[[caption-width-right:350: [[{{Badass}} He's all right.]] [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=226 Just get him some bandages.]]]]

-> ''"A foe with no known superpowers, who somehow survives being crush by a car not once...not twice...but four f***ing times!"''
-->-- '''Narrator''', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKCF63Ux4x8 Honest Trailers - Iron Man 2]]'', on Whiplash in his first appearance in the film.

Damage is frequently done to characters that should hurt or incapacitate them, but is easily shaken off. Nobody ever breaks a rib or other bones unless [[ChekhovsGun that specific broken bone becomes important later on]].

This isn't SuperToughness or NighInvulnerability, where the character ''is'' supernaturally protected from harm. This is the ability to shrug off blows that would disintegrate a human body when you technically shouldn't be able to do so. Robots, Mutants, Mages, [[KiAttacks Ki using Martial Artists]], etc. ''do not count.'' Having a story-enabled reason for not being a bloody smear immediately takes one out of the running for this trope.

Certain RequiredSecondaryPowers may also induce this and it is particularly true for SuperHero characters to have "increased strength and endurance" in their portfolio, even if never outright explained or stated. How else can someone whose sole power is [[PlayingWithFire throwing flame]] take being thrown off a multi-story building as no big deal? The line gets fuzzy between BadassNormal and CharlesAtlasSuperpower where somehow a "normal" person has become invulnerable to the effects of RealLife by [[HeroicWillpower willing themselves uninjured]]. Modern special effects are somewhat to blame for this, as they frequently up the forces involved to look more dramatic. This sometimes approaches cartoon-esque extremes, such as a person getting [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom smashed through concrete or brick walls]] and being able to get right back up again with only negligible injury.

By extension, blunt damage, [[HardHead concussions]], and other side effects of "non-lethal" fights or a TapOnTheHead never have unintended fatal consequences -- death can only happen with intentionally-lethal weapons, like swords or guns. Even with [[SetSwordsToStun normally-lethal weapons]], the hero may intentionally inflict [[OnlyAFleshWound flesh wounds]] instead of shooting to kill.

This trope also enables our hero to take a bullet in some critical area (chest, shoulder, etc) and [[JustAFleshWound continue to fight as though nothing had happened]], even if they should be OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank.

It makes you wonder why, for all the supposed beatings they have received themselves over the course of a show, the hero/heroine never suffers any long-term scarring or [[HollywoodHealing lasting physical injury]]. One especially tenacious example is the lack of punch drunkenness. Indeed, unrealistic lack of damage from head injuries leads to the widely prevalent subtrope: HardHead.

Punch-drunk boxers are the classic real-life example of what happens to someone who takes repeated pummeling damage in many fights year after year. However, the American National Football League presents a better sampling. To survive more than a couple of seasons in the league is a guarantee of a lifetime of painful, lingering damage to battered joints, bones, and connective tissues. That life is also going to be about ten years shorter than that of the average adult American. The heart and body organs build up scar tissue likely to fail when the athlete is in his fifties and sixties. This condition is known as DentedIron.

Between them, MadeOfIron and HollywoodHealing cover the two main varieties of action hero -- the [[ImplacableMan Terminator-type]] that can walk unscathed through a bomb-blast, and the hero who ''does'' get hurt badly but somehow always comes back to triumph in the end.

The polar opposite of this is MadeOfPlasticine. A character who doesn't just shrug off extreme damage, but doesn't sustain any damage at all, is MadeOfDiamond, a subset of NighInvulnerability. Characters who are Made of Iron, if they die at all, often die {{Rasputinian Death}}s. If two Made of Iron characters go up against each other, it often leads to HowMuchMoreCanHeTake fights. Not to be confused with [[RobotMaid Maid of Iron]].

A character who is Made of Iron isn't necessarily literally [[ChromeChampion made]] of [[AnimatedArmor iron]]. If he happens to sink in water and die as if he were, that's SuperDrowningSkills.

If a person has this kind of durability as a superpower, it's SuperToughness. When the character ''does'' sustain grisly, incapacitating injuries but keeps going anyway, it's NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow.

