by his grandfather, his mother gains a long scar across her left eye [[spoiler: that is duplicated on Monkey's right as a clue to her identity]], one of the armor pieces is kept in the sea among eye yokai, and [[spoiler: the Moon King becomes a human with one working eye after the climax of the film, having been blind (both literally and figuratively) beforehand.]]

\n* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable'': Yoshikage Kira, the BigBad, has an excessive focus on hands. His whole MO as a SerialKiller is to kill women and keep their hands as "girlfriends" doing so after finding arousal upon seeing the Mona Lisa's hands. His RedRightHand involves his fingernails growing at an alarming rate whenever he feels the urge to kill, resulting in a lot of focus on his hands as his pent up aggression makes them grow longer and longer. His Stand, Killer Queen, makes bombs out of things by touching them with his hands, and Sheer Heart Attack is deployed from its hands. The damage to Sheer Heart Attack is synchronized directly to Kira's hand, and he later chops it off to set SHA free to attack everyone.

** Another body motif is [[IncrediblyLamePun embodied]] in Tenma's hands, which are steady during surgery but shake before his attempt to [[spoiler:kill Johan]].

* In the ''Franchise/StarWars'' saga, the severing of the hand or arm occurs frequently. This is such a well known motif that in ''Episode II: Attack of the Clones'' Anakin's [[IncrediblyLamePun disarming]] is teased during the factory sequence before actually occuring at the [[IncrediblyLamePun hands]] of Count Dooku. In ''Franchise/StarWars'' the severing of the arm or hand of an adversary is the most common way to defeat an opponent ''without killing them'', making Count Dooku's actions particularly significant.

* Likewise, ''Webcomic/SupernormalStep'' uses an eye motif. [[LaResistance The Nameless]], an anti-[[StateSec Henderson Security]] group, is represented by a stylized eye. This eye appears all over the place, including on background characters (for example, Akela, a minor character, is almost guaranteed to get more development because she wears The Nameless's eye). Cecilia, the most important character so far, wears more detailed eye imagery on occasion. One can theorize that this represents how the resistance [[IncrediblyLamePun has eyes everywhere]].
