* 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).

* Played with in Creator/MichaelCrichton's ''Literature/TheGreatTrainRobbery''. The crew exploits a Victorian-era fear of this by having a member fake being dead, but give a false positive on the bell attached to his finger in his casket so that the police would be reluctant to search the coffin with the grieving widow right there.

To really seal the deal, they make him up to look obviously putrid (and rub a dead cat on him for the stink) and have the "widow" claim he died of something nice and contagious...

* Exploited in the first arc of ''[[ComicBook/{{X23}} All New Wolverine]]''. [[spoiler: Before the raid on the Alchemax labs, Laura and Bellona (an attempt by Alchemax to clone Laura that lacked her HealingFactor) [[TwinSwitch disguised themselves as each other]], then 'Bellona' launched a frontal attack and got machine-gunned so badly she flatlined. After 'Wolverine' and Gabby "bolted," the casualty was hauled to an unguarded lab ''well inside the security perimeter'' for autopsy[=/=]dissection... with predicable results.]]
