* Thor, when he faced a frost giant in a duel, found that the giant had cheated by bringing a massive clay golem to the fight to aid him. Thor gave the golem a DeathGlare so epic that the golem immediately pissed itself and dissolved into a puddle. [[BadassOfTheWeek That's right, folks-Thor was so crap-your-pants scary that he could make inanimate constructs spontaneously spawn an excretory system solely for the purposes of wetting themselves.]]

* In HinduMythology: When [[WingedHumanoid Garuda]] steals Amarita from heaven, various gods try to stop him and get their asses kicked. Notably, when Indra strikes Garuda with the Vajra, [[StoneWall it doesn't even scratch him]]. However, Garuda drops a single feather to show his respect to Vajra (it was Shiva's gift to Indra). It takes Vishnu to fight Garuda to a ''draw''. And he did all of that ''before'' gaining godhood.
