** It later happens ''much'' more seriously in one of the later books; one of the Wraiths infiltrating ''Iron Fist'' under the guise of a Stormtrooper is shot and killed while attempting to free some of Zsinj's science experiments single-handedly. Zsinj then has him rigged up in such a way as he can be marched before the ''other'' Wraiths (who are masquerading as pirates in his employ) and orders them to kill him as a test of loyalty. The ruse is given away when one of the Wraiths notes the poorly-concealed blast mark in their comrade's armor, tipping him off that he's already dead.

* In the movie version of "Film/TheUntouchables," the team are trying to interrogate a mobster to no effect. Irish cop Malone goes outside to grab the body of a gangster killed in a shoot-out and pops him up against the window in front of the suspect's sight, hiding the man's bullet wound. He then berates the corpse as if interrogating him, pushing a gun to his head and finally shooting it. Naturally, the terrified mobster agrees to tell anything he knows.

* In Puccini's opera ''Gianni Schicchi'', a comedy that revolves around a {{Dead Person Impersonation}}, the real Buoso Donati's corpse is usually just hidden away. But Woody Allen's 2008 Los Angeles Opera production had the characters disguise the corpse as a panhandler and seat it on the doorstep of the house instead and as the doctor and notary came and went from the house, they both obliviously gave it money!

* In [[UsefulNotes/{{Scotland}} Georgian Scotland]], three eager medical students went GraveRobbing to obtain a subject for their anatomy lecturer. In those days, body snatching was something greatly feared by the public, and booby traps were often used to prevent the theft of their loved ones' corpses. As it happened, one of the trio accidentally set off one of these devices, a spring gun. He was killed instantly. Knowing they could not leave him there for fear of discovery, his two companions decided that they would carry him home. After cleaning the body up a bit, one of them tied his left ankle to the dead boy's right, while the other tied his right ankle to the dead boy's left. They propped him up between them, and went on their way. Posing as a group of drunks, they aroused no suspicion. Upon arrival at the room of the dead boy, they placed him on the bed and put one of his own guns beside him. The next day when he was discovered, it was believed that he killed himself.
