** In [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/ book four]], he is forced to watch a friend die, [[spoiler: witness Voldemort's return,]] gets tortured, and duels both physically and psychologically, all the while bleeding from a leg injury. He is semi-conscious when he gets back, gets even more danger and revelatory crap dumped on him, and is mercifully put out with sleeping potion afterwards.

** The final face-off at the end of book one culminates with the agony in his scar reaching such high levels that he loses his sight and all rational function before falling into a three-day coma.
** In book three, after a chase, a fight, a series of mind-blowing revelations, another fight, and almost getting his soul sucked out through his mouth, he faints and gets shipped off to the hospital wing before the second mini-climax.
** In book four, he is forced to watch a friend die, [[spoiler: witness Voldemort's return,]] gets tortured, and duels both physically and psychologically, all the while bleeding from a leg injury. He is semi-conscious when he gets back, gets even more danger and revelatory crap dumped on him, and is mercifully put out with sleeping potion afterwards.
** In book five it's notably averted in contrast to book four. He goes on an extended rescue mission, gets into a huge melee chase, which later becomes an all-out brawl, with the Death Eaters, watches a loved one die, and gets possessed. However, this has traumatized him so badly he breaks down and goes into RageAgainstTheMentor mode.
** In the final battle, he is temporarily refreshed [[spoiler: by ''dying'']], plucking him up enough to save the day, after which he stumbles off to bed on his own power for a sandwich and some sleep.
** A more minor example happens during the second book, when he wins a Quiddich game by catching the Snitch, only for a Bludger to hit him on the arm hard enough to break it. He falls off of his broom and says "Ah, we won," before fainting.

** And the fact that he collapses JUST short of reaching the recall button does nothing to diminish his badassery in that episode. However, it may not fit this trope, as he passes out before completing the task, not after. Then again, he wakes up to [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming his crew having returned anyway without the signal]], confirms that they are all ''real'' and okay, then passes out again. This second pass-out may count.
