* Due to plot complications involving the source of his agelessness, the eponymous protagonist of the German pulp series ''ProfessorZamorra'' has recently (as of this writing) become dependent on his friend Rhett Saris not so much to stay alive as to keep his ''youth''; without him, he would revert to his actual chronological age, which while not actually enough to kill him -- the series hasn't run quite that long yet -- probably would force him to retire from fighting the various forces of evil. (This is complicated by the fact that Rhett himself might yet end up turning into a fairly major demon himself if one of Hell's long-term plans is ever allowed to reach fruition...and they both know it.)
* In the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' novels, it is common for bonded treecats to suicide after their human partner, or treecat romantic partner, dies. Since the natural lifespan of a treecat is considerably longer than that of a (pre-prolong) human, the bonding pretty much meant that bonding with a human meant that the treecat would sacrifice many decades of their lifespan.
** It is also stated that a human whose 'cat dies is likely to give up on their own life as well.
* Humans and their daemons in ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials''.
** A slight variation, in that it is possible to separate a daemon from their human with specialist equipment. In this case, both survive, but both are reduced to shadows of their former selves, as the daemon represents the human's soul. Separating them by any other means is fatal to both.

** The same thing happened to Picard and Dr. Crusher on ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', except it was an implant. It also made them able to read the other's thoughts.
** The Trill and their symbionts in the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' Verse: they share knowledge, and Trills can live just fine without a symbiote, but if a symbiote implanted in a Trill is removed the process invariably proves to be fatal to the host.
** The removal is not ''instantly'' fatal, nor the bonding instantly permanent. In one episode, a non-joined Trill ''hijacked'' the Dax symbiot from Jadzia and joined with it. Sisko recognized the new Dax, but, when the Trill refused to relinquish the symbiot, Sisko told him their friendship was over, since it would eventually mean Jadzia's death. Eventually, Jadzia recovered Dax and the other Trill was brought to justice.

* In ''Webcomic/UseSwordOnMonster'' the main character defeats a mage from another dimension. Believing he intends to torture her, she casts a spell on him that makes whatever hurt her hurt him as well (in her own dimension, the spell was used to punish DomesticAbuse). For the rest of the story the two are dependent on each other for survival.

** Shenron and Porunga also cease to exist (and their respective Dragon Balls turn to stone) if their creator dies. For Shenron, that's Kami, later replaced by Dende after Kami fuses with Piccolo. For Porunga, that's Grand Elder Guru, later replaced by Elder Moori after Guru passes away.

* In ''Webcomic/MysteryBabylon'', Kick Girl and Kill Boy share the same soul; if one of them is killed, the other will die as well. This doesn't stop Kill Boy from attempting to kill her anyway, as he bears a huge grudge against her and isn't afraid of dying.

* Similarly, in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', it's revealed that if [[spoiler:the Supreme Kai]] were to die, so would [[spoiler:Beerus]]. The reverse is, presumably, true. Goku surmises that he could defeat the latter if he defeated the former, but then decides that wouldn't be any fun. [[spoiler:Beerus]] is less than amused.
