* Referenced in ''{{Watch My Chops}}'', when Corneil said tp Bernie that he did not want anyone to know his secret for fear of being a laboratory specimen because he can talk.
-->'''Bernie''': Surprise! And I'm gonna play the cassette to John and Beth and then, hello, evening news!
-->'''Corneil''': Ah! And then, hello, animal research lab! Oh, Bernie! You can't!

* During [[WorldWarTwo World War 2]], Japanese Unit 731 did this to Prisoners of War and Chinese civilians without anesthetics while vivisecting. They also tore babies out of pregnant women, tested how much damage bombs and various diseases did on the prisoners, and tried out chemical weapons, all without anesthesia or treatment. Unlike Mengele, they actually did produce some useful data, which led to the US military's biological and chemical weapons departments insisting on their freedom in exchange for their findings. [[KarmaHoudini They got it, their medical qualifications meaning many also went on to become rich]].

* In the ''{{X-COM}}'' series, it's the standard procedure when dealing with captive aliens but the only dead ones. Live ones are interrogated ''and'' then disposed of[[note]]You actually get a corpse added to your base stores after an interrogation[[/note]].
** In the [[XCOMEnemyUnknown Firaxis remake]], after the first interrogation (apparently, very painful), [[HerrDoktor Dr. Vahlen]] tells your NumberTwo that the alien didn't survive the procedure. Indeed, none of the interrogated aliens do.
** In ''TheBureauXCOMDeclassified'', a different example in the form of using captured aliens for target practice.

* In Videogame/{{Infamous}}, Cole receives several warnings that the government wouldn't treat him kindly if they got their hands on him. It turns out to be a subversion: they already know how to endow someone with superpowers, they just want to control Cole and choose what direction he's pointed in since his powers are already very offensively oriented. Between the games, every government agent who has this goal for him is killed anyway. The mentalist Alden Tate, however, ''is'' vivisected.

* Notably averted in ''Film/EscapeToWitchMountain'' and ''Return From Witch Mountain'', which revolved around the HumanAlien kids being more in danger of exploitation by greedy individuals than dissection by TheMenInBlack. However, it's played straight in the 2008 ''RaceToWitchMountain''.

* Agito, the short-tempered fire fairy from ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', can only remember being confined in a lab, which had left her almost completely broken, physically and mentally. According to her, she was only days away from death by exhaustion before being rescued.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{PS238}}'':
** The original Rainmaker program was centered on studying superpowers by kidnapping the titular Rainmaker, a boy with no power except to control whether or not it rained. He couldn't even make dangerous lightning storms until his powers got enhanced by a MadScientist. They thought that they could figure out the source of all powers, but couldn't contain any of the actually dangerous supers, so they were forced to use him. Doctor Irons helped/forced him to escape, and the program ground to a halt.
** By the time of the story proper, the government has backed off on this stance, not least because of the failure of that original Rainmaker program. There's also the fact that supers have mostly proven very cooperative if treated with respect.
** When an alien child (later named Prospero) lands at the school, the faculty is worried that the government is going to take him away and perform experiments on him, but the general who showed up points out that the last alien who showed up became the world's most valiant defender when he could have made a pretty good bid to conquer it instead, so they're willing to treat any aliens with respect and courtesy unless given a reason not to.

* ''MummyTheCurse'' gives us Last Dynasty Inc., a mega corp that got itself set up after the very fortuitous discovery of an Arisen's tomb. They've found ways to measure [[LifeEnergy Sekhem]] with scientific equipment, and are using it to [[AntiVillain generate cures for cancer, more healthy steroids, and probative attempts at an AIDS vaccine]]. However, the only real sources of Sekhem are the Relics guarded and treasured by the Arisen, and the Arisen themselves, which means they're always on the lookout for new resources...
