Talk about Batang fish only then @FatNeko appear..  ;D

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badang
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singapore_Stone

One day in his new home Badang saw fifty men trying to push a heavy boat into the water. Badang continually offered to help but the men refused, saying that no one so small would make any difference. The king Paduka Seri Rana Wikrama eventually sent for 300 men to help push the vessel but it was to no avail. When he saw Badang being refused, the king gave Badang the chance to push the boat by himself. Everyone present was shocked to find that the small-framed Badang could move the ship after 300 people had just failed to do so. He was summoned to the court of Seri Rana Wikrama and was appointed commander-in-chief of the army.

Badang was frequently asked to do favours. The king once asked him to gather the tasty kuras leaves from Kuala Sayong in Sumatra, so Badang set off in a boat by himself. When he climbed the kuras tree, its branch broke and Badang fell a long way, his head hitting a rock. To his surprise, Badang was completely unharmed and the rock was split in two. Today that rock is called the Split Stone (Batu Belah).


Now you know why they call it Legend of Badang..  :-X

I also never heard of it before but it doesn't seem to be recently invented.  The wiki entry quoted sources from 1991 and the Singapore Stone belonged to the 19th century.
