** One argument about [[spoiler: Lelouch]] is that [[spoiler: despite the ReallyDeadMontage, part of what makes the epilogue ambiguous and/or open-ended is that it never explains anything about him beyond that like what happened with the body afterward]]. The upcoming Season 3 is ''definitely'' going to have to provide some answers about this since [[spoiler: Lelouch is confirmed to be alive.]]

* Creator/JackMcDevitt's ''Eternity Road'' initially looks like it's heading for an EverybodyLives ending, so this trope is used after the first [[MoodWhiplash sudden death during a lighthearted section]]. The second such death . . . not so much.

* [[spoiler:Alistair Drummond]] in the second book of ''The Rampart Worlds''. The protagonist, Asahel Frost, worries occasionally about whether he's actually dead. [[spoiler:And then the guy turns out to be alive enough to steal Asa's identity while working with villainous aliens. When he's eventually killed off, the body is immediately in evidence, although mauled by a wolverine.]]

* Discussed in ''ComicBook/ExMachina'', a series about Mitchell Hundred, a retired superhero turned Mayor of New York. His "mentor" is constantly on the lookout for Jack Pherson, the closest thing to a true supervillain they ever faced, even though Pherson was last seen in an exploding building. While he'd be dead right in a straightforward superhero comic, in this one he just gets written off. His arguments ring even more hollow when it turns out they found ''several pieces'' of Pherson, just not his head.

* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'': [[spoiler: Ra's and Talia al Ghul]] are ''both'' killed onscreen, but both of their bodies vanish shortly after. [[spoiler:Given that the League of Assassins is in the area, resurrection seems possibly]].
** In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' DLC "The Season of Infamy", we see the conclusion of this in the "Shadow War" episode. [[spoiler: Ra's has been resurrected by the League, and Batman eve mentions that his body wasn't recovered from Arkham City. Talia meanwhile has a morgue drawer with her name on, the door is open and there's no body inside...]]

* One of the earliest examples recorded in history: [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boudica Boudica]], a queen of the Iceni, an Iron Age Celtic Briton tribe who inhabited what is now eastern England. For years, the Romans had been violently annexing the lands of the native Brittonic tribes, which they were obviously none too pleased about. Another problem was that Roman society was ''far'' more viscerally patriarchal that Celtic society - after the death of Boudica's husband, the Romans refused to allow her daughters to succeed him, and stole away their lands. When she questioned this, she was punished with a severe flogging, and her daughters were brutally and publicly gang raped. Enraged, she spearheaded the last major revolt against the Romans in Britain, which sadly failed in the end. She escaped capture, and is said to have died shortly thereafter, allegedly by drinking poison, though her body was never found. Granted, though, there is no surviving native British literature from this era - all of the details of these events come from Roman sources, who, of course, absolutely despised the Celts, so the accuracy of their writings is open for debate.

** ''Shattered Sky'' in particular seems to [[UpToEleven love]] this trope. [[spoiler:Dawnpelt, Needletail, Onestar, and [[BigBad Darktail]]]] are just the most notable examples of this. It's left ambiguous what happened to [[spoiler:Dawnpelt and the other [=ShadowClan=] cats,]] while although the other three mentioned ''appear'' to be killed, it still happens offscreen and their bodies are never found. The blurb for ''River of Fire'' also implies that [[spoiler:Darktail]] will return once more.
