-->On one memorable occasion, however, Al sold four chairshots as if he were Franchise/{{Superman}} taking a SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor punch to the solar plexus. Bam. The Road Dogg nailed Al with a chair, and down he went. Amazingly, Al was up within seconds and he was laughing. Bam--another shot, another fall, another laugh. Then another, then another. The boys in the back were irate. When Al came back, I was the first to ask him about his new superhuman powers. Amazingly, Al pleaded innocent. "I don't remember a thing after the first one," He said with a slight slur in his words. "I was knocked out."

* During the CarnivalOfKillers in ''Manga/{{Arachnid}}'', [[CreepyCockroach cockroach]][[AnimalMotifs -themed]] assassin Oki Megumi gets beaten down by Geji, but unconsciously [[ConfusionFu runs and attacks at random]] to overcome her. Once she wakes up, she explains she was taught that as part of a TrainingFromHell by her master Kabutomushi, but the usual narration for this series makes it much more colorful by going into [[ItRunsOnNonsensoleum an analogy about how cockroaches have multiple brains.]]

* A rather horrifying real life case was the boxing match between Vince Pettway and Simon Brown. Brown was knocked out with a nasty left hook, collapsed to ground, and while lying flat on his back his arm continued making punching motions into the air. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wNrB_V3PFc Link for the curious.]]
** Similar but less dramatic was a bout with Jimmy Thunder and Crawford Grimsley. Grimsley was KO'd with [[SingleStrokeBattle literally the first punch of the fight]], and medical personnel rushed to the ring to help him. A semi-conscious Grimsley had to be restrained from punching at the medical people attending him while still on the canvas. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJLA_e8gOds Link here.]]

* Taken to silly levels(like everything else) in Manga/RanmaOneHalf; the titular martial artist ''cannot'' be struck in hi/r sleep, instinctively dodging and ducking attacks. OTOH, Akane tosses and turns in her sleep, pummeling anyone stupid enough to crawl into her bed. [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/26203/1/Every-Attack-aka-The-Only-Two-Who-Fit One author]] has noted that they'd probably share a bed quite comfortably.

* Subverted in one issue of ''ComicBook/ThePunisher MAX''. Frank shoots ImplacableMan Pittsy in the face with a shotgun, after which he takes a few steps forward. Frank says "Reflexes. Gotta be." Sure enough, Pittsy's corpse falls down.

* Subverted in ''DGrayMan'' when Krory fights Jasdevi. He has been trapped in an Iron Maiden, is unconscious if not nearly dead, and has lost the fight no matter how you look at it. [[YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle The twist?]] His ''own blood'' [[NightmareFuel independently comes out of his body and takes a human shape]] to continue the fight.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'': Natsu at one point fights with [[TheRival Gray]] while sleeping. Characters around them promply [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] it.
* Occurs often in HajimeNoIppo when a fighter most notably Ippo and Sendo will continue to box through muscle memory even after he's been knocked unconscious.
* Slightly unclear case: in the ''LoneWolfAndCub'' manga, [[spoiler:Itto [[DiedStandingUp dies standing up]] while wrestling with [[BigBad Retsudo]] for a sword in the midst of their DuelToTheDeath. It gradually dawns on Retsudo that this has happened, so he lets go of the sword and steps out of sword range. After a number of beat panels, Itto finally collapses]].
* On the ''VideoGame/MegaManMaverickHunterX'' OVA X gets impaled with a light saber and given a Hannibal Lecture, he has a flashback, finds some [[TheDeterminator courage to keep fighting]] , and reacts for a brief moment, enough to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome pass ''through'' Sigma's Saber and cause him]] [[ScarsAreForever his signature Scar]](at least on [[ContinuityReboot this version]]), when Sigma reacts and was going to attack, notices X is now immobile (he kind of stabbed him right into his energy generator or something like that) so he retires, satisfied as he witnessed the [[MechanicalEvolution Hidden Potential]] Dr. Cain talked about.
* In ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'', Subaru demonstrates the ability to fight even while knocked unconscious. However, this has less to do with her determination and more with her AI-equipped magical Device seamlessly taking control of her body while she is out cold.
* In ''{{Naruto}}'', during Rock Lee's battle with Gaara, Gaara completely pummels Lee. Right before he goes in to make the killing move, Lee's master, Guy, jumps in to save him. However, Lee stands back up, ready to fight once more. When Guy looks into his eyes, though, he realizes that his pupil has lost consciousness, still wanting to fight even after it's over.

* ''PrincessMononoke'' featured [[spoiler:the detached head of wolf goddess Moro wiggling across the ground and biting the arm off of her ArchEnemy, Lady Eboshi]].
* In the ''SoulEater'' anime [[spoiler: Maka is knocked unconcious and begins using her previously unknown [[EquippableAlly weapon bloodline]] abilities to attack]] in the final battle against the BigBad. He realises she's even more dangerous in this state and and wakes her up [[spoiler: forcing her to invoke ThePowerOfFriendship instead]].
* ''Anime/StreetFighterIIV'', During the final segment of a cage match between Ken and Vega, Ken uses his [[DragonPunch shoryuken]] to send Vega flying into the chandelier above, knocking him unconscious. Vega briefly regains consciousness, long enough to take aim at Ken, and lets gravity do the rest as he passes out; which leads to the following monologue:
-->'''Ken:''' *looks on in amazement, thinking* "You're unbelievable, Vega. Unconscious, yet still you come after me."
* Happens sometimes in ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple''. It happened to Kenichi during his final epic battle against Shou Kanou on the [[TournamentArc "D of D tournament"]]. While he was fighting unconscious, the lack of moral inhibitions made Kenichi actually noticeably stronger, which amused his EvilCounterpart opponent.
* Juza in ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' gets back up on his feet [[spoiler:after Raoh ''kills him'', and his corpse refuses to fall down. It actually takes Raoh some time to realize his opponent is already dead.]]
* During his final battle with Shishio, [[RurouniKenshin Kenshin]] is knocked down but gets back on his feet, and is shown with BlankWhiteEyes to emphasize how he's really unconscious. One of the observers comments how this shows how determined Kenshin is.
* {{InuYasha}} does this once, against Sesshomaru. After allowing himself to be [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice stabbed through the stomach]] in order to retrieve the Tetsusaiga ([[UnintentionalBackupPlan for a given value of "allowed"]]), he quickly staggers and falls to one knee, bracing himself with his sword to keep from collapsing. Sesshomaru notices that Inuyasha's eyes have gone unreflective, and that he has clearly passed out; however, as soon as [[ButtMonkey Jaken]] steps towards him, his grip tightens on the Tetsusaiga and the ground in front of him explodes. Only after they leave does he allow himself to collapse [[OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank in a pool of his own blood]].
* Variation in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', when Accelerator continues fighting Amata Kihara even after his electrode-transmitter thing runs out of juice (cutting him off from his powers). Without that electrode's help, he is severely brain-damaged, lacking the cognitive function to even walk or speak, or even understand others' speech. He just hates Kihara ''that much'' and continues fighting, albeit ineffectively [[spoiler:until he [[LimitBreak Awakens]], that is]].
* OnePiece. After Luffy defeats him, Don Krieg takes this a step further by being able to go on a rant about how no one beats him. He's then completely knocked out by his second in command.
