-->I don't wanna be buried in a pet sematary\I don't want to live my life again.

* ''ComicBook/XMen'' villain Trevor Fitzroy (a time traveler who hails from one of the Marvel Universe's many possible {{Bad Future}}s) eventually had this retconned into his origin story. He was once a heroic freedom fighter in his own time, but when he was killed and his specific powers were needed, Layla Miller user her own powers to bring him back to life. But Layla can only revive bodies, not souls. So the Fitzroy that caused so much carnage in his other appearances turns out to have been evil because he was literally soulless.

** In "Silence in the Library," Miss Evangelista is saved, in the computer sense, by the Doctor Moon and CAL. Unluckily, the saving was corrupted and she became horribly ugly yet astoundingly intelligent. By the end of "Forest of the Dead," she got better... still dead, but better.

* The protagonists of the horror short story "TheMonkeysPaw" get ThreeWishes with the title artifact, only to find out you have to BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor. The first wish is for a pile of money, which they get as compensation for the horrific death of their son. The second wish, made in a rash moment of extreme grief, is for their son to come back. The father quickly realizes this trope will be in effect given the way the first wish came about. The audience/reader never actually sees ''what'' comes back, because just as the mother is about to open the door and let their "son" in, her husband uses the third and final wish to undo the second one and she finds nothing and no-one there.

* This is Takako Sugiora's justification for attacking Mei Misaki (and convincing most of her classmates to do the same) in the anime version of ''[[Literature/{{Another}}]]''. Becomes somewhat tragic when you realize she was mostly ''right'', but drew the wrong conclusion, and no one ever tried to explain otherwise.

* The horror film ''Film/TheLazarusEffect'' is based around this. The trailers show a team of scientists attempting a process to bring the dead back to life, testing it on a dead dog. When one of their team dies in an accident during the trial, the head of the team (her fiance) desperately tries the process on her. She comes back, but she's inexplicably evil and demonic now.

* In the original comic book ''Comicbook/TheCrow'' the titular character is arguably somewhere between Types 1, 2 and 4. He's not a monster, and appears to have returned from the dead relatively human, but virtually the only memories left in his head are of his and his fiance's deaths, the people who caused them, and an unstoppable desire for revenge. During the story arc, he experiences moments of EmptyShell, rage and near superhuman physical abilities, and very human moments. The movie version didn't bring this across quite as clearly, possibly because further scenes of his resurrection had yet to be filmed when Brandon Lee died on-set.

* This is the powerset for adult Layla Miller, aka Butterfly from ''Comicbook/{{X-Factor}}''. She can resurrect the dead, but the soul doesn't get reattached to the revived body.

* Osiris from the [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Ancient Egyptian pantheon]] died repeatedly only to return a short while later, suffering several indignities such as being resurrected without a penis, which was eaten by fish before it could be found and reattached. He averts the Trope in that he never came back in some monstrously horrific form, but true to it in that afterwards he was usually worse off than he was previously.

* In the DeanKoontz novel ''Shadow Fires'', Eric, a wealthy man with an extreme fear of death, subjects himself to an expermental regeneration formula, then is killed by a truck. However, he is brought back to life by his regeneration. That's the good news (in his opinion). The bad news? His death causes his HealingFactor to go out of control and starts mutating out of control in several horrible ways.
