* 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!"

** ''Lysandre''. He'll stop at nothing to achieve his vision of a perfect world. [[spoiler: Even when taking on two Lumiose Conference finalists, eight Gym Leaders, an Elite Four member, a regional Professor, and two regional Champions all at once, he refuses to admit defeat. It takes Zygard Complete Forme to finally take him out, and [[DefiantToTheEnd even as he seemingly dies, he still won't admit he lost]].]]

Let's just get this out of the way -- many anime and manga, especially of the {{Shonen}} and {{Seinen}} variety, have protagonists like this.



* ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'': [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. In one early match against the Oujou White Knights, Hiruma stops playing because he realizes Deimon's chances for victory have reached 0%, although he is willing to keep playing in any other match as long as his team's chances for winning are even marginally greater than nil. In recent chapters, he's gone from being a subversion to almost an embodiment of [[TheDeterminator sheer determinatorism]]: [[spoiler: He plays half a game with a broken arm and apparently heals it in less than a month by willpower alone. Well, willpower and his oxygen tank/segway. Hahahaha.]]

** Also, Rei. He had to kill Yuda, but due his earlier fight with Raoh he was dying in horrible pain. And he soldiered on. But Yuda was still running, so he had Toki treat him in a way that could extend his life for a while... Assuming he survived the horrible pain, ''ten times worse than what he had experienced from Raoh's attack and concentrated in a few minutes''. He survived (even if his hair went white from the pain), and continued fighting, living until he had killed Yuda (and doing so in spite of Yuda ''flooding the town'' to rearrange the battlefield).

** A more awesome example is provided by Pip Bernadotte of the Wild Geese:
*** Pip, while wounded in the stomach, cracks a Vampire Nazi over the head with a rifle butt, shoots them (ineffecively) with a pistol several times, then fires smoke grenades for cover, picks up Seras and carries her down the hall while having his legs shot at, whilst he's losing blood from the wound in his stomach, and doesn't stop until Zorin Blitz throws her scythe at him and impales him on it.

*** [[spoiler: And even that is not enough. After his defeat against Naruto and returning to his old self after a talk with Naruto, Kakashi and Minato, [[VillainOverride Black Zetsu possesses him and forces him to revive Madara]], and then makes Obito fight against Kakashi and Minato while slowly and painfully dying, [[DarkestHour while Madara extracts the Kyuubi from Naruto, stabs Sasuke in the heart, and becomes the Jubi Jinchuriki.]] What does Obito do? He overpowers Black Zetsu and uses him as life support, then proceeds to [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice shove his hand into Madara's chest]] and absorb some of the chakra. He then, along with Kakashi, uses both his Sharingan to teleport both Naruto, Sakura, and himself to the space-time dimension, where he gives Naruto the chakra and thereby effectively saves his life. This guy is, unarguably, THE Determinator of the manga.]]

** [[FanofUnderdog Hinata]] is one of the first people to adopt Naruto's ninja way. Knowing that he's watching, she refuses to give up against Neji despite severe injuries, [[spoiler: even standing up one last time after the referee ends the match to keep her from getting ''killed''.]]

** [[CuteBruiser Sakura]], in her fight against [[MarionetteMaster Sasori]], gets out of a cloud of poison gas by [[spoiler: detonating a ''bomb'' against herself to blow away the gas.]] This entire battle is Determinator moment after Determinator moment for her, including a scene near the end where she [[spoiler: stays standing and continues healing herself while a poisoned sword is completely impaling her, and even tries to insist that Chiyo use the last antidote on herself instead of helping her.]]

** [[FanofUnderdog Hinata]] [[{{Deuteragonist}} Sasuke Uchiha]] is one as a part of the first people to adopt his role as Naruto's ninja way. Knowing {{Foil}}. While it's not as overstated as his rival's, Sasuke takes an insane amount of punishment in many of his battles and just keeps going. Making it even more impressive is that he doesn't have a bijuu sealed inside of him to augment his stamina. The best example of this is probably when he fights through four kages, kills Danzo, and then, while near-blind due to Mangekyo overuse, fights Kakashi to a standstill, and then still has enough energy left to clash with Naruto one last time before he leaves the battlefield. [[spoiler:Later, during the battle against Madara, even after he is run through on his own sword, he keeps trying to get up, despite the fact that he's watching, she refuses to give up against Neji despite severe injuries, [[spoiler: even standing up one last time after the referee ends the match to keep her from getting ''killed''.dying.]]

