** Sigrun, the Norwegian member of the team whose profession is PlaguerZombie hunter, considers salvaging for books in a ForbiddenZone riden with said {{Plague Zombie}}s while officially guarding scholars doing research a vacation. She also considers that Emil and Lalli are competent merely from not dying on their first mission and has acquired a hatred of backtracking due to having consistently gotten ambused while doing it.
** Lalli, one of the Finns of the crew, is known to have made one mistake prior to Chapter 8, and that mistake caused fellow soldiers from his military base to die. The argument that he's not the only person making mistakes didn't work on his older cousin, as their grandmother making a mistake that had dire consequences was the reason they moved from their old home to their military base when Lalli was only eight year old. In the present day, Lalli's mindset includes a ''very, very'' big stigma against making mistakes.

*''Film/AssassinsCreed2016'': In response to Sophie saying she wants to "cure aggression", Callum says that aggression helped keep him alive. This is not hyperbole; he was fake executed for the self-defense murder of a pimp.

* In the early days of the United States Navy, the entirety of their dedicated warship fleet were six heavy gun frigates. Because of the nascent nation's limited means, these six warships were designed to outgun anything of comparable size and outrun anything that outclasses it. The famous U.S.S. ''Constitution'' was one of these, and the "outrun" aspect is attested by their ability to run British blockades during the War of 1812, and the "Outgun" portion most exemplified by the famous U.S.S ''Constitution'' versus H.M.S. ''Guerriere'' naval battle. Today, the ''Constitution'' is the oldest commissioned warship still afloat[[note]]The Royal Navy's H.M.S. ''Victory'' is older, but she is permanently drydocked[[/note]], serving as a "Ship of State" for the US Navy.

During the Barbary invasion ("The Shores of Tripoli" in the USMC Hymn) carried out because the US Government deemed coming to blows with the Barbary Pirates was less onerous than paying their tributes and ransoms, Ol' Ironsides was the main offshore bombardment asset in play.

** Northmen are of this opinion about their homeland. By the same token, the wildlings beyond the Wall see even the northmen as soft, pampered southerners.
** The ironborn have a cultural superiority complex based on this: "Hard places breed hard men, and hard men rule the world."

--> For decades they said about [[http://witcher.wikia.com/wiki/Kovir_and_Poviss Kovir]] that its only riches are sand and seawater. This joke was still remembered when Kovir de-facto monopolized the world market of glass and salt.

** The Drow in {{Eberron}} are possibly the toughest humanoid inhabitants of the setting, since they live in the [[DeathWorld jungles of Xen'Drik]] and have to tangle with giants for resources regularly.

* ''Franchise/{{Starcraft}}'' has the Zerg deliberately invoke this. They send hive clusters or entire broods to any DeathWorld they can find to force evolution upon their forces. Notable examples include Kaldir which is only ''slightly'' warmer than deep space, Char which is a volcanic planet whose only liquid seems to be an acid marsh, and Zerus where the lack of a HiveMind means [[EverythingTryingToKillYou everything is trying to kill everything else]].

** In a way, this is true of Humanity as a race. When you are constantly battling omnivorous monsters that outnumber the stars, invincible omnicidal Terminators, AxCrazy RealityWarper fungus aliens, psychopathic space elves, mind-controlling Communist Japanese aliens, and TheLegionsOfHell, all at the same time, and ''surviving'', you have to be pretty damn {{Badass}}.

** In the ''Shards of Alara'' block, the plane of Alara was split apart into five "Shards", sub-planes where one color of mana dominated with its two compliment colors, with the other two cut off completely. The White, Blue, and Green shards got off pretty easy, as Bant is downright Arthurian, Esper is a world of unquestionable progress, and even the untamed jungle shard of Naya is a verdent jungle so full of life and vitality that it's practically pastoral. The Red and Black shards, however...
*** The Red shard of Jund is defined by constant predation. There is no "prey" in Jund; Even the smallest and weakest creatures are still dangerously venomous, and [[EverythingsBetterWithDragons dragons]] sit at the top of a food chain where every link is lethal.
*** By ''sharp'' contrast Grixis, the Black Shard, is very literally a DeathWorld; The mountains are large piles of bones, there are more undead than living, the few communities of living people must constantly hide in fear of being killed, reanimated, and/or enslaved by demons. Necromancers, who usually make up a scant minority in other settings, are flagrant and abundant, as the ones who typically keep them in check are nowhere to be found.
