** The bugbear deity Hruggek sends omens to his followers via this trope, and is known to keep a large collection of severed heads that plead endlessly for mercy. Rumor has it that each head can also mentally influence members of its original race via ''suggestion'', or utter ''power word'' spells, if Hruggek commands it.

* Morte the sentient Mimir from ''PlanescapeTorment'' (see Tabletop Games), who looks even more skull-like than other Mimir. [[spoiler:Mainly, this is because Morte ultimately turns out ''not'' to be a Mimir, but a piece of the Pillar of Skulls from the first layer of Hell]]. Morte doesn't just talk, he snarks and jibes and is pretty much 'alive' in every sense of the world but the purely physical one.

He gives you a [[http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Monument_chunk chunk of rock]] as a parting gift and tells you to get lost. If your Steal skill is less than 95% and you try to snag a few more he dishes out 14,000 hit points of damage and instantly vaporizes you.
