* Yuki Nagato from ''LightNovel/SuzumiyaHaruhi'' is able to regenerate using her MagicFromTechnology, apart from being seemingly unaffected by physical injuries. The limits are unknown, but it does happen in an instant.

* Hardgore Alice in ''LightNovel/MagicalGirlRaisingProject'' can regenerate from any injury as long as a molecule of her still exists. She has her stomach blown open, [[LosingYourHead she's decapitated]], she's burnt to ashes, and she heals up quickly no worse for wear.

She has her stomach blown open, [[LosingYourHead she's decapitated]], she's burnt to ashes, and she heals up quickly no worse for wear. [[spoiler:However it only works in her magical girl form. She is eventually ambushed and stabbed in her human form. She tries to save herself by transforming, but cannot concentrate enough to do it and succumbs to her injuries.]]



** ComicBook/NormanOsborn has this, given to him as a {{Retcon}} to explain how he came BackFromTheDead--consequently, this means even impaling his heart with a large spiked object only requires time to recover from; the in-universe explanation is that he always had it (i.e. ever since getting his powers) but hadn't noticed since he had never been ''that'' badly injured before (he is MadeOfIron and can shrug off small caliber bullets, so that helps a bit). It is unclear to what extent writers remember that he ''has'' this power--when fighting Spider-Man, he has since recovered from being hit by a bag of bombs and falling hundreds of stories to the ground while aflame (all at the same time); survived a point-blank explosion from [[PersonOfMassDestruction Nitro the Living Bomb]] being buried alive in a collapsed elevator shaft (along with Peter--Osborn recovered almost instantly, if he was badly injured at all, but Peter was in hospital for days); and many, many savage beatings from Spider-Man including one that culminated in having his head smashed in with a lamppost, caving it into concrete--again, he recovered within days, if not hours, off-panel, and was in perfect health when we next saw him. Some stories, however, seem to suggest that he can be killed rather easily--ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}, for instance, was going to shoot him with an arrow, and the plot seemed to imply that that would do the trick. Almost no story since his return explicitly mentions his healing factor by name either.

** In "Last Supper", an immortal woman who goes by the names "Laura" and "Jade" reveals that she was actually born in mediaeval Spain before her village was ravaged by the Black Death. She was the only one to survive, but hasn't aged or gotten sick since, and all her wounds recover soon enough. A government scientist takes samples of her blood to replicate the effect, [[spoiler:but vastly underestimates its potency when he injects himself with it and de-ages into a puddle of cells]].

* ''Literature/TheSorcererOfTheWildeeps'':
** Captain, being a [[SemiDivine demigod]], heals injuries others would suffer from for weeks within days or even hours, and they don't leave scars behind at all. During their stay at Mother of Waters, he comes out of the Fighthouse victorious, but also limping, bloody to the bone in places and with one eye swollen shut. By evening of the next day, only some scabs are left over from that.
** Demane, also a [[SemiDivine demigod]], also heals faster from injuries than normal people, although he remarks how his healing factor is nowhere near as good as Captain's.

* ''RogueSquadron'': Ships equipped with an astromech droid will gradually regain health as the droid makes repairs. However, if your droid is destroyed you lose this ability.

* ''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 feets 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.]]

* Pretty much every character in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' can invest into skills granting health-points regeneration (the games feature shields, that can withstand large amount of damage, but they eventually fail and there are attacks that deplete shields at alerting speed). Also, there are items, bestowing such quality onto their wielder, and many skills restore some amount of health-points and shields on activation (usually after killing an enemy). Health-restoring items are a rare drop in-games and occupy limited space in inventory, so it is easier to rely on natural regeneration.

** Krieg is an interesting example. The devs went out of their way to avoid giving Krieg anything that provided non-combat health regeneration beyond simply picking up or buying health injections. They made up for this with multiple ways to recover health in the thick of it, from murdering enemies during a Buzz Axe Rampage to dealing massive damage to setting people on fire.

* The [[TheLegionsOfHell Apostles]] from {{Berserk}} can usually heal from normal weapons if given time. [[BloodKnight Zodd]] for example has had his arms sliced off multiple times, he simply bends down picks up his arm and retatchs it like he's made of lego.

** However when Griffith forced him to join his cause, Zodd lost his horn and it hasn't grown back, it seems Apostles can't heal metaphysical injures.
