* {{Youkai}} in ''Manga/InuYasha'' are apparently made of invulnerable. Ignoring those who can project forcefields and those who design their own bodies and throw away weak parts, they just don't seem to die from normal causes. Inuyasha, a halfbreed, can completely heal from wounds that should be mortal in less than a day, and there are examples of them living for days without their ''heads''. It seems to take either holy energy, destroying their heart (which they might be storing outside of their body), or a more-powerful youkai effect to directly destroy the source of their life force to do it.

The chief villain Naraku spends much of the storyline building up better and better layers of invulnerability in an arms race with the heroes' evolving abilities and weapons.

** The Quincies are extremely tough thanks to Blut, a technique that channels reiatsu through their veins and arteries to either boost their attack power or their defensive power. Blut can protect them from truly insane injuries.

* The [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]] in ''ChronoCrusade'' are the Regeneration type, at least the high-power ones. Their ability to heal themselves is so strong that one demon manages to quickly regenerate (with some help from a magical jewel) after being so severely wounded his stomach was sliced open and ''his intestines were spilling out''. They do have some weaknesses (including [[HolyBurnsEvil holy water]], grave head injuries, and having their heart removed from their body), but it takes quite a bit to truly kill them.

** 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.

* 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.''
