* ''Literature/MyVampireOlderSisterAndZombieLittleSister'':
** Vampires can rapidly regenerate from any injury (unless it's to their heart or their entire body is burned).
** To a lesser extent, witches can create potions that accelerate healing. However, this still requires a few hours, and particularly-severe injuries (like broken ribs) seem to take longer to heal.

* ''Webcomic/ProjectRiribirth'': In the backstory, Riri fights against a large monster who has a very powerful HealingFactor, to the extent that Riri destroys its hand and it almost immediately grows a new one. The fight goes... poorly for Riri.

** Belisarius Cawl is a mechanical example. While Adeptus Mechanicus around his level can usually spend time to repair themselves, Cawl just outright repairs himself constantly and without his explicit intervention, 1 to 3 wounds every turn out of his [[MadeOfIron 5]]. Combined with his ridiculous levels of inherent armor, and the fact one of his possible buffs (which attempts to repair every unit in an area for one Wound) affects himself as well (leading to 4-wound regeneration on a lucky turn), he will spend most of the battle repairing himself faster than anyone can hurt him. He has been known to grind down [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority Abaddon the Despoiler]] to dust simply because not even ''he'', a OneManArmy who can kill even great Tyranid beasts and entire squads of Space Marines in melee without trouble, can slice him apart fast enough.

* The [[LizardFolk Septarians]] from WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil have this ability. [[TheChessmaster Toffee's]] in particular is very potent [[WoundThatWillNotHeal aside from his missing finger]] [[spoiler:which was [[{{Fingore}} blasted off]] by dark magic]], later we learn that they can [[FromASingleCell regenerate from body parts]] (though it takes a long while) as [[BountyHunter Rasticore]] was reduced to a hand and when we next see him he's gone up to his elbow.

* ''WebVideo/DeathBattle'' factors this trope in determining a victor, but in this case it's determining how powerful it is to prevent them from dying. [[spoiler:This is a major factor in the wins for ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}} vs. Deadpool, Dante vs. VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}, and Hulk vs. Doomsday. The first and the last are especially notable because Deadpool and Doomsday's healing factors are insanely more powerful than Deathstroke and Hulk's (Deadpool is able to reattach his arm and leg twice after he got them mixed up while Doomsday repaired his completely and utterly ruptured arm after Worldbreaker Hulk crushed it. Both would go on to gut their opponents and take their heads off), and while Bayonetta's feats are admirably greater than Dante she has no such ability to recover from injures where as Dante can easily shake off being stabbed by a sword. This is a major factor in the Deadpool vs. [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Pinkie Pie]] battle as the former had an insane healing factor and the latter ran on ToonPhysics, thus neither could really die.]]

** This is a trait in some Tamriellic [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire]] bloodlines. Often times, this occurs immediately after feeding. This was one of the very first traits displayed by [[MonsterProgenitor Lamae Beolfag]] which terrified the nomads who rescued her, leading to them attacking and her slaughtering them all. Especially rapid healing is known to be a trait of the Thrafey bloodline of High Rock.

* The demons of ''ComicBook/CleanRoom'' can possess human bodies, then mold the flesh like clay. This has the potential to heal the victim, but is much more frequently seen [[BodyHorror doing the opposite]].

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': All NPC's and the player heal slowly in combat and slightly faster out of combat, with some potions and enchantments increasing this rate. Argonians can increase this by ten times once a day. The only exceptions are werewolves in wolf form and vampires in sunlight.

** This is a trait of Spriggans, a hostile [[WhenTreesAttack tree-like]] race of PlantPeople with a GaiasVengeance tilt, throughout much of
the player series. Spriggans have a rapid healing factor which kicks in when their health drops to critically low levels. (In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'''s ''Bloodmoon'' expansion, they instead [[OnceIsNotEnough had to be slain three times]] before they would stay dead.)
** As of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', all [=NPCs=] (as well as the PlayerCharacter)
heal slowly in combat and slightly faster out of combat, with some potions and enchantments magical effects increasing this rate. Argonians can increase [[LizardFolk Argonians]] have a racial power that increases this healing rate by ten times 1000% for 60 seconds once a per day. The only exceptions are werewolves in wolf form and vampires in sunlight.

* ''ComicBook/PainkillerJane'' has this power.

* ''ComicBook/PainkillerJane'' has this power. But while her regenerative abilities enable her to survive just about anything, it doesn't get rid of the pain from said injuries, which is why she has the name. See Series below for more details.

* ''Creator/ElizabethMoon''' seems to consider this as standard medical technology. Both ''Literature/FamiliasRegnant'' (Kevil Mahoney) and ''Literature/VattasWar'' (Aunt Grace) fully recover missing limbs. Averted in that the technology can repair almost anything short of death (Barin Serrano), but it takes time to fully recover: Aunt Grace's re-grown arm horrified/fascinated her niece and nephew because it started off looking like a child's arm before growing full sized, and Grace had to go through lots of exercise to bring it up to full functionality.
