* The ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6096887/1/Dust Dust]]'' is set after the episode "Haunted", so Slade's hallucinated presence is referenced. More important are several pre-recorded messages he left behind prior to his death to taunt Robin. [[spoiler: And then it turns out that the story's entire plot -- someone conducting a campaign to emotionally destroy the Titans -- was set up in advance by him at some point during Season 2.]]

* In the fourth season of ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'', Jim Moriarty, who apparently killed himself at the end of the second season, is hinted to be somehow still alive and plotting the events of the season. It is revealed in the final episode that he really did die, but pre-arranged with the new BigBad that the villain in question could use recordings of him to troll Sherlock.

* In one of the most effective executions, we have Slade from the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' animated show. He was thrown into a pool of lava in the second season, but the dust in his mask left a chemical substance that made Robin see, hear and feel Slade, even when he wasn't there. It's also a subversion; Slade himself is resurrected by Trigon in the following season.
** On the other hand, however, the final season had the return of several villains that were either A. [[SealedEvilinACan sealed in a book]] (Malchior), B. not magically animated anymore (the Puppet Master), C. eaten by Cyborg (the alien Nufu) [[AssPull without reason.]]

* ''Series/StargateSG1'': An episode in one of the later seasons featured a villain of the week named Khalek. He's not only revealed to be a Goa'uld-Human hybrid, but a clone of [[OmnicidalManiac Anubis]], the most evil Go'uld who ever lived. Anubis had built him as a backup plan with GeneticMemory from his "father" in the event that he was taken out for good himself.
