* Hilariously [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan'': Everyone thinks Saitama went through this to get his [[BoringInvincibleHero ridiculous power]], but his training of "100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats, and 10km running EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!", while tough, is severely underwhelming for all that hear it.

Genos even states that for all the gravitas Saitama gives it, that's just standard strength training.

* Team 7's training in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9948266/12/Team-7-s-Ascension-Blood-Wings Team 7's Ascension]]'' ''starts'' with Kakashi throwing each of them into a different part of the Forest of Death with only a backpack of supplies (which doesn't include food or water) along with two scrolls: one containing an chakra control exercise and the other a jutsu. Their goal is to survive in there for ''eight weeks''. He also cashes in a favor the Daimyo owes his clan to have Naruto learn politics for a month, Sasuke swordsmanship (without chakra), and Sakura etiquette. Then he makes them live in a training ground that has no water, almost zero vegetation, and few animals. The trio are forced to rely on Naruto's water jutsu for water and Sasuke's Sharingan to find animals to eat.

* Fairly subverted in ''TheMiddleman'' when Wendy begins her training with Sensei Ping. After a long sequence with Ida and The Middleman telling her how strict and ruthless a teacher Sensei Ping is and how unlikely she is to survive the first day, she bounces out of the training room, out of breath but mostly unhurt, yelling, "That was AWESOME!"

** Also deconstructed in "The Test", where each of the Gems designed a chamber to put Steven through his paces mentally and physically, with Garnet's looking especially threatening (fire walls, spiked crushers, etc.). [[spoiler: It's only when a crusher stops inches before hitting Steven and he walks right through a fire wall does he realize that [[ForegoneVictory the chambers were designed to let him succeed and keep him out of danger]], even if he failed what he was supposed to do.]]

* [[InvertedTrope Turned on its head]] for Disney's ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' where the training is more of an antagonizing experience for the trainer rather than the trainee. For instance;

* There are a number of careers in ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' that have the incredibly harsh training regimes. The Legion Martien (the French Foreign Legion on Mars) leaves a trail of ruined men in its wake and the Nazis have a number of brutal training regimes with high attrition rates, some of which require surgery. The Martian warrior caste also have universally harsh training regimes but they [[MadeOfIron can take it]].

* [[WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex Providence recruits]] go through 'Pain Week' during basic training -- five days, one-hundred and twenty hours, of solid drills and exercises, with no breaks to eat or sleep. The trainer outright says that the goal of Pain Week is to force any recruit who couldn't handle fighting deadly monsters on a regular basis to quit early ... then walk down the long stairs from Providence's apparently cliff-top base and somehow get across a freaking ''desert'' to the nearest city. That's right, even the ''washouts'' get a little extra hell.

* In ''[[FanFic/HotspringSouls Slice of Souls!]]'', Ciaran's dads put her through this when she was a teenager, waking her up in the wee hours of the morning, making her run for miles, go through an obstacle course and do all sorts of strength training and CrossFit exercises to help her fix her rage and abandonment issues as well as kick her booze and drug habits.
** Artorias also went through this when he became Ciaran's apprentice.
