* The protagonists of the ''Franchise/SilentHill'' games have a hidden stamina statistic that would eventually force you to walk. It is only really noticeable in ''VideoGame/SilentHillOrigins'', as the protagonist had the misfortune of being a smoker AND having a sedentary job of a truck driver. Suffice to say, it limits his running time A LOT.

* ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin'' also justifies your limited sprinting ability with the player character being a heavy smoker, but you can unlock upgrades to extend the sprint gauge.

* This is played with in ''VideoGame/NeverendingNightmares''; you can run for a limited time, but calling it a "sprint" is being generous. You can only run a short distance, during which you move progressively slower and slower before stopping to have a mini asthma attack. Since there's no HUD elements, there's no actual meter; instead, you have to listen to Thomas' rattling breaths to let you know how far you've run the meter down.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' changes it so that Fatigue regenerates when standing still, and running out makes your character collapse when struck with a fatigue-draining attack (usually hand-to-hand) for a few seconds. Low Fatigue also makes melee attacks less accurate and less damaging.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' changes it so that the Fatigue regenerates when standing still, meter functions partly as this. Running and running out makes your character collapse when jumping cause it to drain rapidly, though it will replenish over time if you stand still. If being struck with by an unarmed attack or hit by a fatigue-draining attack (usually hand-to-hand) spell causes it to reach zero, you will collapse for a few couple of seconds. Low Fatigue also A low fatigue makes melee attacks less accurate more likely to miss and less damaging.makes actions (spell casting, lock picking, persuasion, etc.) more likely to fail.

* ''VideoGame/MagicalBattleArena'' has a Sprint Meter that doubles as a ManaMeter for your normal ranged attack. When [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Fate]] switches to her [[FragileSpeedster Sonic Form]], not only does her speed increase, but her Sprint Meter's rate of consumption while dashing drastically decreases as well.

Added DiffLines:

* IN ''VideoGame/LetItDie'', your stamina meter is represented by a beating heart appearing over your Fighter when you sprint, dodge, or attack. It beats faster the more you exert yourself, and your Fighter will be forced to stop and take a breather, leaving you open to attack, if you overexert yourself.

** In games that include [[PowerupMount Epona]], pressing the A button spurs her to a full gallop, which is regulated by a line of carrots (implying that feeding her vegetables acts as an organic NitroBoost) or spur icons. The meter will refill gradually when partially depleted, or all at once if fully depleted, but only after Epona slows noticeably for several seconds, which is enough to lose you the {{Racing Minigame}}s in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]''. The recommended technique for maintaining a high speed is to keep one carrot on screen at all times.
** As a first for the series, ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' has a general Stamina Meter used for sprinting (which lets you run a short distance up walls to reach somewhat higher ledges and go up steeper hills), climbing, {{spin attack}}s (but not regular attacks), carrying heavy items, [[ShiftingSandLand and keeping yourself afloat in sand]]. It takes the form of a green circle divided into wedges; especially rigorous actions take off one or more wedges at a time. (The OxygenMeter has the same design in blue.) This gives it a resemblance to the cross-section of a citrus fruit; appropriately, the Stamina Fruit pickup instantly refills the meter, giving Link the ability to run long distances in certain areas by zig-zagging from one fruit to the next.\\\
Drain the meter completely and Link can't do anything but move around slowly until the circle refills, including actions that don't normally run off the meter. There's a specific potion that slows how fast stamina is burned for three minutes, which conveniently only becomes available after you complete a dungeon with a large number of stamina-based puzzles that would be [[GameBreaker broken]] by that potion.
