* In Trelane's backstory in the ''[[Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar Mage Storms Trilogy]]'', he once made a perfect copy of the Emperor's personal seal, and stored it in a booby-trapped desk. He would eventually use it to forge orders to allow him to strip an Imperial supply depot of everything his men could carry while the Gate remained stable after the Storms made communication and transportation with the Empire highly unreliable, allowing them to secure the resources needed to survive the winter.

* ''Series/{{Attila}}''. When Flavius Aetius is restored to power by the mother of the Emperor, he insists she give him her seal to let others know that he's acting on her authority and is not still in disgrace. He then arranges for an assassin to kill the Emperor, using the seal to convince the assassin that she's arranged it, and even giving him the seal as a GetOutOfJailFreeCard in case he's captured. Aetius then kills the assassin just as he's about to strike, earning the Emperor's gratitude and sowing distrust when he finds his mother's seal on the assassin's body.

* In the events surrounding the conquest of Sweden by the Danish king Christian II in 1520, a number of Swedish notables were "asked" to sign and seal a document supporting Christian's claim to the throne. According to legend, bishop Wender Brask placed a note reading "Härtill är jag nödd och tvungen" ("Unto this I am forced and compelled") under the wax when putting on his seal. When Gustaf I Vasa drove the Danes out and began hunting down Christian's supporters, Brask broke his seal and displayed the note, which lead the king to pardon him for his involvement. How much of this is true and how much is legend is up for debate, but the document exists, Brask's seal is missing from it, and we know from other sources that Brask survived Gustaf's extremely thorough purges.

In Chinese and Japanese law, one needs a stamp to 'sign' documents in one's name - 'signatures' as Europeans know them are an impossibility as written Chinese doesn't have an alphabet. Also called a 'chop', one's stamp must to be registered with the authorities before it is officially recognized. These stamps, referred to (by the Japanese) as ''hanko'', or ''inkan'', are used with red ink to mark a document.
