Said friend tests his skill with an impromptu fight and after Romeo easily matches him, said friend makes the comment, "I was worried prison had made you soft". Romeo give him a look that screams, "Are you fucking kidding me?!" and then calmly states that, "You don't get soft in prison".

* Iroh of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' worked out when in prison to great effect in preparation for an escape attempt. The contrast between his figure in seasons one and three helped lead to his MemeticBadass status. By the time [[spoiler:Zuko]] came to rescue him, he had already escaped single-handedly, leaving a wrecked cell and a heap of trounced guards gibbering about he was "like a OneManArmy".

* Ex-General Iroh of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' worked out when in prison to great effect in preparation for an escape attempt. The contrast between his figure in seasons one and three helped lead to his MemeticBadass status.status -- by the end of his stay he was ripped and needed a pillow under his shirt to "maintain" his figure. By the time [[spoiler:Zuko]] came to rescue him, he had already escaped single-handedly, leaving a wrecked cell and a heap of trounced guards gibbering about he was "like a OneManArmy". The nutrition part of this trope is PlayedWith too -- a sympathetic guard, Ming, gave extra food to Iroh while he pretended to be an insane prisoner who could barely eat his normal rations.
