* Checkmate of ''[[Anime/KinnikumanNisei UltimateMuscle]]'' is both an example and a subversion at the same time. He's been raised to be immune to pain, so he's able to go far longer than any other wrestler. However, the series plays that notion straight, as it's pointed out that someone immune to pain wouldn't know when they had gone past their limit. This ability magically disappeared, though, when [[RedemptionDemotion he joined the good guys.]]

* Of course, the original FlyingBrick himself, Franchise/{{Superman}}. Can survive in the heart of a supernova. Most versions of him can, anyway, and some also add super-healing and immortality on top of that. Originally, his skin could be pierced by a "bursting artillery shell", but his powers [[PowerCreepPowerSeep creeped and seeped]].

Added DiffLines:

* Superman's cousin ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' has this, too. In ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' she gets dumped in a star and survives.

Added DiffLines:

* Symbiotes from ComicBook/SpiderMan usually have strong HealingFactor|s however they seem to get stronger the more attached they are to their hosts.
** Anti-Venom had enough of Eddie Brock's personality that when the Punisher blew his brains out it reassembled them so that he cold protect [[MoralityChain Jenna Cole]].
** ComicBook/{{Carnage}} is even worse He's still alive after loosing his entire lower half at the hands of Sentry, also recently the symbiote was able to somehow fix his brain after a lobotomy and even more recently he was blown to bits after smothering [[ComicBook/{{Axis}} a bomb designed to kill every non-mutant in New York]] and came back only slightly weakened, the symbiote just dosen't want to give Cletus up.

* The Saint of Killers from ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}''. Scratch the "Nigh"; presumably a living saint walking the earth is considered a paradox by the laws of physics, and they find it comfortable to ignore him. His utter immunity to damage (of the Divine Protection sort) is first shown when he [[ImmuneToBullets ignores a hail of gunfire from a dozen cops]]. The villain, after he sees that the Saint is bulletproof, is [[GenreSavvy smart enough]] to bring a battalion of tanks to their next clash, only for the Saint to shrug off multiple tank shells to the face and proceed to [[InstantDeathBullet kill everyone present]]. The villain, [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy who anticipated even this]], drops a [[NukeEm nuclear bomb]] on him as a coup de grace. Cut to the Saint, standing amidst the nuclear fire, ''[[NoSell completely unharmed]]''.

* Marv from "ComicBook/SinCity". Being ran over by a car, sledgehammered in the face and shot in the head just didn't cut it. [[spoiler:Being eletrocuted a SECOND time did.]]

* In the game of ''VideoGame/TheDarkness'', one of the powers The Darkness grants Jackie Estacado is to protect him from virtually any harm... and if he does manage to die, it just rewinds time to a point when he's alive (the justification for the game's checkpoint system), or sends his spirit to The Otherworld while it rebuilds his body. Presumably, The Darkness has some variation on these powers in the comics, as well, but this editor is not familiar with them.

* Ben Grimm from ''ComicBook/UltimateFantasticFour''. Pretty much nothing is capable of seriously hurting him. [[spoiler:Even more so after he evolves]].
