** And in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', several of the characters who were killed in [[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 the last game'' are brought back as "revenants": evil, undead servants of necromancer Quan Chi and fallen Elder God [[BigBad Shinnok]]. Granted, some are eventually [[BackFromTheDead restored to life]], but most remain bound to their masters.

* In the first ''{{Drakengard}}'', Furiae is brought back with a "Seed of Resurrection", only as a [[OneWingedAngel horrible monster]] which brings about the end of the world by being cloned a million times over. * Liu Kang from ''MortalKombat'' Deception, who was turned into a zombie by the corrupted god, Raiden after being murdered in ''Deadly Alliance'' by Shang Tsung. * In ''FinalFantasyTactics'', Zalbaag becomes a MonsterFromBeyondTheVeil CameBackWrong after being killed by Dycedarg/Adrammelech. He is revived by the Lucavi in the next series of battles, and retains full consciousness, but he is turned into a vampiric zombie without any control over his actions, constantly suffering. He begs Ramza to kill him, knowing there's no hope for him and not wanting to hurt his brother. * This is a recurring theme in the ''ShadowHearts'' series, starting with predecessor ''{{Koudelka}}''. In each game, someone attempts to bring someone BackFromTheDead using the instructions in the [[TomeOfEldritchLore Emigre Manuscript]], but they ''always'' come back as hideous abominations. This is because the "Malice" used to create the body overpowers the "Will" needed to reconstitute the soul. [[spoiler:The third game features the first ''successful'' resurrection, though it came at the cost of the subject's sister and memories]].

* In ''PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', [[spoiler:this is the eventual fate of all {{Magical Girl}}s, after essentially becoming {{Lich}}es and falling into TheCorruption (often provoked by TheReveal of what the process did to them). The trade name for these monsters, which Magical Girls are charged with fighting in this series, is "Witches".]]

** This is also apparently how vampirism works in this comic. Durkon Thundershield was killed by a vampire and then raised as a vampire himself, but it isn't Durkon who's in charge anymore, it's a spirit servitor of the goddess Hel that inhabits his body. Durkon still exists, but is powerless to do anything about the situation other than exchange mental witty banter with the High Priest of Hel.

* Happens in [[TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]. Though the first time it's Subverted, as a JackTheRipper style serial killer is murdering young woman to create a mishmash body as a vessel to resurrect his dead wife, which you prevent. The second time, in the Dragonborn expansion, a scientist was experimenting with a way to revive and restore corpses to exactly as they were before they died. Falx Carius [[TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind (Yes THAT Falx Carius)]] was restored, but lost his mind in the process, becoming extremely violent and delusional/irrational, commanding an army of [=AshSpawn=] to lay siege on [=RavenRock=].

* In ''ComicBook/DeathVigil'',Maria is a {{Necromantic}} who wants to revive her daughter Alicia by using the Reaper's scythe. Unfortunately, Alicia's 'ghost' is actually a hallucination induced by the Enemy, who is manipulating her to bring an EldritchAbomination from beyond the Veil.

* This is apparently how the [[BlackestNight Black Lanterns]] work. The ring reanimates a dead person's body and gives it a personality close to the one they had in life -- except the Black Lantern version is also a bloodthirsty monster that wants to eat people and rip out hearts for power. The soul apparently has nothing to do with it; when a ring took control of Boston Brand aka Deadman's (a superhero ghost) corpse, Deadman tried to take back control of his body, but the ring drove him out. This means that a Black Lantern is simply a corpse controlled by the ring (making them technically a SoullessShell as well) that mimics just enough of their old personality to make them completely unnerving to those who knew them in life. Add to that any powers and abilities the person had in life, the standard power ring protective aura and energy constructs, an incredibly powerful HealingFactor, and immunity to magic makes for one ''terrifying'' example of this trope. * Maria is a {{Necromantic}} who wants to revive her daughter Alicia by using the Reaper's scythe.

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn'', [[spoiler: Full Frontal is a cyber-newtype made from copy-pasting Char's resonant memories from the Sazabi onto someone physically similar. The result is a somewhat Buddhist take on this: Char's second coming is ''utterly'' consumed by his desire to perpetuate the cycle of conflict which claimed his previous incarnation (Not to mention [[PhlebtoniumGirl Lalah Sune]]). ]]
