%%** Mendez, TheBrute in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' can also flash step, bend metal, kick the crap out of Leon like a ragdoll, and is resistant to bullets. The Mercenaries minigame has Super Salvador, who is as fast as the player, can leap rooftops in a single bound, and will instantly decapitate you with his flailing double chainsaw the moment you get in punching range. Verdugo, the illegitemate love child of Tyrant and the {{Predator}}, is even faster and deadlier than the Tyrants, and is NighInvulnerable unless [[KillItWithIce frozen with liquid nitrogen]].

%%** ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'' shows that Sephiroth, Genesis, and [=SOLDIERs=] like Zack are not only brutally hard-hitting and insanely durable, but in some cases, [[DodgeTheBullet bullet-dodgingly]] fast. The same with Vincent (at least in the [[CutscenePowerToTheMax cutscenes]]) in ''DirgeOfCerberus''.

Related to HiddenBadass. See also BadassBookworm[[note]]which contrasts with the GeniusBruiser, a big, strong guy who's SmarterThanTheyLook[[/note]], PintsizedPowerhouse, StrongAnts, KillerRabbit, CuteBruiser and GlacierWaif for the subtropes of this. (Note, examples that fit in the subtropes would be listed there rather than here.)

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/BabylonFive'': Similarly to Vulcans, the Minbary (outside the Warrior caste) don't look that imposing, but [[ProperLady Delenn]] snaps a thick wooden staff with her bare hands, and her usually meek assitant Lenier [[NeckLift lifts a grown man by the neck]].

%%* In Capcom beat-em-ups where there are four playable characters, one of these is usually a hard-hitting speedster, such as [[VideoGame/ArmoredWarriors Fordy]], [[FinalFight Lucia Morgan]], [[XenozoicTales Mustapha Cairo]], and [[VideoGame/AlienVsPredatorCapcom Predator Hunter]].

* Candace from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' has demonstrated remarkable strength on few occasions despite t obe a teenager. These occasions include when was able to cripple an alligator with her bare hands ("Fireside Girl Jamboree") and when she subdued a giant video game boss Buford by smacking him across the face with her in-game life bar ("Gaming the System"). She can perform one-handed push-ups ("I Was a Middle Aged Robot") and she has also been shown to be able to lift and carry her mother with no apparent difficulty.

%%* All three main player characters in the ''[[FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R]]'' games (Point Man, Becket, and the unnamed Sergeant) have BulletTime-abilities that can make them extraordinary fast for a few seconds at a time. They still hit hard enough to [[OneHitKill instantly kill]] a cloned super-soldier by ''slide-tackling their ankles'', and their round-house kicks would put Chuck Norris to shame.
%%** ''[[FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R: Perseus Mandate]]'' has the Nightcrawler Elite SuperpoweredMooks, who not only have the Pointman's [[FlashStep super-speed]] ability, but can also withstand nearly as much damage as a Heavy Armor GiantMook. Their leader, the Nightcrawler Commander, is armed with a BFG and can survive as much damage as a HumongousMecha.

%%* Aries, at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the ''WhateleyUniverse''. As strong as the tougher bricks, as fast as the faster speedsters. But he's a [[TheDragon Dragon]] for the school's BigBad.
