** Galuf from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' does it too. Exdeath has the party held down with the Crystals, and when Galuf's granddaughter Krile [[BigDamnHeroes swoops in and interrupts Exdeath]] ''yet again,'' he traps her in a ''[[JohnnyCash burning ring]] [[IncrediblyLamePun of fire]]'' and slams her across the room a few times. All seems lost... [[spoiler:until Galuf gets up, powers through the Crystal's force beam despite the fact that he'll make it shatter in doing so, goes into the ring of flame to rescue Krile, then, while [[TurnsRed aflame in more ways than one,]] charges at Exdeath and starts to [[TakingYouWithMe go out fighting.]] Galuf's HP slowly decreases throughout the battle, but [[NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow he won't stop kicking even at 0]] - not even after ''[[NoOneCouldSurviveThat being hit with successive use of]] [[WhyWontYouDie the universe's three most powerful spells.]]'' Once Exdeath is defeated, though, Galuf finally collapses, and [[DeaderThanDead all the items and magic in the world won't bring him back.]]]]

* This character archetype gets {{deconstructed|CharacterArchetype}} in ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine''. Captain Walker's single-minded drive to continue his mission is the reason that [[spoiler:a civilian refugee camp gets horrifically massacred with white phosphorus, the better part of the 33rd Infantry gets killed, both of his squadmates Lugo and Adams wind up dead, and the city of Dubai is condemned to death by dehydration due to the water supply getting destroyed]]. This isn't helped by [[spoiler:Walker going insane with intense self-loathing and a need to blame anybody and anything other than himself for things getting worse]]. Sometimes when people tell you to stop, it's better if you actually listen.

** Talking about the Purple Man, [[spoiler: he has been killing children since (maybe) 1973 until finally dying in 1993. But even that didn't stop him, as he's the ''main antagonist'' and only real threat in the third game. ''Which likely takes place in '''2023'''.''

* In ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'', the world has gone to hell in a handbasket. [[StupidJetpackHitler The Nazis used mad super-science]] to {{curbstomp|battle}} the Allies into defeat in 1946, and have spent the past fourteen years establishing control over the rest of the world. The only exception to this is a newspaper cutting which implies that the French Resistance are ''still'' fighting on even through twenty years of occupation and are no closer to giving up than they were in 1940.

** ''Original Generations'' mellows Axel's Determinator personality a little, but he's still intent on stopping Kyosuke. Though he just uses another reason. [[spoiler:And when he's BackFromTheDead in OG Gaiden and had a HeelFaceTurn, he seems to completely lose his Determinator status... until the EndlessFrontier EXCEED where it shows once again: Despite Alfimi telling him to just leave her of getting sucked to a portal along with some slime-like giant monster, and the Soulgain is damaged, Axel will have none of that since he already made up his mind about [[IOweYouMyLife repaying how Alfimi got him revived]]. He picks up a blade tonfa and make a jump to save Alfimi (on foot, not with his mecha), assisted with Kouta/Fighter Roar.]]
*** Also shown in OG Gaiden is probably [[spoiler:his method of saving Lamia. Everyone else, even Kyosuke, just seems to be ready to just give up and accept in despair that Lamia will die. Axel? Tells everyone to shut up and just use his dangerous gamble of using Code DTD as a method to restore her, which by the way, has the side effect of any minor misstep will cost her memory. The result is that she is saved. When Axel got into the same situation with sister unit [[EndlessFrontier Aschen]], not to mention he was being amnesiac at that time, he's still insisting on using it ''anyway'' and succeeds.]]

** Not only that, but the protagonist also [[spoiler:hangs onto life for two months after that, continuing on nothing but willpower in order to keep the promise the main characters made to meet on the roof of the school on graduation day as proof of everything they went through together]].

* Asura from AsurasWrath is possibly the most [[SerialEscalation over the top]] of the examples shown so far. The trailers and gameply demo have seen him get ''impaled by alot of spears and [[TheJuggernaut shrugging them off as if they were nothing]]'', knockoff a demi god that grew in size to about [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever Five stories tall]] even after being bashed into the ground, then said demi god grows to size where he ''dwarfs the fucking planet'' and send his finger (which alone makes every boss from every game ever look absolutely puny in comperison) down to crash him. Asura ''STOPS'' the finger with his bare FUCKING hands! (All six off them, yes he grew another two pairs of arms, roll with it), THEN he destroys the demigod by doing what basicly amounts to ''punching it's finger alot''.

* Takeshi in ''{{Ever17}}'' comes down with Tief Blau, hasn't eaten in over a day, has been running around constantly when not passed out, is coughing up blood and suffers some really nasty decompression sickness right after being slammed into a wall. Then he swims through frigid, lightless water to rescue his love interest, swims back still without having rested and finally escapes. Then he's jettisoned out of a submarine to save his love interest again and sits on the ocean floor for a while, having drowned. [[spoiler:And then a disembodied time traveler wakes him up, at which point he swims through the bottom of the ocean back into IBF, saves Coco and still lives to the story's True End. Oh, and he was dead/frozen on the ocean floor for at least long enough for a small robotic dog to swim down and recover the disc he was carrying. Three hundred feet down.]]
