Their Philosopher's Stone powers enable them to survive being killed repeatedly.repeatedly, but they have a finite number of "lives" [[spoiler:based on the number of souls trapped in their Stone]], so a sufficient number of brutal fatalities can take them down for good.

* In ''YggdraUnion'', at the end of chapter 8: You fight Gulcasa and injure him severely. Luciana or Aegina, whoever is still alive, comes running out to cover him. When she goes down, Gulcasa awakens Brongaa and you beat him down again. He still refuses to die quite yet, and heads stubbornly for the altar where he's supposed to complete the Ritual of Soul Unbinding, where you have to pound him to death's door A THIRD TIME (the characters hang amazed lampshades on Gulcasa's sheer determination here) before he finally actually dies. The man is a true {{Determinator}}.

* The legend of [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19513_the-6-most-poorly-thought-out-attempts-at-insurance-fraud_p2.html "Iron Mike" Malloy]] a.k.a. "Mike the Durable"; an alcoholic, homeless, Irish immigrant in New York during the early 1930s who became the target of a life insurance fraud scheme by five guys the papers would later dub "The Murder Trust". The five men, all of whom frequented a local pub and were acquainted with Malloy, took out three life insurance policies on him that would garner them roughly 35 grand (over $600,000 today).\\\
First they tried giving him an open tab thinking he'll simply drink himself to death;... he didn't. Then they spiked his drinks with anti-freeze... he passed out, but woke up and came back for more. Then they gave him ''turpentine and rat poison''... Malloy somehow still lived. They then tried feeding him raw oysters, spoiled sardines, sandwiches with carpet tacks and still nothing worked. It got to a point where they tried running him over (which hospitalized him for weeks) and even freezing him in the snow after he passed out from drinking. Malloy survived all that... gladly stopping by the pub weeks later still unaware of the plot against him.\\\
Sadly, what finally did Mike in was coal gassing his lungs after, again, passing out from drinking. However, the bastards involved [[LaserGuidedKarma were soon implicated and convicted]] [[BittersweetEnding with one of them given life imprisonment]] while the other four got [[HighVoltageDeath The Chair at Sing Sing]].
* Certain microrganisms pose a quandary when launching lander probes, as they can be extremely hard to kill, even with proper sterilization techniques, presenting a risk of contamination to other planets. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacillus_safensis Bacillus Safensis]], for instance, has been detected in highly protected cleanrooms and documented as resistant to hard vacuum exposure, gamma radiation, uv radiation, and salt-based antimicrobial agents. The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tardigrade Tardigrade]], or water bear, takes this to the LogicalExtreme by being one of the most NighInvulnerable organisms known. They are capable of surviving at temperatures from absolute zero to 151 °C (304 °F)[[note]] Pure Tin melts at 231°C/449°F, for comparison.[[/note]], exposure to concentrated toxins, pressures several times greater than those at the bottom of the Marianas Trench, hard vacuum, direct prolonged exposure to absurd levels of radiation, dehydration, and lack of food. It is presumed that even if we were to experience an EarthShatteringKaboom, sooner or later water bears would rain down on mars and the moons of the gas giants along with the shrapnel.
* Commonly used in Criminal Law examinations so that law students can parse the various rules regarding murder vs. accidental death. Usually includes a question regarding whether it is possible to be charged with murder for killing someone who is already dead (the answer to which is no, but you ''can'' be charged with ''attempted'' murder in such a situation).

* Parodied in a sketch in British Comedy show ''TheTwoRonnies''. The sketch is a court room gameshow in which the defendant is accused of murder.

* Luca Blight from ''SuikodenII''. Took ''two'' armies; yours and his own conspiring against him; then riddled with arrows (killing his horse), fought three times (by three different combat parties), riddled with arrows, riddled with arrows again, and then fought in a duel. Only then does he die. He is probably the most shining example of #1. HIs last words, are bragging how many people it took to kill him...and that he STILL killed more!

* Pukin in ''LightNovel/MagicalGirlRaisingProject Limited'' brainwashes herself with her own magic rapier to keep fighting as long as her will is strong, making her nearly impossible to stop. She's stabbed by Kuru-Kuru Hime's ribbons, has a [[EyeScream smoke grenade detonate in her eye]], is beaten by Mana on magical steroids, is [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe cut in half by an anti-magic barrier]], and only finally dies when [[ElementalShapeshifter Tepsekemei]] solidifies herself in Pukin's head, causing it to explode.
