\n* Castiel from ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' is this, relative to his human friends. Due to his [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angelic powers]], he can dish out and take significantly more damage than Sam or Dean and bounce back from injuries much more quickly. In one episode, Dean has him move a very large anvil for them; in another, he slices a magical sigil into his chest and then engages in combat with no ill effects from the injury. He can also teleport, allowing him to [[NoIAmBehindYou appear suddenly behind]] or [[FlashStep in the pathway]] of enemies before he smites them. Relative to other angels, however, he's either stronger or weaker depending on the rank/power level of whomever he's facing off with. Archangels can generally [[spoiler: kill him with a [[BadassFingersnap fingersnap.]]]]

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', if you are stronger than Brienne of Tarth or Sandor Clegane, they will be faster and more skilled. If you are faster ''or'' more skilled (there are almost none who could accurately claim both), they can simply brute force their way past your defenses. For that matter, Bronn describes Sandor's brother Clegane as "freakish big and freakish strong and faster than you'd think a man of his size."

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'' has the Reverse-Flash. He's a lot faster than Flash himself ''and'' he's strong enough to toss grown men around like rag dolls. Season 2 introduces Zoom who's even faster and stronger than Reverse-Flash.

* Gannicus from ''Series/{{Spartacus}}'' fits this. He's one of the smaller characters, prone to bouncing around everywhere, but it takes and incredible amount of damage to knock him down.

* Eliot Spencer in ''Series/{{Leverage}}''. The guy DoesNotLikeGuns (but is still a pro at using them). His introduction involves a flashback of a retrieval mission in the den of some mob boss with a dozen of the latter's guys armed to the teeth. A few seconds, and tons of gunshots later, we are once again shown the inside of the den with all the guys down and Eliot unharmed. In the same episode, Eliot takes out two professional security guards before a dropped bag hits the ground.* The U.S.S. ''Defiant'', first of her class, from ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' qualifies. Due to being a PintSizedPowerhouse, it's small and fleet compared to ships several times her size, but thanks to very robust powerplants (meaning very robust [[DeflectorShields shields]]), experimental hull armor, [[BeamSpam pulse phasers]], [[PhotoprotoneutronTorpedo quantum torpedoes]], she can match them evenly.

* Most of the [[SuperSerum Mirakuru]] [[SuperSoldier soldiers]] on ''{{Series/Arrow}}'' qualify as ''bruisers'', but [[spoiler: an enhanced [[Comicbook/{{Deathstroke}} Slade Wilson]]]] fits the bill to the point of being unstoppable [[spoiler: (a one-off, [[Recap/ArrowS2E23Unthinkable extremely specific]] [[BatmanGambit bluff]] notwithstanding)]].
