** The difficulties of doing so are slightly addressed when Diggle asks how doing so could be possible, but Dean just replies "adrenaline". When Diggle protests that still doesn't make sense, Dean reminds him this is [[AWizardDidIt the supernatural]] and [[GivingUpOnLogic logic has no place in it]].[[note]]Plus, it's later revealed the witches that revived her were planning on digging her up, but ran when they realized something had gone wrong. While not confirmed, it's possible they started to dig before realizing it, and as such made her job a bit easier.[[/note]]



* Subveretd in ''Series/LostGirl'', when Kenzi is brought back to life inside her coffin. Dyson and Lauren are informed of it happening, and are smart enough to realize Kenzi is still in her grave. Ultimately, they dig her up.

* [[ComicBook/BlackestNight RISE!]]
* {{Superman}} did this in one story after having apparently been killed (and insta-buried) by Terra-Man. Since he retained his powers, it was not a very surprising feat. The twist set up by the villain was that he came back looking like Terra-Man, leading him to be hunted by other superheroes [[MistakenForOwnMurderer for obvious reasons]].
* In one of the comics where MickeyMouse is depicted as a hard-boiled detective, he was buried alive by the bad guys, in a fresh grave and without a coffin. He managed to cup some air in front of his face, but he only got a hand out under his own power, which was enough since the police were there by then and dug him up.

* In ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' (Volume 2) issue #10, Ultra-Humanite makes use of Terra's geokinesis to bury Kara alive. She only needs a few seconds to escape. Justified because she's a Kryptonian, ergo she is super-strong and she doesn't need to breathe.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series backstory, [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] were all but rendered extinct in the late 1st Era. However, while anyone of sufficient ability can slay the physical body of a dragon, they possess ResurrectiveImmortality and can be brought back to life by another dragon unless their [[YourSoulIsMine soul is absorbed]] by a fellow dragon (or [[TheChosenOne Dragonborn]]). Come ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', [[BigBad Alduin]] has [[SealedEvilInACan escaped the timestream]] and is bringing the dragons back to life. Many are buried in dragon burial mounds throughout Skyrim, and it is possible to witness several literally rising from their graves.

Similarly, the members of the Dragon Cult, a ReligionOfEvil which worshiped the dragons, were cursed with undeath for their crimes. They too are rising from their graves following Alduin's return in the form of [[OurLichesAreDifferent Dragon Priests]] and [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Draugr]].
