* The WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes ''The Old Grey Hare'' takes us into the far distant future year of 2000 where a decrepit old Bugs and Elmer are still playing hunter and prey. As usual, Bugs puts on a fake dying scene and, having dug his own grave, stands in it as he exchanges tearful goodbyes with Elmer, manages to switch places with him, and quickly shovels the dirt over him, laughing manically. Then, just to rub it in a bit more, he pops into the ground and gives Elmer a big kiss on the face and a burning stick of dynamite!

* ''Wentworth'':
** The fate given to [[spoiler: Joan]]. A rare example dished out by a heroic character, though given this series' use of GreyAndGrayMorality, precisely how heroic they are generally depends on the episode.

* Taken UpToEleven in ''Film/{{The Mummy|2017}}''. Ahmanet's elaborate and fancy "tomb" is, in fact, a TailorMadePrison, where she is interred as punishment for murder. Given her dark powers, quite a ''lot'' of effort is made into building it in order to hold her. (And naturally, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero the actions of the movie's protagonists result in her escaping]].)

* "One Summer Night" by Creator/AmbroseBierce involves a man who's been Buried Alive (albeit pretty chill about it), a couple of students from a nearby medical college, and the cemetery keeper they've hired to dig up corpses for them to experiment on...

* The protagonist of the Creator/StephenKing story ''Dolan's Cadillac'' (found in ''Literature/NightmaresAndDreamscapes'') does this to the title character as revenge for the murder of the protagonist's wife. Directly inspired by Poe's "Literature/TheCaskOfAmontillado", to the point that the antagonist breaks down screaming "For the love of God!", which the protagonist then quietly repeats. Dolan, however, is ''far'' more deserving of his fate than Fortunato.

* The short story ''The Extension'' dealt with a man who was so afraid of being Buried Alive that his funeral arrangements include a phone line to his crypt in case the coroner misdiagnosed him. His worst fear comes true, and the whole story has him desperately calling everyone, trying in vain to convince them that he's NotQuiteDead. Ultimately, [[spoiler:FridgeLogic hits and he asks the operator how long they'll keep the line connected, and is assured the service will remain indefinitely. He realises this is probably his personal Hell, but also that he's ''got'' to keep calling and trying to get out...]]
