* Wenseslao Moguel was a participant of the [[UsefulNotes/TheMexicanRevolution Mexican Revolution]] and was captured by Federales for fighting with Pancho Vila and his revolutionaries. He was shot nine times by a firing squad before the officer in charge of the execution delivered a coup de grace with his pistol. Moguel somehow managed to survive, wait until the soldiers left, crawled to a church in a nearby town and recovered from his wounds, though was terribly disfigured. He became known as the ''El Fusilado'', the Executed One, and survived into the [[UsefulNotes/TheSeventies 70s.]]

* The ''Film/HomeAlone'' movies, particularly the second. In ''Home Alone 2'', Marv alone should've died 14 times. The most JustForFun/{{egregious}} instance, however, was when Harry's head is lit on fire and he dunks it into a toilet, not knowing that Kevin has replaced the water with kerosene. The resulting explosion ''destroys the entire first floor'', and yet Harry escapes with nothing more than a few minor burns and getting his hat ripped open.
* Dr. Watson in ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' (2009) should have died in the explosion that Holmes had to run away from to survive.

** Both cases are given explanations in supplemental material: in ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamSeedAstray'', Kira survived the Strike's destruction because Lowe had been watching the battle and pulled him free just barely in time. Kira wasn't in the cockpit when it got scorched. As for ''Destiny'': the Freedom's design is different from the standard (due to the inclusion of a nuclear reactor), and its cockpit is located higher in the chest than normal. Shinn stabbed the Freedom's abdomen, which is where the cockpit is usually located, but not where Freedom's cockpit was.
*** Kira also had the good sense to hit the emergency shut-down when the reactor was breached.

was. This does not how explain explain Athrun's survival, since the [[MechaMooks GOUF]] he was piloting had a perfectly standard cockpit location.[[note]]Out of universe, this is an artifact of how the digitally-animated ''SEED Destiny'' made extensive use of the ability to edit StockFootage and replace one mecha with another one while leaving everything else the same. The scene of Shinn stabbing below the Freedom Gundam's cockpit was thus edited into a scene of him using the exact same stabbing technique to impale Athrun's stolen GOUF, failing to account for the different cockpit location. In-universe, no explanation is given.[[/note]]
*** Kira also had the good sense to hit the emergency shut-down when the reactor was breached. And contrary to popular perception, a nuclear fission reactor might melt down in the event of a containment breach but it's physically incapable of exploding.

* The extremely near miss with a Tiger tank that should have killed Major Foley of the Royal Tank Regiment. When recovering the wreck of his tank, Foley measured a straight line between the entry hole of the 88mm round in the hull, and the hole left by its its penetration of the engine bulkhead. The shell should have gone straight through him, the tank commander standing in the middle of that direct line. But the only wound on Foley was a slight gash on his left leg, as if the 88mm round had swerved in flight to miss him. He writes about this in his autobiography, ''Literature/MailedFist''.

* In 'Literature/MailedFist'', Major Foley has a very close encounter with an 88mm round fired by a Tiger tank. After penetrating the front hull of his tank and killing the driver, it should have gone straight through Foley, the tank commander. Instead it passes just close enough to gash his leg, before impacting and exploding in the engine compartment.

* It was noted in KLK AU's, ''Room 002108'' [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/2636633/chapters/5885231]] that, due to septicemia, a then eight going on nine year old Ryuuko should have died of organ failure, with her poisoned blood circulating through her body. Apparently, she willed them not to.

* [[JokerImmunity Team Rocket]] from ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''. They fall into the gorge in the Butterfree episode, and survive every instance of "blasting off", and two falls which they themselves think will kill them (once in "Haunter Versus Kadabra", and once in the second movie). The one that takes the cake is in "Shell Shock", when James is hit by a boulder and falls into the gorge WITH THE BOULDER ON TOP OF HIM. (The antagonist of [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Disney's first animated film]] is killed this way) Yet he turns up unharmed Team Rocket's next scene.\\
\\
It's not just the trio. In the first movie, Mewtwo blows up Viridian City Gym, which Giovanni survives, while all the scientists who created him are killed when Mewtwo blows up their lab in a similar explosion. In ''Pokemon Live'', he also survives Mecha Mew2's selfdestruct. That could be because Giovanni escaped the explosion before it happened; In ''Black and White'', Giovanni is possessed by the Reveal Glass and only regains his sanity when Jessie, James, and Meowth save him from a life threatening explosion.

A staple of the [[InspectorOblivious bumbling investigator]]. Often found in conjunction with NotTheFallThatKillsYou. Compare NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow, in which a character survives a normally lethal situation by [[{{Determinator}} sheer force of will]]. An inverse of this would be a DeathSeeker who, through sheer luck, finds himself ''unable'' to die. Often followed by an ImOkay. If a character ''finally'' dies after surviving a string of normally lethal occurrences, that's a RasputinianDeath.
