[[spoiler:After getting defeated by Sasuke and dying ''and then'' getting his resurrected form immediately defeated by Itachi without much effort from either of warrior god (to which them, he shoots back seems to have abandoned this goal after he's resurrected again in Chapter 593. Or at least he's willing to admit that he's a human he isn't (currently) capable of this goal - he still says he want to get Sasuke's Sharingan. He also says that he has become more interested in helping people with their own goals, rather than pursuing his own.]] ** Guy has been outright acknowledged as ''the'' best taijutsu user alive, and this is coming from [[spoiler:Madara]], who surpassed godhood instead.) * In ''Manga/FairyTail'', Zeref is regarded as personally fought the First Hokage and judges everyone by that goalpost. ** The Sage of the Six Paths [[spoiler:during his meeting with Naruto in the spiritual plane]] claims that his mother Kaguya was outright the most powerful human mage being to ever live, since she was the one who claimed the power of chakra in history. The only the first place. She was a [[PhysicalGod Physical Goddess]] while he was a "mere" demigod in comparison. * ''Manga/OnePiece'': ** Don Kreig thinks he is this. He's pretty strong, but not even close. ** During his lifetime, the Pirate King Gold Roger was considered to be the strongest man in the world, and Whitebeard was considered to be the closest to his strength. When he died is when the title, by default, went to... ** Whitebeard, who is called the actual world's strongest man... and it's [[{{Badass}} probably not an exaggeration]]. He is powerful enough that the ''World Government'' find it necessary to pool pretty much their ''entire'' military might in preparation for his onslaught when a single crewmember of his is caught and scheduled for execution. Even with all their powers combined, they aren't certain of the outcome. This is partially because [[spoiler:his long unknown Devil Fruit power is to create shockwaves. Big ones. As in "punch an island in two." However, his mere strength alone is still insane, with him stopping an entire ship that was pushed along the ground with his arm and not budging a bit, holding off the strike of a giant with one hand, defeating another giant, also with one hand and beating down [[AntiMagic Power-Nullifier]] Blackbeard, a very strong and powerful pirate in his own right, through strength alone. This is while he was suffering from a terminal illness, as well as being half deaf, half blind, missing half his face, and at death's door. It is implied he was ''way'' stronger twenty or so years ago]], so, if anything, strongest man in the world is an understatement for him. ** In general the Four Emperors, of whom Whitebeard was a member, are considered the strongest people in the world, to the point where Admirals are called in at the merest hint of any movement. Another of the Four Emperors, Kaidou, has been described as the strongest "[[NotEvenHuman creature]]" in the world. *** To put this in perspective, [[spoiler:Donquixote Doflamingo was given a SadisticChoice where he would either be hunted down by the Admirals or incur the wrath of one of the Four Emperors (in this case, his business partner Kaidou). The Admirals are NighInvulnerable combatants whom only the strongest of pirates don't start screaming and running for their lives at the mere ''sight'' of. When his attempt to TakeAThirdOption fails, Doflamingo almost immediately chooses to take his chances with the Admirals. ''That's'' how terrifyingly strong the Four Emperors are.]] * [[InvincibleHero Saitama]] from ''Manga/OnePunchMan''. Like the name of the manga suggests, he is a hero that can defeat any villain with one of his normal punches. This extends from [[UltimateLifeForm genetically modified monsters]], to a [[{{Kaiju}} city-destroying giant]], [[{{Deconstruction}} and it's made him bored of the hero life]] [[VictoryIsBoring because there's no one alive who can give him a challenge]]. Only two major villains so far can hold up against his normal attacks, one being in existence is Acnologia [[spoiler:a Dragonslayer a [[HealingFactor regenerating]] [[AliensAreBastards space pirate]] [[Manga/DragonBallZ Frieza/Goku]] {{Expy}} [[NotSoDifferent who slew shared his problem of being bored of life for being too powerful]] and a [[CardCarryingVillain self-proclaimed]] HeroKiller who [[CurbStompBattle ran roughshod]] over every Hero he went up against [[CameBackStrong and constantly got stronger if he ended up hurt]], and both of them were ultimately beaten without him using even a third of his true power. * In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', Madoka turns out like this, [[spoiler:one-shotting Walpurgis Night]] and all. Too bad it's that kind of show, and the only thing left after [[spoiler:defeating the most powerful witch]] is to [[spoiler:become an even more powerful witch and destroy the world]]. It's at this point where Madoka [[spoiler: surpasses mere physicality when, in accordance with her wish, [[BeyondTheImpossible destroys her own witch]] and [[AbstractApotheosis becomes the concept of hope]]]]. * In the manga ''Rain'', Rain is reputed to be the greatest warrior and general in the world. It's not hard to see why, considering he wields an InfinityPlusOneSword, absorbed the souls of countless dragons power and can turn into one at will, so calling him 'human' would be lifeforce of a stretch -- he doesn't even consider himself dragon, and has yet to decisively lose a battle. The only people who have given Rain a hard time in single combat are the BigBad, a powerful demon king in human anymore anyway.]]form, and an immortal hero who saved the world from demonic invasion centuries ago.

