* [[Characters/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Drax the Destroyer]]'s origin is that he was resurrected after he and his family were murdered by {{Main/Thanos}} and tasked with killing the Mad Titan back. (Of course, Thanos oscillates between 5 and 7 on the SuperWeight scale regularly and is frequently [[CompleteImmortality completely immortal]]. Drax's main power is that he's a StoneWall who refuses to stop ''trying'' to kill Thanos. The idea was that he'd have to succeed eventually. Even InUniverse, this logic has been called into question.)

* [[PlayingWithATrope Played With]] in the case of the fourth game of ''Franchise/FatalFrame'': [[spoiler: Choushiro Kirishima is DeadAllAlong but the spirit of Sayaka contacts him to aid Ruka when she returns to the island. He's still dead, but it breaks the loop his spirit was trapped in, and later he can join the others in heading to the afterlife.]]

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' novel ''Literature/GhostStory'' plays with this trope. The person in question would have died (having been shot through the heart). However, the person is kept from death due to a DealWithTheDevil made in an earlier novel, solely to perform the job agreed to in the deal. Also, the other party was GenreSavvy enough to know the person would try to back out of the deal.

* [[HeroicMime Nanashi]] is killed by demons ten minutes into ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'', and the god Dagda offers to resurrect him in exchange for his servitude. Dagda is generally hands-off except at a few critical points, so his goal of [[spoiler:recreating the universe and killing everyone in it in the process]] remains a secret.

* In Michael Moorcock's Eternal Champion series, the protagonist is a hero who is magically resurrected, as different people, on different worlds to wage war. He is VERY good at it.
* In ''TheHeroesOfOlympus'', the Doors Of Death have opened, meaning that no one stays dead for long. While this can be good (as when Gwen gets speared during a combat exercise) it also means that Gaea can resurrect deadly monsters and giants to help her defeat the Olympians.

->''"So the main plot is that there's this evil cult that's kidnapping everybody on the island, including the king's daughter. Just another day in Fantasy Land. So since you're a historical badass, they've resurrected you to go and get her back, and to lay the hurt down on anyone that gets in your way."''
