* 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.

* ''VideoGame/PonyIsland'': Try not to have an existential crisis as you read this. [[spoiler: But apparently, Theodore's soul is both simultaneously inside ''and outside'' the arcade cabinet machine. He's trapped in not just Limbo, an empty arcade, but also in the [[TailorMadePrison Devil's game machine]]. He can't move, until he either surrenders his soul, or tears down the prison itself. Not just him, but thousands of other damned souls too. Each in their own empty arcades, [[AndIMustScream stuck in their own profiles]].]]

* ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendofZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'' features the ability to extract the last regrets and thoughts of a dying soul into a mask... which you can promptly don and gain whatever wicked cool abilities the deceased may have possessed.
** It is also implied that the masks allow the soul to possess the wearer - and according to certain EpilepticTrees, even preserve the soul for resurrection at the end of the game.

* Souls and the effects of lacking them play a huge role in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''. Monsters and humans have souls, but a human soul is far stronger than a monster soul in power and the ability to linger after death whereas monster souls fade away nearly instantly after death and boss monster souls linger after death just for a brief moment. Monster have the ability to absorb human souls to gain more power and gaining seven or more human souls can make a monster almost godlike, which is what humans feared and was their motivation to go to war against the monsters according to the backstory. Part of the reason why human souls can exist after death is due to humans having "determination" which is an actual bodily substance that allows humans to keep going against all odds. Monsters can't make determination naturally (or at least not a lot) since their bodies ''melt'' if they have too much of the stuff. Now what happens if a being has no soul? [[spoiler: Flowey is the result of someone who was once dead and brought back to life with an injection of determination. However, because Flowey lost his soul in his previous life, coming back to life without a soul rendered him unable to feel empathy no matter how hard he tried to feel and this would eventually drive him mad.]]

* In ''KarakuridoujiUltimo'', Dr. Dunstan said that he [[FridgeHorror successfully broke down]] human souls and put them in robots known as the karakuri doji. The only way a doji truly dies is if you crush their soul sphere.

** ''His Dark Materials'' also holds that the mind and the soul ''are'' separate, though intrinsically connected, and that a person's mind (ghost) retains its composition upon death, while a soul (Dæmon) dissolves upon death. The mind feels incomplete however. On the bright side, a dead-but-still-intact ghost is [[LikeABadAssOutOfHell the perfect fighter]] against the aforementioned soul-eating Specters.

* [[Creator/IDWPublishing IDW's]] ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye goes into new details about just how Cybertronians function and where they come from. A Transformer's soul is their "Spark", a physical object within their chest (and separate from their brain), and destroying it means death (an afterlife called the Afterspark is posited but unproven). New Cybertronians are "born" when Vector Sigma, a supercomputer at the core of their planet, releases a pulse that ignites Sparks on the surface. Sparks can also be manufactured artificially from the Matrix, a MacGuffin with a connection to Vector Sigma. These Sparks are implanted in manufactured bodies, known as being "Constructed Cold", and there is some FantasticRacism against them from bots who were "Forged" (born naturally, and implied to grow their own bodies). Killing a Transformer usually involves destroying either their Spark or their Brain Module, but because the personality comes from the Spark, that's the most sure way to guarantee death.
** Also worth noting is that for whatever reason Vector Sigma hasn't released a new pulse in millions of years. With the recent destruction of the Matrix, and Cybertron coming off a four million year war that killed billions, it would seem that it is now impossible to make new Cybertronians, and the race is doomed to a slow extinction despite being functionally immortal.