[[folder:Fan Fiction]]
* In the JackieChanAdventures and ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' crossover fic ''Fanfic/AShadowOfTheTitans'', Jade lampshades how tough the Titans and other inhabitants of the TT world are. Subverted with Kitten, who foolishly insults Jade in the Tournament of Villainesses, hitting a BeserkButton and causing her to get blasted by the Dragon Talisman, nearly killing her and giving Jade an MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment (she lampshades the inconsistency).
* In the JackieChanAdventures fic ''Fanfic/QueenOfAllOni'' by the same author, this version of Jade has increased strength, a HealingFactor, and increased durability after her transformation, and has been thrown through walls and down hills and gotten right back up afterwards (she claims she DOES bruise, but it can't be seen against her skin).
* [[KillerRobot Shadow]] from ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'', who at one point survives [[KillItWithFire several blasts of fire]], [[MakeMeWannaShout the Scream Horn]], ''and'' [[FrickinLaserBeams several lasers]] from the heroes.
* ''FanFic/ClashOfTheElements'': Alex Whiter has a ridiculous record of getting hit with attacks that would kill any normal human, which is a bit crazy considering that in spite of his flight he only has an above-average level of strength. Of course, when one takes into considering his {{Determinator}} status...
* The two best examples of this trope in ''FanFic/YouGotHaruhiRolled'' are Haruhi surviving a blimp crashing on her, and Kyouko surviving get thrown under a trolley, [[TheCatCameBack much to Sasaki's annoyance]].
* In ''Fanfic/ToyHammer'', you would think Mike would kill two dozen of the [[RedShirtArmy miniature]] [[WeHaveReserves soldiers]] a day just walking though his house, and that any of the scouts trying to hide in his handbag would get liquefied in a matter of seconds. You'd be wrong.
* ''FanFic/RosarioVampireBrightestDarkness'': Dark Kuyumaya is able to take such things as being impaled by {{Sinister Scythe}}s, having his blood drained by a crazed Tsukune, and having his [[{{Fingore}} fingers broken]] and his leg shredded by Ceal, and keep on going like nothing happened. He even outright says he has a high pain tolerance.
* In the fanfic ''Fanfic/TailsOfTheOldRepublic'', a crossover/ FusionFic between ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' and the videogame ''Franchise/StarWars: VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', Tails the fox averts his usual OneHitPointWonder status even without Power Rings, and takes damage like anyone else. However, he can take a ''crapload'' of damage nonetheless, surviving even [[spoiler:getting torn to shreds by a rakghoul swarm and even getting eaten by a rancor monster!]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Gru from ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe''. He was able to survive the rockets and missiles from Vector's base, with the exception that he's completely covered with ash.
* Nigel from ''{{WesternAnimation/Rio}}''. Although he survived the turbines of the smuggler's plane, he lost most of his feathers and was made fun by the marmosets.
* Kent Mansley of ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'' is always getting bashed into things but manages to pop back up again. Maybe he's just that serious about stopping the robot.
* Jack Skellington of ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' manages to get shot down by ''anti-aircraft flak guns'' without being blown to pieces. This could be justified, however, by the coffin sleigh taking most of the blow. However, this does not explain how at least a ''mile-high fall onto a stone angel'' didn't break any of his bones (the impact from the fall ''did'' seem to be strong enough to knock off his jawbone, however). This all still could be justified by the fact that Jack's undead, so he would not feel pain, if it weren't for an earlier scene where [[StalkerWithACrush Sally]] accidentally pokes Jack's finger with a needle, and he yelps in pain. [[MindScrew It's a little confusing]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* Music/TheProclaimers in the video for "There's a Touch", who walk away only moderately harmed from falling a lethal height off a building, getting hit by a car, and having a helicopter land right on top of them. One of them has his trouser leg set on fire at the end of it, but he continues walking away ignoring it.