* Spider-Man did this again when he entered a warehouse to take down a large group of criminals. Accidentally breaking through the roof, he landed on the floor and was immediately set upon by a literal ''army'' of men. One of them yelled "Pile on, guys! I hear Spider-Man's only got the strength of ten men. Too bad for him there's a lot more than ten of us!" In the next panel, Spidey is completely buried under ''dozens'' of men, all kicking, punching, and stomping as hard as they can. Then a calm voice is heard from under the pile. "You men really should pay more attention when you peruse those supermarket yellow-sheets. The correct expression is ''Spider-Man possesses the proportionate strength of a spider.'' He then jumped to his feet, sending everyone on him flying in all directions. ''"AND THAT'S A WHOLE HELLUVA LOT STRONGER THAN TEN MEN!"'' Spidey then proceeded to curb-stomp the entire gang.

* In ''Manga/TigerMask'', Mr. X brags that Tiger's Cave wrestler Lionman is stronger than twenty men, and to prove it he pits him in a tug-o-war with a chain against twenty members of the audience. Lionman not only wins, he ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome pulls them on the ring]]''. Then Great Zebra AKA [[spoiler: Giant Baba]] grabs the chain and matches his strength with a single arm, silently bragging he's stronger than ''fourty''.

* One potion in ''KingdomOfLoathing'' grants Strength of Ten Ettins (although it only increases the character's Muscle by 1/4 of its base value, so adventurers apparently start with the strength of eight Ettins in the first place).

* In the first episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Sealab 2021}}'', the crew gets fixated on the idea of becoming robots; Murphy scoffs at the idea of a robot body with the strength of five mere men, preferring to imagine one with the strength of five ''gorillas'' (which, for the record, comes out to roughly thirty men).
