* The final boss of the ''AnotherCenturysEpisode'' trilogy is [[spoiler:Shin Dragon, from the ''Manga/GetterRobo'' series, which is capable of obliterating celestial bodies like Jupiter's moons with ease and can punch holes in reality.]] You can potentially beat it with anything in the game, from [[Manga/GetterRobo Shin Getter]] all the way down to [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam the RX-78 Gundam]] or [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross a VF-1 Valkyrie]].

* In ''VideoGame/JusticeLeagueHeroesTheFlash'', if TheFlash runs out of health while using his SuperSpeed BulletTime mode, the Black Flash (the GrimReaper to speedsters in the DCU) will appear to take you away. However, you can beat him up and keep fighting with low health. This is rather downplayed, though, as beating him up only stops him for the time being, and every time you do this without getting killed off, he will be much harder to beat.

* ''AgarestSenki'' may trump the other examples in here because in this game, you punch out ''six'' of them. Although, only two deserved to be punched in the face, and the rest just got dragged along.
** ''AgarestSenki2'' however plays with this one. While you see that Weiss kills Chaos in the opening, punching him out is a bad idea in this game since it caused a lot of problems to the other people. [[spoiler: This get subverted when it turns out Weiss ''did not'' stab Chaos. He was still discussing stuff with Chaos when fellow Cthulhu Mobius (disguised as Fasti the archaeologist) stabs through Weiss to stab Chaos.]] [[spoiler: If you go to the True End route, this trope then gets played straight again by punching out the 6 gods including Chaos and Mobius.]] Your head hurt yet?

** Averted with the Daedra throughout the series. The mortal forms they take when on Mundus, the mortal plane, can be killed and destroyed, but their essence always returns to Oblivion where it can be reformed. To date, while Daedra have been beaten, battered, and even fundamentally changed, nothing in the setting has ever been able to "kill" one.

** Averted Played with concerning the Daedra throughout the series. The mortal forms they take when on Mundus, the mortal plane, can be killed and destroyed, but their essence always returns to Oblivion where it can be reformed. Instead of "death", physically ruining a Daedra's body is called "banishment". To date, while Daedra have been beaten, battered, and even fundamentally changed, nothing in the setting has ever been able to truly "kill" one.one. That said, even [[PowersThatBe Daedric Princes]] are vulnerable to banishment, and it is considered a highly unpleasant experience by daedra nonetheless.

* In ''Videogame/SaltAndSanctuary'', the shipwrecked survivor will slay countless horrors on the island, culminating in [[spoiler:killing the Nameless God, who did this in his backstory by killing and usurping The Three, and potentially taking his place.]] The survivor can also potentially destroy [[spoiler:the undead Three.]] Several of the bosses are explicitly Cthulhu-inspired horrors called Kraeken that have taken on different forms.

* In ''Videogame/YuGiOhReshefOfDestruction'', you're able to beat Reshef the Dark Being in a duel, though he still tries one last attack to avoid being sealed away.

* ''DragonQuest'' games love this trope. Every final boss usually has the whole world scared shitless, generally proven themselves unbelievably evil, and are stupid powerful, and once their asses are kicked, the games in series go out of their way to make sure you know you just punched out Cthulhu, and usually every citizen on the planet is quite aware of just how damn badass you are at the same time.

* ''FireEmblem: Radiant Dawn'' requires you to kill a god with a mercenary and his posse. Granted, one important member of said posse [[spoiler:is a vessel for the equal and opposite half of that god]].

*** [[spoiler: Even that doesn't kill Ashera. It does destroy her physical form for a several hundred years and during that time Yune is able to recombine with her and they become Ashunera again.]]
** Subverted in ''FireEmblem: The Sacred Stones''. The previous group of heroes had to seal away the EldritchAbomination [[SealedEvilInACan within the titular Sacred Stones]], which over the course of the game naturally get broken. However, [[spoiler:in the closing moments of the game, the heroes seal it away again, leaving them to fight the mindless body but not the full evil. It is implied in the game that they ''could not'' defeat it, only seal it, just as the generation of heroes before them had to do.]]
** ''[[{{VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening}} Fire Emblem: Awakening]]'' gets in on this as well, done to [[spoiler:Grima who is essentially an evil dragon god]]. There are even two ways to do it: [[spoiler:either you return him to slumber, or you kill him off for good (though the latter requires the sacrifice of your Avatar)]]. Oh, and the reason Grima and his cult are after you is you're the vessel bred for him to possess.
** In ''[[{{VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden}} Fire Emblem: Gaiden]]'', this happens for the first time when [[spoiler: Alm kills Duma in order to save Celica. It required the use of the Falchion, which is just as much of a legendary weapon as as the Akaneian version. GoodBadBugs mean that Nosferatu can break past his defense, though.]]
