* in ''Film/RoboCop2'' the arcade game, on the stage in the chemical plant, there are the mutants who run straight at you, electrocute you as soon as they touch you (so you can't "bodyslam" them like you can with other toughies), and take quite a few shots to kill, and appear with the same frequency of all mooks. Really the only thing that got me through that stage was lots of 20p pieces...

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/HauntingStarringPolterguy'': Some of the monsters in the underworld are very strong and hard to dodge. The arms/fists from the walls hit you very hard and those from the pits suck you in and your energy is very limited (you can only lose the game here).

* ''StreetsOfRage 3'' and the mohawked martial artists (Tiger/Leopard/Fabio). They move fast and hit hard with rapid series of kicks to the face and flying leaps. They sometimes arrive on the scene falling directly from above, feet poised to hit your face on the way down. They can (and often will) block almost any conventional attack you throw at them, including special attacks, with a mocking lack of visible effort. Their only weakness is their susceptibility to getting thrown or body slammed... if they are alone. When in groups, they exploit the stacking sprites as a team and form an unapproachable phalanx of forearm block and [[RapidFireFisticuffs Rapid Fire Footwork]] that is immune to most tactics and retaliates without pity from beyond melee range using leap-kicks.

* The NintendoDS version of ''VideoGame/SpiderManWebOfShadows''. Just... just about every single mook. Notable offenders include the shrieking ones found at the pier, anyone who can shoot those... those light-orb-things at you and, even worse, any mook found in the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon. Most of the above mentioned can knock you down, which is annoying since they can beat you up even while you're getting up again, while [[MyRulesAreNotYourRules you can't do the same with them]]. And it's a {{Metroidvania}} game. [[NintendoHard Yeah.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/GodzillaMonsterOfMonsters'', while overall a fairly easy game, has two utterly ''horrid'' examples:
** The tri-missile launchers in the mecha city and headquarter stages. While their attack is weak, they have a very difficult to hit hitbox (that is higher than you would expect, appearing just ''above'' the launcher) and they stagger Godzilla, making hitting them a chore. They also block Godzilla's progression and battling them leaves you vulnerable to everything else on the screen as well.
** These things have ''nothing'' on the dreaded inferno craft however. Practically unkillable and slown down by nothing, it sloppily homes in as it moves across the screen. It ignores mercy invincibility and inflicts constant damage as it slowly passes through it's target, and is easily capable of killing even high level players in one shot if it lands a hit. To top it off, even when the screen ''isn't'' already swarming with enemies (which is a rare occurence), the inferno craft is tricky to dodge. Since it appears as early as Mars, it's also typically the first thing to kill Godzilla in the game.

* The crawling titans from the ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' tribute game are even worse than their regular abnormal counterparts. Unlike regular titans, these things keep low to the ground (hence the name), making it tough for many players to target the neck and kill them. They are VERY fast on the ground too, making for an ''ugly'' time for any player caught on ground level with one and further making it harder to target the neck. Take to the air or get on a building? These things will quite happily leap up into the air to nom you. The only character who can take them out easily is [[spoiler:Eren in Titan mode]].

* In ''Franchise/StarWars: VideoGame/TIEFighter'', the A-Wings. Here's a quote from GameFAQS: The A-wing was a nasty little foe and the hardest rebel starfighter you could come up against in the original TIE Fighter (sans expansion packs). For those not well-versed on their ''Star Wars'' lore, the A-wing is a Rebel interceptor, a fast, dagger-like ship armed with laser cannons and concussion missiles and with engines unmatched by anything in the Empire's basic arsenal. In TIE Fighter, these little monsters were blindingly fast and incredibly maneuverable, capable of outrunning and outflying every player ship until the TIE Advanced found its way into the storyline. This incredible speed, combined with its compact chassis, made the A-wing incredibly hard to destroy. Even the anti-starfighter concussion missiles, usually a guaranteed kill, were useless against the A-wings, which would nimbly evade the missiles until they self-destructed. Not only were the A-wings difficult to kill, they were also dangerous, as the concussion missiles THEY packed could shred your unshielded TIE faster than you can say, "I'm your father"!

* {{HAWX}} has the fifth level, OFF Certification, and the hyper-competent, super-agile drones you have to dogfight while in [[InterfaceScrew OFF Mode]]. Thankfully none of the fuckers could kill you since it was essentially a tutorial unless you drive into the ground like an idiot, but [[EpicFail three drones that looked like Global Hawks with satellite dishes were outdancing]] [[CoolPlane a hyper-maneuverable experimental jet that never saw combat in real life]] arguably gave the most difficult dogfight in a game purportedly meant to be about air combat.
