** Offensive styles can 'pull themselves back together', while Defensive styles are supposedly able to regenerate limbs. The characters themselves also seem to be undaunted except when the story says they should be.

** Priscilla's true strength instead is her extraordinary [[FromASingleCell regeneration]], so powerful that it is said to be closer to "creation" rather than normal Claymore regeneration. She has survived tremendous attacks, her head being cut in several parts (in a setting where cutting the head is usually the only way to guarantee that something will stay dead) and even ''her entire body being shattered into pieces''!

** Part 5 also brings us a notable example in the form of the stand, Notorious B.I.G., which was actually activated by the user's ''death'', and as such could not be killed. It was brainless, but relentless and unstoppable, absorbing any blows and regenerating from any damage. It simply attacked whatever was moving fastest around it, and [[spoiler:was never truly defeated. All they could do was ditch it into the middle of the ocean, where it continued attacking whatever was moving fastest around it, perpetually chasing waves. According to the narrator, occasionally ships go missing in that area of the ocean, and it's why.]]

* Akuma Shogun of ''{{Kinnikuman}}'' uses everything but extreme luck in a single fight. His armor is made from combining the bodies of the Six Devil Knights, and if injured he simply ejects and re-absorbs them to Regenerate. He can change his "Choujin Hardness" to make his body harder or softer as needed. The result is that if caught in a hold, he can become Made of Rubber/The Blob to squirm out of it, or to power up can become literally Hard as Diamond to strengthen himself. It's shown that within his armor is nothing, meaning his body is actually Made of Air so most techniques can't even harm him because there's no body to harm. To top it all off, ''he's also a god''. His ultimate weakness is his head, which controls all of the above. But even then, getting in a blow strong enough to significantly damage it is no small feat.

* This is one of [[TenchiMuyo The Light Hawk Wings]] most useful features. [[UpToEleven Basically anything actually powerful enough to breach them would destroy the universe as collateral damage]].

** Virtually all S-class beings in the later parts of the manga are this. Considering you have to be a PhysicalGod to qualify as a S-class, this isn't exactly surprising.

* Captain Bravo from BusouRenkin via his Kagugane ability of ''Silver Skin'' that is, at least as seen in the series, completely impenetrable and even immune to the BigBad's [[LifeDrain life drain]].

* Saitama from ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan'' is [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Nigh-Invulnerable]]. Every attack against him (that are usually done by giant monsters) doesn't even phase him. If he isn't even bothering to tank it he'll just bounce around like a destructive rubber ball without even taking a scratch, and if he does bother he's basically unmovable. He's been punched to the ''Moon'', and just jumped back to Earth, not even winded.

When the psychic alien Geryuganshoop used his telekinetic gravitation wave on him, which was said to be as powerful as a black hole, not only was Saitama not even phased by it he was actually ''disappointed.''

Added DiffLines:

** This trope is relative in the series. A fully defensive Super Saiyan, even the weakest ones in the series, could take forces far exceeding the entire nuclear arsenal of our world without a scratch on them, but because of the ever escalating nature of threats, what was once nigh invincible (and still is in comparison with many other series) can be taken out with one shot by the new bad guy.

** Aizen Sōsuke, after fusing with the Hōgyoku, survives otherwise fatal injuries. Later, it's confirmed even Ichigo's StoryBreakerPower can't kill him. As long as the Hōgyoku is fused to him, Aizen's officially regarded as immortal.

* A villainess in ''Manga/{{Speed Grapher}}'' is ''literally'' made of diamond, a power apparently supported by her frequently eating diamonds (in one case, by biting off some unfortunate girl's ring finger.) In addition to the damage resistance this implies, it's difficult to focus a camera on her ([[MagicalCamera the protagonist's main way of killing things]].) [[spoiler:A can of spray-paint gives him something to focus on, leaving her barely alive. Her boss subsequently determines that she's [[YouHaveFailedMe not so good]] against ThePowerOfBlood.)]]

* Viral of ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' became Nigh Invulnerable after Lord Genome gave him immortality complete with a HealingFactor, although it only sees use once. The [[spoiler:Anti-Spiral leader]] is a Made Of Air EnergyBeing variant, but [[spoiler: that doesn't stop him being killed by a giant hole drilled through his chest]].
