* Used to great effect in the ''Vento Aureo'' a.k.a ''Golden Wind'' arc of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' when Bruno goes to confront Diavolo and is suddenly impaled from behind by his Stand, King Crimson, and looked to have died. But somehow manages to live through it without a scratch on him to which he figures his stand managed to deflect the blow. [[spoiler: However it's later found out that that the attack really did kill him. But Bruno's strong will combined with his Stand powers allowed him to come back to life as something of a zombie to finish his mission. Once they finally manage to defeat Diavolo, Bruno passes on.]]

* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'':
** The main characters frequently suffer vicious injuries in the series, including losing chunks of flesh, breaking bones, and spraying HighPressureBlood from injuries that by all accounts should have [[CareerEndingInjury ended their adventure right there]] if not outright killed them. Yet, aside from plot-relevant injuries that keep them out of the game for awhile (such as Kakyoin being temporarily hospitalized from having his [[EyeScream eyes slashed]]), the heroes are often back to full strength without comment by their next scene, or by the next episode at the latest.

** In the final episode of the "Comicbook/{{Thunderbolts}}" story arc from Season 3, Klaue is transformed into a being of living sound, and then seemingly dies after being completely disintegrated. He returns in the episode "Panther's Rage," where not only is he still alive, but he's regained his human form as well. Klaue just gives a dismissive {{Handwave}} when it's pointed out that there's no way he could have survived being disintegrated.

* ''[[Comicbook/XMenBlueAndGold X-Men: Blue]]'' reveals that Comicbook/{{Quicksilver}} is one of the characters who survived the destruction of the UltimateMarvel universe during ''Comicbook/SecretWars2015''.

* ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'': The end of the "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Death of Spider-Man]]" arc ends with Peter Parker's death after his final battle with the Green Goblin, who [[MutualKill also dies]], with Miles Morales subsequently [[LegacyCharacter taking up the Spider-Man identity]]. In the first issue of ''Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man'', two years after his death, Peter suddenly shows up alive and well at Miles' house, seeking to take back his web-shooters and get back in the game. He later explains that he simply woke up one day in an abandoned lab, and has no idea how he returned from the dead. The arc ends with he and Mary Jane RidingIntoTheSunset, leaving Miles to carry on the fight as Spider-Man.

* In ''VideoGame/{{PAYDAY2}}'', a bonus Escape mission may trigger after the end of a heist, resulting in your escape van crashing, and your driver, Twitch, dying. Despite this, Twitch will still be called in just ''minutes'' later to get you out, in an identical-looking van, while the original Twitch's corpse is still present.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', Comicbook/TheVision becomes badly damaged at the end of "Ultron Unlimited". He then appears briefly in "Yellowjacket", in perfect condition. This recovery becomes undone just as inexplicably in "Emperor Stark", which begins with him getting repaired in ComicBook/IronMan's laboratory. This example arose from "Yellowjacket" having different writers than the episodes preceding and following it.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'': Squall takes an ice shard to the chest, and wakes up fine by the next disc.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'': Squall takes an ice shard to the chest, and wakes up fine by the next disc. Maybe. A popular fan theory, Squall's Dead, uses the idea that he died then and the rest of the game is "his life flashing before his eyes", as a way to explain how off the rails the story went from that point on.

* Creator/MichaelCrichton's ''Literature/TheLostWorld1995'', the sequel to ''Literature/JurassicPark'', is a prime example of this trope. In the book ([[SparedByTheAdaptation although not in]] TheMovie), Ian Malcolm suffers from septicemia from a ''T. rex'' bite, and is said to be dead during a conversation near the end of the novel. At the beginning of ''The Lost World'', however, he is shown giving a lecture at a university, with no explanation other than that he was "only [[SortingAlgorithmOfDeadness slightly dead]]".

Crichton hated sequels and did not write them. The Lost World was only written at the insistence of Spielberg so that he could make another movie, and since he didn't kill Malcome (or Hammond) in the 1st movie Crichton was forced to retcon their deaths. Made worse by the fact Spielberg didn't use Crichton's Lost World as the basis for the 2nd movie.[[/note]]
