* Jones in ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' led the Court staff trying to catch Jack while he was [[DemonicPossession infected with Whitelegs]]. After recovery, he appreciates efforts that saved his sanity and probably life... but still [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=935 finds Jones scary]]. Apparently the enigmatic calm petite lady as unstoppable as the Film/{{Terminator}} and as perfect as Film/MaryPoppins (she can deflect sword with her face and crumble concrete like soft cheese) made a lasting impression.

** The Combustion Man, who won't stop his assassination attempts even when the [[spoiler:person who hired him tries to call the hit off]]. On his first appearance he just blew up everthing that was thrown at him. He also seems to be pretty damn MadeOfIron as he shrugged off a barrage of ice-shards and both a rock and a boomerang hitting him in the head (however, said head injuries did [[spoiler:make his power backfire and lead to him ''blowing himself up'']]). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBKJmnOpM4Q&feature=related This tribute video]] makes him appear to be TheTerminator.

* Jaws from the ''Film/JamesBond'' franchise lives through two movies by sheer force of not stopping ever.
** For that matter, Bond himself. Especially in the reboot he gets some truly epic chase scenes.
** Nearly every Bond movie has had a Dragon who is much tougher and better in a fight than Bond that he only beats through quick thinking. [[DragonTheirFeet And returns to kill Bond after the villain's defeat]].

* Mal from ''Film/{{Inception}}'' is a character that suddenly invades dream worlds and attempts to assassinate the dreamer. In a sense she's even worse than her counterpart Agent Smith in "Film/TheMatrix" movies in that she doesn't need to possess anyone, she just appears and wreaks havoc. What's really scary is that even in constructed dream worlds with trained dream operators, she's nearly impossible to stop.

* The titular ''It'' in ''Film/ItFollows''. A demon that hunts down and kills whoever is cursed with it, before moving on to the second most recent cursed person, then the next, then the next, and so on. It takes the form any random human it can think of, and nothing can kill it or permanently disable it. In fact it is so self-assured in its ability to track down and murder its victims that it never moves at a pace faster than a slow walk, as no matter how far the person it's chasing runs, they'll always get tired eventually.

** ''Film/TerminatorSalvation'' has the original T-800 chasing relentlessly after John Connor through the [[SmokeAndFireFactory very factory that is building more of them]]. It is impervious to any kind of damage Connor throws at it [[spoiler:even after having molten steel poured onto it, with said steel cooling off and being broken out of to continue the chase]]. The [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Harvester]] also counts>

*Kylo Ren in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' after taking a bowblast to the gut is able to keep moving. He is able to intercept Finn and Rey and fight them both, albeit separately. Finn gets a hit in with a lightsaber but Ren is able to take him out. When Rey takes up the saber Ren keeps her on the run for most of the fight. Even when the fight shifts in her favor and she gets a couple of hits in he still keeps going. Rey has to destroy his lightsaber and give him another wound for him to finally go down. Even then he appears to want to get up and keep fighting.

* The Irrha from Creator/TadWilliams' ''TheWarOfTheFlowers'', a mindless disease spirit that someone sends to kidnap the main character. It follows him everywhere, even between dimensions, constructing a new body from whatever's handy (trash, stray cats, parts of a homeless guy, whatever). [[spoiler: In the end, it ''can't'' be stopped from carrying out its mission- but it can be sidetracked onto the EnfanteTerrible for whom the changeling protagonist was switched at birth.]]

* Michael is a heroic version of this in the ''KnightAndRogueSeries''. Due to suffering from ChronicHeroSyndrome he eagerly pursues the villains, and when they finally confront him and throw him over a 300 ft high cliff he just gets ''winded''.

* All of TheUndead armies in TheMalazanBookOfTheFallen (the T'lan Imass, Forkrul Assail, and K'Chain Che'Malle) have this as their [[PlanetOfHats hat]]. From what we've seen of the Jaghut Tyrants they also count, as do Annomander Rake and many of the series other BadAss characters.

See also HeroKiller, TheManTheyCouldntHang, ImmortalAssassin, PerpetualMotionMonster, and PerfectPlayAI. Usually a certifiable {{Badass}}. Lends himself well to being the Goliath in a DavidVersusGoliath situation, if a villain, or an inducer of MookHorrorShow and VillainousValour if an (anti)hero. Often shows up in VideoGames as an AdvancingBossOfDoom, {{Invincible Minor Minion}}s, DemonicSpiders or a DamageSpongeBoss[=/=]MarathonBoss[=/=]some variant of ThatOneBoss.

** Spopovich, who lost quickly to [[FakeUltimateHero Mr. Satan]] in the 24th World's Martial Arts Tournament, has become one in the 25th Tournament, where he {{No Sell}}s every one of Videl's hits before he proceeds to [[CurbStompBattle pound her into the floor]]. The Z Fighters would've been able to beat him, but they don't get the chance, as [[spoiler: the Supreme Kai needs him alive so that he'll able follow him back to his boss Babidi, and when he does return to his master's ship, Babidi decides that Spopovich has [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness outlived his usefulness]].]]
