** {{Jesus}} ''took on the guilt for every sin in cosmic history'' to redeem humanity. In the Garden of Gesthemane, there was a moment where He struggled (because He was still human)--after that He faced death with so much dignity that even the soldiers who came to arrest Him balked twice.

* Lest we forget Heracles. Hera made his life was a living hell because of something that was never his fault (she took her anger out on him because he was the son of her philandering husband) and while some of his heroic deeds were easy (he was able to use his brains to clean the Augean stables in only a day) some of them required NervesOfSteel. When he collected the cattle of Geryon, Hera sent a gadfly to sting them, causing them to scatter; it took him ''a whole year'' to find them all and finish the task. Not to mention, the curses set upon him killed almost all his loved ones, some via his own hands through cursed rage. Still, never once did he consider giving up.

Still, never once did he consider giving up. up and when his time to die came, it was by his clothes (smeared with centaur blood) ''burning his skin'', which he only noticed when pointed out to him, at which point he left the temple he was in, built his own funeral pyre, gave his bow to his friend Philoctetes and with orders to shoot him when he gets to the top and ''climbed it himself.'' No wonder he ascended to godhood.

* Rostam in the Literature/TheShahnameh undertakes seven labors to liberate his king and the Persian army, namely:
** Travels two days distance in one and his horse kills a lion.
** Endures extended dehydration and desert heat.
** Slices a dragon in two, with some help from his horse.
** Slices a seductive witch in two. More of a moral test than a physical one.
** Kills multiple warriors and captures their chieftain.
** Tears off a demon's head with his bare hands.
** Kills a cave-dwelling albino demon in a long and bloody fight.



* Xingtian, a diety from Myth/ChineseMythology, was beheaded after an attempt to overthrow the Supreme Divinity. The guy still kept at it with his rebellion, using his nipples and belly-button as eyes and mouths respectively, and running around with his axe and shield as if nothing happened.

* A staple of NorseMythology. Thor went to ''extreme'' lengths to get back his hammer when it was stolen, and Loki was chained to a rock being tortured by a snake for ''generations'' until he broke free to start Ragnarok. Everyone who dies in Ragnarok, dies in ''battle'' and make sure that when they're dead, they can have their grave stone say "You should've seen the other guy" with an ''arrow pointing to the other guy's tomb stone next to them''.

** When an Immortal wants to go to bed with you, it's neither easy nor safe to say no. It's also a [[ValuesDissonance cultural thing]]; it was fine for Greek men to sleep with other women. Women, not so much.

*** Joseph [[JosephAndTheAmazingTechnicolorDreamcoat (of Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat fame)]], who was [[SiblingRivalry ostracized by his brothers]], thrown naked into a pit ''in the desert'', sold into slavery, had his master's wife try to seduce him, [[WronglyAccused thrown into prison on false charges of attempted rape]], and left to rot in said prison by his buddies who promised to totally put in a good word for him and get him outta there (and promptly forgot all about him). Finally, God used Joseph to solve a problem even the Pharaoh and all the Steves in his IT department couldn't handle, and Joseph became the [[NumberTwo vizier]] of Egypt, second only to the Pharaoh himself, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome saved the known world from a 7-year famine]], ''and'' [[InsaneForgiveness reunited with his brothers that sold him as a slave in the first place]].
