* In ''AmericanTabloid'' and ''TheColdSixThousand'', Big Pete Bondurant does this whenever he is arrested. It's treated as a parlor trick to impress whatever cops arrested him rather than a feat of determination and strength. Of course, the fact that Bondurant is able to do this so casually only makes this more impressive.

**Similarly, it happens with the drain wrap that the Hermit's Rock ambushers put on Paul in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. He's supposed to be brought down to normal in it, so the guy watching over Paul has a nasty shock when Paul immediately breaks out of the stuff. Later, Paul adds immunity to such things to his ever-growing list of powers; he'd all but forgotten about the incident with the neut cuffs in ''Strings'', though he certainly remembered it now.
