* Charlie from ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' ia considered to be "nearly indestructable" by his friends. This is justified, as, among other things, Charlie has literally been shot in the head with no repercussions.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Series/{{Neighbours}} Paul freaking Robinson]]''. He's probably had more attempts on his life than any other character in SoapOpera history, and he ''just refuses to die''. He has survived, in chronological order: getting shot by his wife; falling off a cliff (though [[AnArmAndALeg he did lose a leg]] after that one); ''his plane being blown up by a bomb and crashing into the sea'', whereupon he nearly drowned; being strangled by Harold Bishop (who lost his son and granddaughter in the aforementioned plane crash); being trapped in a collapsing mineshaft; getting shot ''again'' (he was wearing a BulletProofVest that time); a brain tumour (whose removal gave him LaserGuidedAmnesia); being pushed off a roof; having his car struck by sizeable debris during a tornado; being given chemotherapy for a cancer he didn't actually have (which gave him pneumonia); crashing his car into a tree; getting run over; and getting beaten up while in prison. That's ''thirteen'' near-death experiences, and he's ''still standing''.

** Clara Oswin Oswald, one of the "echoes" of Clara Oswald manages to be revived despite falling thousands of feet to earth ''from a cloud''. Yes, she is actually supposed to be dead before future tech brings her back, but the fact she doesn't resemble a pizza suggests this trope is in force.

* ''Series/{{Grimm}}'': The protagonist Nick Burkhart regularly takes blows from incredible opponents, and wrestle's with creatures that posses superhuman strength, notable demonstrations of his durability include being pulled out through his cars window and thrown onto the pavement, having a toaster smashed round his head [[ItMakesSenseInContext by a super strong part jackal creature]] and receiving a beating from a giant ogre and only getting a few bruised rips. JustifiedTrope in the fact he is a Grimm, a superhuman warrior.

* ''MarriedWithChildren'': The main characters demonstrate this: Marcy has been electrocuted, Kelly been bitten by deadly poisonous insects, Bud suffered various injuries in his futile attempts at romance, and Al suffering everything from electrocution to shooting himself in the foot to setting himself on fire to industrial accidents while trying to build a workbench with Jefferson to [[CrowningMomentofFunny repeatedly falling off the roof with Jefferson and his other buddies while trying to install a satellite dish on the roof]].
* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'': There's a debate in the fandom whether or not Merlin is immortal like his mythological counterpart. Thus far in the show, he has taken a fireball to the chest and got up unscathed, gotten hit by a freezing cold spirit that had killed all previous victims and disabled his magic (although he was dying that time and had to be saved by brook spirits)[[note]] And even that's debateable, as the brook spirits themselves said that he had great power, which could mean that he would have eventually survived[[/note]], and had a mace slice across his chest that most likely left a huge, open hole, and he still had enough energy to carry on a conversation with few winces.

* ''TopGear'': The show tried various methods to make a Toyota Truck stop running. [[SerialEscalation They tried driving it down stairs, running it into a tree, leaving it in the ocean for hours dropping it and things onto it, and finally putting it on top of a skyscraper that was being DEMOLISHED]]. The truck was still able to move. For this unbelievable achievement, they put it on a platform, and is still in the studio to this day.
* ''TrailerParkBoys'': Ricky has been repeatedly shot, often by accident, although always in a non-vital area. The worst damage he usually suffers is to his pride.

* ''WalkerTexasRanger'': The prototype soldier, a muscle man and enforcer of a supremacist bent on ruling the world by the end of the episode "Warriors." The soldier -- whom the supremacist intends to clone thousands of copies of -- is genetically enhanced, thanks to a researcher being forced to do so at gunpoint (she had created a quick-heal formula to help the ill and injured). The soldier's invulnerability is clear when Walker and Trivette are unable to so much as even make him flinch during their early encounters ... not even a machine gun full of bullets or Walker's roundhouse kick can beat the soldier. (Eventually, Walker does beat the man-mountain soldier, thanks to some help from the researcher, a flaming torch and a little gasoline.)

* ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles'': Detective Jane Rizzoli ''jumps off a bridge'' in order to save the DrivenToSuicide suspect who had just fallen off, not two seconds after she talked him out of jumping (she'd found proof he was being framed). The next episode, they are rescued and aside from some mild hypothermia, are perfectly fine. Even if the fall wasn't enough to kill them, it's highly unlikely that they wouldn't have sustained some considerable injury.

** Slade is probably the very worse case. He took a couple of hits from Hawkman's mace and somehow survives not one, but ''two'' huge explosions. The first one took one eye. The second one doesn't seem to even scratch him. [[spoiler:Lampshaded on the second occasion - a possible explanation might be that he is under the influence of {{Darkseid}}.]]

** Yes, he spent a few weeks in the hospital, but JimmyOlsen still looks pretty good for someone who has been mauled in the chest by freaking '''Doomsday'''.

* ''Series/Arrow'':
** What Oliver Queen is able to survive sometimes stretches the limits of credibility. While he takes a lot of injuries in his normal VigilanteMan routine, the time he survived being impaled through the chest, kicked off a cliff, and lying shirtless in the snow for hours has to take the cake.

* ''{{Dollhouse}}'': Played somewhat inconsistently. Sometimes, people go down really fast. Other times, well, watch the fight between Boyd and Ballard (particularly the part where one bashes the other's head with a rock).
