What happened to all the Zelda examples? I just noticed that they weren't showing on the video game page, so I fixed them to show. then they all got deleted. Why?

They were made not show up again. They aren't showing because they are Zero Context Examples, until they are improved they can't be made show up.

What the heck happened to the formatting? All of the folders are just their format text, and I can't seem to find anything wrong with how the folder parts are typed.

Folders can only hold a certain amount of text. When that limit is breached on one of the page folders, all of them go kaput and look like this. To fix it, please break them up into more, smaller folders.

Or split the page, as I just did.

Why aren't the folders working properly?

I really think this page has got to be cleaned up. This should just be cut down to comparative examples, because, when you think about it, 90-95% of fighting heroes would count one way or another. What this means is that every example on this page should be when a character is explicity shown to be faster, stronger, and more durable than other characters.

In the Real Life section of Hard-hitting Speedsters, do the Samurai really deserve a mention? Traditional Kenjutsu wasn't really as fast as it was precise, and their physical training wasn't really any more rigorous than any other warrior class. While a samurai of legendary skill might belong in this page, does the samurai class as a whole?

And furthermore, the notion of japanese armour being comprised of leather and steel due to it giving the best of both worlds in protection and agility is rather mistaken. Japanese iron was notoriously poor and also fairly rare. Samurai armour would often have a few plates or pieces of steel, and then be supplemented with lacquered wood and leather. Only lords and generals could afford anything providing much better protection. The current entry smacks of Japanophilia.

Added an alternate title, Gran Turismo Tank, just because it seems a more fitting title for this kind of creatures and machines, despite we have Genius Bruiser for now. Not suggesting the alternate one will replace one by default, though, just added it since it feels more like it.

Erm, why is there no television section in the article?

Because nobody's added any television examples yet?

-Z-: I think the nanoha/signum comparison isn't really a fair example; for one, speed wasn't really nanoha's specialty, and furthermore... signum got an upgrade at the end of StrikerS by way of the unison device Agito, and nanoha *permanently* reduced her own magic ability during the final battles.

But Signum never used said upgrade in her matches against Nanoha, also she's able to keep up with Fate hit by hit which demonstrates that signum is, in fact, pretty fast, just not as fast as Fate(like comparing Superman with the Flash, both have super speed but Flash is waaaay faster than the Big Blue). About her resilence, Signum usually have pretty good defenses(enough to being blasted in the face by a Blaster-1 powered Nanoha and survive on feet, even if a bit wasted), of course her defenses suck balls against Eclipse's ultimate Anti-Magic powers, but against any conventional foe she's a hard wall to pass.

Could an Action Girl be a Lightning Bruiser? I'm not talking about Wonder Woman, I mean in Real Life. In Professional Wrestling, there are Fragile Speedsters (Gail Kim, AJ Lee, the latter who could fall into Glass Cannon territory at times), Pint-Sized Powerhouses (Kaitlyn, Jacqueline, Jazz, Aksana), Acrofatic Foreign Wrestling Heels (Aja Kong, Bull Nakano), Jills Of All Stats (Molly Holly) and true Amazonian powerhouses (Chyna, Beth Phoenix). Then there were those such as Ivory and Luna Vachon who were primarily technical wrestlers and did not emphasize either speed, strength or endurance. I'm just wondering what a female pro wrestler would have to do/be in order to qualify for Lightning Bruiser.

Thank you very much in advance.

Is she faster, more damaging, and more resilient than most?

If so, then she's a Lightning Bruiser.
