* In the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' universe, only one method has ever been able to do anything even close to bring back the dead: [[spoiler:the resurrection stone, one of the three Deathly Hallows.]] Even then, it only brought back a sick facsimile of the person, and after its first use no one was eager to use it again. More conventional magic can regenerate bones from scratch, reshape bodies, or undo petrification, but cannot resurrect anyone.

* Creator/ValiantComics, as part of their emphasis on realism, had this policy before the Acclaim era reboot.

* An enforced policy in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', to make death means something[[note]][[GamePlayAndStorySeggregation In spite of the fact that the game itself has plenty of resurrection spells]].[[/note]]. This is why characters like Yawgmoth and Urza aren't running around, and why each death in the modern era is all the more tragic. There is one possible exception in [[spoiler:Elspeth]], given the unique circumstances she is in, but even then Creative tells to hold no breath,

* Despite ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternity'' being a high-magic setting, there is no spell that can resurrect the dead so any companions who die are dead for good (the setting does have magic that binds the soul to the body in such a way that the person doesn't exactly die, but this has major [[HorrorHunger drawbacks]], and ultimately leads to being a mindless soul endlessly bound to a pile of bonedust, so it isn't exactly something you'd ''want'' to have done to you if you know the price). However, {{reincarnation}} happens naturally to everyone.

However, {{reincarnation}} happens naturally to everyone. There are ways to ''cheat'' this, but they tend to come with [[HorrorHunger drawbacks]] and usually end up with the soul being [[AndIMustScream trapped forever in a completely-decayed pile of bonedust]]. Other attempts to cheat or manipulate the system are heavily intertwined with the game's plot.

* In ''Franchise/TolkiensLegendarium'', this only applies to mortal creatures, in most cases Men, aka humans and Hobbits. Unlike most examples of the trope, this is actually seen as a good thing, well, to [[WhoWantsToLiveForever everyone who's not mortal]]. Specifically, Men are given the gift of death, the ability for their souls to depart from the circles of Arda to somewhere unknown, though the wise reassure us it's definitely to somewhere or something, and not oblivion. As for everyone else, they are sent to the Halls of Mandos where he judges them, and if found worthy can be reincarnated. The problem is that while Elves seem like they're getting the benefits while Men get the short end of the stick, they must stay in Arda until the world's end. Elves sometimes call Men the Guests for this reason, to be free of the burdens of a world in decline while Elves, Dwarves, and the Valar and Maia must remain where their fates are more uncertain. The exception is Luthien, who managed for the first and only time in existence to beg for her human love Beren not to depart without her. She was made mortal instead, and they died together. Their descendants, the Half-Elven have the choice to become mortal if they so choose. Tuer and Turin are also interesting cases, as Turin's soul is burdened with Morgoth's curse and the many sins in his life, he's doomed to stay in Arda until the end of time where he'll kill Morgoth for good, and Tuer, who sailed to the Undying Lands with his Elven wife Idril, the legends saying he was counted among them.

*** [[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates The fourteenth game]] also has a one-use staff to revive a dead character, with the catch that you cannot select who to revive; whoever was the latest to die ''in the chapter you use it'' comes back.

** Valkryie. She was actually revived by Thor, but got killed again by Loki right after her resurrection, so she got officially retgonned.
** Gwen Stacy. Her ''clone'' was created, with the DNA and all exact memories as the real Gwen Stacy, so she's kinda the real Gwen brought back to life. But the original Gwen is still dead, as her original persona was killed by Carnage and didn't actually come back, only a clone did.
** Doctor Doom, seemingly killed at the end of Ultimatum by The Thing, was later brought back for the series Ultimate FF, with the one killed in Ultimatum being retconned as an impostor.

**** Then again, given that it's [[CrazyPrepared Doctor Doom]], it's entirely possible that the writers planned for the other Doom to be an impostor from the start.

** Note that AutoRevive phylacteries do exist, which is what saved Voldemort when Lily Potter rigged his execution method to completely backfire, but (A) It EATS a piece of the user's soul, (B) it revives them as a unique form of ghost that CAN be resurrected, but needs serious help or they'll be stuck that way, and (C) to make another, you need all the previously created phylacteries intact and at the ritual site, so if someone kills / dispels even a single phylactery, you're fucked AND you're down one whole part of your soul, forever (which is not good for your afterlife). Not exactly something a tyrant wants to do to themselves, but it didn't stop Voldemort from being suicidally dull.
