** Elves do not sleep (in fact they ''cannot'' sleep - spells that magically put creatures to sleep do not work on them) and suffer no ill effects for it. However they are stated to need roughly 4 hours of trance-like meditation every day.

Because of this, the Crystal Gems have to bubble their gems to keep them in suspended animation when they 'poof' them.

* ''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.

* 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.]]
