* This forms the central conflict of the children's book ''Sylvester and the Magic Pebble'', as Sylvester very foolishly uses the pebble to wish that he was a rock. He [[AndIMustScream remains fully aware the entire time he is a rock]], and can see the pebble just out of reach the entire time. [[spoiler: He finally turns back when his parents pick up the pebble and place it on the rock so he is able to make a wish to turn back to himself]].

* ''Literature/WingsOfFire'' has Stonemover, a [=NightWing=] dragon and [[spoiler:Sunny's father]], realize that using his animus powers [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity too much will ruin his mind and soul]]. So he ends up reversing the animus effects: he can't go insane with power...but he ends up slowly turning to stone.

* Before the events of ''Manga/ZatchBell'', there was another tournament held where one of the competitors had petrified at least twenty of the other demons for a thousand years; fully conscious. Keep in mind that most of them are children, some of them as young as six.

** [[SealedEvilInACan Discord was imprisoned in a statue]] by Celestia and Luna for being a evil tyrant that ruled Equestria in everlasting chaos and suffering.

** There is also a pool which turns anything which touches it to gold in ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader''. A gold statue of a man lies at the bottom of it, clearly the remains of someone who thought the water was safe. Caspian names the island Deathwater, and forbids travel to it.

* In the novella "I Like To Watch", the protagonist turns her restless adventurer sister into stone by watching her thoroughly. It's some sort of a an ultimate "you're better home" statement from the protagonist, who spent her whole life in their childhood home, watching things rather than doing them.

** Progressive Petrification: In the new ''Series/DoctorWho'' series, the episodes ''New Earth'' (2e01) and ''The Fires of Pompeii'' (4e02) feature people gradually turning to stone due to an illness.
** "The Five Doctors" involves a villain looking for Rassilon's secret of immortality. It turns out, though, that [[spoiler: the supposed "immortality" is a trap Rassilon laid for megalomaniacs. Borusa becomes immortal by being turned into a [[AndIMustScream paralyzed, living stone face]] on the base of Rassilon's coffin.]]

** Subverted in ''The Time of Angels'', when [[spoiler:the Angel in Amy's mind makes her think she's turning to stone. She isn't, but it takes the Doctor biting the affected hand to snap her out of it.]]
** Also in the old series, this happened in the Season 26 serial "Ghost Light" - the victims were petrified by the story's BigBad, [[LightIsNotGood Light]], because of his fear of change and evolution (they had 'adapted' to a new situation, and so he ensured they would 'never change again').

* ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' features cockatrices and basilisks, but their gazes only significantly reduce stats of their target. Why are they on this list, then? Because of the Chocatrice, a magical hybrid created by the Easter Bunny to simultaneously deal with a pest problem in his workshop and make up a deficiency in his chocolate production quota. The Chocatrice's gaze actually does turn anything it hits into chocolate[[note]] chocolate ''chunks'', to be specific, but it's implied that the player breaks the resulting chocolate statue into smaller, easier-to-transport pieces[[/note]].
