** Both of the Fire siblings. They may be young but they're very talented firebenders, especially Azula who can bend lightning.
** The same series also gives us Toph and Aang. Although you ''would'' expect Aang to be more of a FragileSpeedster, mastering all the elements other than just air really helps him with the bruisin'.



* In ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'', easily Sonic. Though in the games he is usually much more a FragileSpeedster, here he can punch and kick robots (kicking makes sense...), and when already running, throw things multiple times his size with his momentum. He is also the only Freedom Fighter to have broken security cameras by ''throwing junk at them...with ONE hand''...

* ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' has the Night Fury, Toothless, easily the fastest dragon in flight, and with one of the most powerful fire blasts. Also, despite being comparatively small, he easily survives hitting the ground any time he gets shot down or loses control of his flight.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''
** Rainbow Dash, who is a boisterous tomboy and has been shown to not only fly fast enough to accomplish the legendary "Sonic Rainboom" - the only pegasus known to have ''ever'' done so, including the two ''[[GodEmperor god-princess]] [[WingedUnicorn alicorns]]'' - but has since also gained enough control over the ability to manipulate it into a thermonuclear explosion used to utterly demolish a huge old barn. And that's just the tip of the iceberg; on another occasion, she kicked a fully grown dragon in the face hard enough to not only provoke it into going on the offensive, when the entire problem the dragon posed was that it refused to get up from its nap, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXsPcp_KtJw actually whine near-tearfully about it afterwards]] in conjunction with Fluttershy's [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath amazing verbal beatdown]].

** Zoro, too. Looks only slightly more buff than Sanji. But twice, he's shoved huge hunks of debris off of himself. And he routinely practices his sword swings using huge barbells about as big as himself. There's a good reason all three, in spite of appearances, are known collectively as the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Monster Trio]].

%%* Grace in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''. When she really tries and is more or less [[ShapeshifterDefaultForm in her default form]], she moves [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2002-12-17 too fast to track]], even for [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2002-07-18 experienced martial artists]]. The first time she fought, without any training, it was much like a [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2004-04-22 rubber cannonball with claws]]. An opponent with SuperStrength couldn't connect fast enough to make her more than bounce back and forth and slash again.

* ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}''': Shizuo Heiwajima looks like a pretty ordinary guy, albeit dressed up like a bartender. But people quickly learn not to cross him because this guy ''routinely'' rips vending machines out of the concrete and heaves them at people he doesn't like. He can literally leave people PunchedAcrossTheRoom.

* ''{{Godzilla}}'' series:
** Megaguirus is the single quickest, nimblest monster in the entire series, and still manages to pick Godzilla - a monster three times her own mass - off the ground, as well as take a considerable amount of physical punishment and be little worse for the wear. She burns like a gasoline-doused paper bag, but physically speaking, she can swap blows with the best of them.
** Some versions of Godzilla himself also qualify, but none so much as his Final Wars incarnate, who shrugged off nuke-scale explosions that left mile-wide craters in the ground, while simultaneously dispatched his enemies with wire-fu maneuvers and amazingly quick reflexes.