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* Because he personifies most bruiser tropes, it's no surprise that ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} was Made of Iron back when he got his start on ''Thimble Theatre''. In his first few story arcs, Popeye takes some brutal beatings and manages to come out on top. When in one fight he takes several handgun rounds in the gut, he manages to still win the fight before passing out. In the hospital, in addition to the bullets that put him there, knife blades, tips of pool cues and many, many other indications that you should see the other guy.
** The animated cartoons take this even further. Bullets ''bounce'' off him.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* ProfessionalWrestling can wander into this when things go wrong and sometimes even when they go right, generally missed completely by the tendency for people to think "knowing how to fall" equates to "falls don't hurt." See [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=0qFWaCoe78k Hell in the Cell,]] where Wrestling/MickFoley suffered a concussion, broken ribs, and a ''dislocated shoulder'' after falling from a twenty-foot height ''twice,'' and still finished the match.
* Another great example is Wrestling/KurtAngle. For the uninitiated, he was in the summer Olympics with a broken neck. No, he didn't get it during the wrestling tournament, he had it before the tryouts. Not only did he convince them to let him compete, he won the gold medal. While he's at times injury prone, his neck at least is made of titanium. This is an understandably large point of pride both for his character and in real life.
-->"I won an Olympic Gold Medal with a ''broken freakin' neck''."
* Japanese female wrestlers can take piledrivers, powerbombs, and DDT's from the top rope onto steel chairs and tables, ''several times in the same match''.
* Wrestling/TheUndertaker. At Elimination Chamber 2010, Taker was making his way to the ring in his usual grand fashion (Smoke, fireballs, really slow walk, etc.). Undertaker did his usual pause at the top of the ramp, and was engulfed in flames by an errant fireball. Playing it off as being [[IncrediblyLamePun fired up]], he ran to the ring, and proceeded to wrestle an entire Elimination Chamber match. He then lost his World Heavyweight Championship to Wrestling/ChrisJericho, but nobody's perfect.
* {{Kayfabe}} example: Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin uses a forklift to drop a car with Wrestling/TripleH inside from a great height to end Survivor Series 2000. Triple H returns the next week with a bandage.
* Wouldn't you believe it but Wrestling/ZackRyder has become one. In the month of January 2012, he's been assaulted by Wrestling/{{Kane}} in ways that other wrestlers his size would be dead by now. He's been dropped from ten feet in the air, had three powerbombs on his cracked ribs, got chokeslammed through the stage before ''finally'' having to be put away with a Tombstone Piledriver by Kane at the Royal Rumble before he has to be put out for a while.
* Wrestling/ChrisJericho has only suffered two serious injuries to his body in his entire life. One was a broken arm caused by his own stupidity (practicing dives without a mat). The second was a herniated disk, which he suffered training during ''Series/DancingWithTheStars''. Keep in mind he's been in more Elimination Chambers than anyone else, been in more than a few brutal TLC matches, worked for several promotions that specialized in [[GarbageWrestler Garbage Wrestling]], and works a hard-hitting, high-risk style in which several peers have destroyed their own bodies.
* '''DEAR GOD''', Wrestling/TerryFunk. The amount of stuff he's went through, it's amazing.
* Wrestling/CodyRhodes is one of those WWE wrestlers who doesn't get injured very often. Case in point, during the November 14, 2012 episode of {{WWE Main Event}}, Rhodes suffered a strained shoulder. Miraculously, Rhodes returned on the December 10, 2012 episode of {{WWE RAW}} (sporting a mustache, nonetheless).

