* ''AngelDensetsu'': Takes hit after hit and keeps getting up, moves faster than most people can follow, and if pushed, hits hard enough to literally send humans flying. If Kitano wasn't an ActualPacifist, he'd be this.
** Kitano's father is tougher, stronger, and even faster than him.
** Surprisingly, ''Kuroda'' of all people becomes this when he's drived by the PowerOfLove. He can even compete with ''Kitano's'' speed.
* Most of the Titans in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' are much faster than their large size would suggest, but two particular examples stand out. The Female Titan is ''insanely'' fast, able to keep pace with the Survey Corps' legendary {{Cool Horse}}s and capable of hardening her skin, which provides a boost to her defense ''and'' allows her to hit even harder than a normal Titan. The Armored Titan is one as well, capable of intense bursts of speed without warning. The soldiers watching are horrified, but quickly realize [[spoiler: he's [[ShedArmorGainSpeed shedding the armor at his joints]], exposing his AchillesHeel]] in order to gain speed.
** Levi, [[WorldsStrongestMan Humanity's Strongest Soldier]], is not only scarily fast at maneuvering and killing Titans, he is also tough enough to [[spoiler: take a hit from a Titan Shifter, survive and ''still win''.]]
* Guts from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' moves nearly as fast as {{Fragile Speedster}}s like Judeau and Serpico, wields a {{BFS}} with which he can do as much damage as a MightyGlacier like Pippin (more after he adds an ArmCannon to his arsenal), and can take more punishment than any other unenhanced human in the series bar none. Taken UpToEleven after he gets [[AmplifierArtifact the]] [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Berserker]] [[DeadlyUpgrade Armor]].
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': The captains are supposed to be the pinnacle of power for Gotei 13 shinigami. However, Aizen is strong enough to destroy Komamura's bankai with one sword swing. He can catch even captain-class swords with his bare hands. He's fast enough to make Ichigo (who himself is faster than most captains) think he's teleporting. Aizen once told the captains he had redefined the definition of power, and then demonstrated why by effortlessly defeating every single captain that had ganged up on him.
** Yamamoto is an absurd example of this as his power is enough to destroy soul society, can brutalize espada level arrancar with his bare fists, and keep up with the younger captains shunpo with no effort at all.
** And then there's Ichigo who's Bankai is the personification of this trope and at one point completely [[CurbStompBattle outclasses Aizen of all people]].
** Sui-Feng is the fastest of the current Shinigami captains, but she's on the same level in physical strength as [[MightyGlacier Komamura]], and she has a high endurance, proving that she can still fight even when [[spoiler:her left arm is cut off (she got better)]].
** Not only that Arrancer have ''Hierro'' that gives them SuperToughness, some of the Espada are not only extremely strong, but also very fast. These are Starrk, Baraggan, Harribel, Ulquiorra and Grimmjow. Starrk's ''Sonido'' is nearly on the same level as [[FragileSpeedster Zommari's]], Baraggan is surprisingly fast despite his weight, Harribel could have killed Hitsugaya with her speed if he wasn't prepared for her attack. And Ulquiorra and Grimmjow are as fast as Ichigo, if not even faster.
** More recently, there's Tenjiro Kirinji, who moves so fast that Sui-Feng (again, the fastest of the captains) couldn't even ''tell'' he'd moved behind her until after he'd done it and was restraining her already, meanwhile he can send Ichigo flying with nothing but a smack from a ''wash cloth'' (and after doing so, he clarified that if Ichigo hadn't been in good enough health, that wash cloth attack would very likely have ''killed'' him).
* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' has Acqua of the Back. His punches demolish buildings, he can move faster than the eye can see, and he can NoSell pretty much anything.
* ''CodeBreaker'' revealed [[spoiler:Takatsu Aoba]] to be one.
* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'':
** Spike Spiegel, the best fighter in the ''Bebop'' crew, is this compared to his crew members and most of the enemies he encounters. Despite Jet's larger build and Faye's leaner figure, Spike is the strongest, fastest and toughest person in the crew. Throughout the series, Spike demonstrates his [[BruceLeeClone Jeet Kune Do skills]] as well as being able to [[OneManArmy take on whole groups of armed men]] all the while [[MadeOfIron enduring staggering amounts of pain]].
