** This is also used in ''The Book of Night with Moon''. Cats get nine lives (basically, reincarnation with full awareness of the system, although dying apparently causes ''some'' memory loss), but if they're really good they get a tenth, immortal life in service of the Powers.

* A fairly weak but completely by-the-book version in ''Literature/{{Elantris}}'': pre-Reod and post-restoration, pretty much anybody had a random chance of becoming one of the Elantrians, a race of super-powered, magical, semi-immortal pseudo-deities that basically everyone wanted to be. Kinda sucks if you got in after the universe broke though.
* Also from Creator/BrandonSanderson, ''Literature/MistbornTheOriginalTrilogy'' ends with this happening twice, first to the heroine Vin, who takes the power of Preservation and then after Vin kills Ruin via TakingYouWithMe, Sazed takes the powers of both Ruin and Preservation.

* According to ''[[FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Fuuin no Tsurugi]]'', Saint Elimine never died. As the founder of Etruria and MessianicArchetype among the heroes of the legend, one her mission in life was over she simply ascended to Heaven from a tower in the Etrurian capital, Aquleia. Said place became the Tower of the Saint and the placeholder of her spell book, [[HolyHandGrenade Aureola]], alongside the [[SimpleStaff Saint's Staff.]]

* ''Series/TheElderScrolls'' provides several examples. It's important to keep in mind that most examples get a little [[MindScrew Mind Screwy]], as is the nature of divinity in the ES universe.

** 'Jungle of Stars' had the galaxy fighting a civil war brought about by the two remaining members of a race that had Ascended. One of them stayed behind to rule, and one was left behind to thwart him. The fact that both claim to be the guardian is only ''part'' of the problem...
