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."

Compare SuicidalOverconfidence, a common feature of many {{Video Game}} genres where enemies will always, blindly, and relentlessly be at your throat with no regard for how horribly you are massacring them (though this is more due to [[NecessaryWeasel genre requirements]] than characterization). Compare and contrast ImplacableMan, who suffers no apparent damage at all. Compare TragicDream, where becoming a '''Determinator''' can only end in tears. Can be identified by their trademark DeterminedExpression.

Compare and contrast with ImplacableMan -- while a Determinator pursues his goal through sheer willpower, the ImplacableMan is driven by artificial, unnatural, or magical means, and often suffers no apparent damage at all.

We've all heard it at some time or another: "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." But some of us ''really'' take that advice to heart. Sometimes you'll find a character -- good or evil, male or female, young or old -- who never gives up. ''Ever''. No matter what.
