Also frequently falling under this trope is the PoorMansVersion of severed heads kept alive in jars or on surfaces that can disguise the fact that the rest of the actor is beneath the table when the head is active, which at least has the advantage of allowing the actor to ''act'' in some scenes.

** While not a Devisor himself, the student Psike, a [[PsychicPowers PDP]] and one of the senior [[DaddysLittleVillain Bad Seeds]] in the 2006 stories, was 'rescued' by other students in this manner after an accident destroyed his body. He claims to prefer this, being contemptuous of ordinary 'meat bags', but does decide he needs a human body he can control remotely in order to take care of things his mind control, telekinesis, and sterling personality can't.

** ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' DLC ''Old World Blues'':
*** The Think Tank, who are a group of Pre-War {{Mad Scientist}}s who put their brains in floating robots with monitors for eyes and mouthes.
*** This also happens to the Player Character in this DLC as well. When you first arrive at the Think Tank your brain is extracted and replaced with cybernetic parts intended to allow your body to continue to function for simple slave labor. Somehow, as a result of a combination of an old head wound and a freak scientific accident, you retain coherent thought, even though your brain is elsewhere, allowing your "mind" to be in two places at once, with your brain being treated as a separate entity. Yeah Old World Blues is weird.
*** Your brain in Old World Blues can also be considered an entirely separate character, as it's floating in mentats, and therefore has gained separate thought from the player character, meaning you can have a conversation with it. Due to the mentat saturation it's incredibly intelligent, usually more so than the PC. It finds your quest for vengeance against Benny ill-advised and constantly berates you, despite technically being you, especially with low INT. You can flirt with it using certain perks, which it is disgusted by.
*** There's also the K9000, a minigun powered by the brain of a dog. It'll even bark, whine and growl and includes cybernetic ears and noses.

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'', the gang runs into a room with several flying brains in jars while fighting their way through the Hall of Mysteries. Ron (who's [[IntoxicationEnsues punch drunk]] at the time) starts playing with them and they begin to attack everyone... with tentacles made of ''thoughts''.
