* In ''Literature/{{Twig}}'', Sylvester reaches this point with the help of the Wyvern drug, becoming a more of less blank slate directed by hallucinatory versions of his friends.

* In Cassette #5 of ''Podcast/WithinTheWires'' TheNarrator warns of the fate of an intractably violent patient at a research hospital, eventually sent to the Extensive Studies Lab to undergo "[[{{Lobotomy}} carpentry]]."
-->'''Narrator''': No one smelled sawdust. As I record this cassette I am looking at that patient, right now. Looking. Right. At. It.

** Dr. Destiny also ended up like this after overdosing on sleeping medicine and overexposure to the dream machine. In his last appearance in the show, he is lying in Blackgate's hospital, comatose with his eyes open [[IronicNurseryTune and humming "Frere Jaques"]].

* Victims of the Anti-Life Equation in TheDCU are turned into this. Forever and ever. And all it takes is to hear the Equation '''''once'''''. [[spoiler:Fortunately, the Life Equation can counter it.]]

* In ''FanFic/QueenOfBlood'' [[spoiler:Bakuda]] ends up like this after being left to the tender mercies of the succubi with only orders to keep her alive. The demons fed on her energy and, when she attempted suicide, crippled her so she couldn't harm herself. The stress became too much so they took to wiping her mind whenever she would fall apart; by the time Taylor finds out, [[spoiler:Bakuda]] is a mewling, mindless wreck that behaves more like an abused animal than human.

* During one episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', [[ButtMonkey Kenny]] is killed and sent to Heaven to command the heavenly host against an invasion from Hell. Halfway through the episode, Kenny disappears from Heaven, as his body had been resuscitated on earth, but in a persistent vegetative state. The doctors [[LampshadeHanging point out]] that Kenny has the capacity to exist in this state for years.
--> '''Doctor:''' "Brain cells cannot be repaired once dead. But his soul is still in here. Almost... trapped in here, if you will."

* Whether created by magic or bleeding-edge technology, clones in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' are this. Using the mid-level [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Clone]] spell requires an alchemical laboratory to grow another, soulless body for a creature; in the event of their death, the creature wakes up in the inert body. Technological artifacts, on the other hand, are capable of completely rebuilding a body FromASingleCell, but if the creature being rebuilt is, for whatever reason, still alive, a soulless shell is the end result, and dies within hours of being created.

* In the Literature/HumanxCommonwealth, mindwiping is a more typical punishment for extreme crimes than execution. While public information sources all insist that convicts who receive this sentence merely have their criminal tendencies removed, one villain from ''The Deluge Drivers'' opted to die rather than be caught and mindwiped, because he doesn't believe the official sources and thinks this trope is what it ''really'' invokes.

* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', [[spoiler: Magical Girls themselves]] are revealed to be this. [[spoiler: Or more technically, their bodies are. A Magical Girl's soul exists inside a special gem, which powers their magical abilities and serves as their only vital component. Meanwhile, their original body becomes little more than a remotely-operated corpse they use to fight and get around. This fact never even becomes apparent until Madoka throws Sayaka's soul gem over the edge of a bridge onto a passing truck, where it's revealed that being too far from the gem causes a Magical Girl's body to revert to a corpse]]. None of the characters take any of this news well.

** In fact, ever since ''VideoGame/KirbyCanvasCurse'', it seems that all final bosses end up becoming this, either by completely being overwhelmed by their own madness or single-minded desires and sacrificing ''everything'' about their being just to gain the power to destroy everything around them.
