* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The [[MacGuffin Mantella]] in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' can cause this. It is an unimaginably powerful soul gem, created by Tiber Septim's Imperial Battlemage, Zurin Arctus, to power the [[RealityWarper reality warping]] [[HumongousMecha Numidium]]. It is said to contain the soul of Wulfharth Ash-King, a Shezarrine (a [[GodInHumanForm mortal incarnation]] of the "dead" creator god, Lorkhan, known as "Shezarr" to the Imperials), who managed to kill (and possibly merge himself with) Arctus with his dying breath, creating the Underking. One of the MultipleEndings is to return the Mantella to the Underking, which will [[WhoWantsToLiveForever finally allow him to die]]. Another ending is to give it to Mannimarco, the King of Worms, who will use it [[DeityOfHumanOrigin to become the God of Worms]].
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', the Heart of Lorkhan is this for the Dunmeri Tribunal, a trio of {{Physical God}}s, and their rival, [[BigBad Dagoth Ur]], who all tapped into the Heart using [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemeri]] tools to achieve godhood. As a result of the game's main quest, [[spoiler:their ties to the Heart are severed, [[NoImmortalInertia killing Dagoth Ur]] but allowing the Tribunal to survive with a trace of their divinity in tact due to the [[GodNeedsPrayerBadly faith of their followers]]]].

* MarvelComics' [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulysses_Bloodstone Ulysses Bloodstone]] is immortal because of a meteorite/gem shard stuck in his chest. At the end of his story, it gets surgically removed by some bad guys and he dies.

* ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'' has a literal fountain of youth that makes the drinker immortal if they drink the entire fountain (which is just a cup). This is how Ban gained his immortality.

* In ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'', everyone in Résurrection [[MerlinSickness ages backwards, turning into babies rather than growing old]]. The only thing capable of preventing that is {{Dracula}}'s dark kiss, which on top of preventing people from aging, grants them an incredibly powerful HealinFactor. Its not very easy to come by, specially since Thurim, one of the previous vampires that gained the kiss, tried to overthrow Dracula in the past and it was nearly impossible to put him down afterwards.

* In ''Franchise/DragonBall'', one of the wishes the Dragons can grant is bestowing immortality. The early villains of ''Z'', Vegeta and Frieza, wanted Earth and later Namek's Dragon Balls for this reason. Though Vegeta only sought them out [[spoiler:because he believed he would only be able to defeat Frieza if he was immortal. He lost interest in immortality after Frieza was defeated.]] The only character known to have achieved immortality this way is Garlic Jr., who seems to have gained CompleteImmortality from it. Unfortunately for him, he was also HoistByHisOwnPetard and sucked into a pocket dimension [[AndIMustScream where he remains indefinitely]].

* The Philosopher's Stones in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. Every character laying claim to immortality possesses at least one, allowing them to regenerate from injuries (including fatal ones); however, this expends their Philosopher's Stones, meaning that a [[{{Badass}} sufficiently]] [[{{Determinator}} tenacious]] opponent can still kill them. It's also possible to destroy their Philosopher's Stones directly through alchemy, or even rip them out [[spoiler:as Envy [[DrivenToSuicide does to himself]] [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath after he's called on his hypocrisy]].]] Exactly how many "lives" a Philosopher's Stone grants is dependent on [[spoiler:how many human souls are contained within it]].

* ''VideoGame/TheTuringTest'': The extremophile found in Europa is in a symbiotic relationship with a virus that repairs the former's damaged DNA, which confers it a resistance to high levels of radiation. According to Soichi's writings, this also prevents the biological aging that is ultimately caused by DNA damage.
