* A flashback in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' shows this happening to [[spoiler: Link]]. Between sustaining mortal injuries and fighting off waves of [[EliteMook Guardians]], he would not stop fighting in order to protect Zelda's life. He collapses and would have died had it not been for Zelda's intervention.

** When [[spoiler: Kenpachi]]'s Bankai is activated prematurely by [[spoiler: Yachiru]] he gains an absurd amount of strength, but his body is almost incapable of withstanding it. Trying to swing his sword around rips apart his arm.
** [[spoiler: Gremmy Thoumeaux]] [[RealityWarper wills himself]] [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor stronger than his opponent]], the aforementioned [[spoiler: Kenpachi]]. His newfound strength literally rips him apart, killing him in the process.

* An almost literal example happened during the shutdown of the original 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.

* Oddly enough, this is the goal (thought not the only goal) for some military branches, especially special forces. Sleep deprivation, inadequate food, extreme physical work... very often, however, the purpose is not to see if you can endure such conditions, but rather to see how you react to them, and whether you give up or keep going despite the exhaustion.

** In addition, if you kill her in a Neutral run, [[spoiler: she'll still find the strength to fight you with even stronger moves than before in her last moments. However, if you don't finish her off then and there, and just let her keep attacking, her moves will gradually slow down and become weaker, with ''her entire body dissolving'' as she dies from overexerting herself with Determination.]]

He was unconscious for a full day and couldn't manage any spells for a week. He didn't return to full strength until Dengel treated the damage he did to himself.]]
