* One of the most mind-boggling examples is in ''Film/HudsonHawk'', when a friend of the BruceWillis character, who seems to have died in a car fire shortly before, shows up again and explains, "The sprinkler system turned on!" This in spite of the fact that the car careened off of a cliff and exploded upon impact with the ground (but it is a parody/comedy).

* ''Series/{{Lost}}''::
** "All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues" used a very cheap Disney Death, when Charlie was found strung up by the neck, not breathing, and with no pulse, but after a particularly protracted CPR session, Jack was able to revive him. Some fans decided to blame the unlikely event on the possibly magic island (similar to AWizardDidIt). Shannon suffered a similar death scene in "Hearts and Minds", but the sequence was shown to have been a hallucination suffered by her brother Boone under the influence of an unnamed drug prepared and administered without his knowledge by Locke.
** There's nothing especially remarkable about any Lost examples though because the series runs on DeathIsCheap.
** In season 4, the Kahana explodes [[spoiler:with Jin on board]]. A few episodes later, he's clinging to shipwreck. Similarly in season 6, [[spoiler:Lapidus is whacked round the head as the submarine sinks from the Man in Black's bomb and Lapidus is presumed dead by viewers, but resurfaces, clinging to debris very dehydrated several episodes later. Jin and Sun ''do'' die in this incident however.]]
** At the end of season 3, [[spoiler:Locke gets shot and thrown into a hole full of bodies]], but later gets up out of the pit after seeing a vision of Walt telling him to get up. He later mentions that he didn't die because [[spoiler:[[ArtisticLicenseBiology the injury location was where his stolen kidney would have been and if he'd still had that kidney, he would have died]]]].
** Plus there's the man in the eyepatch who survived all sorts of various fatal incidents. Including impaling.
