-->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).

* 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.]]

* Mentioned in a backstory blog for ''The Empress Returns'' (sequel to ''Fanfic/TheGodEmpressOfPonyking''); some time after the Battle for Terra, Commissar Yarrik caught his old rival Ghazkhull Thraka on an unknown ice world. Yarrik eventually tackled the ork warlord into a crevasse, never to be seen again. Imperial records say Yarrik won, but the orks believe that the two are still fighting down there, and will do so until the end of time.

* ''Webcomic/AwkwardZombie'' invokes the trope, [[http://awkwardzombie.com/index.php?page=0&comic=030716 lampooning a quirk in]] ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' where destroying a vehicle ''technically'' doesn't count as killing its occupant, even if NoOneCouldSurviveThat:
-->'''Big Boss:''' ''(after [[StuffBlowingUp blowing up a helicopter with a rocket launcher]])'' Kaz, I said ''non''-lethal!\\
'''Miller:''' Do you see the pilot's body?\\
'''Big Boss:''' No, just smashed-up helicopter parts. It's pretty bad.\\
'''Miller:''' [[LoopholeAbuse How can you prove anyone died if you don't see a body?]]

* In ''VideoGame/SaintsRow3'' this occurs when [[spoiler:Johnny Gat]] is presumed dead, implied he is shot by [[spoiler:Phillip Loren]] at the beginning of the game. However in ''Videogame/SaintsRowIV'' we learn that he was really [[spoiler:Abducted by Zinyak]]

* ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'':
** The animatronics kill night guards by forcefully stuffing them inside sharp and dangerous animatronic suits, essentially shredding their body (besides the eyeballs and teeth), allowing [[CorruptCorporateExecutive the management]] to simply sweep any blood and guts under the carpet and file a missing person report afterwards (as per stated company policy) to cover their rears from legal repurcussions. [[spoiler:Phone Guy is even implied to have met his end this way.]]
** Through hidden posters that randomly show up, you learn that [[spoiler:five children disappeared at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza one day and no bodies, alive or dead, were found. However, no-one ever seems to have checked inside the suits, as some time afterwards the animatronics began to smell bad, leak blood and mucus, and get compared to rotting carcasses..]]
