There is no stopping the Determinator. They do not understand tact. They do not KnowWhenToFoldEm, and it's a waste of time to [[NeverTellMeTheOdds tell them the odds]]. No one can reason with them. They'll [[IDidWhatIHadToDo do whatever they have to]] without question. [[IHaveComeTooFar No price is too great]] to pay for success, up to and including their own life (and others'). Do not expect them to realize they might be better off letting it go, even if [[YouCanBarelyStand they can barely stand]]. If you're ever kidnapped or lost with no hope of rescue, they'll be the one [[IWillFindYou who will find you]]. Their adversaries will shout, in exasperated rage, [[WhyWontYouDie "Why Won't You Die?!"]]. For them, there is no line between "perseverance" and "insanity."

[[TheFettered The nobility of their goal]] is ''not'' necessarily proportionate to their persistence. This is just as often an obsessive rival with a grudge as it is a hero on a chivalrous quest, and where their willpower ultimately leads them will depend both on their role and on where the work stands on the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism. Heroes- especially {{Badass Normal}}s with a ScrewDestiny attitude - will defeat villains by virtue of being too stubborn to stay down. {{Anti Hero}}es will [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope Jump Off The Slippery Slope]], forsake The Powers of [[ThePowerOfLove Love]] and [[ThePowerOfFriendship Friendship]], [[HeWhoFightsMonsters become like that which they fight]], and walk the thin line between victory and tragedy. Villains will refuse to admit defeat, [[NoOneShouldSurviveThat resist seemingly fatal punishment]], [[SuperPersistentPredator hunt their prey tirelessly]] [[ImplacableMan and relentlessly]], and let the heroes know that WeWillMeetAgain.
