* The trope is present in ''SoonIWillBeInvincible'' as one of many background details. Doctor Impossible breaks the handle of a toilet, the cyborg Fatale's weight makes hardwood floors creak and cracks tiles, and she can't use normal furniture. * ''{{Carrie}}'': Believe it or not, the titular character didn't initially intend to kill anybody, but when she accidentally did, she snapped and decided everyone deserved the same fate.

* An example of how this can be an ACTUAL thing: Wrestling/JimCornette once did an interview, where he related the story of a wrestler who once got jumped by a ringside fan. Cornette (never known for his physical prowess) claimed the fan was so small HE could have beaten the guy up; the wrestler the fan jumped was "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Hercules Hernandez]]". Being part of the pre-litigious era, the man was restrained and held backstage, and after returning from the match, Hercules slapped the fan so hard he knocked the guy off his feet, into the wall, and onto the ground unconscious. Cornette's group was the next scheduled match, they walked over the poor fellow, had the match, returned back and he was ''still out cold''. Cornette asked Hercules why, if he was THAT angry, didn't he just punch the guy? The response: "Oh Jimmy, if you punch a guy you might hurt him!"

* Andre the Giant was this way. He was extremely careful in the ring because of it. Unless you pissed him off.

* In the [[AllInTheManual background material]] for ''Film/TheOne'', [[JetLi Yulaw]] was first revealed as an interdimensional offender by a fellow agent who long suspected him. He did it by asking him to carry a case upstairs and then revealing that the case was, in fact, loaded with extremely heavy weights and cannot be lifted by a normal person. Yulaw picked up the case and carried it with ease, likely thinking it was full of books. When the agent (a multiple black belt) confronted him, he ended up getting thrown down the stairs and paralyzed from the waist down. Also happens in the film with Gabe Law, who is starting to discover his newfound strength (by accidentally breaking a rifle in half).

* ''TheSixMillionDollarMan'': Steve Austin accidentally broke a man's wrist in the original book. Ironically, it was right after that man figured out that Austin's bionic hand had developed a feedback that ''would'' allow him to judge how much pressure he was exerting -- once he got used to it.

* SheHulk, who provides the page image, is usually not an example. However there's a storyline where she works out like crazy to beat a much stronger opponent (she intelligently uses a quirk of her physiology which increases greatly, in her Hulk form, the effects of workout in her "normal" form). This increases her strength to the point that she breaks nearly everything she touches, until she gets a PowerLimiter suit.

* In ''AlienInASmallTown,'' the hulking alien Paul knows how frail Indira will become as she ages, and he's terrified of accidentally hurting her. --> He had imagined her in this state years before, when he feared that if his massive hand even touched her in this condition, she would break like a hollow eggshell.
