* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', this is a trait of the et'Ada, the "original spirits" who formed from the raw energy[[note]]the main CreationMyth of the series' [[AnthropomorphicPersonification personifies]] this "energy" as the "[[PiecesOfGod spilled blood]]" of GodOfGods Anu (stasis/order/light) and TheAntiGod Padomay (change/chaos/darkness).[[/note]] of the early universe. Depending on the actions of these et'Ada during the creation of Mundus, the mortal plane, they would become either [[OurGodsAreDifferent the Aedra or the Daedra]]. To note:
** The Aedra (meaning "our ancestors" in [[ClassicalTongue Old Aldmeris]]) sacrificed large parts of their divine power to create Mundus, and have thus lost their Complete Immortality. There were originally many Aedra, the majority of whom sacrificed so much during creation that they died, becoming the "Earthbones" (essentially the laws of nature/physics/reality that a functioning world requires). Of the survivors, the eight most prominent have been grouped together as the Eight Divines, who are worshiped in the [[SaintlyChurch primary religion]] of Tamriel. As they've sacrificed much of their power and even their true immortality, they can be killed. (According to some versions of the myth, they are already dead but "dream" that they are alive, allowing them some influence over the world they created.) As such, they prefer [[InMysteriousWays a lighter touch]] in dealing with mortal affairs and prefer acting [[MissionFromGod through mortal agents]] whenever possible. They generally save any acts of direct DivineIntervention for the most dire circumstances to avert TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.
** The Daedra ("not our ancestors") did not make any sacrifice during creation, and thus retain their full divine power and Complete Immortality. If a Daedra manifests in a mortal form on Mundus and that mortal form is slain, their spirit simply returns to [[{{Hell}} Oblivion]] to reform. The Daedric Princes are the 17 most prominent and powerful Daedric beings. While they have been [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu battered, beaten]], [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu banished]], and even [[HijackingCthulhu fundamentally changed]], ''nothing'' in the setting has ever been able to actually ''kill'' one, not even the other Daedric Princes.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the ending of the main quest strongly implies that this is the case for [[BigBad Alduin]], the [[DragonsAreDemonic draconic]] BeastOfTheApocalypse. Unlike standard [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]], who have ResurrectiveImmortality as long as their [[YourSoulIsMine souls aren't absorbed]] by another dragon or Dragonborn, the [[PlayerCharacter Last Dragonborn]] does not absorb Alduin's soul [[spoiler:following his final defeat in [[WarriorHeaven Sovngarde]]]]. This strongly implies that he will return in the future to fulfill his duty as [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt World-Eater]] and cannot truly be killed.

* Cars from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' Part 2. After he wears the Stone Mask with the Red Stone of Asia he becomes a god, immortal and incapable of aging. He's completely immune to Hamon and the sun - the Pillar Men's only weaknesses - as well. The only way to stop him was to launch him into space [[AndIMustScream to drift for all eternity.]]
** Notorious B.I.G., Carne's Stand from Part 5, is utterly invincible, because [[spoiler:the trigger for its emergence was its user dying, and Stands can only be defeated by defeating their user, leaving it with no vulnerability]]. Eventually the heroes just fling it into the ocean, where it occasionally attacks passing freighters.

* The [[PhysicalGod Great Old Ones]] from Creator/HPLovecraft's ''Franchise/CthulhuMythos'', or at least Cthulhu, ''may'' have this form of immortality. In ''Call of Cthulhu'', [[RammingAlwaysWorks Cthulhu gets a boat driven through his skull]], [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu turning his head into green paste]]. [[GoodThingYouCanHeal It reforms pretty much instantly]]. [[DependingOnTheWriter According to some writers]], [[TakesOneToKillOne they can be killed by another Great Old One (or other godlike entity)]] while other sources state that they are completely unkillable. Lovecraft himself wasn't clear about this, like everything he said about the Mythos.

The FUG, who want to destroy Zahard and the others, are very keen to find those very specific things that can kill them -- no-one in the Tower can, so it has to be someone from outside it...

** Nyarlathotep is the embodiment of humanity's evil, along with Philemon, the embodiment opposite of Nyarlathotep, are impossible to ever kill, due to both of them being an undeniable aspect of humanity, and so long as a single human exists, they cannot die.
** Erebus is a being similar to Nyarlathotep and Philemon, but he embodies humanity's desire for death. Erebus sees to make contact with Nyx to enact the Fall, which would wipe out all of humanity. The protagonist of Persona 3 sacrificed their soul to become the Great Seal that keeps Erebus from Nyx. Erebus has been destroyed in the epilogue chapter of Persona 3 FES: The Answer, and has also been destroyed on a yearly basis by Elizabeth as seen in Persona 4 Arena. However, it was stated repeatedly that Erebus would continue to revive itself every year, and can only cease to exist if humanity stops wishing for death.
** Nyx is an entity that is the very embodiment of Death. Unlike other beings in Persona, who are embodiments of humanity's collective unconsciousness, Nyx is a being that existed before humanity, and ultimately exists outside of reality. When Nyx's awakening was at hand, her avatar in the form of Ryoji stated that Nyx cannot be stopped or defeated, regardless of how much strength or power one has, as she is a universal force that cannot be stopped. However, the protagonist of Persona 3 managed to return Nyx to sleep by becoming the Great Seal, preventing Nyx from hearing the call from Erebus, humanity's desire for death.

** 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. [[spoiler:He's still killed by Zen'O, who as the supreme ruler of all universes presumably has powers greater than those of even the Super Dragon Balls.]]

* [[WhoWantsToLiveForever Fujiwara no Mokou]] and [[LivingForeverIsAwesome Kaguya Houraisan]] from ''Videogame/{{Touhou}}'' are immortal in the truest sense. While it functions somewhat like FromASingleCell and mostly like ResurrectiveImmortality, they literally cannot die. Due to the laws of reality in Gensokyo when someone enters an area desegnated as the afterlife, where people can come and go, they count as dead. Mokou and Kaguya near literally run into a wall they cannot pass. Yuyuko has the power to cause anything to die at will. The two immortals are completely unaffected. They will probably exist til the end of time. Others ''could'' share in by temporarily killing either and devouring their liver, but few (even in Gensokyo) are mad enough to try the immortality the Hourai Elixir they drank brings. The way the Elixir works, even if you went back in time to kill them before they drank the elixir it wouldn't work. It's implied the Elixir was created by distilling Kaguya's power over eternity into a liquid, removing the users from the cycle of life and death completely, not just from when they drank it.
