* Individuals with frequent seizures can be abnormally strong, which is why you either get a half dozen people to help sedate one who is out of control or you have one try to gentle calm them down.
** This is not so much "abnormally strong" as that they don't have the natural limiters on using their strength and are instead flailing about uncontrollably. A normal person knows not to hit something that won't move, like a wall, with their full strength. A person having a seizure doesn't have that option.

* In ''[[Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time]]'', After clearing the Dodongo's Cavern, Darunia the Goron decides that he and Link are now sworn brothers, and gives him a hearty pat on the shoulder. It goes about as well as you'd expect, especially when all of the Gorons decide it's time for a GroupHug, which causes Link to run away [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl screaming at the top of his lungs.]]

** Entirely averted with the oni Yuugi Hoshiguma, the physically strongest of the entire cast, whose self-control is such that just getting her to spill a drop of the sake she holds in one hand in a wide bowl [[ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask while fighting]] is considered the only plausible way of winning against her.
