** This trait of Luffy's is eventually [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] in the Impel Down/Whitebeard War arc. His determination to save Ace is so great that he travels to [[TheAlcatraz Impel Down]] where he is curb stomped by the warden, goes through a procedure that shaves off some of his life span, recieves a temporary adrenaline superboost, has to claw his way out of the prison after missing Ace, then travels to Marineford, where an armada awaits. He has to fight through the Marines, including [[AntiVillain The]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Three]] [[GeneralRipper Admirals]], the [[PsychoForHire Seven Warlords of the Sea]] and his own [[BadassGrandpa grandfather]]. And despite all the obsticles he has to push through, [[spoiler: He '''still''' didn't save Ace!]]

** Kamijou Touma. Burn him with fire of about 4000ºC, cut his arm off, crush him with I-Beams, send a giant golem, call an angel or fight him using the power of God's Right Hand, ArchangelMichael and he won't step back, he will keep going on to acomplish his goals. Is it any wonder he's called [=TouMAN=] by the fandom?

* ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV''
** Yuya just never stops which is especially evident in the Synchro Arc. [[spoiler:In the last stretch of the Synchro Arc, Yuya is tortured by an electric shock chip which knocks him out and nearly killed him. After a few minutes of rest, Yuya rushes to save his friends and is unable to do anything by Barrett as Barrett tries to force Yuzu's location out of him. This gets worse as Yugo and Yuri arrive, which causes the three of them to awaken, causing him extreme pain. He's saved by this when Yuzu arrives but with the added "bonus" of launching him into the ceiling. He then loses against Sergey as Sergey's monster electrocutes Yuya so badly he can't stand. After a rest for a bit, he goes out to find Yuzu again!]]

* Alibaba from ''Anime/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic'', when he first started to use his Djinn Equip fire power, failed because he couldn't concentrate the flames into his blade enough to summon [[AbsurdlySharpBlade Amon's sword]]. When he faces up against a fighter who he absolutely cannot beat with Djinn Equip, he still can't, so he ''engulfs his entire body in fire to create enough flames to summon the sword'', an act which blackens the skin of his sword-wielding arm. He then slices the fighter in half with once slice. "Set ablaze!" indeed.

* ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' has Chiaki Nanami. [[spoiler:Her execution involves her powering through a dungeon from hell, avoiding or straight-up tanking death trap after death trap fueled by nothing but the desire to see her friends again. Even when blood loss finally does her in, she goes out stubbornly clinging to life to her last breath.]]

* Ayato Kamina ([[IThoughtYouMeant no, not]] [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann THAT one!]]) of ''Anime/RahXephon'' plays this trope straighter than a ruler. At one point, upon being told it'd take a miracle to save someone, he ''accepts it as a challenge'' '''''and pulls it off!'''''

* ''Anime/PsychoPass'': Averted and Played Straight. Only one character who tries to play it straight survives, and she averts it hard. Playing it straight in any context is also considered a latent crime.

* The whole cast of ''Manga/AstraLostInSpace'' could qualify, but Kanata in particular, thanks to surviving a harrowing disaster that included the death of his teacher, has grown averse to hopelessness.

** [[BunnyEarsLawyer Might Guy]] gets major points during the War when he repeatedly activates the Gates despite [[HeroicRROD not having recovered/healed fully from the prior activations]], leaving him practically paralyzed in some instances. Then when even that is proven ineffective, he goes ahead and pulls out the [[DeadlyUpgrade Eighth Gate]].
