* 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.

* [[spoiler: Jacob Crow]] in ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters'' achieves immortality by merging himself with one of these, or turning himself into one, it would seem. The good? He is immortal and can time-travel at will. The bad? His [[BodyHorror body is plastered to a giant bipedal mech, and he has absolutely no hands whatsoever]].
* In ''MetalGearSolid4'', [[spoiler:Vamp, who previously demonstrated his immortality in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'', is revealed to have nanomachines [[DoingInTheWizard (what else?)]] in his body that enhance his already impressive [[HealingFactor natural healing abilities]], making him practically immortal. Naturally, the only way to beat him later on is to inject him with a shot that supresses his nanomachines.]]

** [[http://magiccards.info/zen/en/200.html Eternity Vessel]], [[http://magiccards.info/som/en/193.html Platinum Emperion]], and [[http://magiccards.info/v15/en/13.html Platinum Angel]] keep you alive by putting you in pseudo-stasis.
** In a meta sense, making it to a Pro Tour ensures immortality by works, especially if you make it to the top 8.

* ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' has two episodes ("The Evil of Doctor Dark" and "The Return of Doctor Dark") whose plots revolve around the search for the three pieces of the Orb of Konos which, when fully assembled, has the power to grant immortality.



* Certain mutations in genes such as BRCA 1, Rb, c-Myc ''et al.'' can prevent your cells from dying after a preset number of divisions. Unforunately, scientists call this condition ''cancer''. So while your individual cells become immortal (the tumour cells taken from the body of Henrietta Lacks are still alive today; they will continue to live as long as the field of biology exists), ''you'' will die.
