* This is done in ''WilliamShakespearesRomeoAndJuliet'' to signal that Juliet is beginning to revive. The only problem is, this is happening '''JUST''' [[DrivenToSuicide as Romeo is preparing to drink the poison!]]

* Subverted in ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles II'' with Super Shredder, who collapses a heavy pier onto himself as the Turtles he is trying to take with him escape. The Turtles emerge from the water to look upon the wreckage, only to find Super Shredder's hand emerging from the wreckage to their horror. Raph exclaims "NoOneCouldHaveSurvivedThat!" And then the hand falters and falls limp upon the ruins of the pier, never to rise again, signifying that yes, the Shredder is finally done for.

* Subverted in ''Film/JohnnyMnemonic'' with an insane cyborg who just wouldn't die. He is finally electrocuted to death and everybody's happy. Then the camera shows his hand moving on the ground. The camera pans out, showing the corpse (still quite dead and sizzling) being lifted by a crane.

* Used during Asura's resurrection in ''SoulEater''. The anime gets across the manic twitching, scratching and banging ''perfectly'' as the Kishin, unable to see, struggles out of his prison.

* OnePiece ''loves'' this one. It uses variants all the time, especially explicitly in the anime -- for example, during the final stages of Luffy's final battle with Crocodile.

* On ''Series/TheXFiles'' this trope shows up in season 8's "Dead Alive" to show that Mulder was alive and ''not'' turned into a Super Soldier from TheVirus. The trope turns this moment into a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, since before this episode, Mulder had been [[spoiler: dead for three months]] and abducted/missing for at least four months before that, leaving behind a very distraught Scully behind. The episode ends with Scully clinging anxiously to his hand, a FingerTwitchingRevival, an absolutely heartbreakingly relieved look on Scully's face, and a badly-time joke on Mulder's part.
--->''(Mulder's hand twitches in Scully's, and he wakes up to find Scully sitting next to his hospital bed)''
--->'''Scully (on the verge of bursting into tears):''' Hi.
--->'''Mulder:''' Who are you?
--->''(Scully is devastated until she sees Mulder crack a smile--he's joking.)''
--->'''Scully:''' Oh, God, don't do that to me.
