* ''WheelOfTime'' has several levels of being dead. Most people die and their souls are eventually reincarnated sans memories. The [[BigBad Dark One]] can also resurrect followers of his who die normally. Big heroes are bound to the Pattern and between incarnations they inhabit the World of Dreams where they retain memories of their past lives. When they're reincarnated their new lives tend to be just as heroic as their past ones. Finally there's people who die via [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique balefire]], which kills you retroactively. Their souls can still be reincarnated according to WordOfGod but they can't be resurrected by the Dark One. However, as a consequence of killing you before it hits you, anyone who was killed by you after your adjusted time of death gets unkilled, with some funny memories of dying. About the only FinalDeath shown is dying while in the World of Dreams. Dying there removes you from the Pattern so you can't be reincarnated.

* In ''LonelyWerewolfGirl'' the souls of dead werewolves go to the Forest Of The Werewolf Dead, fortunately Fire-Demon Malvera is able to intercept heroine Kalix's soul while it's just in the outskirts and bring her back. All for the [[DealWithTheDevil bargain price]] of one human girl's ability to love.

* George R.R. Martin's ''{{A Song of Ice and Fire}}'' series has a few examples of this. Lord Berric Dondarrion [[spoiler: was brought back to life repeatedly by the Red Priest, although his regenerated form still had the wounds and scars from his death, most notably a huge hole in his chest left by a lance, and he gradually forgot more of his life with each subsequent revival.]] Catelyn Stark [[spoiler: was murdered along with her son Robb at the Red Wedding, then later reappears, restored to life by the same sort of magic as Dondarrion. In a subversion, Catelyn is visibly rotted as a result of being resurrected several days after her demise.]]

* In the MMORPG for ''Website/GaiaOnline'', if a player loses all health they they are "dazed", which leaves them unable to attack, open chests or crates, move to another screen, or really do anything besides use the chatbox or wander around drunkenly. The player can be saved from this state by clicking the "awaken" button which whisks you to a place called the Null Chamber (thanks to the mysterious attack rings), using a potion, or having another player use a reviving ring on them.

* In ''Webcomic/KillSixBillionDemons'', the first Demiurge Zoss massacred most of the Prime Angels after breaching Heaven, [[http://killsixbilliondemons.com/comic/wielder-of-names-1-20/ leaving one]] barely alive to torture for information about the Gods. Since this left it trapped on the verge of death in a broken body for millennia rather than trigger its ResurrectiveImmortality, it's gone a bit wrong in the head.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'':
** Since healing magic is an important (albeit rare) part of the setting, this is examined in depth. It's pointed out that most lethal injuries don't actually instantly kill, no matter how terrible they are; you have at least a few minutes until the brain dies. Until that happens, the Surge of Regrowth can be used to heal the person, apparently bringing them back from the dead. Once brain death occurs, however, death is permanent. Unfortunately, the setting also has Shardblades, which [[SoulCuttingBlade ignore living flesh and cut straight through the soul]]. If you are killed with one of those, you can still be revived if someone moves fast enough--but the window of opportunity is seconds, not minutes.
** Surgebinders holding Stormlight gain a powerful HealingFactor. As long as they have at least a tiny amount of Stormlight in them, it is impossible for them to die, no matter how terrible the wound. One character uses this to fake her death after getting her throat slit and then stabbed through the heart. Of course, healing also consumes the Stormlight, so it is possible for a Surgebinder to run out of Stormlight before they finish healing and die of the remaining wounds.

** HackMaster builds upon the [=AD&D=] second edition rules, and imposes the limit that a character's starting Constitution score represents the number of times they can be resurrected; this total can never be raised short of the personal intervention of an actual Gawd.
