* ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfWar'' ends with [[spoiler: Celebrimbor abandoning Talion after the latter realizes the former is no better than Sauron; to survive, Talion grabs the nearest ring of power, which belonged to a ringwraith he MercyKilled minutes ago. By doing this, Talion takes his place, but uses his remaining time to slow Sauron down by opposing his armies around Middle-Earth, until he too succumbs and becomes one of the Nazgúl.]]

** This also occurs to certain enemies that were previously killed by Talion and then raised by [[{{Necromancer}} Zog the Eternal]]. They are turned into revenants with glowing green eyes that are empty shells of their former selves.

** Given how far the stick in [[spoiler:John Snow]]'s ass was when he was resurrected, probably the first one.

** 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.

[[spoiler:And even then, the spirit in question isn't entirely divorced from Durkon; it's a sort of personification of Durkon at his worst, his very worst day when he cursed his homeland all to Hel for exiling him]].

* The 1902 short horror story ''TheMonkeysPaw'' by W. W. Jacobs may the the TropeCodifier. A man wishes on a mummified monkey's paw for £200 to buy a house. He gets the money- after insurance coughs up for his son dying on the job. His wife then wishes for his son to be returned to them, and soon hears a knock at the door. But the father, fearing that his son has returned as he had died, in ragged shreds, burns the paw, before his wife can open the door; by the time she does, there is no one there.

* A Monster From Beyond The Veil shows up in ''Literature/SomethingWickedThisWayComes'' by Ray Bradbury as well. There's an electro-mechanical chair in the story that can bring a dead body back to a horrify mockery of life just long enough for magic to be used to heal the person.

The loved one returns, but they are not as pretty as they used to be. Actually, they are a [[BodyHorror hideous]], horrifying, [[EldritchAbomination insane monstrosity]], and the first thing they are probably going to do with their new life is brutally murder the hero. Which, of course, [[ItsUpToYou leaves it up to the hero's friends]] (and the hero, once they come out of their HeroicBSOD) to stop this unnatural abomination. [[TragicMonster For extra tragedy,]] [[IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight some small part of the original's character may remain]], trapped in a monstrous body and [[AndIMustScream unable to control their actions]], often begging the heroes to [[ICannotSelfTerminate kill them]] before they hurt more people.

** Also, keep in mind that demons are basically eldritch Shoggoth chaos that has been tempered and whipped into shape with rituals and masks, so they look human but are the personification of controlled chaos. Once a demon has 'died', its chaos will awaken and rip out of its corpse, quickly turning the former humanoid shell into a beast of multiple eyes and tentacle mouths.
