** Lord English achieved complete immortality [[spoiler:by smashing his own God-Tier Clock (which normally determines whether a God-Tier will die due to Heroic or Just circumstances) with the anti-time crowbar juju. It's possible that the cueball which can kill him is the same cueball that was part of his Clock's pendulum, and that is why it can negate his immortality.]]

* The immortals of ''LostOdyssey'' are completely indestructible in the story -- but GameplayAndStorySegregation means they function like FromASingleCell-like immortality during gameplay (can be hurt and [[OnlyMostlyDead "killed"]] during gameplay, but revive on their own).

* Eru from ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' and Tolkien's other works is also this, being an {{Expy}} of {{God}} Himself. The temporal, physical world was created partly for death to exist in the first place, in order to resolve the climactic conflict between Good and Evil.

* ''TheDivineComedy'': Not only God, but all souls are subjected to this kind of immortality, no matter if they are in Hell, Purgatory or Paradise. Their mileage varies about this status.

** SCP-682 is described as a "Hard-to-Destroy Reptile". It's a [[OmnicidalManiac homicidal]], [[HealingFactor regenerating]] dinosaur that [[AdaptiveAbility adapts]] to whatever you throw at it. They haven't tried things like nuclear bombs on it yet, because the last thing they need is a radioactive, red hot homicidal indestructible dinosaur. Between experiments, they keep 682 stored in a tank of concentrated acid, because while that won't ''kill'' it, not having a muscular structure will at least make it hard for it to cause any trouble. Though it still manages to break out of it occasionally. It once fought a creature (created by the Foundation) with the sole descriptive factor of being able to kill 682 completely and utterly. [[BeyondTheImpossible 682 won.]] On other occasions, 682 has shown formidable resistance to being ''written out of reality itself'' and can operate in situations where the fundamental laws of physics are radically different. SCP-738 suggested at one point that it would be capable of killing 682... but the entire human race combined could not [[DealWithTheDevil pay the price necessary]] for such a feat.

SCP-738 suggested at one point that it would be capable of killing 682... but the entire human race combined could not [[DealWithTheDevil pay the price necessary]] for such a feat. Some of the Foundation's staff are even wondering if 682 can truly be considered 'alive'.

* ''Videogame/GuiltyGear'' has Raven. Originally a German soldier in UsefulNotes/TheCrusades, he was mortally wounded and lost consciousness, then had a vision of ravens flying everywhere. He woke up to find his wounds had healed, and ever since then he has been unable to die no matter what. By the time of the games he's nearly two thousand years old but doesn't look a day older than when he first "died". His [[FinishingMove Instant Kill]] in ''Xrd'' has him set himself on fire, grab the opponent and [[TakingYouWithMe burn them both to ashes]], shortly followed by his hand bursting from the ashes as he regenerates himself.

** The S10 finale reveals that [[spoiler:The Mark of Cain]] makes its bearer so strong that even ''Death himself'' doesn't know of any way to kill someone who has it. [[spoiler:The Darkness, the entity that the Mark contains, is probably also an example, given that the combined might of God and the Archangels could not kill it.]]

* In Creator/DavidEddings' ''{{Tamuli}}'' (which retcons it to have also been true in the Elenium), Bhelliom and Klael are immortal beings who vie for control of the planets Bhelliom creates. Their fights can kill gods and destroy planets, but they can never actually harm each other, they can only banish each other from the planet they're currently fighting over. In the same series [[spoiler:Zalasta, who turns out to have secretly been the bad guy all along]] becomes effectively immortal, but not in a good way. He is trapped in a frozen moment of time and set on fire by the troll gods, so he will be burning to death for eternity, but can never age or actually die.
** In Literature/TheBelgariad and Malloreon the remaining "prophecy", essentially the sentient spirit of the universe, fits this trope. UL, father of the gods, probably does as well, as would the king of Hell who is implied to have power close to that of UL. The other gods are more open to debate. One is killed, but this is only because he was a mistake to start with. Whether any god could be killed when the universe itself isn't trying to get rid of them is never addressed.

* {{Deadpool}} and {{Thanos}}. In addition to being insanely tough to kill in the first place whether it's due to a HealingFactor or being a NighInvulnerable PhysicalGod, both have at one point in their lives been inflicted with curses that rendered them untouchable to the Abstract Entity of Death. They could not die because Death itself could not claim them. Immortality doesn't get much more complete than the metaphysical concept of Death itself having no power over you. In their case it's a curse because they are both in love with Death.
