** The Cybermen went from being an [[FridgeHorror implied]] case of this in the Classic Who series[[note]]they only converted themselves into Cybermen when Mondas was knocked out of orbit, necessitating cyber-conversion to survive the environmental devastation - unfortunately, it worked too well and left them as emotionless drones obsessed with converting others[[/note]] to an explicit case in the New Who series. The "cross-dimensional" Cybermen were victims of one madman's obsession with "perfecting" humanity, and were only able to survive because of their emotion suppressors; when these were shut down, they invariably killed themselves out of horror at their transformation.
*** The 12th Doctor amps up this attitude, with both a more tragic portrayal of the Mondasian Cybermen - victims of hideously cruel medical experiments by doctors who figured shutting off their emotion centers was better than fixing the fact they were in ''hideous pain'' - and by retconning that Cybermen are a recurring constant throughout time and space; wherever cybernetic integration technology develops, it will be misused and give rise to a breed of Cybermen.

* The minotaur from the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "The God Complex." [[spoiler:It was a creature that fed on the faith of other creatures, and hated its own existence. However, it was a being of instinct, and could not help pursuing its food source whenever one appeared. The Doctor allowed it to die by cutting off its food supply by destroying Amy's faith in him.]]
** At the end of that episode it also [[spoiler:explicitly compares itself to the Doctor.]]
** Also, the Doctor gives this little hint about the Daleks in ''Doomsday'':
---> ''"Technology using the one thing a Dalek can't do--touch. Sealed inside your casing. Not feeling anything... ever. From birth to death, locked in a cold metal cage. Completely alone. And that explains your voice! [[AndIMustScream No wonder you scream.]]"''
** [[spoiler:The Master, too, who went insane from gazing into the Time Vortex.]]

* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
**
The minotaur Daleks are bred and conditioned to view all other forms of life as a threat, and spend their entire lives sealed in a war machine. Take this quote from the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode Doctor in "Doomsday".
---> ''"Technology using the one thing a Dalek can't do -- touch. Sealed inside your casing. Not feeling anything... ever. From birth to death, locked in a cold metal cage. Completely alone. And that explains your voice! [[AndIMustScream No wonder you scream.]]"''
** The Twelfth Doctor's era leans further into this, showing that their machines periodically mind-wipe them to prevent them questioning orders, and their vocalisers won't even allow them to ''express'' concepts like love or friendship. Oh, and any Dalek that lives to see "old age" gets flushed into their sewers as MeatMoss.

* The character of Harold from the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series. He's a mutated human, and one of the only characters to appear across multiple games. By ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', his mutation has progressed to the point where his form has merged with a tree, and he's rooted to the dirt. Surrounded by the only patch of green vegetation left in the entire Capital Wasteland, he is worshiped by a naturalist cult called the "Treeminders." Sadly, Harold has had enough of life, and wants to die. The Treeminders misinterpret his pleas for release as "tests of their faith," and do everything they can to nurture him and keep him safe. It's up to the player character to decide Harold's fate.
