* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, as seen in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] cannot be killed by merely slaying their physical forms. While anyone of sufficient ability is capable of doing this, the dragon can be [[ResurrectiveImmortality resurrected]] by another dragon unless its [[YourSoulIsMine soul is absorbed]] by another dragon (or Dragonborn). In fact, [[TopGod Akatosh]], the "[[MonsterProgenitor father]]" of dragons, specifically created the [[TheChosenOne Dragonborn]], rare mortals gifted with [[DragonsAreDivine draconic Aedric souls]], to serve as [[HunterOfHisOwnKind natural predators]] for the dragons.

* ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' allows characters to easily respawn on their home plane for a relatively cheap cost in their limited actions per day. In lore, the explanation is that the presiding death deity is just as invested in keeping the war going as the rest of the pantheon and doesn't hold onto souls for long. Roleplays in this setting regularly go into the [[FridgeHorror implications]] of the fact that everyone in the Nexus is trapped there and the only way to truly die is of apathy or despair.

* Deconstructed and played for horror in the episode ''Recap/StargateSG1S6E6Abyss''. After Baal captures Oneill, Baal tortures him for information by killing him over and over using various methods and then resurrecting him using the sarcophagus. It gets to the point that Jack would prefer to stay dead rather than be revived.

So common is this trope in {{superhero}} comics that many other sources refer to it as Comic Book Death, to the point where TheOtherWiki even has [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_book_death a page]] on the subject. Comics have [[HowToCheatDeath many means]] to undo death, often involving OpeningACanOfClones. Usually the only characters in comics to stay dead are those involved in a DeathByOriginStory. If returning from death is abused repeatedly, then TheyKilledKennyAgain. Contrast with ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated.

* Marvel's [[Comicbook/UltimateMarvel Ultimate Universe]] is regarded as the prime example of "AllDeathsFinal," if you don't count Hammerhead, the Green Goblin (twice), Gwen Stacy, Doctor Doom, Mr. Fantastic, Thor, Iron Man, Valkyrie, Electro, Spider-Man, [[Main/LongList and a lot, lot more.]] Let's change that to "the prime ''relative'' example."

** Later, when Piccolo traps himself, Goten, and Trunks in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber with Super Buu, where they will be [[AndIMustScream stranded forever until they die]], the Z-Fighters aren't too concerned, pointing out that all they have to do is wait for Buu to kill all three of them, and then they can wish them back. [[MamaBear Bulma]] is ''not'' amused:
-->'''Bulma''': Are you even listening to yourself?! "Relax, because they're trapped with a monster that could kill them?!" They were ''children''! They should have ''never'' been made to fight! You grown men left the fate of the Earth in their hands! I hope you're ashamed!

** [[spoiler: Invoked by Zeref, who worked to resurrect Natsu, his younger brother, who was killed by a dragon, and ultimately succeeds. The catch, however, is that the god of death doesn't suffer people who invoke this trope very well, and [[WalkingWasteland curses]] Zeref as punishment.]]

* Death becomes slightly more expensive in ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'', as each death now comes with a price: a certain amount of Silver Eagles (the in-game currency) depending on the difficultly level. There's no penalty if you run out though. Unless, of course, you're playing on 1999 mode, in which case death now costs 100 Silver Eagles, and being unable to pay results in having to reload your last save - without a manual save option.
