* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': Asuka got mortally wounded during the final battle, and she died. Before her soul was definitely gone, though, Yui absorbed her and Shinji’s souls into the core of [[HumongousMecha Unit-01]] and kept them in there until they were ready to return to the physical world.

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'' the beloved little sister Lisana died two years before the story began. They ''found'' her body. They even ''buried it''. DeathByOriginStory was the only way you ''could'' die in ''Fairy Tail'', at least until she turned out to just be alive elsewhere.

** A more traditional example shows up with [[{{Necromancer}} Keyes]] of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Tartaros]], whose ultimate goal was creating a corpse that acted as it did in life. He succeeded with Silver, [[spoiler: aka [[LukeIAmYourFather Gray's father]]]].
** Neinheart of the [[PratorianGuard Spriggan 12]] has a unique spin on this concept. His magic, "Histoire of Corpses", allows him to look into his opponent's memories to learn about their past foes and loved ones, who he can then [[CreatingLife recreate with all their original memories, powers, and personalities under his control]]. This includes ''dead'' people, like [[spoiler: [[AnIcePerson Ul]], [[PlayingWithFire Zancrow]], [[GreenThumb Azuma]], [[AbsurdlySharpBlade Ezel]], the previously-mentioned Keyes, [[TortureTechnician Kyouka]], and [[TheArchmage Master Hades]]]].

* This is ''{{Comicbook/Moon Knight}}'s'' origin. Although [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane it varies]] whether the god Khonshu is real and brought him back, or Spector was just NotQuiteDead and really BadAss.

* Frequently done on {{Soap Opera}}s. Sometimes the audience knows while other characters don't, other times, everyone is clueless. While this is typically limited to certain types of deaths--plane crashes, explosions, drownings, an especially egregious example is that of a woman who clearly died in her husband's arms after being shot, yet was resurrected a few years later. Another example would be Den Watts in ''EastEnders'' died (with a gun concealed in a bunch of daffodils) only to be brought back years later as a UsefulNotes/{{ratings}} stunt.

* During the ''Comicbook/{{Siege}}'' event, Loki realizes that he's been making a massive mistake: He wanted to make Asgard greater than ever, but let his hatred of Thor get in the way of that. In a last ditch effort to stop the Void, he uses the Norn stones to empower the New Avengers to give them a fighting chance. When this doesn't work, Loki takes the full blunt of the Void, dying while tearfully apologizing to Thor. Fourtunately, Thor brings him back to life, now as a child with no memory of his evil deeds or his previous life beyond the age of twelve, but still has the guilt of what happened, with Thor's encouragement he becomes a kid hero, and performs ''multiple'' [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments Of Awesome]].

** Kamina pulls this '''twice''', three if you count the movie. First, he died in the battle with Thymilph, momentarily brought himself back to life on pure Spiral power to perform the very first Giga Drill Breaker of the series, then he died and stayed dead. Second, he came back from the dead to save everyone from the LotusEaterMachine, and third -- in the movie -- he was reincarnated as Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
