* All the Kryptonians in Film/ManOfSteel. {{Superman}} himself is a certified FlyingBrick, and while [[SuperSoldier Zod and Faora]] are trained warriors and outclass him in skill, he's shown to [[UnskilledButStrong outstrip them in raw power]] thanks to his long exposure to Earth's sun. [[TheDragon Faora]] takes it a step further and liberally employs FlashStep.

** The Film/{{DC Extended Universe}} iteration of Batman also qualifies, at least by [[BadassNormal human standards]]. At one point, he's seen clearing house on twenty mooks in no time and demonstrates skill, agility, speed and strength with a fighting display straight out of the Arkham games. Keep in mind that this is the ''oldest Batman to be depicted in live action to date''.
** {{Wonder Woman}} more than earns this. While lacking flight, she is no slouch in the speed department with her incredible jumps and reflexes.[[spoiler: During the climactic battle with Doomsday, she's able to more than keep up with the behemoth, block its blows and comes away unscathed.]]
** Doomsday takes Kryptonian strength and amps it UpToEleven in an body of pure rage.

** The iconic Millennium Falcon definitely fits this trope. It's fast enough to keep up with smaller fighters, tough enough to tank hits from star destroyers, and packed with enough firepower to wipe out entire squadron of TIE fighters. Even [[Film/TheForceAwakens 30 years after it's last major combat outing]], it can shrug off the scorching heat and rough sandstorms of Jakku, withstand the frigid coldness of the Starkiller planet, and can even plow through an entire forest without any real damage. Who knew that a scoundrel and his Wookie friend could turn a dull civilian freighter into a CoolStarship that can outperform even military-grade capital ships and fighters.

* Gru from ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe''

* Gru from ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe''''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'' has great reaction speed, an impressively quick dash, is fairly skilled in hand-to-hand combat, possesses several inventions with great destructive power like his FreezeRay, and is remarkably good at getting back up after taking serious abuse, as per IronButtMonkey standards
* ''Disney/{{Moana}}''
** [[GiantEnemyCrab Tamatoa]] is a fifty-foot crustacean who dances around his lair at speeds more appropriate for a creature approximately a 50th of his size. He hits like a body-building dinosaur and is unfazed by hits from [[SuperStrength Maui]] in their battle.
** [[SemiDivine Maui himself]] is strong enough to lasso the sun and pull up islands with his hook, can get knocked around by monsters several times his size and run on lava, and is surprisingly quick for his size.

* Agents in ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' are strong enough to punch holes in concrete, tough enough to survive falls off a skyscraper and fast enough to dodge bullets. The human resistance are this as well within the Matrix, but to a lesser degree, Neo's speed matching Agent Smith's is one of the first signs that he is The One. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] because they exist in a simulated environment where the laws of physics don't apply.

** And in ''Film/JurassicWorld'', the genetic chimera known as ''Indominus rex'' takes this UpToEleven, largely because it is in fact based on ''T. rex'' DNA, along with a few other things (like [[spoiler:[[RaptorAttack ''Velociraptor'']]]]).

* The Franchise/{{Terminator}} is fast, superhumanly strong, ''and'' incredibly tough, and the later movies showed them getting progressively faster and meaner. Between the [[Film/TheTerminator original]], [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay Uncle Bob]], the [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay T-1000]], the [[Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines T-X]], [[Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles Cameron, Cromartie, Catherine Weaver]], and Marcus, there's no shortage of these tough, fast, and very literal killing machines.

* [[Film/ConanTheBarbarian2011 The 2011 version]] of Conan. The film is much TruerToTheText when it comes to the legendary barbarian's fighting style than the Arnie ones, and while he believably comes off as CharlesAtlasSuperpower incarnate; despite being played by the very muscular and 6'4" tall Creator/JasonMomoa, he also demonstrates all the ferocity, speed and agility that makes the character TheDreaded in Howard's stories.
