* The Noise in ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' follows this trope to a tee. Not only this but they will be drawn to negative emotions and can covertly possess people so that they appear to be "in a rut." Unsurprisingly, this game was directed by Tetsuya Nomura and much of the team who made''Kingdom Hearts''.

** The Mara are parasitic beings of pure hate and rage that requires the fear of its victims to survive. As the Doctor learns from a mystic in its second appearance, "fear is the only poison.". When forced to reveal itself, it looks like a rather pathetic giant carnival snake.

** As part of Naruto's test at the Falls of Truth, the hatred that exists within Naruto's heart is given form for Naruto to confront it. He vanquishes it by hugging it.
%%There is no actual evidence on how the Ten-Tails was created. The "formed from negative emotions" concept is strictly fanon at this point.
* At a metaphorical level, the homunculi from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' may be seen as embodying the 'darkness' or despair in the heart of [[spoiler: the alchemists who created them and whose memories of a lost loved one they often carry]]. Or even of [[spoiler: the original person]] or humankind itself. Their ThemeNaming following the SevenDeadlySins helps this interpretation. In the manga, they are manifestations of [[spoiler: Father's cruelty and sins - what he is and whether he could be The Heartless himself is up for debate, though]].

* Ahsoka becomes this in the middle of the Mortis Arc of StarWarsTheCloneWars; complete with MindControlEyes and TaintedVeins. It could also be a supernatural case of MoreThanMindControl. Things get particularly heart breaking when the Son decides YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness and kills her with a DeathTouch. Thankfully [[spoiler: she is resurrected]].

* The Negativitron of ''LittleBigPlanet 2'' was born of the negative personality aspects of the creators of Craftworld. This is technically a spoiler, but the name alone is kind of a giveaway, and it's foreshadowed along the way besides.

* Most ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}'' monsters are of this variety. The setting runs on [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve Clap Your Hands If You]] [[strike:Believe]] Fear, and the {{Big Bad}}s, who are the primary Heartless of this verse, harvest human fear and use it to animate anything the local populace fears, be it jackalopes, wendigos or living blast shadows. These created abominations are powered by fear too, so they are also TheHeartless.
