* In the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'', it is quite common with Ultra hosts, as a number of Ultramen specifically choose someone who has died a heroic death to be their host and bring them back as a reward. It's not entirely uncommon for Ultras to die and be resurrected as well, through light, HeroicWillpower, ThePowerOfFriendship, etc. In fact the Land of Light actually has the means to resurrect them (with the Ultra Mother being adept at it). However, this also means that the bad guys can do it too, and monsters also tend to get resurrected by villains on a regular basis as a result.

* Terminus from ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'' has this as his [[LimitBreak Ultimate ability]]. When he dies with his Ultimate ready, he can use it to ressurect himself on the spot instead waiting to respawn back at the home base. Ressurecting also creates an explosion that severely damages any enemy nearby.

* Terminus from ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'' has this was a living stone warrior of the Paladins who was slain during the first uprising against the Magistrate. However, the Magistrate collected his shattered body and resurrected him as an obedient undead brute who can piece himself back together should he ever fall again. This translates into gameplay in the form of his [[LimitBreak Ultimate ability]]. When he dies with his Ultimate ready, he can use it to ressurect himself on the spot instead waiting to respawn back at the home base. Ressurecting also creates an explosion that severely damages any enemy nearby.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'': In Leon's first scenario, Ada gets shot by Annette and falls off a ledge, in which case it's a NeverFoundTheBody, so she would be NotQuiteDead. In Leon's second scenario, she is clearly killed in front of him, blood loss and all. In both scenarios, however, she apparently comes back in a DeusExMachina moment during the penultimate battle with Mr. X, to throw a rocket launcher to the player character. Either way, she returns in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4''.
** ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilTheUmbrellaChronicles'' has her escape from the sewers after said fall as one of the playable chapters. It doesn't show how, but apparently she ''just barely'' survived the fall and starts the mission in critical condition.

** Liquid Snake in ''VideoGame/{{MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' comes back from the dead by possessing Revolver Ocelot. However, by ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'', it's all a ruse. That is, he apparently really did possess Ocelot in ''2'', but Ocelot removed the possessing limb and then brainwashed himself to appear possessed to fool his enemies from then on.

* ''Literature/MoDaoZuShi'': The main character Wei Wuxian [[DeathByOriginStory died in the opening paragraph]] and then came back to life thanks to someone sacrificing their body to him.
