* In the apocryphal [[Literature/BooksOfMaccabees book of 2nd Maccabees]], Razis, when he was surrounded by Nicanor's forces, tries to kill himself by falling on his own sword, then failing to die that way, he climbs to the top of the tower and jumps to the ground, hoping to kill himself that way. Still failing to die, he runs to the top of a steep rock, tearing out his insides and throwing them down to the people while praying to the Lord before finally dying.

* In the "Operation: Rimfire" ''TabletopGame/{{Mekton}}'' adventure, [[TheDragon Lord Dremmond's]] death scene description is, and I quote: ''"Tough as nails, he gets one dying speech"'' (followed by a '''twenty-seven''' lines such speech) ''before any PC can finish him off''. That would be not a RasputinianDeath but a vanilla FinalSpeech, were not his death in the middle of a frantic close-quarters battle with the whole Rimfire flight crew gang-banging him with all sort of weapons, including lightsabers, in an alien spaceship full of monsters about to be psychically awakened by him -- which really gives the [=PCs=] no reason at all to cease fire until well after he is DeaderThanDead. Which every group of players, routinely, does. After that, he detonates a hard-radiation nuke. And [[BrainUploading survives]]. It should be noted that Dremmond's death scene [[{{Narm}} often becomes]] quite [[CrowningMomentOfFunny the opposite of what was intended]].

* In ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'', specifically ''Mechwarrior: Dark Age'', Victor Steiner-Davion faces down the Clans and wins, fights a brutal civil war against his sister and claims victory while personally leading the charge, survives the Jihad, becomes a Paladin of the Sphere, and is finally snuffed by no less than ''four'' assassins in the dead of night. At the ripe old age of 107, he takes two with him.

* Almost any video game that involves hit points. Whereas most people would DIE from a FATAL WOUND, you don't lose the game until the final fatal wound drags your HP to 0 or lower. Sometimes NOT EVEN THEN. Averted in situations where your character is a one hit point wonder, falls into a pit and/or spikes, or gets a nonstandard game over (like a nuke to the face).

* {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} in ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis''. First Franchise/{{Batman}} shoots him with a god-killing weapon. Then [[TheFlash Barry Allen and Wally West]] trick him into hitting himself with The Omega Beam. Then [[TheGrimReaper Black Racer]] destroys his body, Franchise/WonderWoman binds his essence, and it still takes Superman shouting the musical equivalent of the Multiverse and the Miracle Machine to take down what's left of him. And all of this was ''after'' he was mortally wounded by his son Orion, which is [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum what made all this necessary in the first place.]]

* All the Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger Franchise/{{Terminator}}s (T-800\T-850) are robots that take forever to stop. The [[Film/TheTerminator first]] is burned to a crisp, [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe bisected]], but only dies crushed. The [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay second]] loses its arm and temporarily dies impaled, but manages to return [[ICannotSelfTerminate and ask someone to destroy him]]. The [[Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines third]] is almost decapitated, burned as he does a DynamicEntry with a helicopter, and then blown in a [[TakingYouWithMe self-caused explosion]]. The [[Film/TerminatorSalvation fourth]] is burned, frozen, and only ends a long fight once decapitated.

A close one in the [[Film/TerminatorGenisys fifth]] movie: Guardian was partially showered with acid, impaled through the shoulder, fell from a flying helicopter into another flying helicopter, had its arm ripped off and finally had its exposed metal parts affected by the devastating time displacement field and its explosion. It got deactivated [[spoiler:(technically fulfilling the trope) but unprogrammed polymimetic alloy reactivated its systems and repaired all damage.]]

** In ''That Yellow Bastard'', Junior Roarke is stabbed, gets his balls ripped off, and is beaten to the point where his head turns to mush. He was probably going to die from the stabbing alone but John Hartigan '''really''' [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge didn't like the guy.]]

* Luca Blight from ''VideoGame/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!

The medical scans shown during the montage of the resurrection process and Miranda's own labnotes reveal that that Shepard's body endured exposure to vacuum, the heat of reentry (likely mitigated due to their hardsuit's shields), exposure to subzero temperatures on the planet surface, as well as an impact that left most of Shep's skeleton shattered. It's no wonder it took them two years and a ludicrous amount of money to [[WeCanRebuildHim get Shepard back in working order]].
