** Much like the ''Vampire the Masquerade'' example above, Dragons from ''TabletopGame/DragonTheEmbers'' have the ability to remove their Heart. In their case, it makes them immortal, as whatever happens to their physical form, they will be able to reform from wherever the Heart is. The downside is that they will die instantly if something happens to it, and more importantly, eating a Dragon's Heart is how a mortal can become a dragon of his own. [[{{Deconstruction}} This causes Dragons to frequently sink into paranoia, knowing that all it would take for their immortal life to end is a mortal finding and eating their Heart.]]

* In ''{{Videogame/Destiny}}'', Oryx pretty much becomes a [[OurLichesAreDifferent lich]] you kill him. The scout rifle "Touch of Malice" is pretty much his SoulJar, and it is implied that its owner will pretty much turn into him.

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Shinji keeps four canopic jars that store the souls of four [[SpaceMarine Rubric Marines]] and [[spoiler:fragments of the spirits of the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' gods.]]
-->Atop a small wooden table he laid out a blue cloth embroidered with the Star of Chaos and the Eye of Tzeentch, and then set down the canopic jars that held the dust of his undying guardians.

** ''Magazine/{{Dungeon}}'' magazine #50 adventure "The Object of Desire". In the BackStory, the evil wizard Nazir Al-Azrad [[TakenForGranite turned his daughter to stone]] and put his heart inside her statue. This makes him invulnerable to damage unless his heart is returned to his body or the statue is destroyed.

* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'': Enjin has a core, resembling a large bead, in his chest. As long as it remains intact, he can regenerate from any damage, even if every part of him but the core is incinerated. The core is very durable, but once it is destroyed, Enjin's body evaporates like smoke.



* ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'': Rasputin sells his soul to the [[BiggerBad underworld]] in return for the demonic powers to enact his curse on the Romanov family. His body can still die, but he just ends up undead in limbo. He can only move into the afterlife if his curse is complete. What's bizarre about this, is he literally sold his soul ''for the MacGuffin''. If his reliquary is destroyed, [[CessationOfExistence he ceases to exist]]. Trying to analyse this, or explain how a person's soul can be both simultaneously transplanted and substituted, for something that's not a soul, causes an ''[[NoOntologicalInertia ontological nightmare]]''.

* ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'' has the titular ArtifactOfDoom, which gained its power because the soul of the most evil man who ever lived, EvilSorcerer Arawn, [[AndIMustScream was imprisoned in the lead it's made of]].

* Both sequels to ''Film/{{Candyman}}'' features at least one of these that's keeping the spirit of the eponymous villain alive:
** Annie in ''Film/CandymanFarewellToTheFlesh'' comes to learn that before Daniel Robitaille died and became the urban legend Candyman, his soul transferred into a mirror that was being held by his lover Caroline. That mirror must be destroyed in order to defeat him.
** In ''Film/CandymanDayOfTheDead'', it turns out that only Candyman's evil side has been vanquished, and his good side is held within a set of paintings, notably his own, and as everybody knows evil can't exist without good, so the paintings have to be destroyed to permanently kill him.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven'', a person's life is measured by a timepiece. Charlie steals his after death and winds it back up again, returning to life. This has the downside of meaning he'll go to Hell when he finally kicks it again, but he's not too concerned, since as long as the watch keeps ticking he's effectively immortal. [[spoiler:It eventually stops working due to extensive water damage, condemning Charlie to Hell. But he gets saved later because he [[HeroicSacrifice risked his own life to save Ann Marie]]

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', The Heart of Lorkhan acts as a Soul Jar for the Tribunal and Dagoth Ur. Unbinding it renders them all mortal, as the heart is what gave them their divinity in the first place.
*** Unbinding it means they will eventually die naturally, but they are already mortal and can be killed. In fact, the expansion ''Tribunal'' reveals that [[spoiler:one of them is already dead and culminates with you killing another]]. You can also kill one of them in the vanilla game, although this will break the main quest.
