* ''WhateleyUniverse'' has several people who can pull this off. Tennyo and Jade, on Team Kimba's side, along with werewolves; Great Old Ones; other regenerators...there are a lot of people that you need to be really sure stay dead, if you think you've killed them. Tennyo periodically has chunks of her body blown off, and Jade's technically died [[spoiler:several times. In the same day.]]

* ''AceLightning'': Chuck Mugel is hit by Ace's lightning bolt attack ''twice''. The first time (a "deflected shot") it ''gave him'' temporary superpowers. The second time just knocked him out for a few minutes, though granted, it freaked the main characters out a bit anyway.

* In ''TransformersArmada'', Smokescreen takes an almost point-blank hit from the Requiem Blaster that blasts a hole clear through his abdomen. He still manages to stagger upright as molten metal drips down his torso and stagger towards Megatron for another attack, and winds up surviving after having his body rebuilt. While they ''are'' robots, other Transformers in the series have died from lesser wounds. Laws of Fatality are not consistent in Transformers. Same person can be unharmed by some attack at one point and next dying after being hit by same attack.

* Vita of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' was stabbed back to front, but still continued to fight in the final battle despite a gaping chest wound. Nanoha also gets badly injured. In both case they continue in large part because of their {{Determinator}} natures.

* Negi of the ''MahouSenseiNegima'' manga puts up an admirable fight despite being ''impaled in the chest'' by a thick piece of stone, pulling out and gripping the stone in one hand and [[Awesome/MahouSenseiNegima sucker-punching his opponent with it]]. You do ''not'' [[BadassTeacher mess with his students]]. In a later incident, an enemy cuts off Negi's right arm. Negi's response? "I still have my left!"
** Slightly subverted for Negi. [[spoiler:As it's later revealed that his use of Magica Erebea has turned him into a vampire - like his master Evangeline. She did say her path had its price...]]

* Pretty much everyone on [[http://www.cracked.com/article_16497_7-people-who-cheated-death-then-kicked-it-in-balls.html this list]] but especially Alexis Goggins, who took six bullets (apparently including a couple to the head) and survived, which would be pretty impressive for a trained Marine, but crosses into I Am Not Making This Up territory when you find out she was a six-year-old girl.

* In ''VideoGame/MarvelContestOfChampions'' ComicBook/ThePunisher has an ability called Defy Pain that allows him to endure what would otherwise be a lethal hit for several seconds, with the exact length of this and chances of it succeeding depending on his level.

** Though even if a boar would be instantly killed, 150 kg of pure muscle crashing into a human body at 50 km/h can still easily be fatal.

* Edgar Freemantle and Wiseman in Creator/StephenKing's ''Literature/DumaKey'' both fit the example, and this condition is what opens them up to the key's... let's say environmental hazards.

* In the first issue of TheQuestion solo series by Dennis O'Neil and Denys Cowan, Charlie loses a [[CurbStompBattle fight]] with [[TheDreaded Lady Shiva]], gets beaten by thugs with pipes until more than half his bones are broken, gets shot in the head at close range with an air gun and dumped in Hub City Bay. It's all loosely justified: The airgun fired a low-power round that only fractured his skull, the broken bones took 6 months to heal and he survived in the bay for 10 minutes due to the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mammalian_diving_reflex diving reflex]].

* In ''ScudTheDisposableAssassin'', the titular robot was shot with a laser beam through the torso. He then kept talking about how much it hurt in spite of his being a robot, implying that the wound was rather severe, then drove a semi truck off of a ''twelve-mile-high cliff'' - and he and the truck ''survived''. In fact, he drove the truck ''several miles'' through the desert after hitting the ground. Given that the main premise of the comics is that he's avoiding self-destruction (his model self-destructs after killing its intended target, so he instead incapacitates it and puts it in stasis, becoming a hit man to pay its hospital bills), it's strange such a thing would even be possible.
