* 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.

* The golden trio from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' stay awake through pretty much the second half of the last book, which, admittedly, [[CosmicDeadline only comprises a day]] (from one dawn to the next) but, throughout that day, [[ExtremelyShortTimespan they do quite a lot of stuff]]. Only the storming of Gringotts would have been enough to leave them, or any normal person/wizard, exhausted in normal circumstances.

* ''VideoGame/{{STALKER}}'': The Marked One and Major Degtayrev are apparently machines - despite engaging in countless gunfights, being awake possibly for in-game weeks, and dealing with the [[EverythingTryingToKillYou myriad dangers of the Zone]], neither of them show the slightest dip in physical performance. Degtayrev at least has the ''option'' to sleep, but without prompting from the player (and there's no benefit beyond fast-forwarding) they can apparently go indefinitely without sleep.

Certain mods change this a bit: they add a sleeping bag and a ''need'' to sleep, because otherwise you'll end up with a condition similar to being drunk and around a Controller's psy field at the same time, and it only gets worse over time.

* This is said to be true of aboriginals in ''TheGodsMustBeCrazy 2'', where they can keep moving at a decent clip across long distances where Westerners would have stopped after less than an hour.
* In ''TheGraduate'', Ben spends the last portion of the movie running like hell to [[SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace stop his beloved's wedding]], basically power-jogging nonstop for ages with only a pause to make a phone call. Nicely [[ChekhovsSkill led up to]] throughout the film with repeated mentions of Ben's position in college as captain of the track team.
* In ''[[TheLordOfTheRings The Two Towers]]'', Aragorn and Legolas seem to be sprinting non-stop across miles and miles of land to chase down the kidnapped Hobbits, with Gimli barely keeping up and heavily winded. In the book, at least, it is mentioned that this is in fact abnormal and not just something they can all do all the time. It is apparently named "The Deed Of The Three Friends" and ballads are sung about it. The book also lets them rest a bit more than the movie, where Gimli states that it's been three days pursuit with no food, water or rest. In the book they at least pause so that Gimli and Aragorn can sleep while Legolas keeps guard, since his Elvish superpowers include the lack of a need to sleep.

* In the [[XWingSeries W-Wing novel]] ''Starfighters of Adumar'', [[BadassNormal Wedge Antilles]] is the senior [[AssInAmbassador ambassador]]-slash-celebrity-AcePilot of the New Republic to the eponymous world. His normal duties involve mock dueling with Adumari pilots for several hours, followed by postmortem discussions about their tactics, skills, and [[ProudWarriorRace concept of honor]], followed by politicking over dinner. One day, he goes through this schedule until, at a dinner meeting with the ''perator'' (emperor) of Cartaan, he insults the emperor and his plan to TakeOverTheWorld, which earns him exile "by gauntlet". He proceeds, along with three of his pilots, to run, sneak, and shoot through half the city to reach a friendly airbase. He goes up in the air and encounters enemy pilots -- thirty, against the four New Republic fliers, who are using inferior and unfamiliar equipment -- and ''vapes them all''. After that, his fighter too heavily damaged to escape, he sneaks ''back'' into the city, links up with a friend of his who happens to be a New Republic spy, is smuggled out of the country, meets with the ''perator'' of his new host nation, agrees to help them in their new war against Cartaan, and is fully prepared to plan an invasion in twelve hours and then roar off in his fighter ''again''. [[OnlySaneMan Tycho]] [[RealityEnsues promptly tells him to go to bed]].
