* Richard Kimble in ''Film/TheFugitive''. Lampshaded a couple of times.
-->'''[[spoiler: Dr. Nichols]]''': You never give up, Richard, do you? You ''NEVER GIVE UP!!!''
** Deputy Gerard has shades of this too, which makes them excellent foils.
-->'''Gerard''': That's ''my'' man!
-->'''Rosetti''': Not any more he's not. He's going down. You can help by staying out.
-->'''Gerard''': ...Arrest us. ''(proceeds to take the building)''

* Aguirre in ''Film/AguirreTheWrathOfGod'', who carries this out as tragically as can be imagined. A rather common trope in Creator/WernerHerzog's films, to the point that the {{Mockumentary}} ''Incident At Loch Ness'' parodied this, with Herzog himself cast in this role as a director determined to complete a [[TroubledProduction disastrous film production]].

** WesternAnimation/WallE. [[TheWoobie Sweet baby Jesus,]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome goddamned]] [[TearJerker WALL•E]]. Didn't give on on winning Eve's heart (and ours), [[spoiler:[[HeroicSacrifice and gave everything to save humans from an]] [[AIIsACrapshoot insane, demented, or just plain evil autopilot]]]]. He's been [[spoiler:electrocuted]], [[spoiler:dropped into a trash compactor]], and finally [[spoiler:crushed to death in one of the most literal displays of ButtonMashing known to man]]. Surviving on the seemingly barren wasteland formerly known as earth for seven-hundred years is no small feat either, even if you ''are'' a robot.

* The protagonist of the 2007 remake of ''Film/ThreeTenToYuma'' certainly doesn't KnowWhenToFoldEm, and it's [[HonorBeforeReason not even about the money]]. No one (maybe even not he himself) knows why he's so determined to keep going until the end, though one reason is to make his son proud of him. He wins everyone over by sheer amazement about his stubborn determination. Not that that's enough to save the day, but pretty close.

** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'':\\\
Kitty, who must keep the link open, is at one point stabbed by Logan when his present body reacts violently to mental trauma in the past. And due to how time runs concurrently in the past and present, it's implied that it takes a few days before Logan and co. can properly stop Mystique, which means that she is slowly bleeding out and can't sleep for that period.\\\
Same goes for Mystique, who throughout the film finds more and more damning evidence that Trask really needs to be killed. [[spoiler:It's not until the very end that Charles manages to talk her out of it.]]\\\
The Prototype Sentinel that [[spoiler:goes after Magneto definitely is this. Even as it's being torn to pieces, it still tries to grab him.]]
