** During the ''Secret Invasion'' Deadpool actually weaponized his healing factor by letting the Skrulls use it to make their next generation of Super Skrulls. Only it turns out that when you don't have a horrible ravaging cancer for your healing factor to keep in check, you just keep generating more and more body mass... until you explode.

** Karin, [[spoiler: another Uzumaki,]] has a healing factor boosted by Orochimaru's experiments to the point where she can shrug off impalement. And she can heal others by letting them bite her and feed off her chakra.

* In ''EclipsePhase'' anyone with basic biomods heals twice as fast as a baseline human (regain HP every 12 hours instead of 24), even slowly regrowing limbs. [[NanoMachines Medichines]] can speed that up an additional 12 times (every hour).

* ComicBook/{{Morbius}} was quite surprised to find out his transformation into a [[OurVampiresAredifferent pseudo-vampire]] had given him accelerated healing, which he discovered after he was shot and woke up a little while later with the bullet hole gone. He can heal from a lot and does so faster than normal humans, but it definitely has its limits.
* In his wolf form, ComicBook/WerewolfByNight can heal from just about anything, as long as it's not silver through the heart. He also heals much faster as a wolf than as a human.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', the Titans are extremely fragile and relatively light despite their size. To make up for that, they have an extremely potent healing factor and feel almost no pain. They can recover from any injury as long as the napes of their necks aren't destroyed. [[spoiler: Titan Shifters also possess this ability, whether in human form or transformed into their Titans. Eren has regrown missing limbs and a tooth thanks to his powers. Likewise, Bertolt survives getting a SlashedThroat that ''should'' have been fatal and is barely slowed down. Reiner took this UpToEleven when he survived his own head (his human head, not his Titan head) literally exploding, by distributing his consciousness throughout his nervous system while his brain regenerates. Bertolt confirms that this is an ability all Shifters possess, but it's viewed as a last resort and it's implied that brain damage of various kinds could result from doing this.]]

** Though there are different types, at least some vampires have a Healing Factor that makes them unkillable other than by the proper means, eg. stake through the heart and garlic in the mouth. If you physically damage such a vampire's body ''really'' badly (eating their brains or cutting them in half, for example, isn't enough), they'll need special means to recover, but it's still possible.

* Flatworms can regenerate bits, including heads, although it's possible to mess with this in ways that result in two-headed flatworms.

*** That sounds like dehydrated Extra Cellular matrix, its a sort of universal animal cell growth medium, by applying dehydrated stuff to the wound it re-hydrates and triggers the growth of the surrounding tissue.

* Some planarian worms are capable of this. As in [[http://www.theverge.com/2013/7/10/4510580/planarian-worm-regrows-memories-after-decapitation even when decapitated]] or split in half.



** [[http://whyquit.com/whyquit/A_Benefits_Time_Table.html A timeline of what happens with a smoker quits]] is one very good piece of evidence to show just how good the human healing factor is. To put in perspective, it takes under a year for the body to return to more or less normal function. The risk of nasty diseases will drop significantly within years.
