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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.)

* Justified in TheElenium. After a long day of travel, the knights discover that they are being followed by those who are seeking to kill them. Sephrenia [[AWizardDidIt uses her magic]] to cast a dangerous spell that simulates the effects of a full night's sleep. This allows them all to get to an inn where they can sleep safely. The spell is dangerous because it doesn't actually provide the rest that it simulates, so if used too often it can cause the caster to die from exhaustion.

* Kakashi Hatake from ''{{Naruto}}'' was established as having poor stamina, and yet he's been fighting for days in the war arc. Although, to be fair, there are medical ninjas running around the divisions to heal him off-screen, and he has had the entirety of the manga's run (almost three years in-universe) to work out of that handicap. But even when he gets a recharge from the Nine-Tails's chakra, that's only after he and Gai went up against several mind-controlled Tailed Beasts and two of the {{Big Bad}}s alongside Naruto. And he just keeps on going throughout the remainder of the FinalBattle like it's nothing even when that supply starts to run out.
