* In ''Steel Ball Run'', the seventh part of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'', the plot heavily centers around collecting the parts of a corpse that, when merged with someone, grants them a Stand, and collecting the whole corpse will grant an ultimate power to the weilder. It's never especified who the corpse belongs to; though they are described as belonging to "a saint", it's heavily implied that they actually belong to [[spoiler: ''Jesus Christ'']].

* In ''Webcomic/{{Godslave}}'', Anpu has had his soul splintered into nine pieces - ''ba'' - which his fellow gods hid separately. In fact, what Edith finds is just one of the ''ba'', and it tasks her with finding the rest to reassemble him.

* In the Thousand Year Blood War story arc for ''Manga/{{Bleach}},'' we have Yhwach, who is the Big Bad, and the original Quincy. The reason all other Quincies exist is because he shared pieces of his soul with them. These soul fragments become their Quincy powers. And this soul fragment is technically now a part of the Quincy, so any offspring inherit the Quincy power as well. Yhwach is associated by many Quincies with the Christian God, partly because of this. [[spoiler:However, when a Quincy dies, they lose that piece of soul, which goes back to Yhwach. Also, if Yhwach feels the need to, he can forcibly remove his soul fragment, with the side effect of killing the Quincy. He has caused at least two massacres by removing Quincy powers en masse.]]

* Ghosts in ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'' are this in a more literal sense than most uses of this trope; during the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Collapse]] the Traveler used the last bit of its fading strength to expel thousands upon thousands of Ghosts to carry pieces of its Light and intelligence so that they could create the [[TheChosenOne Guardians]] that would protect the Last City. Each Ghost is an entity unto itself, but they all are aligned with the Traveler and aid humanity in to struggle against [[EldritchAbomination The]] [[TheCorruption Darkness.]]

Facing the Great Old One Yog-Sothoth, he realizes that he and it are the same being.

* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', God is the CollectiveUnconscious of all humans from the past, present, and future. In season two, Emperor Charles reveals that his ultimate goal is to [[spoiler:[[KillTheGod kill God]], essentially merging all of humanity's minds and souls into one eternal being, which would allow him to never have to deal with losing a loved one. However, Lelouch objects to his haughty ideals, believing that if such a thing were to occur, humanity would lose its individuality and sense of self, instead using his Geass to make God resist Charles' attempt to slay it, and it in turn destroys Charles and Marianne for their hubris.]]
