* In ''LightNovel/YoujoSenki'', Tanya puts the recruits for her prospective rapid-response flight-mage wing through a grueling training course that combines ''several'' RealLife examples including the Navy SEAL's Hell Week. They are bombarded with ''live'' artillery shells during the training as well. The twist is that Tanya ''wants'' them to fail because she wants to delay actually going out on the field as long as possible. Ideally, she wants the top brass to give up on the idea and give her a safe desk job. Unfortunately (for her) not a single one washes out of the training, leaving her with no excuse. She takes comfort in the fact that she's now got top-quality human shields and assistants to ensure her survival on the battlefield.

** Just as bad as the two above is the one in Sicily: while the place is luscious, the teacher there was [[BloodKnight Cancer]] [[CardCarryingVillain Deathmask]], a sadistic SocialDarwinist with an enormous body count. That, and it's the one with the Cloth kept inside a volcano (specifically Mount Etna).

Also, the Cloth [[spoiler:acts as a seal to [[EldritchAbomination Typhon]], so when Mei ''did'' walk in to retrieve it while Deathmask was away [[DemonicPossession he was possessed]]]]. To be fair, either ''nobody'' knew the last part or someone did and Deathmask was the teacher specifically because he has the power set to deal with such things, only for Mei to be an idiot and do the ''really'' risky part unsupervised.

\n* ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'':
** Despite its shounen trappings, the series usually averts this - more than once, characters have compromised their effectiveness or put themselves out of action by overdoing the training. That's not to say there aren't straight examples, though their risk is usually mitigated. The worst example being dodging fireballs from a true Dragon in the wilderness for weeks on end while said dragon is quite happy to ambush the trainee while eating or sleeping - the two recipients are Issei (who was already sturdy enough to weather the near-misses and was completely aware he had a dragon-based ability of his own that he could only master by being pushed that far) and Riser (functionally unkillable).
** As the group's general power level rises, though, so does the risk inherent in their normal regimen. When Kiba reveals to Issei that the former's sparring blows were capable of killing him anyway, the pair agree for Issei to stop checking his punches so they both get more from the exercise - they trust each other's skills that much.

* Subverted in Webcomic/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 Austria's]] rule, he managed to defeat Turkey.

** Played straight with America under Prussia, though.

** 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, which is very much TruthInTelevision.

* Spoofed to the point of utter ridiculousness in ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan'', where during the House of Evolution Arc, Saitama reveals just how he became strong to defeat anything in one punch. His answer: "100 Push ups, 100, Sit Ups, 100 squats and 10 Kilometer run every day, with no breaks or air conditioning!" This is so ridiculous in that Genos calls it "complete Bullshit."

This While a bit tough for your average couch potato, this level of training is ''far'' more lenient than what most athletes go through on a daily basis. The idea that that regimen is what granted Saitama his strength so ridiculous in that Genos calls it "complete Bullshit.bullshit."

* Goemon Ishikawa from ''Franchise/LupinIII'' has always been fanatical about keeping his ImplausibleFencingPowers sharp through training. But in ''Anime/GoemonIshikawasSprayOfBlood'', after losing a battle to hitman named Hawk, he has a brief HeroicBSOD before pushing himself to extremes not seen before in the series. The self-inflicted training involves waterfalls, fire, and sharks. By the end, his hands are bleeding and barely able to grip his sword.

** They have nothing on Netero's personal training methods. 10,000 punches a day for years. To remind the reader, Netero is over 100 years old and he performed this training basically non stop for ''half'' his lifespan.
