* It provides power even without this trope, but Yuri's basic power generator in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2 Yuri's Revenge'' can have its output boosted by putting infantry in it. The good news is that this doesn't actually seem to do any damage to the people it uses, even if the reactor is destroyed (though that can be a bad thing if you put mind-controlled people inside it -- they get liberated from the mind control once inside. So long as they're inside, they can do nothing but provide power to you, but once released...).

* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', Agatha drinks water from the Dyne and is super-charged as a temporary power source. PlayedWith in a few ways: the power is technically from the Dyne, and not extracted from Agatha herself; and rather than her battery status being detrimental, Agatha would have [[ExplosiveOverclocking suffered]] a PhlebotinumOverload had the device she was powering not drawn off most of the energy.

* In the 1968 french Barjavel's novel ''The Ice People'', the "mange-machine" (= eating-device) is an organic device used by an ancient civilisation to eat. It creates pills and drugs from nothing and the ancient people can not eat things that don't come from this device. They're not used anymore, physically and psychologically, to normal food, and the device is crucial to their life.
