* Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}} is the Marvel personification of heroic spirit and being the main face of the company you gotta make expectations meet, some might say even his [[HeroWithBadPublicity buttmonkey status]] is actually enhancing him to make his detemination powers stronger.

* Basically every main character in ''SinCity'': Hartigan, Marv, Dwight, Wallace... some of the predicaments that these characters find themselves in are flabbergasting, yet they never show more than the slightest notion of fear in their endeavors.

* The graphic novel ''[[ThreeHundred 300]]'' (and really, the real life battle that it it based on) makes a note of showing that all of the 300 Spartans (particularly King Leonidas) are some of the most {{badass}} {{determinator}}s imaginable.

* ''{{Wolverine}}'': Healing factor + PowerCreepPowerSeep + REALLY BAD TEMPER = Pants-wettingly tenacious.

* The GreenLantern Corps is full of Determinators, with Hal Jordan being a big one. Seeing as their rings are fueled by will power, this is probably a given.

* {{ComicBook/Huntress}}, the Helena Bertinelli version, is made of this trope. At one point, the Joker shot her three times in the stomach at point blank range, and she kept coming. Another time, she fought Lady Shiva in hand-to-hand combat, threw her own blood in Shiva's face to blind her, and managed to knock Shiva down. Shiva dubbed her the Iron Owl for this.

After the fight gets cancelled, Shiva dubbed her the Iron Owl "Iron Owl" and asked for this.the honor of helping her to her feet.

* Also, say what you like about Doctor Doom, but his obsessive, all-consuming hatred of Reed Richards never, ever, ''ever'' dies, and he ''will'' keep living, and fighting, and plotting Richards' ultimate and final defeat until one of them is dead. [[ComicBookDeath And even then he will not give up.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Paulie from ''ComicBook/{{Circles}}'' is very determined and tries to get as much done as possible. He wants to live life to the fullest and as a result, [[spoiler:he lived and prospered much longer than other HIV positive patients. He was suffering from aches and pains and kept quiet about it until his conditioned worsened. Even on his deathbed, he fought to stay alive to say his goodbyes to everyone he loves and all who loved him.]]

* ''{{Captain America}}'' defeats superpowered opponents with both his incredible fighting skills... and the fact that he just won't quit!

* The Fabulous Frog-Man is a doughy young man in a frog suit that he doesn't know how to use. But when faced with a villain, no matter how horribly outmatched he may be, he'll never stop bouncing back to give it another go. CaptainAmerica lauds this irrepressible perseverance, but also notes that this can be ''very bad'', saying Frog-Man is the type that makes him fear another [[ComicBook/CivilWar Stamford]].

* Franchise/{{Batman}} in most incarnations. {{Lampshaded}} in an issue of ''ComicBook/SupermanBatman'' where the two heroes are standing in the Mall in Washington D.C., surrounded by an obscene number of supervillains.
-->'''Superman''': They're all around us, you know.\\

to:

* Franchise/{{Batman}} in most incarnations. ''ComicBook/WhateverHappenedToTheCapedCrusader'' portrayed the fact that Batman died in every incarnation because he refused to give up. Ever. It didn't matter if he was saving a little girl or taking on an impossible foe. He would die trying to save people and/or come out on top.

* {{Comicbook/Superman}}. In ''ComicBook/EmperorJoker'', Batman is broken by having himself killed, night after night after night. Only Superman's selfless offer to take those memories (thanks to Mxyzptlk and {{the Spectre}}) enables him to go on. Superman is also seen in the John Byrne reboot boosting the willpower of a group of Green Lanterns' rings. He beat Doomsday after the JLA had been crushed, the story frequently describing him as never giving up.

* So long as something existed to menace Mobius, Sonic from SonicTheComic would ''never'' give up. Best exemplified by the speech he gives to Robotnik when the latter has absorbed the power of the Chaos emeralds to attain [[RealityWarper reality warping powers]], while they're fighting through a series of increasingly bizarre scenarios.
