* It can be said that defiance is ComicBook/LexLuthor's super power. As well as his undying campaign against [[PhysicalGod someone like Superman]], in one instance, he is kidnapped by SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and tortured for the location of some of the Joker's meaner gadgets. Luthor's response? Tease the Joker about his FoeYay with Bats.

* Oddly, the best example in ''ComicBook/RedSonja'' isn't a warrior but an intellectual, Plaitius the stargazer. His observations led him to a Copernican model of the solar system in defiance of religious teachings. Imprisoned and tortured, he refused to recant his theories even to save his own life.

** Whatever else you think of him, Tywin's decision to denounce the man who just mortally wounded him rather than whimper or plead is worthy of respect.

* A downplayed example, but UsefulNotes/CatherineOfAragon, [[UsefulNotes/HenryVIII Henry VIII’s]] first wife, could be seen as an example of this. After her marriage to Henry was annulled against her will, she was referred to as Princess Dowager (in reference to her being the widow to Henry's brother Prince Arthur - a marriage she firmly claimed was no consummated), but refused to accept this. On her deathbed, she wrote a final letter to her former husband, and signed it as ‘Catherine the Queen’.

** Also, Evey. After being captured and tortured by the government, they give her a choice: give them information on V, or be taken behind the chemical sheds and shot. Her response is to calmly say “Thank you, but I'd rather die behind the chemical sheds”. [[spoiler: This is subverted though, it in that it turns out ''V'' was the one who kidnapped and tortured her, specifically to get her to the point that she would no longer fear death]].

* In chapter 60 of ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', a teenage, powerless Carol Danvers, [[spoiler: is exhausted, beaten to hell, barely conscious and halfway frozen to death after a brutal fight with everything from supercharged werewolves to Slender Men and a killer robot based on the Destroyer and piloted by Baron Zemo, faces down a supercharged werewolf, picks up a rock and tells it to bring it on]]. When it pounces on her, she gives it the famous line from ''Film/DogSoldiers''. "I hope I give you the shits." [[spoiler: She survives, because of the FriendToAllChildren tendencies of the Winter Soldier, who breaks his brainwashing, executes a HeelFaceTurn and hands out a brutal [[CurbstompBattle shitstomping]] to the werewolf - which is, it should be noted, the size of a 4x4, or thereabouts - with his bare hands]].
** In chapter 44, both [[spoiler: Sif and Harry Dresden]] pull this on Gravemoss. The former spits in his face after having her heart ripped out and the latter gives him a shit-eating grin and a PreAsskickingOneLiner before his attempt at TakingYouWithMe - while it doesn't succeed, it is truly epic. Both get better, however.

* Pretty much the MO of [[UsefulNotes/KatanasOfTheRisingSun Japanese forces]] during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. There's a pretty good reason why there were much fewer prisoners taken in by the Allies, as they preferred death before surrender.
