** While all series are guilty of this to some extent, ''Time Force'' is particularly {{egregious}} with this. The red ranger repeatedly fell from heights that should have shattered him. One episode in particular stands out: the red ranger was recruited to be a stuntman for a scene where not only he's cut with real swords, but he falls at least five stories onto concrete ''after'' the cushion is taken out from under him. He's "lucky to be in one piece" indeed.

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'':
** The Groosalugg. Part of his BadassNormal-ity.
--> '''Angel:''' (Watching the Groosalugg stick his hand in open flame to prepare for battle) This guy - he doesn't feel pain?
--> '''Fred:''' Oh, he feels it, but - he's the Groosalugg. He overcomes all things. Good luck!
** Connor is able to shrug off getting hit by a van and slammed into a building with little to no problem.

* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': Malcolm Reynolds can take insane amounts of damage; in the episode "War Stories" he gets ''[[ColdBloodedTorture tortured to death]]'', only to be revived and then get up, stick the [[HoistByHisOwnPetard torturer with his own weapon]], and start beating up the BigBad.

His actor Creator/NathanFillion comments on this in a featurette, saying he based the way Mal fights on ''Film/IndianaJones'': You can tell he ''is'' seriously hurting, but he just shrugs it off and keeps coming.

* ''Series/{{Vikings}}'': Bjorn Ragnarsson receives the nicname "Ironsides" because he survived a long battle without a single injury despite always being in the thick of fighting. The nature of the fighting meant that even the most experienced veteran warriors ended up with some injuries but Bjorn did not have a single scratch on him.

[[spoiler:When Bjorn is nearly killed in a battle during the next season, however, he half-jokingly reprimands his father for having given him the nickname, saying that it was TemptingFate.]]

* Cooking shows are prone to this trope. Cut yourself with a knife? Bandage it up, put a glove on, make sure you didn't bleed in the food, and keep going. Usually justified by the presence of a time limit-- when you're on the set or in a competition, you don't have ''time'' to worry about injuries, unless you've contaminated the food.
** A truly impressive example in Season Four of US ''Series/{{Masterchef}}''": [[{{Fingore}} Cut yourself with the mandoline]]? Sit down so you don't pass out from blood loss, let Gordon Ramsey [[{{Squick}} dig the remains of your finger out of the mandoline]], and [[{{Determinator}} coach your team from the sidelines]].

* ''Series/{{Fargo}}'': The Gerhardt crime family in Season 2 seem to be this, as many of their family members are able to take an obscene amount of damage. Notable examples include [[spoiler: Rye]] being able to survive getting hit by a car head-on, and [[spoiler: Bear]] surviving two gunshots to the chest and one to the head.
