* Sometimes happen in ''ComicBook/{{Diabolik}}''. Usually it's because the titular VillainProtagonist has [[FakingTheDead faked his death]] ''again'' convincingly enough to convince the authorities he's in fact dead (and [[GenreSavvy they know he's prone to this]], it takes quite some work. In one occasion he even had to fool a ''DNA test''...), but on some occasion it's because he's helping someone by making them appear dead.

* ''Series/HermansHead''. Herman finds himself interested in the daughter of his insane boss Mr Crawford. She points out that she's married but her husband mysteriously disappeared and is legally dead unless he turns up within the next few years. Crawford hefts his hunting shotgun meaningfully and tells her not to worry, [[NeverFoundTheBody as he won't be showing up.]]

* Occasionally in the US, people can be [[https://faq.ssa.gov/link/portal/34011/34019/Article/4120/What-should-I-do-if-I-am-incorrectly-listed-as-deceased-in-Social-Security-s-records accidentally declared dead]] usually due to a Social Security mix-up. Since SS numbers are used by the government and other groups (like insurance, banks, credit cards) to identify a person, being declared dead is a major hassle to undo.

** Speaking of which, said EvilOverlord is the result of all three sons of the Wulfenbach family dying in a lab accident, getting stitched back together, and reanimated, which means he's probably not even human in a legal sense, and definitely isn't allowed to rule. He also has the most guns.

** Later volumes expanded on the "briefly" part: if the victim lives, but had to be revived by [[MadScientist an Igor]], it still counts as Murder, rather than Attempted Murder.

(However, in ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'' this trope doesn't actually apply to Nutt, because he was brought back by [[OurOrcsAreDifferent his orc biology]] not the Igor.)
