* Something similar in Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Mirror Dance]]'', although here's it's a code-key embedded in a ring, not a biometric. Sounds squick-free? No, because the ring in question is apparently ''riveted to the owner's finger bone'' and quite impossible to remove...
** And to get past the lock requires both the ring, and a palm print.
*** The palm locks in that verse actually do read heat, pulse, and electrical conductivity -- as the protagonist points out, "dead hands don't open palm locks." Mark had to use some super assassin hacking skills to get past that.

* In ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', the Port-to-Port Killer once left an eye ball in an ice cube in Tony's drink at a bar. On a hunch, Jimmy brings it up to MTAC, and the door opens. We later see the man to whom it belongs (belonged), alive and well, just with an eye patch.
