* ViktorSuvorov claims that when he was recruited into the GRU, he was shown a film of [[ResignationsNotAccepted this being done to a traitor]]. This is often presumed to be GRU Colonel Oleg Penkovsky, who was discovered passing secrets to the CIA, but Suvorov doesn't specify.
* Unintentional example, but some accounts of Rasputin's death say he was only in a deep coma when he was taken to the crematorium. He allegedly sat up during the procedure, though that may have simply been an involuntary response caused by the fire destroying the ligaments in his legs.
** This is certainly legend. Rasputin was interred in the normal Orthodox Christian way after his death 21 December 1916. Unfortunately, his grave had become a place of worship (he was considered a martyr), and after the collapse of the Czarist regime, the new regime wanted to get rid of his earthly remains to prevent him becoming a popular saint. His corpse and casket were incinerated 11 March 1917 in a St. Petersburg power plant.
