* Invoked in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''. At the end of one disc, Squall is impaled on an ice lance by Edea and falls off a parade float, and the rest of the party are unable to recover his body. This is because the next disc opens with Squall having been ''captured'', and he's sitting in a Galbadian prison. Might have been intended to trick the players into thinking [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt Square Would Really Do It]], by evoking [[ItWasHisSled another]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII main character]] who was ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice at the end of a disc [[PlotlineDeath and didn't fare so well]].

* Happens in the past to [[spoiler: kyousuke's elder brother KyoHei aka "Maou"]] in [[GSenjouNoMaou The Devil on G-String]] whereby his body was never found in the London bombings, thus was presumed dead by the world prior to events of the game.

-->General Woundwort's body was never found. It could be that he still lives his fierce life somewhere else, but from that day on, mother rabbits would tell their kittens that if they did not do as they were told, the General would get them. Such was Woundwort's monument, and perhaps it would not have displeased him.

* In an indirect way in ''Film/TheHungerGamesMockingjayPart2''. When Katniss is shot during the liberation of District 2, Snow knows she survived because the resistance doesn't martyr her on the spot.

* Happens with regularity in ''ComicBook/{{Diabolik}}'' whenever the titular VillainProtagonist wants to [[FakingTheDead fake his death]]. Problem is, you can't be sure he's dead even when you ''do'' have a body: Diabolik has occasionally left behind someone else's body in such a situation it would be mistaken for his, in one occasion fooling even ''DNA tests'' (he had swapped the sample that was to be tested), and not even seeing him being shot ''and'' checking the body is a guarantee of him dying (when that happened the guy who checked the body was an accomplice).

* In ''Literature/HopeLeslie'', this happens to [[spoiler:Sir Philip]], which the Puritans attribute to Satan taking the body of his servant back.

* Recurs in ''Series/MurdochMysteries'':
** In the Season 3 finale, after a chase and explosion, the accomplice's body is found, but not that of [[spoiler:Sally Pendrick]]. As of yet this has had no effect on the story, as Season 4 returned to the self-contained episodes format.
** In "Murdoch in Toyland", after managing to [[FakingTheDead escape his own hanging]], attempting a psychologically disturbing plan of revenge and getting caught by Murdoch again, the police wagon carrying [[spoiler:James Gillies]] back to prison plunges over a bridge into a river. While the bodies of the driver and the guard are found, [[spoiler:Gillies']] is not.
** [[spoiler:The same character]] dives into another river at the end of "Midnight Train to Kingston". Murdoch is particularly (and understandably) anxious about the lack of a corpse. [[spoiler:They find the body seven episodes later.]]
