* Mentioned but not used in ''TheDragonDoctors'', a team of magical doctors. They were discussing possible options for removing an all-consuming sentient cancer from a patient. The problem was that psychic surgery requires bare hands, so getting rid of it with psychic surgery was out of the question.

* Pictured above: In ''GreenLantern'', Star Sapphire corps member Miri did this between the hearts of ''two lovers simultaneously'', linking the heart of Soranik to restart Kyle's, who had just died.
* In ''ComicBook/BatmanHush'', Batman asks Franchise/{{Superman}} to use his X-ray vision to confirm something he suspects--that someone has implanted a microchip at the base of his skull. Batman tells Clark to get rid of it, and he uses his heat vision to fry it without damaging the rest of him. Bruce endures, but we can see that it hurts.

* In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', [[GoodPowersBadPeople Kirei Kotomine]] is known for being particularly skilled at psychic surgery, and he taught at least the basics to Rin. While his techniques [[LethalHarmlessPowers can be used to kill people]], they require too much time and concentration to use in combat. Prior to the events of the story Kotomine uses these abilities to [[spoiler:steal the Command Spells of Lancer's Master and transfer them to himself]], and in the ''Heaven's Feel'' route he also uses them to tend to Sakura. [[BleachedUnderpants In the later "all-ages" versions of the story]], some "energy transfer" scenes that were originally [[DeusSexMachina performed through sex]] are replaced by Rin using psychic surgery to transplant part of Shirou's Magic Circuits to Saber (''Fate''), or part of her own Magic Crest to Shirou (''Unlimited Blade Works'').
