* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'': Shirou Emiya once regenerates in under a minute or two from having his torso nearly cloven in two in the Fate route, not that he realises it. Thank god for [[spoiler: [[HealingFactor Avalon]]]].

* Pretty much ''all'' the main characters in ''Manga/UQHolder'' are subject to this. Pretty much all of them have been blasted with what would normally be lethal damage on multiple occasions. Kirie is probably the most extreme example; her form of immortality is essentially SaveScumming (whenever she dies, she simply pops back to the last "save point" she set up and tries again). As a result, most of her strategy consists of trial and error, dying and resetting over and over until she finds something that works.

It's worth noting that this trope is often applied on targets that can bleed and feel pain. No BloodlessCarnage here. The trope [[RuleOfDrama provides interesting opportunities]] mostly because it allows more drastic violence against important characters that has [[{{Gorn}} tangible results]] while avoiding the usual UnfortunateImplications for both attacker and victim.

* Agent K of ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack'' has no compunctions about blowing the head off of the immortal alien informant Jeebs as part of his regular interrogation technique. Jeebs, [[FromASingleCell after regenerating his head]], usually complains about how much it stings before relenting the requested information. There're also other ButtMonkey treatments for Jeebs; he also gets stomped into a puddle by a giant alien and ripped in half by a couple of teleporter guns.

Jeebs's brother habitually greets him by blowing off his head, much to Jeebs's annoyance. This nearly results in J's death, when he impersonates Jeebs. Luckily, Alpha shoots Jeebs's brother in the head for wasting time playing games.

It's common sense. There's nothing wrong with using non-lethal force to stop someone. So what if it just so happens that, with this person, non-lethal force happens to include bullets? It's not that [[ThouShaltNotKill the code against killing]] doesn't apply. They're just not killing anyone. Which means heroes who normally have to fight with SwordsSetToStun to avoid [[CouldHaveBeenMessy things getting messy]], or otherwise take pains to NeverBringAKnifeToAFistFight can now [[IAmNotLeftHanded cut loose]] against the immortal enemy.

* In TheWheelOfTime, Mat and his band come across a village where the people go crazy every night and kill each other, then wake up in their beds alive the next morning. In the final battle with The Dark One's forces, he uses these villagers to hold an important strategic location knowing that they can't be killed off for real.

* {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d, {{inverted|Trope}}, and played both for [[PlayedForLaughs laughs]] and [[PlayedForDrama drama]] in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' with the super power of Mysterion. Being [[spoiler:Kenny]], he has died a thousand times, but wakes up back in his own bed every morning with nobody remembering that he died. At one point he gets so pissed off that nobody believes him that he can not die while he has to suffer through the pains of all kinds of horrible deaths on a regular basis and shoots himself in the head to prove it, but two minutes later everyone has forgotten. He later uses his ability to escape from [[Creator/HPLovecraft R'yleh]] by throwing himself into a chasm to awaken back in his own bed and searching a way to save his friends, who are still trapped there. After everything is said and done, Mysterion mention that he's tired and just wants to go to bed, and shoots himself in the head again as a shortcut.
