* 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.

** This is sometimes subverted, as several older incarnations (''TheDarkKnightReturns'', ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'', ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'') are noticeably [[DentedIron battered by the years of combat]]. ''Kingdom's'' Bats must use a full-body exoskeleton just to get around.

* Subverted to tragic effect in an issue of ''ElfQuest'', where a couple of boys from a human tribe throw a stone from a sling to knock an elf off of a high tree branch, believing that elves are indestructible. They're not. The elf breaks his back. [[spoiler:The elves ''do'' have magical healers, but the injured elf is found and killed by the boys' grown-up relatives.]]

* ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' subteam ''[[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.

** Both Nick Fury and Tony Stark keep extensive files on all known superhumans, and it's a indication of how dangerous they consider him to be in that ''both'' of them keep a file on the Punisher. Both of them make a point of commenting that Frank has a nearly psychopathic ability to tolerate pain.

* Despite all the punishment that ''[[ComicBook/TheFoxHunt The Fox]]'' goes through, outside of a black eye here and a bruise there, Paul Patton Jr. never really seems to be the worse for wear. Mind you, he doesn't even ''have'' superpowers.
