** Similarly, when the American 101st Airborne were surrounded by Germans in the city of Bastogne, the Germans sent a letter offering them the chance to surrender. The reply from Anthony [=McAuliffe=] has since become a legend within the American military: "To the German Commander: NUTS! Signed, the American Commander". [=McAuliffe=] [[GoshDangItToHeck substituted]] it for "go to hell", since he refrained from using profane language as a rule.

[[note]]Initially, [=McAuliffe=] thought the Germans were offering to surrender to him, and exclaimed "Aw, nuts!" when realizing that they wanted him to surrender. When [=McAuliffe=] and his staff were trying to decide how to word their refusal, Colonel Harry Kinnard suggested that his initially response summed it up pretty well. Colonel Joseph Harper then typed out the response and gave it to the German delegation, and when they were confused as to its meaning he "translated" it as "go to hell."[[/note]]

** 18 pulled this ''twice'' against Semi-Perfect Cell. The first time she hit him with everything she got, actually ''moving'' the far stronger opponent and slowing him down long enough for Trunks to come to the rescue. The second time, blinded by the Tayoken that allowed Cell to escape Trunks and unable to sense ''ki'', 18 opts to attack Cell with her fists, and is still trying to hit him ''after being sucked in by his tail'', only stopping after being completely absorded.

* An astonishing case of Defiant ''Past'' The End, in the ''Saint of Killers'' miniseries companion to ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}''. The titular Saint is so full of hatred that when his soul arrives in Hell, ''Hell freezes solid.'' {{Satan}} himself is unable to drive the hate from him, and only the Angel of Death agreeing to give the Saint his power in exchange for leaving Hell allows things to thaw.
** Bonus points for the fact that [[spoiler: Saint immediately proceeds to kill Satan and Death, almost as an afterthought, before leaving for Earth.]]

* During the Diamond is Unbreakable arc of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', Rohan, at the verge of being killed by Highway Star and being coerced to betray Josuke if he wants to live, delivers his famous badass one-liner instead:
--> '''Rohan''': [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/QQ80PbfYwtU/maxresdefault.jpg I refuse]]. One of my absolute favorite things to do is to say '''no''' to whoever thinks they are hot shit.

** In the conclusion of the [[CurbStompBattle Nirnaeth Arnoediad,]] Húrin is left alone on a battlefield that has been completely overrun by the enemy - the hosts of the elves were utterly broken and routed, and most of his fellow men [[spoiler: (those who didn't [[FaceHeelTurn betray the Alliance to Morgoth]]),]] lay dead all around him. So what does he do? He keeps swinging his axe against the horde of orcs all around him, and for every orc he kills he cries "Auré enteluva (Day shall come again)!" He kills ''over 70 orcs'' before being taken.

--> Settra said this to [[OmnicidalManiac Nagash]], one of the most terrifying villains in Warhammer Fantasy, Who offered the position of being a Mortarch, in other words, becoming one of the Nagash's liutenants. Settra gave this response. Nagash then proceeded to destroy everything Settra fought for, while keeping him alive.

* 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.

There's a pretty good reason why there were much fewer prisoners taken in by the Allies, as they preferred death before surrender. This attitude actually triggered a GodzillaThreshold: given an invasion of the Japanese mainland would almost certainly result in the aforesaid cranked UpToEleven (meaning any plan they had for a conventional invasion predicted mass casualties), the Americans instead decided to resort to a couple of atomic bombs in hopes the Japanese would see overwhelming force as a reason to stop.




Eventually she was locked up and isolated. But even then, she refused conversion, [[HonorBeforeReason even when other Jewish leaders were begging her to convert]], and was beheaded as an apostate. She earned the nicknamed "The Righteous Sol".

* Irma Grese, "the Hyena of Auschwitz". A sadistic and perverted Lesbian concentration camp guardian, who had murdered scores of prisoners, she was sentenced to death by hanging after the WWII. She died as an unrepentant National Socialist. Her last word to her executioner, Albert Pierrepoint, was a commanding ''Schnell!'' (literally "Speed!", meaning "Have speed with it!")
