* The Thing, from ComicBook/TheFantasticFour, can officially lift 85 tons, which isn't too shabby considering his original limit was "only" five tons. Despite this, he has achieved vast feats of strength that would require his power to be several orders of magnitude higher. A future version of him once easily beat him and said that he would continue getting StrongerWithAge. Ben notably is something of a [[TheWorfEffect measuring pole]] for the Marvel Universe's top strongmen: If you can defeat him, you're part of the top brass.

* Guts's entire life from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' has been one great big test of strength, ever since he was given a adult's longsword when he was just five years old and got stronger. Naturally he just picked bigger swords to slice people apart since then, Guts eventually graduated to the [[{{BFS}} Dragonslayer sword]] which weighs approximately 400 lbs/180 kilograms of solid brutal iron which he can even [[https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/berserk/images/9/99/Dragonslayer_from_up_high.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20160924043408 lift in one hand]]. While it takes two normal humans to lift the "sword" and nearly crushed a child who tried to steal it, just clarify what a herculean freak Guts is.

** The only human who was bigger than Guts was fallen member of the Band of Hawk Pippin, a former miner with just as much Super Strength as Guts. Pippin could move a gravestone like a paper weight, smash through stone and reduce incoming armies to bloody shreds.[[spoiler: Pippin was the only dude besides Guts who could literally fight off the Apostles during Eclipse despite not surviving]].
** Griffith [[WasOnceAMan when he was a human]] could easily block Gut's massive greatsword with his rapier to shock of Guts at the time and later he actually slices off Nosferatu Zodd's arm, while the already weakened Guts couldn't do more than cut into Zodd's flesh. And Griffith had virtually zero [[MusclesAreMeaningless muscle mass]] compared to Guts. [[spoiler After the Eclipse however when Griffith is a [[GodAmI member]] of the God Hand superior strength is just a fraction of his power]].
*** All [[TheLegionsOfHell Apostles]] have monstrous strength, Wyald for example could crush an entire tree in half with one squeeze of his hand.



** Sanji is mainly known for his incredible kicks, which can smash buildings and defeat ''Giants'', but his upper body strength isn't far behind. In his first appearance, he dangles Fullbody [[NeckLift by the neck with one hand]]. In Skypeia he could [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-tljtOAKdeUw/V4RBDQBThUI/AAAAAAAA7W4/TuewtzaljTc1UhWolnphlEXlwXuNGpimwCHM/s16000/0257-003.png swing around a 5 ton sledgehammer]] like it was nothing. In a filler arc, Sanji could carry a sack full of solid gold treasure over his shoulder, while Nami could barely drag the same sack across the ground. In Zou Sanji carries a massive pile of Minks [[LoadBearingHero ''over his head'']].

* Strength is an option in many ''Creator/Bethesda'' games, in Fallout games it's special skill you raise and lower at the start, a high Strength skill means better carry weight capacity, heavy weapons handling and melee weapons and unarmed skill. By level 30 you can punch people apart with just [[BareFistedMonk your fists]] if your level 100 unarmed.

** The Super Mutants in Fallout are essentially an army of Incredible Hulk(s) packing firepower and their strength can be a pain in the ass when your a lower level and the Super Mutant Behemoth are threat no matter how high level you are. Deathclaws also have superior strength given how ''easily'' they can rip you to shreds in about three or two swipes.
*** The Giants in ''VideoGame/{{Skyrim}}'' deserve a special mention as their club attack can send you and your companions [[https://i.pinimg.com/originals/fa/c5/57/fac557fdb6a24055d5f5e3e5a95057b5.gif ''into orbit'']]. This wasn't intentional and was a glitch but Bethesda liked it so much it stayed in the game.



** Cloud the main character, has his own [[{{BFS}} massive sword]] (not as long as Seph's Masamune, but wider and almost certainly heavier), and wields it with similar ease. Even before he got the BioAugmentation Cloud could not only wield the Buster Sword but also lift Sephiroth up by his own Masamune [[PullYourselfDowntheSpear despite being impaled by it at the time]] and toss his ass down into the Mako reactor.

