* Friendly innkeeper Serenity comes down with a particularly severe case of this in ''VideoGame/DragonFable''. Baron Valtrith kidnaps her and uses an ArtifactOfDoom to destroy her soul, forcing a Doom Weapon into her body to posses her corpse. She isn't just killed, [[CessationOfExistence her soul has been destroyed]] (An important point to make, since DeathIsCheap and sometimes lets people come back to life in exchange for a favor). Valtrith makes a point of saying that she doesn't exist anymore and there's nothing left of her to save. According to WordOfGod, the destruction of Serenity's soul is so absolute that if an alternate universe version of Serenity visited the DragonFable world, she'd cease to exist too.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', during the Horus Heresy, when the Emperor of Mankind confronted his traitor son Horus, he struck Horus with so much psychic power that Horus' own soul was annihilated. Normally, on death a human's soul is sent to the Warp (and thus powerful servants of Chaos are forever reborn, being bound to their particular Chaos God) but with the destruction of his soul, there was nothing of Horus left, making it impossible for the Chaos Gods to bring him back.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' this trope is the ''entire purpose'' of the Grey Warden order. Archdemons (corrupted gods who unite the [[AlwaysChaoticEvil darkspawn]] [[TheLegionsOfHell horde]]) body jack the nearest darkspawn upon death, reviving almost instantly. Grey Wardens intentionally introduce a modified version of the darkspawn taint into themselves so that when one of ''them'' takes the final blow, the Archdemon will attempt to possess its killer rather than a real darkspawn, [[HeroicSacrifice an act that annihilates both the dragon and the Warden's souls.]] Without this, the only way to end a Blight would be to kill every darkspawn in existence.
* The ancient magister-turned darkspawn Corypheus first appeared in the ''Legacy'' [[DownloadableContent DLC]] for ''VideoGame/DragonAge2'', where he was released from his TailorMadePrison by Hawke and subsequently killed. However, thanks to his [[BodySurf body surfing]] ability, he was able to survive by taking over a nearby Grey Warden. He then returned as the main villain for ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', where he attempted to [[AGodAmI ascend to godhood]] and rule over Thedas. The Inquisitor destroyed his [[TheDragon false Archdemon]], which disrupted Corypheus' ability to take over a new body, and then opened a Fade Rift inside of the would-be god, which consumed him entirely. Just to clear up any confusion, the World of Thedas Volume II lorebook [[WordOfGod then stressed that Corypheus is permanently dead]].

** Applies to everyone in Future Trunks's home timeline barring Future Trunks himself, Future Mai and Future Zen'O 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.

** 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.

Despite the similar sounding name, not related to HarderThanHard, although the attempt to kill someone Deader Than Dead is by no means easy.

easy. Related to KilledOffForReal, which results when the audience would have expected the Deader Than Dead character to come back.

* In general, resurrection on C'hou in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone'' is [[[DeathIsCheap cheap'n'easy]], or at least doable if not. However, there are a few forms of death that are permanent—you can't be resurrected from them no matter what. The one we hear about is being thrown off the Flying Island of Tipaan (aka the Big Drop)—which is why Paul objects strenuously when the Tipaanese plan to send the murderous Animals over the side. All of the people the Animals killed have been or will be resurrected, so ActualPacifist Paul sees no reason why they should be permakilled. The Tipaanese are cowed by him and agree to transfer the Animals to the Circle jail.
