* In ''Literature/PresidentsVampire, pretty much nothing apart from nuclear blast, really hot fire or direct sunlight could kill Cade, and if provided with blood, he can heal from those as well. When he meets head-on with a car, he looks as if nothing happen, and the car is pretty much impossible to use anymore.

* An example from ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': Wolfgang von Uberwald in ''The Fifth Elephant'', being a werewolf, survives any number of horrific experiences until [[spoiler:Vimes uses a signal flare to [[KillItWithFire destroy him with fire]].]]

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos: Fairtheora is an orc, which makes him pretty tough already, and then he wears a special suit of metal armor that amplifies his resistance to magic. In addition to this is his [[BarrierWarrior formidable spirit barrier]]. His job description as "royal sentinel" means he has to be tough enough that the sitting Ataidar monarch can stand behind him and be perfectly safe regardless of what comes her way.



*** The reason this works is because they are composed of layers, each twice as durable as the previous layer and starting at the durability of aluminum. There are ''two hundred'' of these layers between the skin and the core (the only vital part), resulting in a durability that is several orders of magnitude into BeyondTheImpossible territory. The exact numbers are [[http://www.reddit.com/r/Parahumans/comments/2s1gem/community_readthrough_discussion_thread_week_24/cnlb9yf here]], and confirmed by WordOfGod [[http://www.reddit.com/r/whowouldwin/comments/2sju2u/the_endbringers_worm_vs_the_justice_league/cnqkz88 here]].

* Lord Maledict from ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'', being both a PhysicalGod and a HumanoidAbomination, has this. He completely no sells every single attack from Sonic and his friends, even in their Super forms. However, because of his sheer power, his physical body is slowly dying off on its own.

* The [[SpaceMarine Rubric Marines]] from ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'' are nearly indestructible due to the severe technologic gap. Their {{Powered Armor}}s are too sturdy and advanced.

* ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' has the Alicorns and Draconequi, who are {{Physical God}}s. While they ''can'' die, it takes an unholy amount of punishment to do so and being spirits, the only way to TRULY kill one is with [[EldritchAbomination Entropy's]] power or special supernatural weapons. Otherwise just their mortal form is destroyed and they survive, only they can no longer manifest in the mortal world. They're the Made of Diamond and HealingFactor types, as they're extremely hard to hurt and can regenerate from nearly any damage (Alicorns by regenerating, Draconequi by ''erasing'' damage). Rancor, the Draconequi of Passions, Violence, and Revenge, has the added bonus of being immune to physical violence, meaning the only way to actually hurt her is to use methods that don't qualify as violence. However, being a young Draconequus (relatively speaking) she hasn't learned to erase damage yet and has to recharge herself to heal from damage.

** The Elders. They're TheOmnipotent and EldritchAbomination level beings, so killing them is next to impossible and even avatars of them can be ungodly difficult to take down. In addition, they're Multiversal Singularities, meaning even if you kill one they're still alive in every other universe they exist in.

Added DiffLines:

* The main protagonists of WesternAnimation/KingStarKing seem to be practically unkillable, because they usually just reform themselves after even the most gruesome of mutilations. The pilot episode really shows this ability off by having the titular character heal himself completely after '' having all of his internal organs torn out with a machine gun and getting hit with a nuclear Easter Bunny egg''.

* Prior to 3rd edition, ''lots'' of D&D monsters had Nigh Invulnerability to weapons below a certain "plus" value, meaning that heroes without such equipment could only defeat them with spells, fire, or improvised alternative methods (e.g. holding a werewolf underwater until it drowns). This rule got the nickname "You Must Be This Tall To Fight This Monster", and was fortunately replaced with damage resistance in 3E.

* ''Extreme Luck'': You don't need to be invincible when you never get hit.
** ''[[BornLucky Dumb Luck/Crazy Luck]]'': The clumsy hero/heroine can dodge everything just because of extreme luck. HilarityEnsues when the character is a MilesGloriosus who ''believes'' they are [[SuperToughness Made of Diamond]] but are actually this, or the {{Cloudcuckoolander}} leisurely strolls through BulletHell.
** ''[[BeyondTheImpossible Impossibly Good Luck]]'': They charge headlong at a machine gun, and win. Often paired with TheDeterminator- not all of the bullets miss, [[OnlyAFleshWound just the lethal ones]]. Expect an OhCrap moment when paired with TheBerserker. Also the constant dissapointment of a chronic DeathSeeker.
** ''[[WindsOfDestinyChange REALLY Impossibly Good Luck]]'': Some characters literally have luck on their side, in the form of [[FormulaicMagic crunching the numbers]], [[PsychicPowers only seeming to be relying on luck]], or [[RealityWarper actually changing the odds]].