*** When a private plane was gonna crash, Spiderman literally gets outside while it's still flying and forces the landing gear out and then like the [[BadassBookWorm glorious nerd]] he is Spidey measures the weight of the plane 75,000 pounds and it's fuel 30-40,000 pounds combined with the thrust and Spiderman is [[https://imgur.com/ktsc18C supporting 155,000 pounds]] aka 57.5 tons. The equivalent of lifting eight African elephants at once (or six T-Rexes).
*** One of the greatest Spiderman moments of all time concerns a feat of strength, in "''If This Be My Destiny''". Aunt May is dying, and Spiderman is desperately searching for a cure. But then a important ingredient is stolen by the "Master Planner" ([[spoiler:actually Doc Ock]]). [[UnstoppableRage Spiderman goes on a brutal rampage]], storming the villain's underwater HQ and smashing it apart. But he he ends up collapsing the building, trapping himself under a gigantic mound of debris (129,8 tons). The cure is right in front of him, but it seems like there's nothing he can do. But Peter Parker swears he will not be responsible again for the death of his loved ones and with all his strength [[HeroicSpirit lifts]] it up.

** Vison thanks to the power of the [[PowerCrystal Mind Stone]] is massively strong, in his introduction in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' he knocks Thor aside with no effort and later punches straight though mutiple Ultron robots like their made of cardboard. In [[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar Civil War]] Vison effortlessly overpowers Hawkeye and when the latter hits him with a baton ''it shatters like a icicle'' later Vison [[UseYourHead headbutts]] Giant Man so hard that he loses balance and falls back slightly into the plane behind him.

Even at his smallest in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' Link can swing a Darknut sword twice his size, and a even bigger in [[https://www.zeldadungeon.net/Zelda14/Walkthrough/10/1038.jpg sword]] in [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardsword Skyward Sword]] But Link in [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]] is easily the physically strongest Link, even working the ranch he could stop the charging bulls (35 miles per hour) with his bare hands and subdue them, later Link picks ups and throws Gorgons who weigh as much as boulders (175 pounds) and tosses even bigger Gorgon warrior Dangoro (who is armored).

** Raiden from ''[=MGS4=]'' on wards is ridiculously strong thanks to his cybernetic upgrades, in said game he beats a dozen Geckos by swinging one around ''with his mouth''. Later he hold backs the entire titanic Outer Heaven Battleship by himself giving Snake enough time to escape though he loses both arms as a result, if that wasn't enough he then appears later ''still armless'' and fights off Haven Troops with just his sword clutched between his teeth. ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' takes this [[UpToEleven even further]] as in the very first level, Raiden picks up Metal Gear RAY (which weighs over one thousand tons) and throws it over serval buildings and then slices it head to toe like it's butter. In the final level while fighting Armstrong, Raiden picks up ''the even bigger'' Metal Gear EXCELSUS throws it down and then tears off it's blade-legs off and swings it around at [[BulletTime high speeds]]. It's safe to say Raiden is likely the strongest individual in the Metal Gear franchise.

** [[DishingOutDirt Earth Benders]] in general are granted superior strength as well as some level invulnerability to element itself, this includes moving and lifting boulders, bending steel like it's paper and even spiting entire frigging continents apart. The only subversion comes from the fact this ''only'' applies to Earth and it's minerals. As subtly showcased when crossing the desert [[CuteBruiser Toph]] stubs her foot on a partly submersed '''wooden''' raft and instead of breaking it she falls down in pain rubbing her foot, despite being shown able to smash a boulder apart with her [[UseYourHead forehead head]] only a few episodes earlier. Also later in Korra even Metal Benders [[note]] advanced Earth Benders[[/note]] can nothing against Hiroshi Sato's platinum mech suits since platinum is a too refined mineral to bend.
