* Dean Winchester of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' has died at last count five times. He's been brought back every time, almost all of them against his will. His brother Sam and best friend Cas count as well but Dean holds the record as it's been explicitly stated that at this point, nothing short of God himself will be able kill him, especially since as of last season [[spoiler:he killed Death]] and [[spoiler:is linked to God's sister who promised him she'd always protect him and keep him safe.]] whether he wants that or not.

* The fairies in the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series work like this: They have very short live spans, but are reborn in the same shape (a healthy one, that is) as soon as they die even if they're blown to pieces, essentially making them immortal. As a sort of [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] this also gives them a rather [[BlueAndOrangeMorality messed up view of life]]; since they have no concept of death they may consider setting someone aflame and pushing them off a cliff a lighthearted prank.

** Side character Hieda no Akyuu has a variant: she has the bloodline of the Child of Miare, which means she carries the memories of all the Children before her. When she dies, instead of losing the memories and incarnating as something else, she'll spend a certain time in the Netherworld and then arise as the next Child.

*** In ''Mysterion Rises'' it's shown that Kenny's mother becomes magically pregnant with a new Kenny every time he dies and gives birth within a few minutes, making this a combination of BornAgainImmortality and RapidAging to get him back up to eight years old before morning, because [[CthulhuMythos Cthulhu]].

* This is part of the deal with the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]] of ''Webcomic/KillSixBillionDemons''; if slain (which can sometimes require killing their souls separate from destroying their bodies), they crystallize in the void outside of reality into the flame of their soul is stoked back to life again, meaning that they can persist through eternity (although they will lose a certain section of their memories, which is why only one angel remembers the ancient gods despite them all having existed back then). It differs from most in that the time taken for resurrection can vary, and even take a phenomenally long time; the most powerful angels were killed thousands of years before the time of the story, but only one has resurrected since.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'', [[spoiler: the monsters have this. "Killing" them just severs their connection to their corporeal form and forces them back to their dimension, where they can easily reform and return.]]

* Vigilante from the ''Literature/{{Curveball}}'' series can come back to life from absolutely anything. His [[SuperTeam teammates]] keep a body bag around so they have an easy way to transport him while he's "recovering" from a fight.
