** 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.

** Both Dragon Slayers are particularly notable for being extremely powerful with or without magic, as almost all other magic users are physically weak, and almost all other fighter types can't use magic.

* ''{{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.

* The first guardian of the M'kraan Crystal seen during the original Phoenix saga in the X-men looks like a small and fairly weak dwarf, Wolverine quickly learns otherwise after mocking him as with one punch he sent Wolverine into space at escape velocity.

[[/folder]]* Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} isn't exactly scrawny, however this trope still comes into effect because of his HealingFactor. One side effect is that it increases the density of both his muscles and bones, allowing them to exert more force than would be possible for an ordinary human being without tearing them off their ligaments, breaking their own bones, or ''liquefying'' their muscles from over-exertion. His unbreakable adamantium skeleton effectively takes this UpToEleven, by removing one of the key limits to the amount of muscle power a normal human can exert.
** Comicbook/{{X 23}} for much the same reasons, though not to the same extent since her bones aren't bonded. However in her case it's ''much'' more exaggerated since rather than a short but heavily-muscled man, she's a short, slight, pretty teenage girl.
