** However, when said reliquary ''is'' broken this trope is played straight. Aside from the general screaming and writhing in agony, Rasputin is struck by a huge green fireball, then his skin dissolves and evaporates, then his still-living skeleton crumbles into a fine dust.

* While the ''Indominus rex'' in ''Film/JurassicWorld'' takes a a lot of pummeling throughout the course of the film (such as taking several point-blank head shots from a combat shotgun, and getting hit in the face by an ''Ankylosaurus'' tail club), in the last act she endures a truly absurd amount of punishment before she's killed. First she takes dozens of bullets from a barrage of assault rifles, shotguns, and machine guns, and tanks a shot from a rocket launcher before fleeing. In the final battle, she successively gets mauled by a pack of ''Velociraptor'' while being shot at by a semi-automatic rifle designed for large game, gets her throat ripped at by a ''Tyrannosaurus'', and then facing off against a ''Tyrannosaurus'' and ''Velociraptor'' tag-team fight, during which she has her face smashed into buildings and several pieces of metal rebar speared into her. What finally finishes her off is the ''Moasasaurus'' jumping out of her lagoon and dragging the ''I. rex'' to a watery grave.

* This is the premise of ''Film/{{Crank}}''. The entire movie's essentially his one-day Rasputinian Death, compressed into about an hour and a half. Even after falling from an airplane, he lives, making ''CrankHighVoltage'' possible. And then, he burns alive after recharging himself on a high voltage power line, gets his normal heart back inside him, which stops, and then starts again, ending the credits with him opening his eyes... ''again!''

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamOO'', there are two deaths in Season 1 that might qualify. The first is Lockon's death, the second it Alejandro's.
** Lockon first goes out in the GN-ARMS Type-D. When that is destroyed, he ejects the Gundam Dynames just before the explosion, losing the GN-Full Shield in the process. Then the Dynames gets severely damaged by Ali Al-Zaachez's Gundam Throne Zwei and its GN Fangs, leaving the Dynames without both arms, legs and head, and the pilot visibly injured (and his helmet cracked). He then takes the targeting system from Dynames, connects it to the remains of the GN-ARMS and fires, but at the same moment, Throne Zwei fires back, causing the cannon Lockon was standing on to explode, killing Lockon. According to WordOfGod, Lockon would have died even without being caught in the explosion.
** Alejandro's death is a more downtoned example. Up until that point GN-drive powered MS could be destroyed in a few direct hits from other GN-drive powered MS. Alejandro's Alvaroon is stabbed with 6 separate swords before the final blow. From a SEVENTH sword.

* Maximus Slade from ''Literature/{{TOT}}'' takes forever to kill, in large part due to his RegeneratingHealth. Even after the protagonists find [[AchillesHeel silver weapons]] to use against him, he survives getting stabbed multiple times in the chest, stomach, back, neck, and even his eye. In the final chapter, he accidentally swallows a bomb that ends up obliterating his chest and abdomen. And that ''still'' didn't kill him; Rachel had to hack off his head with a machete to put him down for good.

* Rudol von Stroheim in Part 2 of ''Anime/JojosBizarreAdventure'' managed to survive having his leg hacked off, being possessed by a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Pillar Man]], and [[HeroicSacrifice blowing himself up]] before being turned into a cyborg. Since then, he was cut in half, [[MakesSenseinContext impaled by a squirrel]], and jumped out of a plane (losing only his bionic legs) before somehow finally dying at the Battle of Stalingrad.

* The Anti-Monitor in ''Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''. Jiminy Christmas, but he was a doozy to take down, and then to make him ''stay'' down: First, he was assaulted by pretty much every last surviving hero from several universes (which did dick-all); the first one to get to him was Doctor Light, who hit him with the energy of a ''star'' after he had his power drained by Alex Luthor. Then, he was poisoned by Earth's wizards, who had magically altered his minions, the shadow demons, which he absorbed to replenish his power. Then, {{Superman}} hit him with a bunch of asteroids and a ''moon''. When he came back for more, frickin' ''{{ComicBook/Darkseid}}'' blasted him using Alex as a conduit, which caused the Anti-Monitor to fall into a star. When he flew out again as a ball of plasma, still screaming bloody murder, Superman finally shattered him into smithereens.

* ''Averted'' in Creator/DonBluth's ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'' by ''[[TropeNamer Rasputin]]''. They leave out nearly everything that was done to him. He just drowns after falling through the ice. Since he sold his soul for the power to kill Anya in the first place, he gets trapped in Limbo after the curse fails to kill her, which makes him a living corpse that is prone to falling apart, although undead and indestructible. But he dies if you break his [[SoulJar reliquery]], which is made of glass and is quite easily breakable.

* ''Series/WalkerTexasRanger'': The main villain in the episode "Warriors", from 1998 (the fifth season), the leader of a new-age supremacist group, has created a prototype muscle man who is not only unbeatable but can withstand everything without so much as flinching or feeling any pain. The group kidnaps a genetic researcher and forces her at gunpoint to share her secrets of "rapid healing" DNA (which she intends to use for good) to perfect his prototype. In the meantime, the man-mountain has beaten Walker and Trivette to pulps, [[NoSell No Selling]] being shot more than 10 times and Walker's powerful roundhouse kick. In their final fight, Walker is clearly losing against the muscle man, when the researcher shows up to finally throw flammable liquid and a flask in the warrior's face, finally allowing Walker an opening to kick the stunned warrior (who is enveloped in a ball of flame) into an oil field and to his doom. The bad guy's ultimate goal was to clone the prototype and create an army capable of overthrowing the world's governments and -- in ruling the world -- creating a reign of terror unmatched even by such real-life villains as Ghengis Khan and Adolf Hitler.

