** [[spoiler: Manfred von Karma]] was shot in the shoulder and carried the bullet around for ''ten years'' just so nobody would find out about it.

** [[spoiler: Manfred von Karma]] was shot in the shoulder and carried left the bullet around in there for ''ten years'' just so nobody would find out about it.



*** He ''fell from a burning bridge, 10 meters in the air, landed in a freezing cold river with a horrifying fast current and was carried along with said current of doom for a few miles and only got a cold from it''.
*** And, finally, he was hit by a ''car'' and hurled 30 feet across the street, right into a metal pole and ''hitting his head on it'', but stood up and walked away with just ''a sprained ankle''.
** Apollo Justice got caught in a courtroom bombing and sustained severe injuries, but somehow only spent a grand total of two days in the hospital.

*** He ''fell fell 10 meters from a burning bridge, 10 meters in the air, landed in a freezing cold river with a horrifying famous for it's horrifyingly fast current and current, was carried along with said current of doom for a few miles miles, and only got a cold from it''.
''cold'' out of it. [[spoiler:Dahlia Hawthorne deliberately jumped off the same bridge and didn't even get that. [[InsaneTrollLogic Maybe because it wasn't on fire then]]?]]
*** And, finally, he was hit by a ''car'' and hurled 30 feet across the street, right into a metal pole and ''hitting where his head on it'', but stood up and walked away made high-speed contact with just ''a a metal pole. All he got was a sprained ankle''.
''ankle''.
** Apollo Justice got caught in a courtroom bombing and sustained severe injuries, but somehow only spent a grand total of two days in the hospital. Then again, Trucy constantly uses him as a guinea pig for her magic tricks. It's possible he's built up a tolerance to most forms of pyrotechnics by now.
** Pearl Fey ''ran'' from Kurain Village to Japanifornia at the age of eight without breaking a sweat. The trip takes two hours by train. Her LimitedWardrobe includes platform sandals, meaning [[AgonyOfTheFeet she either wore those while running or took them off and ran barefoot]].

* Not strictly an example, but: in Yuri and Estelle's FriendshipMoment the night before the final battle in ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', Estelle comments on how she's surprised that he can't sleep, and he replies "You say that like I'm made of iron or something." In a meta way, it's probably fair to say he is, in every sense of the word: both as a character and as a force in battle [[GameBreaker (being one of the most broken playable characters]] in the ''TalesSeries'').

* By the end of ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'', [[spoiler:Mastermind Junko Enoshima]] goes through ''a lot'' of punishment when they go through ''every prior execution in succession''. Bear in mind that even ''one'' of those was enough to kill a person, [[RasputinianDeath yet they]] ''[[RasputinianDeath somehow]]'' [[RasputinianDeath live through all but the last of those!]]

* Nathan Drake of ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'' is either this, BornLucky, or some combination of the two. He takes some mean bumps only to come away relatively unharmed (enough to keep fighting). He's also gone as far surviving days in the desert with absolutely ''nothing'' except the clothes on his back and still got into a firefight (and ''won'') upon coming across a destroyed settlement. Notable since earlier in that game a companion character ends up with a broken leg simply by falling off a ledge.

* From the same people, ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' has several characters who stretch the limits of survivability, even without the player character's death-reversing powers.

** [[spoiler:Yomiel, in the alternate timeline]], [[ItMakesSenseInContext gets hit with a supersonic sweet potato]], stabbed in the back with the pointy part of a statue, then has his legs crushed by a free-falling megalith. [[spoiler:It appears he sustained nothing permanent, according to the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue.]]
** Inspector Cabanela [[JumpingOnAGrenade jumps into an explosion]] (one that killed another person in the room) [[NonLethalExplosion and survives]]. Granted, both of his legs get mangled, and he sustains several more debilitating injuries.
** The poor [[ButtMonkey rat]] living in Lynne and Emma's apartment complex. He gets flung around the room, dropped onto and dangles from a clock's pendulum, [[GrievousBottleyHarm smacked by an angry lady with a wine bottle]], galvanized with an electric cable, and has his tail set on fire.
---> '''Sissel:''' Now I REALLY owe that rat an apology.

Added DiffLines:

** Link in ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' slams facefirst into a ''stone'' wall after being launched several hundred feet by of a ''[[CatapultToGlory catapult]],'' and then falls hundreds of feet [[SoftWater into the water below]]. He shrugs it off after only a brief moment of looking a little tired.

** The part about Liquid possessing Ocelot is because [[spoiler: Ocelot inherited his father's psychic abilities]]. It remains to be seen if the sheer {{Bad Ass}}itude is part of the transfer, but considering the ''Metal Gear'' aaga's tendency for thematic mirroring (Big Boss killing The Boss, Snake killing Big Boss, Raiden killing Solidus Big Boss killing Gene, Snake killing Liquid) it's not unthinkable.

** Krogan in-game are extremely hardy, with secondary and sometimes tertiary organ systems and regenerative abilities. Thane Krios, a superb assassin whose preferred techniques tend towards quick, low-fuss {{neck snap}}s on most species, has a somewhat different style when killing krogan while [[{{Badass}} unarmed]].

* All the Heroes in ''VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefront2015'', even if their health varies, can take absurd amounts of punishment ranging from flurries of lightsaber swings to direct fire from AT-ATs. The only Heroes with excuses are Chewbacca, who's a Wookee, and Vader, who's more machine than man. Everyone else is physically a normal member of their species, so they should die as easily as human, Rodian or Sullustautes n foot soldiers do.
