* In ''VideoGame/AgeOfMythology'', when you lose normal army units while playing as the Greeks worshiping Hades, you will receive weak "shade" units at your temple. They're weak and vulnerable, but they don't count toward your ArbitraryHeadcountLimit, making them great for a ZergRush or as last-ditch CannonFodder.

* In ''SaintSeiya'', Hades brings back to life fallen Gold Saints of Athena, granting them 12 hours to bring him her head. If they do so, he may bring them back to life for real. It turns out that they remained loyal to their Goddess nonetheless and only accepted Hades' deal to warn her about the upcoming Holy War while killing some members of Hades' army in the process. Once the 12 hours delay expired, they disappeared to return to the Underworld (where they join again to fire a super CombinedEnergyAttack).
* In [[Literature/FateZero Fate/Zero]], among the Noble Phantasms owned by Servant Rider, Alexander the Great, is his Reality Marble: Ionioi Hetairoi, "Army of the King". After the boundary field is set, his ''entire army'' from life slowly appear, each and every one [[UndyingLoyalty so ferociously loyal to Alexander that death itself can not keep them from aiding their king.]] 100 of the greatest assassins in history? [[BadassArmy Meet the army that]] '''[[BadassArmy conquered the world.]]'''
