* The {{Creepypasta}} "Psychosis" is about a man who slowly comes to think that everyone has been kidnapped and replaced by some EldritchAbomination, and now they're coming for him. The story doesn't make it 100% clear if he's right or if he's just going insane, but leans pretty heavily towards the latter. At the very end of the story it is revealed that he is in fact wrong, and nobody has been kidnapped and replaced. [[spoiler:{{Puppeteer Parasite}}s don't ''need'' to kidnap anyone]].

** Another victim who deserves a special place is George Caron, the secretary to the Minister of Justice and Eva's earliest known StalkerWithACrush, as it was ''Eva'' who came up with the idea: Diabolik had been arrested, tried and sentenced to death, so Eva, who had just become his lover, managed to swap the two with the intention of [[FakingTheDead a drugged-up Caron getting executed in Diabolik's place]] and Diabolik marrying her with his identity. They would have got away with it, had [[SympatheticInspectorAntagonist Ginko]], [[ProperlyParanoid who was witnessing the execution to make sure Diabolik died]], not noticed that 'Diabolik' was acting as a drugged person and realized the switch just as the executor released the guillotine's blade...
