Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/{{Ironclaw}}'' has a necromancy spell for when you simply want to talk to a corpse. Though, it has the same unique CriticalFailure condition as every other spell in the school so there's a small chance of the stiff jumping up and attempting to strangle you.

The Doctor then provokes Sabbath's henchwoman into fatally stabbing him in order to travel to the realm of the dead to speak with the man, in a scene reminiscent of [[Myth/MesopotamianMythology Inanna's journey to the Underworld]].

** The arrest of Yanni Yogi (from the [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney first game]]) is based on testimony from a spirit medium channeling the murder victim.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': After people die some mental traces still linger for a while, so Psi-Judges often probe the minds of corpses to investigate the circumstances of their deaths. Judge Anderson is even introduced using this on the charred skeleton of Judge Death (though in that case it isn't so much "dead", but [[BodySurf "left for better digs"]]).

** Part of ''VisualNovel/GyakutenSaiban6''[='s=] court gameplay involves channeling the recently deceased in order to play back what they saw in the moments before they died in a large pool of water at the center of the courtroom. It is what the kingdom of Kurain does in lieu of letting defense attorneys argue on behalf of the accused (which apparently they outlawed sometime prior to the game so they could move to the theocratic court system). Phoenix's job is to look through this "footage" and figure out what doesn't jive with the facts.
