* The ''{{Planescape}}'' campaign setting features Mimir: 'Living' encyclopaedias that take the form of floating, animate skulls and recite any knowledge they contain on demand.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Valhalla}}'', the decapitated but still-living head of Mimir is a recurring side character; he's a bit of a grouch and Odin's eternal [[SmartPeoplePlayChess chess partner]]. In most of the stories he tends to win the chess ganes (or is about to), although Odin frequently cheats.

* Zordon from ''Franchise/PowerRangers''. He's actually a humanoid being communicating from a pocket dimension Rita stuck him in, but the only time we ever see him outside his prison is in the NonSerialMovie. When he's released from the prison at the beginning of ''Turbo'', he apparently ''becomes'' the floating head projection for real. Unfortunately, this makes it easier for the bad guys to imprison him during ''In Space''.
