* ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' One of the reasons Jean Grey has cheated death so much is because the Dark Phoenix Force seems unwilling to let her die. It shows up almost ''every'' time she's at risk of death to heal and/or transport her out of danger in some way. One of the most hilarious (darkly so) instances was when she told Wolverine to kill her, hoping the Phoenix Force would be weakened trying to heal her. He obliged, stabbing her to death ''six times'' (at least, seeing it was a montage) and when ''that'' wasn't enough, she threw herself into a frozen lake. (Still didn't sway the Phoenix Force from saving her.)

* Some Native American nations have a RiteOfPassage called "guardian spirit quest" (TheOtherWiki calls it "vision quest"). In this ritual, a boy fasts and meditates for several days to receive a visitation by an animal spirit who henceforth becomes his guardian and imbues him with some of its (magical) properties.

* Personas in the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona'' series.

* Across the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series, Taira no Masakado serves this role for the city of Tokyo, with varying levels of success.

* In ''TheTwelveKingdoms'', one of the later arcs concerns a Kirin who wound up getting stuck in the human world with amnesia - he was bullied for being 'weird', but fortunately, he has guardians: the Youkai he took as his servants back in the Twelve Kingdoms, acting from the shadows to keep him safe. Unfortunately, they don't have a lot of restraint, and resultingly, anyone who shows him the least bit of hostility or unkindness winds up having 'accidents', including a few deaths...
