* 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!'''''

** This trait of Luffy's is eventually [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] [[UpToEleven so]] [[TearJerker hard]] 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!]]

* ''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]].

* In ''Manga/SangatsuNoLion'', Nikaido plays shogi with this mindset.

* Watanuki of ''Manga/XxxHOLiC'' proves to be incredibly stubborn, in a rather dangerous sense. The earliest example of this that stands out is when he starts visiting a woman he befriended, every day, without fail, because he doesn't want her to feel lonely. [[spoiler: Even when he learns that being in her presence is slowly killing him]]. Later it even becomes common for him to assert in a bad situation that he won't die, because he'll "survive through determination".

*** [[AdaptationExpansion In the anime]] she got to do it ''again'' and even ''more'' impressively when she fought FREAKIN' PAIN! Unlike in the manga where she gets effectively [[OneHitKill One Hit Killed]] (though she actually survives), in the anime she keeps getting up... and getting up... ''[[TearJerker and getting up...]]''

*** In the ''Advanced Generation'' series this trait was {{Flanderized}} even further. Their inability to recognise any target as too big or too dangerous can be somewhat awe-inspiring. Consider their attempt to catch Kyogre, the Legendary Creator of the Sea:
---->"I hope you have a plan."\\
"Of course I do... we'll catch it in a net!"
