* If one completes ''VideoGame/{{Halo|CombatEvolved}}'' on Legendary, they are treated to a video of Sergeant Johnson and an Elite fighting over a plasma rifle on the Halo ringworld, who end up hugging as they see The Pillar of Autumn, the ship that destroys said Halo, begin exploding. In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'', ''he's still alive''. How? That's confidential information, soldier. [[note]]OK, the cutscene was just a non-canon easter egg; the book ''Literature/HaloFirstStrike'' explains that he and a few other UNSC personnel managed to escape on a Pelican.[[/note]]

** Also in ''Moon Knight'', Echo was killed after being shot through the chest by Count Nefaria. She showed up alive and well in Charles Soule's ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'' run, with the only explanation being a line in the issue's recap page saying that she'd mysteriously been resurrected through "supernatural" means. Her death isn't even ''mentioned'' in the actual issue itself.

* Subverted in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}''; the original Hydraxon died years before, but Dekar unwillingly gets turned into a clone of him. Another character remarks that he had already died, to which he replies, "I got better."

* During ''ComicBook/TheThanosImperative'' miniseries, Drax the Destroyer, Comicbook/{{Nova}}, Star-Lord, and {{Thanos}} all died, the last three being in a universe that was collapsing in on itself. All of them except for Nova have reappeared in major series with no explanation for their survival or escape. Pretty blatant example, since all of them died only two years before their return. Even more blatant for Drax, because he was outright confirmed to be dead, charred remains and all.

** When one gets down to it, though, the anime is actually following the game's logic. After a Pokemom faints, a Pokemon Center easily restores them to full health. Therefore, it's easily explainable.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime is specially guilty of this and does it all the time in different ways:
** Evolutions during battles are treated as free Full Restores just to make them more tense against the winning trainer. May double as DeusExMachina or DiabolusExMachina, and sometimes a definite AssPull.
** Right after intense battles, the defeated and badly battered monster will be seen standing and looking pristine as ever. Never mind the fact they took about 10 beams of energy to the face.
** The trope is only ever averted when a battle causes a fatal broken limb. This condition appears very, very rarely.
