* During the first story arc of Creator/GrantMorrison's JLA: the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Villains of the month]] have shot down Batman's plane. They don't even bother to check the wreckage, since "[[UnderestimatingBadassery He doesn't have any]] [[BadassNormal powers."]] Somewhat justified in that [[spoiler: they turn out to be martians, who would be vulnerable to the fire coming off the crashed plane.]]

* Wim van Est, cyclist in the 1951 TourDeFrance. He'd gained the yellow jersey in the previous stage and was racing to defend it, but in doing so he lost control of his bike and fell down a 70-meter ravine. He survived the fall with only minor injuries, [[NotTheFallThatKillsYou thanks to some trees breaking his fall]]. He actually [[{{Determinator}} got back to the racecourse and finished the stage]], but abandoned the Tour shortly thereafter at the behest of his team. He would race in later Tours.

* Subverted in ''Webcomic/AmandaGreenSuperhumanInsuranceAgent'': Adonis' SecretIdentity was "killed" in a highly visible and very spectacular incident. He cannot reveal his survival without giving away his superpowers. Now he's stuck being Adonis ("Donnie" to his friends) full-time and feeling a bit alienated because it makes it hard to associate with regular people.



** In "The Late Mr. Kent", Clark Kent uncovers evidence that [[ClearMyName exonerates a convicted murderer]], leading the real killer to plant a bomb in his car. He's not hurt, of course, but he has to let people belive that Clark is dead until he can explain his survival without revealing his SecretIdentity.

* ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): Lampshaded late in the book, when a side character worries about Shallan walking too close to an unguarded ledge. [[spoiler:Shallan reminds him that, due to being a Radiant, she would likely survive without a scratch.]]
