* Part of the backstory of ''The Hollow Man''/''The Three Coffins'' by Creator/JohnDicksonCarr was a jailbreak by Buried Alive. There was a plague epidemic going on in that prison, and the escaper counted on the burial detail being in too big a hurry for little details like nailing the coffin lid tightly or shoveling very much dirt on top.

Added DiffLines:

* The book ''Elephant Run'' by Roland Smith has the very rare voluntary version, where Nick's father is buried alive with a hollow cross to breathe through to keep him hidden from the invading soldiers. He puts on a brave face for his children, but staying so long like that [[GoMadFromTheIsolation has clearly rattled him]].
