A StockPhrase that's often said after a harrowing, near-death experience. It can also be used as a BadassBoast after coming BackFromTheDead.


[[AC:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'', the [[BackFromTheDead freshly-resurrected]] Kikyou thinks this when she [[http://manga.animea.net/inuyasha-chapter-50-page-15.html stumbles onto a riverbank]] after surviving a very long drop off a cliff.
** ...[[WhyWontYouDie the first time.]]

* In the "ComicBook/WelcomeBackFrank" arc of ''ComicBook/ThePunisher'', Frank interrogates a mook, and after he's done with him throws him out of a moving car. The goon, badly battered but still breathing, starts screaming that he's alive. And then a truck runs over him.

[[AC: LiveActionTV]]
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' - The Tenth Doctor's final episode uses this for a ''very'' cruel HopeSpot. After being warned that YourDaysAreNumbered and narrowly preventing the return of his own people (which would doom the rest of the universe), the Doctor whispers to himself "I'm still alive..." - and then [[spoiler: Wilf knocks four times.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', [[MadScientist Tarantulas]] exclaims a variation of this after [[ItMakesSenseInContext being restored to his new body]]. Parallels to ''Franchise/{{Frankenstein}}'' completely intentional.
-->'''Tarantulas:''' I live... I ''live''!
* In the second episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', Goliath shouts ''two'' variations of this in rapid succession.
--> Goliath: We're alive! We survived!
* {{Deadpool}} screams this trope with glee at the end of ''WesternAnimation/HulkVs. {{Wolverine}}'' when it's revealed that he's the only Weapon X member (out of himself, Sabretooth, Lady Deathstrike, and Omega Red) to survive the Hulk's rampage. [[TemptingFate As he belts this out a second time]], [[DeathFromAbove the Hulk lands on him]]. Deadpool's agonizing groans can be faintly heard afterward.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' after Dash is flung off one of the hovering vehicle things, crashes through the rainforest canopy, and saves himself by clinging to a vine, he steps onto the ground, checks himself over and says "I'm Alive, yahoo!" in surprise and elation.
** And promptly draws the attention of the BigBad's {{Mooks}} again.
* I think one WesternAnimation/VeggieTales movie has a character say this lie in the bloopers after falling off in the set (in the scene, it's a very high cliff)

* ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'''s [=GLaDOS=] gets [[VillainSong a whole song]] devoted to this, which serves as the series SequelHook.
* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', vorcha multiplayer characters can say this when revived by a teammate. Also, in the single player DLC module ''Citadel'', if brought along for the final mission, EDI can say this after [[spoiler:being forcibly unplugged from the rest of the ship when the Clone and his/her mercenary goons hijack the Normandy, and having to do a hard restart because of it. Shepard and Joker are not entirely convinced, as her eyes are all askew.]]
