* One of the possible "allies" in ''[[VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment Planescape:Torment]]'' has survived centuries and the complete physical degradation, that is, to dust, of his body, driven solely by his desire to bring the main character to justice.

* One of the possible "allies" in Vhailor from ''[[VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment Planescape:Torment]]'' has survived centuries and the complete physical degradation, that is, to dust, of his body, is driven solely by to enforce justice amongst the planes. The fact that he's long dead (his body has long since turned to dust) will not stop him from fulfilling his desire duty. If you point out to bring him that he's dead, Vhailor will point out that this doesn't matter: Evil exists, and evil must be punished. [[spoiler:With very high Charisma and Intelligence you can point out to Vhailor that the main character number of already dead lawbreakers outnumber the currently living ones, [[PuffOfLogic causing him to justice.pass on in hot pursuit of them]].]]

** During a worst-ending run, [[spoiler: Undyne]] exhibits this to a degree when you first try to kill them. Their determination towards stopping ''you'' enables them to shake off death for a HeroicSecondWind, leading up to [[ThatOneBoss one of the hardest boss fights in the entire game.]] [[spoiler: Too bad that if you defeat her, the second death actually sticks...]]
** And if you're going for the GoldenEnding, [[spoiler: the True Lab is full of [[BodyHorror failed experiments]] who ''cannot die'' due to being injected with [[AppliedPhlebotinum Determination]], which makes them immortal simply by giving them the resolve to live, no matter what.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', this is what puts the "justified" in JustifiedSavePoint. If you [[spoiler:kill Toriel in the Ruins, and then reload to spare her]], Flowey will reveal that [[spoiler:he used to have that power himself, until you fell into the ruins -- apparently there's a limit of one person with this power per closed system, and you're more qualified than he is]]. He elaborates on that toward the end of a worst-ending run, and [[spoiler:''steals it back from you'']] at the end of a neutral-ending run. And in a good-ending run, [[spoiler:you get a souped-up version as an EleventhHourSuperpower for the TrueFinalBoss fight]].
