** Combined with BequeathedPower in ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' with [[spoiler:Yuto]] passing his soul, his SuperpoweredEvilSide, and his ability to XYZ summon onto [[spoiler:Yuya]] by giving him his most powerful and magical card upon dying.

It's unclear right now if [[spoiler:Yuto]] can ever be revived since his soul is still around, but the scene where this transaction occurs plays out like an example of this trope.

The fake bird was made of lead. Both were covered with enamel.
* ''Film/TheMalteseFalcon'' hits the viewer hard with this trope. Everyone is after the titular bird (which is insanely valuable PirateBooty but has been covered in lead to hide the value). For the first half of the movie the police (who don't know about the bird) suspect the main character of unrelated murders ([[spoiler:which were actually committed by the BigBad while looking for the bird]]). Then, about forty minutes into the film, the bird has only been discussed up until now and nobody knows where the thing actually is or who's hiding it. The body count is mounting and people start saying the bird might be cursed because of all of the people who get the bird die right afterward. Then [[spoiler:TheGhost]] suddenly bursts into the room, riddled with gunshots, carrying the bird, then dies at the protagonist's feet without any explanation. Now the main character not only has the statue that a bunch of violent people are after but also has ''yet another dead body'' to explain to the police, [[spoiler:this time of a guy he's been going around town asking people about]]. This plot is a weird case of ImDyingPleaseTakeMyMacGuffin, PirateBooty, a possible ArtifactOfDoom, a sort of ArtifactOfAttraction (since the bird looks worthless), and a ClingyMacGuffin ([[spoiler:since he can't let anyone know about the bird]]) all at the same time. [[spoiler:The rest of the movie involves him trying to exonerate himself without letting anyone (especially the police, who would just decide he'd killed everyone with the bird as his motive) find out he has the statue.]]

* The somewhat-obscure MarvelComics hero The Torpedo (see RomSpaceKnight and ComicBook/NewWarriors) got his [[PowerArmor supercostume]] from the dying scientist who had made it for an evil organization but then changed his mind... while he was ''waiting for an elevator''. Then he just decided to ''[[TooDumbToLive put it on]]'' right then and there, which got him into a fight with Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}, who had been pursuing the scientist moments before!
