* ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'': Stitch himself was designed to be this, being super strong (and NighInvulnerable) with a mind that can think faster than a supercomputer. Best exemplified with his prison escape (tricking the DNA-tracking blasters guarding him, for starters) and his rescue of Lilo (using a tanker truck full of gasoline on a volcano to propel himself into the air to reach and break into a spaceship, then throwing out its huge pilot).

* [[Wrestling/GeorgeSteele George "The Animal"]] Steele, Bill "Masked Superstar"/"Demolition Ax" Eadie, Little Wrestling/SpikeDudley and Matt "Prince Albert"/"A-Train"/"Giant Bernard"/"Lord Tensai" Bloom all were teachers before getting into pro wrestling. Steele would mostly wrestle during summer vacations. Matt Striker had to resign from his teaching position because the school system found that he had taken "sick days" when he was actually wrestling in Japan, or, as in the incident that caused his dismissal, wrestling a try-out match for Wrestling/{{WWE}}. Caylen Croft, real name Christopher Pavone, went in the opposite direction, retiring from wrestling to become a teacher.

* Alexander Karelin was the most dominant Greco-Roman wrestler in history. He went 12 years without a single defeat in international competition, 6 years without giving up a single point and made a habit of defeating his opponents, the toughest wrestlers in the world, in a minute or less. His signature move, the Karelin lift, involved lifting a struggling heavyweight from the mat and suplexing them into submission. He is 6'4" and wrestled at over 280 lbs, but was renowned for his incredible physique and conditioning, and responded to accusations of steroid use by passing every test ever asked of him and remarking, "I train every day of my life like they have never trained a day in theirs." He is also a poet, an enthusiastic fan of opera and ballet, holds a [=PhD=], a law degree and is currently a politician in Russia.
