** For example, the classic game ''VideoGame/{{Wizardry}}'' had 3 levels of dead. They are:
*** "Dead", which could possibly be cured with a simple "Raise Dead" spell.
*** "Ashes", which was the result of a botched resurrection. This person could still be brought back for more gold, but if ''that'' failed...
*** "Gone", where nothing other than hacking the game will bring them back.

* In the MMORPG for ''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.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clinical_death Clinical death]] means that the heart and circulatory system has stopped functioning. Up until the 20th Century, this was the official definition of death, and even today it ''usually'' means your ticket's been punched. However, if the [[CPRCleanPrettyReliable proper]] [[MagicalDefibrillator action]] is taken (ideally within ''seconds'' after death - the brain tends to die off almost immediately under these conditions), it's possible that [[BackFromTheDead the heart and circulation will restart]] - if the patient's ''really'' lucky, without permanent damage.

* In VideoGame/Left4Dead2, if one of your teammates dies they can be revived with a defibrillator regardless of how much time has passed since their "death." While many fans attribute this to a MagicalDefibrillator, others believe that the character is instead Only Mostly Dead.

* Most units in VideoGame/{{SWINE}} will merely lose their turret and the ability to move. This allows players the ability to recover "lost" units and bring them back into service with a repair trailer. There are a few exceptions to this, but all but one of those are non-combat units. It's fairly easy to go along with it, as all the units in the game are some sort of vehicle.

* On ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse,'' [[PosthumousCharacter Rose Quartz]] "[[AscendedToAHighPlaneOfExistence gave up her physical form]]" when the title character [[DeathByChildbirth was born]]. The characters NeverSayDie about her (though they do in other circumstances), and the general implication seems to be that she's somehow "alive" within Steven himself.
