* One of the ultimate goals of comic book {{supervillain}} SelfDemonstrating/DrDoom, along with the destruction of nemesis Reed Richards and the conquest of Earth, was the resurrection of his beloved mother (or at least, saving her from hell). Ultimately, he was able to do so, but only by forcing his mother to renounce her love for him. No wonder he's always so pissed.

** The main plot of the first game, ''Koudelka'', revolved around the game's villain trying to resurrect a loved one. It does not turn out well.

* 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.]]

* 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...]]
