* The Temple of the Monkey God in the BloonsTowerDefense series can dish these out in a heart beat, especially when maxed sacrafices are given to it. In fact, its well known for its power & awesomeness.

** Also from the backstory, the [[CatFolk Khajiit]] and Bosmer (Wood Elves) got into a border dispute which quickly escalated into the Five Years War. While the Bosmer won an initial battle (when the Khajiit got poor counsel from their [[HornyVikings Nord]] advisors, who utilize a very different style of warfare), the Khajiit absolutely manhandled the the Bosmer after that, claiming some of their territory and even raiding deep into Valenwood. It took the Bosmer [[GodzillaThreshold invoking the Wild Hunt]] to finally stop the Khajiit attacks.

* The three final battles in {{OFF}} may turn out like this. If you collected all Grand items, you are leveled up enough to take down [[spoiler:the Queen]] without much effort (poison everyone, spam your most powerful moves). [[spoiler:Hugo]] is even easier, since [[spoiler:[[TearJerker he doesn't even fight back]]]]. If you [[spoiler:chose the Special Ending, just Palsy the enemy and hit with your most powerful move]]. This is exaggerated to the point where [[spoiler:[[FinalBoss the Bad Batter]]]] [[EpicFail may not even get the chance to damage you]].

* A GoodBadBug in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' allows an infinite loop to power up the capabilities of alchemy and enchanting, allowing equipment to be pumped up to ridiculous levels. While wearing these super-clothes, a single punch can deal out over one billion HP of damage.
** Sometimes you'll have a dragon attack the [[WizardingSchool College of Winterhold]]. The end result is nearly always this, with the dragon on the ''receiving'' end.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** In the series' backstory, [[GodEmperor Tiber Septim]] delivered one to the [[OurElvesAreBetter Altmer (High Elves)]]. After receiving the [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]]-crafted [[HumongousMecha Numdium]] in tribute from the Dunmer as part of Morrowind becoming a VoluntaryVassal to Septim's Empire, Septim used it to great effect when capturing the Altmeri capital of Alinor. The Altmer army was crushed and their capital city was sacked in ''less than an hour'' of fighting, bringing the Altmer under the rule of men by conquest for the first time in history. (This only exacerbated their hatred of humanity and, when the opportunity arose following the Oblivion Crisis, they struck back hard under the leadership of [[ANaziByAnyOtherNAme the Thalmor]].)

** Whitney can also become a curb stomp battle if you don't get rid of her Miltank fast enough before it starts using Rollout, especially if your starter Pokemon is a Fire-type.

* The final boss battle in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' can be this, if you have the Fierce Diety mask. In fact, every boss battle in the game is this when the player uses the Fierce Diety mask. That is the reason why the Fierce Diety mask can only be used during boss battles. (Except via an unsurprisingly frequently exploited GoodBadBug.)

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', there is widespread evidence that Calamity Ganon inflicted this upon the kingdom a century ago. ''Every'' fort, garrison, and training camp Link stumbles across are in ruin or re-purposed by monsters into homes. Several battlefields containing shattered Guardian hulks are littered with rusting swords and shields concentrated in small clusters, giving the sense of a BolivianArmyEnding. If one reviews the world map and plots the location of the military camps, it becomes apparent Hyrule expected Ganon to attack from outside the kingdom and make his way to the palace. They never expected him to emerge from Hyrule Castle itself.

* Happened in-universe in EVEOnline. The Amarr Empire was extremely powerful and held a huge amount of territory, and became so arrogant that they attacked the reclusive, trans-human [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul Jove]]. They got utterly and completely crushed.

* Glass Joe, from PunchOut, can be knocked out in one properly-timed hit to the gut, or [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential several to the jaw]], all while he fails to retaliate properly. It is quite amusing.

*** The same can happen in [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Alpha Sapphire]] for an entirely different reason -- the Thunder TM. Thunder is an exceptionally powerful Electric-type move, but it has low accuracy -- except in the rain, which the Kyogre with Blue Orb always generates. Also, Kyogre is able to learn Thunder, and it can be bought for cash (which you have plenty of).
