** Heavy is also [[StoutStrength giant man]], so that shotgun ''is'' the size of a pistol to him.

* ComicBook/SpiderMan can lift approximately 10 tons (which might seem small, but a car is roughly 1 and a half tons so he can lift about six of them), punch through steel and concrete effortlessly, pick up and crush a tank with his bare hands, and KO a mutant T-Rex in one hit. He has to actively hold back to avoid killing the thugs he pummels on a daily basis. His strength was boosted to 20 tons following The Other, but this was reverted following One More Day.

He has to actively hold back to avoid killing the thugs he pummels on a daily basis. His strength was boosted to 20 tons following The Other, but this was reverted following One More Day. It's worth noting that while 10 tons may be the ''official'' statistic, Spider-Man has lifted far greater weights and on occasion struggled with far lighter ones, with DependingOnTHeWriter being in effect even ''more'' than is traditional for comics. One comic can depict him struggling with someone with lower Super strenght, and another had him literally support the weight of most of the Daily Bugle and flipping 70-ton tanks like a featherweight.
** Venom, being a combination of a human host and a Symbiote that mimiced Spideys powers, was originally stated to be slightly stronger than Spidey, although as years passed Venom got some serious power boosts. Even before that however, a ''weakened'' Venom once supported a weight that WebAnimation/DeathBattle estimated to be about 200 tons.

* The CG-film version of ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf 2007}}'' certainly implied that the title character has beyond normal strength and fortitude. As he should: The original poem states that he had [[TheStrengthOfTenMen the strength of 30 men]] in each arm.
* In ''Film/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', Quasimodo is quite strong for a man of his size. Some of his feats include picking up an armored with one hand, sliding a massive stone slabs aside, scaling a catherdral wall with one hand while carrying Esmeralda and Djali in his other arm, and even ''breaking down brick walls''.



* The title character from ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' can smash more then just windows. For instance, he easily splits a jawbreaker that Vanellope says is indestructible & trashes ''most of the racing stadium''.
* Gloria the hippo from ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}'' can smash through brick walls. This makes sense, [[StoutStrength because she's a hippo]].
* Implied in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' when Ariel manages to move an underwater boulder (most likely sealed shut with an imbalanced volume on both sides) blocking her Grotto with relative ease.
** The rock maybe was more hollow, or simply that in the sea being lightweight in the water, although for that it would have to be at least something hollow from inside, or the same rock was more hollowed by the time or simply ariel was hollowed the itself. Or a simple goof of weigth.
** Even more implied with Flounder. How the heck was he even able to get a giant statue of a Prince into Ariel's Grotto. (Assuming the only people who knew about the Grotto were Ariel, Flounder, and Sebastian.)



* Oddy from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfTheTitanic'' is strong enough to ''throw whole icebergs''. Later on, he's shown to be strong enough move the Titanic, up to and including ''putting it back together after it gets split into two pieces''.
** However, he can't pick up a bathysphere from the ocean floor. Than again, said bathysphere was probably wedged into the ocean floor.

* ''Film/GhostRider'' gives an impressive visual example of super strength violating the laws of physics, as the Rider snares a helicopter with his chain and pulls it down. Unless he's heavier than a helicopter, tugging on the chain should have launched ''him'' toward ''it''. Whatever demonic powers were at work somehow knew which he was trying to achieve.
* The same trick is used in ''Film/UnderworldEvolution'' by [[BigBad Marcus]]. It's possible that Marcus is gripping the cave floor with his clawed feet, but it's not shown.

* ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'': Mr. Hyde is a hulking monstrosity with super strength, unlike his book version.
* David in ''Film/{{Unbreakable}}'' can rip car doors off and lift over five hundred pounds. It's unclear what his maximum potential is, as lifting anything heavy requires great effort, and he never fails at lifting anything.
* Fezzik in ''Film/ThePrincessBride''. Most noted during Westley's first encounter with the giant, as Fezzik holds an enormous boulder in one hand, and nonchalantly chucks it over his shoulder when they decide to fight hand-to-hand combat.



