* ''VideoGame/{{killer7}} has its FinalBoss and PostFinalBoss:
** [[spoiler:Greg Nightmare starts off as a standard boss by this game's standards. Then you blow off his lower body, at which point he won't die no matter how many times you shoot him. In addition, he spawns seven Black Smiles, each of which kill a personality permanently and cannot be killed at all. What you're supposed to do is watch all six main personalities die until you get to Garcian, at which point he can pick up the Golden Gun, which will one-shot any remaining Smiles and Nightmare himself]].
** [[spoiler:The Last Shot Smile is an utterly pathetic boss, but the aforementioned Golden Gun takes five shots to kill it, meaning that from a plot perspective, it's likely immune to all other weapons, as well]].

* The RPG episodes of {{VIdeoGame/Lisa}} feature multiple istances of this, particularly the Joy Mutants. There's two particularly egregious istances of this:
** In ''LISA the Painful'', Brad ends up taking a LOT of punishment [[spoiler:during the finale, where he takes on his own companions, the entire Rando Army, and Rando himself. By the end of it, he's literally littered with arrows. It helps that he's overdosing on Joy and turning into a mutant]].
** In ''LISA the Joyful'', we've got one of the warlords: [[spoiler:Sindy Gallows. By the time Buddy meets him, he has been struck by multiple arrows (including some in the head) and hanged. Then he wakes up and fights you ''while still hanging from the gallows'']].

* The monsters of ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' have this in addition to another trick. While they have armor, it acts like a low level force field, protecting them from harm. But as soon as that's gone, they suffer damage from everything that hits them. ''And it still doesn't matter''. Orbital strikes, lasers, electricity, mortars, harpoons, poison, missiles, and fire all do damage, and it still doesn't affect them. They'll keep going until they die, which isn't exactly an easy timeframe.

* King K Rool in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry''. In the first game it's fairly standard punishment, but in the second, he gets his gun explode on him about ten times, gets punched out the window of an airship by a captured Donkey Kong, hits every single cliff face on the way down, torn apart by sharks, sinks into the ocean, has his gun explode AGAIN in the TrueFinalBoss battle, flies into the island core, is presumably there when it sinks like Atlantis and sails away on his ship afterwards. Then, in the third game, he gets electrocuted like ten times from his mad science laboratory equipment, and has a giant egg dropped on his head by the freed Banana Bird queen... Then gets beaten up by all five Kongs in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'', hit by a rocket powered boot shot by Funky Kong, thrown straight through the roof of the boxing roof and into K Lumsy Island, where said giant locked up Kremling proceeds to beat K Rool senseless for locking him up. He's perfectly fine in later appearances.
* In ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood'', [[spoiler: the Cardinal in the St. Peter's Basilica Lair of Romulus sidequest]] can take multiple crossbow bolts or blows from a heavy weapon, damage that would crumple a [[HeavilyArmoredMook Brute]], despite apparently wearing nothing more protective than cloth robes.

* ''MortalKombat'' dips into this in the 2011 {{Reboot}} and [[VideoGame/MortalKombatX 2015 followup]]: each character has a special attack dubbed the X-Ray Move, in which they unleash such brutal attacks that it shatters bone and destroys organs, complete with (as the name suggests) a brief X-ray image of said destruction. Not only do these characters keep fighting after having their skulls cracked, spines broken, and livers frozen and shattered, but you can do it over and over again.
** Mortal Kombat, amazingly (and quite infamously), is one of the few mediums where the characters are MadeOfIron and MadeOfPlasticine at the same time. Over the course of the match, they can be beaten to a bloody pulp by blows from other superhumans and not show a hint of discomfort or fatigue; but the ''second'' the match is over and they enter the iconic "groggy" state, they can easily be torn apart by the very same types of attacks they were taking not 2 minutes ago.

* ''TheIncredibleMachine'''s CosmicPlaything mini-human Mel Schlemming can withstand anything outside of getting eaten, though falling from a great height will knock him out.

** Of course the series has had it's share of this trope from day one, with the characters regularly receiving and surviving blades to the chest either from Scorpion or Kano.

* The player goat in ''VideoGame/GoatSimulator''. You simply cannot die. Hit by a truck? Set yourself on fire with a barbeque grill? Blew up the gas station and got caught in the blast? No problem! The worst that'll happen is that you get flung backwards high into the air, exhibiting RagdollPhysics along the way, and a simple press of the "Ragdoll" key while lying down will get you back up and running! Even better, NPC goats and humans also have the same degree of invulnerability, no matter how much the latter scream in pain!

*** [[spoiler: This is partially subverted as of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' where it's revealed by the end that the Big Boss you defeat at the end of ''VideoGame/MetalGear was actually Venom Snake, Big Boss's body double. Still pretty impressive with the latter though who's still Big Boss.]]

* Every FightingGame ever. ''StreetFighter''? Just as one example, the piledriver is capable of breaking necks in the real world when done in the somewhat controlled environment of ProfessionalWrestling; Zangief can perform one from effectively 20' in the air, and the victim can get up. Then there's ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'' and ''[[SoulSeries Soul Calibur]]'', where you can shrug off a sword aimed through the chest. Somewhat needed, though, otherwise these games could be very, very short.
