The power to fight with full strength despite being near death. Sub-power of Enhanced Survivability. Not to be confused with Lifeless Continuation or Survival Empowerment.

Also Called

  • Ultimate Perseverance


User can fight and defend oneself at full strength even after being nearly killed or near death, allowing them to fight even when they shouldn't be able to (such as crippling/massive or mortal injuries, missing limbs, missing/removed organs, major blood loss, etc.).

Unlike Survival Empowerment, the user is already fighting at full strength the entire time rather than getting stronger after being near death.




  • Doesn't suppress pain, so the user will still feel all their injuries.
