* ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'': Umaril the Unfeathered, main baddie of the Knights of the Nine add-on, is allied with [[OurDemonsAreDifferent the Daedric Lord Meridia]] and can eventually return to the physical world if defeated; it takes the Champion of Cyrodiil, eight holy relics, the blessing of a ninth and defeat in both the physical and spiritual planes to kill Umaril for good.
* ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': the Dragonborn is the only one who can permanently slay Dragons by absorbing their souls upon death which prevents Alduin from resurrecting them in new bodies.
** Alduin, the World Eater dragon, cannot die from merely being defeated in open battle. After doing this, you have to follow him to [[spoiler:Sovngarde, the nordic afterlife]] where you kill him.
** Necromancy spells cause this as reanimated corpses turn to dust after a certain amount of time, preventing them from being raised repeatedly. Decapitation also prevents them from becoming undead in the first place.

Umaril the Unfeathered, main baddie of the Knights of the Nine add-on, Unfeathered]] is allied with [[OurDemonsAreDifferent the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Lord Meridia]] and can eventually Prince]] [[LightIsNotGood Meridia]]. This pact with Meridia allows him to return to the physical mortal world if defeated; it takes slain. In order to finally defeat him, the [[PlayerCharacter Champion of Cyrodiil, Cyrodiil]] must collected eight holy relics, relics forged by the original [[SaintlyChurch Eight Divines]] and the blessing of a ninth and the Ninth, [[DeityOfHumanOrigin Talos]], then defeat him in both the physical and spiritual planes to kill Umaril for good.

*** To fully kill a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragon]], you must first destroy its body and then [[YourSoulIsMine absorb its soul]]. While anyone of sufficient ability can do
the Dragonborn is the former, only one who can permanently slay Dragons by absorbing their souls upon death which prevents Alduin from resurrecting them in new bodies.
** Alduin,
another dragon (or a [[TheChosenOne Dragonborn]]) is capable of the latter. Failure to absorb a dragon's soul leaves open the possibility of it being [[ResurrectiveImmortality resurrected]] in the future.
*** [[BigBad Alduin]], the "[[BeastOfTheApocalypse
World Eater dragon, Eater]]" and "first born" of the dragons, cannot die from merely being defeated in open battle. After doing this, you have to the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] must follow him to [[spoiler:Sovngarde, the nordic afterlife]] into [[WarriorHeaven Sovngarde]], where you kill him.

he has retreated to [[SoulEating consume the souls of the dead]], and slay him there. Even then, the Dragonborn does not absorb his soul, meaning that he will likely return one day to fulfill his duty as world eater.

** Meanwhile, Beerus (and presumably all Gods of Destruction) has the ability to simply delete whatever he wishes. This can range from the dead to other gods. They just... go away, usually screaming. Despite having the Dragon Balls, the show treats it as deadly serious and there seems to be no coming back from destruction.

** Meanwhile, Beerus (and presumably all Gods of Destruction) has the a similar ability to simply delete "destroy" whatever he wishes. This While not as powerful as Zen'O's version, it has similar effects. He has demonstrated that he can range from destroy both the dead to and other gods. They just... go away, usually screaming. Despite having the Dragon Balls, the show treats it as deadly serious and there seems to be no coming back from destruction.

** ''Everyone'' in Future Trunks's home timeline barring Future Trunks himself, Future Mai and Future Zen'O are not only dead but also have their souls and afterlife completely wiped out due to the latter erasing everything in existence within its confines in order to stop [[EldritchAbomination Merged Zamasu's non-corporeal form]] from infecting everything and eventually spreading into other timelines.

to:

** ''Everyone'' Zen'O is stated to have the ability to "erase" anything he wants. This is treated as much more severe than death, since it wipes out the soul along with the body, and is further implied to be irreversible. This happens to ''everyone'' in Future Trunks's home timeline barring Future Trunks himself, Future Mai and Future Zen'O are Zen'O; not only are they dead but they've also have had their souls and afterlife completely wiped out due to the latter Future Zen'O erasing everything in existence within its confines the timeline in order to stop [[EldritchAbomination Merged Zamasu's non-corporeal form]] from infecting everything and eventually spreading into other timelines.

* ''Franchise/{{Warcraft}}'': The rules of resurrection have been retconned repeatedly over the series' lifetime, but as of ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', the following basic rules apply: Mortals only permanently die if their souls are destroyed (one way to do this is to consume them with Fel energy) or if their bodies are completely annihilated, while elementals and demons can only be destroyed on their home planes; if killed in the mortal world, they simply respawn some time later. It is not clear how these rules apply to the Old Gods, at least one of which has been canonically resurrected. Of major characters:

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' used to have the rule that if a person was decapitated, they were permanently dead. However, the much-hated Creative Development team has now [[FirstLawOfResurrection broken that rule]] so many times that it has become a joke.
** Elementals can't be killed in Azeroth, only banished. To truly destroy an elemental requires doing so in their home plane. During the final battle with Ragnaros he attempted to retreat when badly damaged to avoid this fate, but was trapped by the Cenarion Circle and destroyed.
** Demons will simply respawn back in the Nether if killed in the physical world, they have to be killed in the Nether itself to end them personally.

** Super Buu only existed as a combination of Fat Buu and Kid Buu. Since Kid Buu has been reincarnated as Uub, this can never happen again, and Super Buu can't even be revived with the Dragon Balls, as he never had a soul of his own.

** Sadly, this happens to [[spoiler:Aang and the rest of the Past Avatars when Vaatu temporarily kills Raava near the end of Book 2. While Korra is eventually able to extract what's left of Raava from inside of Unavaatu and regain her powers as the Avatar, the souls of the previous Avatars appear to have been permanently erased]].

* In the computer RPG series ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'', the protagonist (and party members) can easily and frequently be resurrected as necessary. There are a few points in the plot where it is possible for a character to be permanently slain--if taken prisoner by Blackthorne in ''VideoGame/UltimaV'', and Dupre during the plot of ''VideoGame/UltimaVIIPartII''. The much maligned ''VideoGame/UltimaIX'' undoes the latter.
