** Magic Man also turns Jake into one in "Everything's Jake," which [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructs]] the trope.

* ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST'' features an interesting variation with New Mombasa, a city run by an artificial intelligence called the Superintendent, or "Virgil." Its influence is limited during the game itself, during which it sends you a map of the city through a videophone, unlocks supply caches marked with its "face," and sends audio files that tell the story of a girl trying to rescue her father, who works with the Superintendent; in the audio files, the Superintendent's full ability, ranging from controlling garbage trucks to stoplights, is shown.

* ''{{Albion}}'' has Argim, a former [[HumanoidAlien Iskai]]. During one of his experiments to find the secret of true immortality, Argim lost his body, and his consciousness entered the living plants that [[{{Bizarchitecture}} made up his home]], and the creatures that took up residence there. The only way to communicate with him is by finding his brain (well an extension to it), which is still intact and has grown to just the right size to block the path to the MacGuffin.
* Gaia in ''{{Tsukihime}}''. All the other planets are essentially alive as well, though nothing happens there. In VisualNovel/FateStayNight this is expanded on to include Akasha, which exists alongside Gaia in some form or another. People have tied their existences to such things and made themselves nearly indestructible.

* Terry Brooks also used this trope in his ''MagicKingdomOfLandover'' series, wherein the castle Sterling Silver is alive and aware, its purpose in life to shelter and protect the High King and his household. Later on, it is revealed that the royal library Libiris has similar properties, being descended, as it were, from Sterling Silver.

** It's argued in-universe that [[MadScientist Zola]], courtesy of his BrainUploading and the resultant {{Technopath}}ic abilities that come with it, is a Genius Loci of sorts. [[spoiler: Best demonstrated when he seizes control of Avengers Tower.]]