[[folder:Sports]]
* Olympic skier Hermann Maier's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yu2kexdW3a8 spectacular crash]] at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. High winds caused an unintentional ski jump. He flew through the air, hit the ground headfirst at 70 miles per hour, bounced, tumbled, and smashed through two wire-and-slat fences before coming to a stop. And then ''he picked himself up and walked back up the hill'', rubbing his shoulder (he also had a minor leg injury). A few days later, he won gold medals in two events. [[http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/sports/longterm/olympics1998/sport/alpine/articles/wilbon14.htm A news article about the event]] began with the words, "The Tough Man contest is over. Forever. The winner is Hermann Maier." And he almost lost his leg after a traffic accident but continues to win -- his nickname "Herminator" is well deserved.
* Hockey player Gordie Howe was said to get a goal, an assist, and a fight in every game. He continued playing in the NHL into his fifties, even through its notoriously violent era, long enough to play with his grown sons. After his retirement, he even suited up for a charity game in the minors, whereupon a local radio DJ offered a large cash prize to any player on the opposing team who fought Howe, by then in his seventies. No-one was stupid enough to take up the offer.
* In a similar vein, Toronto Maple Leaf Bobby Baun scored the game winning goal of game six of the 1963-1964 Stanley Cup finals after sustaining a broken ankle earlier in the game.
* [[http://www.classicalfencing.com/articles/bloody.php This classical fencing article]] discusses how unreliable a sword-inflicted wound could be in ending a duel.
* Jake Brown, 2007 X Games skateboard contender, lost control of his board and fell 45 feet to the deck below (clip is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Q3PNj3tRW4 here]]). After a dazed few minutes, he ''got up'' and was able to walk out under his own power.
* George Chuvalo, a former heavyweight boxer, was known to have one of the toughest chins in history. He faced some of the most devastating punchers in history and was never knocked down as a professional in 93 fights (his two technical knockout losses came when the referee stopped the fights). In fact in his fight against George Foreman (a man whose punch normally [[MegatonPunch sends mere mortals to the moon]]), Chuvalo complained to the referee after the fight was stopped.
* Though both have become more vulnerable as they've aged, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Hunt Mark Hunt]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antônio_Rodrigo_Nogueira Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira]] were each known for this. Hunt was known for shrugging off life-threatening strikes as mere annoyances, while Nogueira was known for taking immense amounts of punishment, but still somehow managing to not only survive, but to ''win''.
* Bert Trautmann, football (soccer) goalkeeper active in the 1950s. During the 1956 FA Cup Final, he was injured in a collision with an opponent. With 17 minutes to go, and no substitutes allowed, he shook off the injury and continued. He saved several goals, preserving his team's lead and helping to win the match. The injury? Merely a broken neck.
* Jack Youngblood played the entire 1979 playoffs and Super Bowl, AND the meaningless Pro Bowl game with a broken tibula. Because of this, he was called “the John Wayne of football”.
* Steve Yzerman played on essentially on one leg due to having a blown out right knee during the 2002 Stanley Cup playoffs.
** He didn't just show up in his uniform and serve as a backup, either. He was Main/TheCaptain of the eventual champion Detroit Red Wings that year, and was the second-leading scorer of the entire tournament with 23 points in 23 games.
* Donovan [=McNabb=] played on a broken ankle for most of a 2002 regular season game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtFvR7QRmow Fedor Emilianenko vs. Kevin Randleman]]. Fedor got hit with possibly the most perfect suplex in history, impacting the mat with all of his own weight plus all of Randleman's weight directly onto his spinal column. He calmly turned around and made Randleman tap out.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'', {{Ron|aldReagan}}nie [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20060125.html gets shot]] by a robber, then [[http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20060201.html takes out the criminal]] using nothing but PatrioticFervor.
* ''RPGWorld'' often [[http://rpgworldcomic.com/d/20001201.html plays with]] this trope.
* O-Chul from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has survived: being hit, whilst paralysed, by an explosion ''right next to him'' that destroyed a castle; fighting a shark whilst tied up and impaled by spikes in a tank of acid; (offscreen) having a staring contest with a basilisk; and being Disintegrated, electrocuted, and hit with a Meteor Swarm. The villains have taken to placing him in psychotically dangerous situations simply to bet on his survival. This is a man who has ChuckNorris jerky for breakfast.
-->'''O-Chul:''' [This is] Xykon's spell list. Or most of it, anyway.\\
'''Roy:''' Are you kidding?!? How did you get this??\\
'''O-Chul:''' One saving throw at a time.
