* ''InLivingColor'' had "The Head Detective", a series of skits about a cop that was badly injured and had to undergo amputation... of everything except his head (with little plastic feet and hands stuck on.)
* Series/{{Angel}} once went up against a demon that kept piecing itself back together and attacking no matter how many times he chopped him in half.
-->'''Angel:''' Come ON! I'm ''holding'' your ''head!''

* Mummies in Hexen II. Blast them once, they lose their arms and keep shuffling. Blast their legs off, they inchworm toward you. And then, when they get close enough, they ''bite''. The only way to put them down is to gib them. Hope you have plenty of mana.

* The Mgalekgolo/"Hunters" from ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. Justified because they're [[TheWormThatWalks made up of thousands of Lekgolo/"Worms" all working together to create a large "body" designed for fighting]].

* In ''{{Madworld}}'''s Mad Castle stage, the common {{Mooks}} are zombies. If you want to cut them up, be sure to bisect them; cutting them in half at the waist won't put them away, and eventually they'll even regrow the bottom half.

* Crops up occasionally in RatchetAndClank. Throughout the games, there are a number of robotic enemies who continue operating even once their legs, upper body or even head have been blasted to smithereens.
* Zigzagged in MetalArmsGlitchInTheSystem. Most enemies will continue to try to fight the player even if they've been completely delimbed... keyword being "try".

* ''BattleAngelAlita'' is rather notorious for this, once ''letting'' a foe slice her arm off at the shoulder so she could overcome a reach disadvantage with [[GrievousHarmWithABody the resulting impromptu club]].
* Hisoka from HunterXHunter lets an arm get cut off for fun one time, too. He then swings it around on invisible sticky energy string for a while, and then patches it on with camouflage energy sheets and pretends it's reattached before playing with the guy a little more and then losing interest. Then he goes away, calls a specialist to sew his arm back on with energy microfilament, and has a shower.

* In ''FrankenFran'', people upgraded with regeneration tend to do this when bisected. In one case Fran herself cut her bottom half off when her hips didn't fit in the ventilation duct she needed to escape through. She survived through, being ambiguously undead.

** From the same author, the elder Toguro brother in ''YuYuHakusho'' gets blasted down to about half of his head, first by Kuwabara owning him and then by his little brother exploding. He's weakened, but still perfectly lucid.
