** Rare heroic example: happens to Shepard at the beginning of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. Notably, the Illusive Man didn't bother installing any real {{Restraining Bolt}}s, trusting instead in Shepard's gratitude and their mutual goals to ensure that she would work for him post-resurrection. Whether he's right depends on the player's choices, although [[spoiler: he's ultimately proven wrong in the third game]]. Shepard can also be made to pay lip service to the idea that Cerberus is working for ''her'' instead of the other way around.
** If Shepard fails to rescue her in time in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', this will happen to [[spoiler: Jack]]. It also potentially happens to [[spoiler: Legion]], but only if you [[spoiler: sent their platform to Cerberus]] without ever getting to know them in the first place. [[spoiler:Morinth]] will also show up as a Banshee if [[spoiler:she]] was alive at the end of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''.

* In ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'' and ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger'', Leanbow/Isamu was TheHero of the GreatOffscreenWar twenty years prior, who stayed behind to make sure that [[SealedEvilInACan the seal on the evil can worked]]. This naturally resulted in him being trapped in there with the evil badly wounded from fighting off an army alone, which then took his unconscious body and reforged him into Koragg/Wolzard, their new BlackKnight [[TheDragon dragon]]. Yes, becoming a BlackKnight qualifies as being reforged, its a transformation rather than a suit of armor, and he stayed in that form the full twenty years until the spell was broken.

* [=JackMoon=] from ''MadanSenkiRyukendo'' is a NobleDemon who is set up as TheRival to Kenji Narukami, the eponymous Ryukendo. He dies in what he sees a honorable death against Kenji...only to be rebuilt into the mindless cyborg Mekanimoon by the EvilGenius Baron Bloody. [[spoiler: He does return to his old self after the BigBad is destroyed and dies for real in a PostClimaxConfrontation against his rival Kenji.]]

** They were this exactly in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} II'': slain Azerothian Paladins reanimated into Undead {{Squishy Wizard}}s for the then-evil Horde. ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'''s Liches are those same Death Knights retransformed into frost magic users (though they kept the Death and Decay spell), and the new generation of Death Knights are human nobles reanimated as melee heroes with [[LightningBruiser a much better survival rate]].

* In ''Anime/TekkamanBlade'', every Tekkaman is an example. The Radam captured a bunch of explorers and subjected them to a harrowing procedure that infused them with awesome superpowers and a parasite controlling their thoughts. [[spoiler:Takaya aka D-Boy's father used the last of his strength to free Takaya and interrupted the process. As a result, Takaya had the superpowers of a Tekkaman but lacked the mind controlling parasite.]]

* Temporarily happened to Captain Picard in the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' Episode The "The Best of Both Worlds", as he is captured and assimilated by [[HiveMind the Borg]] to serve as their mouthpiece Locutus.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/EvilGenius'', this is how you make Freaks: dipping a body bag into your Bio-Tanks induces a terrifying resurrection, and the result is peak DumbMuscle -- a Freak's ''maximum'' Attention is still too low to avoid your own traps. [[spoiler:This is also how you permanently dispose of Dirk "Totally Not {{Franchise/Rambo}}" Masters. Turns out he's hopped up on tons of illegal steroids, and the chemicals in your Bio-Tanks cause a delightful DangerousPhlebotinumInteraction.]]

* The Taken in ''Literature/BlackCompany'' are powerful wizards, defeated in battle and remade into powerful servants. The transformation seems to involve death and the victim remains human in shape only at best.

Added DiffLines:

* In the New 52, this was, ultimately, how Harley Quinn became a villain; ComicBook/TheJoker brought her to the factory where his own transformation had occurred, and forcibly dunked her into the same vat of chemicals, with similar results. (Probably the biggest reason why Harley is far more insane in this version than previous ones, often just as much as he is.)
