"His breath can shatter boulders, with one swing he sinks mountains into the earth, the strongest man among men under the heavens. KAN MEI!!!!"
― Kan Mei Army (Kingdom)
"I shall teach you the true meaning of MIGHT."
― Mou Bu to Ri Haku of Defense (Kingdom)

The power to be stronger than average humans even though their capabilities are not classified as 'enhanced'. Sub-power of Peak Human Condition. Real-world version of Enhanced Strength.

  • Enormous Physical Strength

Capabilities

Users' strength is at the maximum limit of human conditioning. Their over-head lifting capabilities range from 800 lbs to 1,100 lbs (about 360 to 500 kg), and their bench-press capabilities range from 1,100 lbs to 1,500 lbs (about 500 to 680 kg). They could surpass the feats of any Olympic weightlifter, allowing them to lift objects on their own that would normally require multiple people, break thin chains or steel cuffs, bend metal bars, and smash down doors and walls with a single blow.

On the offensive, the user is able to knock people out with a single blow, tear limbs off and crush skulls. They can also punch through thin brick walls, lift a full-grown person in the air with one arm, and even throw them several meters. Among some users, their strength is strong enough to wrestle or even overpower wild animals, such as bears and gorillas.

Applications

Techniques

Levels

  • Peak Human Strength: Possess enough strength to lift several times one's own body weight to 800lbs-1,000lbs/360-500 kg.
  • Enhanced Strength: User's strength is augmented to beyond peak human levels, but not too high supernatural levels. Users of this are able to perform strength feats such as moving or lifting heavy objects such as cars, trucks, and buses.
  • Supernatural Strength: Supernatural strength comes in five levels.
    • Type I: Being able to lift up large tanks to large airplanes, and able to lift massive boulders.
    • Type II: Being able to lift heavier structures from battleships to massive aircrafts.
    • Type III: Being able to lift skyscraper size structures and being capable of moving mountainous figures at top strength.
    • Type IV: Being able to lift continents, planets or any planetary size structures.
    • Type V: Being able to perform galactic levels feats of strength. Users also possess strength powerful enough to affect the fabrics of time and space on a small scale and even shake a finite universe with their striking force.
  • Absolute Strength: Limitless strength that allows the user to perform unbelievable and impossible feats such as lifting virtually anything (like objects with infinite mass for example) with ease, distorting the fabric of reality with one's bare hands alone, shattering the boundaries of time and space on a large scale with their raw physical force or going toe to toe and being able to harm cosmic entities, abstract and transcendental forces, and even supreme beings.

Limitations

Notes

  • The human limit of strength is considered to be 1,800-2,000 lbs (about 816.466-907.185 kg) over-head, and 3,500-4,000 lbs (about 1587.573-1814.369 kg) bench press.
  • If a user with peak human strength was to have an adrenaline rush, it could push them into Enhanced Strength, but not to Supernatural Strength.
  • It is, in fact, possible for females to go through intense body and muscle building and gain the strength of that particular level, at least depending on their endurance.
