** After "The Shredder Strikes Back Part 2", the Foot believed that the Turtles and allies were killed in the fire at April's antique store. This was due to Baxter Stockman faking proof in order to steal some resources from Shredder. The Turtles would take advantage of this by launching their own sneak attack in "Return to New York".
** This has happened to the Shredder multiple times. First, the Turtles thought he was killed by the collapsing water tower at the end of "The Shredder Strikes Part 2". Then, he seemed to have been killed by the destruction of [=TCRI=], only to show up alive at the end of the "City At War" arc.

* During the 1864 Siege of Petersburg in the ''UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar'', Union Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlin, famous for leading a heroic stand at Gettysburg, was severely wounded when a bullet passed through both hips and tore through his groin. Doctors predicted his wound was fatal, and he was "posthumously" promoted to Brigadier General. Newspapers in his home state of Maine ran obituaries about his supposed death. The doctor's diagnosis turned out to be accurate, but the predicted timing was not. Chamberlin did die from his wound, but not for another 50 years, in 1914. He was the last recorded civil war veteran to die from battle wounds.

* This was Aang's status for half of the third season of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' following the second season finale, where Azula killed Aang only for Katara to bring him back. [[InnocentlyInsensitive While Sokka was excited to have such a stealthy advantage]], Aang was initially upset that the world thought their only hope to end the war was gone forever, but eventually decided it was best that the world not know the Avatar was alive for now. Unfortunately, Azula, being the GenreSavvy MagnificentBitch she is, had a feeling that Aang was alive and not only had a plan to defend against the Gaang's invasion, but also make them waste their stealthy advantage.

* In a truly tragic and bizarre turn, when popular fan fiction writer "becuzitswrong" (whose collective stories have over half a million subscribers on fanfiction.net) started suffering serious delays in updating because of chronic health problems, a rumor made the rounds that the writer had died. Eventually, he posted an update to several fan fiction archives saying that, no, he was still alive and would be returning to regular updates soon. He even went so far as to quote the line "reports of my death were greatly exaggerated" and said that "things have finally calmed down and I am starting to write again. It is a wonderful feeling." He died for real less than a week after this announcement was posted.
