* MarvelComics's superhero the 3-D Man has the strength (and agility, and virtually everything else up to and including "triple hearing") of three men (as does his successor, Triathlon.) Triathlon is quick to note that it's three times the ''absolute peak'' of normal human physical ability. In other words, three of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica. ''That'' is saying something.

* Kija from ''Manga/YonaOfTheDawn'' has the strength of ten men in his dragon arm! Only that arm, though, although RequiredSecondaryPowers ensues for how he walks around without having his legs buckle under the weight.

* A minor enemy of ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' once boasted to have the strength of ten men. [[CurbStompBattle The wallcrawler quickly showed him that he is way stronger than that.]]
-->'''Spider-Man''': ''How strong do you think I am? Twenty men? Thirty?''
* 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.

* Silver Banshee is said to have the strength of ten men. While she cannot out-muscle Franchise/{{Superman}}, she can hurt him with her punches and kicks, presumably because her abilities are magic based and Superman is vulnerable to magic.



* In ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', the "[[{{Superman}} Naman]]" is said to have the strength of ten men.

* The [[RingOfPower Ring of Ares]] (Laurin's Ring in the Japanese version) in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'' is described as conferring the strength of twenty-four men. Unfortunately it takes as much as it gives; while it does grant a massive +24 strength boost, it also lowers defense by -24, turning Alucard into a GlassCannon.
