* ''Made Of Air'': Going the opposite direction, there doesn't seem to be something to fight... but that "something" can fight ''you''. Either they have the power of SuperSmoke or {{Intangibility}} completely at will so that you can't attack them, or they may exist in some form that makes direct confrontation just not possible (an AstralProjection, for example, or an ElementalShapeshifter whose composing element is too malleable to be directly harmed with any sort of physical force). * ''Made Of Liquid'', AKA ''[[BlobMonster The Blob]]'': a common variant of this, when the character is made of some sort of fluid stuff that makes him tangible, but completely impervious to damage with bludgeoning or piercing weapons.

** ''Can Only Kill Part Of Him'': FightingAShadow. Basically the whatsit that you were fighting was just its... "representation" in the same world. Killing its body in this dimensional plane is a mild setback... if at all, as it can grow that back very quickly or replace it. Technically not that different from [[BackFromTheDead Resurrection]] from the mortals' point of view, but distinct in that the actual entity never died- only their current physical manifestation. Usually applies to gods, demons, and perhaps [[EldritchAbomination Cosmic Horror]].

* Paul in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached''. He needs it, since he's holding a shitload of energy inside him and would explode quite thoroughly without it. He is literally Made Of Diamond; his hair, nails, and teeth are either diamond or diamond-like. Presumably his bones are diamond too. He has so far been invulnerable to most everything, including dragon fire, but he has no resistance to intangible things like wraiths, and the Hunter's {{BFS}} once cut him just enough to draw blood.

* ''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.

* ''Film/TheAddamsFamily''. It's not really clear what nature their invulnerability is, of how it works since it's entirely played for laughs. Lurch takes a 20 pound bowling ball to the head from a dozen stories up and barely notices, so it may be they're all Made Of Diamond, but it also extends to poisons, electrocution, and anything else they can get a gag out of. When Debbie aims a gun at him (after blowing up the house with Uncle Fester inside, which he walks away from without harm) Fester thinks she's flirting with him. They apparently use cyanide as a ''condiment.'' Even electrocuting Uncle Fester just lets him power a lightbulb with his mouth. ''Nothing'' stops them.

** Jason Voorhees from ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' progresses into it in ''Film/JasonX'', being given [[HealingFactor regenerative powers]], explaining why he can't be killed. When he morphs into ▄ber Jason, he becomes more Made Of Diamond than he already was. In ''Film/FreddyVsJason'', it's outright stated that he's immortal (since not even ''Freddy Krueger'' could kill him). Jason has the partial justification of being dead to begin with (he drowned as a kid).

** This characteristic led to some fan skepticism when ''Film/FreddyVsJason'' was announced. By their series' respective finales both Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees had morphed into for all intents and purposes immortal beings, so what's the point in a fight when neither side can win? One of them does win by the end (or technically, [[spoiler:the humans do while the other killer is still standing]]), but even that was muddled by the SequelHook. When they do fight directly, it's pretty much Made Of Diamond versus FightingAShadow. [[spoiler:When dragged into the real world Freddy is significantly weaker, although [[BroughtDownToBadass he's still pretty good competition]] to Jason]].

* The Shrike from the ''Literature/HyperionCantos'', and [[spoiler:Rhadamanth Nemes]] in the ''Endymion'' half of the series, would qualify as Trope Codifiers if the series was better known. The Shrike [[spoiler:attacks the [[EliteMooks Swiss Guard]], supposedly the greatest soldiers in charted space, and kills them all without sustaining any damage. [[spoiler:Nemes]] is attacked by a starship that blasts her with a massive laser that only succeeds in melting the ground she'd standing on and encasing her in stone for a while. Even later, the Shrike punches her through about eight metres through solid rock. And the Shrike itself is more than just Made Of Diamond, since it possesses [[spoiler:control over time and space]] even if you did manage to kill the Shrike it wouldn't accomplish anything.

** Honorary mention to Mr. Shine from ''Discworld/{{Thud}}!''. While ordinary trolls are made out of various kinds of silicate, Mr. Shine is literally Made Of Diamond.

