** Then there's Wonder Woman in the adaption of ''ComicBook/ForTheManWhoHasEverything''. She absolutely gets the shit beat out of her by Mongul for almost the entire episode and refuses to stay down even though each hit she takes brings her closer and closer to death. She shows that you CAN be on the receiving end of a total CurbStompBattle and still look {{Badass}}.

** This is one of [[BadassBookworm Twilight]] [[DitzyGenius Sparkle's]] most defining traits; she'll keep trying at a task, no matter how impossible it seems, for better or for worse.

* Pearl, from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is a big advocate of practice and determined study. Even in the very first episode, her advice to Steven with regards to summoning his weapon is to focus on hard work and dedication. Later on, we find out that a lot of the things we associate with Pearl, such as her skills in sword fighting and engineering, [[spoiler: are skills that Pearls are not intended to possess, and which she has only mastered because of her own interest and refusal to give up.]] While she has mellowed a bit in the actual episodes due to her self-esteem issues, especially pretty much every flashback show her as nothing short of a assassin badass that even [[GeniusBruiser Garnet]] had been horribly scared of at one point.

** Just as Determined is Fry, who wouldn't give up hope looking for Bender, who was lost in deep space.
--> '''Fry''': You can't give up hope just because it's hopeless. You have to hope even more! And cover your ears and go Blah blah blah blah blah!

** Finn's unwavering moral code is what makes him such an awesome character. No matter how often he is criticized for it, or how many times its challenged, he is freaking intent on doing the right thing [[spoiler: even if its the wrong thing by accident]].

* Red Hood, of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' suffered the same chemical bath as the Joker. However, he didn't crack, and he kept this up throughout his career, repeatedly battling whole teams of villains with nothing but throwing knives and grit. His response to electroshock torture? "Ahaha, it tickles!"

However, he didn't crack, crack (albeit he did, in his own words, "bend"), and he kept this up throughout his career, repeatedly battling whole teams of villains with nothing but throwing knives large spades (the playing card symbol, much like Batman's batarangs) and grit. His response to electroshock torture? "Ahaha, it tickles!"

* Grunkle Stan from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', despite having always been treated as the less intelligent [[spoiler: twin]], spent thirty years working day and night to understand the science underpinning [[spoiler: his brother Ford's]] work, including studying physics for what was almost certainly the first time, considering that Stan [[spoiler: was kicked out of the family's home before completing high school]], and attempting to rebuilt the [[spoiler: inter-dimensional portal]] with only a third of the instructions.
