** A similarly immortal character appears in ''Primogenitor'', a novel starring [[MadScientist Fabius Bile]]. Bile comments that he once dissected him down to the atomic level trying to learn the secret of his immortality. His assistant comments that it's no wonder the immortal hates Bile, and Bile corrects him: the immortal's angry because Bile ''wasn't'' able to kill him.

** Played with in ''Discworld/ThiefOfTime''. One of the Auditors, beings who abhor any sense of individuality, takes on a human form and gets to like it. However, they recognize how wrong this is and consider themselves insane, while still being too attached to life to give it up. For the Auditors ''being human'' is this trope.

* A few of the ''ComicBook/MarvelZombies'' are like this, particularly Spider-Man, who still feels guilty over his HorrorHunger. Most of them, however, just accept what they've become and even come to enjoy it.

* There's a Halloween Episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' which parodies Franchise/HarryPotter, and has Bart at one point attempting to turn a frog into a prince. He bungles the spell and creates a "sin against nature" unable to do anything except vomit and claim to be in pain.

* Grendel from the 2007 film adaptation of ''Film/{{Beowulf|2007}}'' is driven to his rampage not only by his hunger, but also by an apparent case of extreme misophonia triggered by the noise of revelry at Hrothgar's mead hall. His numerous deformities also appear to leave him in almost constant pain.

* Creator/{{Laika}}:
** In ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}'', both [[ApologeticAttacker the Other Father]] and [[StepfordSmiler the Other Wybie]] were created by [[HumanoidAbomination the Other Mother]] to lure [[PluckyGirl Coraline]] in, but clearly feel conflicted about that and seem to care about her. [[spoiler:Both pull HeroicSacrifices to save her.]]
** ''WesternAnimation/ParaNorman'' reveals that [[spoiler:the witch's ghost is actually a terrified little girl named Aggie Pendergast who could [[ISeeDeadPeople see ghosts]] just like Norman. Several centuries ago, she was [[BurnTheWitch hanged]] because [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer the other townsfolk]] feared her powers, and now she's [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds lashing out in anger and fear]].]]

* The gem mutants in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' are this considering their first appearance has one crying out in pain as silhouettes of its original forms appear before it fully forms, and it wasn't hostile, only clinging on to Garnet as if it recognized her and was begging for help.

* The protagonist of the Canadian horror film ''Film/{{Afflicted}}'' was terminally ill before a vampire took pity on him and turned him. It turns out to be a horrible mistake. While it does cure his disease, his particular kind of vampirism is a very nasty kind: he cannot survive on anything except human blood, and if he goes too long without feeding, he will turn into a mindless killing machine until sated. Unfortunately, he also [[CannotSelfTerminate cannot end his suffering by any conventional means]].
