* Sharon Kulikov from ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' was apparently put through this -- by her own father, no less. Ironically [[spoiler:the training doesn't help much when she gets into a confrontation and takes an axe to the back of the head, though her training didn't really involve combat techniques.]] Barry Coleson High's baseball and football teams also apparently went through an extremely rigorous training regime -- described as military-esque -- that would've cost their coach his job if it weren't for the fact that they're very highly skilled teams because of said training. The baseball team's practices apparently involve three miles' worth of laps around the entire campus at the start, hundreds of the same drills over and over, physical workouts, and being forced to do eighty pushups every time the player makes a mistake.

** Season Five has the Daughters of Aku, an AmazonBrigade of assassins who were born and raised for the sole purpose of killing Jack. Training ranged from being forced to fight a giant muscular woman as children to being shot with flaming arrows in the dark to hone their senses. The result is that they are brutally efficient and far more dangerous than the typical foes that Jack faces.

** Season Five has the Daughters of Aku, an AmazonBrigade of assassins who were born and raised for the sole purpose of killing Jack. Training ranged from being forced to fight a giant muscular woman as children to being shot with flaming arrows in the dark to hone their senses. They are not allowed to see the outside world, any distractions are punished with repeated punches to the face, and their final test is a battle to the death with their mothers (except for the High Priestess, who stays alive to declare their training complete). The result is that they are brutally efficient and far more dangerous than the typical foes that Jack faces.

* In ''FanFic/ThroughTheCrackedMirror'', Mukuro provides some details on what her training in Fenrir was like. [[YouAreNumberSix She was only referred to as 35]] and awakened every day at 4AM with a bucket of ice water, then told to run it off. Out of the 35 recruits her group started out with, only 10 survived it all.

** 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 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.

** Toph shows up again in Season 4 and offers to help Korra get out of her post-Season 3 HeroicBSOD. She subjects Korra to much of the same verbal abuse she subjected Aang to while also beating the snot out of the younger Avatar. While she did it mostly [[ItAmusedMe because it was fun]], her actions did set Korra on the path to healing both physically and mentally.

Frequently occurs in a DeadlyTrainingArea sometimes combined with a BatmanColdOpen (or DangerRoomColdOpen in the case of groups). For Training From Hell for a whole army, see TheSpartanWay. For the parental or parental figure version see ToughLove. May result in SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining if done from childhood. See also ImprovisedTraining, when they have no equipment or money with which to train. See LookWhatICanDoNow for the aftermath.

* [[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.
* The Danger Room from the various incarnations of ''Comicbook/XMen''.

* 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''.

It's [[MeaningfulName called the KOMBT School]], so this whole schtick isn't [[WhatDidYouExpectWhenYouNamedIt surprising]].

* 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.
