* Quite a few examples in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''. There's the [[EliteMooks Daughters of Aku]], [[OneManArmy the Scotsman's Wife]], [[DarkActionGirl Josephine]], the Shaolin Monks, the African Chief, Jack himself... The big standout though has to be Jack's father, a Japanese king and warlord who managed to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu subdue Aku]] ''without'' the proper magical weapons needed to properly kill him.

* ''WesternAnimation/AtomicPuppet'' has Pauline, who may not have superpowers like her friend [[KidHero Joey]] (except for that time she became Sword Sister), but she is still clever and capable enough to be a helping hand against the show's various villains. Hell, she's even saved Joey on a few occasions.

** [[SuicideSquad "Taskforce X"]] uses this trope to help make the {{Villain Protagonist}}s of the episode more sympathetic. Even if they are evil, watching four normal people (with a fifth as mission control) infiltrate the Watchtower and make off with a giant magical suit of armour is still sort of cool.

Added DiffLines:

** And of course, David Xanatos is the trope namer for plans that are immune to failure. He never loses his cool no matter how powerful an opponent he is faced with. He says he isn't afraid of anything because he believes nothing is beyond his power to change. So far, he hasn't been proven wrong.

** Zaheer, the BigBad of Season 3 is the leader of a group of benders dedicated to killing the Avatar and is treated as equally dangerous as his crew despite the fact that prior to Harmonic Convergence he was a non-bender. However, after the events of Season 2, he gains the ability to Airbend.

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' is able to hold her own against Shego, a recurring [[HandBlast superpowered]] ArchEnemy. She's also been known to defeat an entire superteam (in "Stop Team Go") and even go toe to toe with an EldritchAbomination for a few seconds before he kicked his [[TakenforGranite magic]] in on her.

Her practically superhuman level of agility and fighting skill is usually attributed by her being a really good cheerleader.

* The SwatKats are two ex-police officers who, despite being ReassignedToAntarctica, manage to construct their own CoolPlane, the [=TurboKat=], from ''junkyard scrap'', alongside a bunch of other vehicles and gear, and manage to save the day. Deputy Mayor Callie Briggs, Enforcer Commander Ulysses Feral, and his niece, Lt. Felina Feral, are also quite capable of standing up to the villainry (though Commander Feral is against the SWAT Kats because of their vigilante activities).

* Quite a few examples in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'':
** Jack's father was a Japanese king and warlord who managed to subdue Aku ''without'' the proper magical weapons needed to properly kill him.
** To this day, one of the deadliest foes Jack has ever faced was the outlaw [[SouthernBelle Josephine]], a completely ordinary woman who actually very nearly succeeded in capturing him. She even held her own against him in close combat (when he was deprived of his sword and both [[EmergencyWeapon fighting with shovels]]).
** The Scotsman's Wife. [[BerserkButton Calling her "fat"]] turned her into a robot-wrecking, demon-punching LightningBruiser [[OneManArmy One Woman Army]]. Even ''Jack'' was ''terrified'' of her.
** In the same vein, the Daughters of Aku from the new series. A pack of seven teenage {{Ninja}} {{Tyke Bomb}}s trained from childhood to kill Jack. They ambush him, beat the tar out of him and he very nearly escapes with his life. [[spoiler:And then he kills all but one of them.]]
