* During ''Literature/TheImmortals'' Emperor Ozorne is given an artifact to be used in a moment of greatest need, that will take him from his enemies "on wings of steel". At the climax of ''Emperor Mage'', forced with a choice between surrendering and going on trial, and being killed by hyenas, he TakesAThirdOption and produces the artifact... which transforms him into an immortal harpy-creature that leaves him unable to use his old magic or hold his throne at all.

* Rather sad example in ''Manga/DGrayMan''. How so? Well Allen Walker out of his sadness at his adopted father's death accidently has him transformed by the Millennium Earl ''post-mortem'', turning him into the skeleton for a human-killing machine. Said skeleton then curses Allen's left eye, before being torn to shreds by the [[TykeBomb kid's newly awoken powers]].

** The [[SpaceElves Eldar]] have adopted this on a racial scale - every one of them wears a [[SoulJar Waystone]] at all times, which will capture their soul upon death and allow it to be placed within their Craftworld's Infinity Circuit for all eternity. It's not a true afterlife, much less a paradise, but the alternative is having their soul [[FateWorseThanDeath consumed by the Chaos God Slaanesh]]. In dire emergencies an Eldar's soul may be recovered from the Infinity Circuit and used to pilot a Wraithguard or Wraithlord construct in battle, but the Eldar view this practice as akin to necromancy, since it's irreversible and means that the pilot's soul is lost if its Wraith- construct is destroyed.

* In ''Videogame/{{Gungrave}}'', Bob Poundmax's BigEater habits eventually caught up with him. He would have died of a blood clot in his brain if he hadn't been transformed into a Superior(an Orgman capable of free will/sentient thought). Not only did this save his life, it granted him superhuman abilities and even allowed him to keep enjoying chicken drumsticks.

** While Angron's transformation into a Daemon Prince had plenty of other benefits, the main reason Lorgar helped him ascend was to save him from dying due to the Butcher's Nails slowly degrading his brain. However, the transformation also caused the Nails to be bonded even deeper into his body with flesh growing over them. While the Nails won't kill Angron anymore, they are now even more a part of him.

* Part of Torvald's backstory in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}''. Left torn basically into pieces in a wrecked spaceship floating through space with all other crew dead, he gave the ship's robots one final command: "Repair me." Now he's a head, one arm, and a chunk of a torso grafted onto a robotic body that includes features like a jetpack, mortar cannons, a target designation laser, and a personal forcefield, all powered by a fusion core that burns what he eats as fuel to keep him alive.

* In an early WebOriginal/ShadowrunStorytime session, Geppetto gets a chestful of automatic gunfire. The closest the team has to an emergency trauma surgeon contact is a ghoul organlegger named John. If he does the work, Geppetto ''will'' contract HMHVV. Geppetto acknowledges the risk and accepts it. Dr. John has him infected with a different strain first so he turns into a banshee instead of a ghoul, something that can still pass for metahuman.
