I Got Better

When someone gets better after an event that in any way harms said character.

Name Space:
Page Type:
Man: "She turned me into a newt!"
Priest: "A Newt?"
Man: "I...I...I got better."
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)

A character has been mortally wounded! Or went into a Heroic B.S.O.D., or even got killed, mutated, thrown into the void, etc.

But they come back (either immediately or later) through inexplicable or explainable means, sometimes to the point where it looks like they just shrugged it off.

They Got Better.

Most times this will happen when said character has Plot Armor or a life saving Plot Device, Or is Resurrected with The Power of Love.

Compare with Not Quite Dead, Back from the Dead and Joker Immunity.
