* Lampshaded in ''FanFic/TalesOfTheMonkeyQueen'' when Suno tells Goku to follow standard safety rules (such as not walking into traffic and wearing her seatbelt) because she'll hurt anyone she collides with.

* The {{ComicBook/Shazam}} Captain Marvel ([[IAmNotShazam who was not himself named Shazam]]... [[ContinuitySnarl but now is]]) and the rest of the Marvel Family. Twist: His secret identity is actually powerless, he must transform into Captain Marvel by [[ByThePowerOfGreyskull speaking a word of power]], and he can use magic lightning as an offensive weapon. Furthermore, to differentiate from Superman, the fact that the Marvel Family's powers are based on magic and the gods means that they can resist magic/supernatural attacks better than Superman ever can (and Superman's explicit weakness, or at least non-resistance, to magical attacks means that if it ever comes down to a fight, [[LetsYouAndHimFight as it often has]], Marvel has an edge).

** Also, for a while, she had an "invisible jet" that she used to fly. This got retconned out down the line, though. And then got reintroduced because it's iconic.

* The title character of ''ComicBook/{{Plutona}}'' was one in her superhero form. Her invulnerability gave out in her last fight before the comic begins since the kids find her dead in the woods.

%%* A lot of Shinigami in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', although they more walk on air than fly.
%%* Several ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', Like Wargreymon, Magnamon, and Omnimon qualify.

fly, this still functionally works the same, and they usually have super strength to go along with it.

* The Ghost in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "The Return of Doctor Mysterio". Justified, since Grant was a huge fan of comic books, especially ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'', so the wish-granting gemstone gave him many of those powers: flight, speed, strength, endurance, hearing, and X-ray vision.

* ''WesternAnimation/AtomicPuppet'': Captain Atomic was a classic flying brick - superhuman strength, supersonic flight, and lightning-fast reflexes. Naturally, he passed it on to Joey when he got turned into a sock puppet.

* Kate Spencer, Comicbook/{{Manhunter}}. [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman Her supersuit gives her the strength and near-invulnerability, and her staff allows her to fly]]. She is also the granddaughter of Iron Monro (a {{Retcon}} CaptainErsatz of the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] Superman, though he couldn't fly) which helps with the near invulnerability part.

* {{Magellan}} has several of these, including Epoch on the main superhero force, Captain Victoria of the Australian superhero force, and two of the cadets (Charisma and Bill). Justified in that it's mentioned that the eponymous academy tries to recruit as many of these as possible.

* [[ComicBook/Captain Marvel|l}}: Twist: Um... see Captain Marvel, sort of. Except this one is super via aliens and super-science rather than gods and magic, being a Kree soldier and all.
