** In [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002 the 2002 remake]], naturally it's still He-Man. The most obvious example is when he disposes of [[ArtifactOfDoom a several hundred ton tower that turns everyone around it into evil Snakemen]] [[HurlItIntoTheSun by picking it up and tossing into the sun]]. A flashback episode reveals that in a previous generation, the title was held by [[HeroicLineage his ancestor, King Greyskull]]. As in, "ByThePowerofGreyskull".

** [[FakeUltimateHero Mr. Satan]] is ''touted'' in-universe as the world's strongest man, and it might actually be true if only counting [[{{muggles}} humans who rely solely on muscle strength]] rather than being enhanced by KiManipulation. Especially since of the only other serious contenders, Yajirobe has long since gotten fat and lazy and [[BadassNormal Nam]] from the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament arc has long since retired.

* 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...

** Captain Marvel's tagline "World's Mightiest Mortal" originated when he was with Fawcett and there were no real contenders for the title other than Black Adam and (possibly) King Kull. Even when DC licensed the character, he was envisioned as living in the "Earth-S" monoverse and didn't really cross over with the other DC characters much until after the events of ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' merged it with those containing Earths 1, 2, 4, and X. This is another case where DependingOnTheWriter is in full effect (their actual strength is usually treated as TooCloseToCall, but The Big Red Cheese is likely to win a contest of ''opposed'' strength because of the "magic" clause in Superman's vulnerabilities).

Most depictions have them exactly even (or [[TooCloseToCall so close that they might as well be]]) in terms of their basic FlyingBrick powers; Captain Marvel's advantage is his magical nature (and ability to call down [[ShockAndAwe magical lightning]]), while Superman has long-range attacks in his arsenal like heat vision and freezing breath.

** Gohan. At the end of the Cell Saga, he becomes the strongest character after becoming a Super Saiyan 2. By the end of the Buu arc, he was the strongest unfused character after Old Kai unlocked his full power. However, [[BrilliantButLazy he fall behind both times because he lacks the dedication to train unlike his father and Vegeta]]. By the time of ''Resurrection of F'' he can only go up to a base Super Saiyan.

** Goku is the straight version of this trope. Holds this position at various points in the series. By the end of the Buu Arc, he's lost this honor to Gohan, thanks to the power-up he gained from Old Kai. It is strongly hinted in ''Battle of Gods'' that Goku regained this status, which was why Vegeta nearly crapped himself when he heard Goku [[spoiler: lost to Beerus with only two hits. After becoming a Super Saiyan God, Goku was able to fight on par with Beerus. It doesn't last long and he loses his Super Saiyan God form, but kept the memory of godhood, which boost his power to the point that there was no real power difference even as a regular Super Saiyan. Even then, he still loses to Beerus, who only used 70% of his power. In ''Resurrection 'F '' Goku not only mastered Super Saiyan God, but now he can merge it with a regular Super Saiyan, becoming a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan. He's still not on Beerus' level, but he's much closer to closing the gasp and is the strongest thing on Earth.]]

* Rei Ryghts in the ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'' series is the most powerful character in the entire series as she's capable of opening dimensions, distorting dimensions, and if she was ever serious, she could also fuse dimensions together. And in this setting, GodsNeedPrayerBadly but because she was tyrannical and a despot, she had no followers whatsoever. Didn't stop her from doing any of these stunts though. And when she ''does'' get some shares, things went from bad to worse.
