** Stand users in general, with a few exceptions like DIO, aren't any tougher than those without powers; so any with a particularly potent offense is going to fall into this if they start taking direct hits. Most noticeable with [[TeamPet Iggy in Part 3]], who has a very powerful stand with a wide range of abilities, but is still a small dog with all the fragility that one would expect. [[spoiler: Leading to him being mortally injured from a few strong kicks.]]

* Wisely of ''Manga/D.Gray-man'' can be considered this compared to other Noah (they are all physicially superhumans anyway). His power allows him to OneHitKill anyone by [[YourHeadASplode crushing their brain with a mere glance]]. However when he indirectly received an attack on his head he was stunned for the rest of the arc. Besides he declares himself as "not a fighter".

* ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'': The Daxamites are an alien race related to the Kryptonians that share many of their powers under exposure to yellow sun. As such, Daxamites are capable the same potential of destruction as their counterparts (made even worse by the race tendency to be {{Absolute Xenophobe}}s and not refraining from minimizing damage around them), the difference is that their [[WeaksauceWeakness main weaknesses]] is exposure to lead, which is even deadlier than exposure to Kryptonite since Kryptonians recover quickly after being moved away from it - once lead is inside Daxamites' body, its not going away and it will slowly kill them. While they can be as strong as Superman, Daxamites can be easily brought down using just conventional fire weapons.

** Quarterbacks in general. Quarterbacks can do punishing damage throwing the ball downfield and serve as the offense's field general. However, if the StoneWall offensive linemen screw up their blocking assignments, the quarterback usually doesn't have the strength or mobility to do anything except brace for impact and try not to get hurt by the 300+ pound men piling onto him. However, mobile quarterbacks like Dak Prescott or Deshaun Watson have the speed to evade defenders and take off running, and big guys like Ben Roethlisberger can fight through tackles to make a play.

Quarterbacks are also the only players besides kickers and punters who are not obligated to consistently engage another player physically (whether via tackling/being tackled or blocking). Pretty much all teams forbid their players from hitting the quarterback during practice, and [=QBs=] are generally the only players on offense or defense who will slide to a stop in order to avoid being hit after picking up positive yardage.



*** UsefulNotes/StephenCurry is this, to a lesser extent. He's an [[ImprobableAimingSkills excellent shooter]] and a solid passer, but his defense is just mediocre to average. This is slightly mitigated by the fact that he has defensively skilled teammates (e.g. Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala) and that he actually ''tries'' to play defense; contrast that to Harden, who seems like he '''[[BrilliantButLazy doesn't even try]] to play defense!'''

* Wrestling/CMPunk is a downplayed example, as his famous hour long matches and {{Garbage|wrestler}} matches make it hard to view him as "fragile" but he's one of the few wrestlers who will actually [[TheatricsOfPain sell]] for the notoriously non athletic Wrestling/PaulHeyman. Punk has only "sold" when Heyman was wielding a weapon, but Wrestling/{{Madusa}} and Wrestling/ChrisBenoit wouldn't even do that much. Punk can hoist wrestlers like Wrestling/{{Raven}} and Wrestling/SamoaJoe up, if they get careless, and knocked the likes of BJ Whimter and Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio unconscious, so he could presumably harm Heyman much worse than Heyman could harm him.

* Main Battle Tank design took something of a detour in this direction during the 1960s, at least in Western Europe. Confronted with widespread HEAT weapons, against which steel armor required prohibitive thickness to stop, the designers of the French AMX-30 and German Leopard I dispensed with the heavy steel armor of many contemporaries in favor of greater mobility afforded by the lighter weight. Not that they were un-armored, mind you, but they were emphatically not designed to take hits from anything larger than autocannon and keep trucking.
This detour ended in the 1970s with the development of composite and reactive armors, which could provide protection against HEAT weapons without prohibitive weight costs.

*** In the 1930's, the Soviet Union experimented with mounting rockets on tanks, producing [[http://epizodsspace.airbase.ru/bibl/shirokorad/ot-min/244.jpg this monstrosity]]. Due to several defects with the design (namely horrifying lack of accuracy), it was never put into production

* Jade in ''Literature/{{Fallocaust}}'' is one of, if not the most powerful character in a [[WorldofBadass series full of them.]] However, he lacks the pure muscle of some of his brothers, and several characters manage to incapacitate him by virtue of getting a lucky hit in.

** Armityle the Chaos Phantasm is the biggest example in the franchise. When it's attacking, it has 10,000 ATK; the highest fixed number in the entire game, and twice as high as the highest-ATK monster in the game. When it's not attacking, it has ''zero'' - and on top of that, it can't be destroyed by battle, meaning the opponent can keep attacking it over and over as if they were hitting you directly.
