** Big Macintosh is regularly shown as far and away on of the strongest ponies the in the show -- at one point, the CMC tied a house to him and it only barely slowed for a second.

*** It's implied Pinkie may have this as a latent trait, too. In ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E25TheCutieRemarkPart1 The Cutie Remark]]'', in the Crystal War timeline, she's shown alongside her sister shattering a boulder with her forehooves, easily keeping Pace with Maud. Combined with their dad later being shown to easily bite into and eat a rock, it's likely that Super Strength runs in the Pie family.

** In "Crusaders of the Lost Mark", an unnamed Earth Pony schoolfilly was strong enough to casually uproot and lift a with her head. In the same episode, a colt could lift a seesaw off the ground and carry it around with ease by picking it up with his teeth.

Very common power from UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}}. Usually does not [[IKnowKarate know Kung Fu]]. Usually, this is the linchpin power of a FlyingBrick. Characters with [[ComboPlatterPowers a wide variety of Superpowers]] will very frequently include this as a baseline ability. Characters with super strength may demonstrate it with a NeckLift. A must for TheBigGuy. This is also the most common CharlesAtlasSuperpower.

See also WorldsStrongestMan and RequiredSecondaryPowers. Villains show this off with a NeckLift, MinionMaracas, BarrierBustingBlow, or HoistHeroOverHead; heroes do it by being a LoadBearingHero. Characters with this power may sometimes [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength not know their own strength]]. They are often described as having TheStrengthOfTenMen. Children with this power have [[SuperStrongChild their own trope]].

** Shizuo's SuperStrength is somewhat realistic in nature. The human body is surprisingly strong on its own, to the point that have a natural "block" on their physical strength so that they don't end up tearing themselves apart whenever they're physically active. Shizuo doesn't have these blocks.

* Lots of people in ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan'' have this but Saitama is the main one. His strength is so high that anything he punches no matter how powerful it is will die in [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin one punch]] if he wants to kill them. The only one who he was able to handle his own and Saitama wanted to kill him was [[AlienInvasion Lord Boros]] but Saitama was hardly trying. It gets to the point where he hardly uses any of his power against anyone and still beats them in One Punch.

The only one who he was able to handle his own and Saitama wanted to kill him was [[AlienInvasion Lord Boros]] but who put up any kind of fight against Saitama was hardly trying. It gets to Boros (surviving ''three'' of Saitama's punches, albeit with heavy damage each time), and even then he was killed the point where he hardly uses any instant Saitama decided it was time to throw a "serious punch". Most of the time, Saitama is so far above his power against anyone and still beats opponents that even a lazily-thrown, effortless love-tap from him can obliterate them in One Punch.one blow.

* [[ILoveNuclearPower Radioactive waste]] in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' gave Lois this power.
* WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic:
** Big Macintosh has this as his explicit special talent, to the point that the CMC tied a house to him and he was barely slowed down.
** Pinkie's sister Maud is capable of [[http://derpibooru.org/575869 chucking rocks so hard that they explode]] as well as [[http://derpibooru.org/575821 shattering boulders with her bare hooves.]] It's foreshadowed a bit earlier than that, too - she thinks a gem from Rarity's hat is rock candy (in this universe, it's made from actual rocks, but apparently ones that aren't as hard as your average stone found on the ground) and has no trouble crunching into it.

** Applejack fits here too. When you can clear all of the apples out of a tree in a single kick (something that Appleloosa ponies have to do in groups and with multiples kicks), even while sleep depraved, stop a speeding, runaway cart going down hill dead in it's tracks with a single kick, send a bell flying sky-high during a bucking contest, and can kick over a tall tree in a single kick, you definitely qualify as this trope.

** Bulk Biceps is a pegasus example, with ridiculously large muscles and a dumbbell cutie mark. He has demonstrated the ability to bench press weights with another pony sitting on it, and smash through solid walls. However, he has very tiny wings, which make it difficult for him to fly.
** In "Crusaders of the Lost Mark", an unnamed schoolfilly was strong enough to casually uproot and lift a building.
