* Happens at least once in ''Manga/FrankenFran'', when a guy brings Fran his girlfriend's severed head. [[spoiler:Although [[StalkerWithACrush he's not actually her boyfriend]], and is responsible for decapitating her in the first place.]] Fran manages to keep her alive by removing some of the brain and using the space to install a small system of vital organs, including a digestive tract. Later Fran attaches a hand so the head can move around. After that, [[spoiler: she gives the victim a full, monsterous body, and she takes revenge on her "boyfriend", who discovered too late that her memory of him wasn't removed with those pieces of brain.]]

* ComicBook/{{MODOK}} ([[FunWithAcronyms Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing]]) from the MarvelUniverse, pictured above. He was originally a normal human mook before he got shoved ''very'' unwillingly into the machine that transformed him. Then he used his new hyperintelligence and psychic abilities to take over the organization. Despite his appearance, he's not a true Cephalothorax. He's got a normal-looking body and a truly massive head, and can only sit or move about at all because of the floating chair thing.
