* ''PlanescapeTorment'' follows the story of The Nameless One, who's literally immortal. With a couple of exceptions, getting killed in the game just means you'll wake up somewhere else at full health. You don't even suffer any sort of temporary penalty for dying - in fact, there are a couple of situations where you can have someone 'kill' you for profit. This is an InvertedTrope, however, as the point of the game is to find out ''why'' you can't die - and find a way ''to'' die, if possible.

* ''VideoGame/LostOdyssey'' has this as a plot point. A number of your playable characters are actual immortals who have lived through a thousand years and are capable of coming back unscathed from things that would kill a normal human many times over. TheHero himself shrugs off a ''[[ColonyDrop meteor impact]]'' in the prologue alone. This is [[DeconstructedTrope heavily examined in game, however]] since most of them aren't the most emotionally stable, having become disillusioned after [[WhoWantsToLiveForever witnessing their loved ones die time and again while they remain forever young.]]

* {{Superman}} is one of these, as ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'' was just a big publicity stunt after all, albeit a good-intentioned one (to illustrate why the DCUniverse needed TheCape rather than another NinetiesAntiHero). Heck, even if they had the guts to kill off Kal-L (The original 1938 Superman) they've already announced plans to bring him back.

* DCComics subverts this trope with ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'', where most of the characters they've '''ever''' killed off -- including the Earth-2 Superman -- come back... as murderous zombies. Plus, they're not really back in body and soul, just a twisted echo of the person they were.

* In ''{{Solatorobo}}'' Red is sacrificed to awaken a HumongousMecha that will [[OmnicidalManiac destroy the world]], then a couple minutes later he gets back up, [[UnexplainedRecovery no explanation]].
* ''Nippon Ichi'' really likes this. They use it just about every game in the Disgaea series.

* Happens ''at least'' 4 times in ''SamuraiChamploo''. One of these even feature a long and TearJerker death sequence (the one following the "death" of Mugen), but he resuscitates (without explanation of course) soon after.

** As of 485, we ''finally'' have a named protagonist die outside of a flashback. [[spoiler: And now Yamamoto has apparently bit the dust as well]].

**** Only if you do EVERYTHING right. Remember, Ilya is an expert at Homonculi and such? It's been established in advance, in Fate route, in fact. She turns Shirou into a Homonculus in a couple of endings. What she did was save his 'soul', and transfer it to a new body. Had to pull in a character from KaraNoKyoukai to get it to work right, though.
