* In ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'', the Fae are one of the most powerful races in the setting. Their one major limitation is that their race has a set number of souls -- for a new Fae to be born, another has to die. They have no way to actually increase their population. They've tried to get around this in the past by having children with other races. Sadly, the resulting hybrids are no exception to the rule and are thus born soulless. They linger in a catatonic state and always die young.

* Idenn of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe'' has no soul, although she didn't give it up willingly: Her soul was destroyed by her fellow dragons to extinguish her free will and emotions so that she could be used as a living weapon.

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', [[UnreliableExpositor according to Beatrice]], furniture is like this, including [[ShrinkingViolet Shannon]], [[PinocchioSyndrome Kanon]], and [[ExtremeDoormat Genji]]. Presumably not Kumasawa though. [[spoiler:While this isn't exactly true, there's a reason why Beatrice has this view.]]

* Joker becomes this in virtually every adaptation of his origin-story and is apparently the result of a side-effect of his "insanity". As such every-time he's temporarily rendered sane he regrets his crimes.(Although he still has antipathy towards Batman and Gotham)


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Comicbook/InfinityInc'', Hector Hall was born without a soul. This did not prevent him from being a dedicated hero and loving husband, but eventually enabled an evil entity to possess his body. Since he existed as a spirit for a while and was eventually reincarnated, it's not actually clear what being "born without a soul" even means in this case.

* The horror movie ''Film/{{Chiller}}'' was about a man who is reawakened from cold [[HumanPopsicle suspended animation]], but CameBackWrong, and started engaging in evil behavior, including rape. A priest states that this is because he's technically "dead" and his soul is now gone.

Added DiffLines:

* In the {{Xanth}} novels, typically only human or human-descended creatures have souls (though that [[HalfHumanHybrid covers a lot of ground]]). Souls can also be traded, both in their entirety and in fractions. They also regenerate over time - sell half your soul to a Night-Mare for a ride, and it will eventually grow back for you, though the Night-Mare's half will not. There's also nothing preventing a Soulless character from being an overall decent person, though acquiring a soul will likely cause them to develop more empathy.
** At one point in the first novel, a Manticore is introduced serving the Good Magician for a year in return for having his question answered: Do I have a soul? He is told that only a being with a soul would worry about having one, so he does. The Manticore finds this answer very satisfactory, as it makes the existence of his soul self-evident.

* In ''Videogame/PillarsOfEternity'', this is what defines the Hollowborn. In recent years an increasing number of children in Dyrwood have been born without a soul which makes them catatonic. Attempts to remedy this have had disastrous results like trying to give them an animal soul, which seemed to work, until the children hit puberty and became feral and violent, turning into what are now called wichts.
