** It's off-handedly mentioned in ''The Discworld Companion'' that the BigBad of ''Discworld/WitchesAbroad'' "has buried three husbands, at least two of whom were already dead."

* In an issue of ''ComicBook/{{Dazzler}}'', Alison is hired to appear in a music video that was a thinly-veiled copy of ''Music/{{Thriller}}''. The preparation for one scene calls for the zombie dancers (including Alison) to be buried alive, so they can [[RiseFromYourGrave crawl out of their graves]] during the video. However, the director, [[FilmFelons having arranged a series of accidents to draw publicity to a "jinxed" production]], removed the air hose from Alison's plot, hoping to suffocate her. She was [[{{Understatement}} not amused]], and got a confession from him [[WhatAnIdiot in front of the news crew he'd invited for the "accident"]].

* In ''Trigger Mortis'', a villain with a knack for making people choose their fates with a deck of cards has Literature/JamesBond being put into a box and buried alive. Luckily, he managed to sneak a knife with him, which allows him to dig his way out of the slow suffocating death.

** "Jury Duty!" (''Crime [=SuspenStories=]'' #6) is a tale of a man who was hanged and declared dead. The twist was that his neck was broken but his spinal cord was not severed -- so he was still very much alive. He went on to be a complete bastard to the town that had punished him, because it was impossible to prosecute a legally dead man for any crime. However, some of his enemies decided to use that loophole to their advantage as well, because there is nothing in the world wrong with burying a dead man, either....

* Clearly [[MoralEventHorizon the most evil]] thing Comicbook/SpiderMan's enemy Kraven the Hunter did was to inflict this on the hero during the "ComicBook/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.

** This happens in ''Batman R.I.P.'' Interestingly, they plan not to kill Batman, but merely wait for him to be permanently brain-damaged, believing killing Batman's mind is more important than killing his body. [[spoiler:Batman escapes. And he is ''PISSED''.]]

* Some versions of the Bloody Mary legend had Mary as a girl who was buried alive after being mistakenly pronounced dead by a doctor when she took sick and fell into a deep coma, the truth only being revealed with the family being convinced to dig up the grave and finding Mary dead, but with numerous scratches on the inside of the coffin lid and her fingernails bloody from trying to claw her way out of her coffin.
