** 2nd Ed introduces Insatiate Alchemists, humans who have learned of the Prometheans' status as walking alchemical reactors and decided to hunt them down in the name of working wonders. Mind you, the miracle ingredient for the Alchemists' works is the substance that naturally accrues as Prometheans [[ToBecomeHuman take steps towards completing their Pilgrimage]]... but they don't really seem to care. One anecdote describes an Alchemist who's made a killing on the "cash for gold" market - namely because he always seems to store of strangely organ-shaped ore...

* ''Film/TheAgeOfAdaline'': After being discovered by a police officer, Adaline narrowly escaped being sent somewhere presumably for "study". She clearly fears a repeat of this and what that might include, staying under the radar over the subsequent decades.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Vogelein}}'', this is one of the arguments the Duskie gives for why HumansAreBastards, saying that they'll take the title character, lock her up, and take her to pieces to see how she works. Considering that she's a clockwork Faerie...

* In one of the Franchise/{{Halo}} novels this is the reason given by Doctor Halsey for why the data on how Sargent Johnson survived contact with the Flood can never be told to anyone (even the good Sargent himself, who would likely turn himself in). Ironically, she tells this to the Master Chief . . . who later crushes the data crystal containing aforementioned information.

* Referenced in ''ChronoCrusade'', when the [[ChurchMilitant Magdalan Order]] approaches [[BlessedWithSuck Joshua]] about joining them so they can help him learn to use his powers better, his sister Rosette tries to convince him not to by telling him they'll perform experiments on him and "[[PeopleJars pickle you in formaldehyde!]]" Joshua's response is just to laugh and tell her she reads too many books. (And she doesn't seem to believe it anyway, she just [[DontSplitUsUp doesn't want them to take Joshua away from her]].)
