* An almost literal example happened during the shutdown of Xbox Live. Because the servers couldn't be closed until everyone disconnected, a flurry of player continuously stayed home playing their favorite games online one last time until their consoles crashed from overuse.

* Humans are capable of using only one-third of their muscles' potential strength (even when hyped up on steroids) due to a biological block. [[UninhibitedMusclePower Only a few people have gone past this with even fewer reaching full potential]]. Every one of those situations was a life or death situation, when special hormones such as adrenaline are able to allow us to override the block, hence how people refer to this reaction as "fight-or-flight". The reason why this DefenceMechanismSuperpower can only remain as a defence mechanism is because the stress reaction deprives other systems of energy, like for example digestion (hence BringMyBrownPants) and the immune system (hence why chronically stressed people are more likely to get sick), and also because any amount of exertion above the one-third limit causes our muscles (and even tendons) to tear themselves from the bone, rip themselves apart, or even start to '''liquefy'''. Of course, the severity of the damage depends on the intensity of the stressor, how far beyond the limits one goes, and for how long.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', [=SpongeBob=] enters his Pet snail Gary into a race. Preparing for the race, he puts Gary through a [[TrainingFromHell brutal training regimen]], giving him no break whatsoever. On the day of the race, Gary is already tired. During the race, [=SpongeBob=] harshly orders Gary to move on until Gary's [[EyeScream eyes blow up]] and he has a "Blown head gasket." Then he literally crashes like a racecar.
** [[CrossesTheLineTwice And then the crowd goes wild.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002'', in the origin of the power of Grayskull, King Grayskull, the original wielder of He-Man's sword, fought with everything he had to save his kingdom from the evil Hordak, at the cost of his own life.
** What makes it really bittersweet was the fact that he was told by an oracle this would happen. Despite knowing his fate, all that Grayskull cared about was that his kingdom would be free. That just shows how much a guy will lay down for his people.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Margaritaville", Kyle uses a credit card with no spending limit to pay off the town's debts. This task turned out to be so exhausting that when he collapsed, everyone begins to fear that he had died.

* Happens to Applejack in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E4ApplebuckSeason "Applebuck Season"]]. She tries to harvest her family's entire apple farm by herself, and refuses to rest or accept help. As the episode progresses, she gets more and more exhausted, her vision and hearing become blurred, and she slowly goes insane from sleep deprivation (and this is after a whole ''week'' of non-stop work). She finally accepts help when she assumes she was finished, but finds that she only harvested about half the orchard.

* SixthRanger Arumat from ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheLastHope'' has, through extensive amounts of gene modification, combat stims, and lord-knows-what-else, has made himself into a {{Badass}} OneManArmy. However, it's also caused a breakdown in the structure of the cells that make up his muscle/skeletal systems; and he doesn't have long until his body starts to ''[[BodyHorror literally]]'' fall apart. Arumat's well aware of this, but [[DeathSeeker refuses to seek treatment for his condition]], preferring to live his life out as a fighter. [[spoiler: It's his way of atoning for all the men he's lost along the way.]]

* In the ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' series, [[FunctionalMagic Mages]] and those using [[PsychicPowers Gifts]] run the risk of overexerting themselves and going into "backlash shock". This can sometimes be done deliberately as a form of CastFromHitPoints; taken to the ultimate conclusion it's known as a Final Strike, as in it's final for the mage attempting it.

Added DiffLines:

* During her time as Quake, [[spoiler:having left S.H.I.E.L.D.,]] Daisy Johnson of ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' refuses to wear the metal gauntlets designed to help her focus her earthquake powers. The gauntlets were also designed to protect her bones, and she's been overusing her powers; this means that throughout early Season 4, ''she's been gradually breaking her arms''. Not even her abuse of Rapid Bone-Healing Pills has helped, and by the fourth episode, even a weak shockwave is excruciating, to say nothing of the move resulting in the page quote.

->'''Jemma''': Another move like that, and you're likely to break every bone in your arms.\\
'''Daisy''': Yeah... I might've done that already.
