*Paul's pride at being the strongest man in the world gets cruelly shot down in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', when Andro casually informs him that he's the ''eighth'' strongest person they know about. Of course, this is with Paul at his low level of strength. At high he's certainly still the strongest, but [[DeadlyUpgrade he doesn't dare go to that level...]] and he's also terribly jealous that Andro, now effectively the strongest person in the world, can behave like a normal human being, while Paul suffers from PowerIncontinence.

* There is the Creator/MarvelComics character Champion of the Universe, one of the Elders of the Universe. His first appearance had him dropping in for a fight for the fate of Earth with many heroes either being defeated or disqualified for not fighting the way he liked. He ends up being so impressed by his final opponent, the Thing, that he spares Earth.

** Goku is the straight version of this trope. He holds this title at various points throughout the series although he has been upstage several times. After Piccolo merges with Kami, he become the strongest of all the heroes and Gohan held this title after the Cell Games once he become a Super Saiyan 2 and the end of Buu Arc once old Kai awakened all of Gohan's hidden power. By ''[[Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods Battle of Gods]]'' it's strongly hinted that Goku regains this status, which is why Vegeta freaks out when he hears [[spoiler:Goku lost to Beerus with only two hits]]. After becoming a Super Saiyan God, Goku is able to fight on par with Beerus. [[spoiler:It doesn't last long and he loses his Super Saiyan God form, but keeps the memory of godhood, which boosts his power to the point that there is no real power difference even as a regular Super Saiyan. Even then, he still loses to Beerus, who only uses 70% of his full power. In ''[[Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF Resurrection 'F']]'', Goku not only mastered Super Saiyan God, but can now he merge it with his regular Super Saiyan form, becoming a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan (or Super Saiyan Blue). He's still not on Beerus' level, but he's much closer to closing the gap and is the strongest thing on Earth]]. In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', [[spoiler:after the revelation that Monaka isn't the powerful fighter that Beerus makes him out to be, Goku becomes the strongest mortal fighter in Universe 7]].

** In the manga Eternal Sailor Moon is eventually able to claim the position after beating Galaxia, depending on one counting Sailor Cosmos (who comes from the future) or not. In terms of ''physically'' strongest in the universe, however, it's either Sailor Venus or Sailor Uranus, both of which have defeated Sailor Jupiter (usually considered the physically strongest, after them) with the same ease-[[OneHitKO one hit]] (a kick from Venus, and a judo move from Uranus). Which of them is strongest, however, remains a mystery, as they never had any reason to fight.

* Bamm-Bammfrom ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' is billed as the strongest baby in the world, and in later cartoons the strongest teen in the world. By the time of "Hollyrock a-bye baby", his and Pebble's baby daughter Roxy is the new strongest baby in the world.

* There are several people in the ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' games who can claim the title. There's Jubei, who is word for word described as the world's strongest living being, but suffers a GameBreakingInjury caused by [[spoiler:Phantom and Terumi]]. There's Hakumen, who is noted as being far more powerful than anyone else in the cast even though he only currently has access to 20-40% of his power. And then there's Azrael, who, to put it bluntly, is an unstoppable juggernaut; even the previously-mentioned Hakumen refuses to fight him in a prolonged battle and prefers retreat to trying to take him down.

* In the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'', [[TheDragon General Hercules Beetle]] is presented as this, at least for his own species. Most Changelings are no match for an Earth Pony in physical strength (Changelings' specialty is stealth, in all other areas they're [[MasterOfNone far weaker]] compared to the other types of ponies), Hercules Beetle is on par with one in a test of strength (and that's before [[spoiler:he goes OneWingedAngel]]) and is stated to be the 'second most dangerous Changeling in existence' behind Queen Chrysalis herself by the Interviewers, and even then it's not clear if she's actually ''physically'' stronger than he is even if she's undoubtedly got more power than him. He shows this by being able to fight ''ten'' very powerful ponies ''at once'' for a prolonged period of time, including some of Equestria's best Royal Guards, several Gifted Unicorns, and a black belt [[spoiler:, and just barely loses.]] [[spoiler:With Chrysalis' death (which resulted in the Changeling Queen's {{Reincarnation}} into an infant Zebralicorn), Hercules is now undoubtedly the strongest Changeling on the planet.]]

** Queen Majesty is stated during the Rumors Arc to be the strongest unicorn royal who has ever lived. During her OriginsEpisode, her power is shown in full, and is outright said by the First Spellcaster of an elf kingdom she spends time in to be the strongest magic user he'd ever seen. She shows this by curbstomping an entire coven of witches (of Hydia's clan, who are stated to be much stronger) with no effort and no formal training.

** 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.

* [[InvincibleHero Saitama]] from ''Webcomic/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 a [[HealingFactor regenerating]] [[AliensAreBastards space pirate]] [[Anime/DragonBallZ Frieza/Goku]] {{Expy}} [[NotSoDifferent who 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.

** [[MindOverMatter Tatsumaki]] takes the title of the WorldsStrongestWoman on account of holding Rank 2 in the [[FantasticRankSystem S-Class]] of the Hero Association and thus being the highest ranked female hero in the series (and since the #1 rank is a no-show most of the time, she essentially ''is'' the Association's ace in the hole). She regularly [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomps]] monsters that give even her fellow S-Class heroes trouble, and it says something that when going up against the more powerful MonsterOfTheWeek she's the only other hero aside from Saitama who can actually be counted on to win.

* Speaking of the World's Strongest Man, this is basically the goal of TheHero Monkey D. Luffy, who wishes to beat all competitors and claim the mythical treasure One Piece for himself. He's not there ''yet'', but he inches ever closer each passing arc...
