* In ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'', everyone has a single Breath, which is the equivalent of the soul, but can be transferred willingly to others and used to animate objects. Those who lose their Breath can function normally, but they and their clothes appear drained of color, their immune systems suddenly lose much of their efficacy, and they become more prone to depression and mood swings.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheCosmere'''s universe comprises Physical, Cognitive, and Spiritual realms; the latter contains the "spiritweb" of every living thing, which represents their identity, passes into the afterlife upon their death, and houses the "spiritual DNA" that accesses the setting's various FunctionalMagic systems.

* In JimButcher's ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', a soul, along with the body and spirit, is a component of a person, depending on the species. Humans have all three, Animals have body and possibly a spirit, Demons and Fae have body and spirit, Angels are all soul, and Ghosts and Spirits are, well, all spirit; and there are many other beings who have different configurations. The relationship between the soul and the spirit is complex and never fully explained, but on death of the body, most think that the soul would go on to an afterlife, and what happens to the spirit isn't entirely clear, but it appears to either disperse or carry on as a ghost if there's "unfinished business." A ghost is widely accepted to be a discreet and separate entity from the person that they were, even though they have the name, memories, and personality of the person that they were/came from.\\

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/TinkerQuarry'', each [[LivingToys toy]] has their own specialized soul, called an Essence. It takes the form of a floating object that is visible in the toy's chest in battle. WordOfGod states that each toy actually ''is'' their Essence, with their bodies being simply vessels. If needed, a toy's Essence can be placed in the body of another toy, and they can continue on as if nothing happened.

* Discussed in ''Webcomic/WeAreTheWyrecats''. The characters try to determine what the digital size of the human soul is and whether it can be [[BrainUploading saved on a different hardware]].

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Daedric]] soul, or "Essence", is referred to as ''The Animus''. Unlike a mortal soul, which can ''theoretically'' be permanently destroyed, a Daedric ''Animus'' is both everlasting and protean. As a result, "killing" a Daedra's mortal shell is possible, but it's soul will just take a metaphysical swim through the cosmic sewers and be spat back out again... Eventually. This can even [{DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu happen]] to the [[PowersThatBe Daedric Princes]] when they take [[PhysicalGod physical forms]] on the mortal plane.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfAncientDarkness: Each person has three souls, with different functions - and losing each soul has different effects. The world-soul connects the person to the rest of the world, [[spoiler: losing it causes you to become a [[AndIMustScream Lost]] [[FateWorseThanDeath one]]; the clan-soul is responsible for morality (explained as a sense of belonging to temper the strength of the world-soul) and losing it causes you to become a [[FaceMonsterTurn demon]]; if you lose the name-soul you become a ghost, losing your memories - the name-soul is also your reflection, but we don't see if [[MissingReflection the reflection is lost too]]. [[spoiler: Soul-sickness happens when one of the souls is corrupted - even though you stay you, the effects are the same.]]

* Surprisingly enough. The Franchise/{{Kirby}} series has its interpretation of souls usually as the Final or Bonus bosses of there games. The antagonists usually unleashing all there power in order at one final attempt. Usually left up for interpretation in most of the games, but given a chilling light in Planet Robobot, having the main antagonists soul absorbed and erased from existence.

** The Eldar are stated to have particularly strong souls that retain consciousness after death, which is particularly horrifying as upon death their souls are torn apart and devoured by an Eldritch Abomination of their own creation.
