* In ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'', Nosferatu elder Prudence Stone has this as part of her backstory. Having grown up in Puritan New England, her [[CloudCuckooLander odd behaviour]] ended up condemning her when the witchcraft trials rolled around; found guilty and sentenced to death, she was only saved thanks to her friendship with Osric, a Nosferatu pilgrim, who gave her a vial of his blood and instructions to drink it on the night prior to her execution. As a result, Prudence survived both the NeckSnap and the suffocation until nightfall, when Osric was able to rescue and Embrace her.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': [[spoiler:Kaido]]. They tried hanging him; the rope just broke. They tried again with ''chains''; they also broke. They tried to guillotine him; that ''also'' broke as soon as it hit his neck. He's survived 40 execution attempts so far, simply because he's that indestructible.

It's reached the point he attempts suicide ''for fun'' (and also [[DeathSeeker to figure out if anything can so much as scratch him]]).

* In one of the war novels by SvenHassel, [[UnreliableNarrator Porta]] tells the story of a sailor who can't be hanged because he virtually has no neck. In the end the hangman goes insane with frustration and demonstrates that his rope works perfectly on himself. The authorities decide to kill the condemned by other means, but fortunately he escapes.
