** This could be attributed to the WorfHadTheFlu trope, none of the pilots on the antagonist's side really had their head's in the game for the final fight [[spoiler: Shinn was on the verge of a nervous breakdown, Luna was having severe misgivings about the whole situation, Captain Gladus was outright disgusted with the whole thing and was only fighting out of her lingering sense of duty and loyalty, and Rey lost it after a ClonesArePeopleToo speech from Kira.]] And to add to that, at ''least half'' of the [[BigBad Big Bad's]] forces switched sides mid-fight.

Over ''half'' switched sides mid-fight.on the onset of the fight; more followed after he nuked a portion of his own fleet just to get at the protagonists; and both his [[TheDragon Dragon]] and [[TheBrute Top Ace]] suffered nervous breakdowns midway through the battle.

** Subverted with Carine in Part 5. Mista quickly guns him down as he charges at them, before he gets a chance to show his stand. [[spoiler: Turns out his death was the key to unleash the {{Nigh Invulnerab|ility}}le Notorious B.I.G]]

** In the Hueco Mundo arc, Ishida and Renji struggle against Szayel, and then Mayuri shows up as part of a BigDamnHeroes brigade and trashes Szayel with [[CrazyPrepared Batman-level planning]].
*** The battle between [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant Mayuri and Szayel]] was ultimately decided by who was more nightmarishly prepared. The two practically took turns releasing horrors from their bag of tricks until Szayel ran out.

* ''Anime/YuGiOh'': Seto Kaiba usually wins his duels like this unless his opponent is either Yugi, [[TheLancer Joey]] (who can't beat him, but ''can'' put up a good fight), the current season's BigBad, or one of his [[TheDragon Dragons]]. This was especially true during the Battle City arc when Kaiba had the Egyptian God Card, Obelisk the Tormentor, whose special ability is pratically designed to curb-stomp the opponent.
** Also when Kaiba and Yami Yugi team up in Battle City and thrash any ghoul (rare hunter in the dub) who stand in their way. It's effectively a duelist's worst nightmare when this pair put aside their differences and form a tag team; occasionally, a Duelist beat Yugi, and occasionally, a Duelist beat Kaiba, but nobody ''ever'' beat both of them at once.
** The effect is lessened in DM, when Yami usually employs a come from behind victory, but even these are usually supported by long term strategy. The effect is in full force in the Toei anime, when gamers who take him on usually take the rope and hang themselves (figuratively speaking) in short order. This also happens in the manga the first time the Pharaoh summons the gods against Bakura in the Millennium World arc.
** In ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'', Yuma was able to defeat Shark the first time, when Shark was brainwashed by Number 17. However, since then, almost every time that Yuma duels Shark, when Shark is in control of his actions, it tends to be one-sided, and in Shark's favor.
** Yuma's first duel with Kaito was pretty one-sided too. The only reason Yuma survived was because Kaito had to abort the duel due an emergency involving his brother. [[spoiler: Yuma lost his second duel with Kaito (where there were no real stakes on it) but it was a far more even fight.]]

** In ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'', Atem's victory over Rare Hunter (Seeker in the dub) was the only duel where he doesn't lose any Life Points, the reason being that Rare Hunter uses an Exodia deck, and Atem counters his strategy twice without problems.

* ''{{Manga/Wangan Midnight}]'' has one of these, albeit in the form of a race. Akio (when still driving the Z31) meets the Blackbird (Porsche 964) driven by Tatsuya Shima during a cruise in the Wangan Highway. He attempts to race it, but a stock Z31 is no good against a souped-up Porsche, and quickly gets his tailpipe handed to him. This is what (indirectly) lead to Akio acquiring the Devil Z.
