* In ''VideoGame/TotalWarWarhammer'' and ''''VideoGame/TotalWarWarhammerII'':
** Most Empire cavalry are shock cavalry meant to charge and then retreat because their lances are poorly suited to dealing with protracted melees. Demigryph Knights however are horribly tanky and able to fight high-tier infantry with no support, because in this case the beastly mount and the knightly rider are both highly efficient killing machines, while still being able to close a gap in seconds.
** Bretonnian Grail Knights, ''hands down'' the strongest cavalry in the entire game. Highly trained heroic knights turned into superhuman warriors by the mysterious empowering rituals of the Lady of the Lake, equipped with very heavy armour, magical weapons and a blessing that gives them a 20% chance to avoid ''all'' damage on any hit.
** The Vampire Counts have two qualifying units, both large monstrous creatures: Varghulfs have devastatingly strong sweeping attacks with their large forearms, they have a lot of health (which also regenerates over time) and a big charge bonus, deceptively fast for their size, and their sheer mass means they can easily shove through a battle line unless the rank is particularly deep. Terrorgheists are even worse; these dragon-sized undead bats have everything that makes Varghulfs deadly, but they can ''fly'', faster in fact than most cavalry can run even at full stride, and in ''Mortal Empires'' they even gain a [[MakeMeWannaShout sonic shriek attack]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'':
** Alex Mercer himself. Fast enough to run up walls, can tank ''anything'' Blackwatch throws at him, and possesses SuperStrength, together with the ability to [[ShapeShifterWeapon transform his limbs into an arsenal of blades, whips, claws, and clubs]].
** There are other Infected (Blackwatch Super Soldiers and Hunters) that can rival Alex's speed, strength and durability.
*** James Heller of ''VideoGame/{{Prototype 2}}'' is ''even more'' faster and stronger than Alex.

** ''Great'' Might Gaine in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsV''. He may not have the highest HP stats of the team, but with enough investment on both Great Might Gaine and [[TeenGenius his pilot]],[[note]]Who holds the special base skill: "[[TheHero Hero]]", and also the person who wavers "Bravery" with much more ease than Koji."[[/note]] his movement range, attack, and defense power are ''beyond'' enough to just casually throw him solo into the enemy horde and be the team's resident OneManArmy; able to hold the boss long enough for the big gun [[MightyGlacier Mazinger Zero]] to directly finish the boss fight.

** Great Might Gaine's ''V'' perks remained intact, with [[Anime/MashinHeroWataruSeries Ryuoumaru]] following closely on par with Great Might Gaine in terms of attack power, double pilot slot spirit commands, and wonderful dodging ability. The only down point for Ryuoumaru is his limited attack options.

** Even with little to no upgrades, Anime/GurrenLagann is one in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsX'' with Simon's high level "Potential"[[note]]Increases hit rate, evasion, and defense as HP decreases[[/note]], "Spiral Power"[[note]]Hit rate increases and final received damage is reduced. Effect rises with the skill's level. Getting Simon's ace bonus gives him the exclusive "Spiral Infinity".[[/note]], the new "Resolve" spirit command[[note]]Increases Extra Command Gauge by 5[[/note]] and Viral's support commands, Gurren Lagann will firmly be at the top of player's kill counts, especially since Simon joins [[DiskOneNuke very early in the game]]. His weaknesses however are that the Gurren Lagann's item slot only has one slot and the Gurren Lagann is an EN guzzler with two attacks that use ammo. The weaknesses go away once Simon has access to the Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann and Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann.

* Built properly, [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim the Dovahkiin]] can be an incredibly fast, [[{{BFS}} greatsword-wielding]], [[KillItWithFire fire-spewing]], [[MadeOfIron unkillable]] [[OneManArmy murder machine]]. Both the Light Armor and Heavy Armor skill trees include perks that reduce weight of armor and let a character move at full speed in full armor, and two of the Dragon Shouts you can learn let you either [[BulletTime slow down time]] ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Slow Time]]) and move incredibly fast ([[FlashStep Whirlwind Sprint]]).

* Built properly, [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'':
** Throughout
the Dovahkiin]] series, the ProudWarriorRace [[HornyVikings Nords]] are the ''physical'' Lightning Bruiser race of Tamriel. They get some of the best skill bonuses for two-handed weaponry (including [[{{BFS}} Claymores]], [[AnAxeToGrind Battle Axes]], and [[DropTheHammer Warhammers]]), which allows them to hit very hard. They also get skill bonuses toward Light Armor (fur, leather, light chainmail, etc.) which offers them protection while allowing them to move quickly around the battlefield. Finally, their natural physical endurance is among the best of any of the races. The only thing keeping them from being overpowered (and preserving a semblance of balance among the playable races) is that they are least ''magically'' inclined race in Tamriel and even have a [[DoesNotLikeMagic cultural aversion]] to it.

%% * In ''[[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Hokuto]] [[DynastyWarriors Musou]]'' Kenshiro is more of a [[GlassCannon Glass Ninja]] early on, but definitely this once he's been upgraded.

* ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' allows any player character to become this through the PointBuildSystem, but special credit goes to the Brujah [[VampireVarietyPack vampire clan]], who are unique in having access to both SuperSpeed and SuperStrength. In the [[JustifiedTutorial tutorial]], a Brujah Elder shows those powers off with a deadly FoeTossingCharge.
