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 paternal 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.

* The Space Marines from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' are the masters of military Training From Hell. A typical recruit is a teenager when he endures his first trial. These trials are various but always potentially lethal: on a Feral World, the recruit could need to hunt and slay the fiercest predator on the planet, or survive in the outlands for an extended period; he could find himself in a duel with a real battle brother (a hulking monstrosity, eight feet and 800 lbs of carbon hardened bones and pure muscle mass); or the psykers of the Chapter could simply decide to MindRape him and see if he survives. If the young boy passes the trial, for years he will be gruelingly trained, cut open and stuffed with additional organs (some Chapters shun painkillers and assistance; if he dies from the wounds, he's not a good Neophyte), pumped full of drugs and conditioned by the Chapter Librarian. If he survives past his 18th birthday, he will become a full fledged Space Marine... Scout, and from there spend decades fighting until he is deemed worthy of being a SpaceMarine. Most of the recruits die; the unlucky ones are crippled for life, their mind is shattered and their planet will look at them as the living epitome of failure (some chapters use them as servants and support crew, which they're quite good at: no one wants to be the guy who let down the Chapter ''twice''). The real unlucky ones are stripped of their free will and become Servitors to the Chapter officers: FateWorseThanDeath, indeed...

** The Grey Knights make the Chaos Space Marines seem like pussies. First of all one has to be a psyker and quite powerful to even qualify for the dubious honor of choosing between being food for the Emperor or trying out for the Grey Knights. If he chooses the later he will be dropped on Titan with hundreds of thousand of other aspirants with the goal of reaching the Grey Knights Fortress Monastery thousand of miles away. The journey includes passing through all kinds of horrifying terrain, surviving the elements and horrors both real and psychic. Maybe one in one hundred thousands survives to reach the Gates of the Fortress Monastery. And this only qualifies him to begin a training more arduous then the one described above for normal Space Marines, because the aspirant must hone both his physical and psychic qualities. Maybe one in a million survive to become Grey Knights.

* 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."
