* In the ''VideoGame/''{{Tekken}}'' series, the title probably goes to Craig Marduk. In his (non-canon) ending in Tekken 5, he's show performing feats of strength such as grabbing all the ropes on a side of a boxing ring and simultaneously pulling them until they snapped and punching one of the corner posts so hard it bent around his fist. The only characters in the series shown to exceed these feats were either supernatural beings or combat robots built for extreme strength, while Craig is a normal human.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Even in comparison to the show's other hulking badasses, such as Hodor and Tormund, the Mountain is ''insanely'' strong. Fittingly, as of the fourth season, he's played by the second-strongest man on Earth. After Qyburn's treatment, he seems to be ''even stronger'' but he's not exactly human anymore.

** Goku is the straight version of this trope. He holds this title at various points throughout the series, although he has been upstaged 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 Goku dies) 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 a weird twist, [[BadassNormal Krillin]] ends up being the strongest normal human in the group, although some of his friends like Yamcha are sometimes pointed out giving him a run for his money. That is, if we're not counting Uub (biologically 100% human, but the magical reincarnation of an incredibly powerful djinn) and Tenshinhan (who is, according to the WordOfGod, partially descended from an [[HumanAliens Alien]] race). On the female side of things, both EducationMama Chichi and ActionGirl Videl are alternately pointed out as being the World's Strongest Women, both being ridiculously strong compared to average civilians. Android 18, while technically stronger than both of them, doesn't exactly qualify on the account of being a cyborg.

** [[InvincibleHero Saitama]]. 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.

** Melkor is the mightiest being on the world, able to wage war against all the other Valar, the collectively the mightiest beings on the world who are capable of breaking apart and remaking EA at will, all at once, by himself, and was winning until Tulkas descended upon the planet. Even after Melkor is literally evicted from the planet his will lingers, sowing discord among its creatures until the end of days.
** Tulkas is an interesting case, as he isn't even the third mightiest Valar, but he is the physically strongest. Melkor can manipulate temperature, ice, fire, anything shrouded in darkness, the darkness itself, create powerful storms, change beings more to his likeness, create deadly plagues but if Tulkas gets his hands on Melkor there isn't anything Melkor can do about it. What's more, Melkor became something of a {{dirty coward}} after Tulkas proved he was beatable and Tulkas is also the fastest of the Valar, so an instant of Melkor cowering rather than acting is enough for Tulkas to beat him again. What's more, every Valar needs to rest after using their super powers or their might will start to diminish, every Valar ''except'' Tulkas, who never tires. This is part of Melkor's doing, as he doesn't physically tire, and so continually wreaks havok in the world without allowing his might to recover, the only times he rests being when the rest of the Valar bind him, blind him and leave him in solitary confinement.
** If Ungoliant, [[DiabolusExNihilo a being shrouded in mystery]] from PartsUnknown, did not surpass Melkor as the mightiest being on the world as his might diminished, she did when she drained the life and light of {{the world tree}}s and transformed from the shape of a GiantSpider to one [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm defying description]]. However, like Melkor Ungoliant was a dirty coward who would not so much as tap the land of the Valar if Melkor wasn't with her and retreated back to parts unknown after she learned Melkor's Balrogs could produce fire capable of hurting her even in her transformed state.
** After the Valar, the next mightiest beings are the Maiar, who were called to regulate aspects of the planet the Valar couldn't be bothered with after they were done shaping it. The mightiest of these is Arien, who eventually surpasses Melkor in might as his is diminished corrupting other Maiar into Blarogs, elves into orcs, raising dragons, etc. Fortunately for him she's too busy keeping Arda and the sun in alignment to actively oppose him, though most of Melkor's creatures are repelled by sunlight so she's still a hindrance he has to work around.

** From the start of the present-day story to his death, Nagato/Pain arguably qualified for this, being the strongest member of Akatsuki as well as stronger than the five Kage. In fact, when he is brought back as an Edo Tensei Zombie, he is explicitly stated to be the strongest member of the army outside of [[spoiler: the real Madara Uchiha]], even though said army includes many past Kage and other (in)famous shinobi from days long past.

** [[MartianManhunter J'onn Jonzz]], who Clark previously identifies as the most powerful being on the planet, is often forced to step aside thanks to some plot convenience as he's simply ''too powerful''[[note]]Kryptonians like Clark and Kara went through AdaptationalWimp and lack the full power of their comic book counterparts; J'onn, however, didn't[[/note]], and the few times we see him fight, he's often holding back or about to fall victim to TheWorfEffect. When we see him fight ''without'' holding back however, he utterly curbstomps Kara in seconds, and after being infected with White Martian blood, he easily overpowers the Cyborg Superman, who had previously been shown capable of beating Kara unconscious.

** Even [[spoiler:Zeke, the Beast Titan]] gets almost killed by Levi after underestimating him [[spoiler:despite Reiner and Bertolt's warnings]]. Later, [[spoiler:Zeke]] states that he hopes he never has to face Levi ([[spoiler:or any other Ackermans]]) ever again. This has lead to quite a bit of [[{{Fanon}} fanart]] of them meeting again, and Levi causing [[spoiler:Zeke]] to completely freak out.
