* O-Chul from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has survived: being hit, whilst paralysed, by an explosion ''right next to him'' that destroyed a castle; fighting a shark whilst tied up and impaled by spikes in a tank of acid; (offscreen) having a staring contest with a basilisk; and being Disintegrated, electrocuted, and hit with a Meteor Swarm. The villains have taken to placing him in psychotically dangerous situations simply to bet on his survival. This is a man who has ChuckNorris jerky for breakfast.

** On a similar note, [[spoiler: Terezi]] can survive, in order, taking a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown from the aforementioned, having a sword plunged into her chest, being blasted into a mountain, the collision of two ''planets'', and a high-speed jetpack crash. She staggers out of it all bleeding heavily and badly worse for wear, but alive and strong enough to walk and speak. Hell, she ''[[spoiler: outlives Gamzee!]]''

She died after that, but she didn't go until she was good and ready and she still ''[[spoiler: outlives outlived Gamzee!]]''

* In the JackieChanAdventures and ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' crossover fic ''Fanfic/AShadowOfTheTitans'', Jade lampshades how tough the Titans and other inhabitants of the TT world are. Subverted with Kitten, who foolishly insults Jade in the Tournament of Villainesses, hitting a BerserkButton and causing her to get blasted by the Dragon Talisman, nearly killing her and giving Jade an MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment (she lampshades the inconsistency).
* In the JackieChanAdventures fic ''Fanfic/QueenOfAllOni'' by the same author, this version of Jade has increased strength, a HealingFactor, and increased durability after her transformation, and has been thrown through walls and down hills and gotten right back up afterwards (she claims she DOES bruise, but it can't be seen against her skin).

If a person has this kind of durability as a superpower, it's SuperToughness. When the character ''does'' sustain grisly, incapacitating injuries but keeps going anyway, it's NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow.

NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow. If the character's durability is justification for putting them through [[AmusingInjuries a lot of physical stress for the audience's amusement]], you probably have an IronButtmonkey.

* In ''Literature/{{Twig}}'', Sylvester is this due to his regular injections of the Wyvern Serum, which both allows him to manage his pain better due to being a mental-enhancement SuperSerum, and also raise his pain threshold due to involving injecting toxins directly through the sinuses into the brain.

* The eponymous ''WebOriginal/JeffTheKiller'' in the original {{Creepypasta}} survives being stabbed, kicked in the face, punched, thrown through glass, having a glass bottle broken over his head, set on fire, cutting off his own eyelids, and giving himself a GlasgowSmile yet takes the bullies who inflicted this upon him (or mostly anyone else really) quite easily.

* ''Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound'': Tod, a 13lb fox, takes multiple hits from a 1200lb bear, and takes a plummet off a waterfall with said bear. He lived. The bear didn't.
** To be fair, thanks to the SquareCubeLaw smaller animals can survive larger falls without being seriously injured.
