* ''NYPDBlue'': the Medavoy subplot of one episode involved a Hasidic Jewish girl who had been killed and butchered and partially eaten by animals, leaving not much body left. At the end of the episode after they caught the guy that did it, Medavoy gave the girl's father some crime scene dirt which had some of her blood in it; in the Hassidem(sp) circle you have to bury the ''whole'' body, and Medavoy wanted to give the father as much of the remains as there were available.

* In the [[Film/BatmanTheMovie 1966 film]] based on the Batman series starring Adam West, several goons are dehydrated into dust, to later be rehydrated by the Penguin inside the Batcave. They attack the Dynamic Duo, but the Penguin handled the procedure incorrectly, making them very unstable. When hit, they instantly vanish into antimatter.
-->'''Robin: You mean... [[NeverSayDie they won't]] [[KilledOffForReal be coming back]]!?

This is not ''quite'' NeverFoundTheBody--it's found, all right. More specifically, bits and pieces are found. Usually refers to a very violent death, as either only a few measly fragments of a body is found, or it's been so destroyed you need a mop to clean it up and a bucket (not a body bag) to carry it in.

** In the third book, ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban'', it's said that the largest piece of Peter Pettigrew that was ever found after he was killed by Sirius Black was his middle finger. [[spoiler:He was actually a traitor and cut off the finger to simultaneously fake his death and frame Black for his crimes.]]

* This was sometimes what happened to [[PosthumousCharacter Manfredi and Johnson]], ThoseTwoGuys often mentioned on ''ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' (although they never die the same way twice). On one ocassion they were eaten by flying piranha and what was left was buried with a teaspoon. In another, their remains fit on a manila envelope.

* When Charles Stephens went over Niagra Falls in a barrel, he strapped himself into the barrel, and strapped a anvil to his feet to stabilize himself. When the barrel finally floated to shore, the only sign anyone had been in it was a right arm. That's what went into his grave, as the rest of Mr. Stephens was never found.

* Common for burning tanks, especially when a tank explodes. Occasionally happily subverted, when a crew member managed to escape shortly before the explosion, ended up as an unrecognised wounded in a hospital and was mistakenly reported dead. There was a Soviet [=WW2=] tank commander who had as many as ''five'' empty graves and was still alive by mid-1990s.

* Two instances are mentioned in memoirs of one of the test pilots for Me-163. In the first the fuel tank ruptured into cabin and a pilot [[HollywoodAcid literally melted]] and in second one of the technicians accidentaly mixed both fuel components and it blew up to the point that half of a jawbone was the biggest piece they could find.

* In ''VideoGame/BrothersInArms'', this is the fate of [[spoiler: Doyle]], after encountering a German armored unit. Just as they're about to continue moving through the city of St. Sauveur, a Panzer IV blasts him and he virtually disintegrates, leaving nothing but his weapon and uniform patch.

This is often used for those who die in explosions or burning buildings. Albeit it is typically used implausibly since, with the exception of nuclear explosions, neither usually possess the power to completely atomize a human body.

This is sometimes used to trick the audience or characters into believing that someone is dead who is still alive, as they never found the ''rest'' of the body. Said character may later show up with a prosthesis in the place of the missing body part, or a new outfit or weapon, if all that was found was their mangled accessories.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_George_Haigh John George Haigh]], the Acid Bath Murderer, dissolved his victims in sulphuric acid. All that was found of his last victim was "28 pounds of human body fat, part of a human foot, human gallstones and part of a denture." That was enough to identify her and convict him.
