* The SyfyChannelOriginalMovie ''Ba'al: The Storm God'' plays with this trope. While the military succeeds in severeing Ba'al from his power source with a nuke, the ''actual'' one to punch him out is another god, El, who the heroes summon to defeat him. Humanity still weakened Ba'al and gave El the opening, however.

* ''Film/TheAvengers2012'':
** Loki taunts every hero he speaks to and at minimum holds his own in direct combat. During the final battle he comes face-to-face with the ComicBook/IncredibleHulk. He's barely gotten 3 sentences out before Hulk grabs him and starts with the MetronomicManMashing, knocking him silly and taking him out of the fight. "Puny God."

* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'': The eponymous busters have to [[ForbiddenChekhovsGun Cross The Streams]] to do it, but they defeat Gozer the Gozarian, an ancient god worshipped by the Hittites, Mesopotamians, and the Sumerians around 6000BC that would take on a Destructor Form from the thoughts of humans in the area and wreak havoc once it was summoned into our world.
