* At the climax of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', [[spoiler:Father actually ''succeeds'' in his goal and absorbs the souls of ''everyone'' in Amestris not currently in his sanctum]]. However, [[spoiler:Hohenheim reveals that he [[BatmanGambit had prepared a reverse transmutation circle using the moon's shadow from the eclipse]], [[CrazyPrepared and dots made of his own]] [[HiveMind Philosopher's Stone souls]] so that even if Father had the souls, the ''minds'' were still functioning as a link to their ''bodies'', and ensured the souls would be pulled back to their owners, meaning that the seemingly dead inhabitants (which were technically still saveable even in that situation, provided rapid action was taken), and returned to life when the aforementioned failsafe activated itself automatically.]]

* ''Literature/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.

* Referenced in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary''. Any injury other than damage to the brain is repairable, so the characters can be (and have been) reduced to just a head in a nannybag at one point or another, before having your body rebuilt. This is apparently referred to in the UNS military (although not among the mercenaries) as being "mostly dead."
** Later advances in technology lead to there being five levels of "dead", Laz-1 to Laz-5, explained here: http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2015-04-26 Laz-1 is 20th Century dead - cessation of brain-stem activity. Laz-2 is Laz-1 plus damage to brain-tissue. Laz-3 is total loss of brain, but distributed nanite-backups are intact. Laz-4 is Laz-3 with significant damage to the backups. Laz-5 is complete loss of identity and memory beyond retrieval by technology so far.

*** "Gone", results from a failed raise, death from disintegration or dragon breath, or having the party flee from battle when the character is laying unconscious, bleeding, or dead on the field. Works like ''Wizardry'''s Gone.

The step in between NonLethalKO and FinalDeath. It took {{Jesus}} three days to come BackFromTheDead, but for your party members all it takes is for you to fork over the cash. The procedure is relatively common in in-game mechanics, but possibly restricted to the wealthy.

** [[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.
