* In R. L. Stevenson's ''Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde'', Hyde dies and retains his shape, but in most JekyllAndHyde movies, he reverts to Jekyll on death, suggesting perhaps that his evil self is gone and now he is at peace.

* At the end of the ''{{Mistborn}}'' trilogy, [[BigBad Ruin]], the god of destruction, is killed, and he leaves behind- a human corpse, leaking the black smoke that had been previously identified as Ruin's divine power. [[spoiler:WordOfGod is that Ruin was actually a combination of a human intelligence named Ati and the cosmic force of entropy- his death knocked the two apart, leaving the human body of Ati behind.]] The same had previously happened to his opposite, Preservation, though none of the characters witnessed it.

* ''Film/TheMatrix'': Agents are capable of taking over bystanders' bodies. If they should be killed, the program leaves and the innocent most recent host is unmistakably dead. There are no other bodies, but all their other hosts are presumably very dead as well, or they just find themselves someplace strange with no memory of how they got there.

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in ''Series/TheFlash2014'': Everyman's "default" form is a bald man with a layer of skin covering his eyes ([[EyelessFaceif he even has eyes]]), because he can't even ''remember'' what he originally looked like when he was normal. When he dies in a later episode, he reverts from the form that he had been taking into that default form, but we already know that is not his original appearance.
