* In ''Manga/KoiNeko'', [[spoiler:Inaho the kitsune presents Shinta with a mysterious box that, when opened, will cause one of the two Naos - {{Cat Girl}}s who were once kittens he looked after as a child - to disappear. The reason for this is that one of them died, but both wished to be with Shinta]].

* The third season premiere of ''SixFeetUnder'' opens with Nate trapped in a MentalWorld with recurring references to Schrödinger's Cat, highlighting the fact that he's in an in-between state [[spoiler:while undergoing risky brain surgery]] and won't know where he is until he actually takes a risk and "opens the box."

* [[SCPFoundation SCP]]-[[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2144 2144]] is, in usual SCP fashion, an attempt to turn the trope into mild creepypasta. 2144 is a cat who is invisible to cameras, inaudible to microphones, and intangible to weighing scales, yet very lively and animate as long as it stays in an open area (humans can see/hear/touch it just fine, but they can't feel its heartbeat). If you force it into an enclosed area it immediately becomes comatose, but cameras and microphones can detect it again. Oh, and it emits deadly radiation and exhales hydrogen cyanide while comatose. Fortunately for everyone else it has an aversion to open doors and windows.

* In one ''TheMightyThor'' story, Donald Blake references Schrödinger's cat in describing the Odinsleep, saying the sleeper is in a state between life and death. * Played with in ''TheIncredibleHercules'', where Amadeus Cho finds himself playing a deadly Role-Playing Game (itself a SchrodingersButterfly of a sort), in which his character, Mastermind Excello, encounters a box containing a cat that is literally both dead and alive in the lair of a MadScientist.

* One of the "[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/extras/ps000029.html extra]]" pages from ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' depicts the Midnight Crew unleashing hundreds of these cats, existing in every possible state between alive and dead, on the Wasp Professor. -->And unfortunately for the Professor... EVERY ONE OF THOSE CAT STATES IS UNBELIEVABLY DEADLY.

* [=McGee=] makes a direct reference to this in the {{NCIS}} episode 'Grace Period', where a suicide bomber named Yazid who has killed two NCIS agents is unknown to be either alive or dead the day before his bombing. Ducky claims he had been dead a day before he blew himself up, but the team finds evidence that he had called from a cellphone on the day he died. [[spoiler: Turns out a different guy (whom an agent had seen walk into the building when the bomb went off) had killed Yazid the day before by suffocating him with latex, which he used to create a mold of his throat and mouth, which he then used to recreate his voice on a life-like voice emitter to call someone the day of the bombing to make the authorities think he was still alive, then he rigged Yazid's corpse with a bomb and blew him up inside a building in order to discredit his Muslim Peace Conference. Talk about a {{Complexity Addiction}}.]]
