* ''Anime/{{Gekiganger 3}}'': [[TheLancer Joe Umitsubame]] comes back from the dead, piloting the original Gekiganger 3 robot, to help the rest of the team defeat the show's BigBad. A character watching this episode comments on the fact that people [[ThisIsReality in real life]] (like the dead Gai Daigouji and Tsukomo Shiratori) don't come back from the dead, another example of the show's contrast of ''Gekiganger'''s idealistic worldview and the "reality" of ''Nadesico''. Ironically, in that very same episode, the apparently-dead Admiral turned out to be NotQuiteDead.

* Happens frequently in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', with medical science able to bring people back moments after death if the deceased's head is placed in a special bag with nanites as of the start of the strip, and improving drastically through its run. One LampshadeHanging of this tendency is when one character describes a foe as DeaderThanDisco, only for another to point out [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2011-08-18 that disco has come back almost a dozen times in the last three centuries]]. When does the supposedly dead guy come back? [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2011-08-19 The very next strip]].

*** Kamina gets a ''third'' one in the second movie--circumstances cause Team Dai-Gurren to lose the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, then combine their respective Tengen Toppa Gunmen into the absurdly huge Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann... a gigantic flaming blue Spiral Energy avatar of Kamina himself that is so large that it qualifies as a majority percentage of the visible universe. WordOfGod is that this is not just another mecha, but the literal reincarnation of Kamina himself, returned to fight for Team Dai-Gurren one last time.

* ''ComicBook/{{Family}}'': Gio and his associates got together to wack his older brother Silver for his indiscriminate murder of made guys, but he just [[NeverFoundTheBody disappeared in an explosion]]. He returns years later for revenge, apparently not having aged. Gio does ask him how it's even possible, but Silver notes that he shouldn't be so surprised that in a group of people with superpowers, one should be able to defy death.

** This happens a lot in the show. Mary Winchester makes an appearance in "Home" and "What is and What Should Never Be." Jess also comes back for the latter episode. [[spoiler:Mary comes back FOR REAL in the season 11 finale, having revived by the Darkness for redeeming her. With this, everyone who posseses the name Winchester has been back.]]

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** [[spoiler:Jon Snow was killed by his fellow Night's Watch members in the Season 5 finale. Season 6 had him revived by Melisandre, most notable in a series where AnybodyCanDie.]]
** Beric Dondarrion has an astounding record of 7 revivals, by his close friend Thoros of Mar. [[spoiler: He's still alive as in Season 6, while his book character died reviving Catelyn Stark.]]
** [[spoiler: The Hound, and Benjen Stark (Ned's only surviving brother) pull off spectacular ones as well. The Hound was OnlyMostlyDead and was helped back to recovery by a Septon, and Benjen Stark CameBackStrong. To elaborate, Benjen was actually killed by a White Walker, and left for dead, while the Children of the Forest saving him the same way they created the White Walkers. He's dead enough not to go back south, and also alive enough, to have his own personality, conscience and pull a BigDamnHeroes, unlike the wights.]]

** There's Roberto, who in "The Six Million Dollar Mon" was arrested and promptly executed via [[CruelAndUnusualDeath electromagnetism]]. When Hermes wanted a robot brain transplant to complete his new robot body, Farnsworth inadvertently dug up Roberto's and after Zoidberg put Hermes' brain back in his old body, the empty robot took Roberto's brain. Roberto terrorized the crew for about a minute before he ate a piece of Hermes' skin and melted from it being so spicy due to [[ChekhovsGun Hermes' diet of extremely hot food]]. He then makes an appearance in the show's penultimate episode "Stench and Stenchibility" with no explanation whatsoever.

* 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 ''Series/EastEnders'' died (with a gun concealed in a bunch of daffodils) only to be brought back years later as a UsefulNotes/{{ratings}} stunt.
