* Parodied in the ''Series/{{Tatort}}'' episode "Satisfaktion": After pathologist Professor Boerne is knocked out by being hit on the head from behind with a sabre at an academic fraternity, he wakes up on one of his morgue's steel tables and asks: "Am I dead?" His assistant Alberich answers to the negative. It turns out he had just been brought to their place of work where she stitched up the cut and sat back to wait for him to regain consciousness.

* In James Blaylock's ''Homunculus'', Willis Pule is knocked unconscious during a scuffle with zombies, then hauled away with the bodies left behind when they de-animate. Pule's skin had been stained pale green in an earlier incident, so whomever collected the bodies can't be wholly blamed for mistaking him for yet another corpse.

* [[https://www.rt.com/news/327498--dead-russian-man-vodka/ You wake up at the morgue... but no, you don't have any superpowers and nothing weird happened, you were just so ridiculously drunk the paramedics actually thought you were dead.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'', the protagonist does this near the beginning of the game, much to the surprise of the two (presumed) pathologists who were about to autopsy him (while he was still fully clothed, for some reason). ** Though, this could be because he's a ShapeShifter who even has the ability to spontaneously create the clothing of the person whose identity he takes. ** Given that the pair of pathologists' reactions to him waking up are "Get the kill team in here!" rather than, say, "Call the [=EMPs=]," they might not have been as surprised as you'd think. They were, after all, working for GENTEK, and get themselves killed by yelling at [[StateSec Blackwatch]]. *** [[WebVideo/{{Unskippable}} "Get the kill team in here!"? How often does this happen?]]

* Klyde and Meriem battle in ''ComicBook/{{Cavewoman}}: Rain'', apparently killing each other. In reality, the beatdown (and other damages) had been bad enough that they had been knocked into a [[OnlyMostlyDead death-like coma]]... from which Klyde woke up while being prepped for dissection.

* After dying from injuries sustained in a battle with Neron, WonderWoman is transformed into a goddess and wakes up after being autopsied and stuffed into a bodybag. * Happened to NormanOsborn in a {{Retcon}} after his climactic battle with Spider-man following the death of Gwen Stacy--first thing he did was murder a vagrant who vaguely looked liked him and put the poor guy's corpse in his place, then made off for Europe to build a criminal empire once he saw that his son Harry was going to take over the Goblin identity. * Happens to {{Deadpool}} a lot given his HealingFactor. It only really fazes him anymore if he wakes up in a more interesting location

* In an episode of ''The Mob Doctor'', a patient comes into the emergency room and then has an apparent heart attack. The doctor is trying to explain what happened to the man's pregnant wife. She insists on seeing her husband's body. The body is still in the trauma room so they take the wife there. Then the husband wakes up and wants to know what is going on and why his wife is crying. The man apparently has a very rare condition where his heart can stop for a few minutes and then start beating again. The rest of the episode the doctors try to determined what caused the condition and how to stop it from occurring again since the next time the man might not wake up. Also they do not want to be know as the doctors who had the same patient die on them twice in a day. * Piper does this in the Series/{{Charmed}} episode "Styx Feet Under". Since the FBI agent who's been following them for the last few episodes is in the room when it happens, it's the event that finally allows him to penetrate TheMasquerade.
