*** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E11HeavenSent Heaven Sent]], the Doctor spends ''two billion years'' [[PunchAWall punching a hole]] into a 20 feet thick wall made of [[FantasyMetals space diamond]] with nothing but his fists.

to:

*** In ''Let's Kill Hitler'', the Doctor is literally dying and in pain but manages to act incredibly normal (for him) at least until the last 5 or so minutes, even taking the time to change. He also focuses all his energy on saving Amy and Rory, even when he is in such pain he is unable to move.
*** The Doctor spends almost a thousand years, in what he believes to be his final incarnation, defending a town on the planet Christmas - and, by extension, the Time Lords - from pretty much every enemy he's ever had.
*** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E11HeavenSent Heaven Sent]], the Doctor spends ''two ''four and a half billion years'' [[PunchAWall punching a hole]] into a 20 feet thick wall made of [[FantasyMetals space diamond]] with nothing but his fists.fists. It is revealed later that [[spoiler: he could have left at any time by giving up his knowledge about the Hybrid, but chose to stay as part of a gambit to save Clara. After he escapes the torture chamber, he is willing to cost the General a regeneration and even break the rules of time itself to keep her safe.
*** The fact that the Doctor has endured over for over 2000 years, half of that in war, and has lost almost everyone he's ever cared about but remains optimistic and compassionate is a testament to his amazing willpower.

* ''Series/Gotham'': James Gordon, has shown qualities of this on multiple occasions but one that stands out is where he [[spoiler: gets beaten bloody and knocked unconscious]] but upon waking up his first act is to reach for his gun and head to [[spoiler: the police station]], where he had been informed of trouble, instead of seeking medical assistance for his injuries

* Gibbs from ''Series/{{NCIS}}''. [[AlwaysGetsHisMan He ''will'' get his man, no matter what]]. Shoot him? That'll heal. Hit him with a car? Ditto? Threaten his job? [[UltimateJobSecurity You can't]], and he doesn't care anyway. Blow him up? Been there, done that. Twice. Legal protection? [[CowboyCop screw that]]. the list goes on and on [[OverlyLongGag and on and...]]

* ''Series/TheKnick'': Dr. Algernon Edwards is a highly educated surgeon, and has experience working with some of the finest doctors in Europe. None of that really matters, though, in 1900 New York City, where the only thing people see is the color of his skin. Nevertheless, he's determined to make it as a surgeon in a white man's profession and an otherwise all-white hospital, and despite the personal disdain of most of the staff. Why, you ask? Because his superior, [[Creator/CliveOwen Dr. John Thackery]] is something of a mad genius, and Edwards intends to learn everything he knows.

* Charlie Crews from {{Life}}. As a cop that's been sent to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pelican_Bay_State_Prison Pelican Bay]] - a federal maximum security prison - which houses Level IV criminals and some of the world's most notorious prison gangs, he pretty much got targeted for all kinds of hell and abuse imaginable. For the first few years of his incarceration, he spent more time in the prison infirmary than in gen pop because they kept breaking every bone in his body. One time, they cut him up so bad he had to get 241 stitches. That's not even taking into account the beatings he received from the [=COs=]. Aside from the physical and mental abuse that's already been heaped on him, he also got sent to the SHU for a few years and that knocked quite a few screws loose from his head. He then decides that he's had enough so when he gets back to gen pop, well... Let's just say the inmates get introduced to a ''whole new Charlie Crews''. He's finally let out from prison when, after 12 years, he gets exonerated. He proceeds to win a $50 million lawsuit against the city, gets back on the job as a detective despite the universal suspicion he receives from the LAPD, [[spoiler: ''tracks down the murderer he served the sentence for, and (after deciding not kill the guy) brings him in and puts him behind bars''.]]

* This trait is very common for ''Series/ForgedInFire'' contestants. Several of then keep powering on after severe setbacks and manage to turn in finished work, and one guy managed to work through ''severe pain'' caused by arthritis. Doing this also tends to impress the judges.

* ''Series/StreetJustice'': Adam kept up his search for Grady for 20 years, even putting a good portion of his police-detective salary toward hiring private detectives to find any trace of his former friend.

* It shouldn't be too terribly shocking, considering what she is, but Cameron of ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'' is pretty darn tough. Little things like getting caught in a massive car bombing don't do much more than give her a limp for a bit.
