* In '[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7798790/18/Promises-of-a-Wandering-Hero Promises of a Wandering Hero]]'', in order to prepare Motoko to face her sister Tsuruko in combat in three years, Shirou trains her by fighting Motoko at slightly above her level. If by the end of the spar, she hasn't hit him once, he goes all out and beats the hell out of her. They do this every day: first thing in the morning, and again after dinner. Despite being in amazing shape, the training is rough enough that Motoko throws up afterwards.

* Brody is put through this to unlock his psychic powers in ''ComicBook/BrodysGhost'', a training that included weeks of constant exercise, learning combat, and being subjected to what was essentially torture (ten days of ''uninterrupted'' isolation, for example.)

* Played with in ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/362591/knights-of-the-realm Knights of the Realm]]'': the training Twilight Sparkle, Sunset Shimmer and Trixie undergo a terrifying training under Princess Celestia from a young age to become Knights of the Realm, but the training is just as bad on ''Celestia'' due her apprentices getting progressively crazier and causing increasing amounts of damage (at one point Twilight Sparkle destroyed ''half of Canterlot'').

It was so bad that, when new apprentice Knights appeared, Celestia fostered the job on the three Knights because she's still traumatized.
** Played straight with the new apprentices' training, whose ''easiest'' exercise is to pull a wagon (each) loaded with an absurdly heavy cargo. And that's the basic training meant to ''[[UpToEleven prepare them for the real training]]''. In all fairness, Twilight, Sunset and Trixie ''did'' warn them it would have been that bad (and [[spoiler:Rainbow Dash]] already knew it)...

** 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.

* Simlarly, Wrestling/AllJapanWomensProWrestling's dojo. American wrestler Leilani Kai, who trained there, said:
--> "We got up at 5 a.m. Running and skipping rope were a big part of our conditioning program. We would take the same bumps over and over. Each day we gave and took a hundred body slams. Our trainers also taught us kick boxing and the use of martial arts weapons. Before going to Japan I thought I had good wrestling skills. The skills that were learned in Japan were extreme to me. [[TheFabulousMoolah Moolah]]'s school was the best school in the U.S. The skills learned in Japan started where Moolah's school left off."

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': Judges undergo a fifteen year training programme at the Academy of Law. Minor infractions (such as crying) can result in expulsion. Regular sessions in a DeadlyTrainingArea occur where cadets are trained in live fire conditions. After ten years, cadets undergo a "Hotdog Run"; a training mission in the Cursed Earth, a lawless wasteland that is the result of nuclear war. At the end of their training, they must undergo an on street assessment with a senior judge, which involves going on patrol and passing sentences on crimes. Minor mistakes can result in automatic failure. Even a near perfect patrol doesn't guarantee a rookie their full eagle, especially if a rookie is assigned to Dredd.

** The Law Academy in the dimension that the [[EvilCounterpart Dark Judges]] hail from is even worse. Primarily because a cadet in Joe Dredd's dimension, should they fail their evaluations, are simply kicked out of the academy and become citizens; on Deadworld they would have been shot. No surprise, since they were trained to become [[RabidCop effective killers and torturers]] more than simply [[ByTheBookCop cops trying to keep the peace]]. It was apparently pretty standard for tutors to mutilate their students in order to raise morale.

* [[InvertedTrope Turned on its head]] for Disney's ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' where the training is worse for the trainer rather than the trainee. For instance;
-->'''Phil:''' ''[whilst standing next to a line of targets]'' Rule number 95 kid; concentrate!\\
''[Hercules throws several knives which all very nearly impale Phil in the next shot]''\\
'''Phil:''' Rule number 96; AIM!!



* Some parts of Disney/{{Mulan}}'s training montage qualify as Training From Hell -- particularly climbing the pole to retrieve the arrow, breaking flat stones with their heads, hopping across several poles planted above a river, and ''dodging dozens of FlamingArrows''.
