* Late into ''Manga/OyasumiPunpun'' we learn that Shimizu's mom has been dead since long before the manga started. She was hit by a car on his first day of kindergarten. Shimizu is an immature, [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} imaginative]] and somewhat delusional boy who acts like she's still alive even into his 20s. We only ever saw [[TheFaceless his moms hand]], never her body.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', Eren spends five years wondering about his DisappearedDad, who vanished after leaving him with cryptic instructions to retrieve something from their basement. Grisha Yeager's disappearance remained a major mystery in-series and for the fans, up until Eren learns the truth. His father didn't disappear....he was EatenAlive after turning Eren into a Titan, in order to pass the {{McGuffin}} on to him.

* In the ''Radio/TorchwoodTheLostFiles'' radio play "The House of the Dead", Ianto is revealed as having been dead the whole time. The original set up made it seem as if the events were taking place after the deaths of Tosh and Owen but before Ianto's death. The ending reveals that it actually took place after the 4-5-6 incident.
* [[http://cestlavietheatre.ca/ C'est La Vie Theatre]]'s ''Bestiary'' is a compilation of three stories, all of which end with the narrator's death. The first one -- the story of Jonah, from the whale's perspective -- treats it as this type of twist, when it turns out that the whale is now a ghost, while the second story is the Hartlepool Monkey's ApocalypticLog, and the third is Laika the dog telling her story just as she runs out of oxygen in space.
* In ''AudioPlay/StrikersSoundStageX'', apparent ArcVillain Toredia Graze is eventually revealed to have died a long time ago, with the true instigator of the incident being a loyal DragonAscendant that decided to continue his cause.
* The main character in Lucille Fletcher's The Hitch-Hiker, originally performed as an episode of "The Orson Welles Show" in 1941 and rebroadcast for decades thereafter.

* In Creator/AlanMoore's version, this happens to Alec Holland in ''Comicbook/SwampThing'' - Comicbook/SwampThing was actually a totally non-human plant elemental which had arisen from Holland's dying body, and possessed his memories.
* ''Comicbook/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|Mirage}}'', Mirage continuity: In the Rat King's first appearance, he was revealed to apparently still be alive after his battle with the turtles in an abandoned factory. Later on, when an injured Splinter is trapped in the same factory, The Rat King appears periodically before him and acts as the rat's spiritual guide. Two months later, after Splinter heals enough to leave, he finds The Rat King's rag-covered skeleton.

* In ''Comicbook/TheSavageDragon'', there was a Doctor Doom {{Expy}} named Dreadnaught. He was an armored villain that was ruling over an entire country. After his initial fight, it was revealed that he had been dead for years and his armor was running without him.
* In ''Comicbook/NthManTheUltimateNinja'', it is ultimately revealed that the protagonist is an imperfect copy created by a psychopathic RealityWarper after the original was killed in an accident. This imperfection is why the present-day character is willing to kill as a ninja assassin, despite being an [[IncorruptiblePurePureness incorruptible pacifist]] in his youth.

His corpse is actually [[PeoplePuppets being used as a puppet by the spirit of the Amulet]]. And again, in The Last Council, it's revealed that Ronin, Pierce, and all the other Academy students bar Max and Emily are dead, having been nothing more than reanimated statues that took on the appearances of people who died.
* This is the twist at the end of ''Comicbook/DeathOfX'': [[spoiler: Comicbook/{{Cyclops}} died very early on, and the "Cyclops" we've been following throughout most of the story is merely a psychic illusion created by Comicbook/EmmaFrost]].

* In ''[[Fanfic/Gensokyo20XX Gensokyo 20XXV]], Reimu asks this is as a question in relation to An, who hasn't been seen since chapter 77, which would mean what memories they have her were actually ones born of grief. At the same time, she also touched upon the alternative in that they could have seen her but didn't recognize her as An and probably thought she was someone else. It turns out she was right, as it was later confirmed in chapter 96 that An did pass away but their love for her and grief and denial of her death is what called her back.

* The part of ''Allegro non Troppo'' (known as the "Italian answer to ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''" and not to be confused with "Ma Allegro non Troppo") called "Valse Triste" follows a scrawny cat/kitten wandering through the ruined shell of a city house, showing its memories of how it was once the pet of the family who lived there. Then, just before we hear the crane with the wrecking ball approaching the house to knock it down, the cat suddenly vanishes, accompanied by a purple outline glow - it was already dead. Watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8Oc_J1Lu-o here]] (the film is presented as a comedy-drama and the clip starts with a few seconds of comedy).
