* ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsOnline'': The player characters have had their souls ripped from their bodies, but the ritual meant to process their souls had a major side-effect: with their souls mostly disconnected from their bodies, they can come back to life indefinitely.

The series' [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dragons]] are [[DragonsAreDivine divine]], [[TheAgeless ageless]] beings with this sort of immortality. While anyone of sufficient ability can slay the physical form of a dragon, that dragon can be resurrected later by another dragon. The only way to permanently kill a dragon is for another dragon (or [[TheChosenOne Dragonborn]]) to [[YourSoulIsMine absorb its soul]]. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', [[BigBad Alduin]] is bringing slain dragons [[RiseFromYourGrave back to life]] to serve him once again.

* Dr. Henry Morgan of ''Series/{{Forever}}'' can be injured like anyone else, but if killed his body will disappear and he will wake up in the nearest body of water completely healed. He is also TheAgeless and has been around for at least 200 years. His EvilCounterpart "Adam" has been alive for over 2000 years and has grown to no longer care about the lives of everyone else, killing without remorse. The one exception to this is anyone who has survived the [[WorldWarTwo German camps]], since "Adam" himself was being experimented on by [[MadScientist Dr. Mengele]], who was trying to learn the secret of this trope. Due to the series' cancellation, we'll never know what caused Henry and "Adam" to become immortal, although it's implied to have been HeroicSacrifice for Henry.

* Those cursed by the thorns in ''VideoGame/ARoseInTheTwilight'', like the main character Rose, cannot die. No matter how gruesome their death is, they will simply reappear in another area as if nothing happened. In fact, part of the game requires Rose to be placed in death traps to advance.

* In ''Webcomic/UndyingHappiness'', Keisuke and his family members have a HealingFactor so strong they can recover from otherwise-fatal injuries. The first chapter alone has Keisuke slowly regenerating from ''[[StrippedToTheBone nothing but his skeleton]]'' in the space of a couple hours.

** We now have an explanation as to why at least the ''Soldier'' can't die - [[http://www.teamfortress.com/doommates/#f=17 he ate an entire bottle of magical "Kill Me, Come Back Stronger" pills]] owned by his (former) [[AWizardDidIt magician]] [[MonsterRoommate roommate.]] Apparently this is enough for Merasmus to not even ''try'' killing him (in the comic, at least; he'll rip your head off in-game regardless of class). The rest of his team ''might'' have taken such pills too... And the ''other team'', too, seeing as how the Administrator ''wants'' a perpetual stalemate between RED and BLU (well, right up until [[ManVersusMachine the robots show up]], and she would be ''delighted'' to make use of such a thing...)

** We now have an explanation as to why at A couple of the supplementary comics give two possible explanations for the game's respawn mechanic:
*** At

*** It's revealed late in ''[[Webcomic/TeamFortress2 Team Fortress Comics]]'' that [[spoiler:the Medic somehow collected the entire team's souls, including his own, and wound them together in order to cheat a DealWithTheDevil.]] This gives all of the mercenaries the ability to come back from death unscathed, though they can be KilledOffForReal by old age.

* In the [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate]] [[UltimateUniverse Universe]], all recipients of the Oz drug turn out to have this, including Norman Osborn, Peter Parker, and presumably Miles Morales and [[CloningBlues Jessica Drew]]. CrowningMomentofHeartwarming ensues when one realizes that Peter never has to worry about [[spoiler: Mary Jane again, since she was injected during the Ultimate Clone Saga]]; FridgeLogic comes after when one remembers Harry Osborn and Peter's various clones.
