* In ''Comicbook/{{X-Factor}}'', Layla Miller's ''true'' power is revealed as the ability to resurrect dead people, albeit without souls. Trevor Fitzroy's role as a longstanding Bishop villain is thus explaining as Layla [[CameBackWrong restoring the once good Trevor, but without a soul]].

* In Literature/TheTygrineCat, a cat's spirit/consciousness is called the second self and can exit the body to traverse [[SpiritWorld Fiåney]]. It is possible for the second self to get lost and for the body to eventually die, trapping the second self in Fiåney permanently.
* In ''[[{{Literature/MGP}} Magical Girl Policy]]'', the Spirit Guard are revealed to be reincarnations of ancient warriors from another civilization, and their souls carry "investiture" from their past lives.

* Roleplay/ShadowhunterPeril focuses on souls quite a bit. There exists a creature called an Ushubaen, which boils down to a human imbibed with demonic energy. Normally this would kill the human, but if the human is also imbibed with enough souls to counteract the corrosive demonic energy, then they become a perfect mix of the two (in contrast to faeries, which are half angel half demon, but aren't perfect mixtures). Unfortunately, because they have multiple souls in them, and demonic energy taints the mind as well as bestowing powers, all Ushubaen are insane, genocidal monsters who want to destroy everything they can. They can even kill [[BigGood angels]].

** Also, only Humans have Souls for sure; Wizards can Soulgaze other Humans, but not any other creatures (Fae, Angels, etc.), implying they either do not have a Soul, or it is so different than a Human's Soul that the 'Gaze doesn't work.
*** White Court Vampires can also be Soulgazed, being born from a Human and a Vampire.

* Handled interestingly in Creator/OscarWilde's ''TheFishermanAndHisSoul'', where the titular Fisherman gives up his soul in order to be with the mermaid he loves. His soul is shown as being intellectually completely different from himself. In fact, his life only changes for the worse once his soul returns.
** Note that the spell the Fisherman performs to separate himself from his soul involves cutting his shadow free from his body, and that the soul, left on its own, is apparently [[TheHeartless Heartless]].
** Creator/OscarWilde's other work, ''Literature/ThePictureOfDorianGray'' is a lot darker. The protagonist makes a DealWithTheDevil in order to have his portrait age instead of him. He then proceeds to live a life of debauchery and decadence which can be seen on his portrait, but he himself remains unharmed for the most part.

However does the mind work? Is it contained entirely in the brain, or is there something more there? Whichever it is, the "something more" is generally referred to as a soul. However, as something that is by definition intangible, there hasn't been much agreement on what it is that a soul actually ''does''. Is it essential for life, or can a person live on without it? What exactly does it give you, life, or wisdom, or will, or morality? Does it have weight? What happens if it's [[YourSoulIsMine stolen]] or [[DealWithTheDevil sold]]? Is it an {{Energy Being|s}}? [[IsItSomethingYouEat Does it taste like strawberries or chocolate]]?

* In ''The Case of the Toxic Spell Dump'' children with apsychia are born without a soul and apparently simply stop existing after death--no afterlife, no nothing. It is seen as horrendously tragic. (An experimental medical treatment is being investigated, in which tiny pieces of many souls are fused into, essentially, a synthetic soul which can then be implanted in the apsychic child. Whether this will actually work is still unclear.)

Added DiffLines:

* They aren't specifically identified as souls, but people in ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' have some sort of spiritual presence that endures after death and needs to be led into the Aether by a {{Psychopomp}}. [[spoiler:Mort]] is a person who decided to stay around for a while before passing on. This might also be the part that temporarily exits the body through AstralProjection.

* In the world of ''Cold Souls'', extracting your soul is as common as, say, [[EternalSunshineOfTheSpotlessMind wiping away bad memories]]. CreativeSterility happens to Paul Giamatti (as himself) when his "chickpea-sized" soul is removed to prevent anxiety, and he later gets involved in ''Russian soul-smuggling''.

* If you are a host for [[SevenDeadlySins The Sins]] in ''Webcomic/{{Sins}}'' then your soul is destroyed, no matter what you do or have done. Just ''picking up'' their SoulJar is enough. This doesn't seem to impact daily life, but WordOfGod states that when you die, it is nought but oblivion for you. Which sucks.

* In the VideoGame/{{Mario}} fangame ''VideoGame/MarioTheMusicBox'': Spirits are said to mostly lack corporeal forms (even though most if not all spirits in the haunted house have a physical body), and angels are even mentioned once. Spirits that do have corporeal forms also tend to be hostile with few exceptions. Entities are mentioned (though they aren't given much explanation) and only two of them exist: [[spoiler:Alice]] and [[spoiler:Anna]]. The circumstances that allowed said characters to become entities are also different in nature.
