* This has happened a few times in ''ComicStrip/DickTracy'' over the years. Pruneface returned as a HumanPopsicle. Mumbles has actually come back ''three times'' (although the third time was by the current writers simply [[CanonDiscontinuity ignoring the story]] that killed him, since his death story had a lot of [[ContinuitySnarl continuity problems]] anyway). A recent major story arc involved the apparent return of Moon Maid. [[spoiler: It's not really her.]] Still, these are exceptions; the strip generally averts this trope hard, with popular characters like Flattop dying and staying very dead.

* While ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'' generally tries to avert this, one major exception happened with ''ComicBook/StrontiumDog''. Alan Grant killed Johnny Alpha off via HeroicSacrifice at the end of "The Final Solution" as a [[WriterRevolt a statement about creators' rights]] in a way that he was DeaderThanDead. Carlos Ezquerra was reportedly so upset by the story that refused to draw it, so the majority of the story was drawn by Simon Harrison, with Colin [=MacNeil=] drawing the end of the story. Nine years later, John Wagner began what was originally a ContinuityReboot, but later {{Ret Con}}ned out the more gruesome aspects of Johnny's death so his body was still intact and had him brought back to life via magical means.

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'', it's revealed that Neo is, in fact, [[spoiler:Mu la Flaga... in spite of the fact that Mu performed a HeroicSacrifice in the second-to-last episode of the preceding series, blocking a massive [[WaveMotionGun positron cannon]] blast with his mecha to keep it from destroying a much larger spaceship. Mu's shattered helmet is shown floating amidst the wreckage in the ''SEED'' TV series, and is edited out in the compilation movies to make his survival look more plausible...and utterly fails to do so because this just makes it seem as though the {{antimatter}} weapon more realistically vaporized him.]].

** They've even gotten GenreSavvy about it, with Beast calling one villain's death a "ComicBook/{{Magneto}} moment," invoking the frequent "deaths" and "returns" of the sometimes-[[BigBad Big-Bad]]-sometimes-[[AntiHero Anti-Hero]]. (Almost none of these involved Magneto ''actually'' dying, though sometimes that's via retcon, and very few characters have been ''believed'' to be dead as often as Magneto.) "The more certain the death, the more certain the resurrection."



** ''Series/AsTheWorldTurns'' [[LampshadeHanging hung a lampshade]] on this trope with the death of David Stenbeck. David, the son of the villainous, oft-resurrected James (and a character who also had a couple returns from the dead), was killed by the police. When the coffin was being lowered into the ground, Julia shot it full of holes, just to be sure. Her reaction to the townspeoples' horror indicated a certain GenreSavvy regarding this trope. When James himself was finally KilledOffForReal, a bunch of people came to his funeral just to be sure that his body was found and that he was really dead that time.
