* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', [[spoiler:it turns out that Guardian Forces actually carve out a space in their hosts' heads for themselves, destroying memories in the process. The heroes continue to use Guardian Forces after learning this and [[GameplayAndStorylineSegregation no further memory loss occurs]].]] Additionally, the final Guardian Force, Eden, has an ability called Devour, which enables Eden's host to eat his or her opponent in order to gain various benefits from HP to stat increases - although depending on the opponent, the effect could be negative instead. Either way, the game cheerfully acknowledges the rather {{Squick}}y implications of this: the animation for the ability involves cutting to a [[RelaxOVision screenshot of a serene landscape,]] over which is played the very loud, messy slurping and smacking noises of the target being messily eaten. [[EvilLaugh Bwahahaha.]]

** One of the older and more notorious WorldOfWarcraft examples was the "Chained Essence of Eranikus" item which created a poison cloud around the player, the downside? The item is powered by the tortured soul of a dragon who [[AndIMustScream begs for mercy]] (and occasionally threatens) everytime the object is used.

* In the ''{{Mithgar}}'' books, a mage literally has to give of their own soul to work their magic, causing them to age dramatically (though they can then go into stasis for extended periods to recover lost youth). [[EvilSorcerer Black Mages]], on the other hand, find this process cumbersome and inconvenient, so they power their magic with ''other people's'' souls, generally wrenched from them through acts of tremendous [[ColdBloodedTorture mental and physical cruelty]]. As this process is implied to become somewhat addictive, there's a reason most Black Mages end up insane.

Added DiffLines:

*** Though there is a work around. If you have a Dead Thrall spell - which, unlike the lower level Zombie spell, doesn't reduce the target to dust when they're killed - you can kill a single companion, then resurrect them, then kill them again. Rinse and repeat. Because of the way the game is coded, undead Thralls count as Followers, and thus count towards murders with the Ebony Blade.

* This quote, taken from ''LlamasWithHats'': "I should probably mention I filled our luggage with orphan meat." "Wh...what?" "Well, I'm building a meat dragon, and not just ANY meat will do!"

* In ''LostKingdoms 2'', it is strongly implied that the artificial Runestones [[spoiler: are made from people's souls.]] You only find this out if you go back and check [[spoiler:Sol's body in the Royal Tower, Lower]] [[MultipleEndings without meeting the requirements for the Good ending.]]

** The [[MegaCorp Orochi Group]] excels at this, from the research facility that only uses child test subjects to the constantly-regenerating being forced to suffer through being butchered for meat. However, the crown goes to Project Odyssey, in which one of Gaia's Chosen ends up being used as an organ donor, forced to spend the rest of eternity being operated without anesthetic, dying as a result of overharvesting, and then respawning so that more organs can be removed,

* In ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'', [[spoiler: the titular [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot space ninjas]] are actually piloted by the surviving children caught from a botched [[FasterThanLightTravel void jump]] aboard a colony ship called the Zariman 10-0. With the children's exposure to the Void, the [[AbusivePrecursors Orokin]] exploited their ability to manifest it's energy and link with the Warframes like an avatar as a means to fight a war against their previous creations, [[StarfishAliens the Sentients]].]]
