* ''ComicBook/MortadeloYFilemon'': '''And HOW!''' The list of accidents they have survived [[UpToEleven is basically endless]]:



** In ''Secuestro Aéreo'', Mortadelo landed a jet airliner... at 800 kilometers per hour, without deploying the landing gear, and crashing it against the airport's control tower.

-->'''Mortadelo:''' ''(after being rescued by Filemón when a bird attempted to eat him while he was in an insect disguise)'' What a dreadful experience, boss! I've seen its esophagus, its craw and its sternum... from '''inside'''!

*** Once they broke an old fortune-teller's crystal ball... which prompted the old fortuneteller to reveal she was actually a buff thug in disguise. Cue Mortadelo and Filemón on their graves on a graveyard, apparently alive ("How are you doing, boss?" "Meh, [[BlackComedy kinda chilly in here]].) After escaping their graves, Filemón [[NoFourthWall tells]] [[AsideGlance the reader]] "[[YouDontWantToKnow You don't want to know]] how we did this." On the background we see an archangel chiding St. Bartholomew "I don't care if you're a fan of Mortadelo! The rules are clear; no miracles!"
*** They also died at the end of an episode of the old animated series by Estudios Vara. They were caught on a nuclear explosion (after reaching an island with a [[TooDumbToLive giant bullseye]] painted on the ground). Then we see Mortadelo and Filemón [[WingedSoulFliesOffAtDeath flying to Heaven, complete with tunic, halo and wings]].
*** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Mortadelo on "¡Elecciones!" after falling off the building when trying to get into Ofelia's apartment to investigate her:
-->Come on, boss, it was just an 11th floor! We've been through worse!

** It's implied in ''Punisher: Born'' that Castle's near-inhuman ability to survive damage that would kill anyone else is that he made an unconscious pact with [[TheGrimReaper death]] during UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar that would let him continue to fight a war that never ended - for a price.

* Quite a few characters from ''ComicBook/TheBadEggs'' manage to survive seemingly fatal incidents. Ript is eviscerated and later stomped on by a ''Brontosaurus'' (in the same issue, no less), and neither of these injuries seriously damages him.

* It's actually pretty common that when comic book characters fight, characters with superpowers take superpowered hits without serious injury, ''even though their superpowers have nothing to do with superhuman strength or endurance''. I.E. a character whose ability is to shoot EyeBeams can be punched through a concrete wall, pick themselves back up, and continue fighting as though nothing happened.

Ditto for BadassNormal characters whose equipment doesn't include heavy body armor.

* {{Taskmaster}}. Neither getting rammed by a speeding car, nor shot repeatedly, nor being kicked in the face by an enraged {{Spider-Man}} so hard that his body punches an economy-sized hole through the (in all likelihood heavily armoured) wall of the armoury in his hideout/gym will do more than slow him down momentarily.

* ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' subteam ''[[ComicBook/NewMutants The New Mutants]]''. Roberto [=DaCosta=] has super-strength, but not super-durability. He's explicitly just as vulnerable as any Joe [=SixPack=]... but somehow still survives nonsense like getting tackled through a brick wall. A degree of superhuman durability is pretty much a RequiredSecondaryPower for any character possessing superhuman strength, as super-durable muscle fibers would necessarily result in super-durable muscle tissue, protecting most everything but the eyes.

* Many characters in Creator/FrankMiller's ''SinCity'' exhibit this trait to an incredible degree. Made of Iron is probably Miller's all-time favorite character trope for male protagonists. He just loves guys who can take an appalling level of punishment from vastly superior opponents through force of will, strength of character, or just innate badassery.
