* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'':
** The Swarmlord in the incarnation of the Tyranid's HiveMind, containing the sum of its combat experience and memories and deployed when the swarm faces a truly fearsome enemy, and can be recreated if its dies. When the time comes for it to go elsewhere, it suffers the same fate as the lowliest organism: it gets reabsorbed into biomass and its consciousness is injected into the body of another Swarmlord on a different battleground.
** The Dark Eldar Haemonculi have mastered the art of resurrection on both themselves and their victims (even death is no escape from them). The most ancient of all, Urien Rakarth, has undergone the process so many times he now suffers CameBackWrong every time- and in true scientific manner, actually looks forward to dying so he can see what new and bizarre mutations his body will gain.

* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'', Batman follows his usual [[ThouShaltNotKill no-killing rule,]] right up until the boss-fight with the giant immortal zombie. [[GodzillaThreshold Mostly because less-than-lethal force would get him killed.]] (Seriously, the thing's ''maggots'' are the size of Batman's thigh.)

Similarly he uses whatever force is necessary to take down [[spoiler:Clayface]], including electrocution in a giant vat of liquid.

* Guardians in ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'' are made immortal by the Traveller. Traveler. This colors their perceptions of their own lives:
**
A few of them called thanatonauts spend their days in a room with a loaded gun and a notebook, repeatedly offing themselves and writing about the experience.experience. Certain [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Exo Guardians]] do the same, hoping to find [[LossOfIdentity something of their past lives amid the memories when they are resurrected]].
** Rezyl Azzir once assassinated the Kell of one of the Fallen Houses by letting the Fallen kill him, and when the Kell lifted up his body as a trophy, his Ghost would resurrect him, letting him kill the Kell while it was vulnerable.
** During the Iron Lords' campaign to break the power of other arisen Guardian warlords abusing their power, their preferred tactic was to hole up in a secured location where their Ghosts could safely resurrect them and just keep shooting the enemy Guardians, letting them kill each other until the warlords [[RageQuit realized that they weren't getting anywhere and gave up]], then came to the negotiating table.
** One story involving Lord Saladin and Lady Efrideet involved her picking up Saladin and chucking him from ''low orbit'' into a Fallen Walker like a flaming spear, and he hit the Fallen Walker with a Fist of Havoc that obliterated it. Naturally, he didn't survive that, but his Ghost brought him back right afterward.
** Guardians' immortal lives are considered so cheap that, when a Guardian's ResurrectiveImmortality is disabled (due to the Guardian's Light being lost or their Ghost being destroyed), seeing a Guardian die can trigger a HeroicBSOD in other Guardians. The disastrous assault on Mare Imbrium that ended with the Hive killing thousands of Guardians was so disastrous that the Guardians declared the Moon a complete no-go zone for centuries.

* Multiman gets this in [[ComicBook/JokersLastLaugh Last Laugh]], where SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker repeatedly murders him until [[DiscardAndDraw he gets a power]] useful in escaping prison. Afterwards, the entire prison gets sucked into a black hole, stranding a number of people. They eventually escape... by repeatedly murdering Multiman until he gets a power that helps them escape.

* ''Fanfic/TheManyDeathsOfRainbowDash'': After Rainbow Dash learns that she's been cursed with ResurrectiveImmortality, the first thing she does--after getting over the initial shock--is to gleefully make us of the opportunity to pull off a couple of death-defying (or rather, death-causing) stunts, such as flying out of the atmosphere or taunting a dragon. Later, Applejack and Pinkie Pie have Rainbow guide them through a trap-filled corridor, since she doesn't mind getting repeatedly killed.

* ''WebOriginal/{{Worm}}'': The Undersiders don't really have a problem with using excessive force on [[NighInvulnerability Aegis]] despite him being a hero and their playstyle usually being NobleDemon. That's because his HealingFactor allows him to survive things like being mauled by colossal dogs, or thrown off a building. Against other heroes in the same fight, the group's a lot more merciful. Other {{Nigh Invulnerab|ility}}le opponents are generally treated by similar force, even by completely upstanding heroes. Granted, most of these are [[PersonOfMassDestruction people of mass destruction]] and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown anything goes]].
