* In ''ComicBook/TheMask'' (the original Dark Horse version), Walter is a MadeOfIron hulking bruiser with a masochistic streak, who regularly hurts himself just for fun or to gross out other people. On one occasion, he takes a switchblade and starts cutting the side of his face casually as his employer tries to tell him what he wants Walter to do, and looks quite startled when his employer snaps and tells him to knock it off. On another occasion, he pounds nails into his hand to form a smiley face, then clenches his palm so the blood runs out around the nails and walks away, smiling to himself.

*Inverted in ''Literature/{{Citadel}}''. Jason Grim's power is to [[LifeDrain drain the life]] from living things; each life makes him stronger, and can be [[HealingFactor expended to instantly heal his wounds]]. He goes into one class combat tournament hopped up on nearly a million fruit-fly lives, making him basically unstoppable. The tournament ends with him pitted against his friend Jenny Awesome, whose power doesn't work on him. Before the fight starts, he pulls out a lighter and holds his finger in the flame until his regeneration consumes all the fly lives, then shows her his blistered finger to prove that he's fighting her fairly with neither of them powered up.

* ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' has John Connor order the T-800 to show Dyson he really is a robot. The T-800 peels off the skin and muscle of his arm, only to look at the exposed endoskeleton dispassionately.

* ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' has John Connor order the T-800 to show Dyson he really is a robot. The T-800 peels off the skin and muscle of his arm, only to look at the exposed endoskeleton dispassionately. Dyson is understandably horrified by this, so it takes a few seconds for it to sink in...and then he's horrified for a different reason. His wife, who wouldn't have recognized the significance of the arm, meanwhile was probably wondering what the hell was going on.

* It's not done to show immortality, so it might not count, but in one ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', a recently freed Hork-Bajir is suspected of being controlled by a Yeerk (parasitic alien brain-living slug). His response is to ram his arm blades into his skull and [[CrazyAwesome pull his head apart]] to show his own Yeerk-free brain. Tobias, the narrator of that particular book, points out "it's not like it didn't hurt him, either. I could see the pain on his face." He has a HealingFactor, but it doesn't make it any less awesome.
