* Mentioned briefly in ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'', when Lord Vetinari orders his secretary to have someone paint over the disturbing Hiroshima-esque shadows on a wall where some bandits got obliterated, so as to quell rumours of Ankh-Morpork being attacked by a dragon. His secretary points out that fresh paint in [[TheCiyNarrows The Shades]] would [[RevealingCoverUp just make it obvious that someone had something to hide]], so the Patrician amends it to having the wall demolished. If his secretary ever ends up getting around to doing this it really doesn't help.

** A less general example: ''World of Darkness: Chicago'' has a vampire named Dumptruck Ned, who specializes in collecting and disposing of bodies, for a fee based on how well-known or connected the corpse was in life. Given the nature of Kindred existence, he never lacks for money. He's staunchly apolitical, but given the sheer amount of secrets and favors owed he's picked up over his career in the dump truck, if he ever ''wanted'' to get involved in the Danse Macabre, he'd have no problem getting into the upper echelons.

* In ''FanFic/OriginStory'' (a ''ComicBook/PowerGirl/Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer crossover) Alex incinerates Ben Wilkinson's body with her heat vision (after Giles murders him as a means to permanently eliminate [[EldritchAbomination Glory]]) to keep the police from looking too closely at what happened at the construction site. Its less the casual way Alex does this -- rather than the fact that she did it in the first place -- that completely ''unnerves'' Buffy, even if Buffy agrees after the fact that it probably was the best thing to do under the circumstances.
