* In ''Videogame/CrusaderKings II'', if you're playing as a [[AChildShallLeadThem child character]], your [[RegentForLife regent]] will sometimes try to kill you in order to [[TheUsurper usurp]] your throne. Multiple times. If you survive all of the attempts (usually by dumb luck), he/she will eventually go insane and try to stab you to death in your sleep, all the while yelling the trope name word-for-word as he/she gets dragged away by your guards. Meanwhile, [[ChildrenAreInnocent you have no idea what's going on]].

* ''Videogame/MinecraftStoryMode'': In episode 5, [[spoiler:Aiden]] has this response when [[spoiler:Jesse comes back to fight him, after Aiden previously had thrown Jesse off Sky City into what was presumably the Void below, unaware that there was actually land down there]].

* Parodied in an episode of ''{{Bottom}}'': On getting a whiff of the lethal alcoholic mixture Eddie carries around in his hip flask, Richie inquires 'How are you alive?'. Eddie grins, taps the side of his nose, and cheerfully replies 'I may very well not be.'

** As quoted above, Freeza tell Goku to stop not-dying when he begins to grow frustrated with him.
** Said verbatim by Vegeta against Cell. After Cell [[NoSell No Sells]] the Final Flash, Vegeta blasts him over and over with smaller attacks and shouts this at the top of his lungs.
--> '''Vegeta''': WHY WON'T YOU DIE!?
--> '''Cell''': Dear Prince, [[LampshadeHanging has this ever worked?]]

* ''WalkerTexasRanger'': The 1998 episode "Warriors" had an instance of this, where Walker tried to kill the enforcer of a supremacist group, whose ringleader was attempting to create an army of genetically superior, undefeatable soldiers to aid in his ultimate goal of world domination. The trope comes into play when Walker and Trivette were attempting to stop the group from kidnapping a genetic researcher. After Trivette is roughed up by the [[NoSell unbeatable enforcer]] and about to be killed, Walker shows up and attempts to shoot the enforcer ... emptying his gun while shooting him in the head and chest. The enforcer merely absorbed the bullets as a dumbfounded Walker tried to reload his gun, before Walker was also beaten up. After the villains leave, the dazed Walker and Trivette try to figure out why they couldn't even so much as make the enforcer flinch, despite following procedures and aiming at vital areas. (Not to worry: In the end, Walker with some help does figure out a way to beat the enforcer.)

* Brad Willis from ''{{Neighbours}}'': He was shot by Bob Landers, attacked by a shark, saved Beth and Hannah from a burning cottage... and none of it killed him.

* ''TopGear'' once tried to destroy a Toyota Hilux by having it suffering a series of increasingly terrible accidents. Driving down stairs, driving into a tree, leaving it at the beach at low-tide, driving through a hut, dropping a caravan on it, and bashing it with a wrecking ball didn't kill it. So they set it on fire. That's didn't work either. So they tried again in a later episode and cranked it UpToEleven.

* Morriseys song "Margaret on the Guillotine"; asks this question in regards to MargaretThatcher.
* the {{Eminem}} song ''Go to Sleep'' features a variation. Namely, "why are you still alive!?"
* TheGoons' song, "Bluebottle Blues", is a duet between the usually-heroic Neddy Seagoon and perpetual ButtMonkey Bluebottle, in which the former does his best to kill the latter. Finding Bluebottle still bemoaning his lot after one particularly nasty attempt, Seagoon comments irritably, "...still ALIVE?"

** Any player feels this with enemies covered with PlotArmor in the third game. Kai Leng deserves a special mention because you just ''know'' that if the mechanics were being fair during their fight on [[spoiler: Thessia]] you could blow that motherfucker to pieces no problem.
