* ''Film/CaptainAmerica: CivilWar'' has Scarlet Witch dump a bunch of cars on Iron Man. One car can weigh two tons. Now imagine a dozen of these dropping on you. Even with the suit, it's a wonder that Tony only had "multiple contusions" and didn't completely turn into a pulp.

* In the remake of ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet2010'', Quentin Smith survives absurd levels of punishment. Being dangerously sleep-deprived, he injects himself with a vial of pure epinephrine shortly before the climax. During Nancy's plan to drag Freddy into the real world so the two can kill him, Quentin accidentally falls asleep while watching over Nancy's sleeping form. He is promptly ambushed by Freddy in the Dream World, who slashes his chest open (that's four deep gashes, mind you, one for each finger blade) before slamming his head repeatedly against a metal pipe and leaving him for dead. Through sheer force of will, Quentin wakes himself up and injects Nancy with the other vial of adrenaline to revive her as well, bringing Freddy along for the ride. In the ensuing fight, Quentin receives even *more* injuries as he is impaled through the torso, sent flying across the room with enough force to shatter a mirror, and backhanded to the ground by Krueger. Despite this, he still manages to seriously wound the killer in the process. Hell, even *Freddy* can't help but comment on Quentin's stubborn determination by demanding, "Now why don't you just fuckin' die?!"

* Captain Kirk in the [[Film/StarTrek new movie]] takes some pretty serious beatings: in approximately a single day, he gets the everliving crap beaten out of him by Romulans before Sulu saves his butt, nearly falls to his death on Vulcan trying to save Sulu's butt, nearly eaten by two monsters on an ice planet, Spock kicks his ass and nearly strangles him to death, then the Romulans beat the everliving crap out of him yet again. And yet he's still standing.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.
