** Dark Eldar have Doctor Frankenstein-esque 'surgeons' known as [[MadScientist Haemonculi]] (and their 'augmented' Igor-like Wracks) who can reconstruct entire new bodies for those Dark Eldar willing to pay an often esoteric price. The best can, given the client's will is strong enough, regrow an entire body from a charred hand. This being [[CrapsackWorld Warhammer 40,000]], the procedure naturally involves torturing dozens of slaves to death, and the prices can range from slaves to souls to dying breaths. Naturally, the Haemonculi save the best and most reliable methods for themselves; the most senior of their number have died and come back countless times... with [[CameBackWrong varying]] degrees of extra insanity. Some Dark Eldar have actually come to find the whole process exhilarating. To them, death isn't just cheap, it's a ''hobby''.

Urien Rakarth, the oldest and most insane of all Haemonculi, actually ''enjoys'' dying, he can't wait to see what new mutations the process will cause in his body.

* In Despite not actually dying, this is a good description of what [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse poofing and regenerating]] is; when a Gem's body takes too much damage, they give out and the episode Gem has to make a new one. "Reformed" is a good showcase of WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse, it, as Amethyst gets repeatedly killed, poofed, only to regenerate each time and get killed poofed again shortly after.

** {{Lampshaded}} with the death of Marla Jameson. Peter is so wracked with guilt over his failure to save her that he suffers a nightmare where he runs into her, and the following exchange occurs:
-->'''Marla''': Don't worry, Peter. I'll be back.
-->'''Peter''': Wha? How?
-->'''Marla''': I used to build Spider-Slayers. That makes me a super villain. And super villains '''always''' come back.

* In ''ComicBook/DeadNoMoreTheCloneConspiracy'', the Jackal tries convincing Spider-Man, the Rhino and the Lizard that their families and love interests can be brought back to life through cloning. That's just stupid. It's not like anyone would come back as a clone and be remembered as a significant character that would be anything like the original, unless the Jackal was Ben Reilly or something.
