** In the spin-off RPG ''TabletopGame/DarkHeresy'', player characters are slowly corrupted when they see or handle heretical artefacts or phenomena, culminating in "mutations". One of them is that the character is no longer allowed to die: They will always come back, suffering additional corruption each time, until they fall to Chaos.

* Discussed in Film/JusticeLeague2017 when Bruce suggests using the ArtifactOfDoom to [[spoiler: revive Superman]]; Barry even makes a reference to PetSematary. [[spoiler: Ultimatly averted. Sups was confused and [[{{Understatment}} grumpy]] when he first woke up, but after he had a bit of time to get his marbles together he proved to be the same True-Blue hero we all know and love.]]

* In ''{{Series/Gotham}}'', the main project Professor Hugo Strange is working on in Arkham is finding a method to revive the dead. He finally manages it through a variation of Mr. Freeze's life-preserving ice invention, but the process of a mind returning to it's corpse turns out to be so traumatic that the subject is driven insane with very little of their original personality in tact. Strange is forced to use stories to help the subjects build new personalities and even than the new personality tends to be badly unhinged; when [[spoiler: Theo Galavan is brought back, Strange uses old religious knight legends and in the process turns Galavan into the insane KnightTemplar Azrael]].
** This all makes it rather frightening when the process is performed on [[spoiler: Fish Mooney]] and she not only comes back with her mind in tact, but also [[spoiler: with her latent metahuman powers activated.]] Strange was already at a loss to explain the ressurection process and this ends up throwing him for an even bigger loop.

*** Discussed in storyline "The Way of the World". The eponymous heroine is trying to save a young cancer victim named Thomas. Unfortunately, Thomas dies, but she thinks a blood transfusion of another super-hero's nanite-laced blood may revive Thomas. Franchise/{{Superman}} tries to dissuade her, stating that "the transfusion might bring Thomas back as something inhuman... a blazing skull, a monster, or worse."

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has seemingly every type of magic ''except'' for true resurrection, leading to all deaths being {{Final Death}}s in-universe. (There is {{Necromancy}}, but that's not ''quite'' the same thing...) In the few in-universe cases where someone has had some success with true resurrection, the person that is resurrected is typically either deranged in some way or suffers from some other issue.

[[spoiler:Too bad for him the idyllic afterlife he remembers was just about the stained glass window above his coffin in the funeral parlor, which would have been the very first thing his traumatized, fogged mind would see when he revived]].

**It's worth noting that the bulk of the damage was in the left frontal lobe, which is also the section of the brain targeted during the now-obsolete practice of lobotomy. Gage's case was the confluence of several factors, including: post-injury infection caused by the town doctor rooting around with his fingers inside Gage's braincase, damage to the frontal white matter of his brain (which is a critical regulatory structure in addition to other important functions, and the fact that he explosively lobotomized himself with a meter long, six-kilo iron bar. However, it's equally important to note that the majority of the symptoms ascribed to Gage's injury have, over the years, been both exaggerated from the truth as well as just outright fabricated. Much of the blame for this belongs to doctor John Harlow, who was responsible for Gage's initial treatment. Rather than acquiring a reliable patient history, Harlow encouraged the belief that Gage's blast to the brain turned him into a psychopath, likely in a bid for personal fame.

* Various things in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'':
** As revealed in the ''Heavensward'' expansion, [[spoiler:Primals are not creatures that are created through numerous crystals and the prayers of others, their figures warped and their negative traits ramped up. This can happen even if someone knew the being being created, as the dragon Tiamat tried to bring back Bahamut and what she got was a demonic creature who would cause trouble for Eorzea centuries later.]]
** At the end of ''A Realm Reborn'', [[spoiler:Y'Shtola and Thancred escape the attacking Brass Braves and Crystal Braves through an DangerousForbiddenTechnique teleportation spell callled "Flow", sending them spiraling into the aether. When they are pulled out, Y'Shtola is rendered blind and Thancred has lost his ability to use magic.]]
