** Another novel starts with Anita finding a Naga that's been skinned alive by that story's BigBad. It lived only because it was an immortal creature and therefore that simply wasn't enough to kill it.
** In a third novel, Anita gets called to investigate a series of bizarre skinnings and mutilations: the victims were not only skinned alive, their genitals were cut off to leave it impossible to tell their gender as well. [[spoiler: It turned out that they weren't actually alive, they were zombies that had been animated by the book's BiggerBad]].

* Happens quite a bit in the various ''Franchise/{{Hellraiser}}'' movies, victims often partially to fully flayed, and some Cenobites bear the result of it as well. Those who come back from hell are an inversion; their skin is last to regenerate over their exposed muscles and veins.

* Season 5 of ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' reveals that Oliver Queen did this to an enemy Russian gangster {{Mook}} shortly before he returned to America at the start of the series. It's meant to showcase [[HiddenDepths just how deep the darkness goes in Oliver]]; his victim had actually confessed everything Oliver wanted earlier in the torture session. Oliver skinned him until he died from pain & blood loss ''[[KickTheDog just to assure himself he could do it]]''.

* One manga story by Creator/JunjiIto centers around an elementary school teacher being concerned for the wellbeing of one of her students, who has mysterious damage to his skin and has a habit of peeling away pictures tacked to the wall. [[spoiler:She eventually discovers that the boy's father discovered a formula that let one peel off their skin like a suit, allowing them to walk around without it. He died out of the horror of his discovery. The boy's mother decided that a skinless body is absolutely beautiful and did it to herself, keeping her own skin in a tank of water and only wearing it every so often so she wouldn't dry out. She had been trying to perform the same process on her son, but her sister kept sabotaging it so that the formula was strong enough to damage the boy's skin but not strip it off. When the climactic fight causes the mother's skin to be destroyed, she rips off her sister's skin in an attempt to steal it for herself.]] Just another [[SarcasmMode delightful]] tale from our favorite horror artist.
