* The General is very reminiscent of Eli Wallach's earlier role, Calvera from ''TheMagnificentSeven'', who fought alongside his fellow bandits during the climax.

* ''Fanfic/GuardiansWizardsAndKungFuFighters'' has an example in [[DiabolicalMastermind Bartholomew Chang]], who absolutely refuses to let the Guardians defeat him during the fight in the subway tunnels. It takes [[spoiler: Nimue shattering his [[ShockAndAwe Gauntlet of Indra]]]] for him to finally cut his losses and run.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'', althought not villains at all, the dvergar who choose to fight the drow rather than trading with them shows this. Even after being reduced to a remnant by the desperate, fleeing dokkalfar (and later outright invading drow) and having no mana, they still are a real danger to drow trade caravans and get in a few good blows against the [[{{Ranger}} Highland Raiders]]. The last is a bit like Somali pirates attacking a US battleship in terms of power levels.

*** Of course, he is not the villain, but a human who only wanted to save his family from being enslaved. It's debatable whether he is even a villain, made more dissonant(if not outright bad plot writing) by our main character Ariel who became against cruelty and slavery a few episodes earlier ending up butchering humans who merely wanted back their families which the "innocent" Drow would sell to slavery.

* In ''VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron'', Megatron spends the first half of the game being outmatched and trying to accomplish "impossible" goals (such as controlling [[TheCorruption Dark Energon]], [[StormingTheCastle storming Autobot City]] and defeating [[HumongousMecha Omega Supreme]]) only to come out victorious in all three tasks, despite everyone (both allies and foes) pointing out that the odds are against him. In the sequel, ''VideoGame/TransformersFallOfCybertron'', he gets off to a rocky start, but soon one-man armies his way nearly to total victory.

And whatever else you can say about him, Megatron leads from the front, and shows no hesitation in trying to slug it out with whatever is against him, be it Optimus Prime, Omega Supreme or Metroplex.

* The bomb maker from the beginning of ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'' probably earns quite a few fans with his skill at LeParkour as Film/JamesBond chases him.

* ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'': Frollo gets a small moment of this in the climax, when the cathedral is under siege. He takes a sword off one of his mooks and uses it to hack through the (considerably heavy) wooden doors of the cathedral, braving a torrent of molten lead being poured down from the top by Quasimodo in doing so. When he gets to the top, he briefly wrestles with Quasi (who is half his age and demonstrably strong enough to ''shake the entire cathedral'' with his exertions) and he fights Quasi and swings with enough force to crack solid stone. Not bad for a lecherous, insane old creep.

* In ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' Loki risks his life to save Jane and his brother from the Kursed, almost getting [[ItMakesSenseInContext sucked into a black hole grenade]] in the process. In ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', he faces an army of undead warriors and [[spoiler: his sister, the [[PhysicalGod nigh-invulnerable goddess of death]], in order to save the people of Asgard.]] Possessing nerves of steel is also one of [[BigBad Hela's]] only positive traits. At the end of ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', when faced with [[spoiler: both an indestructible [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever Surtur]] and [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the prophesized destruction of Asgard]], she flinches for barely a moment before [[DefiantToTheEnd regaining her resolve]], and raising her sword to attack him.]] The fact that Hela and Loki are from the same [[ProudWarriorRace warrior culture]] and were [[spoiler: raised by the same man, who was a war god in {{Norse Mythology}}]], probably has something to do with the reason they share this trait.
