* In the ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' episode "The Deep End", Dipper gives Mabel's mer-man boyfriend Mermando "reverse CPR" (spitting mouthfuls of water into his mouth) to keep him from drying out and suffocating.
* Done on ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' for an in-universe television show where Arnold and Helga win a sand castle contest and get to be on the show. Arnold is playing a boy who's drowning and gets rescued by the life guards, however, Helga pushes them aside and goes straight for the kill... I mean, kiss of life. However she turns it into a kiss rather than just mouth-to-mouth ressucitation.

* ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy'' - fireman Ren goes into a dead faint trying to rescue a female FatSlob. She gives him mouth-to-mouth, inflating him like a balloon with each breath - he comes to, gets a [[GrossUpCloseUp good look at her]], shrieks and faints again.

* [[TheHero Yusei]] on ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' suggests that this might be necessary for [[TheLancer Jack]] after he crashes his Duel Runner during a Turbo Duel. Jack's UnwantedHarem girls are only too happy to volunteer.

* Averted - in more than one way - during ''ComicBook/TheCloneSaga''; Ben is about to try this on Phil Stacy (both are fleeing from assassins hired on the behalf of the Friends of humanity) but Phil comes to on his own and shouts "Don't even ''think'' about it!". (Not that Ben had been very eager to try it.)

** Happanes at least twice - Martha brings the Doctor back to life/consciousness, in Smith and Jones. Also, in the episode "Utopia", she tries this on Jack, not knowing that he can't die. The Doctor stops her before Jack can wake up, but the first thing he says? "Was someone kissing me?" Then he looks back and forth between the Doctor and Martha, as if figuring out which one he'd be kissed by.

* ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119809/ Nowhere]]'' - Dingbat has a crush on Ducky, and tries to kiss him at one point, only to chip his tooth with her braces. He tries to drown himself in the pool. So she pulls him out and needs only to breathe into his mouth once in order to save him.

* ''Black Widow'' (1987). The female FBI agent and the FemmeFatale she's investigating first meet during a scuba-diving course where they practice this trope on each other, an early sign of their LesYay FoeRomanceSubtext.

* At the end of the first season finale in ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'', [[spoiler: Gwen kissed Jack after his HeroicSacrifice and he awakened. He may have just revived under his own power, though as he awoke, the first thing he said was thanking Gwen]].

* In one later episode of ''Series/StargateSG1'', someone who ''really'' should be more mature freaks out when he might have to give mouth-to-mouth to General Hammond, and is profoundly relieved when he wakes up on his own. (The force of head-to-wall contact prevents me from [[EasyAmnesia remembering any more details]].)

* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'': In episode "Marabounta", Ulrich almost drowns at the pool after belly-flopping in the water. It is unclear whether he's hoping for Yumi to give him mouth-to-mouth afterward (he does blink, but seems still out of it). Unfortunately, it's Jim Moralès who does save him.

* Attempted in episode 15 of ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'', with Sadlygrove on an unconscious Evangelyne. But Eva wakes up a split-second before the kiss, and instead gives Grovy a faceful of jellyfish.

* In the ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'', the Mord-Sith's Kiss of Life becomes a staple strategy for everything the protagonists need to do. While it does show up in the original work (Literature/SwordOfTruth) exactly as portrayed, the adaptation does it significantly more frequently. But then, as the director, would you ever pass up a chance to watch Tabrett Bethel kiss someone?



* This was retained in ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'', except in the TV series, the Kiss of Life is explicitly magical, which is good considering the first time it's used is to revive someone who was killed via sword-through-the-gut.

* ''Film/SuicideSquad'': After the Jokermobile crashes into the river, Batman knocks Harley Quinn out and pulls her from the wreck. Back on the surface, he notices she is not breathing and starts to perform mouth-to-mouth. As soon as he does so, she wakes up and smooches him.

From the disgusted look on Batman's face, the FoeYay is entirely one-sided.
