* Featured in ''Magna/ChronoCrusade''. Azmaria's foster father adopted her in the hope that he could use her [[HealingHands Healing]] [[MagicMusic Voice]] to bring his wife's soul back to a body he reconstructed for her after she died in WorldWarI.

* Some of {{Type O Negative}}'s songs have shades of this or ILoveTheDead, but ''All Hallows Eve'' is explicitly about making ADealWithTheDevil to resurrect a loved one.

* ''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...]]

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', at first it appears that the entire plot [[MindScrew apparently]] revolves around Kinzo trying to revive his dead mistress... who also happens to be a 1000 year-old SealedEvilInACan. KillEmAll ensues. [[spoiler:But then it's revealed that Kinzo has been dead for over a year before the story begins, meaning he wasn't involved in any of the murders. And although he did have a dead mistress whom he loved dearly, she was not 1000 years old nor SealedEvilInACan.]]

* In Series 9 of ''Series/DoctorWho'', the entire universe is threatened with destruction in the finale "Hell Bent" -- all because [[spoiler: the Doctor, unable to accept Clara Oswald's death]] has become an AntiVillain example of this and [[spoiler: pulls her out of time at the moment of her death, violating a fixed point in time]].

* Gillian's insistence on trying to resurrect her accidentally poisoned boyfriend in the 1998 film ''Film/PracticalMagic'' is the catalyst for a ''lot'' of later trouble for both her and her sister Sally.
** Of course, this is less about wanting her beloved back and more about trying to avoid a murder charge; Sally accidentally killed him by giving him a dose of belladonna to keep him from trying to kill Gillian.
* The plot of ''Film/{{The Mummy|1999}}'' revolves around the BigBad trying to resurrect his lover, an ancient Egyptian queen. Interestingly, his own resurrection was a lot easier than hers.
** For the simple fact that he didn't die and go to the afterlife like her, he was cursed with undeath. Meaning his soul remained in that dried-up piece of jerky that passed for a body, bound to protect the Book of the Dead. Which those Americans stole. Also, he was eaten alive by scarabs. You try to rest in peace with that going on.

* ''Franchise/ChaosRings'' ''III'' features a particular twisted subversion. SerialKiller Drei 6 wants to bring a woman back to life and has been abducting and harvesting people to create a Gene capable of resurrecting her. During the HopelessBossFight after TheReveal, he confesses that the only reason he's doing this is because [[spoiler:he ''really'' enjoyed killing her. He wants to be able to resurrect her so he can kill her over and over again.]] To twist the knife further, said woman was [[spoiler:party member Al's wife.]]
