* On an episode of ''Series/StargateSG1'' several team members get devices that give them super-human physical abilities (but seem to make them stupider). Their progress is tested by a beautiful alien who at one point tells Colonel O'Neil that he now has the strength of many men. "So," he says, preening for the beautiful alien (and the eye-rolling of their female doctor), "no change then?"
** Later on, in ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', a Goa'uld boasts he has the strength of ten men. His opponent, [[BadassNormal Ronon]], [[BadassBoast is glad that its a fair fight]]. As with many Goa'uld boasts, this has a grain of truth but is mostly exaggeration and ego (Goa'uld are quite a bit stronger than regular humans, but not to such an extreme. Ronan hands said Goa'uld his ass quite handily.)
