* In the ''MegaManZero'' series, Cyber Elves are sentient beings of energy that will sacrifice themselves to the benefit of the player. The nurse types specifically are converted into usable energy. The Dark Elf is the only one that is used as a continuous power source without dying.
* In ''Metroid'', infant Metroids are used like this by Space Pirates in ''Metroid Prime 2: Echoes'', and in ''Super Metroid'' it is implied in the intro that this is what is meant by them being used to benefit mankind.

Most {{Magitech}} and machines require some kind of PowerSource. Common sources are coal, steam, electricity, or even {{Phlebotinum}}. But sometimes, that source is something which is biological and alive, sometimes even sentient. It's a Living Battery, which the machine or device takes the LifeEnergy from almost parasitically.

* ''BlackBird'' has this, with a twist. The living battery (the heroine) isn't harmed by having her energy used. She just gives it off like a fire gives off heat. Though the ''other'' things that she can provide aren't nearly as non-invasive to harvest...
