* [[spoiler:Gig and Endorph]] in ''SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'' are both revealed to be alive in TheStinger of the game (although you'll only learn the latter in one of the MultipleEndings).

* In ''{{Solatorobo}}'', after the credits roll [[spoiler:for the first time, Lares' eyes begin to glow under the water. And, of course, it comes back for the second half of the game.]] * GLaDOS in ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' gives us a nice little song about this. Guess what? Even though several rockets were fired, her cores were destroyed, and her body was torn from its wiring and dumped into a parking lot, she's still alive!

* Dr. Eggman from the ''SonicTheHedgehog'' series survives just about everything if he can't just flee from danger. Even if stuck in his collapsing doomsday machines or sent to fall to his death whenever Sonic destroys his escape pods, he'll always return for the next game.

* The poster child for the SlouchOfVillainy, SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} was extremely hard to keep killed even before he convinced Hela to take his name out of the Book of the Dead. He once had his head cut clean off -- which lasted only until his killer left the room before he calmly got up and affixed it back on.

Like A Badass Out Of Hell is being split into new tropes.
Apparently, some villains and other characters have discovered the secret to staying alive even after they've visibly died a horrible, gruesome death. Explanation? Apparently, they don't need one. Maybe they're just too BadAss for death itself. Maybe they bought the advanced ContractualImmortality plan which also includes death insurance. Or maybe they're just [[LikeABadassOutOfHell too tough for Hell to contain]]. Or maybe you were only FightingAShadow and only succeeded in driving them back to hell for a while. Either way, they're given a full SnapBack [[BackFromTheDead from the dead]] at the start of the next episode, game, or season, and all the audience can do is accept the fact that they're back and at it again!

Not to be confused with the ''SaturdayNightFever'' sequel. [[FlayingAlive Or what Willow did to Warren.]] Or that song by Music/TheBeeGees.

* Played for laughs in the final episode of the second ''BlackAdder'' series. It appears that Edmund BlackAdder has saved England and killed the master of disguise who was attempting to assassinate Queen Elizabeth I. But, in a scene [[TheStinger after the ending credits]] said villain is standing over the bodies of the Queen, Edmund, and many of the others, disguised as Queen Elizabeth I. There's no explanation as to how this may have happened.

** Vaati, who (chronologically) first appeared in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMinishCap'', is also shown to be able to do this, most likely through the power of [[spoiler:the hat he stole]]. In ''The Minish Cap'', the endgame implies that he's either dead or eternally sealed... and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwords'' proves he was alive, only sealed -- temporarily, though; he broke out of the Four Sword, hence the game's name. And then, after the rest of the plot, you defeat him ''again'', only for him to, unsurprisingly, return in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwordsAdventures''. This time, he is confirmed to be dead in the Child Timeline through ''Hyrule Historia'', but nothing is said of the other two.

Added DiffLines:
** This becomes a RunningGag in ''WebOriginal/ToBoldlyFlee'', where his RedShirt causes him to have many swift and improbable deaths, even when there's nothing around to kill him. He just shows up alive shortly after, with the HandWave that Red Shirts always are in infinite supply in movies.

* Due to it trying to adapt a MultipleEndings format to {{Anime}}, ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'' tends to leave people seeing the second arc for the first time a similar reaction. To the good guys! There actually [[GroundhogDayLoop is an explanation]], though.
