** Dipping into NightmareFuel territory is what's annihilating the Tasmanian Devil. If the phrase "aggressive non-viral transmissible parasitic cancer" doesn't make you shudder at night, how about the fact it's 100% fatal and has wiped out 70% of the entire population in less than 20 years?

* BlessedWithSuck example from Creator/OrsonScottCard: ''Planet of Treason''. One of the families exiled to an isolated world has genetically-engineered themselves to a state in which they can regenerate organs, so that they can sell them to eventually buy their way home. Occasionally a mutant like the protagonist appears whose regenerative abilities approach this level -- but he also grows extraneous body parts that eventually cripple, then kill him. At one point, his guts are ripped out, producing [[WildChild a feral copy.]]

** Most notably the [[TheImmortalLifeOfHenriettaLacks Hela]] cells, the first immortal human cell line. They were taken from Henrietta Lacks's cervical tumour in 1951 and they're still going. They will also invade and take over any other cells you happen to have growing about the lab - they've done millions of USD worth of damage that way, but it's sort of balanced out by also being responsible for every significant medical discovery in the past sixty years.

* ''Videogame/ContraHardCorps'' has this being one of the main plot points for the game and main motivation for the big bad. Just a single cell from Red Falcon is enough to cause devastation on a planetary scale. In most endings if the Alien Cell is grown it can easily: turn into back into a hive monstrosity, or re-purposed as a biological bomb; or be used as fuel for a giant doomsday weapon. In the one ending it isn't released it's fused with the big bad who turns into massive alien monstrosity himself.

* ''Series/UltramanMebius'' has the villain Imperizer who have to, at first, have his entire body vaporized to kill it, otherwise, it would regenerate. Later it is toned down to destroying a certain part of it to prevent regeneration, but it is still NighInvulnerable beforehand. Worst part, ''they'' are the BigBad's Mass Produced '''Minions'''.

* Lobo of DCComics, an alien mercenary who deviates back and forth from a PsychoForHire to a HeroicComedicSociopath, can revive himself from a single drop of blood. He once cloned himself an army this way, but, y'know, being all "sociopathic," they all killed each other until one remained (in non-bloody ways, like suffocating each other).
