* The ''TabletopGame/{{Clue}}'' VCR game had it that Mr. Boddy prepared two extra wills and hid them in case his first one is destroyed. It is and so is the first replacement they find. Strangely, all three wills have different conditions for paying off: the first one requires that [[{{Tontine}} the group kill each other off]], the second is a more normal will with his fortune being divided among his friends, and the third pays the fortune to the one who can dig up the most secrets on the others.

* In the ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'' short story "The Doctor's Case" by Creator/StephenKing, the deceased was murdered because he had written a new will - [[PassedOverInheritance which disinherited his long-suffering family in favor of a pet shelter]] - something he did purely out of spite. [[spoiler:Holmes and Lestrange decide that between the abuse the man's family had gone through and the fact that he would have died within the year anyway, they can let the fact that they killed the man and destroyed the new will slide, and conceal the evidence.]]
