* Orson Scott Card once jokingly referred to this as a possible solution to [[EndersGame Bean's]] condition. He also expressed serious revulsion at the idea, so we probably don't have to worry about him following through with it.

* ''Comicbook/DoomPatrol'' villain The Brain in TheDCU. In one continuity he finally does manage to get a body--only to die in an explosion a few minutes later, moments before kissing his right hand man, Mallah, to whom he'd just confessed his love for. Who's a talking French gorilla. You had a ''brain in a jar in a robot being in love with a homosexual talking French gorilla''. Gotta love comics!

* ''Emperor Mollusk versus The Sinister Brain'' by A. Lee Martinez. The Brain turns out to be part of an AncientConspiracy of such brains called the Council of Egos who want to take over the universe. They consist of all the great minds of human history (except Hitler, who got flushed for being too argumentative). AlbertEinstein also turned down the offer, claiming the process had turned them into delusional megalomaniacs. The Council think this idea is so ridiculous they spend a good deal of time laughing maniacally over it.
