* In the last episode of [[AvatarTheLastAirbender Avatar; the Last Airbender]] book 2, Aang is struck by Azula's lightning. Luckily, [[spoiler:Katara has some spirit water that she uses to heal him]], but it doesn't work right away and we don't learn [[spoiler:that he survived until the first episode of the next season.]]

* In the 1999 animated version of ''WesternAnimation/TheKingAndI'', this happens to the King after his hot air balloon goes down. If you're asking what a hot air balloon has to do with ''The King and I'', you obviously haven't seen a film that takes TheyJustDidntCare and the AnimationAgeGhetto to a whole new level.

* [[ZigZaggingTrope Zigzagged]] with ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}} [=ThunderCats (2011)=]]]'' Jaga. TheObiWan and CourtMage of Thundera, initially performs a YouShallNotPass, seemingly dying in the attempt, allowing Thundera's young king Lion-O and his allies to flee as the city is invaded by the forces of BigBad Mumm-Ra. Jaga is soon revealed to instead be Mumm-Ra's prisoner, tortured for information on a mystical GreatBigBookOfEverything's location. Mumm-Ra eventually forces the issue by performing a YourSoulIsMine, imprisoning TheDisembodied Jaga in a SoulJar that will lead them to the book. In a last-ditch effort to prevent Mumm-Ra from getting it, Jaga performs a magical HeroicSacrifice that shatters his soul jar, dissipates him, and sends Mumm-Ra fleeing, leaving Jaga's allies to grieve his loss ''again''. Soon after, when Lion-O closely examines the book, it is revealed as {{Magitek}} that draws Lion-O's soul inside, where he meets Jaga, now serving as a SpiritAdvisor[=/=]VirtualGhost. When Lion-O asks if he's alive, Jaga gives an [[CrypticConversation opaque non-answer]].

* Happens to ''both'' of the main characters in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: Mask of Light'': first, Jaller [[TakingTheBullet sacrifices himself to save his partner]] Takua, allowing him to don the titular MaskOfPower and become Takanuva. Then, Takanuva [[FusionDance merges]] with [[BigBad Makuta]] and sacrifices part of their life-force to bring Jaller back, but at the cost of the fusion breaking up and him disappearing. Takanuva is brought back by the other characters through a sort of ritual conducted over a weird gizmo built into the floor -- it's confusing, and never explained. The {{Novelization}} rewrites the scene by having Takanuva walk out of the split fusion alive.

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}} Chronicles #4: Tales of the Masks'', Pohatu is presumed dead after being buried in a collapsed cave. The even [[NotSoStoic softens]] [[AnIcePerson the ice-hearted]] Kopaka so much that he's ready to hand over the Mask of Shielding he's found the cave to Pohatu's people... and Pohatu's there to take it from him, apparently having survived the cave-in thanks to the mask extending its power over him before the rubble hit.

* In ''Film/MuppetTreasureIsland'', [[TimCurry Long John Silver]] tells Samuel Arrow, played by safety fanatic [[TheComicallySerious Sam the Eagle]], one of the boats may not be safe, and tells him to go out to sea to make sure it is safe. He then tells Kermit (The Captain) that he was lost at sea. He comes back some time later and tells Jim, Gonzo, and Rizzo "Not to trust that Silver fellow."

* ''Webcomic/{{Earthsong}}'' opens with a battle in which a man named Richard is stabbed through the heart and disappears, enraging his allies as though he had actually been killed and alarming the newly-awoken protagonist, Willow. Richard's "killers" explain that the sword actually destroyed his soulstone, simply returning him to his home planet. This is the typical way to "die" on Earthsong, making it rather shocking when actual deaths occur. (However, it is sometimes the case that they are returning to imminent death on their world ''anyway''.)

** In Stardust crusaders, [[spoiler: Joseph gets a knife to the throat from DIO and then get's most of his blood sucked out (he even gets an WingedSoulFliesOffAtDeath moment like Iggy and Avdol). He is little more than a dry husk when the Speedwagon Foundation picks him up, but thanks to a blood transfusion from DIO and Jotaro restarting his heart, he was brought back.]]
** In Diamond is Unbreakable, [[spoiler: Okuyasu gets his abdomen blown up in the fight with Yoshikage Kira, and doesn't wake up after being healed, just like with Josuke's grandfather. However, he gets one last chat with his brother, where he decides [[ItIsNotYourTime It Is Not His Time]], and returns just in time to pull a BigDamnHeroes moment.]]

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', particularly the movies, love pulling these:
** ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'' has Ash get turned to stone by Mewtwo and Mew's power, only to be resurrected by Pokémon tears. ItMakesSenseInContext.
** In the eighth movie, ''Anime/PokemonLucarioAndTheMysteryOfMew'' the humans (Ash, May, Max, Brock, Team Rocket, and Kidd Summers) all get eaten by the giant tree's immune system. Then Mew tells the tree they're not enemies and it regurgitates them.
** Ash drowns in ''Anime/PokemonRangerAndTheTempleOfTheSea'', but [[DeusExMachina gets some unspecified kickass power]] and subsequently destroys the Bad Guy.
*** Said unspecified kickass power (flight, more or less) was apparently just a feature of the intact "Temple of the Sea," as the whole cast is shown zipping 'round the Temple afterwards.



** Ash turns to stone in ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'', only to be resurrected by Pokémon tears. [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gUvTa8Lx98 Amber]] said that Pokémon tears are full of life soon before she died...so, this is an aversion.]]
** Ash is arguably crushed by a chandelier in [=EP023=], but just goes back to his body, as the whole episode was a "Hey, being a ghost is pretty kickass. Also, screwing with Misty's emotions is funny!"
*** Since he was pulled out of his body by Haunter (rather than parting with it spontaneously), it was arguably more a form of astral projection than death.
** He also [[spoiler:arguably drowns in the 9th movie, ''Anime/PokemonRangerAndTheTempleOfTheSea'', but gets some unspecified kickass power and subsequently destroys the Bad Guy]].
*** Said [[spoiler:unspecified kickass power (flight, more or less) was apparently just a feature of the intact "Temple of the Sea," as the whole cast is shown zipping 'round the Temple afterwards.]]

** In ''Anime/PokemonZoroarkMasterOfIllusions'', [[spoiler: Zoroark]] get's a [[TearJerker truly heartrending one after]] [[spoiler: Kodai brutally electrocutes and mortally wounds her. After a PleaseWakeUp and lots of tears from her heartbroken son, Celebi manages to bring her back to life with the Time Ripple's power.]] Disney Death or not, it was well done and very emotional.
