* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' is patrolling almost every night, still has an active day life and tiring himself during a fight is a case of WorfHadTheFlu instead of what would naturally happen if you jump in a fighttwenty to one after jumping from rooftops. Bane used most of the rogue gallery to tire Batman when he had a bad flu before beating him

* In ''Literature/RangersApprentice'', there's a note at least once a book that ranger ponies (and ranger dogs) can keep up their special ranger pace all day and not get tired.

* In ''Literature/RangersApprentice'', there's a note at least once a book that ranger Ranger ponies (and ranger dogs) dogs, in one particular case) can keep up their special ranger the pace all day and not get tired.tired. This is actually justified, given that the horses are bred for stamina as much as, if not more than, strength and speed.

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', around the halfway point of the Tournament of Power, Goku [[spoiler:after unlocking and subsequently losing his Ultra Instinct form while fighting Jiren]] is moderately injured with his stamina especially low enough that other, weaker fighters, who all watched how amazingly powerful he is, are confident that they can take him out early. Yet despite this, Goku immediately starts fighting again, accesses his [[SuperMode super modes]] regularly[[spoiler:, including the above Ultra Instinct form again]], which are said to take energy just to ''activate'', and performs feats such as [[spoiler:fighting a [[FusionDance fused]], super-powerful saiyan and shooting a Kamehameha ''while being crushed by the equivalent of a black hole'']]. By the time the latter fight happened, it was not ''5 minutes'' after he lost most of his stamina to begin with.

Rather than being able to [[MadeOfIron take insane amounts of punishment]], someone is able to to carry on in a more mundane manner as long as the RuleOfCool, RuleOfDrama, or RuleOfFunny dictates. For example, police officers in most police procedural who seem to be able to stay awake for several nights and still chase the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Villain of the Week]], In games it is an [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality Acceptable Break From Reality]] to keep the game from getting bogged down.

Kagami's Zone on ''Manga/{{KurokoNoBasuke}}''
* In [[Manga/DragonBall]], Frieza is established to have poor stamina when fighting at full power during the Namek Arc. Since the anime infamously added a ton of [[Padding]] to this part of the battle, the original ''Z'' run never really makes it apparent as Goku and Frieza duke it out for a grand total of ''19'' episodes.

** Based on real science, where a human ''can'' technically get the required amount of REM sleep by training their body to near-instantly enter this state for 30 minutes at a time. Granted this is said to require ''two hours'', so Elliott makes it count even further by not going for that extra half hour.

** Subverted much like Hardcore in ''New Vegas'' above when playing on Survival difficulty in that you need to maintain your needs. However, there's also the fact that [[CheckpointStarvation you can only save when resting as well,]] meaning hours of gameplay can be lost if you don't keep up on your bed rest.

* This is the Aiel's [[PlanetOfHats hat]] in the ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime''. They can keep up with a horse while on foot and can do so for quite a while. (Trained humans can chase an unburdened horse until it dies of exhaustion. Keeping up with a warhorse carrying an armored knight is plausible, though BadAss, especially for an entire army with supply lines and logistics to worry about.)
