Added DiffLines:

* At the beginning of ''Webcomic/{{Aurora}}'', the Collector steals the god Vash’s soul, leaving behind his body. His body, meanwhile, refuses to die, but rather than being an EmptyShell somehow procures an entirely new consciousness separate from Vash.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/DustDevil'': This is the Dust Devil’s entire M.O. Apparently, the process of soul stealing entails shooting photographs of the victim, dismembering them, painting the walls with their blood and fat, and keeping their fingers.

Added DiffLines:

** Cacodaemons can devour the body of the dead and encase their soul in a gem, which they then regurgitate. Some evil characters keep them as familiars for this purpose alone.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', rather unusually for a sci-fi story. Late in the story, Kevyn manages to isolate the soul of a thinking creature as a manner of "aggregate waveform" independant from the "hardware" in use, meaning a computer simulation of the person, the living person, and the person as an AI would have separate souls, and all equally valid. Very briefly later, it's figured out that the soul can be teraported ''straight'' out of the hardware (if TeleportInterdiction isn't online), killing it in the process and putting the soul somewhere else. While it's perfectly valid to use as a weapon, it has seem most use as an emergency evacuation mechanism that Petey uses when large masses of people cannot be rescued physically in time; he just rips the souls and places them in a virtual world, where he can put them back into a clone later on.


** After [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe ripping him in half]] in their Death Battle, [[spoiler:[[MortalKombat Shao Kahn]] does this to [[Franchise/StreetFighter M. Bison]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheStoneSky'' mentions in passing that a large number of souls of the dead have been imprisoned as "hostages" by [[spoiler: [[GeniusLoci Father Earth]], who releases them after the moon is returned.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/WonderWoman'': As a valkyrie Gundra can steal the souls of those she kills, making her an dangerous opponent even beyond death.


** In the spin-off ActionAdventure game ''Redguard'', the Sload {{Necromancer}} N'Gasta has set up a "soul snare" over the island of Stros M'Kai, which captures the souls of anyone who dies there. He uses the souls in his experiments and/or trades them to the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] Clavicus Vile. As is the case for all Sload, he has an innate LackOfEmpathy, which means he has no regard or pity for those he has captured, even comparing them to "coins in a pouch".

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TalionRevenant'': Talions have the power to suck a person's soul out of their body with the magical death's head tattoo which they get. In their case, this kills whoever they use it on. Usually they don't gain anything this way except an easy means of killing someone, and the souls are cleansed with a special ritual. A few though retain their vitality and can be used to reanimate corpses in an enhanced manner. An enhancement is also possible of the person holding them.


* Phoebe and Paige in ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' ''borrowed'' Darryl's soul against his will to pass as Valkyries and left his body in an alley. Darryl was revived when his soul walked back into his body.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Ragman}}'': The Suit of Souls is made of the corrupted souls of murderers who find themselves lending power and strength to the one who killed them in order to work off the crimes staining their souls and gain freedom from the suit.


* In ''WesternAnimation/Hilda'', Enchanted Tide Pool Mice take the soul of the person they're created for and give it to their creator after a 30-day trial period. Which category it falls under is unknown because Hilda stops the only two she created before the end of their 30-day trial periods.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'': Hungry Ghost Monks regain hit points whenever they land a killing blow. Higher levels also allow them to regain health whenever they score a critical hit and eventually whenever they hit at all.

** At high [[CharacterLevel level]], the Medium CharacterClass can reflexively become a WillingHost to the soul of an ally who dies nearby, gaining access to the ally's non-physical special abilities. The ally also has a chance to assume control of the Medium's body if they disagree on a course of action.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' has soulsteel, which is forged in the Underworld for use in various different artifacts, and has the ghost(s) [[AndIMustScream trapped inside screaming in agony for eternity]].
** There are also Akuma, [[DealWithTheDevil people who sell their souls to the Yozis for power]]. [[GoneHorriblyRight While they do gain power]], they also lose their free will and have their entire personality, abilities and even memories reshaped to serve the Yozi's best.
