** The "people waking up after being chilled by cold water or even frozen" is a real medical issue and has happened in real life a number of times. Modern medical science now has the rule of thumb: "You're not dead until you're warm and dead." (Meaning, showing all signs of death while being ambient air temperature.)

* In ''Series/{{Being Human|UK}}'', this happens to Sasha and the other zombies. In Sasha's case, she wakes up just as they're about to dissect her and proceeds to scream pissily at the coroner for it. She doesn't seem particularly phased by any of it [[spoiler:but the other zombies, who are dissected while awake and thrown into furnaces, aren't quite so lucky.]]

* After witnessing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt and having a CreepyChild drop a demonic parasite that devours his eye and burrows into his head, the [[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne Demi-Fiend]]'s day starts as he wakes up at Shinjuku Hygienic Hospital's morgue. It speaks volumes about the game that this is the high point of his day.

* Largely averted in ''Series/iZombie'', because the VictimOfTheWeek is dead by the time Liv starts feeding. But Liv was on her way to the morgue when she reanimated in the pilot (she sat up in a body bag on the beach).