** Jack from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil7Biohazard'' is a great example. First meeting, you simply shoot and stab him while he cheerfully chimes about how uneffective it is and only goes down when he is set on fire by a car which then explodes. ''Seconds'' after that, he already gets back up, only to proceed to shoot himself in the head. With your gun. [[ForTheEvulz Because why not]]. Then he returns good as new to stalk you some more, only to duel with chainsaws. It takes three rounds of chainsaw straight to the face for his upper body to explode as his legs try to walk off. And he is ''still'' not dead as he returns as a massive mutated beast. Which has to be shot multiple times into it's eyes, then set on fire and shot some more (possible weapons for that range from a small handpistol to a ''rocket launcher''). The only thing that finally kills him for good is a serum that kills the infection that kept healing him.

** Your average raid boss would have to be hit with [[HellFire Fel flames]], [[HolyHandGrenade Righteous Judgement]], [[DeusExMachina any number of plot devices]], [[EvilisDeathlyCold Runic frost energy]], [[ThePlague enough disease to kill off an army]], [[RainOfArrows copious amounts of arrows]] [[MoreDakka and bullets]], [[MindRape have it's soul and mind shattered repeatedly]], [[SpamAttack and hammered a variety of]] [[{{BFS}} swords]] [[DropTheHammer hammers]] [[AnAxeToGrind axes]] [[KnifeNut daggers]] and more, ''[[NoKillLikeOverkill ''[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill every few seconds]]'' for upwards of 5 or more minutes before going down.
** In the Broken Shore cinematic, Varian Wrynn [[DyingMomentofAwesome faces down Gul'dan and an entire demonic army alone]]. It takes the demons at least five hits, including two [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impalements]], {{impale|dWithExtremePrejudice}}ments, to bring him to his knees, before Gul'dan finally finishes him off by blowing him up with Fel Magic. Given what happened to Vol'jin, it's also likely the weapons were poisoned.



* [[RecurringBoss Ridley]] gets this treatment in ''{{Metroid}} Prime''. After you finally get his health to zero (which requires dozens of super missiles or charged plasma beam shots, or a hundred or so regular missiles) he gets blasted in the chest by laser-shooting Chozo statues and falls over the edge of the Artefact Temple into a huge crater. He comes back in MetroidPrime 3, where he gets beaten by Samus again and falls into the bottom of a several-hundred-meter-deep pit. He gets better, though, and you have to fight him again later in the game.

* An old [[GoodBadBugs hilariously buggy]] release of ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' gave these to people. It could take twenty minutes for a squad of wrestlers to take down a giant rat, despite the LudicrousGibs and PunchedAcrossTheRoom mechanics. With the ability to target body parts, this has gone away; a vulnerable foe will quickly suffer a CoupDeGrace by [[OffWithHisHead decapitation]]. However, Bronze Colossi, and certain [[OurMonstersAreWeird Forgotten Beasts and Titans]] made of inorganic materials, are NighInvulnerable; the only way to destroy them is to either dismember them completely, hurl them downwards several stories, or [[KillItWithFire douse them in magma until they melts]]. And in a classic case of VideoGameCrueltyPotential, one can [[CruelAndUnusualDeath cause such deaths]] by hacking off limbs ''slowly''.

** Also, his [[spoiler: Maddy AI]] adds insult to injury by telling him she preferred [[spoiler: [[MakesSenseInContext the Jack program]].]]
* A gem in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is impossible to kill. ''Literally''. And even to reach the closest state of "death", someone has to pulverize the gem itself, usually after taking out the physical projection of their body first. Depending on whether or not the gem is a fighter and the type of gem, this can be more or less easy to brutally difficult. And chances are high that instead of pulverizing the gem, it only gets broken into little pieces. [[spoiler: Resulting in that gem becoming a sort of Frankenstein's Monster]].

** Bradley/Wrath got one, what with him still going strong after being on a train that exploded, getting run through, having an eye clawed out, getting shot, nearly drowning, nearly being set on fire and having his hands blasted off. He has now finally died of blood loss, but had enough time to give a dying speech first.
*** It should be noted that Wrath/Bradley is the only Homunculus without any healing powers, he's just that badass

** Punisher himself spends about the entire "Homeless" arc dying. Still wounded from the Bullseye fight fights Elektra, getting stabbed and beaten. Then he is ambushed at his former home by the Kingpin and gets despite getting shot about a dozen times he manages to kill the thugs and then fights the Kingpin, who flees into the city where Punisher follows him and executes him, then goes all the way back to his home and dies there. Keep in mind that he is also 65 years old and has been a vigilante for about 36 years, probably having been shot and wounded probably hundreds of times during that.

* Kano gets the treatment in ''Fanfic/InWithTheOldOutWithTheNew'' during his final confrontation with [[MamaBear Sonya]]. Shot in the ankle by Johnny, and gets the cap beaten out of him by Sonya, leading her to break his knee and shatter his ankle. Then, for payback for Kano kidnapping, torturing and raping Cassie, she shoots him in the groin, his shoulder and through the eye. Then she empties the clip in her pistol and pistol whips his corpse for good measure.
