* Link gets a moment like this near the end of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker''. After Link [[spoiler: meets up with Ganondorf for his last battle, the Gerudo rushes over and beats the stuffing out of Link. Thankfully, Zelda awakes, and the fight soon commences.]] Then, at the end of his [[spoiler:sword-to-swordfight with Ganondorf and some assistance from Zelda]], Link [[spoiler:sends the Master Sword through Ganondorf's head, jumps back, and proceeds to bend over and collapse into the approaching Zelda's arms.]] But after a fight like that, who wouldn't be tired?

** The final retrievable memory of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' shows [[spoiler:a very battered and exhausted Link defending Zelda from a huge wave of Guardians with a rusted and decayed Master Sword. Zelda is fortunately able to awaken her RoyaltySuperPower at this moment of desperation to deactivate all the Guardians, but Link ultimately falls after that, requiring Zelda to have him placed in the [[HealingVat Shrine of Resurrection]] for the next century to heal.]]

* In the 2012 Australian Open [[UsefulNotes/{{Tennis}} tennis]] final, [[{{Tennis}} Novak Djokovic]] and [[{{Tennis}} Rafael Nadal]] played such a grueling and merciless match that completely obliterated the former record for longest Grand Slam final with a length of ''six hours'' that Djokovic's dramatic collapse to the floor after a 31-ball rally in the fifth set looked like more than just his usual theatrics. To top it off, the match left both Djokovic and Nadal so physically drained afterwards that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhCzXwdUs_U they visibly struggled to stay upright during the lengthy closing speech]] with Nadal having to lean on the net for support and Djokovic all but on his knees before chairs were brought out for them.

* The cast of ''Manga/InuYasha'' get this a ''lot''. One example is when Inyasha is human and must fight the Peach Man. During that time, he is shrunk, eaten, thrown back up, bled, tossed around, and fell from a cliff. Not even Sesshoumaru is [[NotSoInvincibleAfterAll immune]]. He finally comes up against an enemy that [[TheStrategist knows how to fight]] a [[HandicappedBadass one-armed man]] [[spoiler: - by [[BadassInDistress tearing that arm to shreds]], then entwining him in tentacles to [[ShootTheHostage prevent Inuyasha from using his sword]], before finally stabbing him through the chest]].
--> '''Inuyasha:''' ''[to Sesshoumaru]'' You just stay back! This isn't the place for an injured person!

** In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11536013/17/Hyperemesis-gravidarum Hyperemesis Gravidarum]]'', she has to fight off an assailant whilst heavily pregnant. [[UpToEleven Sure enough]], she gets strong labour pains. During the fight. Things might have gone badly if it wasn't for a last-minute intervention by PapaWolf, a man determined to become a grandfather.

** Also an example: ''that duel itself.'' She was already a wreck when she staggered into the Parliament session to denounce the BigBad in front of everybody, and ''then'' he tried to outfox her by demanding a duel when she was clearly in no state to fight. He was one of the most accomplished duelers on the planet, and she had never so much as picked up a sword until she came to Grayson. [[BadAss She killed him in one stroke.]]

* When ''Series/{{Angel}}'' loses his soul for the umpteenth time, his sidekick calls in [[TheAtoner fallen Slayer]] Faith to hunt him down. This might have been a short fight, since Angel has a long record of getting soundly beaten every time he fights a Slayer (Faith herself managed to bounce him ''off the ceiling'' while attempting SuicideByCop) so before the big fight she gets beaten to a bloody pulp by TheJuggernaut. Oh, and [[spoiler: gives herself a massive dose of magical opiates]]. She still nearly beats him, because Slayers are just that BadAss.

* Multiple times during the finale of the ''FanFic/TamersForeverSeries'', several people say this to the dying [[spoiler: Takato]], right before he does something insanely BadAss.

** At the end of the fight he appears to [[{{Badass}} remain unflinching]] as an enemy attack comes flying towards his face only to stop mere inches away. His PostVictoryCollapse reveals he ''probably couldn't have dodged even if he wanted to.''

* In the very-first episode of ''{{Thundercats}}'', the Mutants invade the Thundarian flagship, seeking to steal the Sword of Omens, and particularly the Eye Of Thundara set in its hilt. When they find it, it lies in the hands of a young Lion-O, and when he tries to threaten them, they laughingly reply that "You can barely hold that sword, much less lift it." Which is, of course, the sword's cue to [[PowerGlows start glowing]]. Moments later, Lion-O is swinging the full-sized sword around despite his young age, and the Mutants are running scared.
