* In ''RiseOfLegends'' Carlini dies in a cutscene near the beginning of third campaign by the god of Death himself, meaning he can't come back at all. Normally it just takes some resources and time to revive a fallen hero. Moreover in this mission you get to control a hero that has ability to resurrect friendly units.

* [[NotASubversion Lampshaded]] in the RPG ''VideoGame/DungeonSiege'': You are given a mission to find an elder. When you arrive there, a cutscene plays where he is killed. When you return to town to report the elder's death, they ask you why didn't you just use one of your potions of revival to bring the elder back to life.

* Subverted in ''AncientDomainsOfMystery'', giving the AlmostDeadGuy an amulet of life saving instead of talking to him actually revives him. This is required for the GoldenEnding.

* ''ValkyrieProfile'': Damn near everybody. But in a sort of inversion, since you're playing as a Valkyrie, that's how everyone ''joins'' your party.

* In the ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' series, the player's party members die and get resurrected all the time... with two notable exceptions. In ''VideoGame/UltimaV'', a character slain by evil king Blackthorne's pendulum is permanently dead. And in ''VideoGame/UltimaVIIPartII'', a sacrifice is required for the Balance Serpent, for which one of your party members volunteers who will then be gone forever. Until the much-maligned ''VideoGame/UltimaIX''. *sigh*

* So when the king is killed in the very ''beginning'' of ''ShiningForce'', ''why exactly can the local priest not revive him?'' Even worse, since he didn't die right away, why can't you just HEAL HIM?

* In an interesting example, ''PhantasyStarII'' uses ''cloning'' as the preferred "revival" method of fallen characters - why a plot-killed character can't be cloned is vaguely explained in the US version by stating she can't be cloned because she's not human, even though cloning prior to this point works on her; a line in the original JP version states that the data required to revive her has gone missing; after the destruction of Climatrol and the death of [[MonsterLord Neifirst]], the technology used to create [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke biomonsters]] [[NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup is no longer available on Motavia]]. The Japan-only [=PS2=] remake adds an optional side-quest to fix this.

** Also in ''PhantasyStarIV'', Alys is struck by an attack that's used repeatedly in the battle proper, but when it hits her in the plot, the effects are lethal. This is certainly an example of GameplayAndStorySegregation, however the 'lethal' result is interesting in that Alys doesn't die immediately - she becomes sick, and dies slowly over the next few (in-story) days/weeks - an attack that in most [=RPGs=] would either kill you or not, actually killed because of side-effects such as infections that most games would just ignore. This attack also seems to suppress healing abilities; the party healer attempts to heal her in the cutscene that follows, only to fail. This actually ends up being a bit of foreshadowing for the second act: [[spoiler: The Black Wave's primary effect on Algo's people ''is' that disease. It can't be cured with magic and will raise corpses as zombies if they're continually exposed after death, with only the most powerful spiritualists actually making a full recovery on their own. The citizens of Mile don't even live long enough to make it ''indoors''. Having taken a Black Wave attack directly in the chest with no protection against it, Alys was only its first victim.]]
