It also tends to escalate into a rather gorier version of TheWorfBarrage. Since the regenerator can take damage that would otherwise kill any other team member, it becomes their [[PlotTailoredToTheParty "job"]] to be the target of a "NoOneCouldSurviveThat" at the hands of the MonsterOfTheWeek or recurring baddy because writers will always expend the expendable, as the SecondLawOfMetafictionalThermodynamics describes. It shows that the bad guy is ready and willing to kill, without actually having somebody die. At its worst, it can break WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief by having the regenerator come back from being completely incinerated (ShapeShifterBaggage is usually involved when that much mass is lost), or a character with clones [[ExpendableClone casually killing them]].

Contrast ImmortalLifeIsCheap, where someone who can't die permanently gets killed repeatedly. Also contrast SlidingScaleOfUndeadRegeneration, which can go from this to ''no healing'' at all. The comedic version of this is TheyKilledKennyAgain, where a character who isn't established as immortal is repeatedly killed (usually for laughs), and always brought back without any reason.

* ''{{Transformers}}'' wobbles back and forth on this. You have Optimus Prime being dismembered in ''Franchise/TransformersGeneration1'' and being okay, but a few shots to the torso kill him one movie later. ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' Waspinator explodes so much that Rattrap has a collection of his parts, but [[spoiler: Dinobot]] dies just with minimal injuries. In one episode of ''TransformersAnimated'' people live with just their heads, in another a stab to the gut nearly kills you dead.

* Khalid Shamoun of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'': Evolution has the ability to regenerate himself from things that would normally kill him. It's even invoked by the scientists, when it's revealed that [[spoiler:he was the kid from the prologue who got shot for mouthing off, to demonstrate that rebelling would result in death]]. It becomes a DeconstructedTrope, however, in that it's shown that his ability to regenerate is failing more than usual in recent history.

* In the ''PokemonSpecial'' manga, Koga's Arbok has the unique ability to regenerate any severed portion of its body as long as its head is intact. Unsurprisingly, attacks that would inflict only minor injuries on other Pokémon (being bitten by another Arbok, being tail-whipped) literally ''slice [[MadeOfPlasticine this Arbok]] [[CleanCut in half]]''.

* The player can do this in ''PlanescapeTorment''. Since the main character can't die, and has a HealingFactor as part of the parcel, they can willingly allow themselves to be [[ImmortalLifeIsCheap mangled in all sorts of ways]]. You can allow a woman to pay for the privilage of fatally stabbing you, snap your own neck to prove a point not once but ''twice'', allow a hag to [[EyeScream claw out your eye to give you power]], remove a magical ring from the dead finger it's stuck on by '''biting your finger off and sticking the dead finger onto the stump''', allow a mortician to sew up your wounds, have a crazy dissectionist cut your various body parts open (including pulling out your own intestines and cracking open your skull), gouge out your eye to put a preserved one in its place, and gain spells from a PyroManiac wizard by allowing him to burn your finger, hand, eyeball and intestines to charred cinders.

* Yukiko Hirohara from ''[[VisualNovel/ElevenEyes 11 eyes]]''.
* Yakumo in ''[[Manga/SazanEyes 3x3 Eyes]]'' has been turned into a "wu", an immortal guardian of the last known Sanjiyan (Triclops) who regenerates even if he has been turned into paste. He cannot die until either the Sanjiyan, Pai, is killed, or she manages to find a way to release him from said condition. At the start of the series, he regularly gets beaten, chopped up, and blown up (it started when he was hit by a bus). At one point, he [[GenreSavvy deliberately]] grabs a lighter and jumps into a fountain full of gasoline in order to kill a monster. Some of his deaths are simple random bad luck, like the aforementioned car accident; one wonders if he had that kind of bad luck ''before'' he was immortal.

* In ''Franchise/GhostInTheShell'', cyborgs can recover from (or rather, be repaired from) pretty much any injury that doesn't affect the brain. The Major, in particular, has a tendency to get limbs (and in one case, her ''head'') blown off, but other characters are not exempt from this.
** Twice, if you're counting both the TV series and the first movie.
* ''Manga/{{Gunnm}}/Battle Angel Alita''. Not a direct application of this trope, since neither Gally nor her gigantic cyborg foes regenerate per se. However, since the in-universe rule of thumb is that as long as the brain is intact, [[YouFailBiologyForever it can be grafted into any kind of body overnight]], it amounts to the same thing. Coincidentally, every fight she's in features lots and lots of dismemberments, slashfests and LudicrousGibs - on both sides. Good thing she can bolt those legs back on.

** Wolverine from the ''ComicBook/XMen'' combines his regeneration with MadeOfIron to be pretty damn careless. In one instance, his ''entire body'', save his adamantium skeleton, was incinerated by a WaveMotionGun, and he [[FromASingleCell regenerated from a handful of brain cells left in his cranial cavity.]] Said skeleton is actually an example. Should he ever lose his healing factor, the metal in his skeleton will kill him.

* Wolverine in all the ''Film/XMen'' movies. The movie version went with "painful and suicidal because he can", including an instance where he punctured his own lungs to get out of restraints (and another, less fatal, of putting out his cigar on his palm, complete with wince).
** As usual, he takes a lot of punishment throughout ''Film/TheWolverine'', but his survival of an ''atomic bomb'' really stands out.

* In ''WorldOfWarcraft'', there are sometimes very high places that would take a long time to climb back down from. Of course the solution is obvious, and several classes have abilities to make it a perfectly survivable tactic, including the Priest's Levitate, Rogue's / Druid Cat-Form's reduced falling damage etc. Warlocks and Shamans don't have these... but they ''do'' have the ability to occasionally self-ressurect, leading to a lot of Warlocks and Shammys going 'splat'.

* Both Vorcha and Krogans in the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' universe can heal: Vorcha heal very quickly as a natural ability, which gives them a somewhat horrifying appearance from the mass of scars they receive, and Krogans are so naturally tough and resilient that their anatomy allows them to continue functioning even when they shouldn't be capable, while their body heals the injuries. Both can have their regeneration shut down (temporarily, but permanently in the games based on how combat works) through inflicting incredible amounts of simultaneous, wide-spread damage (the Warp biotic effect) or [[KillItWithFire burning them]].