** Tongpu a.k.a. Mad Pierrot who, in addition to being stronger and faster than Spike, has some sort of energy shield to protect him from attacks. It is later [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] however, [[spoiler:as Spike, using a knife, manages to get past the shield and land a single attack on Tongpu, who then drops to the ground and starts crying that "it hurts".]]
* Many ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' fit this trope when they evolve. Often a far larger Digimon can be faster then its much smaller pre-evolution form in spite of an often MASSIVE size difference.
* Since [[CripplingOverspecialization specialization doesn't work]] in the ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' universe, every character is either this or aspires to this. The general formula in any given arc or movie is that a villain appears who is a LightningBruiser compared to the heroes, Goku goes through TrainingFromHell or otherwise gets a [[TakeALevelInBadass power upgrade]] at which point HE is the LightningBruiser compared to the villain, and everyone else CantCatchUp.
** Pretty much every character from the Namek Arc and beyond is a LightningBruiser. [[TheHero Goku]], [[AntiHero Vegeta]], [[OnlySaneMan Gohan]], [[FiveManBand The Ginyu Force]], [[SmugSuper Frieza]], [[KidFromTheFuture Tru]][[BrattyHalfPint nks]], [[CuteBruiser Goten]], [[TheStoic Piccolo]], [[BrotherSisterTeam Android 17 & 18]], [[UltimateLifeForm Cell]], [[OmnicidalManiac Majin Buu]]... you name em'.
* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', [[PsychoElectro Laxus]] [[AntiHero Dreyar]] is powerful enough to slap [[TheHero Natsu]] around, and dodge most of his attacks. As far as toughness, he's at least Natsu's equal. Special mention in that Laxus uses electric magic, making him a ''literal'' LightningBruiser.
** [[MagicKnight Erza]] as well, even without any magically enhanced armors. The stats given in the Grand Magic Games prove she is this, as well as a GeniusBruiser. [[PowersViaPossession Mirajane]] counts as well, as her stats in the Grand Magic Games match Erza's.
* In ''FistOfTheNorthStar'', the best fighters in the series tend to be both tough-as-nails and lightning fast. Specifically, fighters of Nanto Seiken are much faster and graceful than those of other styles, with Rei, Shu, Yuda and Jyuza being stand-out examples.
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', the Lightning Bruisers are in fact so powerful that a DramaPreservingHandicap is needed to prevent them from being too unbeatable.
** In terms of physical strength, [[spoiler:Sloth]] is one of the [[SuperStrength strongest]] characters in the series. In addition to having an extremely tough skin, [[spoiler:he can also move [[SuperSpeed faster than the eye can see]].]] In effect, making him the strongest and fastest [[spoiler:Homunculus]]. [[spoiler:Sloth]]'s DramaPreservingHandicap: His laziness is such that he [[UnskilledButStrong can't even bother to learn how to control]] his [[spoiler:speed]].
** The Second Greed counts as well. His Ultimate Shield easily makes him the [[MadeofDiamond most durable character]] in the series. He also destroys a truck with one arm and [[OneManArmy easily defeats a squad of Central's soldiers]]. Oh and he's strong enough to fight on almost equal terms with [[spoiler:Wrath/Bradley]]. As for speed, he manages to keep up with and dodge most of [[spoiler:Pride's and Wrath's]] incredibly fast attacks, even at one point [[FlashStep showcasing the easy-to-miss speed]] that [[spoiler:Sloth]] possesses. Greed's DramaPreservingHandicap: for ''some'' reason, in his fights, Greed [[ForgotAboutHisPowers only shields his arms instead of his whole body]]. He'd practically be immune to physical attacks if he did.
*** He actually gives his reason for not shielding his whole body shortly after the first Greed's appearance: ''he doesn't like the way his face looks when it's shielded''.
