* ZigZaggedTrope in ''Series/TheMagicians''. Penny astral projects out of his body shortly before he dies and becomes something similar to a ghost. He meets another Traveler who did the same thing and thinks he's a ghost, but Penny points out that since they both astral projected, they're on the astral plane.

* Given how often Comicbook/DoctorStrange uses AstralProjection, this sort of thing is inevitable. As a master of the art, he never mistakes himself for deceased, though others (even the ones in the know) will comment on his 'creepy ghost.'

* Given how often Comicbook/DoctorStrange uses AstralProjection, this sort of thing is inevitable. As a master of the art, he never mistakes himself astral forms for spirits of the deceased, though others (even the ones in the know) and he has to make a conscious effort to render himself visible to normal sight. When he does so, other (non-mystic) characters will comment on often refer to his astral form as his 'creepy ghost.' He uses this effect on one occasion to convince a bank robber he will be haunted forever unless he releases his hostages and surrenders. It works . . . apparently the "criminals are a superstitious and cowardly lot" trope is not franchise-specific.

* ''Series/{{Soap}}'' ended with [[CutShort many plot threads hanging]], including Jessica about to be shot by a firing squad in Central America. Next season, she shows up on spinoff ''{{Benson}}'' as a ghost which only Benson can see. But then she finds out she's not really dead, she's just in a coma in a Central American hospital.
* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' serial "Day of the Daleks", the ghosts the Doctor is asked to investigate turn out to be [[LaResistance time-travelers from the 22nd Century]] making "an unstable transfer" into the 20th. (The rebels need a "stable point" which exists in both 20th and 22nd centuries. Auderley House no longer exists in their time, but a nearby tunnel does.)
