** This is a classic trend in all ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' games, which don't let death get in the way of continuing. In most games, you and your companions are simply teleported back to Lord British (there is, in fact, a specific spell - 'Kal Lor' - that does this, which Lord British uses) who uses his awesome healing magic to restore you. (Even in the fifth game, when Lord British has vanished, his ghostly form will do the job.) In ''Savage Empires'' and ''Martian Dreams'', passersby will drag your nearly dead bodies back to the shaman and ship's doctor respectively. In ''[[VideoGame/UltimaVIIPartII Serpent Isle]]'', the Xenkan monks will teleport you to them and raise you, and you can summon one to resurrect your friends at any time.

Added DiffLines:

Basically, a character is in [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat a situation it seems no one could survive]], and later they turn up clinging to life in a hospital.

* Played for Laughs in ''Film/TheWeddingPlanner'': Mary is pushed out of the way of a hurtling dumpster, passes out, and wakes up in a hospital with a doctor leaning over her. Actually, it's a little girl 'pretending' to be a doctor; Mary's rescuer was a pediatrician, and brought her to the children's hospital where he worked.

* In the animated ''[[Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie Street Fighter 2]]'' movie, Chun-Li is wounded in her fight against Vega roughly half-way through the movie. After Ryu and Ken defeat Bison in the climax, Guile goes to the hospital where she's staying, and talks to her unmoving body, which is covered in bandages. Suddenly Chun-Li pulls off the bandages and sits up - she's made a full recovery while off-screen, and was pretending to be seriously wounded and unable to leave the bed to prank him.

Suddenly Chun-Li the news, but finds her with a sheet pulled up over her face, as if she'd died. He sadly tells her that at least Bison went down- then she suddenly pulls off the bandages sheet and sits up - she's made a full recovery while off-screen, and was up, even showing him the newspaper with news of Shadowlaw's destruction in it, revealing she already knew. She'd just been pretending to be seriously wounded and unable to leave the bed dead to prank him.

** In the ExpandedUniverse ''XWingSeries'', Wraith Squadron pilot Garik "Face" Loran is injured pretty badly when his X-wing is screwed up beyond repair by enemy laser fire. His behavior and the little detail we're given as to the exact nature of his injuries lead us to believe he's dying, but then he wakes up in the hospital at the end.

* ''{{Futurama}}'' had an episode where Fry and Leela are stung by a giant alien killer bee. Fry dies and Leela is convinced that he is still speaking to her somehow from beyond the grave. It turns out she actually dreamed it all while in a coma thanks to the bee's venom, and Fry had been at her bedside the whole time, [[ConverseWithTheUnconscious begging her to]] PleaseWakeUp.
