* In the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fanfic ''FanFic/{{Rebuilt}}'', Bellatrix puts Harry through this. Her first training session involves waking him up by throwing water over him then chasing him around the lake ten times, beating him with a stick when he slows down. Harry views Lucius's efforts at teaching him to act like a lord as this, too. While not as physically violent, they involve spending ''three hours'' learning about different sorts of cutlery.

* ''Webcomic/{{Guardian}}'' shows Yuna's summoner training edge into this when the Yevonite priest has her practice water-walking over the depths, even though she's not a strong swimmer, and allows her to continue doing so even after she nearly drowns and becomes feverish. When Lulu protests, he threatens her with penance for interfering with a summoner's duty.

* In ''[[FanFic/SovereignGFCOrigins Origins]]'', a ''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 the VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic fic ''Fanfic/RemiTheGrey'', Lord Scourge puts Jedi Knight Remi Syeriy through this while teaching her to use the Dark Side. Examples include refusing to let her treat injuries, encouraging another Sith to sexually harass her, and forcing her to watch a whole shipment of slaves (including very young children) get sold off to the scum of the galaxy while tied up and completely unable to do anything to stop it.

* Deconstructed in the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "Coach Steven". Steven tries to work out extra-hard so he can be stronger, but [[RealityEnsues instead he wears himself out, and the next day he's too exhausted and sore to stand up]].

* In ''Literature/VoidDomain'', Genoa puts her daughter, Juliana, through highly realistic combat. When Juliana finds a way to defend herself better, Genoa simply stops holding back quite so much.

* In ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'', Usagi is trained in a roughly standard way, but with an exception that made it hellish for a bit: Katusuichi started hitting Usagi with a bamboo stick at random times, day and night, such as when he was asleep. Although the rabbit kitten feared his teacher had gone mad and lived in constant fear for a bit, he later noticed that he developed the lifesaving habit of being constantly alert for danger and appreciated the spirit of his teacher's training.

* 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.

* Training for [[ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum PPC agents]] is inconsistent at best, and can range from this (if you're lucky enough to get a thorough agent trainer) to [[SinkOrSwimMentor being thrown into your first mission without any instruction whatsoever]].

* Deconstructed in ''[[Fanfic/RyuugisTheGamesWePlay The Games We Play]]''. Jaune's mother put all his sisters through this sort of thing, and while they grew up to become powerful Huntresses, they're also badly traumatised by the ordeal and barely on speaking terms with her.
