* The Gholam of Robert Jordan's ''Literature/WheelOfTime'' is basically an AntiMagic T-1000 designed to assassinate magic users--so terrifying that only a handful were ever made. Only [[spoiler:AntiMagic artifacts like Mat's medallion]] (and probably starvation) can possibly do any damage, and that's not really a practical solution.

* Jack and Subject Delta from the ''Franchise/BioShock'' series: functionally immortal because the game's equivalent of save points - the Vita-Chambers - are coded to their specific DNA. No one else in Rapture can use them, [[spoiler: except Jack's father, of course.]]

* The focus of the ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'' story ''[[http://www.talesfromthevault.com/relentless/ Relentless]]'', though the killer is a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demon]] (or even EldritchAbomination) known as the ''Reikoku'', sent to perform an assassination, rather than a normal assassin who happens to be immortal. Its weaknesses: it takes a day to come back to life, and if a single person can kill it three times, it will be banished back to its home dimension. Unfortunately, each time it comes back to life, it will have developed an impenetrable defense against any attacks used against it the previous time, plus it will have developed brand new attacks, including tailor-made FlawExploitation attacks. It might [[ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime seem like a good idea]] to destroy its corpse, but that just brings it back to life instantly. Oh, and if any of your friends attack it in order to help you, they get added to its hit list. And three ''total'' kills amongst you and all your friends aren't enough to finish it, it has to be three kills by the same person. Have fun!

* In ''{{Mnemosyne}}'', an assassin keeps trying to kill Rin, and keeps coming back, no matter how many times she herself gets shot, stabbed, and blown up. Fortunately, Rin herself is immortal too.

* The television show ''{{Lexx}}'' has an immortal assassin, Kai, as one of its main characters. He literally is unkillable and one of the subplots is him finding a way to die.
* ''{{Warehouse13}}'' features Marcus Diamond, TheDragon to Season 3's BigBad. Technically he can't be killed because [[spoiler: he was already mortally wounded a long time ago, and he's using an artifact that rewound time for his body to just before his death. He's literally living on borrowed time.]]

* Liegenstrasse in ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'' is a result of splicing human and alien genome and the prime case of GoneHorriblyRight - with CastingAShadow, HealingFactor and full AnatomyArsenal, she proved nigh-impossible to take down and it was only managed by entire assassin temple.

* Inverted in ''FanFic/WhatAboutWitchQueen'' - while the assassin is absolutely mortal, his quarry proves much less so, to the surprise of them both.

* Most {{Terminator}}s are specifically designed to be unkillable killers; the only way to make [[MadeOfIron the T-800]] in ''Terminator 2'' seem vulnerable was to create an even deadlier Terminator: [[MadeOfAir the T-1000]].
