** Also worth noting: while supernatural deaths can be fixed with powerful magic, normal deaths can't. ([[CameBackWrong Well, not well, anyway]].) So Buffy's HeroicSacrifice throwing herself into a whirlpool of cosmic power to save the multiverse? Fixable. [[spoiler:Tara]] getting shot by a nerd with delusions of grandeur? Sorry, [[EgyptianMythology Osiris]] would love to help but that's too much for him to handle. apparently.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': The Master. When he was staked, his bones were left behind. To make absolutely sure he's gone, Buffy smashes them to dust with a sledgehammer (but it didn't work). Counting ExpandedUniverse, he's had his soul destroyed twice.

*** ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' gives one sole way back after a death from old age - Reincarnation. This allows a way back after being slain by such creatures as [[SemiDivine the kami]] or certain dragons, which have the ability to artificially age creatures. After the one week grace period passes, however, no mortal magic can bring a soul back.

* In ''Videogame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'', a major plot by a certain antagonist involves this. See, in the dying remnants of the world where people have stopped aging AND giving birth to new people, the souls of the dead still exist inside the Chaos currently swallowing up the world. Those souls are still intact because living folks remember them. The reverse is true as well; the living have memories of the dead because those deceased souls are still intact. Thanks to this, all these dead people could be carried into the new world and reborn just like everyone else. [[spoiler:On Bhunivelze's command, the Order of Salvation seeks to prevent this with the holy clavis, which can destroy each and every one of those dead souls AND people's memories of them, completely negating the cycle. This will prevent the "unclean" from entering the new world and erase the "inconvenient" past.]]

* The backstory for the ''ComicBook/{{Marvel 1602}}'' continuity is that, in a {{dystopia}}n future where America is ruled by a despotic [[PresidentEvil President-For-Life]], Comicnbook/CaptainAmerica joins an underground resistance movement, fails, and is captured. DangerouslyGenreSavvy, the President knows that, this being the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, killing an A-list SuperHero has a spectacularly low probability of sticking. So he attempts to remove him from the timeline entirely. Cap winds up being sent over 400 years back in time, thus altering the timeline and ushering in the 'Age of Marvels' during the reign of Queen Elizabeth the First.

* Only one character from ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' managed to have greater JokerImmunity than Barbas the Fear Demon, and that was Cole. Cole survived many apparent deaths that would have killed off any other demon for real, and this tendency to survive was {{lampshade|Hanging}}d on many occasions. He did finally die, however, from an incident in which he created an AlternateReality where he was not quite so indestructible as he is in the normal reality. History changed in such a way as to keep him from being indestructible, and only then was it possible to vanquish him for real. Cole's only subsequent appearance was when he took on the form of a spiritual ghost who was dead rather than BackFromTheDead as with his previous returns.

** Super Buu (the SuperpoweredEvilSide of Fat Buu) is destroyed after the part of him that embodied the traits of the Kais (Fat Buu) he defeated was removed, leaving only the original Kid Buu. Then Kid Buu himself was wiped out and reincarnated as a human Uub. Even if Uub and Fat Buu merged, the result would not be Super Buu.
