* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist's'' Al can't feel, taste or smell ''anything'' anymore after having his soul sealed into a suit of armor. Compared to that, Ed thinks losing an arm and a leg was a slap on the wrist.

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist's'' Al Alphonse Elric can't feel, taste or smell ''anything'' anymore after having his soul sealed into a suit of armor. Compared to that, Ed thinks losing an arm and a leg was a slap on the wrist. Al tries to remain optimistic by keeping a notepad of things he will do when he gets his body back (like trying Winry's pie).

* Full Conversion 'Borgs in ''{{Rifts}}'' lose about 70-80% of their sense of touch when they transfer into their mechanical bodies. Because they're given massive amounts of psychological screening before they undergo the surgery, most still consider it a decent trade-off for the sheer power, but they still feel down about it from time to time. Apparently, though, you eventually completely forget you don't have human eyes or ears.

** Latula, her ancestor who instead lost her smell, isn't in focus enough for this to be entirely clear but seems to play it straight and pretend that she's fine with it while actually clearly disliking that she lost it.

** Latula, her ancestor who instead lost her smell, isn't in focus enough for this to be entirely clear but seems to play it straight and pretend that she's fine with it while actually clearly disliking that she lost it. This is at least partially because Troll society believes that any disability, no matter how minor, is cause for culling - but for Beforan Trolls, this means keeping them at home and coddling them so they don't feel bad about themselves.

* While both Shizune's (a deaf from birth girl) and Lilly's (a blind from birth girl) routes of KatawaShoujo touch upon this trope, it's mostly the latter one that dedicates whole dialogues (and two of the game's most memorable scenes, by most accounts) to deconstructing, discussing, and reconstructing it. Having never experienced the sensation of sight in her life, Lilly obviously doesn't feel as if she's "lost" anything, especially given the fact that her other senses are sharper to compensate (when the protagonist asks her if she's not sad about not being able to say, she jokingly asks him if he's sad about not being able to hear what people in the next room are saying). While occasionally frustrated with not being able to see (especially when something completely out of the ordinary happens, leaving her frozen and feeling powerless as for how to respond), her attitude towards her missing sense most often seems to be one of intrigue: she is fascinated with the concept of color in an almost spiritual fashion (which is fitting, since she's no more capable of imagining color than a regular person would be of imagining divinity), and wonders about how other people dream (amusingly asking the protagonist "Do you see in your dreams?", a question whose opposite is stereotypically directed at the blind). Sight and sensation-play even feature heavily into her romantic scenes.

** In ''VideoGames/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', Jedi Knight companion [[TokenEvilTeammate Lord Scourge]] describes this as part of the [[WhoWantsToLiveForever price for his immortality]] -- he can no longer taste or smell, has only rudimentary senses of sight and touch, and is generally disconnected from the feeling of "living". He suggests that [[BigBad the Emperor]], having done it longer, probably has it ''worse''.
