* ''OnePiece'' has done this a number of times. Most notably with Usopp the LovableCoward, since he pretty much ''needs'' Heroic Spirit to break through his fear. His fight with Mr. 4 and Miss Merry Christmas had him stand up after taking a four ton bat ''to the face.'' His battle with Perona did this more literally, with Usopp calling upon his alter ego Soge King to save him.

* 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]]''.

Zelda even notes in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' that whatever this Link [[AmnesiacHero may have forgotten]] since waking up in the Shrine of Resurrection, he never once forgot his courage.

* Amazing {{Spider-Man}} #33 was one of the best issues of the original Stan Lee/Steve Ditko run. It is the third part of "If This Be My Destiny" three part arc. Spider-Man trapped under a huge piece of equipment after a fight with Doctor Octopus. His Aunt May is dying and needs a serum to cure her. Spidey thinks about giving up, but he's determined not to let Aunt May down. He uses every ounce of strength and will and finally lifts the wreckage off. The sequence was later adapted in the animated series ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' in the episode "Shear Strength", and partially adapted [[spoilers:in live-action near the climax of ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming''.]]

*** ''Anime/MazingerZ'''s Mazinpower. It is hinted in the original ''Anime/MazingerZ'' series and more heavily in other ''[[Anime/CBCharaGoNagaiWorld related]]'' ''[[ShinMazingerZero series]] the "God or demon" Dr. Kabuto lecture is due to Mazinger-Z's power depends on Kouji's HeroicSpirit. If Kouji is in TheDeterminator mode and wanting to save the world, it will even move on its own to save Kouji. If Kouji has crossed the DespairEventHorizon [[spoiler:it will become a demon.]]

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

good guys who can think like this.



* Samwise Gamgee in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''.
** This is a trait of many characters, including Frodo and Aragorn. Even Gollum shows this at times.

* Samwise Gamgee in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''.
**
This is a trait of many characters, including common virtue in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''. Sam Gamgee is the most conspicuous and memorable example, but Frodo and Aragorn. Even Gollum shows Aragorn are quite similar; so is Gollum, in his better moments.
** But there's no trace of
this way of thinking in Mordor. Sauron sitting in his [[http://www.thelandofshadow.com/professor-tolkiens-dark-tower-of-mordor/ drab brick fortress]] was thinking in bureaucratic, impersonal, decidedly modern terms; when he died, his armies just kind of gave up, and didn't organize any sort of effective resistance. Look at times.the appendixes: Gondor's armies, which Aragorn judged completely inadequate to fight Sauron, were more than enough to conquer most of Near Harad and campaign with impunity in Rhun once Sauron's government was out of the picture. (The aftermath of ''The Lord of the Rings'' was a heroic version of the Fall of Rome; the total number of barbarians who conquered the Roman Empire was smaller than the population of the city of Rome itself.)



* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 3.5's Iron Heart Surge is a manifestation of such, but due to poor wording it is able to stop the sun's heat (because it is an effect under the rules for a desert) or the sun's light (as it lowers the accuracy of some races) forever as they are effects effecting you that are not instantaneous. Conversely, it is useless against most incapacitating conditions - if you're mind-controlled, stunned or nauseated, you can't take the standard action to use the maneuver.

It requires a standard action, so it's useless against mind control, stunning, nausea, and other incapacitating conditions; but, since the sun's heat (because it is an effect under the rules for a desert) or desert rules, and the sun's light (as it lowers the accuracy of for some races) forever as they are races, you can use an Iron Heart Surge to stop the sun from shining. ([[Series/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic The night will last forever]], too, since the sun's effects effecting affect you that and are not instantaneous. Conversely, it is useless against most incapacitating conditions - if you're mind-controlled, stunned or nauseated, you can't take the standard action to use the maneuver.instantaneous.)


Added DiffLines:

** Link isn't the only one with this outlook in this setting. Ganondorf is little affected by being repeatedly sealed away and having been killed outright at least once; his confidence that he was right broke down in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker The Wind Waker]]'' (which would be a very interesting game to have a sequel to), but his determination to do what he has resolved to do is pretty much unbreakable. And, unlike Sauron, he has followers who share his determination and can act pretty effectively on their own.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'': The series doesn't dwell on it, but there are moments when you notice the immense strength of Sunset Shimmer's resolve. She's been through several situations and sudden challenges that an ordinary person might not even live through, but they barely even slow her down.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''TabletopGame/SentinelsOfTheMultiverse'', ''all'' heroes benefit from this. Heroes who run out of HP don't die; they simply become "incapacitated", meaning they can't play hero cards or use their default side's powers - but they ''can'' use one of the three effects listed on the reverse side of their card, allowing them to support their allies even when barely holding on to consciousness. Some of these options can be game-breakingly powerful - one version of Tempest, for example, has an incapacitated option that renders the remaining heroes impervious to one kind of damage (out of eleven), which can lead to a very, ''very'' hard day for bosses like Iron Legacy (who mostly rely on melee damage to actually do anything).

* Pegasus Seiya from ''SaintSeiya'' has this. Though he is a lowly Bronze Saint, when his life is on the line, Princess Saori's life, or the fate of the world and loved ones is at stake, Seiya will do just about everything in his power, even go beyond limits to bring justice and save the day, even if he gets beaten black and blue by Saints way above his power level.
