* 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.

* In ''Manga/{{MAR}}'', Ginta, Jack, Snow and Dorothy get trapped in the Gate of Training for 180 days. Ginta spends about twelve hours trying to break [[CrypticConversation but not destroy]] a wall by synchronizing with his arm. And Jack and Dorothy's Guardian ARM is an ugly, cranky cat lady who hates Jack. And just being stuck in another dimension with Jack is hell for Dorothy. We don't get to see much of the training after that, but in one montage, Ginta does appear to be coughing up blood, and he comes out with a scar on his face, so something that the viewer didn't see also had to happen that would qualify this as Training From Hell. So Yeah.

** The Training Gate is used at least twice more, with every fighter in Team [=MAR=] given a dose. The first time, this trope applies by combining Training Gate with Shadow Man, which makes the trainees [[FightingAShadow fight their own shadows]].

* Subverted and parodied, like virtually everything else, in ''Anime/ExcelSaga'', when {{Nabeshin}} trains Excel how to bowl in a bathroom. It was over so quickly Excel's not even sure if she underwent the promised training.

** Indirectly {{Lampshaded}} again in ''Manga/SaintSeiyaSaintiaSho'', that shows a twelfth survivor among Kido's kids-that not only failed his training, but survived only because he pledged himself to another goddess-and may actually have died and been resurrected, as he's referred as a Ghost.

** 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).

* Every single Saint in ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' endured hellish training to earn his or her Sacred Cloth -- doing finger-stands (as in, standing on the tip of your index finger) during rain and snow, punching glaciers or mountains thousands of years old and not giving up until they crumbled, doing upside-down pullups while hanging from your feet above a chasm, being chained between two rocks and being forced to push back the ocean tide with your BattleAura before you drown, that sort of thing. It gets even {{Lampshaded}} in [[AlternativeForeignThemeSong the first Italian opening]], that openly states they had to "complete tasks of rare cruelty".

"Gigantomachia" adds an eleventh survivor that failed his final task due not being crazy enough to walk inside a volcano to retrieve his Cloth).

** Piccolo begins Gohan's training by ''throwing him at a mountain''. Justified in his case only because Gohan had displayed brief bursts of incredible power triggered by anger in a prior combat situation (i.e. when he dealt a critical blow to Raditz after he beat Goku to the ground). He also had a very limited timeframe to turn Gohan from a spineless mamas boy into a competent fighter.

** In contrast, Kame-Sennin's old enemy, the Crane Master, overdoes this trope, to the point that his training focuses on nothing but pain and fighting. As a result, his students are powerful, but not nearly as well-rounded as Goku and Krillin. The only reason Tenshinhan won his fight with Goku was dumb luck, and Chao-Tzu lost outright against Krillin because Krillin outwitted him with a simple math quiz.

* ''Manga/BlackButler'' has an amusing variation in which Sebastian trains Sieglinde Sullivan on how to be a proper English lady... the ensuing montage of which is presented in the same manner as any shounen montage. As Sullivan has to this point been pampered and spoiled, this training is indicated to be just as grueling as any martial artist's.
-->'''Sullivan:''' I'm even more bound here than I was in the village!

** UpToEleven with the training at Andromeda Island and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Death Queen Island]], considered the worst ordeals of them all. Andromeda Island is the one of the ocean and chain mentioned above and is a completely barren rock, while Death Queen Island may be more liveable... And the trainer there was so insane even the one sent to Andromeda Island balked in horror. Fittingly, the two Cloths kept there were the only ones who had never been assigned a Saint until then.
