* ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' absolutely ''loves'' this trope. One scenario, ''Dead Man Stomp'', involves a musician who finds out his trumpet, given to him by [[DealWithTheDevil Nyarlathotep]] [[DevilInDisguise masquerading as a famous Jazz musician]], can raise the dead. Said man has recently lost his girlfriend. Guess what he tries to do the second [[InsanityMakesYouEvil he goes mad...]]

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', at first it appears that the entire plot [[MindScrew apparently]] revolves around Kinzo trying to revive his dead mistress... who also happens to be a 1000 year-old SealedEvilInACan. KillEmAll ensues. [[spoiler:But then it's revealed that Kinzo has been dead for over a year before the story begins, meaning he wasn't involved in any of the murders. And although he did have a dead mistress whom he loved dearly, she was not 1000 years old nor SealedEvilInACan.]]
