** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', the dragons attacking the land are a type of Aedra, and therefore functionally immortal, as killing them normally just returns them to their home realm. But whenever the player character, known as Dovahkiin/Dragonborn, kills a dragon, he or she prevents their souls from escaping by absorbing them in order to gain more power.

* '''Just The Soul''' -- The soul is "merely" eaten or taken, but the person's body is still alive. Often, the monster will gain power from this, while the victim turns into an EmptyShell. Recovery is sometimes possible, sometimes not.
* '''Killed Too''' -- The soul is stolen or eaten, ''and'' the person is killed in the process. If [[BackFromTheDead resurrection]] is possible, they nearly always [[CameBackWrong Come Back Wrong]] thanks to this, since the soul is most definitely not where it belongs. Often, this is exactly what the villain wants -- "Steal people's souls and kill them, then resurrect them as an immortal army." If [[BackFromTheDead resurrection]] is [[AllDeathsFinal impossible]], then the person is probably DeaderThanDead. In a NobodyCanDie setting, this may be reduced to "loses consciousness, and is slowly dying unless the soul can be recovered." Recovery here is possible, but with a definite sense of urgency.
* '''Drained After Death''' -- The soul is stolen or eaten after the victim is killed by other means. Though it tends to play out similarly to '''Killed Too''' from here, this is commonly used by Amalgams Of Souls to increase their power.
