** Shizuo Heiwajima. The man gets stabbed in both legs ''and'' his hand and remarks "Doesn't even hurt." He didn't even bother to take out the pens he was stabbed with, figuring they'll just cause a bloody mess. Later, he is shot in the leg and gut and ''thinks he slipped in the rain'' until he sees the blood. Afterwards he simply walks to Shinra's apartment, and is still unfazed by his normally life-threatening wounds. Shizuo's apparent superhuman endurance is acknowledged in canon: [[BackAlleyDoctor Shinra]] ''hates'' treating Shizuo, because he never leaves an operation without destroying at least one of his best scalpels in the process. Shizuo's body isn't Made of Iron: ''it's harder than it''. That said, Shizuo came about his body ''the hard way''. As Episode 7 elaborates, his body doesn't know its limits, so he's been breaking his bones and tearing his muscles in overexertion all throughout his childhood and adolescence, creating a unique case of "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."

That same Shinra who ''hates'' operating on him was ''utterly fascinated'' with him when they were growing up.

** Mention must also be given to [[MagnificentBastard Izaya]] [[KnowledgeBroker Orihara]] who is the regular target of Shizuo's inhuman rage. In their first on-screen confrontation, Shizuo nails Izaya by chucking and hitting him ''in the head'' with a vending machine so hard Izaya is thrown several feet. The [[FurAndLoathing snazzily-dressed]] KnifeNut just ''gets up like nothing happened.''

Shizuo gets some serious blows on him, and while he keeps fighting for a while, Izaya eventually has to be carried off while Shizuo is distracted. If sequel manga are to be believed, he suffered multiple broken bones and is currently confined to a wheelchair; the fight ''finally'' put the fear of Shizuo into him.]]

** Shizuo Heiwajima. The man gets stabbed in both legs and remarks "Doesn't even hurt." Later, he is shot in the leg and side and ''thinks he slipped in the rain'' until he sees the blood. Afterwards he simply walks to Shinra's house, and is still unfazed by his normally life-threatening wounds. Shizuo's apparent superhuman endurance is acknowledged in canon: [[BackAlleyDoctor Shinra]] ''hates'' treating Shizuo, because he never leaves an operation without destroying at least one of his best scalpels in the process. Shizuo's body isn't Made of Iron: ''it's harder than it''.

* Given the amount of [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale abuse]] that Keitaro takes in ''Manga/LoveHina'', it's a good thing that he is seemingly [[ImmortalLifeIsCheap immortal]]. From the very day he entered Hinata-Sou, he's been at the receiving end of countless [[MegatonPunch Naru Punches]] from Naru, [[CleanCut Rock-Splitting Slashes]] from Motoko, [[DynamicEntry flying kicks to the head]] from Su. Not to mention attacks from turtle-based mecha (again from Su), kicks to the shin (Sara), and a Frying Pan to the head (Shinobu). [[spoiler: The only time he suffers physical damage that laster for more than a page happens when he breaks his leg... after falling off the rooftop, which would normally kill or seriously harm anyone else.]] [[spoiler: Actually the ROOFTOP fell on HIM!!]]

** Over the course of the anime and movies, Ash has been electrocuted, burned, had a chandelier dropped on him, [[TakenForGranite petrified]] at least once, ''eaten by a tree'' (long story), and much more. The worst he ever gets is several cuts and bruises.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': More like Made of Rubber, but this is the real reason Keroro survives Natsumi's abuse. Keronians are shown to be particularly flexible, never needing more than bandages and maybe a crutch for their injuries (unless the plot requires otherwise), to the extent that the human children can survive very high falls ''by landing on Keronians.''
