* In "Literature/TheMonkeysPaw" (by W. W. Jacobs) a series of LiteralGenie moments culminate with the protagonist's child being wished back from the dead after an earlier wish (for a sum of cash) resulted in his death (for which the parents received the exact sum wished for as an insurance payout). The mom is in denial that their son may [[CameBackWrong come back wrong]], but the dad is GenreSavvy enough to use the last wish to put him back in his grave before he even makes it back to the house.

* A brief attempt at this was made in ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' when [[spoiler:Anthony Carver made a DealWithTheDevil to try to resurrect his dead wife Surma. Unfortunately for Anthony, [[HalfHumanHybrid Surma is part fire elemental]], meaning that when she died her soul passed to their daughter Antimony. The attempt to resurrect Surma nearly killed Annie as a result, and Anthony has seemingly abandoned his attempts to get his wife back.]]

* When ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' villain [[PsychicPowers Quentin Quire]] came back to life the first time, the first and only thing he did was dig up the body of his crush, Sophie Cuckoo, and seek out the Phoenix to bring her back as well. She woke up, took one look at him, and immediately dropped dead again out of spite, while her sisters telepathically mocked him.
