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.) Or perhaps the author wasn't one of the monster's targets, but observed what happened to its targets -- for example, using the example in the page quote, the author may have observed the ''Black Pearl'' from a safe distance, seen it pulling into a harbour, then found everyone there dead after the ship left. It may also be possible to piece events together after the fact based on circumstances, much like how an investigator can link multiple victims to the same SerialKiller based on a CallingCard or a running {{theme|SerialKiller}}, but figuring out the monster's habits still leaves its identity up in the air. ApocalypticLog and AlmostDeadGuy are more potential explanations.

Compare DidYouDie. No relation to DeathOfTheAuthor. ApocalypticLog is another possible explanation.

Contrast SpareAMessenger, where the one who commits an act deliberately leaves survivors to bear witness.

** Their deaf friends.
*** Similar story is told about unrooting mandrakes. The question remains: How would the deaf person even know there is a sound, let alone that it's the sound that is killing the other people?

Then again, deaf people could deduce quite easily that it's a deadly sound because they're the only ones who survive.

* Apart from the obvious, literal example of many characters (who do indeed occasionally narrate) being vampires, ''VampireDiaries'' features a somewhat surprising example as Elena reads one of the diaries of her ancestor Jonathan, as he actually states how he saw who killed him. It's explained by the existence of the Gilbert Protection Rings, of which Jonathan was the first wearer, which revive anyone killed by the supernatural.

* Wild Bill Hilcock was known for this. He would spin a Tall tale that would result in him facing insurmountable odds. When asked about what happened he would end it with, "Well son. I died!"
