* The prologue to the first annual of ''Marvel Team-Up'' which focused on SpiderMan and the XMen is narrated by a doomed minor character recalling the circumstances up to his death. It plays with this by making it look like his death is referring to how [[ThatManIsDead the person he once was died]] like what happens with several other characters in the story after they are mutated, but later on it's shown he was in fact killed during the opening accident.

Added DiffLines:

* In the one-shot story ''Toki Doki'', the narrator is [[spoiler:Poppo, the protagonist of the story. It begins with his describing his girlfriend Takagi, who was born on the same year and attended the same school, and her death at the age of 21]], and much of the remainder is about Takagi's heart condition that causes her heart to stop functioning early into her life. It turns out that [[spoiler:Poppo has the same heart condition as her, but because he is a natural thrill-seeker, his heart will stop functioning even sooner than her, and he dies a few pages before the end, at the age of 17. He continues to narrate about Takagi's subsequent high school graduation and her singer-songwriter career in the four years in between.]]

* In the ''Series/TalesFromTheCrypt'' episode "The Man Who Was Death", the protagonist's final narration is heard immediately after his [[DeathByIrony death by electric chair]]. For extra irony, he is telling his imaginary audience that didn't he have his head shaved to prevent it from catching on fire during the execution because he's confident that the governor will grant him a reprieve. Meanwhile, his head is starting to smoulder.
