Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/SonOfTheSannin'', Rin Nohara of all people is revived by Obito. The process has granted her the first Hokage's [[GreenThumb Wood Release]], a HealingFactor that allows her to even regenerate lost limbs, and she no longer requires food (only water) to sustain herself. According to Zetsu, she's now virtually impossible to kill, just like Obito wanted.


* In ''{{ComicBook/Violine}}'', Muller comes back after surviving his aparent death at the jaws of crocodiles, losing his arms, and replacing them with mechanical ones with claws, giving him increased strength, and [[TookALevelInBadass taking a level in badass]], revealing himself to be the series' GreaterScopeVillain.

* The obscure Golden Age Creator/MarvelComics character Blue Blaze was killed when a tornado caused him to get a face full of mysterious blue fire. Nearly a century later, he suddenly resurrected as a FlyingBrick.


* In the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' storyline ''Robin Rises,'' this accidentally happens with [[{{Robin}} Damian]], who resurrects as a FlyingBrick. Naturally, we get a few issues of him absolutely reveling in his new powers, only for them to suddenly disappear.

to:

* ''ComicBook/RobinSeries'': After being shot during the gang war and revived by Johnny Warlock using her father's life Darla Aquista comes back with incredible magical powers, to the point that she can casually blast ComicBook/{{Superboy|1994}} across Bludhaven and leave him hurting for a while afterwards.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/NowAndAgain'' - the main character Michael Wiseman is a fat guy who dies in a subway accident and is brought back in a new body by the government, described as a "modern day Six Million Dollar Man" who has " strength of Superman, the speed of Michael Jordan, and the grace of Fred Astaire."


* Neo of ''Film/TheMatrix'' only gets to awaken his spoon-bending powers after being killed by Agent Smith in the first movie.

** Smith himself becomes this in the sequels. The first movie ends with Neo destroying him, but he refuses to be deleted and becomes a RogueDrone with the power to [[TheVirus turn others into copies of himself.]]


* Battler, from ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', takes Dlanor's [[OneHitKill Red Key]] through the chest at the climax of Ep5. His death gives him as much time as he needed to think back over the mysteries of the novel, realise what he'd been missing, come to understand the Truth of the Game and will himself back to life as one of the most badass and powerful characters in a series filled with already-overpowered characters.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Benjen's watch was ended by the White Walkers, but The Children of the Forest kept him from turning into a wight and gifted him with some sort of augmented or awakened power in the process, as he's able to ignite a weapon, he can foresee the future and is even aware of the actual contents of Bran's visions.
** When Cersei asks [[MadDoctor Qyburn]] if [[OneManArmy Gregor]] [[OneHitKill Clegane]] is going to come back weaker, he's quick to dismiss the notion, implying this trope. Gregor really didn't need the boost, to be honest. Thanks, Qyburn? Gregor confirms this to be the case when he casually ''rips a man's head off with his bare hands''. Cersei proudly rubs in Ellaria Sand's face that this new Clegane is stronger than ever.
** [[spoiler:Viserion gets a hefty boost after being reanimated as the Night King's wight mount. He gains the ability to breathe blue dragonfire powerful enough to single-handedly destroy Eastwatch and blast through the Wall, an 8000 year old ice barricade fortified by magic. ''All by himself''. He can breathe this fire for a far longer period of time than any of his siblings, even the larger Drogon, have been shown to. And on top of that, he's seemingly gotten much faster in the air.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Sacred Eclipse in ''LightNovel/UndefeatedBahamutChronicle'' can [[AllYourPowersCombined use the powers of the other Ragnarok]], but it initially only has access to the CombatTentacles and HealingFactor of Poseidon. Each time it dies and resurrects, it gains access to more powers, and will eventually become unstoppable.


* ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan'', is literally based on this trope "Steve Austin, astronaut. A man barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world's first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better...stronger...faster."

* Brook from ''Manga/OnePiece'' plays this somewhat straight. He died and came back as a skeleton, so, while he isn't explicitly stronger, he is much faster now, a lot harder to kill, and able to do things like run on water or jump distances that are ridiculous even by [[WorldOfBadass One Piece]] standards. This is all explained by skeleton!Brook apparently having the same level of strength that human!Brook did, but vastly lower mass.

** Baron Tamago's Egg-Egg fruit lets him come back from just about anything stronger than before; the base form usually seen is the Egg form; bisect/smash/generally kill him in that, and he'll crack and spill egg yolk, from which Viscount Hiyoko, a chick (as in baby chicken) version of Tamago, is reborn. Viscount Hiyoko is significantly stronger and ''much'' faster, which gives his killer a nasty surprise. And if you kill ''that'', more yolk is spilled, and from that one Count Niwatori, the rooster version that is strongest of all and "a true knight", is reborn. While parties involved in discovering this flee before they can confront Niwatori, WordOfGod says that if he dies in that form, he just goes back to Tamago, restarting the cycle. It's not entirely known how to make any damage stick, but we know he's not completely invincible since [[ScarsAreForever the scar Pedro gave him long ago is still there]], and it's suggested killing him while the yolk's still fresh is perfectly possible.

Added DiffLines:

** In various versions, the Reincarnate spell had the potential to bring somebody back to life literally stronger, as creatures like Orcs or Bugbears (Although they still had to deal with looking in a mirror).

Added DiffLines:

** Etemon in the first series was swallowed up by a black hole caused when he and Metalgreymon first fought, and was apparently given a DisneyVillainDeath. However, he shows up in the Dark Masters Arc having evolved into Metaletemon.


** Later, Cell self-destructs and [[FromASingleCell re-forms]] thanks to having the Namekian HealingFactor turned UpToEleven, and gets a power boost because he has Saiyan cells. This is the last time this Saiyan trait is specifically mentioned. Even worse, his death happening in close contact with Goku allowed Cell to learn his [[TeleportersAndTransporters Instant Transmission]] technique (he also claims to know the [[CombinedEnergyAttack Spirit Bomb]], but doesn't use it in the anime.)
