Like A Badass Out Of Hell is being split into new tropes.
* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', the Mane Cast [[spoiler:and their SixthRanger Trixie]] stop at nothing to [[spoiler:defeat Nightmare Whisper, Fluttershy's SuperpoweredEvilSide, and save her from herself. By the end of the battle, Pinkie Pie and Applejack are severely cut up by glass (Pinkie Pie from being throw out of a glass window and Applejack from having glass daggers ''embedded in her back''), Twilight and Rainbow Dash have both been sent dangerously close to the DespairEventHorizon, and Trixie has been electrocuted and broken one or more ribs. But the one who takes the cake is Rarity, who has her legs broken and keeps herself in the fight by ''moving her legs with telekinesis''!]] And ''then'' [[spoiler:Fluttercruel [[LikeABadassOutOfHell fights her way out of]] a JuryOfTheDamned, getting pretty much mauled by demonic creatures, to get back to help save Fluttershy. She then proceeds to tear the tubes connecting her to Nightmare Whisper out '''by hand'', despite the agonizing pain it causes.]]

* ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'': ** Being Superman, Shinji does not know the meaning of the word “quitting”. A giant alien monster whose body is an alternate dimension [[spoiler:has swallowed his LoveInterest and is [[MindRape MindRaping]] her?]] He’ll [[spoiler:dive into Leliel’s body, enter the illusion, convince Asuka to let him into her mind and burn the alien.]] Another giant monster with devastating power is flattening the Geofront and the army is about to blow it up with nukes, killing everybody? He’ll [[spoiler: pick Zeruel, lift it and will take the impact of dozens of nukes.]] An [[spoiler:ancient GodOfEvil has set Third Impact off?]] Shinji’ll [[spoiler:wrestle Instrumentality’s control off Darkseid’s hands and will use that power to ''punch'' him.]] ** Rei does not care about being badly hurt. If she has to fight, she will do: --->''Hearing the commander's voice, she stirred. Her one good eye opened and scanned the room fitfully, unable to focus. She settled her blurry gaze on the fluorescent lights above her head and waited as long as she could for the throbbing in her skull to ebb just a bit. It didn't, but she had to answer. She was driven. It was her purpose, her reason for being. Pain was irrelevant, a signal that her body was damaged, nothing more.''

to:
* ''Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton'': Asuka hates giving up because in her mind it means she is worthless and useless. It did not matter how hard the fight is or Whether she is fighting as a mecha pilot or as ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}''. She grits her teeth and fights on. Sometimes she was tempted to stop being a super-heroine because she thought herself unworthy, but she always returned to fight when she was needed.

Minor cleanup
** Dark World!Derpy. To put this in perspective, she endured ''1000 years'' of living Hell so Discord would remove the curse from Dinky. She marched around Discord's palace, assaulted constantly by crows trying to eat Dinky, and according to [[spoiler:Dinky herself]], she ''never let them touch her]]. And she did this with ''crippled wings and legs''. Is it any wonder at all she becomes an [[SixthRanger Element of Loyalty]]? After she's healed by the redeemed six [[spoiler:and Dinky is restored]], this determination extends to protecting her new friends.

Added DiffLines:
* ''Fanfic/TheOneILoveIs'': At the end of episode 11, when Shinji is at his lowest, Misato explains why he can not and must not give up. Thanks to her words he does not give up and he [[spoiler:keeps fighting during the FinalBattle, even though everything seems lost and he has nothing left, and defeats nine war mechas.]] And because he did not give up, [[spoiler:Asuka survived the battle.]]

Added DiffLines:
* ''Fanfic/{{HERZ}}'': Asuka never stopped fighting, not even when the MP-Evas impaled her robot and she felt the pain of getting chopped into pieces and eaten alive. During that ordeal her heart stopped beating... and then it restarted. She survived, recovered and even managed delivering a healthy child.

* Ga'ri in the early parts of ''FanFic/BigSister'', still trying to recover from [[spoiler: the Gadget Drone incident mentioned in ''[[NanohaStrikerS StrikerS]]'']] carries a baby across a volcanic DeathWorld with what little power she has left, crippling herself ''again'' in the process, then manages to fight off a lethal infection ''and'' regain use of both her legs and her magic, this time ''without'' the help of high-{{Magitek}} rehabilitation facilities.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''/''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}'' {{crossover}}, ''FanFic/SayItThrice'', Betelgeuse certainly qualifies. After fighting against the power of an AmplifierArtifact with his own the entire time that [[spoiler:[[OriginalCharacter Aunt Melinda]] ]] tries to first [[DeaderThanDead exorcise him]] and then bind him to her will, he gets banished back to the Netherworld. The minute he wakes up, he heads into the [[AlternateDimension Ghost Zone]] to find another way to reach Lydia. He finds the [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom portal]] and tries to use it to get out, only to find out [[MagicAIsMagicA it won't work for him]] [[spoiler:without ripping himself apart in the process]]. And he ''still'' only sees this as a delay and intends to figure out another loophole. And when Lydia ends up in danger from [[OriginalCharacter Sandu]][[JackTheRipper leak]], [[spoiler:Betelgeuse [[HeroicRROD goes through the portal anyway]].]]

* In ''{{FanFic/Vapors}}'', in addition to the canonical examples, [[OriginalCharacter Aiko]] is repeatedly held up as an example. Due to her high intelligence and maturity, her apprenticeship instead of being on a genin team, and her past successes, Aiko has been unintentionally conditioned to soldier on through horrible circumstances in pursuit of her goal without asking for help. During her time [[spoiler: infiltrating Root]] she nearly has several breakdowns due to the workload and emotional toll, but continues developing her plan alone for months. Then a new development means that she needs to end things ''right now'', at which point she recruits Sai to help and finishes things in less than a day.

* In ''Fanfic/JustBeforeTheDawn'', this is one of Tercio's defining characteristics, and what brings him to Celestia's attention. No magic, super strength, or flight, just determination and willpower.

* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': ** Before the beginning the story Shinji had stopped hoping for him and Asuka getting together, but he never stopped wanting. His perseverance finally paid off. ** [[spoiler:After being told by his wife that she will not forgive him unless their children and Asuka forgive him first, Gendo]] is determined to earn their forgiveness, not matter what. Even if it seems all but imposible he is determined to do whatever that it takes, and he is willing endure anything. * ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': Rei. Asuka compares her with a ''Film/{{Terminator}}'' because she never stops. Her finest showing in the battle against Zeruel is actually an example of her CharacterDevelopment, where she fights her hardest to defend her friends rather than lack of regard for her own life, never gives up and [[spoiler:thanks to her resolute attitude she manages killing it in spite of horrible odds.]]

to:
* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': One of the key components of Shinji's ideology in this story is keeping hoping and never -ever- giving up. He also instills that way of thinking into Asuka (who refuses to give up and stop fighting, hence she does not try to kill herself during her fall into despair as in canon) and Rei (who endeavours to endure, not matter what). ** During the climax, [[spoiler:Misato dies and he loses hope for first time. Then Asuka gets killed and he gets broken.]] When Rei comes along and tells she can bring them back, Shinji regains hope and he remember that he never, ever, quits. And if [[spoiler:he has to storm the Afterlife to rescue Asuka and Misato, he will do so.]]
