* In ''Literature/TheTwoBrothers'', a huntsman saves a princess from a dragon, only to be murdered by another man who plans on StealingTheCredit and claiming the StandardHeroReward. He's brought back to life by his LoyalAnimalCompanion, a hare, which races off to the secret place where grows a magic plant that can revive the dead. (Then there are a couple of incidents where the story [[DeathIsCheap casually kills off]] either the huntsman or his brother then revives him immediately by the same method.)

* A boss in ''Franchise/FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia The Dark Dragon and the Sword of Light]]'' (and its remakes), Camus who was victim of HonorBeforeReason and MyCountryRightOrWrong, appears as Sirius, who can be recruited to your side in ''Mystery of the Emblem'' (curiously, the player doesn't really need to kill him in the Super Famicom version to complete the level, its possible to just distract him and [[InstantWinCondition seize the gate]]).

** Speaking of Ted, he remains dead up through ''ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}}''; the new timeline effectively pushes a reset button on his life, so when he shows up he's years younger and the events leading to his death never happened.



** The book's tie-in to ''Comicbook/AgeOfUltron'' also left a huge Lampshade-Hanging on this. The entire team except for Sue end up killed by Ultron's invasion, but Johnny's [[VideoWills video will]] tells the viewers not to worry and assures them that the team will be back from the grave in short order. And sure enough, Sue and {{Wolverine}} use a TimeyWimeyBall to punch the ResetButton ''hard'', resurrecting the team and all the other heroes who died.

* A few previously dead characters are apparently being revived in thanks to ''ComicBook/{{Convergence}}''. Some, like Kole, are brought back only because they've been pulled from their timelines before their canonical deaths, while others, like Lian Harper, seem to be flat out resurrected.

* [[spoiler:Winifred Burkle]] returns from the dead in Angel and Faith, Season 10, even though she was believed to be DeaderthanDead for years.

* 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.
