* 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]].

* 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.

* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has this in droves. Class 3-A's resident CuteGhostGirl Sayo Aisaka's only initial fetter is [[AcademyOfAdventure Mahora Academy]] (she can't travel far outside the school). Later Kazumi Asakura, who has sat next to her for more than two years, serves as a fetter, a bit of a [[HeterosexualLifePartner different sort]]. Finally, she is given a doll to possess, which lets her travel to the [[MagicalLand magical world]] as well as have a physical body to manipulate.

* Obviously used in ''WraithTheOblivion'' where destroying a fetter is one of the best ways to get rid of a ghost
** Destroying all of a ghost's fetters will un-anchor them from reality causing them to be sucked into Oblivion, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Resolving said fetters (using the gun that killed the ghost as evidence to convict their murderer, for instance) will allow them to pass on to the true afterlife instead.

** The [[FunctionalMagic Arcanos]] Lifeweb allows a ghost to affect the living world directly through a fetter, break another ghost's connection to their fetter, and create new fetters for both themselves and other ghosts, among other things (it does ''not'', however, allow a ghost to resolve a fetter.)



* This is also used in ''{{Exalted}}''. The [[EldritchAbomination Neverborn]] are the ghosts of dead [[PowersThatBe 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.)

* When a person dies in ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'' they become a Plus, a ghost bound to their body by a length of chain coming from their chest called a "Chain of Fate". If the person has regrets about something when they die, the chain will become bound to that thing instead. They are then called Jiibakurei if the chain becomes attached to a place or a Tsukirei if it is to a person. If the Chain of Fate of a ghost is destroyed, they then become a [[TheHeartless Hollow]].

* Curls from ''Roleplay/{{AJCO}}'' is usually seen sporting a pair of goggles that she claimed from a decidedly unpleasant bandit after she killed him. She doesn't find out that they are linked to his ghost until ''after'' she accidentally summons him [[spoiler: and he throws her across the room while possessing Egg, before seriously wounding Nights by shooting her in the shoulder]].

* Spirit Monks in ''JadeEmpire'' could create these, but they didn't like to, finding it morally reprehensible. Emperor Sun Hai, after wiping out the Spirit Monks and stealing the Water Dragon's power, didn't have such qualms. For instance, Death's Hand is [[spoiler:the spirit of his brother, bound into their other brother's armor]].