** Alex Louis Armstrong is one of the fastest fighters in the show, despite his large, muscular physique. In an early fight with Scar, who is fast enough to dodge gunfire, Scar commented on how his combined speed and near superhuman strength, along with the power of his alchemy, made him a formidable foe. At one point, Armstrong moved even faster than [[spoiler:Sloth]].
* Larger mobile suits in {{Gundam}} series often have numerous boosters and verniers to compensate for their size. The titular ZZGundam, for instance, is one of the largest headliner suits for a series, but also incredibly fast. Such suits often function the best in space. However, the Byarlant Custom from ''GundamUnicorn'' can also move ridiculously quicly for its size while in the atmosphere.
** For more conventional mobile suits, the Gouf Custom from ''The08thMSTeam'' fits the bill. Fast as a thief, as well armored as a tank and armed with a [[{{BFG}} 75mm gatling gun]] on one arm and a [[{{BFS}} scimitar styled heat sword]] in the other, it's the ideal ground fighter for any ace pilot, as evidenced by [[{{Badass}} Norris Packard]]'s famous rampage.
* In ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty'', Astraea is considered among the strongest and fastest of the Angeloids. She's even stronger than Ikaros, and while Ikaros is slightly faster, Astraea is more agile. She can stop and turn on a dime when going at super speed.
* Alucard in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' is fast enough to keep up with {{Fragile Speedster}}s like the Dandy Man. He has an insanely quick HealingFactor that [[MadeOfIron renders him impossible to injure for more than a few seconds]] by any mundane means or most supernatural ones. Even if you get past that, he canonically cannot be killed unless you kill the shades of every person he's ever [[ImAHumanitarian eaten]], an army of ''millions''. An army which he can summon at will on the off chance that he's up against something that can't be taken down by his already-formidable personal bag of offensive tricks.
* In ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', [[KidHero Gon Freeccs]] is very fast, you can beat the shit out of him, but [[{{Determinator}} he will not give up]], and even before he learnt his MegatonPunch, he had enourmous strength.
** [[Manga/YuYuHakusho Hiei's]] {{Expy}} [[{{Deuteragonist}} Killua]] [[ProfessionalKiller Zoldyck]] is not only strong and fast like him, but he has also a very high endurance, and he will not fall down that easily like his FragileSpeedster counterpart.
** [[MonsterClown Hi]][[StageMagician so]][[WildCard ka]] is not only stronger and faster than our heroes, he's also tends to ignore pain.
** [[GeniusBruiser Knuckle]] is also stronger than Gon and Killua, and he runs fast since his childhood. And he is definitely tough.
** [[BadassGrandpa Isaac Netero]] takes this trope UpToEleven. And The [[BigCreepyCrawlies Chimera Ant King]] [[PhysicalGod Meryuem]] even hundred times more than him.
* In ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'', Jotaro's and Dio's Stands, Star Platinum and The World, are two of the strongest, most durable, and ''fastest'' Stands in the series. The World [[spoiler:and eventually Star Platinum too]] is so fast that TimeStandsStill because ''it can't keep up with The World''.
* Pretty much anyone wearing a Kamui in ''Anime/KillLaKill''. They're stupid strong, strong enough to make craters ''behind'' hits, make shockwaves from ''pure willpower'', and defeat multiple enemies with one strike. They're ridiculously durable, able to take devastating hits without flinching, and survive what would be a finishing move for any other uniform. And to top it all off, they rocket around the battlefield at blinding speeds. Definite LightningBruiser.
** ''Kill la Kill'' actually has ''tiers'' of {{Lightning Bruiser}}s. Compared to a normal human, anyone in a Goku Uniform is a LightningBruiser, and each Goku Uniform gets progressively more powerful depending on the number of stars the uniform has. The first fight of the series demonstrates this by pitting an unnamed student in a One Star Uniform against Three Star student council member [[{{Badass}} Ira Gamagoori]]. [[CurbStompBattle It doesn't end well]]. A Kamui is the equivalent of a '''Ten''' Star Uniform. [[spoiler:A Life Fiber hybrid is even more powerful, capable of soundly defeating even a Kamui wearer.]]
