* In ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', the BigBad, Immortan Joe, ''tells'' his followers that this happened to him to ensure their fantatical devotion to him as a divine figure. His [[{{Mooks}} War Boys]] have the belief that he has the power to take them to the WarriorHeaven of Valhalla if they [[MartyrdomCulture die gloriously for him]].

* ''Literature/{{Tasakeru}}'': Stalker comes back from the dead thanks to a symbiotic fusion with a [[GiantSpider spider]]. He later brings [[BigBad N'Ktane]] back, but the process only gives her a solid body inside the [[EvilTowerOfOminousness Black Rose Tower]].

** From the "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" episodes:
-->'''Kent Brockman''': At 3 p.m. Friday, local autocrat C. Montgomery Burns was shot following a tense confrontation at town hall. Burns was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was then transferred to a better hospital where doctors [[StatusQuoIsGod upgraded his condition to "alive"]].



* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' has James Woods being brought back to life by scientists using space age tech after being stabbed in the back in a previous episode. As a Hollywood actor, he was entitled to top-notch medical care not available to others. Apparently he's ''that'' famous.

* {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in ''Comicbook/{{X-Factor}}'', where Siryn gets the news that her father, Banshee, one of the X-Men, is dead. She simply doesn't believe it; the X-Men come Back from the Dead more than anyone else in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse (once the entire current team sacrificed themselves only to be resurrected at the end of the issue), so she's sure he's just [[HesJustHiding pretending to be dead]] as part of some plan. In ''Comicbook/UncannyAvengers'' he does return [[CameBackWrong as one of the Apocalypse Twins' Horsemen of Death]].

* Lampshaded in ''[[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} Astonishing X-Men]]''. After Kitty finds out that Colossus isn't really dead, she warns him that if he's a clone, robot, ghost, or from an alternate universe, she's okay with that, but if he's a shapeshifter or an illusionist, she'll kill him. Obviously, this happens a lot.

* ''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.

** BigBad Yhwach has a special technique called Auswahlen that can redistribute the power and souls of any Quincy. He is even able to use it to distribute the power of his weaker underlings to revive and empower those whom he deems stronger, even if they were killed.

* 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]]]].
