** 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 him to pieces no problem.

* In one of the endings of [[VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors 999]], Ace [[spoiler: (who has had his heel nature exposed to the cast) is discovered by Snake to have been the one who killed his sister, Clover. He proceeds to empty an entire clip into the enraged Snake, including a shot TO THE FOREHEAD, and Snake STILL gets up and tries to kill him.]] He then exclaims this trope's title exactly.

* In ''Literature/{{Rihannsu}}: Honor Blade'', Romulan Praetor Gurrhim tr'Siedhri miraculously survives a gunshot wound to the chest ''and'' an intentionally botched surgery to ostensibly repair the damage. Those responsible, his political rivals in the Praetorate, complain that "Farmer Gurri" can't even ''die'' right. Note he would have died eventually, [[spoiler:but his aides and some of the soldiers manage to break him out of the warbird's sickbay and get him to the ''Enterprise'', whereupon Bones [=McCoy=] redoes the surgery properly]].

* Hardgore Alice from ''LightNovel/MagicalGirlRaisingProject'' has the ability to regenerate from any damage done to her.her, which frustrates Calamity Mary greatly as she blows apart Hardgore Alice and sets her on fire and then shoves her into a steel container and tosses her into the sea. Hardgore Alice still survives, [[LaughingMad destroying what little remained of Calamity Mary's restraint]].

* Often heard as a traditional response to any player forced to oppose a [=BattleMech=] classified as a 'zombie flashbulb' in ''TabletopGame/BattleTech.'' 'Zombie' means that the 'Mech is designed with thick armor, hardy physical construction, and will [[TheDeterminator generally keep fighting]] short of shooting out [[GoingCritical the fusion engine]] or [[BoomHeadshot the cockpit]], and 'flashbulb' means that the 'Mech carries an arsenal designed solely around [[BeamSpam energy weapons]], which have no volatile ammunition to detonate and no limit on how many shots they can fire beyond the risk of {{overheating}}. This translates into a [=BattleMech=] that can be reduced to a head perched precariously atop an engine with two legs attached that might ''still'' be attacking. Few [=BattleMechs=] are naturally that tenacious, but there are designs which take MadeOfIron to a very literal extreme.
** Taken Up to Eleven by the Archangel in 4 of its 6 variants (the other 2 heavy explosive components). It's 100 tons (as heavy as mechs get), and has max armor (307), so combined with internal structure it can feasibly absorb over 400 damage and keep fighting. If that wasn't enough, it's got a Compact Engine and Gyro, cutting the chance of engine or gyro hits in half, from 6/12 and 4/12 to 3/12 and 2/12. Oh, and it carries several Head and Center torso mounted weapons.

* Especially nasty DM's can throw monsters at the party that evoke this response. In particular a Half Black Dragon templated War Troll. The war trolls regeneration is only halted by acid damage while the Half Dragon template grants it immunity to acid damage. This creates a neigh unkillable monster that will regenerate from any amount of damage no matter how far past 0 its left.
