** ''Comicbook/SupermanVsTheAmazingSpiderMan'': Superman is strong enough to drive a HumongousMecha into the ground. When he is about to hit Spidey during their mandatory fight, he manages to pull his punch, but the wind-blast strikes Peter "with the strength of a compact hurricane".

** In ''Comicbook/DemonSpawn'' Linda argues with bully and rival 'Nasty'. Afterwards she punches a wall out of anger and frustration. She accidentally cracked the wall and moved a cabinet to cover up the hole. Meanwhile, her co-workers wondered whether a plane crashed into the building, so loud resounded her punch.

** Fifth, we have [[CrazyAwesome Killer Bee]] and [[BadAss the Raikage, A]], both of which demolished Sasuke in two separate occasions. Killer Bee could wield Zabuza's {{BFS}} with one hand and he doubles as being MadeOfIron. A [[Awesome/{{Naruto}} smashed through Sasuke's Susano'o on two separate occasions]] by just strength alone, and his [[WrestlerInAllOfUs Liger Bomb]]... causes mass destruction.

* Franchise/{{Superman}} is the standard comic-book example, as well as one of the most over-the-top due to PowerCreepPowerSeep. During UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}}, he tugged an entire galaxy of planets to the other side of the universe without breaking a sweat.
* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' is also a textbook case. Depending on the version, she's nearly so strong or slightly stronger than her cousin Superman.

* The CG-film version of ''Film/{{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]].

* Sonic, Knuckles, Hyper Metal Sonic, Metal Robotnik all display great feats of physical strength in SonicTheHedgehogTheMovie. A clash between Sonic and Metal was enough to dislodge a stalactite the size of a mountain!
* This seems to be a standard power of the titular [[Anime/SaberMarionetteJ Saber Marionettes]]. In her first appearance, Lime is capable of singlehandedly carrying half a sky scrapper (although this was extremely taxing) and Bloodberry is generally portrayed as being stronger still. Even Cherry, who is not as adept at fighting, is shown to be stronger than a human



* Doomsday from DC is generally depicted as being even stronger than Superman (this varies from being nearly equal, to marginally, to dwarfing him in physical strength)



* Obviously the larger dinosaurs from the ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' franchise are much stronger than people, but they are also shown to be much stronger than their real life counterparts as well. This is most noticible for [[Film/JurassicPark Rexie]] , [[Film/JurassicPark3 the Spinosaurus]], and perhaps especially [[Film/JurassicWorld the Indominus]]



** In fact, WordOfGod has stated that the average Toa would probably be capable of lifting at least a ton, without any help from their masks. Toa of Stone, Earth, and Iron are stronger still.



*** Somewhat more consistently, they are also generally able to lift and throw Bowser if they can incapacitate him.



** All of the [[StanceSystem Power]] characters in ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' have this; including Knuckles (again) as well as [[CrushKillDestroy Omega]], [[GentleGiant Big]], and [[StreetSmart Vector]].

[[DependingOnTheWriter Depending on how she's being portrayed at the moment]], [[ClassyCatburglar Rouge the Bat]] and [[BadassPacifist Tikal the Echidna]] would rival their strength
** Metal Sonic is generally portrayed as being even stronger than Sonic or Shadow.



* From ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Cyborg, Starfire, Beast Boy (depending on form; his gorilla form is the go-to for feats of strength), Pantha, and Aqualad.

* 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''.

* ''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]].

* Nikita in ''Literature/TheGirlFromTheMiraclesDistrict'', when she goes berserk, has enough strength to tear men apart with her bare hands.
* The Primarchs in ''Literature/HorusHeresy'' are superhumanly strong even if one takes under consideration that they're three metres tall. Roboute can easily punch a man's head off with his bare hands, and Vulkan once sends an entire tank flying through the air with a swing of a hammer.
