In fiction, this practically never occurs. Therefore, we have a case of No Dead Body Poops, where the death scene is almost always much much ''much'' less nasty than it could be in real life. This is not surprising, given that most people are not aware someone dying can be a [[{{Pun}} crapshoot]]. It is also somewhat undignified - it really wouldn't do for TheLancer's HeroicSacrifice to end with a fart noise and a bad smell, would it?

* Referenced in the ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' manga when [[PsychoForHire Jin-e]] tries to kill [[TheChick Kaoru]] by paralyzing her lungs with his illusory stare. He then tells Kenshin about how asphyxiation is an "ugly way to go", mentioning that Kaoru will salivate and lose control of her bladder and bowels, urinating and defecating as she dies.

* According to church historians, Arius, of the Arian Heresy (against which the famous Council of Nicaea was convened and the Nicene Creed written) fame, died after literally shitting out most of his intestines and a bit of his liver.
--> As [he approached the Constantine’s Forum, a terror arising from the remorse of conscience seized Arius, and with the terror a violent relaxation of the bowels: he therefore enquired whether there was a convenient place near, and being directed to the back of Constantine’s Forum, he hastened thither. Soon after a faintness came over him, and together with the evacuations his bowels protruded, followed by a copious hemorrhage, and the descent of the smaller intestines: moreover portions of his spleen and liver were brought off in the effusion of blood, so that he almost immediately died. The scene of this catastrophe still is shown at Constantinople, as I have said, behind the shambles in the colonnade: and by persons going by pointing the finger at the place, there is a perpetual remembrance preserved of this extraordinary kind of death.

* ''[[http://www.peterbeagle.com/works/shorts/two_hearts.htm Two Hearts]]'', a sequel to Literature/TheLastUnicorn by Peter S. Beagle, has a scene towards the end where [[spoiler: King Lir is nearly ripped in half by the griffin. The narrator notes that there is "blood, and worse", and when Lir speaks to the others while dying, he too notes the smell and suspects he wet himself. Notably, the griffin did not suffer the same, although its "lion half" is dead.]]

** The season 4 finale, "The Children", alters one of the most memorable death scenes in the series. [[spoiler: In the books, Tywin Lannister empties his bowels when he's shot with a crossbow bolt. The chapter ends with a morbidly funny twist on the joke that Tywin is so rich he shits gold. But the show tidies his death up somewhat and avoids any direct implication he used the privy at his moment of death, probably because [[ToiletHumour a big ol' fart noise]] would have [[{{Narm}} completely destroyed]] the tense, dramatic mood of the scene.]]

* ''Series/{{Community}}'' - Abed relates a story to Jeff about getting to be a background extra on ''CougarTown'', where he immerses himself so thoroughly into the character he'd created internally that when the shot was over, so was his character's life. He metaphorically died, collapsing and evacuating his bowels. [[spoiler: Or maybe he made it all up.]]

* On ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'', Earl throws a funeral for a young man he'd accidentally kidnapped in an earlier episode, who unfortunately died in a MurphysBed incident before Earl could make it up to him. Since this young man didn't really have any nice clothes, Joy sold Earl the purple tuxedo that Darnell wore when he married her. At the funeral, Darnell is less than pleased to see his beloved purple tux on the deceased, and is especially concerned that the deceased might be ''farting'' in it. Earl offers to have it dry-cleaned, but Darnell can't allow it because the purple dye is illegal.

** Also, in the Kyoto Arc, a couple is hanged in Shingetsu Village. A mess is seen underneath them, implying that this trope was ''very'' much averted.

* In the ''WebOriginal/DragonBallZAbridged'' special ''Bardock: The Father of Goku'', this is averted quite hard. Bardock is buried in a pile of his dead teammates and exclaims "Oh god, it's true! You really do soil yourself when you die!" and later on, when he's trying to warn all the Saiyans, one of them points out that he still smells of feces.

* A rather infamous fan video for ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' crossed over with ''HidamariSketch'', known as ''Chidamari Sketch'', showed this happening to Mami/Miyako. Note that this did '''not''' take place in the actual episode... but many confused viewers believe it did.
