* Atsushi of ''Manga/BungoStrayDogs'' can transform into a were-tiger, and possesses a powerful HealingFactor while in that form. Naturally, he's the one who suffers the most gruesome wounds.

* Player characters experience this throughout ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld.'' Because of the Bee they've been symbiotically bonded with, players are effectively immortal and able to [[ResurrectiveImmortality return from the dead]] [[DeathIsCheap a matter of seconds after being killed]]. As such, quest-givers have few qualms about sending their newfound rescuers into deadly situations - to the point that some quests actually require players to kill themselves just so they can see what's going on in the spirit world; taken to ridiculous extremes in earlier versions of the game, where players were able to exploit the game's anima well network to teleport across the map by committing suicide!

** And rounding it out, the ComicBook/MetalMen seemingly can't go ten issues without at least one member being reduced to scrap, even in the Silver Age. [[TheChewToy Tin, as ever,]] got the worst of it.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', people with Surgebinding abilities can regenerate almost any injury as long as they have a reserve of Stormlight, which leaves them pretty cavalier about getting creatively hurt. [[spoiler:Shallan]] even weirds out a trusted subordinate by (muzzily) giving him orders while she has a crossbow bolt sticking through her head.

Added DiffLines:

* Fujiwara no Mokou from the ''Videogame/{{Touhou}}'' series is [[CompleteImmortality completely immortal]] and will [[FromASingleCell recover from even fatal injuries in moments]], which lets her completely disregard personal safety when fighting. It's explicitly stated that the only way to really beat her is to kill her over and over again until the pain simply prevents her from being able to counter-attack. In ''Urban Legend in Limbo'', her gimmick that she has fast and powerful attacks, but any attack that [[PlayingWithFire involves fire]] will damage herself as well. She can incinerate herself in a pillar of fire, which will undo all the self-damage she's sustained up to that point but leaves her vulnerable to counter-attacks while she regenerates, making playing as her a careful balance between pressing the offense and recovering HP.

* [[ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Groot]] can regrow missing limbs in a matter of minutes or seconds, survive gaping chest wounds (since he lacks anything resembling internal organs), and, if destroyed, can regrow from a single splinter. Since this is very badass, expect him to do that very often.

to:

* [[ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Groot]] ''ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'':
** Gamora has a healing factor which allows her to survive being set on fire (even if it does take several issues, due to the severity of her burns).
** Groot
can regrow missing limbs in a matter of minutes or seconds, survive gaping chest wounds (since he lacks anything resembling internal organs), and, if destroyed, can regrow from a single splinter. Since this is very badass, expect him to do that very often.


Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/BeastWarsUprising:'' Rampage, who has the ability to survive wounds that would kill any other Cybertronian. Although, as a DeathSeeker, he's a little bit pissed every time he tries to die, and wakes up to find himself back in good condition. [[spoiler:In the final story, he turns out to have CompleteImmortality.]]

So for writers who don't want to go the route of "LuckilyMyPowersWillProtectMe" every issue, they have to find new and inventive ways for the hero to show off their regeneration, whether by their own clumsiness, being an accident magnet, or the [[ImmortalLifeIsCheap target of lethal attacks]]. Accidents usually include: deep cuts, lost limbs, third degree burns, and otherwise flirting with [[HowToKillACharacter sure death.]] The problem is that while redundant exposition is avoided, the character in question gets a reputation as clumsy to the point that should they lose their regeneration they'd die or be seriously crippled, prompting onlookers to go "Good Thing You Can Heal".
