* Battler, from ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', takes Dlanor's [[OneHitKill Red Key]] through the chest at the climax of Ep5. His death gives him as much time as he needed to think back over the mysteries of the novel, realise what he'd been missing, come to understand the Truth of the Game and will himself back to life as one of the most badass and powerful characters in a series filled with already-overpowered characters.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Benjen's watch was ended by the White Walkers, but The Children of the Forest kept him from turning into a wight and gifted him with some sort of augmented or awakened power in the process, as he's able to ignite a weapon, he can foresee the future and is even aware of the actual contents of Bran's visions.
** When Cersei asks [[MadDoctor Qyburn]] if [[OneManArmy Gregor]] [[OneHitKill Clegane]] is going to come back weaker, he's quick to dismiss the notion, implying this trope. Gregor really didn't need the boost, to be honest. Thanks, Qyburn? Gregor confirms this to be the case when he casually ''rips a man's head off with his bare hands''. Cersei proudly rubs in Ellaria Sand's face that this new Clegane is stronger than ever.
** [[spoiler:Viserion gets a hefty boost after being reanimated as the Night King's wight mount. He gains the ability to breathe blue dragonfire powerful enough to single-handedly destroy Eastwatch and blast through the Wall, an 8000 year old ice barricade fortified by magic. ''All by himself''. He can breathe this fire for a far longer period of time than any of his siblings, even the larger Drogon, have been shown to. And on top of that, he's seemingly gotten much faster in the air.]]

* Sacred Eclipse in ''LightNovel/UndefeatedBahamutChronicle'' can [[AllYourPowersCombined use the powers of the other Ragnarok]], but it initially only has access to the CombatTentacles and HealingFactor of Poseidon. Each time it dies and resurrects, it gains access to more powers, and will eventually become unstoppable.

* ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan'', is literally based on this trope "Steve Austin, astronaut. A man barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world's first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better...stronger...faster."

* Brook from ''Manga/OnePiece'' plays this somewhat straight. He died and came back as a skeleton, so, while he isn't explicitly stronger, he is much faster now, a lot harder to kill, and able to do things like run on water or jump distances that are ridiculous even by [[WorldOfBadass One Piece]] standards. This is all explained by skeleton!Brook apparently having the same level of strength that human!Brook did, but vastly lower mass.

** Baron Tamago's Egg-Egg fruit lets him come back from just about anything stronger than before; the base form usually seen is the Egg form; bisect/smash/generally kill him in that, and he'll crack and spill egg yolk, from which Viscount Hiyoko, a chick (as in baby chicken) version of Tamago, is reborn. Viscount Hiyoko is significantly stronger and ''much'' faster, which gives his killer a nasty surprise. And if you kill ''that'', more yolk is spilled, and from that one Count Niwatori, the rooster version that is strongest of all and "a true knight", is reborn. While parties involved in discovering this flee before they can confront Niwatori, WordOfGod says that if he dies in that form, he just goes back to Tamago, restarting the cycle. It's not entirely known how to make any damage stick, but we know he's not completely invincible since [[ScarsAreForever the scar Pedro gave him long ago is still there]], and it's suggested killing him while the yolk's still fresh is perfectly possible.

** In various versions, the Reincarnate spell had the potential to bring somebody back to life literally stronger, as creatures like Orcs or Bugbears (Although they still had to deal with looking in a mirror).

** Etemon in the first series was swallowed up by a black hole caused when he and Metalgreymon first fought, and was apparently given a DisneyVillainDeath. However, he shows up in the Dark Masters Arc having evolved into Metaletemon.
