* The British SitCom ''Series/TwoPointFourChildren'' implied this with the mysterious man on the motorcycle who showed up randomly when Bill needed help. Considering [[MagicalRealism the nature of that show]], it wasn't actually that odd.

* 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 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.
