* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': The Dark Judges are undead foes of Judge Dredd who have ruled their dimension for centuries as living dead. It's unlikely that their bodies even ''can'' decay on their own, as they are really being fuelled by their spirits' psychic power.

See also YouCantKillWhatsAlreadyDead, where the undead just shrug off any injury for similar reasons as this trope.

* Part V of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' has the Stand "Notorious B.I.G.". It decomposes anything it touches, moves incredibly fast, and since it emerges when its user is dead, literally cannot die. [[spoiler: Its weakness is that it can't see, so it has to use motion detection to go towards the fastest-moving object within range. Bruno's gang "defeats" it by dropping it in the ocean, so it uselessly attacks waves for the rest of eternity.]]
** Part II also has [[spoiler: [[BigBad Kars]] himself. Once he evolves into Ultimate Kars, there is simply no way for him to die. The only way Joseph could get rid of him was to shoot him out of orbit.]]

* The [[Film/TheTerminator original]] ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' movie made the eponymous cyborg sound like this trope, until the [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay second film]] subverted it by revealing that his power cell would eventually run out....after 120 years.

* In ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', there's the Watcher in the Water, a massive squid-like beast living in the pool of water just outside Moria. It had been driven from the deeps of Moria into the flooded valley as a guardian and to trap the dwarves inside Moria. A creature that big just hanging around in caves needs to have SOME of this going on though.
