** Non-magical This is the case for non-magical classes in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' throughout the series.

These include (but certainly aren't limited to) being able to outrun deer and outswim fish, jump several stories into the air, kill them in one people and creatures with a single punch, jump the length of some buildings, turn invisible simply by crouching, kill bears with their bare hands, and ''jump off repeatedly jump across the surface of water, repeatedly''.

* Guts from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' is a monster of a man who swings a {{BFS}} with frightening speed and has survived more than two years' worth of relentless demon attacks, many of which would have killed a normal man many times over. The justification is that he has spent literally his entire life on battlefields, meaning he's also spent most of it in battle. Wielding a sword most of the day for every day of your life will eventually add up, it seems. The manga states that surviving the Eclipse allowed Guts to gradually turn himself into a literal superhuman through sheer willpower, but he was tough enough to fight and wipe out a 100-men unit even when he was a perfectly normal soldier.

** Even Guts's ''sword'', the Dragon Slayer, can be considered a version of this. Guts unknowingly gave it the power to harm NighInvulnerable beings, simply by killing so many supernatural creatures with the weapon that their essence rubbed off on it and anchored it in a higher plane of existence.

* While it's nowhere near ''Franchise/DragonBall'' levels in real life, sufficiently-trained martial artists can break human bone with a single attack (note that bones are about as dense and hard as concrete), as well as other seemingly impossible feats (such as Creator/BruceLee's famous One-Inch Punch).

Heck, sufficiently-training at the Shaolin Temple can allow you to harden your body against bladed weaponry.

* The Guiness Book Of World records list the greatest amount of weight lifted by a woman to be 3000 lbs, which was lifted Josie Wahlford, the first wrestler to ever be called a "world champion", in the form of 23 men on a platform attached to a special harness. But assisted by a harness or not, 3000 lbs is still a lot of weight.

* Wrestlers do this kind of thing in general. The likes of Wrestling/BobbyLashley, Wrestling/TheBigShow and Wrestling/BobSapp have all pulled or flipped automotive vehicles ranging from cars, to SUVs, to buses, respectively. Wrestling/MarkHenry once pulled ''two'' semi trucks to promote a match and has lifted a hummer.

* Wrestling/TheIronSheik was famous for his Persian clubs challenge, which few in the weight lifting business could be and ''no one'' in pro wrestling could, until Wrestling/MarkHenry.

* An example that has less to do with strength than pain tolerance was [[Wrestling/MickFoley Mankind]]'s infamous SpanishAnnouncersTable fall from the top of [[GimmickMatches Hell In A Cell]] at the hands of Wrestling/TheUndertaker, who was legitimately scared that he killed his opponent, the match to legitimately be called off only for Mankind to get up and climb back up the Hell In A Cell cage while Wrestling/JimRoss begged for the match to be stopped, which it wasn't until Mankind was then slammed ''through the roof'' of the cage and had a tooth knocked out from a chair falling on his face afterwards. Several things actually went wrong with, no one had planned for Mankind to take such a beating, but he showed remarkable pain tolerance and a willingness to continue.
* Ayako Hamada was once dropped off a balcony by Nanae Takahashi at a [[Wrestling/AllJapanWomensProWrestling Zenjo]] show but managed to get back up and keep fighting.
* Sick Nick Mondo had built up a superhero like reputation in Wrestling/{{CZW}}, as where most legendary damage sponges generally get their reputation from NeverLiveItDown incident or CrowningMomentOfAwesome, Mondo had ''many''. He's taken falls off trucks only five feet from the statistically 99% fatal height and then topped that with falls higher than the mark, one of which he and John Zandig messed up and by all means should have been fatal, ''and almost was'', yet Mondo continued to wrestle multiple {{garbage|wrestler}} matches [[MadeOfIron with ruptured arteries]]. He's come back to the ring after car accidents, been hit with legitimately on power tools(leading weed whackers to be officially banned from use in USA sporting events) and [[{{Determinator}} still came back for more]]...though somewhat downplayed [[DentedIron as Mondo ended up retiring]] at [[RealityEnsues a much early age]] than Mankind, Hamada and the like. As much as he loved the fans, he didn't enjoy almost dying.
* An example displaying neither strength nor fortitude but endurance was Wrestling/ChrisHero's "[[RunTheGauntlet Infinity Gauntlet]]" at SMASH's 2015 ALS benefit show where Hero vowed to wrestle 30 minutes for every 500 USD donated towards fighting the disease. The result was a three hour and ten minute match that saw Hero face a constant string of fresh challengers. He didn't win against them all, ending with a 12-4-1 record, but nonetheless the match didn't stop and Hero beat most of his fresher opponents.[[/folder]]

* {{Comicbook/Wolverine}}'s nominal superpowers are his HealingFactor and SuperSenses. However, he is also an incredibly skilled martial artist and regularly performs feats of strength beyond a normal human, just because he's trained that hard.
