* '''Zig Zagged''': Alice gives up, but it turns out to be a trick to give the enemy a false sign of security. So they fight her again and this time, she really does seem to give up. But then it turns out to be part of another plan...
* '''Averted''': Alice surrenders, but only after a fair amount of fighting.
* '''Enforced''': "Alice is TheHero, right? Heroes never give up!"
* '''Lampshaded''': "I never give up, even in spite of overwhelming odds!"
* '''Invoked''': A villain keeps on fighting Alice, knowing that she'll never give up - he's hoping she will fight herself to death.
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''': A massively powerful villain forces Alice to surrender.
* '''Discussed''': "This is the sixtieth time we're attacking Emperor Evulz. Her constant stamina is very tiring, don't you think?"
* '''Conversed''': "Wow, character Alice just never really seems to give up! I wish I was more like her".



** Alice sustains heavy injury in battle, and refuses to retreat and regroup while there's still a fight to be won. Her weakened condition quickly proves detrimental, and leads to a swift defeat for her side.

* '''Played for Drama''': Along with her soldiers, Alice charges Emperor Evulz his men, despite the enemy having overwhelming odds. She could've waited a little longer to gain more soldiers, but she didn't do so, being too determined to destroy the enemy. The men keep on fighting, until eventually, they all rout and Alice is the only one standing...

* '''Played for Laughs''': Emperor Evulz sees Alice charging his men all by herself. Because of the fact he knows she'll never give up, he's afraid, although his odds are overwhelming - in fact, he can be seen shouting for his mummy.
