* Gillian's insistence on trying to resurrect her accidentally poisoned boyfriend in the 1998 film ''Film/PracticalMagic'' is the catalyst for a ''lot'' of later trouble for both her and her sister Sally. ** Of course, this is less about wanting her beloved back and more about trying to avoid a murder charge; Sally accidentally killed him by giving him a dose of belladonna to keep him from trying to kill Gillian. * The plot of ''Film/{{The Mummy|1999}}'' revolves around the BigBad trying to resurrect his lover, an ancient Egyptian queen. Interestingly, his own resurrection was a lot easier than hers. ** For the simple fact that he didn't die and go to the afterlife like her, he was cursed with undeath. Meaning his soul remained in that dried-up piece of jerky that passed for a body, bound to protect the Book of the Dead. Which those Americans stole. Also, he was eaten alive by scarabs. You try to rest in peace with that going on.

* ''Franchise/ChaosRings'' ''III'' features a particular twisted subversion. SerialKiller Drei 6 wants to bring a woman back to life and has been abducting and harvesting people to create a Gene capable of resurrecting her. During the HopelessBossFight after TheReveal, he confesses that the only reason he's doing this is because [[spoiler:he ''really'' enjoyed killing her. He wants to be able to resurrect her so he can kill her over and over again.]] To twist the knife further, said woman was [[spoiler:party member Al's wife.]]

* This is a fairly common theme in [[NativeAmericanMythology Native American]] legends, though it is generally the hero doing it. (Still never seems to work out well, though.) Expect AnAesop about how we're supposed to accept death, mourn, then move on.

* In Norse mythology Loki has Baldr, the most well loved of the gods, killed. Frigg, Baldr's mother, then sends an emissary to Hel, the goddess of the Underworld, begging her to bring him back to life. Hel says that they can have him if they have everything in the world cry for him. Earth, sky and everything in between - in other words: it's not going to happen! The gods try though, and fail as the last person in the world they have not asked, an old giantess (often depicted as being Loki in disguise), refuses to cry. The tale is about the inevitability and finality of Death, whom even the gods can not fully control.
