* Lord British in the ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' series. He is nearly impossible to kill (if not outright impossible), and even the Armageddon spell, which destroys [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin every person and object in the entire world]] does not affect him. Usually, the only way to kill him involves either [[LordBritishPostulate creative exploits]] or (in one instance) an EasterEgg.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[FeelNoPain No Pain]]'': While you can technically damage them, their lack of pain receptors means that they will just keep coming. Very much DependingOnTheWriter, while a punch to the face will usually be ignored, chopping off a limb will presumably limit anyone's mobility regardless, though some authors raise this to ability to superhuman levels.
** ''[[YouCantKillWhatsAlreadyDead No Pain for the Undead]]'': Lack of pain is justified because the character is a member of the living dead. This usually means that even severe organ damage can just be ignored, though even such characters tend to have limits in how far this can be pushed.

* Dark Samus from the ''{{Metroid}} Prime'' subseries posses extreme regenerative power, mainly since "her" (technically its genderless) body essentially consists of pure Phazon. In ''Metroid Prime 2'', Samus fights her multiple times, and after every fight she explodes into a cloud of Phazon particles, only to reassemble herself later. According to one scan of her, only a complete atomic disruption can kill her for good. [[spoiler:In the 100% ending it's even shown that she survided the destruction of Dark Aether, somehow reforming in space above Aether]]. She is finally killed in ''Metroid Prime 3'' when [[spoiler:she possesses a cybernetic computer connected to the planet Phaaze, which is made primarily out of Phazon. When Samus destroys this form, all Phazon in the galaxy goes critical, destroying Dark Samus, the entire planet, and ridding the galaxy of Phazon once and for all.]]

* In ''{{Pokemon}}'', the ability Wonder Guard causes a Pokemon to take no damage from attacks that it is not normally weak to from its typing. Spiritomb and Sableye have no weaknesses, so if they obtain Wonder Guard they cannot be hit by ordinary attacks. (However, Sableye can only legitimately get Wonder Guard in the third generation; in later games they can only obtain the ability by cheating, since Skill Swap, used to swap Abilities between two Pokemon, deliberately cannot swap Wonder Guard.)

On top of being Anti-Magic, the Smooze easily shrugs off having holes blown in it or getting split in half. Fitting, given that the G1 version's defining trait was how unstoppable it was.

* The eromakasi (eaters of light) in ''Carnivores of Light and Darkness'', ''Into Thinking Kingdoms'', and the ''Journey of the Catechist'' series in general (by Creator/AlanDeanFoster) can only be killed by eromakadi, because they are basically mist, and need to be sucked in. The most powerful mage in the world has two of them as bodyguards. That isn't the only nigh invincible creature around. The wall, a several mile long wall that can walk is also next to invincible, with the main characters just running under it.

* In ''Literature/FineStructure'', the Powers are all of the "made of diamond" version. It takes a diamond-tipped syringe to break Arika's skin, and even not even that will work on Jason. But both of them pale in compairison to Anne Poole, who is possibly the single most indestructible object in existence. [[spoiler:When she gets thrown into a black hole, ''[[RealityBreakingParadox the Universe breaks before she does.]]'']]
* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* High-level characters in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' are very durable. Krieg the Psycho in ''VideoGame/Borderlands2'', as [[MagikarpPower payoff for his openly self-destructive early game]], is much more durable than that - a burning Hellborn Krieg with a nasty elemental weapon, for example, is quite possibly healing faster than the mixture of fire damage and bullets is killing him.

** Their durability has, however, been exaggerated. It is false that they are immune to cancer as claimed by some people, but they are more resistant to it than most organisms.