* In ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'', we have several examples.
** The knights Signum and Zest Grangaitz are extremely strong, they can keep up with the fastest people, and they have strong defenses.
** The ground mages Subaru Nakajima and Ginga Nakajima are not as fast as the fastest FragileSpeedster, but they are much faster than most people and they have the advantage that they can move in buildings better and faster than ''any'' aerial mage; they are also very strong and their main strategy is a OneHitKill, and unlike the other [[{{Cyborg}} Combat Cyborgs]], they are neither {{Fragile Speedster}}s nor {{Glass Cannon}}s.
** Einhard Stratos, Miura Rinaldi and Sieglinde Jeremiah hit hard, are very fast, and they don't go down easily. This becomes more obvious when [[FragileSpeedster Vivio]] fought the former two, dealing much less damage than them. And Sieglinde is even better than them in terms of strength, speed and defense.
** Deville of Hückebein is TheBrute who ''[[TeleportSpam teleports]]'' in battle. Unfortunately for him, [[FragileSpeedster Fate]] [[SuperSpeed Testarossa-]][[FragileSpeedster Harlaown]] is still faster than him.
* A, the Fourth Raikage from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', is a literal example of this trope. Normally, he's an [[LargeAndInCharge enormous]] ScaryBlackMan who is capable of breaking down walls ''by punching them''. Once in battle, he can [[LightningCanDoAnything use lightning chakra]] to boost his speed and reflexes to ludicrously high levels as well as shield himself. He's able to keep up with the [[FlashStep extremely fast]] Sasuke, even blitz him a few times, dodge [[spoiler:Jugo's BeamSpam at point-blank range]], and dodge [[spoiler:Sasuke's Amaterasu, a devastating fire attack that ignites whatever the user is looking at.]] Defensively, it can also block a sword that can easily cut through steel weapons and severely weaken an attack that could blow straight through stone. He ''was'' the fastest character in the manga since Minato Namikaze, who used deliberate TeleportSpam. The Tsuchikage, Onoki, can make him even faster by casting a jutsu on him that lightens him, and then increases his weight at the exact moment of impact for stopping power.
** His father, the Third Raikage is also a LightningBruiser. [[spoiler: He can move as fast as A's initial level of speed, and even dodged the [[RazorWind Futon]]: [[SphereOfDestruction Rasenshuriken]] ''twice'' despite being blinded and the attack coming from behind him. Note, the Futon: Rasenshuriken is so fast it can cross an ''entire mountain range in less than a second'', making it at mach 70 speeds.]]
** Naruto Uzumaki himself is quite the LightningBruiser when he's in [[spoiler: his Sage Mode, Kurama Chakra Mode, and Biju Mode. In Sage Mode, he's strong enough to toss 10,000 ton 91 meter tall rhinos into the stratosphere and fast enough to blitz a rocket propelled Asura Path without any Pain being able to react AND keep up with the aforementioned Third Raikage. Kurama Chakra Mode is strong enough to lift massive, incredibly dense Bijudama's with one arm and is faster than the Fourth Raikage A. And in Biju Mode he's fast enough to save Kakashi and Gai from being blasted off the face of the earth from five Bijudama's-and he sends all five flying to the next zip code just by tapping and moving past them!]]
** Tobirama Senju is becoming a LightningBruiser. [[spoiler:He's fast enough to tag the newly empowered Obito without even knowing it and can crater a wall just by pushing his hand against it.]]
** Not to be outdone, [[WorldsStrongestMan Hashirama Senju]] is also a LightningBruiser. [[spoiler:He has the Senju lifeforce which means he has a massive amount of physical strength like his granddaughter Tsunade, and he's fast enough to ''outrun'' a Bijudama launched by [[PowerArmor Susanoo Kurama]]. Note, the Bijudama clocks at ''Mach 143'' in sheer speed.]]
