* As the primary method of obtaining exotic crafting materials in ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' is carving them out of the steaming carcasses of giant monsters, this is both a present trope and driving motivation in the game. Aside from somewhat mundane materials, such as pelts or bones, some larger monsters outright have some organs identified ingame as gems. In addition to the internal organs, some truly massive beasts can also provide minerals by mining their hard outer carapaces.

* The SuperHero ComicBook/{{Darkhawk}} is a rare humanoid example, bearing a ruby amulet inside of his chest. At one point, the villain Tombstone tore it out, believing it was valuable. [[spoiler: Darkhawk recovered]]

* Dragons in ''VisionOfEscaflowne'' have a magical gemstone at their heart that can then be used to power guymelefs.
* Organ replacement version in BusouRenkin: Kazuki has a Kakugane in his chest because he blundered into a monster and died, kicking off the plot.

* In ''LegendOfMana,'' part of the Mana series, there are a race of humans called "Jumi" who all have some sort of precious gem in their chest. If it gets damaged, they could die.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''{{Literature/Everworld}},'' our heroes actually get this in one book--after being drafted by the dragon [[NobleDemon Nidhoggr]] to recover some stolen items, he magically replaces the hearts of [[HeroicWannabe David]], [[TheSmurfettePrinciple April]], [[TheSmartGuy Jalil]] and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Christopher]] with rubies which will kill them after six days. He doesn't try giving [[TokenEvilTeammate Senna]] one, which kind of frightens David. It turns out that, because she's a witch, [[spoiler:her heart is so hard that it would need to be replaced by a diamond. Nidhoggr was just being cheap]].

* The Gems of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' quite literally ''are'' sentient gemstones, their humanoid bodies being merely constructs used to interact with the world. As such, they can [[FromASingleCell regenerate from any injury given enough time]], but damage to their central Gem is life-threatening.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has the Crystal Gems. It's implied that the immortal Crystal Gems can die, but also can regenerate as long as their central Gem is intact.

* A quite literal example from ''TenraBanshoZero'': the "heart engines" powering the HumongousMecha of the setting each contain the actual heart of one of [[spoiler:the native Oni people]], who are widely (and largely incorrectly) considered savage monsters by the local humans. Perhaps needless to say, this little secret is not something the people in the know feel exactly inclined to share with the general populace.

* Part of the backstory for ''{{Myst}} V: End of Ages'' reveals that this is true of the Laki, which appear to be something like [[CallARabbitASmeerp otherworldly narwhals]]. The Laki collect gemstones in their gizzards to help them digest, and (before the cities in their world were destroyed by plague) were hunted almost to extinction in gladiatorial games to harvest them. They survived, but they don't get close enough to for the player to interact with them.
