A process whereby the dead are brought back to life, generally in another body, or an earlier time.

Reincarnation is generally distinct from resurrection in that the character generally wakes up in a different body, sometimes in a different world or a different time. This is a common origin where someone dies (often via a truck) and wakes up in another world, often in an existing person's body. Another common trope is a person dying, and then waking up at an earlier time in their life, with their future memories, and sometimes abilities, intact.
