* In ''{{Nichijou}}'', miss Nakamura wishes to do this to the robotic Nano, so she can take credit for inventing her. If Nakamura weren't so inept at her repeated attempts to kidnap Nano, this would be quite dark for such an upbeat show.
* In HigurashiWhenTheyCry there were three variations. [[spoiler: The first one was what Takano wants to do with Rika so that she can jump start the Hinamizawa disease and have everyone kill one and other. The second variation involved both Satako Houjo who was at a higher level of the disease and needed to take injections to quell it. Again Takano wants to dissect her, only in her case, so she can study her. The third was the people of Hinamizawa, back when they were called Onigafuchi Village. They killed, dissected and cannibalized the higher diseased members so they could develop a stronger immunity to the disease.]]

* In MercedesLackey's [[UrbanFantasy urban fantasies]], this trope is out in full force. The [[GovernmentConspiracy secret government facility]] or evil corporations are more than happy to track down people with psychic or magic talents and do nasty things to them in the name of controlling them and/or using their powers.

* Technomancers in [[Shadowrun]] are advised to keep their powers secret, as they are rare and not well understood. Thus they are both valuable and threatening; most mega-corps have large standing rewards for anyone who brings in a technomancer.

* Toyed with in ''HarvestMoon DS.'' Local MadScientist Daryl has been chasing the strange creature Mukumuku for ''years'' in an attempt to figure out how it works, and given the long and fantastic family history of genetic experimentation he brags of, it seems ItRunsInTheFamily. So when chance favors him, and he happens upon an injured [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent mermaid girl?]] He takes her home to his basement, and... [[MoralityPet diligently cares for her until she recovers.]] And if you befriend said mermaid, she ''openly chastises you'' for daring to think Daryl would experiment on her.

* Subverted in ''JohnnyTest''. Johnny doesn't want anyone to know that his dog Dukey can talk, because if they did they would ''make him a reality tv show''! It makes sense, as there is no usual scientific data that could be gained from it that couldn't also be gained by, you know, just ''asking'' Susan and Mary, since they gave him all of those abilities. In one episode, the Network Executives are shown to scare even the axe-crazy Repto-Slicer.

* Justified in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', where his ghost-obsessed parents aren't getting ethics approval for their research and have explicitly said they'd like to dissect or kill any ghost they find "molecule by molecule". However, it's odd that Danny was so certain they'd do the same to their own child, a ''half''-ghost.
** Well, with Jack constantly shouting that when he catches the ghost kid, he will rip him apart, molecule by molecule, it's reasonably understandable. One episode has them find out and accept him, only for him to [[NiceJobBreakingItHero wipe their minds]] for [[WhatAnIdiot no reason,]] [[StatusQuoIsGod causing them to go back to hunting him]].

* Notably averted in WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries. He actually forms a public research pact with S.T.A.R. Labs so that everyone benefits.

* What [[HeroAntagonist Dib]] wants to do to [[VillainProtagonist Zim]] on ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim.'' Unlike most of these examples, this is [[BlackAndGreyMorality not entirely unjustified]], especially since we see Zim [[MoralMyopia doing experiments on humans himself]].

* An issue of Comicbook/{{Hellblazer}} has John Constantine dealing with the ghost of a recently deceased Unit 731 scientist who participated in these kinds of experiments. In contrast to the experiments described below under Real Life that at least had purpose, the ghost relates all manner of ForTheEvulz stories about the pointless 'experiments' he and his colleagues had done. He even preempts the question of "why?" by explaining "You have to understand; we were insane." His last request is that he wants to die being vivisected by John using his rusty wartime surgical implements before moving on, not for absolution, but because he feels it would be appropriate.
