* [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor Who]] has this for the Time Lords: for fifteen or so hours after a Time Lord regenerates, they can easily heal from any injury they sustain, like [[Recap/DoctorWho2005CSTheChristmasInvasion growing back lost body parts]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E8LetsKillHitler laughing off gunshot wounds]].
* A common rule in the children's game of Tag is "no tag-backs", meaning that once a person has been tagged as "It", the person who tagged them must be allowed to get away without being tagged right back.
* Gengoro from ''Manga/UQHolder'' has a form of immortality that works similar to a video game character. Every time he loses a "life", he spawns a brand new body that is immune to all damage for exactly three seconds (complete with timer).
* This is an important plot-point in the animated webcomic Webcomic/KidRadd where the main character is a classic {{Platformer}} sprite, complete with MercyInvincibility, MadeOfIron, and no EdgeGravity.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}'' series averts this, except in later games when you get knocked down. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2451HI5jjY XSEED's trailers]] for ''The Oath in Felghana'' even use this as a selling point!

** The Hard version of RomHack ''RockmanNoConstancy'' '''actually removes this.''' Needless to say, this turns the whole game into PlatformHell.

** Even more literally, a later buff made it so Mercy herself is invincible while using her Ultimate.

* Arms Race mode in ''VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}}: Global Offensive'' makes you invulnerable for the first few seconds after respawning (or until you shoot), in case some wiseguy on the enemy team tries to camp your spawn area.

* The Custom-TF ''{{Quake}}'' mod had a purchasable "Respawn guard," preventing all damage for about 3 seconds after you respawn. It's tied for the least expensive upgrade (at 25 points, out of usually around 10,000), so almost everyone gets it.

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', appropriate to the trope name, provides a second of invincibility to characters who are resurrected by Mercy.

* In ''VideoGame/ThetaVsPi7'' Theta is a one hit point wonder normally, but if he has a shield it will kill his enemy instead of him. This still leaves him vulnerable (if say he gets hit by a second enemy from the other direction). If Theta has a wizard hat, he will be teleported to safety when hit but would still be vulnerable once he gets there (though he does go to the top of the screen where enemies can't normally reach).
