* The character Yoshimitsu, who has appeared in every single ''{{Tekken}}'' game, has healing abilities beginning in Tekken 3. He can heal through meditating, or through draining lifeforce from an enemy. Like Shatterstar, he has an attack where [[DeliberateInjuryGambit he stabs himself]], inflicting damage but is able to hit an enemy for even more damage with it. He is also able to spin while in this state to further damage someone hit with this attack, with his sword still in him. Yoshimitsu can also spin away from his opponent at an incredibly rapid speed, an attack that requires expending his own life to do, and which causes him to lose his balance and faint temporarily if done excessively.

* Prometheus was chained to a rock and an eagle tore out his liver every day until he was rescued. Boy Prometheus, it's a GoodThingYouCanHeal now isn't it? Of course, the regeneration was part of his punishment for giving humans fire-so that his liver could be torn out every day for the rest of eternity and not just once.

* Played with in a novel of the Literature/{{Drenai}} saga. One of Waylander's enemies has magically-endowed [[HealingFactor regenerative capabilities]] that make him effectively unkillable. All well and good against Waylander's knives and crossbow bolts, but when [[UnwittingPawn his plan to use Waylander as a human sacrifice backfires and a demon arrives to claim HIM]]..."Ah. I see you have learned the secrets of regeneration. You will wish that you had not. For now [[AndIMustScream it may take you twenty centuries to die]]."

* While everyone received injuries in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', the really serious ones, such as impalement and losing huge chunks of flesh, went to the [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Wolkenritter]] and the [[HollywoodCyborg Combat Cyborgs]], who can be repaired and/or have {{Healing Factor}}s. Good thing too. As one {{Flashback}} showed, even with HealingHands, a normal human who gets critically wounded would require almost a year to recover, and that's if they're lucky.

* As mentioned in Literature above, Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle's ''Literature/{{Inferno}}'' has everyone in Hell being healed so they can go on being tortured there. There is actually some basis for this in Literature/TheBible, although it's not very descriptive. (Jesus simply says that "the flame never goes out and the worm never dies" there). Literature/TheQuran, in contrast, gives a very explicit description that the damned regularly have their skins burnt off, and then are provided new ones so that the burning can continue forever. Either way, [[BlessedWithSuck pity for them that they can heal]].

* This is a plot point in Damon Knight's novella ''Dio'' (or ''[[https://books.google.com/books?id=nZl0CwAAQBAJ&lpg=PT8&dq=Damon%20Knight%20The%20Dying%20Man&pg=PT9#v=snippet&q=noon&f=false The Dying Man]]''), which takes place in TheFuture where humans have genetically engineered themselves to be [[TheAgeless glamorous immortals]] who can levitate and regenerate injured body parts. Practically the first thing that happens is a mid-air wrestling match in which the protagonist loses his ability to fly and he and his opponent crash to the ground. The opponent's injuries heal in a few minutes, but Dio's not... that's how he finds out what's going to happen to him. Later on his friend Claire is underwater with her friend Ross, who drowns; his lungs exude a jelly that protects him until the responders get there.

* Wayne in ''Literature/TheAlloyOfLaw'' has the ability to store health in order to heal quickly later, so of course he gets hurt a lot more then his partner Wax, including once catching the brunt of an explosion and getting his entire back badly burned, being shot multiple times, being poisoned, etc. Also [[spoiler: Miles]] has a HealingFactor and probably gets shot almost as many times as everybody else in the book combined, including the mooks.

Also [[spoiler: Miles]] from ''Literature/TheAlloyOfLaw'' has a truly ridiculous HealingFactor and probably gets shot almost as many times as everybody else in the book combined, including the mooks.
