* AssassinsCreed: The Sage is a human being reincarnated throughout history, always picking up PastLifeMemories all the way back to prehuman times when he reaches a certain age (and manifesting heterochromia). He's strongly implied to be the origin of the Wandering Jew story, and one of his incarnations is the RealLife Count of St. Germain, who claimed to be this trope. His purpose seems to be [[spoiler: to bring back the extinct AbusivePrecursors, since he himself used to be one of them.]]

* ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' episode ''The Mathematics of Tears'' is heavily based on The Flying Dutchman, although the Pax Magellanic's crew are [[spoiler:androids controlled by a rogue AI, not cursed humans]]. The Pax Magellanic draws the parallel herself, and plays the opera music frequently, considering it her theme song.

** Davy Jones in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest'' pilots a ship called the Flying Dutchman. His original purpose was to ferry souls across the sea at World's End. If his love was waiting after ten years, he would go on land again for a single day with her before returning to his duty for another ten years (and so on for eternity). His love was ''not'' waiting, so he abandoned his duties and became a {{badass}} roaming pirate. His crew turned into half-men half-sea-creatures.

* The Biblical Wandering Jew, usually referred to as Cartaphilus in story, is the closest thing MahouTsukaiNoYome has to an overarching villain. His main goal is to create a body for himself that feels no pain, and he doesn't care who or what has to pay the price to obtain it.

The Wandering Jew story can be traced to medieval Christianity -- in particular, a reference to [[http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=matthew%2016:28&version=KJV Matthew 16:28]], wherein Jesus states that some of the people listening to him speak would not die prior to Jesus "coming in his kingdom", which some believe to be a reference to the Second Coming. Since many ordinary lifespans had passed between Jesus' speech and the time of its progenitors, [[OffscreenInertia the myth arose]] that at least one of those ancient audience members had been for some reason sentenced to immortality.
