Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/StarCraftI'': Zerg Cerebrates usually enjoy ResurrectiveImmortality courtesy of the Overmind that controls them, but ThePowerOfTheVoid, such as that wielded by Protoss Dark Templar, can disrupt that process. One Cerebrate in the Zerg campaign has an OhCrap moment when it realizes that one of its kin has been killed in a way the Overmind can't fix.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'':
** The Originals are the first vampires to ever exist, and are immune to all vampire weaknesses like sunlight and wooden steaks. However, steaks made out of the White Oak tree used to create them can kill them.
** When Esther turned [[spoiler:Alaric Saltzman]] into an "Enhanced" Original vampire, she made him immune to even the White Oak steaks. The only way he could die was if Elena Gilbert died first.
** Arcadius is a powerful psychic who killed himself to create Hell, yet still remained as a NighInvulnerable spirit able to control his new dimension. This is why the only weapons that can kill him are those made of his own bones.


* ''Franchise/BlazBlue'' has the Immortal Breaker weapons, the TropeNamer. These can kill even beings like Observers. The most important example is Tsubaki's short sword Izayoi, which transforms into a LaserBlade in its unsealed state. Mai's spear Outseal, however, is also stated to be an Immortal Breaker.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', young Moon had to deal with an impending war with a race of immortal-through-regeneration lizardmen. Desperate to avoid bloodshed, she acquired a spell that can prevent the regeneration of any damaged part, and used it to intimidate the lizardmen into surrendering immediately.

* In Greek Mythology there is a prophecy that if [[MixAndMatchCritters half bull half snake]] monster were to be sacrificed that the person who did it would be capable of killing the gods, who otherwise were absolutely immortal.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Buffy wields Olaf the troll's hammer (which since being taken from Olaf [[TookALevelInBadass got upgraded to a "troll god's hammer"]] when Anya reasons that a god's weapon kills gods. With assists from other Scoobies [[spoiler: Buffy pulverizes Glory with it but doesn't finish her off although presumably it would crush her skull as easily as her limbs. That falls to Giles, who smothers Ben when Glory retreats to his form]].

* The titular weapon from ''VideoGame/InfinityBlade'' is the only thing that can kill the Deathless, the immortal superhumans and self-styled gods of the post-apocalyptic setting, forged by [[UltimateBlacksmith the Worker of Secrets]] as "a weapon to slay the unslayable". Every Deathless wants their hands on the Infinity Blade so they can rule over the rest of their kind with the threat of true death. [[spoiler:The third game has the Worker of Secrets disperse several mass-produced Infinity Weapons across the continent, which are weaker than the original but still capable of killing the Deathless permanently, in order to plunge the continent into chaos and keep the heroes occupied.]]

** The [[WeaponOfMassDestruction Concept Killing Spear]] is on of the few things capable of truly killing [[AnthropomorphicPersonification a Concept]], and anything it kills is [[RetGone erased from existence]]. This is disastrous, as that takes their Concept of reality with them and also erases anything they're responsible for existing. Even if just used to wound, it can inflict irreparable damage. [[spoiler:Rancor mortally wounds Dark World Discord with it.]]
** It's unclear if they could actually ''kill'' him, the Golden Horseshoes Mimic possessed can bypass Discord's HealingFactor and inflict lasting harm on him. She ultimately busts out one of his fangs, [[WoundThatWillNotHeal which he to this day has not been able to regenerate]] [[spoiler:even with another BodySurf]].

** The Equalizer, aka Hammurabi, is a gun created by God Himself that is capable of killing literally anything, at the cost of [[MutualKill killing the shooter as well]].



* ''Series/{{Lucifer}}'': Stygian blades are one of the few things that can harm demons or angels. Asriel's sword could also, in theory, kill anything, which means a CessationOfExistence for angels, demons, or gods. And it's one of the pieces of Lucifer's flaming sword.
* The Dark One from ''Series/OnceUponATime'' is ageless and virtually unkillable by any conventional means. Even if their body were to be destroyed one way or another, they would be resurrected (with a sacrifice, of course) with the Vault of the Dark One and its key. The only way to permanently kill the Dark One is to use one of three methods - the Dark One's dagger - a kris blade with the Dark One's name inscribed on it that can control his/her will [[spoiler:created by Merlin as a means of slowing down the first Dark One Nimue]] - by stabbing them in the heart. Should the wielder kill the Dark One with it, they themselves inherit their curse and become the new Dark One, their own name replacing theirs on the dagger just as it had happened to the current Dark One Rumpelstiltskin. The sword Excalibur which is what the Dark One's Dagger was made from can permanently kill the Dark One while also destroying the Darkness inside them ensuring they can't be resurrected by the ritual that normally revives them. The third is the Olympian Crystal which has the power to kill any being or entity in the show's verse as it magic that comes directly from the Gods. Inccidently it is also the only way to kill Gods (who are otherwise completely immune to all magic besides their own) and is used to kill Hades.

[[spoiler:The only possible ways that the curse can be broken is either by [[ThePowerOfLove true love's kiss]] or willingly passing it on to the Guardian.]]

* During the Yogg-Saron raid encounter in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', he will periodically spawn Immortal Guardians in Phase 3. The Guardians can be brought down to critical hp, which reduces their damage output, but you will need to enlist [[ShockAndAwe Thorim's]] assistance to to finish them off for real.

** [[SinisterScythe Death's scythe]] is able to kill anything and anyone, ''including'' Death himself. Dean is given the scythe by Death to kill his brother, only for Dean to [[HoistByHisOwnPetard use Death's own weapon against himself]] and dies.
