* Creator/HenrikIbsen had more than one determinator in his plays. The most awesome example is [[Theatre/PeerGynt Solveig]]. When she decided that Peer Gynt was worth it, she gave up her former life, went to find him in the mountains, where he had to live the life of an {{outlaw}}. When he suddenly bailed out of her life, she decided to wait until he came back. He did so after ''more than fourty years'', only to collapse in her arms, presumably dying. The sheer awesomeness of it is underlined by the fact that she states he gave her life meaning.

* JohnAdams in ''Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix''. At the start of the play, he's proposed independence twenty-three times despite the fact that it's always shut down even before debate. He wavers after the Southern walkout, but Abby's reminder of his beliefs and her timely gift of [[ChekhovsGun saltpeter]] gets him back downstairs and badgering his stricken colleagues to whip some votes. And the ElevenOClockNumber number he sings right after has him reaffirming that ''he will not give up'' on independence.

* ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberofFleetStreet'': SweeneyTodd, in his Sondheim incarnation. Survives fifteen years in a penal colony, escapes, flees to the coast, builds himself a ''fucking raft'' and tries to sail to London from Australia. Of course, he gets picked up by Anthony and the good ship ''Bountiful'' en route, but still...

** In ''Theatre/{{Electra}}'', the main character ''will not'' give up mourning her father until he's avenged, ''will not'' act like a woman and accept her place, and ''will not'' submit to her Aegisthus' and Clytemnestra's abuse. When she loses all hope of salvation (thinking Orestes is dead) and has been told of her parents plans to [[SealedRoomInTheMiddleOfNowhere seal her in a cave]] to die, she decides to try and kill Aegisthus herself, in spite of being a woman.

** Just to underline the above: Oscar Wilde was sentenced to two years' hard labour, and was told that he'd be lucky if he survived eighteen months. Sweeney must have been a terminator in human form to survive ''fifteen years'', and have enough strength to escape successfully.
