* One episode of ''NightCourt'' had this when a middle-aged man was held for examination when he claimed to be Death. After the usual {{Aesop}}, he was released and people resumed dying.

* That Creator/KevinSmith film ''Film/Dogma'' says that God often assumes a human form [[spoiler:so He can go to play skeeball]]. We don't find out about this until later on, but it's one of these excursions that sets up the plot.

* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', there's a distinction made between a concept not being ''needed'' and simply being removed completely, and this has been showed very clearly when it comes to Mortis, the AnthropomorphicPersonification of Death:
** During the Lost Age, ponies were TheAgeless and death was ''extremely'' rare, due to a wish spell that turned the world into an Utopia. As a result, Mortis basically had a long vacation the entire time because they didn't ''need'' him. He wasn't complaining. Sadly this ended due to a RealityBreakingParadox.
** During the Rumors Arc, Pandora questions if Mortis could invoke this trope so no pony dies from Discord's GodzillaThreshold crossing endgame (which had the Pantheon working ''very'' hard to rescue everyone). Mortis defies this trope because [[AndIMustScream it'd only mean ponies won't die, not that they can't suffer fatal circumstances, meaning even being burned to ash would just leave them trapped in their body and unable to die]]. Pandora agrees with him.

* In the fourth season of ''[[WesternAnimation/LesShadoks The Shadoks]]'', the Shadoks have discovered that their world is going to get destroyed in the near future, and they can't do much to stop it. So, to avoid being killed in the catastrophe, they decide to arrest the Grim Reaper [[MindScrew and sentence him to death]]. However, the Shadoks are [[VillainProtagonist so mean]] that their main distraction is to kill and torture each other. The Grim Reaper reminds them of that, and gets away.[[note]] In the end, the apocalypse does happen but the Shadoks eventually find another world to live in, though not as convenient as the one they had.

** This is related to a folktale in which Jack traps the Devil, rather than death. Sometimes he traps him up a tree by planting crosses or carving a cross. Sometimes he tricks him into turning into a coin, which is then placed in a wallet next to a cross. Either way, Jack ends up wandering the world, carrying one of the embers of hell with him to light his way: Jack of the Lantern. Similarly, you can end up with Will of the Wisp. Jack o'Lantern was originally, fable notwithstanding, just a term for a night watchman, a guy with a lantern.