** The One Ring itself is of the standard Made Of Diamond variety. The only thing that will destroy is to throw it back into the fires of Mount Doom where it was forged. The entire series then revolves around accomplishing this. As Sauron's SoulJar, it conveys similar NighInvulnerability to him, and he was already quite resilient to begin with.

** Nightwielder uses the Made Of Air variant. He is permanently intangible unless exposed to sunlight (or more specifically UV light). Since his other talent is summoning and controlling shadows, that's pretty powerful. ** Steelheart uses the Made Of Diamond variety. Bullets, nukes, TouchOfDeath, none have any effect on him. The book's plot revolves around the fact that the hero's father is the ''only'' person ever to wound Steelheart, and the Reckoners have to figure out how he did it. [[spoiler: Turns out Steelheart can only be harmed by someone who isn't afraid of him.]]

** ''Can Only Kill Part Of Him'': Anubis is a half-ascended EnergyBeing, something less than the Ancients but still effectively immortal. Destroying his physical container or his host only releases his essence, which is indestructible as it's only an avatar of his higher-dimensional form. The only way to positively kill him is by collective vote of the Ancients, which they refuse to do. [[spoiler:Trapping him in eternal battle works too, although that technically only deactivates both him and his opponent.]]

* In ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 3'', the Dullahans have Made Of Diamond shields that can only be penetrated by a hard-to-pull-off attack. The D÷ppelganger is a shadow-entity that is invincible outside of the light, and Dante's acquisition of it makes it invincible even ''in'' light, i.e. fully invincible. It probably would laugh at the idea that GoodIsDumb. Boss Vergil in his Devil Trigger state is also invincible, in addition to regenerating any damage he might have sustained in human form. Just-timed usage of Royal Guard also makes Dante invincible to any attack; Perhaps predictably, [[CutsceneIncompetence the cutscenes never show him touching it]].

* Archimonde has this in the final mission of ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} 3'' where the objective is not to kill him but merely to stall his advance for half an hour. Oddly, while his armor is Made Of Diamond, he still takes 1 damage per hit and thus can theoretically be killed by massing archers (though he has an Ankh of Reincarnation and thus must be killed twice).

* The comic-book-genre-based MMORPG ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' includes the Made Of Diamond, Made Of Air (sort of), and Regeneration variants all as power sets for melee fighter player characters, as "Invulnerability", "Super Reflexes", and "Regeneration" respectively, as well as the "Willpower" set which combines elements of all three. In addition, some powers can create a state of intangibility, in which the affected character can neither affect nor be affected by anything.

** In the games Laharl is Made Of Diamond, easily shaking of physical abuse from Flonne and Etna, even heavy abuse after a few hours nap, without a single scratch and talking like he did not even feel pain. An example of CutscenePowerToTheMax, considering that his defense stat is only average gameplay wise.

* 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.

* In the Literature/WhateleyUniverse, they have all of the above. Lancer (and plenty of the villains) is Made Of Diamond. Phase and Jinn Sinclair are Made Of Air (due to completely different powers). Aqueous is [[BlobMonster the Blob]], being composed of living water. Jody Cooms is Made Of Rubber and even calls herself Plastic Girl. Carmilla and Tennyo have the regeneration thing down: Carmilla has been torn in half, and another time decapitated (she was meditating and literally didn't notice until she found the decapitated head which also hadn't died); both fall into the projected avatar/FightingAShadow category. The unstoppable supervillain Deathlist is of the GoodThingYouCanHeal type: he's a forcefield-protected head on a robot body with the ability to teleport the head to safety in the worst case scenario; he has killed more superheroes than any other villain in history.

* In ''Literature/DeadWest'', this applies to quite a few aristocrats. The Porcelain Doctor has this, of course, since he is a very powerful ''[[HealingFactor Medice]]'', and has psychic armor and shield. His big brother is Made Of Diamond, and both have enough willpower to stand and fight even after sustaining life-threatening injuries.

