* ''Series/TheXFiles''. Played for dark laughs when a victim has their head shoved into liquid nitrogen and is then [[LiterallyShatteredLives thrown to the ground]]. The chalk outline of the body is perfectly normal until it gets to the head... which is a bunch of little dots.

** Monty Burns' chalk outline plays an integral part in solving ''TheSimpsons'' mystery of Who Shot Mr. Burns. More justified than most examples in that he didn't actually die, they presumably drew it ''after'' he was taken away by medics, and he was actually shot in a different location, meaning they'd be less worried about evidence contamination.

* Kelly's stage in ''VideoGame/BustAGroove 2'' is a crime scene in the middle of a dark city, complete with a chalk outline of a body. What's notable about this is that, if you line up all the bars in the Groove Meter, the chalk outline ''comes to life and starts dancing''.
