* ''[[Animation/TheMindsEye Odyssey Into the Mind's Eye]]'' sequence "Unstoppable" features two characters behaving like this: the scientist/evil-looking dude with a facility full of traps trying to stop a small, sliver block-like creature and, even moreso the Determinator, the silver block crashing through ''everything'' to get away. Doesn't matter if it's a descending ceiling full of rotating blades or a metal wall backed by solid rock, the block keeps flying through it all like its made of tissue paper.

** A prime example would be the comic, ''ComicBook/GodzillaInHell''; [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Godzilla gets trapped in Hell]] and has to find his way out. Facing him are the legions of Hell, eternal damnation, and increasing impossible challenges as he travels deeper and deeper into the circles of Hell. But as Hell and its denizens soon find, nothing will stop Godzilla from his goal.

* Judy Hopps, the RighteousRabbit star of ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''. Fighting a bully who's twice her size? Training to become a cop despite everyone telling her it's impossible? Taking on a case that her more experienced colleagues have failed to solve? Whatever the goal, once Judy decides to take action, nothing can stand in her way. She means it when she says she doesn't know when to quit.

* Rocky Balboa of the ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' films, as summed up in this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uASVzkrEKgs speech to his son]]. His claim to fame is surviving a full 15 rounds against an established professional boxer, [[SecondPlaceIsForWinners even though he lost]].

* It's hardly a surprise when [[spoiler:Begbie is arrested]] at the end of ''Film/{{Trainspotting}}''. At the start of ''[[Film/{{T2Trainspotting}} T2 Trainspotting]]'' he's been [[spoiler:sitting in prison for 20 years, nursing a grudge against Renton]]. He's quite willing to [[spoiler:go back inside]] if that's the price of revenge.

** Given the hellhole of a future he lived in, Reese himself must have been one to survive. Also, Sarah embraces her inner {{Determinator}} in the climax of the first movie, and practically ''becomes'' a Terminator in ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'', to the point she's halfway to shooting a defenceless, wounded man in front of his wife and children for something he ''hasn't actually done yet''. Even after that, she's still perfectly capable of firing a 12-gauge shotgun repeatedly after minutes earlier having an inch-thick metal spike rammed straight through her shoulder. In fact, if she hadn't run out of ammo, she would have destroyed the T-1000 herself, without the T-101's help. Even more so in ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles''.

* 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.
