Detritus and Mister Vimes.

When Mister Safety Catch Is Not On, Mister Crossbow Is Not Your Friend
— Detritus the Troll


Detritus the Troll is one of the greatest success stories of Discworld canon- he began as a simple mountain troll- only semi-sentient all the time- working as a splatter (like a bouncer but with more force). Eventually he would be taken to Holy Wood as hired muscle and would fall in love, eventually taking a job under the wing of Samuel Vimes, Captain of the Ankh Morpork Police. Detritus would skyrocket to becoming a senior sergeant who helped mend the racial barriers between dwarves and trolls, shaking hands with the Low King and even solving the Fifth Elephant crisis.

Attack Potency: At least Wall level physically (He literally is a wall, has broken through walls pretty easily). At least Small Building level to Building level with his Piecemaker (Has been stated to be able to shoot through the front and backdoors of the Vimes Mansion, i.e., the largest house in a city of a million people, tearing through anything in between)

Intelligence: Sentient without the helmet, Average with the helmet, Gifted in cold temperatures, Genius or higher in near-lethal temperatures (his brain is formed from impure silicon, and works something like a computer, so overheating forces his intelligence downward; it is also worth noting that he counts in binary, and can count to any number via using ones and twos)
