* Done a few times in ''Series/Warehouse13''. First, Artie is killed in an explosion but then rematerializes thanks to the Phoenix giving his death to someone else. Then three characters die in the Season 3 finale only to be brought back thanks to TimeTravel (although one of them dies almost immediately anyway). TheDragon of Season 3 also has this ability thanks to [[spoiler:Johann Maelzel's Metronome]]. He suffers NoOntollogicalInertia when Claudia [[spoiler:stops the metronome]] and later uses it to revive [[spoiler:Jinx]] who is, at first, dependent on the artifact to stay alive but later is free of it..

* The further you go in ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'', the more likely you'll encounter postmortem forms of previous bosses, in which usually they are [[EyeScream missing eyes]] and/or [[BodyHorror are rotting away]]. Three unlockable characters are also reanimated versions of Isaac, with [[spoiler:??? and the Keeper]] being his corpses, and [[spoiler:the Lost being his soul]].

* In WebVideo/{{Decker}}, Kington is killed by the First Lady near the end of ''Decker Unclassified''. He is however brought back to life in the first episode of Decker Unsealed thanks to an untested treatment which also makes him look younger.

** The Master does this at least four times. In an early comic (he tries possessing Xander); in the {{Xbox}} game (possesses Angel); in the book "Portal Through Time" (really briefly due to a minion monkeying around with time); and the Season 8 comics (the Seed of Wonder brings him back so he can act as its protector).

* This is a staple of ''Videogame/{{Destiny}}''.
** The game ''begins'' with the player being resurrected by their Ghost, a tiny drone who carries [[RealityWarper the Light]] of the Traveler, a benevolent SufficientlyAdvancedAlien. Nearly every Guardian, it turns out, is resurrected from someone who was alive during the GoldenAge who died during [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the Collapse]]. Furthermore, the Ghost can resurrect their Guardian indefinitely as long as their reserves of Light remain intact, to the point that specialized tactics and weapons are needed to truly kill them, usually in the form of draining their reserves of Light or destroying their Ghost.
** The Hive are frighteningly good at this technique, to the point where killing any of the Ascendant Hive permanently is incredibly hard, as destroying their physical body does not destroy their souls, and the reality-twisting {{magitek}} of the Hive lets them do things like create "oversouls" that [[SoulJar store their souls safely outside of their bodies]], or keep their souls in "throne worlds" where the Ascendant Hive is the master of the realm. For example, the only way to kill Crota or his father Oryx is to lead a team into the throne worlds of those Hive deities and slay them there, which will permanently end them... but even so, there's the possibility that they may return or live on. The Touch of Malice exotic scout rifle, for example, is implied to be [[SoulJar another vessel for Oryx's soul]] intended to eventually merge him with whoever wields it.
** The [[DeusEstMachina Vex]] have their own method of resurrecting: if an Axis Mind - a part of the Vex network that contains all instructions for a particular project and thus serve as their "leaders" - is destroyed, the Vex simply use their TimeTravel technology to reach back and yank a slightly earlier version of that Axis Mind to replace it. One of the game's strike missions involves taking out an Axis Mind that specializes in doing this to prevent them from resuming their HostileTerraforming of Venus.

* It's eventually revealed at the end of the third season (and given more detail in the fourth season) of ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' that Ofdensen did indeed play this trope straight and not the FakingTheDead trope. He had to die in order to become the Dead Man in the prophecy, and the Church of the Black Klok revived him.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "Off Colors", Lars dies[[note]] Lars's death is the only on-screen death in the entire show thus far, making it that much more shocking[[/note]] after being caught in the center of an explosion, getting slammed into a wall and then falling thirty feet to the ground. Steven starts to cry over his body, and discovers his [[HealingHands healing powers]] include the ability to resurrect through his tears. [[CameBackStrong Side effect]], Lars is now pink, his heartbeat is awfully slow, he doesn't need to eat anymore and his hair is a portal to Lion's PocketDimension. All of which implies Lion was a regular animal that died and had Rose do the same for.
