* In ''Literature/StarlightAndShadows'', Vestriss, a powerful illithid exile, traps the souls of her victims in a magic tapestry. This makes it impossible for clerics to contact her victims' ghosts, thus ensuring they truly do take their secrets to their graves, and also allows her to torture the trapped spirits for amusement.

* ''Literature/DragonBones'' has Oreg, whose fate is something inbetween - he was given a bowl of soup, ate it, and when he awoke he ''was the castle'', Hurog, after which the series is named. He can materialize a body, but not leave the castle and/or his current owner. He has often expressed a desire to die, but is effectively immortal unless his owner decides to kill him. This, however, would also ruin the castle, which is why no one ever did it. In some sense of the word he is alive, although whether ''that'' is a live is debatable.

* Hemalurgy, one of the three systems of FunctionalMagic in ''Franchise/{{Mistborn}}'' involves stealing part of someone's soul and trapping it in a metal spike; the soul's energy can be then transferred to someone else by piercing their body with the spike, with the precise effects determined by what metal the spike is made out of and where exactly it's placed in the body. In the series all known cases of this have been fatal to the "donor" though WordOfGod is it's theoretically possible for the donor to survive, though it would do unspecified very bad things to them regardless.

* [[FunctionalMagic Awakening]] in ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'' runs on a comparatively benign version of this. Breath is a supernatural force that everyone has, and it's not quite a soul but is considered an aspect of the soul. It can be voluntarily given away (which does not kill or cripple the donor, but does dampen their senses and make them more prone to illness), and is neccessary to provide power to Awaken inanimate objects- powerful Awakeners need hundreds of Breaths stockpiled, and having so many at a time provides a number of more subtle magical abilities. In the kingdom of Hallandren, the "Breath trade" is common practice; in the neighboring kingdom of Idris, losing one's Breath is considered AFateWorseThanDeath and Awakening is strictly illegal.

* In "Literature/TheStonesAreHatching", the merrows do this to Uncle Murdo and Aunt Audrey. [[spoiler:this is also what the devil attempted to do, first to Alexia's teacher and then to her, in the backstory.]]

* '''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 peoples' 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.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' episode "Demongo the Soul Collector", it's really not clear how his powers work, although it seems to be a variation. He appears to consume the soul ''and'' body of the victim and transform them into "essence", as he calls it, but the victim seems to be OnlyMostlyDead, because Demongo can reform them and command them as slaves. (Eventually, Jack finds a way to sever the bond he has with them, and they seem to be restored to full life when released.

* In {{Contractor}}, the main character is given this (magical) power by an inter-dimensional alien. Basically the life force of anything or anyone he kills is added to his own. On earth however, the magicians consider this to be necromancy and one of the most evil forms of magic, even if he's using it to defend the planet from an inter-dimensional invasion, so this naturally causes a lot of the inter-character strife.
