* Invoked in ''Discworld/WyrdSisters'': The ghost of King Verence slips a pebble from the castle into Nanny Ogg's pocket while she's in the castle, allowing him to talk to her (the ghosts are bound to the castle stones). Unfortunately, this also causes the ''other'' ghosts to visit, and while Nanny doesn't mind some of them, the monkeyman (the castle was built over his burial mound) and the screaming woman in the chariot need to go.
* Cribbins stole a set of spring dentures from a man just before killing him in ''Discworld/MakingMoney'' which are possibly haunted by the previous owner's ghost. Certainly he has great difficulty in keeping the things in his mouth, [[spoiler:and finally exercizing LaserGuidedKarma at the climax when a spring goes through his brain.]]

* Obviously used in ''WraithTheOblivion'', where destroying a fetter is one of the best ways to get rid of a ghost, putting them through a BlackBugRoom.

* This is also used in ''{{Exalted}}''. The [[EldritchAbomination Neverborn]] are the ghosts of dead [[OurTitansAreDifferent Primordials]], and ''all of Creation'' is their fetter. Their goal is to [[OmnicidalManiac destroy Creation]] so they can fall into [[CessationOfExistence Oblivion]], as the cycle of rebirth was never designed for Primordials (they never imagined that they could actually die.)

* In the GirlsLove VisualNovel ''AkaiIto'', the [[MagicMirror Ryugetsu]] is the fetter for [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Nozomi]] [[CreepyTwins and Mikage]]. Destroying it ''might'' solve the problem permanently in [[CuttingOffTheBranches some routes]]. In other routes... let's say that it's [[OneWingedAngel just the beginning of the battle]].

to:

* Used a few times in the ''Franchise/TheWitcher'' universe, particularly when dealing with [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Wraiths]], especially those of the [[LightEmUp Noon]] and [[CastingAShadow Night]] variety. In this case, even if they're slain the wraith simply returns after a short while, drawn back by its fetter. Exorcising them normally involves finding the fetter, discovering its significance, and either returning it to the Wraith or preforming a ritual to purify/destroy it.
