** Happens to Shadow at the end of ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''. He seemingly dies at the end of the game, falling from space and presumably burning up in the Earth's atmosphere. Come ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'', he's alive and well, albeit suffering from amnesia. [[spoiler: In a somewhat convoluted explanation, ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'' revealed that Eggman somehow managed to save him.]]

* A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xum24z2R7qM video]] filmed by a hunter in Minnesota shows him filming himself after just having shot a deer, which he mentions he shot through the neck. He follows a trail of blood and eventually comes upon the deer, seemingly dead in the field. As he laments not taking a kill shot, he kicks the deer's front leg and ''its eyes snap open''. It suddenly leaps up and runs off as the hunter reels back in fright.

** Arthur Petrelli used his super powers to knock [[spoiler: Hiro Nakamura]] over the edge of a building. When Arthur teleports away, assuming that [[spoiler: Hiro]] is finished, (because NoOneCouldSurviveThat), the camera pans over to the edge of the building, where he seems to be dangling from a flagpole for dear life. Even DangerouslyGenreSavvy {{Evil Overlord}}s make mistakes.

** Much of the confusion over Rasputin's death comes from the fact that his killers didn't exactly know what they were doing. He had been invited to Prince Yusupov's mansion where the conspirators first tried to poison him with laced vodka, however they had no way to judge what was a fatal dose. They then beat and stabbed at him, but a bunch of aristocrats were up against a monk from an order that practiced self-mutilation, so that was ineffective. He was then shot (which depending on the wound, isn't always fatal), rolled into a carpet and dumped in the Neva river. He could have easily lived through all of that only to drown at the very end.
