* In ''Film/SleepingWithTheEnemy'', Laura and husband Martin go out for a sailing trip with a neighbor. When a storm flares up, Laura falls overboard, and when her life jacket is found, she is presumed drowned. As it turns out, Laura ''jumped'' overboard and swam to shore to escape her abusive husband. Swam miles in the dead of night, through a vicious storm, without a life vest, with her only previous swimming experience being in a pool. An Olympic-caliber swimmer would have drowned in those conditions, or at least been completely exhausted, yet a novice swimmer like Laura manages with ease.

Added DiffLines:

* Cactus Jack Slade in the Western parody ''Film/TheVillain'' casually survives numerous examples of violence up to and including getting hit by a train. Not surprising, since the movie is essentially a live-action [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadrunner Roadrunner cartoon]], with Jack playing the part of Wile E. Coyote.

* Bud Spencer in many of his movies. Punch him wherever you want. He won't flinch. Go ChopSockey on him. He still won't flinch. Hit his back with a table leg. The table leg will break; he still won't flinch. You'll just make him slightly more angry.

Added DiffLines:

* The Franchise/StarWars universe has [[AWizardDidIt the Force]], but this trope is the only explanation for some of the things the non-Force users shrug off.
** Exhibit A: There isn't enough space on this page to list everything that Han Solo and Chewbacca get themselves into and out of, all without any Force abilities (and [[TheSkeptic proudly so]]). In four movies, it seems like everything tries to kill them at some point, and a lot of those things succeed in injuring Han especially. But they never end up with much worse than temporary blindness [[spoiler:(or at least, Chewie doesn't, and it doesn't end up being any of the obvious dangers that [[TearJerker finally get Han...]])]].
** Exhibit B: Poe Dameron. Judging by [[spoiler:Finn's reaction to Rey being kidnapped later in the film]], the First Order's interrogation techniques are a FateWorseThanDeath. Judging by Poe's reaction when he gets put through them in the beginning of the film, they're a mild annoyance (at least until TheHeavy shows up).
** Exhibit C: Finn, about five minutes later, crash lands on Jakku, treks through miles of desert, and promptly gets himself into a chase, a gunfight, and another chase with hardly a pause.

** Fun fact: in that last one, Creator/DolphLundgren actually broke a couple of [[SylvesterStallone Sly's]] ribs.

** Colossus. ''[[ExtraOreDinary Literally]]'', which allows him to take more punishment than any other member of the team.

* The dead, be they ''Film/{{RIPD}}'' or dead-o, simply cannot be harmed in any meaningful way other than shooting them. Nick is beaten with rocks and cinderblocks in the climax, and treats it like an inconvenience.

* {{Deconstruct|ion}}ed in the movie ''{{Unbreakable}}''. The character in question is the sole survivor of a wild train wreck. His super-fortitude is the basis for the plot.

** Even though Rexie takes a rather savage beating from the ''Indominus'' at the beginning, [[spoiler: once she got a moment to recover, she was unhindered and if anything, just seemed more pissed off by her injuries than anything else.]] Likewise, the final scene of Jurassic World shows that Rexie to be in excellent shape in spite of her age and injuries from the ''Indominus''.
