* A rare example of a trope being prepared for well in advance occurs with ''Series/GameOfThrones''. In 2013, George R.R. Martin, author of the book series upon which it was based, indicated that he'd briefed the showrunners of the series regarding his planned ending of the novel cycle, in order to allow the producers to both plan ahead, and also continue the story should Martin [[AuthorExistenceFailure be unable to complete the novels]].

* ''Made In Heaven'' by {{Queen}} was this on purpose, as Freddie Mercury didn't think he had enough time left to create whole songs (and he was sadly correct); so he just did his parts and let the rest of the band finish them after he died.

** In the late 1970s, with Reeves' previously unreleased music still selling as well as it did prior to his death, RCA Records producer Bud Logan had the bright idea to remix three previously recorded-but-unreleased songs and old album cuts from Reeves' catalog - "Don't Let Me Cross Over," "Oh How I Miss You Tonight" and "Take Me In Your Arms and Hold Me" - and mix them with up-and-coming artist, singer-songwriter Deborah Allen. All three remixes were top 10 hits during 1979-1980.
** In 1981, with interest in newly remixed tracks by Music/PatsyCline also high, another RCA employee came up with a double-posthumous collaboration involving Cline and Reeves, who never recorded together in their lifetimes (and ironically enough, both died in plane crashes). Both artists recorded their solo versions of "Have You Ever Been Lonely, Have You Ever Been Blue" and released them on various albums. Since both versions were the same key and tempo, it was the perfect song for RCA engineers to use to create the "duet." The original vocal tracks were lifted from the original stereo tapes and spliced together with a new musical backing recorded, resulting in top 5 country hit and even generating minor airplay on pop stations(!), which is undeniable proof that DeadArtistsAreBetter.
