* Derek Jeter became a New York Yankees living legend because of this. Offensively, he was known and praised for being able to make that clutch hit when the game was on the line. There were many games where Jeter did poorly at the plate, until a crucial hit was needed. During those moments, it didn't matter how good the pitcher was he always found the right pitch to hit. He always found a way to perform big when it mattered, and many of those hits were the reason the 90s Yankees Dynasty was possible. Defensively, he was praised for making some of the biggest run saving plays in league history, including plays where he sacrificed his own body and sustained injuries, just to get an out.

* Azusa Hayano, a Japanese geologist working in the Aokigahara Forest, better known as "suicide forest" due to the enormous rates of suicides that happen in these unnaturally dense woods. Despite having personally discovered over a hundred corpses in his 30 years of work there, he never stopped doing his job and trying to dissuade people he met there of taking their own life.



* You. The average human being will go through emotional pain, from the heartbreak of betrayal to the agony of losing a loved one, physical trauma, be it a debilitating disease or a horrendous injury, and sometimes even torture; see any cases of child abuse, big or small. Chances are ''you'' have at some point gone through at least one of these horrific occurrences, and yet here you read, my friend. We are one of the few species who can feel a colossal range of emotion, a species who regularly fill our environment with hundreds of thousands of tonnes of speeding steel and iron, not to mention our passion for killing each other, and we '''[[HumansAreSurvivors keep]] [[LastStand on going]]'''.

* Creator/GeorgeMiller: In 1998 he thought up an idea for a fourth ''Film/MadMax'' movie and spent the next 17 years trying to get it made and released. Initially meant to be shot in Australia in 2001, production was pushed back due to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. After that, Creator/MelGibson, the star of the previous three ''Mad Max'' movies dropped out of the project. Miller, still committed to seeing the film made, pushed production back to 2003, but was delayed again thanks to a heavy Australian rainfall making everything too green. Production moved to Nambia but got further delayed thanks to due problems coming from the Iraq War. After having numerous actors pegged to play Max, including Creator/HeathLedger before his untimely death in 2008, Creator/TomHardy was finally cast and production began in 2012, a very TroubledProduction. Shooting went for months, going overschedule and overbudget to the point that Warner Brothers nearly took more control of the filming and the location was miserable for almost everyone on set. Tom Hardy himself did not get along very well with Miller, nor his costar, Creator/CharlizeTheron. With filming finally complete, it entered post-production, where it stayed for nearly two years experiencing more delays. After all of that, George Miller finally saw ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' released in 2015, where it smashed OutOfTheGhetto and ended up being the most critically acclaimed film of the year.

* Also, tardigrades. Dehydrate them and they'll curl up into a small shape called the "Tun state". Then you can chill 'em, zap 'em, stick 'em in the ''hard fucking vacuum of outer fucking space''... and after you rehydrate them, they'll just uncurl from their Tun state and say "I'm still alive, motherfucker!" For example, the European Space Agency decided to stress-test these half-a-millimeter-long water bears by, and I kid you not, virtually spacing the "poor, helpless creatures" by opening the airlock they were in! 2/3 of them survived, came down to Earth, and the pregnant females gave birth to viable embryos. The experiment was called "Tardigrades In Space". Sound not clever at all? Let me rephrase that. "''TARD''igrades ''I''n ''S''pace." That's right - they abbreviated it as ''TARDIS''.

* Boars. They do not care if you have a gun, they do not care how much bigger you are than them, they do not care ''if you have shot them!'' They will charge at you and try to kill you, and possibly your dog, no matter what! There is a reason why boar hunting is often considered a test of bravery.

* In stage races in cycling, combativity awards are fairly common, with the stage award usually being to the attacker who worked the hardest to stay ahead, or to someone who's been in an accident and fought to stay in the race or do well. For a stage race, the award is usually given for the former, or a combination of the two factors.

* Pick any African-American who's broken the color barrier in any field, be it business, the military, sports, whatever. We're talking real men and women who've taken abuse that would reduce whole platoons of Marines to tears. Famous examples: The Navy's first Black Master Diver Carl Brasher, as portrayed in ''Film/MenOfHonor'', UsefulNotes/MalcolmX, and most obviously Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

* All of Music/{{EXO}} count, especially former member [[Creator/KrisWu Kris]]. He'd often practice basketball until 4:00 am alone, long after everyone else had gone home while he was living in Canada. Despite being born in Canada and very close to his mother, he spent five years training in Korea under S.M. Entertainment alone at 16, which is grueling enough, with little to no prior knowledge of the language, and having to deal with racism and bullying from other trainees, along with intense homesickness on top of that. Eventually, he was chosen as EXO-M's leader because of his strong will and responsible nature, and can speak 4 languages fluently. As of May 2014, he'd filed a lawsuit against a very influential, and entertainment company, SM, despite allegedly being deathly ill from overwork. He'd quickly moved onto filming in China, among various charity events, and is practically TheAce of Chinese actors at only 24. And he seems to be accomplishing far more with less than a year on his own than he did seven years under SM, underscoring his incredible work ethic and passion for his career. Many C-netizens and people in the acting industry who are [[BaseBreaker supportive]] of his career in China talk about how he's unusually strong-willed and hardworking for his age.