** WordOfGod states that O-Chul's Constitution score is in the ''mid-twenties''. In comparison, the average Constitution (health) score is ten. 18 is the normal 1st level human ''maximum''. Normal play rules give a +1 increase to one stat every 4 levels, and 'maximum' level tends to be 20. So even assuming he's level 20 (which he isn't) his CON would still only be 23. All this sacrificing all the others abilities. This means he probably has the Hit Points of an average character ''twice his level''. Also, paladins are traditionally loaded down with class features and abilities that make them rather hard to kill — but O-Chul has mostly fighter levels. Hinjo even remarks that he is the "toughest" Sapphire guardsman.
* Steve from Webcomic/LifeAndDeath in his fight with himself.
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''
** Bun-Bun has shrugged off attacks that would kill an ordinary human being, made all the more impressive by the fact that he's a ''rabbit''. At one point he was actually eaten alive by an alien, and simply burst his way out of the alien's stomach and proceeded to kick its butt. Bun-Bun has an origin even he is not clear about; he was bought from a Magical Store.
** Oasis might also count. She's been through many NoOneCouldSurviveThat moments, including two explosions and a sniper bullet to the head. How she does this is not yet explained, and may or may not be a superpower she was given by Dr. Steve. Her "sister" Kusari has also survived being stabbed through the chest and even ''decapitated'', again by means unexplained.
* Webcomic/SuperwholockTheComic: Castiel. Dean discusses this with Rose.
* The entire cast of ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' has exhibited this despite not having any apparent magical protection.
** One member managed to survive having '''Australia''' dropped on them. That one member? The '''''[[SquishyWizard SQUISHY FREAKING WIZARD]]'''''.
** Fighter himself has survived several stabs to the back of the head courtesy of black mage and it isn't likely he's ever felt a thing. Hell, he even had one used as a lightning rod to channel a Lightning Spell directly into his brain. That particular spell actually INCREASED his intelligence instead of dealing any damage whatsoever!
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius ''
** Considering what he HAS survived, Othar Trygvassen (GENTLEMAN ADVENTURER!) is only boasting a little in the page quote.
** Also a defining characteristic of the [[SuperSoldier Jaegers]], along with their [[FunetikAksent thick Germanic accents]] and [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily teeth]]
** And coming completely out of left field is quiet, unassuming, MauveShirt Airman Third Class Axel Higgs. He gets slammed into a stone wall hard enough to leave a man-shaped dent, brushes it off, [[spoiler:then cuts the insane clank that did the slamming with a wrench [[OneHitKill in a single swipe.]]]] Although we're starting to get hints that he's not quite what he seems...
* Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}: Recently, [[spoiler: Gamzee]] received several ''hundred'' bullets in the chest courtesy of [[spoiler: Caliborn]], and doesn't even stop smiling. Apparently, [[spoiler: clowns]] in Homestuck are death-proof.
* [[TheAce Jones]] from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''. Trick one: [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=380 a sword bounces from her face]]. Trick two: [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=721 place a palm on a wall.]] Close the fist, excavating what concrete happened to fit under the fingers. Who she is wasn't revealed yet, only that she's ''not'' a robot and [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=515 probably]] not a "normal" magic-user either. We already saw one god and one valkyrie at the Court, though... And remember, androids aren't robots, and golems don't count as robots either.
** Jones probably belongs on {{Complete Immortality}}. [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=1113 Latest page]] shows her standing in the magma of the FORMING Earth.
* Webcomic/VGCats parodied this with (amusingly enough, considering the Trope Picture) Zoro from ''Manga/OnePiece''. Zoro blows off some physical damage taken by earlier attacks... only for Chopper to tell him that he's taken such internal damage from the attacks that [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=226 most of his colon has to be removed]].
* The title character of ''Webcomic/PrincessPi''. Watch as she survives [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/princesspi/index.php?issue=1&page=5 an explosion]], then ''two'' [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/princesspi/index.php?issue=1&page=6 throws to the ground]], then [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/princesspi/index.php?issue=1&page=7 a gasoline fire]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Memoria}}'': [[http://memoria.valice.net/?p=303 The children realize their injuries should have been worse.]]
* [[spoiler:Richard]] in ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' may qualify as a double subversion, [[spoiler:given the huge number of AmusingInjuries he's survived with little ill effect. At first it seemed justified by the fact that he's undead, but recently some strips have dropped hints that he may be a flesh-and-blood human masquerading as an undead.]]
** Triple subversion! [[spoiler:His immortality is derived from some sort of magic which requires him to kill innocents and harvest their ashes.]]
* Among other things, Vane Black of ''NextTownOver'' has been shot through the hand and hanged, and the strongest reaction she has is frustration that John Henry Hunter is getting away because of such holdups.
