* 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.

* An episode of ''Series/{{Flash Gordon|2007}}'' had a scene where the characters had to find a way to bring an alien soldier's corpse to the dimensional rift he had come from in order to properly dispose of the body.

** Another episode of the series had a complete maniac of a Civil War re-enactor (and quite the perfect example of an AssholeVictim otherwise) [[UndignifiedDeath dying of an accident regarding his corset and it screwing up his organs' function]] and his secretary/re-enactor aide-de-camp taking the corpse and putting it on a railroad track as a train came closer in a way that would have him looking like he was naturally standing up (which made the train's engineer think that it was some kind of suicidal maniac until the investigators told him otherwise) because he liked to tell a story of one of his ancestors dying trying to prevent a train from entering Atlanta during the war and the secretary thought that re-enacting that was something that the man would have seen as AGoodWayToDie.
