* ''VideoGame/{{Fable I}}'' uses a variant. If the Hero dies, the player is forced to reload. However, the Hero can find and buy "Resurrection Phials." If the Hero dies while carrying Resurrection Phials, he'll lose one Phial and have his health partially restored. He can carry up to nine. Later games in the series eschew this system entirely.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/PaydayTheHeist'' and [[VideoGame/Payday2 its sequel]] use hostages as an ad-hoc lives system. If a crew member is downed during a police assault and secured before they can be revived, the other players can initiate a hostage exchange between assaults to have the arrested crew member returned to action. This means that the number of lives available for a heist is never fixed, it depends on the number of zip ties the crew has, the number of civilians they can take, and their ability to stop the police rescuing them prematurely.

* ''VideoGame/MightyNo9'' gives you 3 by default, however you can increase this number to 9 for Normal mode in the options menu.



* ''VideoGame/RayStorm'' (part of the ''VideoGame/RaySeries'') makes this a JustifiedTrope: your extra lives come in the form of the other R-Gray craft in your squadron. When one is destroyed, the next one takes its place.

* ''VideoGame/MakaiToshiSaga'' (''The VideoGame/FinalFantasy Legend'', in North America) is another rare example of an RPG using lives. Each party member has three hearts. If they run out of HP, they can be revived at a House of Life, but doing so requires a heart in addition to a fee for the revive. If a party member has no hearts when they die, [[FinalDeath they cannot be revived]] and will have to be "retired" at a guild outpost to make room for a new party member.

* ''VideoGame/CarriesOrderUp'' uses a "miss" system similar to ''VideoGame/GameAndWatch''; it's three strikes and you're out, but [[LawOf100 you can erase a miss by collecting enough coins]]. You can't, however, earn more lives than the cap of three.
