* ''The Elder Scrolls'':
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', Forsworn Briarhearts are warriors who have had their hearts replaced with magical briar seeds. They are the mightiest warriors in the Forsworn's ranks, but the ritual deprives them of free will and makes them of little use as anything other than berserkers or battlemages. [[spoiler:[[DevelopersForesight Also, if you can pickpocket the Briar Heart from them]], [[WeaksauceWeakness it will kill them instantly]].]]
** In the franchise's backstory; Pelinel Whitestrake was said to have a hole in his chest that showed, instead of a heart, he had a red diamond. Whether he was always like this and if it contributed to his berserker rages, though, is unknown. It did imply a connection between him and Lorkhan, the heartless god, but he killed those who suggested it. And probably prompts a fair bit of WMG and EpilepticTrees regarding that diamond and the core gem of the Amulet of Kings.

''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** From the series' backstory comes Pelinal Whitestrake, the legendary 1st Era hero of mankind/[[FantasticRacism racist]] [[TheBerserker berserker]]. Believed to have been a [[EternalHero Shezarrine]], [[GodInHumanForm physical incarnations]] of the spirit of the [[GodIsDead "dead" creator god]] Lorkhan (known to the Imperials as "[[IHaveManyNames Shezarr]]"), Pelinal came to [[FounderOfTheKingdom St. Alessia]] to serve as her [[PhysicalGod divine champion]] in the war against the [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleids]]. He had a hole in his chest and a red diamond instead of a heart, symbolizing his connection with the "heartless" Lorkhan. He [[BerserkButton killed those]] who spoke of such things to him, though.

* During the ''Old World Blues'' DLC for ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', the player has his/her heart (and brain, and spine) removed and replaced by a synthetic one. Later on, you have the choice of keeping your powerful synthetic organs or putting your old ones back in (upgraded with a bit of tech, of course). Getting your original organs back actually gives you better stat bonuses (double the value of the bonuses the artificial ones give), but the artificial ones also grant you special bonuses like total immunity to poison and the inability to have your head and torso crippled.
