* [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Batgirl]] III (Cassandra Cain) was brought up under Training From Hell so over-the-top it entered the realm of self-parody at times. Her workout program was said to have killed or driven insane all others who tried it. Of course since it included never learning to read or speak and only having contact with one person, social maladjustment at the very least would be expected.
** When Cass trained Stephanie Brown in turn, the training mostly consisted of her being knocked down with one punch, over and over again, although this may be because at the time Cass was more interested in moping than sparring.
* Similar to Cassandra Cain, ComicBook/{{X 23}} was brought up under Training From Hell for the purpose of becoming an assassin for hire. Unlike Cassandra she was given an extensive education, although only because her handlers wanted her to be able to blend in with "normal" people to carry out missions. Of course it still causes her problems after escaping when she's actually ''trying'' to be normal, anyway.
** The training itself gets played with a bit in the events detailed in ''ComicBook/InnocenceLost'' and the follow-up miniseries, ''Target: X''. Laura's sensei certainly wasn't ''easy'' on her, but was nonetheless fair and treated her with a great deal of affection. What Rice and [[AxCrazy Kimura]] did to her, [[ColdBloodedTorture on the other hand...]]
* Deconstructed in ''ComicBook/{{Wanted}}''. The main character's initial training consists of being tied to a chair and having a guy twice his size pummel him for a few hours every day. It turns out the point was not to make him able to fight but ''willing'' to kill someone.
** This has some basis in RealLife military training programs; primarily it builds up a person's ability to handle pain and exhaustion, but it also builds up a lot of repressed anger.

* In ''BowlingKing'', this sort of training is somehow necessary to be a successful ''bowler''; Details aren't exactly forthcoming as to, like, ''why'' (other than bowling being seriously SeriousBusiness), but on his first day of training Shautieh is forced to run for over three hours straight as a warmup. Later, he's made to mime sitting down while playing mahjong with ugly women, with the stipulation that if he loses or falls down they get to kiss him.

* GIJoe, of course. This applies both to the Joes and Cobra. Most of this is merely hinted at in the character profiles, but one issue of the [[ComicBook/GIJoeARealAmericanHeroMarvel Marvel comic]] focused entirely on the training of new Joes. In addition to some grueling-but-expected training, it included having to watch a horribly boring training video about traffic safety for several hours without falling asleep.
** The Cobra file cards especially go into the horrible stuff you have to do to become an Eel or one of the the various types of Viper. In most elite Viper programs, ''surviving'' training is how you graduate. One might think that Larry Hama was exorcising some demons from his own time in the military...
* The Valiant one-shot ''Ultimate Warrior's Workout'' featured the titular wrestler revealing how he maintains maximum Destrucity. His regimen consists of lifting a giant statue, flinging cinderblocks in a stadium with enough force to wreck the place, dodging logs rolling down a steep hill, withstanding the waves of a stormy sea, and finally lifting a table covered in junk which he adds something to every time so it's heaver with every lift.
** Some of Warrior's "workouts" (the lifting the statue and table) can be seen as FridgeBrilliance since working out while off balance forces more muscles to engage, especially the core, and a stronger core helps to prevent lower back injuries.

* FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi features this as a major facet of the Duel Arc. Ami has been forced into what amounts to a thinly-veiled public execution for angering one of the dark Gods. Her opponent, a Hornered Reaper, was one she'd managed to drive off once, and even beat, but all through means that would be stripped away for the duel. As a result, Cathy, commander of Ami's personal troops, trains her in melee fighting. At one point said training included sparring against one of her employees... a young ''dragon''.

* In ''[[FanFic/SovereignGFCOrigins Origins]]'', a ''Franchise/MassEffect''[=/=]''StarWars''[[spoiler:[=/=]''[=Borderlands=]''[=/=]''[=Halo=]'']] MassiveMultiplayerCrossover, there's a whole school dedicated to this. Fittingly, [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Jack]] is one of the instructors, and it is ''expected'' that students will, in the course of training: break bones, suffer severe internal injuries, lose limbs, be OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking pay attention in class]]. It's [[MeaningfulName called the KOMBT School]], so this whole schtick isn't [[WhatDidYouExpectWhenYouNamedIt surprising]]. The rationale for allowing such ridiculously-physical training comes from [[HealingFactor bacta]] which patches any of the aforementioned torments up in a jiffy. Armando Bailey goes through a [[TrainingMontage shorter one]] as well, having to dodge disruptor blasts and blacken his hands from using his latent powers, among other things.

* In ''Manhwa/WitchHunter'', Ryuhwan takes Tasha under his wing to help him complete the training he should have received from their master before she died. He promises Tasha that he will make Tasha as strong as him in one month. How does he do this? By transporting them and their partners into a sentient pocket dimension which can memorize the physical state of objects and reset them to the state they were when they entered it. Ryuhwan demonstrates this by ''shooting Tasha in the gut three times''. When Tasha is immediately healed, Ryuhwan explains that he is going to fight Tasha to the death over and over again until Tasha's combat skills reach his level.

* In ''Manhwa/WitchHunter'', Ryuhwan takes Tasha under his wing ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' the training montage involved running through a field while being shot at by ArrowsOnFire.
* In ''Disney/MulanII'', it is averted by Mulan, who begins teaching the girls
to help him fight by telling them that one should be gentle and kind to others, in a reverse the scene with Shang from the first part of the film.
* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'':
** Po gets abused by a dummy that knocks out a tooth, gets ensnared and cooked by the training devices ("There is now a level zero"), and gets beat on by four of the Furious Five and Master Shifu. (Although it could have been worse -- if Shifu has had Tigress face Po, she would have probably killed him). This is actually a subversion at first: Shifu doesn't want Po to actually
complete the training, he wants Po to give up and go home. After Po [[HeroicResolve refuses to give up]] and Shifu changes his mind, the training he gets less hellish but still rather difficult.
** Let's not forget ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'' which reveals that Tigress punched ironwood trees for TWENTY YEARS and now feels absolutely nothing on her whole body. Keep in mind she doesn't just not feel pain, but ANYTHING. Would really suck if she wanted to get a massage, or if she and Po got together.
** There's also Tai Lung who was pushed by Shifu to train until his bones cracked. Ouch. It
should have received from their master before she died. He promises Tasha be noted that he will make Tasha as strong as him in one month. How does he do this? By transporting them and their partners into a sentient pocket dimension which can memorize the physical state of objects and reset them to the state they were when they entered it. Ryuhwan demonstrates this by ''shooting Tasha in the gut three times''. When Tasha is immediately healed, Ryuhwan explains TruthInTelevision. Serious practitioners of kung fu really ''do'' train that he is going to fight Tasha to the death over and over again until Tasha's combat skills reach his level. hard.

But about a month later, it paid off when she [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/the_dud laid Rain out in seconds flat]], from pure muscle memory.
* In ''Webcomic/OurLittleAdventure'', Angelika receives this from Candesco the [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent Nemurik]] Cleric in order to [[RPGMechanicsVerse cheat her way back to Level 8.]] She got what she wanted, but she ended up getting skewered repeatedly and nearly boiled to death during these fights.

"Young boys" reared in the hierarchical New Japan system are not only subjected to rigorous physical training, but also obliged to [[WaxOnWaxOff perform chores and menial tasks]] such as cooking, cleaning, and attending to veteran wrestlers during and after matches. Given the consistently high caliber of talented, disciplined wrestlers the company has produced over the years, the system is not without its merits.
