* Subverted in AxisPowersHetalia. Yes, Italy gets some training by [[DrillSergeantNasty Germany ]] - not that it helps anything. On the other hand, while he is a coward, he seems not to be such a bad fighter if necessary - once, before he fell under [[SternTeacher Austrias ]] rule, he managed to defeat Turkey.

* Izuku receivess his in the early chapters of ''Manga/{{MyHeroAcademia}}'' in order to make himself capable of receiving One-For-All. A slightly more realistic example, as [[MentorArchetype All Might]] creates a very strict plan for training that includes days specifically for resting, as he points out that pushing Izuku non-stop will have the opposite effect. He is very upset when he realizes that Izuku was defying that schedule, resulting in him collapsing from exhaustion halfway through training.

** Ash's Charmander was put through this by its former trainer Damien...by leaving it out in a rainstorm. Did we mention the Char evolution line ''die'' if their tail flame goes out? Brock, and pretty much everyone else, was ''pissed'' when he found out.
*** Much later, after being PutOnABus as a Charizard, it stays in the Charicific Valley where it trains alongside the strongest Charizard in the world. Every time it has returned to Ash's team since then it shows a large increase in power.

** However, the trope is also deconstructed in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''. Whis points out that Vegeta trains ''so'' hard for ''so long'' without rest that his body never properly acclimates which messes up his reaction time and stunts his potential overall. Training yourself to the point of being bedridden doesn't help you get stronger since you spend so much time in recovery.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Guts's training as a mercenary began at the tender age of six, where his [[{{Jerkass}} brute]] [[AbusiveParents adoptive father]] Gambino would make Guts train with a sword twice his size, saying that they didn't make swords for little kids. Guts continues the tradition of [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower wielding swords]] [[{{BFS}} that are as big as he]] to this day.

He self inflicted himself another especially harsh training after his encounter with Nosferatu Zodd.

* A lot of teams in ''Manga/{{Eyeshield21}}'' follow this type of training with the [[TheHero Devilbats]] taking the cake. Since they are a rookie team and only have one shot at the Christmas Bowl they spend a whole summer running from Houston to Texas (2000 km) with the back training their pass route while the linemen push a truck the whole way. The coach even warn them that this is not a safe training at all, speaking from experience as he [[CareerBreakingInjury ruined his legs pushing said truck]]. Afterward the practices are more or less regular but diligent training to keep the basics.

*** ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' has fun with this, with both Mr. Popo and Piccolo. Mr. Popo in particular is depicted as a sadistic sociopath who legitimately enjoys sending the heroes to experience death.
--->'''Piccolo''': Anyway, I figure, in order to unleash your hidden potential, I'd have to put you in immense physical danger. So I'm gonna throw you at that mountain.
--->'''Popo''': ''[when asked where his "students" were]'' I'll tell you where they're ''not'': '''safe'''.

** To get one of the ingredients from the list, Toriko had to go through the training in Shokurin Temple. Meals, that he got during the training included slimy eels, rice mixed together with tiny fragile eggs, that would ruin the flavour if just one of them breaks and beans (which he had to eat with five meter long chopsticks).