* ''Film/BladeRunner'': Nexus-6 Replicants are built to be far more durable and stronger than human beings, at the cost of a reduced lifespan. In the climax, Roy Batty lifts up Deckard's entire body weight using only one hand [[spoiler:to save Deckard's life]].
* ''Film/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'':
** Riddick. The benefits of being a HumanAlien from a high-gravity death world. Combined with the savagery and brutality that He displays in combat, he tends to shred through his opponents like they were made out of tinfoil.
** The Necromongers display prodigious levels of physical strength, especially when you start getting into the higher ranks, like Vaako and The Lord Marshall. Again, it's been pointed out that the Necromongers hail from a heavy gravity world, and they make use of gravity-based energy weapons along with gravity engines and drives for their ships and vehicles.
* ''Film/{{Elysium}}'': Aside from being able to rip off the heads from droids and throw people around like dolls, the Exosuits increase the user's physical performance dramatically. They move more quickly then the average combatant, and Kruger was able to leap a great distance and height using his Exosuit. Max was able to rip himself from a gurney, and pretty much pulverize Crowe into the floor of the Armoury before throwing him like a shotput.
* Jason Voorhees from the ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' series has this ability from ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVIJasonLives'' and onwards after he becomes an undead zombie, some of his feats of strength include ripping a man's arm off just by slightly pulling it, and [[Film/FridayThe13thPartVIIIJasonTakesManhattan decapitating someone with one punch]].
* ''Film/GameOfDeath''. Jabbar's character shows supernatural strength and can lift James Tien with ease. That is, [[spoiler: as long as he is not blinded by the light]].
* ''Film/GhostRider'' gives an impressive visual example of super strength violating the laws of physics, as the Rider snares a helicopter with his chain and pulls it down. Unless he's heavier than a helicopter, tugging on the chain should have launched ''him'' toward ''it''. Whatever demonic powers were at work somehow knew which he was trying to achieve.
* ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' gives two examples; Godzilla himself, able to throw kaiju of equal proportions over his head, and Titanosaurus, the only kaiju in the entire series to lift Godzilla ''by the head'' using only his own head and neck.



* Captain America and ComicBook/RedSkull were shown to possess this in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' as a result of the SuperSoldier serum.
* [[spoiler:Bucky Barnes, aka the titular soldier]] in ''[[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier Winter Soldier]]''.
* ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' shows that as a result, Cap and the above character both [[RealityEnsues weigh much more]] than would normal people the same size.

to:

* Captain America and ComicBook/RedSkull were ''Film/ItRunsInTheFamily'': [[TheBigGuy Big]] [[StoutStrength Dicky]] of the redneck gang that makes a conflict with the old man can tear the porch right off of a house.

* ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet3DreamWarriors'': In his dreams, Kincaid is a superstrong bruiser who can bend steel with his bare hands. Not strong enough for Freddy, however...
* JetLi's characters in ''Film/TheOne'' get this thanks to the in-universe ConservationOfNinjutsu. At one point, [[BigBad Yulaw]] uses a pair of police motorcycles as [[CarFu boxing gloves]].
* Fezzik in ''Film/ThePrincessBride''. Most noted during Westley's first encounter with the giant, as Fezzik holds an enormous boulder in one hand, and nonchalantly chucks it over his shoulder when they decide to fight hand-to-hand combat.
* ''Film/SpiderMan2'': Spider-Man demonstrates super strength far beyond his expected capabilities, stopping a subway car with two web lines and his own back.
* Augments from ''Franchise/StarTrek'' tend to have this as standard, but it's most apparent with John Harrison/[[spoiler: Khan]] from ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'', who can swing around a beam cannon like it weighs nothing (one-handed no less), send men flying with a single blow, and [[YourHeadAsplode crush peoples' skulls]] with his bare hands. The only one who can fight him evenly is Spock, since Vulcans (including a HalfHumanHybrid like him) are much stronger than humans.
* The 1975 Disney film ''Film/TheStrongestManInTheWorld'' revolves around Medfield College student Dexter Reilly inadvertently gaining super strength from a strength formula that landed in the cereal of his best friend, Richard Shuyler.
* The Turtles have this in ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014''. Donnie is able to throw Raph with enough force to bash in a Humvee and send it rolling down a hill, and flip another truck over with only his bo staff himself.

** The rock maybe was more hollow, or simply that in the sea being light weight in the water, although for that it would have to be at least something hollow from inside, or the same rock was more hollowed by the time or simply ariel was hollowed the itself. Or a simple goof of weigth.
** Even more implied with Flounder. How the heck was he even able to get a giant statue of a Prince into Ariel's Grotto. (Assuming the only people who knew about the Grotto were Ariel, Flounder, and Sebastian)

* One of Stitch's powers in ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''. He is stated to have the capacity to lift 3,000 times his own weight (which, granted, is seemingly lower than that of a grown man). The series played with this by saying this was the ''exact'' amount he could lift: Gantu flicks a piece of paper onto a weight Stitch is holding up and Stitch immediately collapses.
