Sure, he's a nervous wreck who practically serves as [[{{Jobber}} training for aspiring other boxers]], but [[{{Determinator}} not only has he accepted 99 matches, he goes through the fight to the very end]], subverting the CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys stereotype.

* [[FridgeBrilliance In a sense]], Mac retiring after three defeats in Mac's Last Stand is this. As the world champion, he chooses to retire from his career once it becomes clear he's losing his touch; to him, retiring while still being known as a champion is better than suffering a humiliating chain of defeats and being remembered as a has-been.

* [[{{Badass}} Mr. Sandman]] Sandman gets two on the Wii.



* [[{{Badass}} Mr. Sandman]]'s final rush in Title Defense Mode on the Wii. Basically if he's one KO away from losing the match, Mr. Sandman will start attacking with a flurry of uppercuts. If the player survives the onslaught Mr. Sandman will completely drop his guard out of exhaustion. This enables you to combo him as much as you want, and get stars for doing so. Finish up the combo with a [[{{Shoryuken}} 3-Star Punch]] and you win. ''Awesomely''.
* There's another one for the fight against Mr. Sandman, but for Little Mac instead. When your first fight with him starts, it shows him entering the stadium, so large that the ''[[BadVibrations ground is shaking with every step he takes.]]'' When Doc sees him, he lets out a small [[{{Oh Crap}} groan]] of fear, followed by another more questionable one at Little Mac as if to say, "Are you sure about this?". Little Mac's response?... [[{{Death Glare}} He furrows his eyebrows]] at him, [[{{Nerves of Steel}} pats his fists together,]] and then [[{{Badass}}calmly stands up to start the fight.]] Considering the fact that he's doing this against a man who is twice as tall as him, over a hundred pounds heavier than him, and is notorious for knocking all of his opponents out in one punch, [[{{Determinator}}this only further proves how brave and determined Little Mac really is.]]
** In Title Defense, Mr. Sandman's re-introduction consists of him taking a gander at Little Mac and immediately goes into a roaring rage. You know you're one of the best boxers in the association when you turn a previously-undefeated boxer roughly twice your size into a raging SoreLoser.

* The ComebackMechanic were Little Mac supposedly gets KO'd, but [[{{Determinator}} manages to keep standing with his last ounce of strength]]. It's even more awesome if you ''manage to win''.
** And it's one of the Challenges for TD Mr. Sandman, as well.
* ''Beating Mike Tyson!''
** If you've defeated Mike Tyson/Mr. Dream in the NES version, you might as well consider yourself a true champion.
* When Doc asks Mac if he's sure he wants to do [[spoiler:The Last Stand]], Mac's response is a simple punch at him (he misses a few inches though, but he proved his point).
** Also worth noting Doc didn't flinch in the slightest, but calmly responded with "OK Sonů"

* Losing to [[WarmupBoss Glass]] [[ButtMonkey Joe]] in Title Defense ([[TookALevelInBadass Which is surprisingly easy to do]]) theoretically means he becomes world champion. Read that again. '''It's very possible for Glass Joe to become World Champion.'''

** When he comes back for a rematch in Title Defence Mode, he gets a new montage. He punches the walls of a brick building, and then the whole building collapses. He ''punched out a building''. Dude is ''[[ScaryBlackMan scary]]''.
