Often possessed by many supernatural creatures with a HealingFactor, or immortal entities such as gods. Also typically a feature of the PlagueMaster, who would necessarily have to be immune on some level to the many diseases they spread around.

* ''Film/{{Unbreakable}}'': One of the factors that make David realize that he is superhuman is the fact that he's never gotten sick or taken a day off from work.

* In 7th Sea, characters with Sidhe Blood can take a blessing which makes them age more slowly and makes them immune to illness.
* The {{Exalted}} are highly resistant to disease, but not completely immune. Some magic, however, can grant such immunity, like the appropriately named Solar charm [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Immunity to Everything Technique]].

** The fourth edition has the Immunity to Disease advantage (along with lesser versions which give bonuses to resisting diseases). It does not come standard with any level of Unkillable (4e's version of the Immortality advantage).

* In ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' one of the side effects of Beast Boy's powers is that he's incapable of getting sick. This apparently didn't carry over to the cartoon, since one episode had him getting a cold.

* ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'' episode "The New Breed" involves prototype nanites developed to make this a reality. Basically, the nanites are designed to move through the body and look for any cellular abnormalities. The damaged or mutated cells would then be restored to their original state. And yes, someone even accused the scientist who developed them of playing God. Unfortunately, a friend of his decides to inject himself with the nanites before they're fully tested. Given the nature of the series, things go horribly wrong.
