* In ''Series/UltramanTiga'', the final monster was Ghatanothoa, the first born of Cthulhu, who covered the entire planet Earth in darkness. When Tiga fought this Great Old One for the first time, he got turned into stone. But after being revived by the light of humanity (the episode was named "To the Shining Ones" where children who are still believe in Ultraman Tiga (most adults, save the defence team, lost confidence) turned into light and merged with Tiga), Ultraman Tiga punched and sent it flying, kicked it, used signature beam attack on it, and finally killed it with a new beam attack, restoring Earth from its darkness.

* The ''[[Franchise/UltraSeries Ultraman]]'' franchise is entirely based on this. In ''Series/UltramanTiga'', every episode of every show, the final monster was heroes battle and defeat [[{{Kaiju}} living forces of nature]], {{Evil Overlord}}s, {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, HumongousMecha, and [[PunyEarthlings superpowered aliens]]. ''Series/UltramanTiga'' deserves a special mention, as in the GrandFinale he battles Ghatanothoa, who is none other than the first born of Cthulhu, who covered the entire planet Earth in darkness.

But after being revived by the light of humanity (the episode was named "To the Shining Ones" where children who are still believe in Ultraman Tiga (most adults, save the defence team, lost confidence) turned into light and merged with Tiga), Ultraman Tiga punched and sent it flying, kicked it, used signature beam attack on it, and finally killed it with a new beam attack, restoring Earth from its darkness.[[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Cthulhu]] himself!

* In the GrandFinale of ''Series/TheColbertReport'', the final "Cheating Death with Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, DFA" segment starts with the usual intro of Stephen playing ChessWithDeath, then distracting him while rearranging the pieces. Except that this time, Death finally catches him in the act and starts strangling him. Stephen manages to shoot and kill Death in self-defence with his revolver, [[ICallItVera Sweetness]], and absorbs Death's power ''Film/{{Highlander}}''-style, becoming immortal.

** For one villain (the Judge), all the mystical texts declare that "no weapon forged" can stop him. However, as Xander realizes, those texts [[PostModernMagik predate modern weapons]]. And thus, Buffy takes the Judge out with a rocket launcher.

** This is a recurring theme in ''Deep Space Nine,'' albeit mostly metaphorical. The Gods of the Dominion are the main antagonists for much of the show (although they are in fact changelings just like Odo.) And they stated that a type of radiation is harmless to humanoids but kills non-corporeal life forms, such as the Gods of Bajor in the wormhole and their EvilCounterpart, the Pah-Wraiths. You'd almost think they introduced religion into an entirely secular setting just to make this point.
