* Sven the Rogue Knight in ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}''. He's ''extremely strong'' that his skill set includes: Throwing a magically enhanced gauntlet ''so strongly'' that the magical properties get ignored that the enemies in the area where it landed gets stunned; swinging his sword so strongly everyone nearby gets damaged with a big percentage of his strength, yelling so hard everyone gets a boost of speed and toughness, and ultimately, his God's Strength pumps up his already absurd strength to even more godlike levels, it's not that rare to see Sven whacking his enemies to death with his strength and bigass sword.

* From ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', all of the Spartans are capable of lifting a few tons and running at in-human speeds.

* {{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. In the ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' storyline both cousins have a short fight. When Supergirl picks an ''ocean liner'' easily, swats her cousin with it and Superman ''tanks'' it, it becomes apparent how massively strong Kryptonians are.
* ''Comicbook/PowerGirl'' is Supergirl's alternate universe self, and she's even stronger than Supergirl since she's older, her muscles are bigger and she's absorbed sunlight for longer. She's been seen stopping the fall of a spaceship as large as Manhattan.



* ComicBook/WonderWoman. Granted by Demeter (Goddess of the Earth), Diana is literally as strong as the Earth because of her link to the planet granted to her by Demeter. She is said to be "stronger than Hercules". Wonder Woman is as strong as Superman himself and able to physically outmatch other beings such as Supergirl.

* 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.

* ComicBook/{{Thanos}} has faced ComicBook/TheMightyThor, and [[ComicBook/FantasticFour The Thing]] ''at the same time'' and won with minimal damage.[[note]]Although it should be noted that he won through the use of his force-blasts.[[/note]] On another occasion Thor managed to beat him however, but it was retconned as a powerful clone. On one occasion Thanos even managed to hold his own against Odin for a little while, before being beaten.

On one occasion Thanos even managed to hold his own against Odin for a little while, before being beaten. Titanian Eternals in general are far stronger than humans (though weaker than the Eternals on Earth). Thanos is much stronger than the rest of the Titanian Eternals because of the mutation that makes him look like a Deviant.

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', this is the power granted by "One for All". While there are other Quirks that grant enhanced strength, "One for All" puts the rest of them to shame. All Might [[spoiler:relying on the fading dregs of "One for All"]] can topple buildings with the mere shockwaves generated by punching into the air. "One for All" is so powerful that it's actually very dangerous for Deku to use it at full strength [[RequiredSecondaryPowers since it doesn't come with invulnerability]]. Deku has to figure out how to tap into its full power safely so he doesn't accidentally cripple himself for life.

** 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 him down for a second.

to:

** An ''extremely'' common piece of {{Fanon}} was that the entire Earth Pony subspecies gets SuperStrength as a special ability, to correct a perceived "imbalance" between the Pegasi that have flight and unicorns that have magic. This was eventually confirmed in the season four finale, when Celestia notes that [[spoiler: Lord Tirek]] has been absorbing pony magic, she specifically points out that earth ponies got their strength stolen, as opposed to unicorns (who lose their magic abilities) and pegasi (who lose the ability to fly). Earth ponies breaking through walls or doors or being called on to do the heavy lifting is a common sight. Though even considering that, Maud Pie and Big Macintosh are implied to be especially powerful even by Earth Pony standards.
