The power to be immortal by not staying dead. Variation of Immortality.


The user is immortal in the sense that when they do die, they won't stay dead. This can be the result of instant resurrection, being reborn, transferring one's mind/soul into a clone, etc. They can die from any causes, from physical trauma, disease or simple aging, but the user will always come back.





  • The user may still age, making the aging the only true and final cause of death.
  • May be negated or even removed entirely.
  • May have limited range to how many times they can be resurrected, i.e. Multiple Lives.
