* [[SuperpowerfulGenetic Genetically-transferred powers]] in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' tend to be tied to specific organs that can be [[BadassTransplant transplanted into others]]. Eyes, arms, hearts, entire bodies, you name a body part, ninja are stealing it from each other. There's even a whole clan that got powerups from stealing each other's eyes. Though many of them (though not all) are courteous enough to kill the person before stealing their body parts.

* The Wolkenritter hunting Linker Cores in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' is the magical equivalent, though they're being used to fuel an ArtifactOfDoom and they naturally grow back over time.

* One of the later ''Literature/AlexRider'' books uses this as a justification for the villain [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim keeping Alex alive]] [[OnceAnEpisode yet again]]. He has Alex taken to a hidden facility where his various organs will be removed one-at-a-time (finishing with the heart) and sold to wealthy customers, allowing him to recover what Alex has cost him. Alex doesn't stick around.

* A ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' sketch involved a woman falling victim to this, and waking up just as the thief was leaving. She just laughs and points to the mirror, where she wrote "Welcome to the AIDS club!". They both have a chuckle over it.
-->"Good luck selling ''that'' organ!"

* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}},'' a group of Andalites come to Earth to assassinate [[BigBad Visser Three]] ([[spoiler:or so they claim]]). The actual sniper is a BoxedCrook named Aloth arrested for trying to sell the organs of warriors who fell in battle.

* RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/TheNumberOfTheBeast'' has Lazarus Long mention how he'd never engage in killing people to strip them of their organs, ''but'', he knows of several planets where you could point someone out, and a thug would quote you a price and ask which parts you want and "when and where did you want them delivered?" (He's giving the explanation to point out that there are some places where you can buy anything.)

* A weird example from the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' expansion ''Point Lookout'': after (unknowingly and involuntarily) undergoing [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trepanning trepanning,]] your character wakes up with a chunk of brain missing. This wasn't sold on a black market or anything, but [[CollectorOfTheStrange put in a jar and kept as some sort of souvenir by your surgeon]]. You can actually recover your bottled Lump of Brain, though looking at the item fills you with "a terrible sense of loss."
* The ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' expansion ''Old World Blues'' [[UpToEleven goes even farther]], with the Think Tank removing your entire brain, along with your spinal column and heart and replacing them with cybernetic components. It's up to the player whether to put your original organs back or keep the robotics (both options offer their own stat buffs).

* ''VideoGame/{{Killer7}}'' had organ theft as part of its [[MindScrew so called plot]]. Made even creepier by the fact that the organs are taken from immigrant children and children abducted from a creepy theme park. Plus the things Curtis Blackburn [[{{Squick}} did with the bodies]] of the girls he killed.
