* The Ellimist and Crayak, from Creator/KAApplegate's ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' series. While not all-powerful, they are quite god-like, often use the Yeerks and the Animorphs as [[CosmicChessGame "chess pieces"]] in their game, and have been living for thousands if not millions of years.

While it's not certain just how old they are, Ellimist ascends before the extinction of the dinosaurs, and he and Crayak had been fighting for an unknown amount of time before that. In addition, both were already quite old when their war began, though we do not know just how old.

*** Does that count though? I mean, theoredically if something were to blow up the entire planet he'd still be killed, so it's still possible, albeit really really difficult.



* On ''Series/{{Misfits}}'', this is Nathan's power [[spoiler: until he sells it for twenty grand and gets [[RealityWarper minor reality warping]] instead]].

** After being asked if Lord English was a [[Franchise/{{Ultima}} Lord British]] {{Expy}}, [[WordOfGod Andrew said]] [[ThrowItIn that he]] ''wasn't'' (instead just named that to keep the Felt's pool theme). The result? "[[AscendedFanon He's rumored]] [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003139 to be killable]] [[LordBritishPostulate only through a number of glitches and exploits in spacetime]]".

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Zamasu achieves this by wishing on the Super Dragon Balls. Unlike Garlic Jr. who seems to be indestructible, he can be harmed but regenerates instantly. He exploits this fact in combat, allowing his partner to attack ''through'' him, knowing he'll be fine.

* [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy Summers]] is this as a side effect of being yanked out of heaven by her friends in the series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer / Series/StarTrekVoyager crossover series "[[https://www.tthfanfic.org/Series-3181 A Path All Her Own]]." In the story, being immortal has allowed her to join and leave and then rejoin Starfleet multiple times using multiple false names, but this time -- the first in a long time -- she joined as herself.

** The being with code-name "DRAGON", aka Aiwass, seems to have this as well. "[[AmbiguousGender It]]" is an EldritchAbomination almost beyond comprehension, capable of {{No Sell}}ing almost everything [[spoiler:Accelerator]] throws at it. And the one attack that ''does'' affect it only works because the attack damages the system necessary for Aiwass to manifest in the physical world, lack of said system will erase Aiwass from existence. Even then it simply wills itself back to existence. It states that even if it dies, it will manifest again in 1000 or 10000 years, since it is not of this world to begin with.

* [[ComicBook/{{Superman}} Doomsday]] from DC. Stronger and tougher than Superman, has AdaptiveAbility against anything that does manage to injure him, rapidly regenerates and even if you do "kill", he can regenerate back to life. In theory, he becomes more and more this trope with time as you can't kill him the same way twice.
* ComicBook/{{Lobo}}. Not only does he have a HealingFactor that allows him to regenerate out of [[FromASingleCell a pool of his own blood]], he has been banned from entering either Heaven or Hell, or to be more specific, every eternal places like Valhalla.
* Mammoth Mogul from the ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' comics, is essentially an AlternateCompanyEquivalent of Vandal Savage. When he finally realizes he can't beat Sonic, he decides to simply wait until Sonic is too old to oppose him.
* ComicBook/GilgameshTheImmortal is a king of ancient Uruk who met an alien that made him completely immortal as them, using his alien ImmortalityInducer. He then goes across all human history: Assyria, ancient Egypt, ancient Rome, Crusades, middle ages, conquest of the Americas, Napoleonic wars, WWI, WWII, cold war, nuclear holocaust, AndTheAdventureContinues...

* In the MarvelUniverse Amatsu-Mikaboshi was revealed to be this, being as it is the AnthropomorphicPersonification of the nothingness before Creation. It is not only older than the universe, it is older than the universe before that and the one before that, stretching back to the Beginning.
* In a more limited sense, the members Cosmic Compass who represent the {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of key universal concepts, such as Eternity, Infinity, Oblivion and Death, could arguably qualify, since they always exist so long as the universe does and when a new one comes along will exist in that one also, so though they do ultimately die when it ends they may also be reborn. Each of them are aspects of identical entities who operate on an even grander multiversal scale.

Killing them is about as possible as killing laws of physics. [[spoiler:That said, the Endless can be 'killed' in a fashion; at least their current versions/incarnations can (with great difficulty).

They drank a magical potion--by accident--and now they can't die no matter how hard they try, and have an unbearable stench that makes them unable to come ashore, except for a brief period every seven years when the stench fades.

** Fitting the trope better, the true immortals in the franchise are [[CosmicEntity Outer Gods]], the (unwitting) creators of the universe(s). While some of them (such as Nyarlathotep) can have their physical avatars be destroyed, [[FightingAShadow their true existence are completely unaffected]], [[OneWingedAngel and they can just instantly appear again with another avatar]] ([[ResurrectiveImmortality if not reusing the destroyed one]]).

* Elves in Creator/MCAHogarth's ''Literature/TheBloodLadders Trilogy'' go beyond simply being TheAgeless and also have a HealingFactor that makes it hard to kill them without cutting them to pieces and burning the pieces. However, as they get older their immortality uses up more and more of their innate magic, most of the race can't do more than light a candle without draining magic vampirically.

** There's some crossover with ResurrectiveImmortality as well. The discreet entity that is Lord Foul ''can'' be killed, though doing so requires a tremendous amount of power and effort, but the cosmic principles he embodies are eternal, and eventually can always coalesce into Lord Foul the Despiser once again.

Most mummies have ResurrectiveImmortality, and can be brought back to life even if their bodies are destroyed, summoned into a new body, unless all trace of their existence is erased. The Deceived take it a step further, as even if they're completely forgotten, Fate will still bring them back when the stars are right, summoning them into an intact corpse. If no corpse is available, then a fragment will do. And if all trace of humanity is wiped from existence, they'll ''still'' get called back by the echoes of their [[IKnowYourTrueName True Name]] throughout the cosmos.

None of this seems to bother him, [[spoiler:although the latter version became RetGone after Superman [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong went back in time and stopped the cause of the disaster.]]]]

As such, the protagonists [[WeaponsThatSuck trap them]] and place them in the [[ContainmentField Containment Unit]] to dispose of them. The cartoon once in a while featured a few ghosts and demons get their Complete Immortality revoked in various, often spectacular ways, often through PhlebotinumBreakdown (both accidental and deliberate), getting their faces stuck in the barrel of the latest prototype BFG, or, getting eaten by [[AlwaysABiggerFish something big and unpleasant]].

** The Judge can't be killed. He can be cut, but since he can kill people just by being near him the first time he walked the Earth it took an entire army to cut off his limbs and head -- and they remained mobile afterwards, and reattached themselves instantly when placed back together. Buffy used a bazooka to break him into a lot more pieces (and then advised her friends to keep the pieces apart).
