* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable'', [[spoiler:Okuyasu is seemingly killed during the final battle, only to return in BigDamnHeroes fashion. He explains that he had a dream where he saw [[GoIntoTheLight a bright light]] and met his dead brother Keicho and realized that he must have died. However Keicho, who'd always done the thinking for both of them, told Okuyasu that it was time for him to decide for himself what he was going to do; he decided to return to Morioh and help his friends, and woke up just in time to save Josuke.]]

* A variant in ''VideoGame/MurderedSoulSuspect'' has detective Ronan thrown out a fourth-story window while chasing a serial killer in the beginning of the game. When he sees his body lying on the street, he initially thinks he's dead, but notices some movement. He tries to return to his body, but it's unknown whether or not it would've worked, as the killer shows up and shoots him ''[[NoKillLikeOverkill seven times]]'' just to be safe.

* The entire film of ''Film/{{Flatliners}}'' is a plot built around this.

* The entire film of ''Film/{{Flatliners}}'' is a plot built around this. The protagonists are medical students ''purposely'' inflicting these on themselves so they can record what the afterlife looks like. It's a kind of IronicHell where they're faced with the vengeful spirits of the people they wronged in their lives. They can only stop the spirits tormenting them by [[CrossingTheBurntBridge making peace with the people they wronged]]. [[spoiler:In the one case this does become a problem when the person in question themselves [[DeadAllAlong died years ago]]...]]

A character almost dies, but is given a chance to or is forced to return. Often overlaps with ItIsNotYourTime. Sometimes overlaps with NearDeathClairvoyance. If the near-death is a near-suicide, may overlap with ItsAWonderfulPlot. To some extent TruthInTelevision, and heavily overlaps with DontFearTheReaper.

* In a rare serious arc of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', Ryouga dies when the superhumanly-strong Lime crushes his windpipe. He finds himself in a field of flowers with a river in the distance, and his grandpa and grandma yelling, from the other side of the river, not to come closer. But when he hallucinates Akane happily saying goodbye to him, together with Ranma, Ryouga is [[BigNo shocked]] back to life, depressed enough to summon the [[KiAttacks Shishi Hokodan]] and crush Lime with it.

In a rare serious arc of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', Ryouga arc, Ryōga dies when the superhumanly-strong Lime crushes his windpipe. He finds himself in a field of flowers with a river in the distance, and his grandpa and grandma yelling, from the other side of the river, not to come closer. But when he hallucinates Akane happily saying goodbye to him, together with Ranma, Ryouga Ryōga is [[BigNo shocked]] back to life, depressed enough to summon the [[KiAttacks Shishi Hokodan]] and crush Lime with it.it.
** This is parodied in a later, much more comedic story, where Ranma, Ryōga and Mousse are competing to eat horribly bad-tasting noddles. The food is so lethally bad, all three fall unconscious and find themselves on the shore of the same river, with Ryōga commenting that he'd already been there before.



* TheJoker nearly dies at the end of the ''Last Laugh'' crossover. This is possibly the first time the reader is able to experience one of his numerous brushes with death with him.
* Comicbook/ThePunisher has this in ''ComicBook/ThePunisherBorn''. [[spoiler: At the end, during the big battle, he makes a deal with Death. He is given the option of dying there in Nam or having supernatural protection and thusly, a guarantee to see his family again. But the latter option will have a price. Hint: it's his family.]]

* Lampooned in ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty'', where it happened to Opus, but made very little sense. (The guy who told him ItIsNotYourTime was famed high school principal Joe Clark, who "expelled" him to send him back to the living world, and reminded him to watch ''Film/LeanOnMe'', which had just been released.)

** Tarvek's sister Anevka was saved from her near-death experience, following her involvement in one of her father's experiments, by Tarvek connecting her barely-living body to a clank that she would be able to control. [[spoiler: This didn't exactly go as planned, as according to Tarvek her body died anyway, and the clank continued living Anevka's life without realising it wasn't her.]]
** Tarvek has had a couple of other near-death experiences separate from his illness and the Si Vales Valeo - one when he was stabbed and then shot in Sturmhalten, and then another when he was stabbed by Martellus and poisoned with something that should have made him ''dissolve'' within half an hour. [[spoiler: Luckily for him, that was when the Baron set off the timestop, and Gil was able to heal him once he pulled him back into realtime.]]

* The ''{{Dilbert}}'' animated series had an entire episode revolving around this. Dilbert gets hit in the head in a gas station parking lot and winds up seeing the afterlife, which, much to his chagrin, turns out to be an office cubicle in the middle of a white void. He recieves a second head injury near the climax of the episode, where he finds that ''Wally'' is now in a cubicle next to his (in accordance with the beliefs of the Wallyites, a cult who had established a religion based on Wally due to a series of events during the episode).
