** 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.]]

** Special mention goes to Ms. Pauling in the comics. The entire RED team is getting thrashed by a giant bread monster? Build a time-bomb out of a handy payload cart and Scout's timer! Mann Co. has been taken over by a man bent on finding every last bar of Australium in the world just so he can live forever? Put the entire team back together one by one. Not to mention her resolve to stand by The Administrator's side, even when Gray tells her that whatever she's planning will be worse than his scheming.

* Jon Irenicus of ''[[BaldursGate Shadows of Amn]]'' has one thing on his mind: the power he was denied when the Seldarine prevented him from becoming a god. If he has to rip the souls from living men and women, temporarily surrender to the authorities just so their guard is down and he can break out, work with thieves and vampires, make pacts with sworn foes of his people, pretend to be a humble servant, slaughter his kin or destroy entire cities to attain it, he will. You have to fight him no less than three times in the game, killing him ''twice''. And after all that, after following him to ''Hell'' and kicking his astral butt there, the ending {{cutscene}} shows his soul incarnating ''again'' and attempting to fight off a horde of gibbering demons with his bare hands.
** Sarevok, the BigBad from the first game. He appears in the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon in ''Shadows of Amn'', and after dying ''there'' he appears to the player in ''Throne Of Bhaal'', the final installment, having pulled himself back into a ghostly existence through sheer willpower in order to bargain his (vital) knowledge for the piece of the player's soul he needs to resurrect himself.

** The 2016 game adds to this. Background details suggest that the Marine is the one from an earlier game, hinting at the endings to both Doom 2 and Doom 64 via BroadStrokes, having occurred in the distant past or possibly AnotherDimension. The Marine basically spent an unknown amount of time wreaking havoc across Hell, and all the demons could manage was to bring a temple down onto him, carving the rock into a sarcophagus to keep him sealed. Then once things go haywire, the SealedBadassInACan gets opened and his first action is to maul the first enemy that gets in arms reach.

* Apparently, in ''PrincessWaltz'', {{Badass}} and {{Determinator}} go hand in hand. This is even {{lampshaded}}.

* ''VideoGame/CliveBarkersUndying'': Let's face it: Patrick pretty much IS this trope. Let's see here: Survive WorldWarOne? Check. Survive at least decades of conflict with Otto Keisinger? Check. Get through Irish customs unnoticed in order to fulfill a life debt? Check. Fight through wave after wave of unspeakable abominations that have racked up quite the kill count? Check. Handle the ArtifactOfDoom with fairly marginal damage? Check. Kill off the undead and superhuman Covenant siblings one by one? Check. Go into HELL to defeat Keisinger? Check. Survive [[spoiler: Jeremiah]]'s betrayal? Check. Take down the [[spoiler: EldritchAbomination]] that helped cause this godforsaken train wreck in the first place? Check. Basically, by the end, he is pretty much surviving more-or-less because it seems like he can't bloody DIE.

** The Dunmer of Morrowind, and particularly those of House Redoran and House Indoril, are known for this attitude. When the Tribunal made peace with the Empire, many Indoril nobles killed themselves rather than suffer the indignity, and House Redoran managed to hold out north of Mournhold against the Hist-powered Argonian army of the An-Xileel even after their living gods died/vanished and a falling moon destroyed half their province. Even simply surviving in Morrowind probably qualifies them.

** [[HeroAntagonist Undyne]], leader of the royal guard, staunchly refuses to die if you kill her. [[spoiler:She still dies... [[CameBackStrong unless you're doing a genocide run]]]] In fact, she's the only monster you cannot spare, because she's so determined to kill you that she'll fight to the death. [[spoiler:To let her live, you have to run instead.]] Notably, [[spoiler: Undyne is the ''only'' Monster that's able to produce her own determination through sheer force of will. Its how she becomes "Undyne the Undying", that said she'll eventually start melting just like any other Monster filled with determination because their bodies aren't physical matter and thus, can't handle it.]]
