* Alice, originating from ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'' when it comes to completing her mission. In Barber's "Convergence" she murders an entire station of people while looking for the Allspark, and it's implied that this may not be the first time she's done something like this. She also gets [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat hit by a car and reduced to pieces]] in the movie, only to be revealed to be very much still be ticking in the IDW comics. It takes a blade through the chest by ''Sideswipe'' after she [[BullyingADragon tried to ram a NEST blockade]] with a vehicle containing human hostages, to finally take her out of commission.

* Garcia from the SyFy movie ''Film/{{Yeti}}''. Survives a plane crash, travels out into the wild to find the spare radio in the other end of the plane. Breaks his legs running from a yeti, splints the leg with the severed arm of his body, gets chased all the way back to the plane, dragging the radio with him, shot in the eye with a FlareGun when the {{jerkass}} of the movie panics and thinks he's the yeti, and wakes up at the end of the movie to see one of the yetis' arms popping out of the snow. And the movie started with his coach telling him that he "needed to show more heart"

* Po from ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' stuck around with Master [=ShiFu=] despite TrainingFromHell that was specially designed to drive him out of the temple. And he was an unfit panda with next to no kung fu training who was undergoing stuff that kung fu masters many times his level did. Not to mention the fact that he was once kicked off the temple and had to climb up a few thousand steps to return. [[spoiler: He TookALevelInBadass when his natural kung fu abilities were discovered.]]

** Also Gollum, who made pretty much the same journey but under arguably worse conditions.

** If none of his post-procedure feats do anything for you, having this [[https://cap-chronism.dreamwidth.org/6115.html?thread=30435 veritable laundry list]] of ailments during TheGreatDepression, a time when employment was hardly guaranteed and most of these conditions had no effective or affordable cure yet, certainly will. Steve, the shrimpy dork from Brooklyn, had to be a supreme Determinator ''just to live long enough to be Captain America''.

* Richie from ''Film/MarsAttacks''. Not wind, not rain and certainly not an invasion with a few million hostile aliens from Mars is gonna stop that boy from getting to the retirement home to save his grandma. Extra points for being pretty much like Luigi from ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'': he is scared, has no real way to defend himself, but while it sometimes slows him down, he never, ''ever'' stops on his way.
