* Magic isn't ''supposed'' to be able to save you from vacuum if you're ThrownOutOfTheAirlock, but Damien from Literature/StarshipsMage is no ordinary mage. When [[spoiler: he and Grace are cast into deep space by an explosion, he manages to create an impermeable shield to hold their breathable air, while Grace (also a mage) cycles carbon dioxide into oxygen.]]

** Played with in "Identity Crisis", where Bizarro is presumed to die saving Superman and Lois from an explosion. Luther warns Superman to clear out before activating the self-destruct, telling him the specifics of how violent the blast will be and claiming "not even you" can survive it. When Lois later wonders whether Bizarro is dead or not, Superman really has no idea; he's never experienced an explosion that violent, but if Luther was wrong, then Bizarro, being his clone, could have survived. (And as it turned out, he did.)

** 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.

* At one point played straight and then inverted in Literature/CiaphasCain: Hero of the Imperium, [[DesignatedHero Cain]] is forced to leave four of his squadmates for dead as he escapes a genestealer horde. A short time later he gets cornered by the genestealers, when who should show up to rescue him but two of the four people he had abandoned. Apparently, [[spoiler: they only got away because of Jurgen's rare power as a "psychic blank" screwing with the tyranid HiveMind]]. A few scenes after that, [[spoiler: they encounter the other two, who also said they had escaped the genestealers, although they only vaguely recalled how, and then Cain shoots them because he could tell that the stealers had implanted both of them.]]

* At the end of ''Film/{{Hulk}}'', General Ross calls up his daughter and says they both know there's no way that Bruce Banner could have survived a direct hit from a nuclear weapon, but if he did happen to contact her, would she tip him off? Betty says she wouldn't...but it's a moot point as she knows [[GenreSavvy her father's men have her under surveillance just in case.]]

* ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles II: The Secret of the Ooze'': Raphael mocks the idea of Shredder having survived his "half gainer right into the back of a garbage truck" at the climax of the first movie; Shredder not only survived the fall, but also being compacted. Subverted at the end: [[spoiler: Super Shredder wrecks a pier, bringing the whole structure down on himself and the Turtles. The Turtles see his hand emerge from the wreckage, and Raphael exclaims, "Nobody coulda survived that!" The hand then falls, indicating that Shredder has, in fact, died this time.]]

* [[spoiler:Tomoe]] from ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'' takes a thousand-or-more-feet drop from the sky (head first!) after her [[PhlebotinumBreakdown armor was shattered]] during her final fight against Arika. Just as the castle guards discover her and prepare to pronounce her DOA, she springs back up from the gurney and yells at one of them, and then walks away as if she had simply fallen out of a tree.
