* Parodied in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Dilbert}}'' cartoon where they discuss a story of a co-worker killing an entire field hockey team and not leaving survivors was learned from reading it any survivors. Someone points out that it's a very detailed account for an incident that's not supposed to have any witnesses. It turns out that killer herself posted the story on her website.

* Fans of ''Film/CitizenKane'' have gone to great lengths to reconcile the FridgeLogic of how Kane's last word, spoken as he died all alone, could be known to the man investigating why he'd said "Rosebud". ** It's not a mystery. The butler heard Kane say it when he died, as well as right after he [[TrashTheSet wrecked the room up]], and said as much at the end. [[BehindTheBlack He was just off-screen]].

* Lampshaded in ''Film/KickAss'', where Kick-Ass/David [[BreakingTheFourthWall tells the people in the audience]] who figured he wouldn't die at one point because he's still narrating to stop being a bunch of smartasses and lists several films with PosthumousNarration ([[spoiler:which doesn't include this one]]).

* Similarly [[InvertedTrope inverted]] in ''[[{{Spellsinger}} The Paths of the Perambulator]]'', when Jon-Tom narrowly avoids being killed by [[spoiler: an explosive pinecone]]. When he protests that there are no such things on his (our) world, Mudge half convinces him that there ''could'' be, if anyone who encounters one dies and is written off as the victim of a mundane hiking accident.

* In one episode of ''Series/GilligansIsland'' had a gag where Gilligan had a book about poisonous plants. Much to his confusion, however, the author was referred to as 'Late'.
