** ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'''s Kengo [[ItMakesSenseInContext used to be a fidget switch]]. While he's not directly necessary for the villain's plans, he ''is'' necessary for the BigGood's, so the villain wants to kill him.
** ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'''s Koyomi is the [[PublicDomainArtifact Philosopher's Stone]] and a human corpse merged into a VoodooZombie that needs regular infusions of Haruto's mana to survive. The BigBad wants her [[spoiler:to try and finish the process of reviving her]].
** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' has several members of the cast who used to be video game programs before they were brought to life. Most of them are villains, but in the second act they also all double as the {{Macguffin}}s the BigBad's after, since he needs their data to create the ultimate video game.

* Dawn in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' is an ancient energy construct called The Key who was hidden in human form by a group of mystical monks. Specifically, they made her [[TheChosenOne Buffy]]'s sister through a CosmicRetcon, so that Buffy's drive to protect her would be even stronger. [[PhysicalGod Glory]] wants to use Dawn's blood to open the doorway back to her native dimension, but the process would doom our world and possibly even every other. In the end, it turns out that [[spoiler:Dawn's human form was just created out of Buffy's blood, so Buffy can close the portal by making a HeroicSacrifice in her place]].
