* ''VideoGame/CreepyCastle'':
** The battle against [[spoiler: the possessed Darking]] doesn't go too well for Moth.
** [[spoiler: The Zylindarr's alien colonization of Dopterra that was attempted thousands of years ago pretty much ended when they fought the planet's protector.]] One of them describes it as [[PhysicalGod a creature that doesn't die.]]

** The first part of the last level in MW3. Dozens of guards in suits with pistols against two men [[spoiler: In juggernaut suits with belt-fed machine guns.]]
*** When you reach the end of the level, [[spoiler: you finally get to kill Makarov. The problem is, Price is an unquestionable Badass while there's nothing suggesting Makarov is a skilled hand-to-hand fighter. Once Price manages to actually get his hands on him, he goes down much more pathetically than, say, [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Shepherd]] did in MW2. Makarov's death is more of a brutal execution than a straight-up fight.]]

** Two examples from ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': The Normandy, despite representing the cutting edge of Alliance tech and having gotten the killing blow on Sovereign, gets utterly eaten by the Collector cruiser. Upgrading the Normandy [=SR2=]'s weaponry lets Joker [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome take an eye for an eye.]]

** Make that three examples from ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' with "The Arrival" [[DownloadableContent DLC]] where Shepard [[spoiler:[[OneManArmy annihilates an entire base of infantry, elite soldiers, and heavy mechs (think walking tanks) by him/herself.]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome S/he did this after being heavily sedated for two days.]]]]

** Amusingly enough, if you have a power set that allows you to summon an immobile pet, such as an Acid Mortar, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny summoning it in this mission will also grant]] ''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny it]]'' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny the awesome powers of a godlike Incarnate]], complete with an immunity to its built-in immobilization, and capped run speed.

** Entering a low level mission (such as the Old Ascalon missions) with one or more [[BadAss Level 20's]] in your party will most likely be a curb-stomp from start to finish.

*** Speaking of asari commandos, there's the War Assets entry for the Serrice Guard, which tells of how a Blood Pack mercenary gang which crash-landed on a planet took over a hundred casualties from traps, ambushes and night assaults over the course of nine days. When the Blood Pack finally gave up and surrendered, they did so to the asari commandos who were hunting them. [[{{Badass}} All]] ''[[{{Badass}} five]]'' [[{{Badass}} of them]].

* In the trailer for ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'', [[{{Badass}} Geralt]] slaughters an entire squad of Witch Hunters in the span of less than a minute. They don't even land one freaking hit on him.

* *In ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'', the Boss gets his arse handed to them by Zinyak the first time around.
** *Amusingly enough, in the DLC ''Enter the Dominatrix'' (which is [[WhatCouldHaveBeen based on the incomplete DLC]] for ''Saints Row the Third'' that eventually became ''Saints Row IV''), ''Zinyak'' is a ZeroEffortBoss whose huge life-bar is depleted in ''one hit'' from the Boss, who then finishes him off with a QuickTimeEvent. Zinyak even complains about it in the in-character commentary for the scene.

* ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'' has ''Puma concolor'' (the cougar), which ''will'' be killing you in ''[[OneHitKill one hit]]'' in multiplayer mode, and just giving you one extra chance of getting away in single player. Needless to say, the cougar has gotten a reputation of being a MemeticBadass on the game's GameFAQs board.

** 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.

* VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel has a fight bewteen Machias, Jusis and Rean against Instructor Sara who was way above their level and Rean against Victor S. Arseid in later chapters to establish power level. If one of your opponents is [[spoiler: an A-Rank Bracer]] and and the other is one of the greatest swordsman in the coutry, this should be expected.

** [[spoiler:The Panzer Soldats utterly and completely wreck the First Armored Division (the Imperial Guards no less), destroying even the most advanced of tanks with a single blow each]].
** [[spoiler:Crow inflicts one of these on Rean while both are operating their respective Divine Knights, with Crow pointing out that he's had three years to learn how to pilot his machine while Rean has only had a few minutes]].
** If you carry over your levels and equipment on New Game Plus, you can easily devastate Sara, even in Nightmare mode, by flashing her with Rean, Machias and Jusis's S-Breaks before she can even get a turn. So the game cheats by making it so that you can only reduce her HP to 1 and then she flashes your party with own S-Break for 49,999 damage each to annihilate them. If any of them had any sort of guard status up to protect against it, she'll just do it again.
** Similarly, you can have Rean hold his own against Victor for a while if you keep healing, but eventually he will hit him for 49,999 damage and it's over.
** At the end of the first Act of ''Cold Steel II'', all of the most major players of allied forces of the Noble Alliance descend upon Ymir. Obviously things do not go well for our intrepid heroes. It ends with [[spoiler:Rean agreeing to come the Noble Alliance's flagship airship for a meeting with the Noble Alliance's leader, Duke Cayenne.]]
