* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': This is basically what the Kernelsprites are for. Kernelsprites, when properly prototyped, will be capable of functioning as guides to the player, as well as a CrutchCharacter. Prototyping is done by chucking objects into the Kernel, and by an unspoken rule at least one of these items ''should'' be the remains of a dearly departed. The resulting Sprite takes on characteristics of everything that was thrown in, but failing to include something capable of speech, or at least something sentient, will result in a largely ineffectual guide, as well as a missed opportunity to reunite with a loved one.
* ''Webcomic/CaseyAndAndy'': Happens to Casey's fantasy world counterpart, the court wizard, who was killed while trying to take over the world. The queen decided he was a shoe-in for the job as Evil Vizier (which mandates scheming, backstabbing and attempts at usurpation).
