* In ''VideoGame/MegaMan1'', shooting out the legs of the Crazy Razy enemies that appear in Ice Man's level will cause their upper bodies to fly at you and attack. Aiming for the upper bodies before they can do this will prevent them from becoming more dangerous.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' has Toffee, who takes this trope [[UpToEleven to the max]]. Having [[spoiler: Rendered all magic useless, disposed of Star, regained his lost finger and destroyed Butterfly Castle]] he walks away listlessly. He doesn't notice Star's attack. At the end of it he is literally reduced to a pile of bones and goo that we can only assume was his flesh once. [[EyeScream One of his eyes is even falling out of his head.]] In response, he laughs and crawls towards the group of heroes, assuring them that they haven't won and that only he knows how everything turns out. It is only after [[spoiler: Ludo pushes a column onto him]] that he appears dead. Even then, they aren't entirely sure.

* Black Claw in ''[[Anime/CuteyHoney Re: Cutie Honey]]'' is all over the place with this one. First she's decapitated, and her body gets up and keeps fighting while her head continues taunting the protagonist. When she feels her body needs the power boost form her head again, she reattaches it, only to be bisected vertically. Her two halves have a brief conversation afterward.

This trope is basically when a sentient being is able to function without their entire body in one piece. The portion of the being that's still functioning is often quite frightening to look at. In most cases it takes a hit to the brain to actually stop it, but there have been cases where even ''that'' doesn't work.
