** The pirate Jack was reported dead after he picked a fight with several Admirals. However, the Mink tribe, which was recently attacked by Jack given a sample of just how freakishly strong he is, worry that he might be alive because they NeverFoundTheBody; And he is, injured, but alive and more than furious that the newspapers wrote him off.

* 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.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'', Metro Man goes so far as to fake his death before retiring to live alone. He makes a return for the finale in a spiritual sense, as it's actually Megamind using a hologram disguise, and quotes the trope name word-for-word.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'', this is what Fievel's family believes after he falls off the boat to America. With the exception of his sister, Tania, they don't even want to entertain the idea that he might be alive. Even worse, [[MissedHimByThatMuch they keep missing each other due to random chances]].

* Jonathan Doors is shot by a sniper in the pilot of ''EarthFinalConflict'', protecting the Taelon ambassador Da'an. Turns out, it was all a setup. The sniper was working for Doors and was shooting blanks, as was the doctor who confirmed his death. The goal was to set up LaResistance to figure out the real reason the Taelons came to Earth. A few episodes later, Doors publicly outs himself, using a similar line to this trope.
