* ''NoMoreHeroes 2'' has this as a game mechanic as well: After your HP is reduced to zero, you get a window of opportunity to furiously shake the wiimote until Travis recovers and gets back a couple units of health. This can even be done a few times per section (which you'll definitely need against certain bosses, and even moreso on Bitter Mode.)

** Exemplified In the final boss of the Pacifist Run. [[spoiler: You can't be defeated, because everytime your heart breaks, he is put back together through sheer will force]]. In the very last move of the battle, he will try to shoot you with a gigantic laser, your HP will go down to 0,0000000000000000001, but it won't reach 0.

*By the end of ''Earth Defense Force 2025'', the EDF is basically defeated. Their HQ has been found and destroyed multiple times, most of the planet is trapped beneath World Eaters, and they've already issued instructions to the civilian populace to begin a guerrilla fight against the Ravagers. The player's squad, which has been fighting through increasingly insurmountable odds as the game progresses, is part of the EDF's final, desperate assault on the 'Brain' controlling the invasion. As the attack fails and the last hope of the planet fades, the squad's status as a group of Determinators is revealed and immediately [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]]: -->'''Tactics:''' Attack units almost destroyed. -->'''HQ:''' We couldn't match their strength... --> '''Tactics:''' No, not yet. Someone is still fighting. It's the Storm Team! -->'''HQ:''' Are they immortal or something?

* [AlwaysSaveTheGirl Sissel] and [[spoiler:Missile both qualify. The latter especially, as his alternate timeline self decides to wait 10 years in order to [[TheChessmaster set the plot into motion]] and save his beloved Kamila and Lynne.

* The entire Ur-Quan race in ''StarControl II''. [[spoiler:After being forced to conquer the known universe and kill their only friends by their telepathic masters, an Ur-Quan scientist discovered that intense pain causes the telepathic link to shut down, supposedly to prevent their enslavers from experiencing discomfort. He (it?) proceeds to drink enough caustic acid to ensure its own agonizing death and takes the few seconds it bought with its life to broadcast its findings to all the Ur-Quan in range. The self-mutilation that followed bought the Ur-Quan time to develop a device that provided its user with constant border-line unbearable pain without inflicting physical damage. They proceeded to fight an entire interstellar war, constantly in throes of agony. No wonder they want to enslave/destroy the universe.]]

* The animatronics of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' will never, ever stop coming after you. Even in ''2,'' when they've been half-dismantled and, by all rights, shouldn't be able to function at all, they keep coming. [[spoiler:As it turns out, ''[[UpToEleven dying twice]]'' didn't even stop [[BiggerBad the]] [[PurpleIsPowerful Purple]] [[SerialKiller Man's]] victims from [[KarmicDeath killing]] [[DeathByIrony him.]]]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is a massive {{Deconstruction}} and examination of the concept of determination, among other things. The save points throughout the game are points where the protagonist finds something that fills them with determination. [[spoiler: This determination allows the player to come back from death over and over again using said save points, and eventually it reaches the point where if they're killing during the TrueFinalBoss fight they just get right back up again and continue from where they left off. Of course, the protagonist isn't the only one with determination. Flowey and the First Child are also massive determinators with the ability to save, and they, combined with the player on a Genocide run, show that someone with such raw determination can be a very, ''very'' terrifying thing if there's no compassion or love behind it or if said determination is put to the wrong goals.]]
