* A cast of TSR employees at [=GenCon=] 1999 performed a ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}''-themed dialogue skit, "One Piece At A Time", that employed this trope. A female MadScientist attempted to resurrect her dead fiancee by keeping his [[BrainInAJar disembodied head alive]], murdering people, and surgically reassembling him from their salvaged body parts. Being a ''Ravenloft'' story, [[FromBadToWorse It Got Worse]].

* An interesting twist occurs in the EdgarAllanPoe story ''Ligeia,'' in which a morose nobleman is pining over the loss of his first wife. [[spoiler:The twist is that he does nothing, while the spirit of his first wife poisons and takes over the body of his still-living ''second'' wife.]]

* ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' absolutely ''loves'' this trope. One scenario, ''Dead Man Stomp'', involves a musician who finds out his trumpet, given to him by [[DealWithTheDevil Nyarlathotep]] [[DevilInDisguise masquerading as a famous Jazz musician]], can raise the dead. Said man has recently lost his girlfriend. Guess what he tries to do the second [[InsanityMakesYouEvil he goes mad...]]
