** The Army of the Dead in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' - traitors cursed to guard the tunnels under the White Mountains (the Paths of the Dead), until they fulfilled their promise to protect Gondor.
** In ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', the evil last king of Númenor, Ar-Pharazôn, set sail with his armies to conquer the holy lands of Valinor from the Valar (god-like angelic demiurges). The Valar prevented the heresy, and possible slaughter of resident elves, by burying him and his armies under a mountain. Supposedly he will only be freed to fight in the final battle with the [[{{Satan}} Dark Lord]].

* The earliest American case of this was probably AndrewJackson. After founding the Democratic party and becoming by far the most powerful President up to that point, he retired to a life of relative obscurity. Naturally this lead people to believe he would one day take the political reins of America to solve some situation, and his death did little to dissuade them. In the months leading up to the civil war many believed Jackson would rise again and resolve the whole situation.

A legendary form of FauxDeath: the King (TheHero) is not really dead, but asleep. Usually, but not necessarily, under a mountain. Islands and a MagicalLand are other possibilities. At any rate, somewhere difficult to access.
