* Assuming you remembered to activate them beforehand, the "Quantum Bio-Reconstruction Devices" in ''SystemShock2'' would resurrect the player if he died anywhere within the level they were located on. Not found in the climactic final level, of course. ** The original SystemShock had something similar in the form of automatic healing devices that are converted to cyborg conversion chambers. By deactivating the cyborg process, the healing process is reactivated without the enemies knowing. So when you die, you just wake up in the healing chamber with no one the wiser. Of course, some of them were easy to find but extremely difficult to activate, and at least six of the games thirteen levels don't have healing devices at all.

* In ''Doctor Who'' episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E12HellBent "Hell Bent"]], [[spoiler: Clara is extracted from her timeline in between her next-to-last and last heartbeat, and kept suspended in that moment while still being able to walk and talk and act pretty normally.]] So, she's right on the edge of dead, but not ''quite'' there.

->'''Miracle Max:''' It just so happens that your friend here is [[TropeNamer only]] ''[[TropeNamer mostly]]'' [[TropeNamer dead]]. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Please open his mouth. Now, mostly dead is slightly ''alive''. Now, all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing that you can do.

* Comicbook/BlackPanther was once killed during a battle with Erik Killmonger. Though his friends were able to (just barely) resuscitate his body, it took Comicbook/MoonKnight venturing into the afterlife to actually bring his spirit back to the realm of the living.

Ultraman
Added DiffLines:
* In the various ''Franchise/UltraSeries''', a common rule among the titular and rotating Ultra Heroes is that they have only 3 Minutes to survive on Earth's atmosphere. [[PlayedForDrama When the plot calls for it however]], this can change in more climactic ways than expected... ** This has happened on at least 2 different occasions in ''Series/UltramanMebius'': *** The first time was when Mebius and [[Series/UltramanTaro Taro]] were battling against Imperializer, when Mebius takes a powerful blast from the robot [[HeroicSacrifice while protecting GUYS from its assault]]. Mebius's Color Timer goes out and Mebius seemingly dies then and there. He gets better however [[spoiler:[[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve after the members of GUYS cheer him on and remind him of the promises he made to them as a human]] ([[TheUnmasking Mebius, as Mirai also had revealed his secret identity to them shortly into his fight with the robot]],)]] and with it, Mebius also gets a new power-up that helps him win the day. *** The second time (and most legit of the examples) was when Mebius was KilledOffForReal by [[GreaterScopeVillain Alien Emperor]], [[DespairEventHorizon while GUYS laments that they cannot beat the Emperor without Mebius's help]], now it's the Ultras of the Past reminding them at it was because of their faith in Mebius that kept him going and with them renewing it, Mirai returns to them, now as an entity stored away in Ultraman Hikari's Knight Brace, ([[ChekhovsGun which was given to him by Ultraman King]].) Like before though, with their faith and Mirai/Mebius's faith is renewed, it allows the Ultra to come back to life with an even stronger form than before.

* During part of the Buu arc of {{Dragonball}}, Gohan is thought to be dead. As the narrator mentions however, he's at Death's door instead of fully dead (and he got better eventually).

* ''TheSims2'' University expansion pack introduced the Resurrect-O-Nomitron, which is unlocked when a Sim completes a certain career path and allows them to summon TheGrimReaper and attempt to buy back any Sim (or pet!) whose tombstone is still in the neighborhood. If the tombstone's been sold or destroyed, though, they're gone for good - and if [[FanNickname Grimmie]] doesn't like what you're offering in return, [[CameBackWrong you may not like what you get back]].

* In ''UltimaIII'', if someone was so gone that they have since then {{reincarnat|ion}}ed, there is still a spell that brings them back anyways. Presumably, the baby they had become drops dead. There is a cost of the wisdom stat to the caster, though.
