** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Epically done by Professor X, who resists Apocalypse in ''any'' way he can even when the situation is absolutely hopeless and his options are virtually nil. Charles warps the ending of Apocalypse's NewEraSpeech to try to give the weaker individuals of the populace a chance (however small it may be) to survive, and as he's forced to carry out Apocalypse's bidding, Xavier sends Jean Grey a secret telepathic message to let her know of his location. Professor X initiates a psychic battle with Apocalypse to buy time for Mystique and Quicksilver, who are both in immediate mortal danger because of the god-like mutant. No matter how [[spoiler:brutal or violent Apocalypse's MindRape is]], Charles' spirit doesn't break as long it can still draw breath. Even as [[spoiler:his mind is on the verge of death]], he still uses what little energy he has left to respond to Apocalypse's threat with a BadassBoast, and Xavier then [[spoiler:summons Jean to unleash the Phoenix]].



* In {{Film/Equilibrium}}, Partridge actually doesn't care when he's eventually exposed, going so far as to calmly quote a Yeats poem in front of Preston. He refuses to bend to Libria's will, even with Preston standing over him with a gun. Part of the reason for his defiance can be better demonstrated in the conversation below, since his questioning with Preston clearly involved trying to get the latter to do the same himself and fight against society instead of with it. [[spoiler: We later discover he was part of the Resistance, enabling Preston to have his HeelFaceTurn, join them and help take down the corrupt governing power. Namely DuPont, since he happened to be the real ruler, but did it under the guise of Father after the latter died]].

He then catches [[RippleProofMemory Jade]] is his grip and [[WouldHurtAChild intends to kill her]] for coming close to snatching away his victory gained from tampering with the Book. As Shendu squeezes her and there seems to be no way out, Jade still has it in her to defy Shendu and call him out of using his rewrites to [[HypnotizeThePrincess lure Valerie into his clutches]]. Fortunately Valerie, filled with suspicions, [[RightBehindMe arrives in time to hear Shendu and Jade's argument]], and Shendu directs his attention from Jade to Valerie]].
