In another strip, Turnkey tells spook that a hoagie about twenty feet long is for "Dirty Dirk", who hangs tomorrow, although the sandwich will [[GenreSavvy clearly take a week to eat.]]

* In the second of Creator/GKChesterton's ''Literature/FatherBrown'' stories, a last request features as a stage setting; Father Brown, having attended a dying waiter at a restaurant, asks the proprietor if there's a place where he can do something the dead man asked. (It's the place, rather than the request, that the subsequent mystery turns on.)

If you are dying very slowly, as of cancer, you can, in fact, make it a period before death; for instance, at the last visit to the hospital, even if you die a week later. Requests made by ghosts and other undead qualify only if undeath is ending quickly.

* In ''The Green King'', the king promises the dying queen, on her request, not to refuse their daughter what she asks for. All the WickedStepmother has to do to get the king to marry her is persuade the daughter to ask.
* In ''Literature/TheBlackThiefAndTheKnightOfTheGlen'', the queen persuades the king to promise to protect her sons by any WickedStepmother by raising them in a tower. The stepmother manages to talk him into bringing them back.
-->''I am now going to leave you, and as you are young and in your prime, of course after my death you will marry again. Now all the request I ask of you is that you will build a tower in an island in the sea, wherein you will keep your three sons until they are come of age and fit to do for themselves; so that they may not be under the power or jurisdiction of any other woman. Neglect not to give them education suitable to their birth, and let them be trained up to every exercise and pastime requisite for king's sons to learn. This is all I have to say, so farewell.''
* In an Icelandic fairy tale, the queen asks the king to promise to marry a great princess, someone accustomed to courts, so she would not have her head turned by becoming queen. Unfortunately, when the king's men seek a new bride for him, they are taken in by a woman's claim to be a princess in exile.
