* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': In ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' Shallan is witness to Jasnah being assassinated by the [[NebulousEvilOrganization Ghostbloods]], and the ship they're traveling on sinks (by Shallan, trying to escape from the Ghostbloods). Shallan carries this information back to Jasnah's family, unaware that Jasnah used her [[{{Teleportation}} Elsecalling]] powers to escape into [[AnotherDimension Shadesmar]], and her [[HealingFactor Stormlight]] to recover from her wounds. It took her until ''Literature/{{Oathbringer}}'' to actually get ''back'' though.

** During "Sunday, Cruddy Sunday," Marge and Lisa work on an egg painting kit endorsed by Vincent Price. After discovering they're missing a set of decorative feet that's supposed to come with the kid, Marge calls the company and is shocked when Price himself answers even though he'd died several years before the episode aired. Price declares "You should know the grave could never claim me" before giving Marge instructions on how to get the feet. He then caps off by saying "I must now return to the sweet embrace of the crypt." Lisa's not sure if Price is supposed to be alive or dead by that point. Things get even more complicated when he appears at the end of the episode, driving a bus.

* In ''Disney/TheLionKing'', after going into self exile over thinking he was responsible for Mufasa's death, everyone in the Pride Lands thought Simba was dead. Even Scar assumed that, as the hyenas didn't tell him he got away from them. When [[RightfulKingReturns he returned to take back the Pride Lands]], everyone (baring Nala who had already found out he was alive) at first thought he was Mufasa's ghost.
