* ''Unofficial History'' by Sir William Slim. During WW2, Brigadier Slim encounters some British troops under his command fleeing an attack by Italian bombers. They earnestly inform him they are the {{sole survivor}}s after their unit was wiped out, one of them adding that the brigadier is dead as well. Slim assures them that he's very much alive, then orders them back to their unit (which is still intact, just demoralized having never been in combat before).

* In ''WebComic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', after Roy defeats Xyklon in the Redmountains, he thought he finally fulfilled his mission, unaware that Redcloak had a SoulJar that would enable Xyklon to regenerate his body. It wasn't until the Azure City saga where Roy learned from his father that Xyklon was still alive.

** Hanzo was forced by his organized crime clan to kill his younger brother Genji, and Genji was thought to be dead as a result. In reality, Overwatch saved his life, giving him a new cyborg body. The revealation that Genji is alive leaves some rather deep-seated issues within Hanzo, who had been paying respects to the presumed-dead Genji every year until Genji in his new body showed up.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'': Link and Zelda have been presumed dead... [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld for about a hundred years]]. Link was, very nearly, killed in battle, and spent that century in a [[RipVanWinkle healing sleep that kept him from aging]]; Zelda spent it [[AndIMustScream trapped in the Malice of Calamity Ganon]]. Consequently, assuming the Hylian Champion survived his killing doesn't stop people from thinking he's dead.