* Borgo the Ogre is revealed to be Made of Iron [[http://cockeyed.webcomic.ws/comics/51/ here]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Jacob Starr of ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest'' is (in)famous for this trope, to the point of handlers referring to its use as "The Jacob Treatment". The character in question, over the course of his tenure on the island, was [[AnnoyingArrows hit by arrows]], burned, [[OnlyAFleshWound shot]], cut and stabbed, all without seeming to flinch or even lose any mobility.
** V3's Rick Holeman also took an absurd amount of injuries before dying. These included getting shot in the chest while still being able to run right over to his attacker, knock her over and starting to beat her down. All the while being stabbed with a knife - then he survived long enough to deliver some last words before finally kicking the bucket.
* Justified in ''BrokenSaints'': Gabriel, [[spoiler:TheDragon]], can handle the pain of his spear wound so easily because [[spoiler:he been genetically engineered to have enhanced physical endurance, among other attributes.]]
** Played straight with Oran. Sure, [[HandWave the power of his faith protects him]], or at least numbs him to pain, but he still takes way [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat too much punishment to survive]], time after time.
* [[AvertedTrope Usually averted]] in the ''WhateleyUniverse'', even if it is a comic book universe. Even the NighInvulnerable characters get injured. Lancer is a FlyingBrick, and in his combat final, he got a dislocated shoulder that sent him to the hospital. [[spoiler:He still won, though.]] Phase seems to be in dire need of her roommate's healing salves on a regular basis.
* Randall [[spoiler: Octagonapus]] of ''TheLazerCollection 3'' survives ''falling from the roof of a tall building'' and with no reaction other than "Ugh... I'm fine... ''but this is personal.''"
* The most obvious example from the ''GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'' would be The Shield, whose only superpower was a complete and total immunity to being injured. It didn't matter what you used on him... his power would let him survive it uninjured. Bullets? He laughed at bullets. Drowning? Sorry, can't drown, though he doesn't quite breathe water in those circumstances. Having a skyscraper collapse on top of him? Granted, he'd get bored waiting for you to dig him out, but in the meantime he'd be fine. Exposure to vacuum? Doesn't faze him. Drop him to the ground from orbit? Been there, done that.
** The superheroic Stuntman from the same setting is an interesting variation. His powers revolve around luck rather than simply being [[NighInvulnerable immune to injury]], so as a result he gets banged up all the time... but never as badly as he should be. Stuntman once was thrown from the roof of a twelve story building, and through a series of lucky breaks and coincidental events managed to walk away from it with a skinned knee and a twisted ankle.
** Infinity is amazingly hard to hurt as well because of her mutation. Her bones are made of metal and her musculature is far more dense than normal flesh. She gets hurt all the time, but it takes a lot to do it.
** Anvil is literally Made of Iron. Imagine Colossus of the X-Men, except permanently transformed and iron instead of steel.
* Roleplay/DarwinsSoldiers has a surprising amount of Made of Iron characters.
** Pelvanida experiments are ''extremely'' hard to kill.
** [[BadassNormal Alfred]] shrugged off at least two point blank gut shots from a pistol and continued engaging [[ScaryBlackMan Marcus]] in a fist fight.
** Marcus is an ordinary human Dragonstorm agent. He was capable of taking on two beings with SuperStrength, even after he had been punched several times by them.
* Corbin from ''WebVideo/SplinterCellExtinction'' gets surrounded by a SWAT team, sedated, takes a MagicAntidote, his MissionControl provides him a distraction via HollywoodHacking that leads to a DarkenedBuildingShootout, Corbin gets shot in the chest while totally murdering everyone in the room, then beats the crap out of four more armed commandos and escapes.
* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick can get her head exploded and only need happy pills to cure the minor headache she got.
* LetsPlay/MarikPlaysBloodlines. While [[LargeHam Marik]] was in the wrong crowd's house, one interrupts his BadassBoast. All the other wrong crowd members got down within 2-3 hits, this particular one got hit ''16'' times total by a [[BuffySpeak Bat-wielding-Vampire]]!
* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', Skitter. Her sheer toughness is demonstrated on several occasions, but the most vivid demonstration comes in [[http://parahumans.wordpress.com/2013/02/23/scourge-19-2/ 19.2]] when she walks up to a hero who uses his power to sort-of cure her, a power which as a side effect transfers her injuries to him. She was prepared to fight without healing, but Tattletale convinces her to go through with it anyway. Afterwards, the hero needs the help of two people just to stand.
* Grif from ''Machimina/RedVSBlue. He is repeatedly shot and killed by Sarge and others, to the point of almost being a RunningGag, but always appears alive and fine later on. He's even survived a shot from a tank with no ill effects.
* [[SCPFoundation SCP-]][[http://www.scp-wiki.net/experiment-log-t-98816-oc108-682 682]] could be the ultimate example. Experiments have exposed him to all kinds of weapons and chemical agents. Then they started siccing other SCP on it: NighInvulnerable and ''literally'' invulnerable predators, lethal quantities of infectious poisons, acids, and [[RealityWarper objects that alter the very laws of the universe]]. And it keeps.Coming.Back.
