* The final ''{{Animorphs}}'' novel should be a [[DarkActionGirl Rachel]] book, and starts as one...until that suicide mission she started turns out to ''really be'' a suicide mission. After that the narration switches between the other Animorphs. Due to the AmbiguousEnding, this trope may also apply for [[spoiler:everyone but [[TheHeart Cassie]]]] as well.

* A variation in ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'': Ambassador Spock was thrown into the past of an AlternateUniverse rather than killed, though anyone in the prime universe where the game is set would assume that he has been dead for many years and he certainly would have no knowledge of the goings-on of the game's universe after he left it. Nonetheless, the Ambassador provides substantial narration to explain events that occurred long after he vanished.
