* In ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'', [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Math]] is confronted by a Wolverine knock-off villain with impenetrable skin and unstoppable claws. Just when Math's looking forward to an [[WorthyOpponent interesting fight]], Sidney uses her [[CombatTentacles whipcoil orb]] to [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1331 stick the foe's own claws into his chest]].
--> '''Sidney:''' ''[to a [[DeathGlare glowering]] Math]'' What? Clearly, one of those statements was false.

** Maxima is the most powerful super in the world by a large margin, to the point that she is capable of literally nuking things and surviving worse. She is also a soldier, and was taught to be a ruthlessly efficient fighter. When fighting Vehemence, she had Peggy [[EyeScream shoot him in the eye]] with an [[{{BFG}} anti-materiel rifle]], used the distraction to knock him to the ground, stomped on his crotch (though he dodged that one) hard enough to leave a ten-foot crater, punched him a hundred feet into a construction site, used a concrete pillar to grind his face in, and then vaporized his arm.
--->'''Vehemence:''' Jesus ''Christ'' lady!



*** He does it again in the same arc during the climactic fight with Gackt, after the latter transforms into his ultimate [[spoiler:well, penultimate]] form. Rather than engage in another lengthy RPG-style duel, he declares that he's gonna "[[SailorMoon Moon Tiara Magic]] this bullshit," and simply climbs up and cuts Gackt's throat.

** Schlock himself is pretty pragmatic.pragmatic, to the point arming him with a powerful gun is ''merciful''. He'll just devour his enemies alive otherwise.

** In the same fight, no less, rather than letting skill or stats win out, Zz'dtri had specifically tailored all his spells and abilities to counter V's.
** The Black Dragon waited to attack Vaarsuuvius until after s/he had left her allies and had exhausted her higher level spells.

* TFA Prowl in the ''{{Insecticomics}}'' teaches his class to use any available item as a weapon. When Laserbeak tries to call him on this, [[http://www.insecticons.com/insecticomics/v5/437.html he kicks her aft with a sandwich.]]

* In ''ErrantStory'', Jon Amraphel is the only main character without any magical ability. How does he cope with fighting MagicKnight elven military, [[WarriorMonk monks]] with BulletTime SuperSpeed, and tiny fairy demigods? By a) being [[TheGunslinger very good with guns]], and b) cheating like hell. Being a semi-retired assassin, he does his best to avoid anything like a face-to-face fight.

** Redcloak has always been pragmatic, with examples such as using Titanium Elementals instead of Earth because they are lighter yet stronger (if distasteful, not being a "classic" element); walking his hobgoblin army into certain death because he only needs them as a distraction (prior to gaining a change of heart regarding racism); creating decoys of Xykon to make the heroes guess which one's real, but then having the real one take an entirely different method of approach; etc.

** Still later, however, he plays it strange when he is proposed to a fair fight [[spoiler: by Thanh]], who is held by an elemental summoned by Redcloak.
