* Unless ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' unless Superman is being screwed over by [[KryptoniteFactor kryptonite, red sunlight, or magic]], there's a good chance Superman will [[SuperToughness will shrug off]] practically any hit takes. At best, his opponent will usually do little more than get him to admit [[DamnedByFaintPraise he actually felt it]]. And even when he's facing [[PlanetDestroyer planet busters]] and other foes with a similar SuperWeight that can actually do legit harm to him, he'll often keep going and going unless [[StrongAsTheyNeedToBe the plot suddenly needs him to take an L.]]

* Unless ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' is getting screwed over by kryptonite, practically any hit he takes from something that ''isn't'' a veritable PlanetDestroyer is usually [[NighInvulnerability shrugged off]]. But all to often, he gets visibility hurt by stuff that logically shouldn't scratch him. This is often [[HandWave hand waved]] by his power fluctuating with the amount solar energy he's absorbed but even that can be a flimsy justification at times. Speaking of shrugging off, whether his KryptoniteFactor and other specific weaknesses like magic and red sunlight [[AchillesHeel brings him to his knees]] or is just [[TheDeterminator a mere annoyance]] often varies with the plot.

** ''RockyIV'' is bad, too. Ivan Drago managed to ''kill'' Apollo Creed with one of his punches, and Rocky is still able to hold him off for ten minutes screen time before his "come-from-behind" win.

* This can even happen in movies about supposedly normal mortals:
** [[Film/JamesBond Bond]] and Trevelyan's fight at the end of ''Film/GoldenEye''.
** ''Franchise/{{Rocky}}'' tends to fall into this trap, getting worse as time goes on; ''Film/RockyV'' is probably the worst offender.
*** ''RockyIV'' is bad, too. Ivan Drago managed to ''kill'' Apollo Creed with one of his punches, and Rocky is still able to hold him off for ten minutes screen time before his "come-from-behind" win.
** ''Film/FaceOff'': You would think that getting stabbed by a butterfly knife (and twist to make sure the wound won't close) would be enough to stop Castor Troy. No? How about a Harpoon to the gut? Still going? These guys didn't even slow down despite receiving wounds that at the very least should have made them limp.
** The (anti-)climactic fight scene in ''Film/TheyLive'' where Nada and Frank spend a good five minutes pummelling each other in a parking lot. Given they're fighting on a concrete surface you'd probably expect broken bones by the minute mark, nevermind when they start with the suplexes.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The brutal battle between Brienne and Sandor is so savage it becomes this for awhile. Then one of them gains an advantage and a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown ensues.

** Saiyans in general seem to have very durable bodies. Goku had all his limbs broken or disabled and was still able to beat King Piccolo and Piccolo. He also got beaten so badly by King Piccolo that his heart stopped and restarted on its own. He got hit multiple times in pressure points and got up after a few seconds with only minor pain. When Goku and Raditz were hit by Piccolo's Special Beam Cannon it took Goku several minutes to die despite having a giant hole in his chest (or [[{{Bowdlerise}} a giant burn mark]] in the ''Kai'' version). Piccolo had to crush Raditz's head in to kill him quickly since, hole or no hole, he was still able to talk and brag. Goku got pummeled to a pulp by Frieza for several episodes and still had the endurance to become Super Saiyan without fainting, something that is supposed to be highly exhausting the first time. Not to mention, Gohan got his ''freaking'' neck broken and was still alive.
