The spirit of a true hero is an awesome thing. The heroes can do anything if they are driven enough. They will not surrender, they will not stay down. Death, TheVirus, [[InjuryTropes Broken Bones]], they are all to be shrugged off when the chips are down. No DespairEventHorizon for them.

* Captain Malcolm Reynolds in ''{{Series/Firefly}}'', starting with his very first scene in the pilot, showing his refusal to lay down arms when he's caught on the losing side of the battle of Serenity Valley, and reiterated often after that. Played up more than ever in the BigDamnMovie. Ditto Simon Tam- a mild-mannered DeadpanSnarker FishOutOfWater who isn't much good at fighting, but will go to ''any'' lengths to [[PapaBear protect his baby sister]]. Including [[spoiler: offering to be burned at the stake with her when their present company decides she's a witch. (Luckily for them, the rest of the crew arrived just in time to rescue them.)]].

* ''{{Exalted}}'' has Willpower, which can be spent to throw off mental influence, or to enhance ability rolls. Channel one of your Virtues for the latter use, and the action is all but guaranteed to succeed if that Virtue is high enough. So, basically, by being a heroic person, you can channel the raw PowerOfLove (Compassion), [[TheFettered level-headedness and discipline]] (Temperance), {{Hot Blooded}}ness (Valor), or sheer [[{{Determinator}} determination]] (Conviction).

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', Roman Torchwick attempts to deconstruct Ruby Rose's attitude as a part of his BreakingSpeech, claiming that that sort of attitude don't fly in this world and that if she wants to be a hero, then she should just be like every other Huntsman in history and just die while he gloats that he'll keep going by lying, cheating, stealing and, ultimately, surviving. [[spoiler:He's, then, ate by a Grimm.]]

* Goku, particularly in the ''Anime/DragonballZ'' arcs could be said to be this.

to:

* Goku, particularly in the ''Anime/DragonballZ'' arcs could be said to be this. He refuses to surrender to [[DespairEventHorizon hopelessness or despair]], will keep fighting even as his body breaks down, and will [[HeroicRROD willingly tear his own body apart]] and [[HeroicSacrifice give his life]] if it means even a remote chance of winning. He will only surrender if he knows that there is absolutely no chance of victory or he's physically unable to move anymore.



* While there was much debate as to [[HeroicLineage what]] [[{{Reincarnation}} connections]] each Link in ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series have to each other, the one thing that's outright stated is that all Links share the same HeroicSpirit.[[note]] With Hyrule Historia came the clarification that each Link is a reincarnation of Hylia's chosen hero, except when it's explicitly stated that it's the same Link or a descendant, as is the case between ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaofTime Ocarina of Time]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' Links[[/note]].It's explicitly ''why'' he was [[TheChosenOne chosen to be the Hero]] as of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]''.

The spirit of a true hero is an awesome thing. The heroes can do anything if they are driven enough. They will not surrender, they will not stay down. Death, TheVirus, {{Wangst}}, they are all to be shrugged off when the chips are down. No DespairEventHorizon for them.

Now this ''seems'' to be [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism strictly idealistic]], but get an AntiHero against the ropes, and the same spirit will show up, even if manifested in different forms.

** During ''[[ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman Reign of the Superman]], Mongul is gloating to Hal Jordan over his inability to fight lest he accidentally kill Superman again. His body is broken and the best he can do is crawl to the fallen sledgehammer of ComicBook/{{Steel}}. But, the thing is heavy and his body is hurting, even with ring-powered exoskeleton powering him up. When Mongul suggests that he's broken his spirit, it's enough to piss Hal off that he creates a PoweredArmor from his ring to lift the hammer, pulls back, and ''smashes it into Mongul's face''.
