* In the ''VideoGame/CubeEscape'' series, ''Rusty Lake: Roots'' reveals that the Vanderboom family has had several men who attempted to create an elixir of immortality. Drinking the elixir has a ''big'' catch, though: it either turns you into a [[BirdPeople Bird Person]] with bizarre memory-related powers or kills you stone dead. Well, stone dead unless you can somehow convince several of your descendants to perform a complex resurrection ritual and even then, you are going to ''suffer''.

* ''Series/SleepyHollow'': [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Malcolm Dreyfuss]], the BigBad of Season 4, spends half the season trying to piece together the [[PublicDomainArtifact Philosopher's Stone]], so that he can use it to become immortal, as a means of LoopholeAbuse to escape his DealWithTheDevil (if he never dies, his soul isn't forfeit to Hell). [[spoiler: He eventually succeeds, and [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity driven mad]], moves up to plans to TakeOverTheWorld.]]

* Seath the Scaleless from ''Videogame/DarkSouls'' went mad trying to discover the secrets of the scales of immortality the rest of his dragon brethen possessed. Granted, it's got to suck being the only mortal born to a race of immortals. Seath arguably just wanted to know why he was ''[[IJustWantToBeNormal different]]''. Tellingly, he continued to research the scales even after he helped Gwyn slaughter the rest of his "immortal" brethren and was given the Primordial Crystal, an ImmortalityInducer, as a reward.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'', the BigBad, Charlie used a DangerousForbiddenTechnique to survive an assassination attempt, which came at the price of making him an enemy of the GeniusLoci that is Erfworld and literally fated to die. Now a CosmicPlaything and terrified of death, he has made living forever his main goal.

** Captain Jack Sparrow. First it was cursed Aztec gold (not worth losing all sensation), then replacing Davy Jones (gave it up to [[spoiler: save Will's life]]), and then the Fountain of Youth....
*** At the end of ''On Stranger Tides'', [[spoiler: Jack decides he'd rather be ''remembered'' forever than exist that long, presumably realizing the high costs of immortality at this point]].
** Blackbeard.

* Xanatos of ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' fame. What good is all the money and power in the world (of which he has quite a bit) if he can't enjoy them forever? He's tried a number of things, but he's never been desperate enough to use them without testing on someone else first.
** He eases up on this after Hudson reminds him of Demona and Macbeth, who actually are immortal and [[WhoWantsToLiveForever fairly miserable]], and follows this up by asking him an ArmorPiercingQuestion concerning the legacy Xanatos will leave behind. Xanatos eventually decides that his family is more important.

* ''WesternAnimation/SuperSunday'': In ''Bigfoot And The Muscle Machines'', the ultimate goal of the antagonist Ravenscroft, a ruthless elderly millionaire, in his quest to find the Fountain of Youth. Indeed, he briefly turns into a younger man after accomplishing his goal and drinking of the Fountain's water, but his immortality is short lived as Yank ultimately rams a monster truck into the Fountain, destroying it. [[NoOntologicalInertia The effects of the Fountain wear off quickly]], and it isn't long before Ravenscroft flees, unaware he's walking into an alligator-infested swamp, presumably meeting his fate.
