* ''Series/{{Supergirl}}'': Many of the non-superpowered characters, especially Kara's sister Alex, get regularly grabbed, punched or thrown around by villains that have demonstrated enough strength to go one-on-one with supergirl. Inevitably they are either rescued while the villain pointless gloats or somehow survive with, at most, a broken bone (rapidly healed by next episode of course), whereas they should, by all rights, have ended up as a smear on the wall.

* In ''Videogame/GodOfWarPS4'', the sons of Thor Magni and Modi believe they have this because the prophecies surrounding Ragnarok claim they will survive it. [[spoiler:When Kratos kills Magni anyway at the end of their boss battle, Modi is horrified and can scarcely believe it. Modi meets his end later as well.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Sigmund from the Cave Goblin questline in ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' repeatedly avoids death by using the in-game Ring of Life that teleports the person wearing it to safety if they reach 10% HP or less. He is, however, immune to killing blows and will always have at least one point left when it activates, [[spoiler:even when his hand is cut off before it can teleport him to safety. With no method to escape this time, he loses his plot armour and finally dies.]]

Added DiffLines:

* This is a major plot element that applies to everyone in the world of ''Anime/SteinsGate''. If the Attractor Field dictates that you will die in 2025, you will not die under any circumstances before that day & time comes.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', this trope mixed with every other side holding the IdiotBall in a death-grip is practically the only way you could explain the Victorian militias crushing every other army they go up against. Wooden ships with spar torpedoes can apparently easily destroy modern warships, World War II-era short-wave radar is good at catching F-35 stealth fighters, and outdated T-34s are technically better than M1 Abrams for being easier to repair and more reliable (though at least the author tries to justifies this by pointing out that they should avoid pitched battles with modern armour, it doesn't excuse how modern hand-portable anti-tank weapons would shred a T-34 without any trouble).

** It is possible for all of Normandy's crew and Shepard's squad to die during the SuicideMission, including Shepard him/herself. The only character who is guaranteed to survive no matter what is [[spoiler: Joker]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}'', if an ally unit is defeated during a army battle, there is a chance that they will be gone for good, preventing you from getting the GoldenEnding. Plot-relevant characters are immune to this and will just retreat.
** Also happens in the StrategyRPG GaidenGame, ''VideoGame/SuikodenTactics''.

* ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} III'' hero units took less damage from most forms of attack. Even though they could be slain non-plot, they could be [[BackFromTheDead revived at special Altars]]. Certain characters had "Divine" armor that reduced all non-Chaos attacks to one point of damage.

Certain characters plot-important enemies during the campaign had "Divine" armor that reduced all non-Chaos attacks could only be damaged by units doing Chaos-type damage, which are almost impossible to one point of damage.obtain. Therefore, characters with Divine Armor aren't meant to be slain in conventional combat and can only be defeated by completing the mission as the developers intended.
