Usually seen in cartoons. When someone (usually a robot or some other creature, to whom this would not be fatal) is decapitated, the head will often try to direct the body towards itself to facilitate Pulling Themselves Together. However, the body, not having eyes, will often stumble around clumsily for a few minutes before locating the head - if it ever finds the head at all. Can lead to Fridge Logic about how the head expected the body to be able to hear the directions, as the body lacks both eyes and ears. Can also lead to a Head Turned Backwards situation when the two pieces are finally reunited.
