** Before that (but after ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2''), ''VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom'' allows you to punch out [[spoiler:[[{{Okami}} Yami]]]]. ''Nice''.

* In the backstory of ''Tsukihime'', the mage Zelretch is famous for being a True Sorceror, known for travelling between realities at a whim... and for killing Brunestud of the Crimson Moon, also known as [[Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} Type Moon]], the Moon's Ultimate Being, the greatest life form created by the Moon with the total power of that celestial body behind him. The details aren't explained, but apparently it involved ''dropping the Moon on Brunestud's head''. [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu He might have gotten turned into a vampire for his trouble, but he still defeated one of the most powerful beings in the universe, by himself, using only raw power]]. For contrast, Type Mercury, known as ORT, is a giant crystal spider, powerful enough to override reality with its own internal MentalWorld and obliterate vampire kings in an instant. It is also explicitly the most powerful being in the present NasuVerse timeline. Types are also [[EldritchAbomination alien]] enough that even Shiki, that Cthulhu-puncher extraordinaire, would be unable to kill them, because their concepts of death are so unrelatable to Gaia; the only way to kill ORT is by pure force, which ''nobody'' in the NasuVerse can currently bring forward.

* ''MarvelUltimateAlliance'' has the same issue. Your little super team fights nearly every supervillain in the Marvel Universe over the course of the game. As a result, a skilled player can defeat Mephisto, Galactus, Gladiator, Ymir, Loki, and [[spoiler: Dr. Doom coupled with the stolen god powers of Odin]] all with ''BadassNormal ComicBook/NickFury.''

* Played for laughs in the first episode of ''PennyArcadeAdventures'' ''On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness''. [[spoiler:Inciting Gabe to tackle a very Cthulian being, Tycho asks "Do you want to punch a god?" Gabe: "..." Tycho "..." Gabe: "..." Tycho: "..." Gabe: "Yes!"]]

* In the ''{{Pokemon}}'' games, you are able to capture legendary one-of-a-kind (per game) {{Mons}} that are often forces of nature. ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' of games contains Arceus, who apparently ''created the universe''. In order to capture Pokémon, you have to attack them, lower their [[HitPoints health]], and give them [[StandardStatusEffects status effects]] before you can do so, which is what makes it this trope.

* The videogame ''ShiningForce'' subverts this in the final fight with the Dark Dragon. Even after depleting its hit points, it's still not technically ''dead'', and the best that can be done is for the main character to stab his sword into the back of its head, and hold it there while the rest of the party escaped the collapsing castle.

* ''SilentHill4'': Walter is considered to be a god within the rules of the world he's created for himself. His spirit form completely controls the world and is able to warp things to his liking with his powers. Yet Henry manages to hold him back with simple weapons and somehow [[spoiler: plant the eight spears necessary to 'humanize' him]] without Walter getting in any good resistance, and he's limited to just guns and a chainsaw. (You don't even have to attack him; just [[spoiler: go right for the spears]] and Walter goes down as easy as a Borg shot with a modulating phaser). Even without his immortality though, Walter should still have enough power to easily slap Henry away and end his threat, with him still being tougher than an ordinary human. Yet Henry still manages to kill him rather lamely, even in the Really Bad ending where it's only temporary and Walter [[spoiler: comes back to kill everyone in the building]]. Either Walter doesn't know how to fight, or else the developers didn't know how to have a very average protagonist (Henry) engage such a powerful being and win without giving him some huge advantages and keeping Walter's powers at a minimum.

** In ''SonicAndTheSecretRings'' this trope is also shown (quite literally), where The genie and evil villain the Erazor Djinn uses all the rings to turn into a [[BodyHorror Horrific monstrosity]] called "Alf Layla wa-Layla" (Basically, one thousand and one nights in Arabian.), and begins to recreate the world in his own image, only to be stopped by Darkspine Sonic. Meaning, you knock his own attack back at him, fly up, and start punching the holy hell out of him.

* The ''{{Soulblazer}}'' trilogy has a trilogy of this trope - In ''Soulblazer'', you kill the powerful demon/god(?) Deathtoll with the Soul Blade (admittedly the most powerful sword in the whole world. In ''Terranigma'', you defeat the evil god Dark Gaia with what is essentially a SPEAR, and most heinously of all in ''IllusionOfGaia'' you also defeat the evil god Dark Gaia with nothing but your own ectoplasmic arm (as Shadow)!

** In CrisisCore, you can beat up [[BonusBoss Minerva]]. Particularely made a literal example, if the player continuously uses ''Costly Punch'' to .. really punch her out.

* 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.]]

* In ''{{Utawarerumono}}'', this trope is given a unique twist: [[spoiler: The deity the people in universe worship is both God and Cthulhu]], and he asks his own followers to beat the crap out of him, who happens to resemble the [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Eva Unit-01]] crossed with Franchise/{{Godzilla}}. [[spoiler: They succeed in beating their own God to the point the Cthulhu half is destroyed forever,]] just like said God asked for.
