* Double Subverted in ''VideoGame/SonicColors'', Sonic (who can run at least faster than the speed of sound), is able to ''outrun a'' '''''black hole''''' (remember, this is something that's gravity prevents anything -which, if close enough, even includes ''light''- from escaping from it). He resisted it for a good 30 seconds, and was [[BigDamnHeroes almost]] sucked back in. Even Tails is amazed that he made it back to their world in one piece.

* In ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'', [[SelfImposedChallenge you can use]] [[LevelEditor Custom Night]] to set all 4 of the animatronics' AI to 20 ([[HarderThanHard the absolute highest it can go]]), but developer Scott Cawthon didn't program in a reward because he thought it was [[PlatformHell impossible to beat]]. A lets-player called [=BigBug=] [[LordBritishPostulate proved him wrong]], after ''[[TheDeterminator 23 hours]]'' of trying. ''LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}}'' soon followed, after 7 hours straight trying to beat it. There's currently a section of the [[Awesome/FiveNightsAtFreddys Crowning Moment of Awesome]] page for people who've been able to beat [[FanNickname 4/20 Mode]].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'', Some class abilities allow more ammo to be used than some guns can hold. In some cases this allows for five shotgun rounds to be used when only''two'' are loaded as well as sub-machinegun and assault rifles being able to hold as much as THOUSANDS of rounds. With the right character skills, even revolvers with a clearly-visible number of chambers can hold more rounds than should be possible.

Added DiffLines:

** Gaige's Close Enough ability causes fired bullets to ricochet off of surfaces toward a nearby enemy with slightly reduced damage. They ''always'' hit something, regardless of trajectory. Having both Close Enough and any number of Anarchy stacks will result it a hailstorm of bullets flying in every conceivable direction before [[{{Roboteching}} turning around and]] [[MacrossMissileMassacre turning every enemy into chowder]]. This is particularly effective with the powerful but inaccurate Torgue weapons.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, all {{Skill Score}}s are {{cap}}ped at 100 for all characters, including the [=PCs=], representing the peak of mortal ability (you can raise them further temporarily with magic, but never permanently). And then there is Oghma Infinitum, a TomeOfEldritchLore that contains knowledge so otherworldly, it will actually raise your skills permanently ''above'' 100 (if they're already maxed out). It helps that the book's Daedric master, Hermaeus Mora, is an EldritchAbomination that transcends reality, anyway.

* ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'': Yessha's mother Catherine was good at this. In the novels she's mentioned as having written "Torus", an stable doughnut-shaped Age, which features a huge waterfall that falls through the planet's core, turns into rain and gets carried back by clouds to refill the Ocean, that in turn, feeds the Waterfall. Atrus' reaction to first seeing this was that until then, he had thought it ''impossible'' to do such things with the Art.

** On a more serious note, [[BloodKnight Undyne]], perhaps taking cues from [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Viral]], manages to produce her own [[{{Determinator}} Determination]], which monsters are stated to be unable to do. She adamantly refuses to die when the player kills her - until she melts. [[spoiler:In the No Mercy route, the player character has to [[HeroicSecondWind kill her twice]] - she determines herself into a [[BonusBoss more powerful form]] [[TheApocalypseBringsOutTheBestInPeople just to stop you]].]]

* In ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'', at one point Asura becomes so mad, he gains the level of power it took his fellow Deities nearly '''12000 YEARS''' to accumulate. Yasha even states that this is impossible by the standards they were using.
** Similarly, killing [[spoiler: [[{{God}} Chakravartin]] was said by Chakravartin himself to be an impossibility.]]

** PlayedForLaughs if you're fighting Undyne on a non-KillEmAll run; she'll suplex a boulder just because she can, then she suplexes ten boulders for the same reason, then finally suplexes ''herself'' "just to prove nothing is impossible".

* Azrael from ''Franchise/BlazBlue'' was such a dangerous [[TheJuggernaut juggernaut]] that he had to be sealed in a pocket dimension that was kept at absolute zero. After being released from it in [[VideoGame/BlazBlueChronophantasma the third game]] he basically reacts as if he's had a power nap, and is dominating the rest of the cast within hours. It goes even further in the fourth game, where he creates a sealed arena for his fight with Kagura by shifting space through sheer strength, and punching his way through a dimensional barrier without breaking a sweat just so he can pick a fight with Izanami.
