* PlayedForLaughs in ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'' when Kronk and Yzma fall down a chasm while chasing the heroes, only to [[DiabolusExMachina somehow turn up at the palace]]:
-->'''Kuzco''': No! It can't be! How did you get back here before us?
-->'''Yzma''': Uh...um...How ''did'' we, Kronk?
-->'''Kronk''': Well, ya got me. (''pulls down a diagram of the path they took'') By all accounts, it doesn't make sense.

* ''Franchise/WonderMomo'': Ahiko[=/=]Amazonia is killed by [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity a power-tripping Momoko[=/=]Wonder Momo]] ripping out her power orb. Ahiko reappears about a dozen strips later; no explanation of how she survived OR got back to Earth. Ahiko changes the subject when someone tries to ask.

** Similarly, ''Film/JasonGoesToHellTheFinalFriday'' makes no effort to explain how Jason bounced back from his toxic waste dip at the end of ''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartVIIIJasonTakesManhattan Jason Takes Manhattan]]''. Nor does ''Film/JasonX'' explain how Jason came back after being DraggedOffToHell at the end of ''The Final Friday'', though ''Film/FreddyVsJason'' reveals that he was resurrected by [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]].

* In the original ''ComicBook/HowardTheDuck'' comic book, Howard's archenemy Dr. Bong had a French duck maid named Fifi, who ended up getting killed off in the 19th issue after helping Howard escape. In spite of this, she returned alive and well to assist Dr. Bong in his scheme to make television programs more realistic out of his irrational contempt for Saturday morning cartoons in the fifth issue of ''The Sensational She-Hulk''.

* The last time we see [[spoiler:Capt. Alan Barnes]] in ''[[Literature/TheLaundrySeries The Atrocity Archive]]'', [[spoiler:he's on a hospital bed being treated for 500 rems of radiation poisoning]]. Then in ''The Jennifer Morgue'', [[spoiler:he shows up with TheCavalry like nothing happened]]. Bob lampshades it in the RPG by wondering what the Laundry had to promise to whom to get this effect.

* ''[[ComicBook/XMenGoldAndBlue X-Men: Blue]]'' reveals that Comicbook/{{Quicksilver}} is one of the characters who survived the destruction of the UltimateMarvel universe during ''Comicbook/SecretWars2015''. This ignores the fact that Ultimate Quicksilver had already been long dead by the time ''Secret Wars'' took place, as he was killed by Kang the Conquerer in one of the last issues of ''Comicbook/TheUltimates'' before the post-''Comicbook/{{Cataclysm|The Ultimates Last Stand}}'' ReTool.

* {{Fanfic/Nightfall}}: All the characters are alive again post game, including John's Dad [[spoiler:who unlike everyone else was KilledOffForReal without reappearing in a dream bubble]]. The only exception, so far, are Bec and Jadesprite who're both merged with the current Jade.

* ''Anime/BloodPlus'' has Diva's Chevaliers come back from certain death on multiple occasions, including [[spoiler:Amshel being ''impaled on the Empire State Building's spire and struck by lightning, becoming a charred, blackened corpse'']]. He comes back the very next episode with gaping hole in his body but more or less okay. The only time they're explicitly KilledOffForReal is when they're poisoned by Saya's blood and actually shown crumbling to pieces on-screen.

[[spoiler:The epilogue shows that Nathan, who ''was'' exposed to Saya's blood (which is an incurable poison to Diva's Chevaliers), is still alive. This is never specifically explained, but in retrospect one of his previous statements can be taken to imply that ''he's not one of Diva's Chevaliers at all''.]]



*** Kira gets another one in [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny the sequel]] where he manages to survive his nuclear reaction exploding literally underneath him. Somehow. They later try to HandWave this by saying Kira turned off the reactor before it exploded. Nevermind the fact that it was exploding in the first place because a gigantic energy sword had been shoved in it and there was in fact a nuclear explosion (complete with mushroom cloud after the fact). Yeah there are a LOT of reasons this series isn't well-liked.
