What are "encouraging expressions" do you have in your native language?

For example with Korean, they say "AJA!" which means fighting. 

In Japanese, it's "GAMBATTE!"


How about in other languages?

Actually, native English speakers of the US do not mean that when they say "fighting". That's an Asian English expression. We use things like "bring it on", "go for it", "I got this", etc.

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.
