* Many of Creator/HPLovecraft's stories, considering his preference for first person and high protagonist mortality rate. Though ''Call of Cthulhu'' at least justified the account of the encounter with Great Cthulhu in that some of the sailors who delayed him managed to live long enough to write it down.

* "True Story" by ShelSilverstein describes a list of misfortunes that befell the narrator, who kept escaping only to get into worse and worse danger until an eagle drops him in a boiling lake a thousand miles wide... "And you'll never guess what I did then-- I DIED!"

* Brought up in ''{{Persona 3}}'', when the heroes hear a ghost story about a deadly curse that befalls anyone who stays too late after school. They immediately realize that, if everyone it's ever happened to dies, as the story claims, then nobody would've ever found out about it. While there's a grain of truth to the idea that the school can become [[DarkWorld dangerous at night]], the details of the story turn out to be an urban myth.

* ''TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutron'' has Jimmy pointing out the FridgeLogic of an urban legend about a theme park, questioning how Nick could know the kids' final words if they were never heard from again.

* The fourth entry in [[http://dcist.com/2011/05/overheard_in_dc_end_of_the_world.php this]] ''Overheard in [[WashingtonDC DC]]'' involves a woman reading the book that ''Film/OneHundredAndTwentySevenHours'' was based on and not wanting spoilers about if the author lived or died. (The book is Aaron Ralston's own first-person memoir of his experience.)

* EdgarAllanPoe was usually good about averting UndeadAuthor. He even did it with ''Literature/ThePitAndThePendulum'', though he had to resort to a DeusExMachina.

* The ''Film/AlienVsPredator'' movie has the pyramid filled with hieroglyphs which include the details on how the ancient civilization ended. One wonders who was around to add those details, since all of the humans were dead and the Predators apparently abandoned it for thousands of years.

This of course raises the question of where the legend came from, if nobody has ever lived to talk about it? Perhaps the author was undead. Or the monster. Or both.
