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.

Certain RequiredSecondaryPowers may also induce this and it is particularly true for SuperHero characters to have "increased strength and endurance" in their portfolio, even if never outright explained or stated. How else can someone whose sole power is [[PlayingWithFire throwing flame]] take being thrown off a multi-story building as no big deal? The line gets fuzzy between BadassNormal and CharlesAtlasSuperpower where somehow a "normal" person has become invulnerable to the effects of RealLife by [[HeroicWillpower willing themselves uninjured]]. Modern special effects are somewhat to blame for this, as they frequently up the forces involved to look more dramatic. This sometimes approaches cartoon-esque extremes, such as a person getting [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom smashed through concrete or brick walls]] and being able to get right back up again with only negligible injury.
