* The titular character of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', thanks to his HealingFactor, gets this treatment every now and then. A single punch from Sakura or Tsunade would kill most men, but Naruto just gets some lumps and bruises.

* H.E.L.P.eR. of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''. This household staff robot has been dismantled by rogue Monarch henchmen, had his legs ground off by acting as surrogate landing gear, been beaten to death and ejected to space ''by the Venture brothers'', been burned up on re-entry, had his [[ElectricTorture nipples electrocuted]], and been detonated and lodged in the chest of Brock Samson. [[FridgeLogic Upon reflection]], H.E.L.P.eR. can be seen as something of a [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] (no pun intended) of the Iron Woobie automaton. One of the reasons he sees so much action these days is because Dr. Venture has watched him take punishment for thirty-odd years and has become desensitized to it. (There's a moment when arch-enemy The Monarch demands Venture's cooperation because he has H.E.L.P.eR as a hostage, and Venture reacts as though The Monarch is insane.) The rest of the family treat H.E.L.P.eR much more like a person. Brock Samson is probably his healthiest friend (and maybe vice-versa?).

* Given the accidents Tory Belleci has suffered over the course of ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' (especially [[NeverLiveItDown that bike accident]]), it's a wonder he's so rarely had to be treated for serious injury.

Given the accidents Tory Belleci has suffered over the course of ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' the series (especially [[NeverLiveItDown that bike accident]]), it's a wonder he's so rarely had to be treated for serious injury.injury.
** Every Mythbuster has taken a knock or two. Considering the extreme danger they create, it's a credit to their safety protocols that it wasn't more. But one member of the team stands out as a shining paragon of this trope: Buster. He's been exploded, dropped from great heights, and struck with great force countless times. In fact, there's very little that Wile E. Coyote has been subjected to that Buster hasn't, and Buster went through it ''for real'' in a live-action show without the benefit of special effects. You just have to overlook the fact that he's a crash test dummy; the rest of the cast do.

* ''Film/HotRod'' has stuntman Rod Kimble. Though he may shrug off injuries and accidents that otherwise kill or permanently cripple people and be determined to save his step dad...very little actually goes right for him throughout the whole movie. You could probably count on one hand the number of times something does right for him without a hitch on one hand.

* Stumpy the squirrel from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}''. He even survived [[spoiler: being left on an '''exploding planet''']]!

* Grif from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''. Seriously, this guy once took a [[GroinAttack punch to the groin]] hard enough to ''dent'' the metal floor beneath him. The fact that he was able to walk straight is nothing short of extraodinary. Oh, but not just punched. ''Hammered'' by a shotgun, a gas tank, and a concrete roadblock (which partly cracked upon impact around the area), all to the groin. [[{{Badass}} Tex]] is a mean, mean girl.

* Pretty much all the characters in ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' have fallen to this trope at least once in an episode, Rocko being the occasional victim to this.

* ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' subjects the ''entire'' cast
to this.some form of physical abuse ([[SlapstickKnowsNoGender yes, even the girls]]), but the most frequent victims are Eggman and Knuckles. To be fair, though, both of them tend to invite suffering upon themselves, such as when Knuckles went through a minefield of exploding baby ducks and ''[[TooDumbToLive picked up almost every single one]]''...



** However, special mention goes to no one other than Kenny, [[TheyKilledKennyAgain who has died in more than one episode]].



* Amethyst of ''[[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse Steven Universe]]'' fame gets way more physical abuse than any other character. Nine times out of ten she'll walk it off no problem.
** Peridot suffers [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadrunner Wile E. Coyote-level trauma]] in "The Kindergarten Kid".
