** This was subverted - another earthquake stuck Christchurch on February 22 the next year. This killed 185 people, despite only being a 6.3 magnitude earthquake, because the epicentre was located closer to the city (10&nbsb;km rather than 40 km) and buildings that were already damaged by the September earthquake and its aftershocks collapsed on top of people. One building's collapse (the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CTV_Building CTV Building]]) was responsible for 115 deaths alone. It was New Zealand's second deadliest natural disaster in history, after the 1931 Hawke's Bay earthquake (256 killed).

* The Talladega Prison Rescue. Prisoners tooks over the prison, and took hostages. The FBI responded by calling up the HRT and SWAT teams, who then stormed the building. The death toll of the raid was... zero. Not one hostage, FBI Agent, or prisoner was killed.
* On April 13, 2012 El Salvador celebrated its first homocide-free day in nearly three years, due to a recent truce called by rival gangs Mara Salvatrucha and Mara 18. In the last three years, the average was 12 murders per day, reaching as high as 18. News articles even showed jailed members of the gangs giving thanks for the respite.

* No one dies in ''Film/InsideMan''. This is especially notable because the bank robbers are spending the entire movie making sure no one dies and that everyone thinks the hostages are in danger. This is a central part of the robbers plan since if Everybody Lives and nothing seems to be stolen from the bank, the police are unlikely to expand significant resources pursuing them in the aftermath.

** No humans die neither in season 4 episode "Wishful Thinking". The only thing that "dies" is a teddy bear magically brought to life when the curse is reverted. "The Monster At The End of The Book" in the same season is another example: the plot start when the Winchesters finds book about them in a store.

** Although the Season 16 episode "[[Recap/LawAndOrderS16E1RedBall Red Ball]]" is a very, very rare straight example. A little girl is kidnapped, the cops catch the guy who did it but he won't tell them where the girl is (or even if she's still alive). He ends up trying to game to system, saying he'll only tell the police and prosecutors where the girl is if he's given a free pass with no prison time whatsoever - after much arguing and agonizing, Jack [=McCoy=] defies his superiors and grants the kidnapper the deal, more or less guaranteeing he'll be fired. [[spoiler: The girl is found safe and well, the Judge presiding over the case overrules the deal [=McCoy=] gave the kidnappers and sentences him to a fair bit of prison time, and as the final kicker, Arthur Branch doesn't even fire Jack. Everybody wins (except the bad guy of course)]].

* Those familiar with Creator/AdultSwim's brand of [[BlackComedy pitch-black humor]] would hardly expect anything different from one of its fake infomercials "Broomshakalaka", where a crazed salesman tries to sell enough obviously faulty [[SwissArmyWeapon multi-purpose brooms]] to equal the life of his dead daughter, and dies a slow and agonizing death after accidentally chopping off both his hands, all while his TV guests reluctantly try to keep the show going in the middle of a FreakOut. [[spoiler:When they successfully hit the sales mark, it actually brings the salesman's daughter back to life; hitting twice the amount brings the salesman back with both his hands attached; and three times the amount resurrects the guests' beloved dead dog]].

* In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', you are led to believe that [[spoiler:Grodus died from the Shadow Queen and TEC died in the explosion at the X Naut base]]. However, in the ending cutscene it is revealed that [[spoiler:Grodus is still alive, albeit as just a head that hops around. TEC also lives, saying that he destroyed the facility so it could not be used for evil... And that afterwards, he miraculously came back to life with no memory damage. the only explanation he has is [[HandWave "I don't know how it happened"]]. ]]

* The only ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'' to end without a fatality or carnage of any sort is "Comic/{{Deadpool}} vs. [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Pinkie Pie]]". It starts out normally enough with the combatants duking it out until they whip out their [[BreakingTheFourthWall fourth wall-breaking abilities]]. Realizing they have much in common, they immediately call off the fight and become friends, proceeding to [[NoFourthWall jump through past episodes for fun]]. The episode even ends on a happy note with Pinkie throwing Deadpool a birthday party when he (verbally) confronts [[RageAgainstTheAuthor the head honchos of ScrewAttack themselves for organizing such an illy timed battle]]. This outcome naturally leaves Wiz and Boomstick equal parts disappointed and completely baffled as Deadpool caps things off with a neatly hung [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]]:
-->'''Deadpool''': Well, so much for the "death" in "Death Battle" now, right?
