** The Iron Hands have an odd variation of this. Their primarch, Ferrus Manus, was confirmed killed in the Drop Site Massacre on Istvaan, and Horus was even presented with his severed head, but the Iron Hands [[HesJustHiding insist that their primarch escaped somehow]].

** This is also the set up to [[spoiler: ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. The Link in this game unsuccessfully first battled Ganon 100 years ago, and was left mortally wounded. He was then taken to the Shrine of Resurrection on the Great Plateau so slowly he could regenerate over the course of a century, awakening anew at the start of the game to try once again to save Hyrule.]]

* In ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'' (AlternateContinuity to ''Film/TronLegacy''), Programs have this idea about Tron himself. He vanished shortly after his victory over Master Control, and they believe that he would return in the system's darkest cycle. In ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'' itself, it's played a bit sideways; at best, the game's protagonist could be called a half-brother (he's the human son of Alan and Lora). But it's played completely straight with the ''Killer App'' sequel where Alan ''did'' put Tron in stasis after all, and sends him out with modern upgrades to fight a menace to Encom.

* The earliest American case of this was probably UsefulNotes/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.

** In much the same way, the Arthur legend is still very popular in many [[UsefulNotes/TheCommonwealthOfNations Commonwealth]] Realms, particularly the ones where the Royal Family still reigns (UsefulNotes/{{Canada}}, UsefulNotes/{{Australia}}, and UsefulNotes/NewZealand).

* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}:'' Most versions of Primus, the god of Transformers, are asleep, and have been for several billion years, sworn only to revive when "all are one". So, given the nature of Transformers, he's not waking up any time soon. Usually it takes something pretty drastic to get Primus directly involved (like, say, shooting him in the face). Of course, there is a pretty good reason for his long nap: If he wakes up, Unicron will instantly know where he is and make a beeline straight for him. And Primus has a pretty bad track record with regards to fighting his nemesis...