* Sailor Galaxia of ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' fame is the strongest woman in the universe, capable of destroying Tokyo with a warm-up without even bothering to transform and access her full power (nearly happened in the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]]). When she transforms, she can depopulate the world with a small gesture (she did in the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]]) and kill Sailor Senshi and similar enemies without even trying. Cue OhCrap moment when she's found out to be the legendary fhero the Sailor Starlights hoped would avenge them... * The anime of ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' awards this distinction to its incarnation of ToyotomiHideyoshi, whose ability to punch things turns "physics" into a sad joke. Most named characters in the series show the ability to crack the earth with their blows. Hideyoshi uses one to [[spoiler:''split the inland sea''.]] * Black☆Star becomes this by the end of ''Manga/SoulEater'', to the point that even BigBad EldritchAbomination Asura compliments his strength that declares that he's transcended humanity to become some kind of warrior god (to which he shoots back that he's a human who surpassed godhood instead.) * In ''Manga/FairyTail'', Zeref is regarded as ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'', the most powerful human mage Eight Kings of the Gourmet World are the mightiest beasts in history. The only the Gourmet World. One of them [[spoiler:is a Battle Wolf like Terry whose capture level is 6090]]. Another is a giant horse with FromASingleCell functional immortality whose ''hoofprint'' is the size of a mountain range. * Thorkell the Tall in ''Manga/VinlandSaga'', who is able to lift massive tree trunks with his bare hands, impale three men with a single javelin he threw from over a kilometre away, send Thorfinn flying with a single kick, and stop a galloping horse in its track by punching it out. And yet he's not the WorldsBestWarrior. * Sensui from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' -- world's strongest human. Kuwabara later receives the title of world's strongest human. [[spoiler:It's a shame that his other companions are stronger being in existence is Acnologia [[spoiler:a Dragonslayer who slew and absorbed the souls of countless dragons and can turn into one at will, so calling him 'human' would be a stretch -- he doesn't even consider himself human anymore anyway.]]demons.]]

The the world when they were both still alive. This is mainly because a duel between them ended in a draw.

* ''Film/Muscle Beach Party'' features the world's strongest man, Mr. Strangdour, smashing through a wall and saved Frankie (Avalon) from his lunkhead son, just by using an ear twist. Strangdour is played brilliantly by Peter Lorre.

These are just examples of Super Strength. You have to be called the strongest to qualify for this trope. Besides, in The Bridge, they've acknowledged several beings like Destroyah and King Ghidorah as stronger than Godzilla.
* ''FanFic/TheBridge'' gives us an example of this via a subversion of ShapeshifterBaggage. In their normal forms, kaiju are dozens of meters tall and require incredibly strong frames to even hold themselves up against their own weight. When being transformed into native Equestrian forms, they kept a fraction of both their apparent powers and some of this RequiredSecondaryPower. The result is half a dozen Equestrians on par with Celestia or Luna in terms of both powers and [[MadeOfIron durability]]. [[BigGood Godzilla Jr.]] for instance effortlessly able to break out of reinforced chains, curb stomp several royal guards, and then just ''barely'' get knocked unconscious by Princess Luna (who passed out right after) during a [[LetsYouAndHimFight misunderstanding]]. And this was right after he survived crashing through the castle roof and hitting the floor in a daze.

* ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'': ** The King of the Monsters himself, obviously the humans have nothing that is even comparable in the muscle department but also none of the M.U.T.O.s came close to matching him in strength. The female MUTO was almost as large as Godzilla but the big guy can easily overpower her using only one hand and without putting any weight behind it. *** This is consistent with how a bear, which was one of the basis of his fighting style, compares to most other creatures in its habitat. ** Not that the [=MUTO=]s were exactly pushovers. [[spoiler:The ''male'' [=MUTO=], during one of his aerial attacks in the climactic fight, is able to ''drag'' Godzilla a few hundred feet]].

This extends from genetically modified monsters, to a city-destroying giant. Although two major villains can hold up against his normal attacks, he can still defeat a space pirate who was bored of life for being too powerful while holding back.
