** Godzilla Junior and Xenilla both humor their guards when they get arrested at different points in the story, then casually break their shackles.
** King Sombra shackles Princess Cadance with crystal constructs and boasts that even with her Alicorn strength, she won't be able to break free in time before he kills her. Xenilla arrives in time to tackle him away before he can stab her, then while the two are fighting, Cadance manages to break them.
** [[spoiler:Harmony wraps Bagan with a chain that becomes stronger the more evil the prisoner is. Bagan is able to break it, possibly because he considers himself AboveGoodAndEvil.]]

* An unfortunate person from Gadara ([[{{IAmLegion}} you heard that one]]), was described as doing that on regular basis. To be fair, it's not specified, whether this strength is result of DemonicPossession, or the man simply was strong enough to begin with:
-->...a man with an unclean spirit, who lived among the tombs; and no one could bind him any more, even with a chain; for he had often been bound with fetters and chains, but the chains he wrenched apart, and the fetters he broke in pieces; and no one had the strength to subdue him.