** [[ActionGirl Sakura Haruno]] becomes one [[spoiler: after completing her [[PowerTattoo Yin Seal]]. She uses her SuperStrength to punch a target, despite it moving at a fast speed, easily keeps pace with it...then smashes it with a tremendous impact.]]
** [[BigBad Tobi]][[spoiler:/Obito]] was already an [[{{Intangibility}} intangible]] [[SuperToughness tough]] man who consistently [[NighInvulnerability tanked fatal injuries yet survived]], and was a [[SuperStrength strong]] OneManArmy who was fast enough to keep up with a [[spoiler:Chakra Mode Naruto]]. But after becoming the [[spoiler:Jinchuriki of the Jubi, Tobi has literally become the WorldsStrongestMan who easily withstands and breaks all the Four Hokages' seal and then proceeds to destroy the First and Second Hokages with terrifying power and speed ''in just a few seconds'']].
* In ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Luffy, Zoro and Sanji, known as "The Monster Trio", are the three strongest crew members of the Straw Hat Pirates. They're also the fastest people in the crew who can take severe amounts of damage.
** Admiral Kizaru, whose light powers not only inflict MASSIVE damage but also allow him to be intangible and travel at the speed of light.
** While everyone of the [=CP9=] who mastered the [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Rokushiki]] is a LightningBruiser, thanks to the abilities [[FlashStep Soru]] and [[SuperToughness Tekkai]] and their enourmous strength, Jabra is the most notable one because he's the only member who can move while using Tekkai.
** Jinbei, while a Lightning Bruiser on land, is especially formidable underwater. Moria lampshades it: "You're fast for a big fellow!" And post-timeskip, he kept up with Luffy.
** Whitebeard, full stop. This guy isn't called "The World's Strongest Man" for shits and giggles. He's been thought of as more of a freaking ''force of nature''. As of [[spoiler: his last battle]], Whitebeard was already an elderly man in his 70's (WELL out of his prime) stricken with terminal illness, of which he was in a highly advanced stage no less. During [[spoiler:his final fight]], he was taking breaks because his heart was ''giving out on him''. Even then, Whitebeard {{flash step}}ed Akainu, an ''Admiral'' who didn't even notice until he was warned of Whitebeard's ambush, and promptly knocked him unconscious with a single hit. To top this already impressive feat, Whitebeard [[spoiler:had HALF HIS FACE burned off]] and still went on to split an island in HALF.
* ''OutlawStar'' has the resident CatGirl Aisha, who is not only super strong but also incredibly durable and very agile, which could apply to her entire species, the Ctarl-Ctarl. The only other crew member who comes close is Suzuka, who outclasses Aisha in speed and has very deadly sword techniques, but is otherwise a normal human.
* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', Hiko Seijuro, [[WordofGod stated by the writer]] to be ''[[GodModeSue THE]]'' [[StoryBreakerPower most powerful and skilled]] character in the series, is ''stronger'', ''faster'' and most importantly, ''tougher'' than Kenshin (and everyone else).
* ''Manga/SailorMoon'' has Minako Aino. The manga shows her tolerating good amounts of pain, perform a FlashStep and take down ''Makoto'' (that has explicit SuperStrength) with ''[[OneHitKO a single kick]]'', but the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]] brought her UpToEleven: having someone look in your Dream Mirror is so painful to make people faint and stay out for a while, yet Minako resisted more than anyone else in spite of having ''two'' villains looking through it ([[TooKinkyToTorture and was apparently excited by the experience]]) and recovered in a couple minutes; right after her painful experience, she ''broke through metal manacles'' (Artemis was scared when she did this, but considering he had just told her to do it it's probable he was scared by her being [[UnstoppableRage beyond furious]]) before single-handedly [[CurbStompBattle utterly kicking the ass of Hawk's Eye, Tiger's Eye and]] ''[[CurbStompBattle two]]'' [[MonsterOfTheWeek Lemures]]; and she can ''outrun cars'' after having her Pure Heart Crystal extracted (anyone else just fainted due the extreme weakness).
* Yusuke Urameshi from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' is fast, ''strong'' and '''tough''' like hell.
