* The storyline for ''[[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 Transformers: Kiss Players]]'' feat--[[{{Lolicon}} no, wait!]] [[{{Squick}} Come]] [[CanonDiscontinuity back!]] Ahem. ''In addition'' to its more (in)famous elements, the ''Kiss Players'' storyline features a woman who has this as her motivation--her daughter was killed in an accident involving a Transformer, so she, having apparently watched too much ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', starts doing all kinds of nasty things in hopes of bringing her back while putting on a show of protecting Earth from horrible monsters.

* In ''Series/KamenRiderWizard'', it is eventually revealed that [[spoiler: the White Wizard, Sou Fueki]] performed the Sabbath and manipulated the events which followed in an attempt to resurrect [[spoiler: his daughter, Koyomi]].
* In ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'', one of the Riders' wish is to revive their sister who was killed by another Rider. In fact, [[spoiler:[[ThereCanBeOnlyOne the entire war]]]] had this as its primary goal, as [[spoiler:the person holding it has it rigged so that his [[TheDragon Rider]] can steal the prize and save his sister]].
* ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' has an AntiVillain who doesn't care about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt and only cares about reviving his wife who died prior to the show. While he has an item that makes him effectively a God, [[MagicAIsMagicA he's unable to use it on said wife]]. It actually becomes a bit of a plot point, as his resident MadScientist is able to coax him into letting him use a machine to revive his wife in trade for said item. However, the machine is destroyed not long after its creation and [[spoiler:both the AntiVillain and MadScientist die before ever knowing if it worked or not... [[MindScrew Nor do the audience]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/BeyondTwoSouls'': [[spoiler:Nathan Dawkins]] slowly becomes obsessed with bringing his wife and daughter back from the dead after he lost them in a tragic car accident. He eventually found a way to partially faze them back into the mortal world, which clearly left them in a state of constant agony, but he's too delusional to admit this to himself even after Jody uses her powers to let him talk to them. [[spoiler:He then decides to shut off the containment field on the Condenser, which would cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt by merging the realm of the dead with that of the living.]]

** Odin himself is a necromantic, being able to resurrect the dead, usually to consult them for their wisdom. Considering what revenants are like in Norse Mythology (read the entry on ''[[OurVampiresAreDifferent draugr]]'' on TheOtherWiki) you can tell why he did not do that to Baldr.

* One of the ultimate goals of comic book {{supervillain}} SelfDemonstrating/DrDoom, along with the destruction of nemesis Reed Richards and the conquest of Earth, was the resurrection of his beloved mother (or at least, saving her from hell). Ultimately, he was able to do so, but only by forcing his mother to renounce her love for him. No wonder he's always so pissed.

** The main plot of the first game, ''Koudelka'', revolved around the game's villain trying to resurrect a loved one. It does not turn out well.
