* In Creator/DavidEddings' ''[[TheElenium Tamuli]]'', people are terrified of the Shining Ones for their ability to inflict an extremely nasty fate with a touch: their victims' flesh sloughs off their bones as they ''rot alive''. The Shining Ones are [[BlessedWithSuck equally horrified]] by it.

* ''Manga/ElfenLied'' has a particularly gruesome case in the last chapter. [[spoiler:Lucy's psychic powers slowly damage her body on a molecular level and during the finale she uses them to such a great extent that parts of her slowly start to liquefy. In her [[RedemptionEqualsDeath moment of redemption]], she uses all the power she has to save Kouta and his friends which literally causes her skin and flesh to melt.]] First the arms and legs fall off and during the death scene she is only a melting skull and torso and asks to be covered by a jacket so the others (and the readers) don't have to see her like that during her final minutes.

* In ''StreetTrash'', a long-expired alcoholic drink called "Tenafly Viper" causes those who drink it to slowly and grotesquely melt into multicolored sludge. The most famous scene involves a hobo slowly melting into the toilet bowl he's sitting on, his arm breaking off at the wrist when he tries to grab the flush handle to pull himself out. He's quickly reduced to a groaning, half-melted head bobbing around in the bowl.
* The 1993 BodyHorror film ''BodyMelt'' involves an experimental diet pill created to make the perfect human, but it [[GoneHorriblyWrong goes horribly wrong]], causing various horrifying mutations including growing tentacles, exploding body parts, and of course the titular melting bodies.

* In the world of ''Literature/LoneWolf'', many an [[TheUndead Undead]] (above the standard skeleton or zombie) dissolves into foul-smelling goo upon destruction. Notably the case for [[MookLieutenant Vordaks]] or [[HumanShifting Helghasts]] among the servants of the [[EvilOverlord Darklords]], or for the [[DemonicSpiders mutated boss undead]] of [[OurLichesAreDifferent Deathlord Ixiataaga]] from Book 17.

* The {{Tokusatsu}} show ''Uchu kara no messeji: Ginga taisen'' (better known as ''San Ku Kaï'' in Europe or ''Sankuokai'' in Latin America) features one villain of the week with water-based powers who melt into foam when killed, which then takes fire. (It stands out because most other villains [[DefeatEqualsExplosion would rather explode]].)

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', it is implied that Zaktan may have done something like this to a Toa of Plasma, since the only sign of him left was an orange puddle, although it's still ambiguous as to what actually happened in that room. [[spoiler: Tahu also partly melts Nektann using his heat powers in self-defense, but manages to avoid killing him.]]
