They can also grow back regenerate as part of their limbs when cut off.standard set of superhuman abilities. This ability varies wildly between individuals, with the [[CombatTentacles Rinkaku]] types typically having the strongest regenerative abilities. Protagonist Ken Kaneki is noted to have inherited powerful regenerative abilities, which allows him to do things like regrow severed fingers or even survive being [[spoiler: stabbed through the skull ''twice'']]. The most extreme examples in the series are horrific beings capable of literally PullingThemselvesTogether, treating decapitation or being sliced in half as a minor annoyance at most. While a weak ghoul can be killed fairly easily, the strongest are almost impossible to kill due to their powerful regeneration.

* In ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'', Harrison's blood allows his cells to heal at an astonishing rate, which he uses to heal a sick girl in the beginning in exchange for a favor. Later, Bones revives a dead tribble with it, [[spoiler:and then uses it to save Kirk]].

** It's speculated that the reason humans are unable to regenerate limbs is because having this ability would drastically increase our chances of getting cancer.

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', all speedsters have this ability, granted by their SuperSpeed. In the pilot, Barry breaks his arm, which heals in 3 hours. Presumably, the bone still has to be set as soon as possible to prevent it from healing improperly. In an ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' crossover episode, Oliver intentionally shoots Barry with two arrows to teach him to be aware of his surroundings. When Barry complaints, Oliver reveals that he knows about his healing ability (which doesn't prevent it from hurting like hell).

** The ''Torchwood: Web of Lies'' mobile game reveals that Jack's body is full of bullets and shrapnel from every time he was injured or killed since he was first resurrected. Apparently, his body doesn't push all that stuff out, simply regrowing around it. None of it appears to bother him in the least. Most of the metal pieces come out at the end of the game, though, thanks to an MRI magnet.

** He loses his healing factor in ''[[Series/TorchwoodMiracleDay Miracle Day]]'', and after the Miracle (which stops ''everyone'' on Earth from dying, no matter how badly they're injured) there is speculation that he many now be the only person on the planet who can die. [[spoiler:Once "the Blessing" is given some of his blood from when he was immortal, he regains it, along with associate Rex Matheson]].

WordOfGod is that, while his HealingFactor is gone, his ResurrectiveImmortality remains.

* In ''Fanfic/FateParallelFantasia'', Servants can recover from any injury that doesn't destroy their head or heart, provided they have enough of a supply of magical energy to draw on. This makes the Servants corrupted by False Avenger a significant threat, since unlike the heroic Servants they can draw unlimited energy from the Grail.

* The T-1000 from ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay''. It's too bad that a lot of scenes from the end were cut, and are thus not canon. The protagonists did enough damage over the course of the movie, specifically highlighting the freeze-and-shoot moment, that the T-1000 isn't able to completely maintain his form. Moments include grabbing a handrail, and having his fingers stick and assume the color of the warning paint, and while he walks his feet tends to melt.
** This is also what tips John Conner off that his mom is the T-1000 in disguise.
** In addition, it has its limits, as it [[spoiler: gets blown up with a grenade from the inside, and can't repair its mangled form because of the pressurized impact and heat. That and its fall into molten steel]].

** His healing factor isn't perfect -- there's a reason he's covered head to toe in scar tissue. His body is so ruined that items that normally only repair the undead can work on him.