* Vilgax from ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' is not only Made Of Diamond to the point where he lived through being attached to a nuclear warhead as it was used to blow up his ship, but he has a tank full of healing fluid in case his next ship blows up partially, giving him Regeneration while he's in there. He's the ImplacableMan's ImplacableMan.

His AchillesHeel? The spinning helicopter tail rotor.

* ''Multiple Bodies'': The classic power of the HiveMind. Killing one body [[Franchise/StarTrek is irrelevant]]; at worst, it will reduce its cognitive abilities; more often, though, the only way to kill him is to kill ''all'' of him, as even one survivor may be able to recreate a whole new army of selves.

Th distinction between Body Backup Drive, Body Surf, and Remote Body tropes are distinct in their respective tropes, and they should stay that way here.
* ''[[SpareBodyParts External Repair/Spare Body Parts]]'': Like regeneration/regrowth, but external. Most common with [[EasilyDetachableRobotParts machines]], but occasionally works for the undead or {{Cyborg}}s, and sometimes even a skilled {{Mad Doctor}} can pull this off with living organisms. Chop off an arm? Meh, if it's too damaged to reattach, no big deal: it's replaceable. [[ChunkySalsaRule Blown into tiny chunks?]] That might take a little longer, but can sometimes still be fixed.

The PhysicalGod, ImplacableMan, TheJuggernaut, IntangibleMan, BlobMonster, IronButtMonkey, TheChewToy, and anything MadeOfIndestructium all probably have some form of Nigh Invulnerability.

* ''[[RemoteBody The Proxy]]'': When a person makes use of other bodies or identities in order to conceal themselves and avoid direct contact, therefore reducing risk of injury/death. The proxy could take the form of a remote-control robot, a cloned flesh puppet, or a body double.If the proxy is encountered often enough, it can give the ''semblance'' of invulnerability.

When mortally damaged, an enemy has access to other bodies (or worse, has the ability to possess another's body) and can move its consciousness to it, with possibly reforming that body to the appearance and capabilities of its original host.

Sometimes you [[CompleteImmortality CAN'T]] [[KillTheGod kill a god]]. It's physically and theologically impossible. However other gods can sometimes kill gods, so they do technically fit the "nigh" part. ** ''Divine Protection'': The character itself is not a god, but can survive anything due to intervention of a favorable god/guardian angel/spirit of parent that has been [[AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence 'struck down and become more powerful than you can possibly imagine']]. ** ''Can Only Kill Part Of Him'': FightingAShadow. Basically the whatsit that you were fighting was just its... "representation" in the same world. Killing its body in this dimensional plane is a mild setback... if at all, as it can grow that back very quickly or replace it. Technically not that different from [[BackFromTheDead Resurrection]] from the mortals' point of view, but distinct in that the actual entity never died- only their current physical manifestation. Usually applies to gods, demons, and CosmicHorror. * ''[[RemoteBody The Proxy]]'': When a person makes use of other bodies or identities in order to conceal themselves and avoid direct contact, therefore reducing risk of injury/death. The proxy could take the form of a remote-control robot, a cloned flesh puppet, or a victim of mind control/possession, and may have forms of invulnerabilities themselves. If the proxy is encountered often enough, it can give the ''semblance'' of invulnerability. Can be considered a variant of HiveMind and FightingAShadow above if possession (and thus shared mind) is involved.

* ''[[SpareBodyParts External Repair/Spare Body Parts]]'': Like regeneration/regrowth, but external, most common with [[EasilyDetachableRobotParts machines]] but occasionally works for the undead or supernatural foes. Chop off an arm? Meh, if it's too damaged to reattach, no big deal: it's replaceable. Blown into tiny chunks? Allies or drones will show up and rebuild. In some cases, they can modify themselves, or even abandon their body entirely after building a new one to transfer into.

* SpongeBobSquarepants might seem like an average kitchen sponge with limbs & a face, but he is much more durable then that. Cut his arms off? He'll regrow them. Tear him in half? Those halfs will rejoin with eachother. Remove his internal organs? He can ''regrow them too''. Even today, he's suffered very few injuries that left him in the hospital. Punch him with all your might? You'll collapse from exhaustion before managing to injure him in the slightest.
