* In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Vol. 2'' Ego is a giant disembodied brain embedded in the core of a planet he built with his MindOverMatter abilities. The human form he uses to interact with others is similarly constructed and he can make a new one in minutes if necessary.

** In the actual game, this is represented by an ability on the Eldrazi Titans (and a few other transcendental creatures, like the Elemental Incarnations) that shuffles them back into their owner's deck when they die, so while they can be dealt with, they will be back if the game goes long enough. However, this ability is sneakily used as a drawback, as they don't leave behind a corpse to reanimate.

* In ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'', the problem with fighting Lord of Storms is that his human form is just a shell he's using to communicate with people and use objects; his true form is the hurricane that follows "him" around.

* Mister Mxyzptlk, Vyndktvx, Qwsp, Bat-Mite, and other imps really exist in 5-dimensional space, beyond what 3-dimensional beings can perceive.

* ComicBook/{{Brainiac}} in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''. Even the smallest piece of him contains his complete consciousness- and he ''always'' has a back-up copy of himself stored somewhere. As such, he's one of the few opponents Superman ''will'' use lethal force on, because the Brainiac you can kill is always just one part of the whole.
** This is illustrated very creepily in the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode "Twilight", where Hawkgirl smashes Brainiac to pieces, apparently killing him- only for the team to be immediately surrounded by ''dozens'' of identical Brainiacs, all of which are identical extensions of the central consciousness. Yikes.

* This is how the Avatar in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' normally works: the Avatar's existence is mostly in the spiritual world; and reincarnates into one person at a time. This trope is actually inverted when in the Avatar State; by pulling all of itself into the physical world, the current Avatar wields tremendous power, but if he should die while in the Avatar State [[DeaderThanDead he'll have no way of reincarnating]].
