* Every so often (especially in the guidebooks), a structural integrity field is used to explain why IronMan can withstand a punch from the [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/PrincessTheHopeful:'' Despite what the name might imply, the Barrier Jacket Charm actually functions as an example of this trope, infusing the Princess's Transformed body and Regalia to make it hard as iron. This means that the armor rating the Charm grants applies whether the Princess appears to be wearing armor or whether [[ChainmailBikini she appears to be wearing a leotard, tutu, and tiara]], and that the protection the Charm offers has no chinks or weak points that can be exploited.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', the ancient Thassilonians used magic to preserve their monuments, which is why they're still standing 10,000 years later.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Digger}}'': Dwarves have a [[https://diggercomic.com/blog/2007/02/14/digger-7/ bad reputation]] in-universe by shoring up their {{Underground Cit|y}}ies with unreliable spells rather than [[MugglesDoItBetter build them to be structurally sound in the first place]].

** "Glassteel" enchants glass to be as strong as steel, but remain as non-conductive, corrosion-resistant, and light as glass. Thus, it became the the armor material of choice for flying warriors, whether Aarakocra, [[WingedHumanoid Avariel]] or Nimbral (''ForgottenRealms'') pegasi cavalry.

Added DiffLines:

* "Edenite", in the ''Undersea'' series by Frederick Pohl and Jack Williamson, allows city domes and submarine hulls to withstand the crushing pressures encountered deep under sea.


** The Valency Generator is cleverly used in an airbag-like safety mechanism: in a collision, the vehicle is flooded with a gel or foam-like substance, and then the valency generator kicks in, making the substance rigid, absorbing the momentum of the passenger. Yeah, you need to be cut out of it, but still, you're safe.

* ''Lightnovel/FullMetalPanic'' once had a 40 meter tall ''HumongousMecha'', in which the fact that a mecha of it's size normally shouldn't be able to support its own weight was a major plot point. The only reason it even manages to stand up is due to it being supported by a Reinforce Field. Sure enough, when it was damaged, the entire thing collapses on itself.
* Shiki's glasses in ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' are indestructible, period. The reason for this is that they block out his MagicalEye effects that allow him to destroy ''anything'', period. Makes sense to have an indestructible PowerLimiter on an omni-destructive ability, doesn't it?
* A variant of this is in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. Reinforcement is one of the most basic forms of magic, and can be described as concentrating an objects traits. For instance, reinforcing a wooden sword makes it temporarily harder, sharper, and more resilient, reinforcing a body makes it MadeOfIron and minor SuperStrength, reinforcing eyes gives you eagle vision etc.

* In ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' even the largest [[AMechByAnyOtherName Arm Slaves]] are only around 10 meters tall, so when the 40 meter tall "Behemoth" shows up, the fact that a HumongousMecha of its size normally shouldn't be able to support its own weight is a major plot point. Sure enough, the protagonists discover that the Behemoth is equipped with a [[BlackBox Lambda Driver]], which would normally provide it with {{Telekinesis}} but is instead being used just to hold everything together. When its Lambda Driver takes damage, the entire thing collapses on itself.



* In ''LightNovel/KnightsAndMagic'' the bodies of demon beasts are magically reinforced. For larger beasts like [[{{Kaiju}} Behemoths]] this means that running out of {{Mana}} can be fatal, since without a Reinforce Field their bodies are unable to support their own weight.

So you have a DeflectorShields that stop incoming objects or propagating fields. Cool. You know what we really need to stop from moving too much? Parts of armor plates and loaded girders. Or, if you prefer, molecular bonds and atomic nuclei. So if the shields can work ''inside'' matter, they could (and should) be used to make materials stronger and more resilient than could otherwise be possible.
