* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Emil and Lalli try to escape a giant via a frozen body of water, but the fact that it can't hold Emil results in Lalli killing the giant via a burst of magic that shatters both the giant and the ice. They manage to escape on an ice floe and get ashore somewhere far away from the rest of the crew. When Sigrun backtracks the next morning looking for them, all she finds is the giant's exploded corpse right nest to the part of the body of water that got its ice blown to bits in the explosion. She comes to the conclusion anyone would, and tells the rest of crew upon returning.

* Country music pioneer Ray Price was also a victim of the premature obituary, as many national news outlets (from ''Rolling Stone'' to the ''USA Today'') had reported the singer's purported passing on Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013, from cancer only for Price's wife, Janie, to reveal that although he was near death, he was still alive. [[http://popcultureblog.dallasnews.com/2013/12/reports-of-country-legend-ray-prices-death-have-been-premature.html/ See this link for more details.]] Incidentally, Price did die approximately a day after the premature obituaries were announced online, leaving behind one of the greatest legacies ever in country music.

* In the ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' mini-series ''The Doomsday Wars'', a suddenly speaking Doomsday gloats that "The rumors of my stupidity were greatly exaggerated''. In a way, this is this trope as both Doomsday and the person actually riding him, Brainiac, were thought dead by this point (Doomsday was presumed dead at the end of ''Hunter/Prey'' and Brainiac was seemingly killed at the start of ''Doomsday Wars''.)

* Invoked in ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfMordor'' and its sequel ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowsOfWar'': because they were created as soldiers by Sauron, orcs are actually very hard to kill unless straight-up decapitated. As a result, it's a game mechanic that orcs who have been promoted to Nemeses can heal up from presumed-fatal blows you dealt them in your last encounter and return to fight you again. [[spoiler:It's been revealed that, in ''Shadows of War'', your own Branded Orcs can likewise potentially shrug off killing blows and return to service.]]
