* 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.

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.

There is also an episode in the animated series where Proteus uses his reality altering powers to rip Wolverine in half and then melt him into a puddle (he comes out crying). The other X-Men are also attacked by Proteus, but no one else gets the horrific treatment, even though in this case they may have survived afterward since Proteus's effects go away when he leaves the area.

His mother, the goddess Frigg, responded by making everything on Earth vow never to harm Baldur--effectively making him [[NighInvulnerability Nigh Invulnerable]]. The other gods react to this, in jolly Norse God fashion, by making a game of hurling things at him, all of which harmlessly bounce off. (Unfortunately for Baldur, his mother neglected to bother with getting the lowly mistletoe to take the promise, so Loki, the {{Jerkass}} [[TricksterArchetype Trickster]], made an arrow out of mistletoe and tricked Baldur's blind twin brother Hod into shooting Baldur with it, killing him dead.)\\
