* The protagonist in ''Manga/MadeInAbyss'', Riko, initially hides Reg from staff at the Belchero Orphanage because she fears this happening to him. Since he's a robot who apparently came from the Abyss, and since relics are frequently objects of study, this fear isn't unreasonable. Later, when Reg and Riko meet Nanache, she explains that she normally hides from Delvers because she fears this happening to her, as well, [[spoiler:since she is the only person known to have returned from the Sixth Layer of the Abyss with most of her humanity intact]].

* ''Manga/{{Ajin}}'': Getting caught by the government is basically fate worse than death for any Ajin, as Kei found out during his short stay. The scientists basically do all sorts of horrible tests, from slowly cutting off all your limbs, to crushing you in a trash compactor, etc. etc. Companies will pay to use Ajin to test the safety functions of their products. And as Ajin simply revive fully healthy whenever they "die", it's basically eternal hell for them. Luckily for Kei, he managed to escape after only a few days of torture.

* ''ComicBook/SupermanSecretIdentity'' - Clark ''is'' captured and experimented on by shady military types, and only narrowly escapes.

* ''Film/JackFrost1998''. Jack Frost's son is afraid (and to his credit, more GenreSavvy than his dad) that Jack will be experimented on by the government if he'd ever been discovered. Jack says he doesn't care, as long as he gets to spend some time with his son.

* The ComicBook/{{Planetary}}/[[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]] crossover oneshot is set in an alternate reality where the Planetary organization controls the advancement of science and technology the world over. By the time of the story, they've ''already'' cut up [[TheFlash Barry Allen]] and Ray Palmer (the Atom) in order to create super-fast couriers and shrinking technology for ''Fantastic Voyage''-style medical procedures.

* Historically, this trope has been the subject of some intense debate in medical fields. Significant advances in medical science have been made by examining the results of some horrifically unethical medical practices (the aforementioned Mengele freezing experiments being arguably the best known example) and there are plenty of health care professionals who feel uncomfortable building on knowledge that was obtained through what amounts to torture. After all, knowledge gained in such a manner could save thousands of lives and give the deaths of those experimented upon long-lasting meaning - but it also tacitly acknowledges that such torturous practices [[TheEndsJustifyTheMeans can be given a justification if the results are good enough]].

* Nedzu from ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' is a very rare example of a non-human animal with a Quirk, which led to him being experimented on when he was first discovered. Eventually he was freed, though, and despite the abuse he suffered, he decided to become a hero with his SuperIntelligence, eventually becoming the principal of [[AcademyOfAdventure UA High]]. His glee when given a socially acceptable opportunity to make humans squirm serves as a sign of how traumatic the experiments were for him, though.

* During [[WorldWarTwo World War 2]], the Japanese Unit 731, headed by Shiro Ishiii, did this to Prisoners of War and Chinese civilians with their vivisection campaigns. They also tore babies out of pregnant women, threw prisoners into pressure chambers, tested how much damage bombs and various diseases did on the prisoners, and tried out poison gas, all without anesthesia or any medical treatment. Unlike Mengele, some doctors actually did produce some useful data such as the infection rates of malaria and created artificial blood, which led to the US military's biological and chemical weapons departments insisting on their freedom of ''all'' the doctors, including Ishii, in exchange for their findings. [[KarmaHoudini They got it, their medical qualifications meaning many also went on to become rich]].
