* Clearly the most evil thing Comicbook/SpiderMan's enemy Kraven the Hunter did was to inflict this on the hero during the "Comicbok/KravensLastHunt" storyline (also known as "Fearful Symmetry") the reason it's regarded as the definitive Kraven story. Having been driven completely AxeCrazy, Kraven confronts the hero, defeating him (using a gun, the weapon he has, up to this point, always hated, shooting the hero while helpless due to a tranquilizer dart) and believing him dead, buries him alive and then impersonates him. Spidey eventually digs his way out, but it takes ''a week'', due to Spidey having to recover from the paralysis that leaves him [[AndIMustScream still conscious and unable to move.]] Indeed, this experience clearly gave him nightmares for years to come, as ''every'' time Kraven was mentioned from that point on focuses on that story.

** Happens again in a ''Batman'' story arc, done by SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker to [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Dr. Hurt]]. The guy slips on a banana peel the Joker planted, breaks his neck and is paralyzed. He is injected with Joker Venom and buried alive while still under its effects. Oh, and [[WhoWantsToLiveForever Dr. Hurt is immortal]], [[AFateWorseThanDeath so he's stuck, paralyzed]] [[GoMadFromTheIsolation and laughing at himself forever]] [[AndIMustScream inside of a coffin six feet in the ground]]. [[spoiler:Though it's not like the Joker didn't WARN the guy first (see ''Batman: R.I.P.'')]], and to be fair Hurt ''did'' [[SealedEvilInACan kind of]] [[NiceJobFixingItVillain deserve it]].

* In Creator/DavidGemmell's ''The Swords of Night and Day'', [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Jianna]] [[BadBoss buries an advisor alive]] inside a large stone chamber after he speaks his mind too freely. She later decides to reverse the decision, but by the time he's dug up he'd found a way to hang himself.

* In 1990, Creator/{{Universal}} produced the made-for-TV movie ''Buried Alive'', in which Clint Goodman (Tim Matheson of ''Film/AnimalHouse'' fame) is imperfectly murdered by his wife (Creator/JenniferJasonLeigh) and her doctor lover (''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''' William Atherton) and... He claws his way out of his coffin, only to turn the tables on her, by [[spoiler:burying her alive with her dead lover in his own grave]]. The film was successful enough to inspire a [[GenderFlip gender-flipped]] remake, ''Buried Alive II'' (1997) with Ally Sheedy as the unfortunate not-quite-a-corpse and Matheson both directing and reprising his role as Clint Goodman.

* The Hogan's Heroes fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8661425/1/Darkness ''Darkness'']] has Peter Newkirk not only encounter ghost lights and [[DoctorWho Weeping Angels]] but save a woman who was buried alive [[spoiler: by her husband after he got tired of her domineering ways.]] Even Hochstetter, the die-hard Nazi Gestapo major, is horrified at the thought of what would have happened if Newkirk hadn't been there.

* There were two ''Buried Alive'' movies, each one beginning with one spouse near-death by poisoning. A subsequent rushed funeral apparently skips autopsy and embalming. Later, the intended victim wakes up, digs their way out, and plots elaborate revenge.

** At the end of the first film, the male protagonist buries his cheating wife alive in his grave, alongside the body of her boyfriend and the money they were trying to steal. He avoided getting embalmed because his wife wanted him in the ground as soon as possible.
** In the second film, the female protagonist is saved from her grave by the first film's protagonist (who later dies for real due to health problems caused by the poisoning). Miraculously, she avoided getting embalmed because of a machine malfunction despite her husband's orders. She gets ''her'' revenge on her conniving husband and his girlfriend by entombing them in a boat and sinking it. [[spoiler: The film ends with the two, still trapped in the boat and ''still alive'', uselessly screaming for help]].

* One episode of ''CrossingJordan'' involved a serial killer who buries his victims alive -- with a ''walkie-talkie so he can hear their dying pleas''. Shudder.
