** On the subject of ''Battle Network'', the second and third games feature Scuttles, which are practically [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot demonic armored elementally-aligned deathray-shooting robotic spider viruses]]. It's not until the third game that they start being a problem. The green ones sprout vines that move across the field and crush you ForMassiveDamage, requiring obscene amounts of ButtonMashing to get out of, all the while [[GoddamnedBats holding you still so the others can murder you]]; the blue ones spit guard-breaking ice cubes that clog up the field FAST; the red ones shoot fire towers insanely easy to faceplant into dodging everything else; and the yellow ones call down lightning with completely unexpected timing, which are also easy to faceplant into if dodging too fast. Oh, and the white and [[KingMook black]] ones shoot DEATH RAYS OF DOOM. And they have stronger auras. The event battle required to obtain their Virus Chip to summon one, which many players newly visiting the BonusDungeon will accidentally run into, will kick your sorry ass back to the surface. Oh, and they become a random encounter in the final area of the BonusDungeon, complete with infuriating terrain. IN GROUPS. Beware.

* Hellhounds from ''VideoGame/DragonsDogma'' are probably the epitome of this trope. You encounter them very late in the game, but that doesn't stop them from being the most aggravating enemies in the game that even seasoned players still end up having trouble with. They don't stagger very easily, so it'll take a few hits before you can actually make them flinch or knock them down. They do NOT sit still, and run all around the place in an effort to confuse you. '''Their''' attacks have no problem stun-locking you or knocking you down, as they possess a long range fire breathing attack that will hit for lots of damage and most likely leave you on the ground. But that's not all! While you are on the ground, they can take a hold of you and drag you off somewhere. They can either throw you off a cliff (if it's too high, you die), or bite at you [[ForMassiveDamage for massive damage]] while you shake them off. Finally, they come in groups of no less than three. Yup, these guys are mangy mutts from ''hell.''

** From VideoGame/MarioAndLugiPaperJam is the Paper Piranha Plants. They have an annoying fire attack that can burn Mario and Luigi and does double damage to Paper Mario. Their other attacks are not much better.

** ''Videogame/{{Persona Q}}'' has the Burning Beetle, which appears in the third floor of the first labyrinth, and exists to tell you the game has stopped screwing around. It can attack twice per turn, hits ''really'' hard, has a ton of HP and can use full-party hitting Fire spells and inflict Magic Bind. It's also resistant to both OneHitKill elements, so you can't cheap your way out of it. It also tends to be the thing to ambush you on Power Spots on this floor.

*** The Prime Magus and Vehement Idol. They start showing up after the 2nd boss of the Adamah Block, and are ''Level 88 and 89 in an area with an average enemy level in the mid-to-high 60's!'' The Idol isn't that bad due to its weakness to Light, but the Prime Magus has ''Mind Charge and Megidolaon'' and is surprisingly durable for a [[SquishWizard Magus-type]] Shadow. And it's not just a magical powerhouse, its standard physical attacks can oneshot you party members if they critical. And these things aren't even Crimson Shadows, so you never know when you'll run into them.

** Brassbanfrogs, from the late game and postgame, are annoying by themselves; they absorb negative (long-range) attacks to heal themselves, which include some of the cooler pins you've been collecting up to this point. They become incredibly dangerous in the BonusDungeon, New Pork City, however. On each floor of the dungeon, you can only use a single brand of pinó and many brands don't **have** positive (close-range) attacks that can take the frogs out. Unless you cotton on to the fact that [[spoiler:Unbranded pins will still work]], the frogs will stick around and generally give you a very hard time.

*** Paper Boomerang Bros. as well. They have a really difficult to dodge attack where they fire two boomerangs at you. Failure to hammer both of them at the same time with make it nearly impossible to hit the other one before it hits you. And if you do fail to counter this attack, it is likely to add another Paper Boomerang Bro to the field.
*** Shiny Paper Enemies. If you thought the normal ones were bad, try one with its stats jacked up to boss levels. Especially if it has more than one layer.