** Rock Lee sometimes out-Narutos even Naruto, once assuming a fighting stance even though nearly all the major muscle groups in his body were torn and his left forearm and leg had been completely shattered. While ''unconscious'', presumably from the pain. In his next battle, he breaks out of the hospital [[spoiler:immediately after massive reconstructive surgery]] to [[BigDamnHeroes save]] [[IdiotHero Naruto]] from getting into a HopelessBossFight with [[SuperSoldier Kimimaro]].
** During his match against Gaara, his mentor was shown telling him in a flashback that his perseverance is what makes him a genius. This is echoed by Kakashi when he sees Lee pull off a DangerousForbiddenTechnique through sheer effort alone.
** Taken to extremes in the Sasuke Retrieval Arc, where no less than ''five'' characters pull a Naruto. Even BrilliantButLazy Shikamaru [[spoiler:breaks his own finger to dispel an illusion]].
** In the same arc, Kimimaro [[spoiler:[[WhyWontYouDie Just Won't Die]]. First, he somehow survives being crushed inside a ton-sized ball of sand (which splatters almost everyone it hits like a bug on a windshield) and keeps fighting. Then after being crushed a second time under a ''desert's worth'' of sand, he wills himself to life long enough to almost kill his opponents with one last attack.]] Oh, and he did all of this while suffering from a [[IncurableCoughOfDeath disease]] that was on the verge of killing him. Note that it was even stated that he was literally moving on willpower alone.
** Jiraiya. [[spoiler:He brings himself back to life by ''willpower alone'' long enough to give Naruto one last clue to defeating Pain.]]
** Ironically, "GIVE UP TRYING TO MAKE ME GIVE UP!" was originally [[spoiler:Nagato/Pain's]] line. And it probably inspired this line in the book Naruto got it from.
** The Raikage. [[spoiler: When confronted by Sasuke's incomplete Susano'o ultimate defense, coated by Amaterasu's unquenchable flames, the Raikage ''punches through it anyway'', sacrificing his dominant arm in order to hit Sasuke. A later move would have done the same thing to his leg, but Gaara stops him from turning himself into [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail The Black Knight]]. And losing the arm doesn't seem to have slowed him down a bit since then.]]
** Danzo. [[spoiler: Despite all these years, he never gave up on becoming Hokage, and he is utterly determined to kill Sasuke, even going as far as to use one last TakingYouWithMe attack on him (That didn't work.)]]
** Orochimaru, due to his obsession with immortality. By the end of Sasuke's arc, [[spoiler:wasn't he killed about three times? And he was significantly weaker than he used to be in his fight against Sasuke, who admits to that being the reason for his victory.]]
*** Sasuke's arc ended with Orochimaru killed in a definitive way by [[spoiler: Itachi. Orochimaru ''returned from that''. Granted, he needed help this time, but he still returned.]]
** Ironically, the BigBad Tobi[[spoiler:/Obito]] has shown to be the biggest determinator in the series. Nothing, absolutely nothing '''will''' stop him. [[spoiler:The destruction of his organization; the five great shinobi nations, the immortal zombie Hokages, AllLovingHero and his ''own'' eye battling him at the same time and beating him to an inch of his life or even Madara betraying him and robbing him of his life support. He will simply get up and keep going]].
*** [[spoiler: Losing half of his body at age 13 only slowed him. So far he has been: struck with a fully powered Rasengan from the Fourth Hokage, poisoned with microscopic insects, set on eternal fire from Itachi, hit by 600 billion bombs from [[DarkActionGirl Konan]] blowing up at his face, [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice pierced in the heart]] by a [[ShockAndAwe Raikiri enhanced kunai]] from [[BadassTeacher Kakashi]], [[VillainOverride taken over by his]] EvilMentor, [[TheDreaded Madara Uchiha]], through the plant side and cut from shoulder to waist by the revived Fourth Hokage a second later. Once he becomes the Jubi's Jinchuuriki this is taken UpToEleven as he takes a dozen mountain size gate seals from the First Hokage (a.k.a. God of Shinobi) dropped at his head at supersonic velocity before blowing them up with just raw strength]]. [[spoiler: Not even the might of the Jubi ripping his mind apart gave him pause; he subdued it by the clinging to his love of Rin and the desire to recover his former team. Bonus points for doing with his own [[DeterMinator willpower]] what took Naruto help from his parents to subdue a weaker Bijuu.]]

** Most people who carry the "Will of the D." would probably qualify as Determinators as well (or is it "D.terminators"?).

** Niz holds "persistence" as his core tenet, and manages to impress the local {{Badass}}, Sechs, enough to learn what she can from his philosophy. Considering that Sechs had much more combat experience, was more physically capable, was kicking his ass for most of the fight, and on top of that was notorious for ignoring anything apart from a straight-on berserker assault, the mere fact that Niz made such an impression on her was pretty amazing. Then again, remaining standing and not crying or grimacing in pain after your arm, artificial heart, and half of your chest is blown away would probably have an impact on whoever you were fighting.
