Is there a trope about how in anime, enough training can literally give you superhuman powers? Intense exercise can let you split boulders, jump 3 stories straight up, and make your skin bulletproof, for some reason. A lot of characters in shonen anime have out and out superhuman abilities, as noted by minor characters. And the explanation for such powers is always just "they trained really hard for several years. Train and you too can bash mountains open with your head." Etc. Etc.
