** Percy writes a letter to Vox Machina in case of his death, and Vex discovers it on his body when he dies, but the group doesn't read it until after his resurrection.
** Scanlan gives a letter to Pike for her to read in case of his death, but she opens and reads it as soon as he can't see her. She uses its contents ([[HeartwarmingMoments a request for her to take care of Kaylie]]) to revive him after his death.

* The ''Anime/YuGiOh'' anime has one in the Doma filler saga, where Pegasus speaks to the gang as a projection after he has his soul stolen. Even if it wasn't filler, it wouldn't have been possible because Pegasus died in the manga.
** That's the thing though, he didn't die in the anime, the anime and manga are separate continuities. Pegasus even shows up in the GX anime, alive and well.

* Guatemalan attorney [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxZptUp9a44 Rodrigo Rosenberg]]. It's understandable how it ended up in the right hands: he made it for the entire country and was uploaded to Website/YouTube. This could be counted as a subversion; the following UN investigation ultimately concluded that Mr. Rosenberg had arranged for his own murder.
