* ''FanFic/MegaManDefenderOfTheHumanRace'' uses devices called memory cores, which function like the IC chips from the games and comic book. They hold a robot's memory and personality, so destroying one is the equivalent of killing off the robot for good.



** Nova in Kirby Super Star. As you shoot the pillars shooting at you, his heart/core floating in the background gets hurt as well.
** Star Dream Soul OS from Kirby: Planet Robobot. The first phase of the battle is basically a ground version of the Nova fight. In the second phase, you directly attack the heart until it uses a OneHitKill attack and then dies.

* In one ''WebVideo/{{Friendship is Witchcraft}}'' episode, Sweetie Belle claims she is uninstalling Rarity from hers and reinstalling Applejack. [[DisproportionateRetribution All for not attending a sisterly obstacle course-like event with her.]]

* One of the more prominent examples would be the concepts of sparks in the Franchise/{{Transformers}}' universe. Sparks are basically a combination of the bot's heart and soul, as they are dead without one, and when it is "extinguished", the spark goes to become one with the Matrix. Originally introduced in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', this is possibly the most enduring part of the show's mythology, since it has appeared in every subsequent incarnation of Transformers, including the [[Film/{{Transformers}} live-action movies]].

* In the ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'' episode "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back," Bender has his personality downloaded onto a floppy disk, which renders him "quiet, and helpful". However, in the season six episode "Lethal Inspection," Bender discovers that he can't simply download to a different body in case his is destroyed, because he was built without a back-up unit. So if his body is destroyed, [[KilledOffForReal so is he]]. Though, being a robot, he's practically invincible, so he doesn't have ''too'' much to worry about.

* Several scripted but unproduced episodes of ''WesternAnimation/{{Invader Zim}}'' were to have expanded on the functions of the PAK, the backpack device all Irkens wear. One of them, "Ten Minutes to Doom", contained this line:

Added DiffLines:

* Juiz, [[spoiler:all of them]], from Anime/EdenOfTheEast. In this case, she resides entirely within a single semi-portable computer, by which we mean it has to be loaded onto a tractor-trailer unit.

* In Greg Egan's short story ''Learning To Be Me'', everyone has a tiny neural network computer implanted into their brain. As the people grow, the computer constantly corrects itself to mimic their brain's responses. At a certain age, many people choose to remove their brains, making the tiny computer this trope.

* [[SCPFoundation SCP Foundation's]] Dr. Bright has [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-963 SCP963-1]], an amulet that has bonded to him, which serves as his HeartDrive. Unlike most examples, he remains fine even when [=SCP963-1=] is removed. When [=SCP963-1=] is placed around somebody else's neck, he [[GrandTheftMe permanently overrides their personality and memory.]] If there's still an old Dr. Bright alive when a new Dr. Bright is made, the old Dr. Bright immediately dies.

* The Gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin are exactly what their name indicates]]: the only fundamental part of them is the [[GemHeart jewel]]. If their body is heavily damaged, their souls retreat into their Gems for a while until they can form a new one; if the Gem is damaged [[spoiler:or corrupted]], however, the results are far more severe. A destroyed Gem equals death. Incidentally this is also why Rose Quartz suffered DeathByChildbirth. The only way she could give birth to Steven was by giving her jewel to him. Her existence ended when his began. Aside from her powers and her love, it does not seem like anything else of Rose remains in Steven. However, most other gems don't understand this, and assume Steven and Rose to be the same person--even her closest friends took a while to figure out Steven wasn't just some new form she took.
