* The [[DeusEstMachina AI gods]] of OrionsArm are so invulnerable that one of them engineered an all out war against itself just so it didn't have to expend any energy scraping off some outdated armor.

* The [[DeusEstMachina AI gods]] of OrionsArm are so invulnerable that one of them engineered an all out war against itself just so it didn't have to expend any energy scraping off some outdated armor. It's theoretically possible to kill one, but only another AI god would have the means to do so, and they tend to prefer manipulation and extremely long-term plotting to direct combat.

* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' has [[OneManArmy the]] [[TheJuggernaut Meta]], who has survived the following: a missile pod missile, sustained Gatling gun fire, [[spoiler:[[OneManArmy Tex]], several point-blank shotgun rounds, a knife in both shoulders and ''getting stabbed in the torso with the energy sword''.]]
** [[spoiler: In the space of 5 minutes, he took a sniper round to the chest, 9 pistol rounds to the throat, a collision at high speeds with big-rig truck and finally falling off a bridge. All it cost him was his voice.]]
** Since he was 'killed' by latching him to a warthog and then pushing said warthog over a cliff it's not guaranteed that he's dead since it wasn't shown if they found the body or not.

* In R.A. Salvatore's ''TheClericQuintet'' book 3 ''The Night Masks'', the leader of the eponymous assassins' guild is Ghost - a scrawny, withered man who doesn't look at all imposing. [[spoiler:He combines the Regeneration method (a Ring of Regeneration is hidden in his shoe, presumably around a toe) with the Multiple Bodies trick - he possesses an artifact, a Mirror that allows him to swap souls with someone, then kills his own fragile body with his victim's hand. When his body dies the victim's soul departs, Ghost then waits for the body to regenerate then uses the artifact to swap back, putting his soul back in his body and leaving the victim unharmed but soulless and therefore dead. The artifact in question is so powerful that it pulls Ghost's soul out of hell and back into his corpse after he is later finally killed, and has to be destroyed by the breath of an ancient red dragon... and the resulting explosion blinds the dragon in question. And if ALL THAT wasn't good enough, he has Vander, a huge giant-like humanoid called a Firbolg, as a slave with whom he will frequently forcefully swap bodies if the situation demands. Yeah.]]

* ''{{Bionicle}}'' featured Vezon and Fenrakk. When [[CursedWithAwesome cursed]] by the Mask of Life, they gained the power to absorb any energy tossed at them and get stronger. Even throwing them in lava did not help, they just came out bigger. They were stopped by freezing time and removing the mask, but even after that, Vezon still has a knack for not dying.

* In the IncarnationsOfImmortality series, the Incarnations are nigh invulnerable [[spoiler:unless they explicitly or implicitly allow it, such as when Death changes offices]]
* The ''WildCards'' series had Demise, an undead and unhinged assassin whose wild card triggered during a near death experience. He ended up getting a healing factor that allowed him to return from the dead. When his head was chopped off by a similarly psychotic Ace, Dr. Tachyon analyzed the corpse and realized that ''his head was growing back''. He ordered the body cremated, and while Demise hasn't shown up in any other books yet, well...
** ''WildCards'' also had Golden Boy, a classic comic-book FlyingBrick (without the flying) who, when hit by anything up to a 50 millimeter artillery shell, would merely glow yellow instead of getting injured. According to Dr. Tachyon, Golden Boy projected a biological forcefield around his body whenever threatened by imminent danger, whether he was aware of this danger or not.

Added DiffLines:

** Multiscale provides a downplayed example. Cutting in half the damage done when you are at full health, and naturally found on the already incredibly resilient Lugia and Dragonite, both pokemon will likely laugh against anything that you throw it if they have the ability active, even super-effective moves. Even most Ice moves fail to OHKO Dragonite, even with the x4 weakness.

* [[CoolAirship Zeppelins]] during early WorldWarOne fell under the "made of air" category, much to the dismay of the British defenders, who tried almost everything to shoot them down, to no avail. They tried MoreDakka. Passed right through, didn't even slow them down. They tried [[MacrossMissileMassacre rockets and artillery.]] They couldn't explode on impact with fabric. They even tried using an exploding FlechetteStorm. By 1916, ''not a single one had been shot down.'' But then, they finally turned the tables with incendiary ammunition, which could [[StuffBlowingUp ignite]] the [[MadeOfExplodium Zeppelins']] [[AchillesHeel hydrogen.]]

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', Estelle has a spell that temporarily grants Made of Diamond status. She also has an ability that, when equipped, has a chance of making all buffs, including this one, last until the end of battle. This combo (removed from the PS3 version) is a rather easy GameBreaker to put together, particularly useful in extremely long battles.

** This film is also notable for deconstructing it. Early in the film, Clark held up a portion of the oil derrick, and while he was strong enough to lift it and durable enough to not get crushed by its weight, the floor beneath his feet gave way. Also, during [[spoiler: The battle between Clark, Nam-ek and Faora-el,]] the military comes into play to intervene. So, high-speed jets [[GatlingGood come in firing heavy gatling guns.]] Normal handguns aren't able to even faze the Kryptonians, but gatling guns are probably the most powerful machine guns ever created, and while they're durable enough to withstand the bullet impacts without damage, they follow the laws of motion and conservation of energy, and send the Kryptonians flying a short distance away. Later, Faora gets hit with a high-speed homing missile dead-center in her face, which was enough to send her flying a considerable distance, and knocked her out, showing that they have their limits.

** ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'': It is revealed that even if a Kryptonian is dead, their bodies are still almost indestructible. The scientists studying General Zod's corpse explain that they couldn't cut him open until they discovered kryptonite.
