** In ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'', when you learn that [[VideoGame/FateExtra Francis Drake]] [[spoiler: has a Holy Grail]], she explains that she mugged some guy for it, and only kept the tacky thing because [[MundaneUtility it never runs out of rum]]. Her crew promptly interject that by "some guy" she means ''the Greek god Poseidon himself'', whom Drake insists wasn't ''that'' impressive.

* An "Did You Just [[spoiler:Make Out With]] Cthulhu" example (see also the ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' example) occurs in the good ending of ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'', when Adell stops the real Overlord Xenon, [[spoiler:Rozalin]], by [[spoiler:Frenching her]]. [[spoiler:Did You Just Make Out With Cthulhu]] is now its own trope (sort of) - see [[spoiler:DivineDate.]] Sadly, there is no "Broke your dick having sex with Cthulu" trope.
** A straighter example would be when Adell pulls a GetAholdOfYourselfMan on [[spoiler:Rozalin's SuperpoweredEvilSide]], an OmnicidalManiac that just finished thoroughly trouncing a level 1200 (in standard RPG levels, by the way) overlord without even breaking a sweat. Did He Just BrightSlap Cthulhu? Yes, and it ''worked''.

*** The climax of the main plot has you [[spoiler: go head-to-head against a fully-powered Molag Bal, god of schemes, as he wields his iconic mace.]] Granted, you're divinely powered at the time, but it still counts.



** After Emperor Mateus of Palamecia (in the world of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII''), died, the evil half of his soul went to Hell, where it proceeded to single-handedly slay the Devil and take over his demonic powers. The other half? It went to heaven to [[AGodAmI become God/Become God]]. The celestial chain have never suffered a worse punch-out.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'': Neo-Exdeath is a ''melange'' of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s [[SealedEvilInACan sealed or sent to sleep]] within the Dimensional Rift. Its appearance is as of dozens of corpses and demons blindly sewn together.
** Kefka, having usurped position as the sole source of magic in the world of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' and [[AGodAmI become a god/Become God]], can be defeated by GoodOldFisticuffs, blasting him with magic, or abusing the [[GoodBadBug Joker Doom]] trick.

*** Far stronger than him ([[GamePlayAndStorySegregation in game terms]]) are the [[BonusBoss Weapons]], in particular the Ruby Weapon, which can instant kill two characters, has incredible defense, and looks kinda like a eldritch abomination with all the tentacles. He can be defeated with a single level 7 character. It's pretty easy, with the right material and heat resistance. Takes half an hour, but what can you do? It is an unstoppable force representing the life force of the earth.
*** Averted in ''KingdomHearts'' and its sequel where he is much harder to 'beat', since you don't really kill him. Don't worry, the series has its own {{Eldritch Abomination}}s to punch out.

** An Honorable mention goes out to ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' where in there are TWO Eldritch Abominations. The first and more easily recognizable as actually being an Eldritch Abomination is Anima, an Eidolon who the protagonists have to fight because [[spoiler: she (yes that horrifying thing is a she) is simply doing the bidding of her insane son who has mad delusions of marrying the main heroine in order to temporarily save the world from the other more dangerous Eldritch Abomination]] The other one is the gigantic SpaceWhale known as Sin [[spoiler: who turns out to NOT be the final boss, no that honor goes to a [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere Space Gnat]]]] What's worse is that Sin can't be killed because whoever kills him BECOMES him.

*** In the ''Heavenward'' expansion for the game you do this another two times (to Ravana and Bismarck) [[spoiler: Actually another ''fifteen'' times as in addition to those two you beat the thirteen knights of the [[TitleDrop Heavenward]] ''at the same time'']]. Its actually getting to the point where some people outright don't believe you character exists since how could anyone person kill that many gods?

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

* Common in the ''VideoGame/{{SaGa}}'' series, which has a tendency to base bosses on various mythical deities, not just the final ones.

* In ''TheWitcher'' Dagon getting killed by Geralt at the [[spoiler:end of chapter 4]] is pretty inevitable, as you can get him in the bestiary by chapter 2. Interestingly, the god isn't defeated directly, but by killing his worshipers, [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly depriving him of prayer]].

* In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and its derivative works, Servants are [[HumanoidAbomination Humanoid Abominations]] and are not only nigh impossible for modern humans to fight and defeat, but [[NighInvulnerable human weaponry will flat out not work on them]] unless magically crafted or enchanted. Despite this, in ''Unlimited Blade Works,'' the visual novel's second route, [[TheHero Shirou]] takes on [[TheEpicOfGilgamesh Gilgamesh]], the strongest Servant to ever exist (aside, arguably, from [[spoiler:[[TheBible Solomon]]]] from ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder''), in a one-on-one duel, and come out the victor. His ability to do so is sheer coincidence, and Shirou acknowledges that if he were up against any other Heroic Spirit, he would most likely lose, as they are masters of their weapons whereas he is merely an "owner" of weapons, but as Gilgamesh was himself more of an "owner," it leveled the playing field. Even so, he still managed to win a fight against a demigod and humanity's oldest recorded hero.
** Shirou manages to do it at least once (and up to three times) more in ''Heaven's Feel'', the third and final route. [[spoiler:First, when [[TheBerserker Berserker]] (whose true identity is none other than [[ClassicalMythology Hercules]]) -- corrupted by [[{{UsefulNotes/Zoroastrianism}} Angra Mainyu, All the Evils of the World]] -- is sent after the heroes, Shirou (with the help of [[FutureBadass Archer's]] arm, which was grafted to his body after he lost his own) manages to project Berserker's own Noble Phantasm back at him and kill him nine times in one blow. The second occurs in a Bad End, but is no less badass -- using only the knowledge from Archer's arm and a technique using the short swords Kanshou and Bakuya, Shirou is able to win a one-on-one duel with [[Myth/KingArthur Saber]] [[PaintItBlack Alter]]. And lastly, in the Normal End, Shirou is able to project Excalibur to kill ''Angra Mainyu himself'' with one final attack.]]

** Then VideoGame/BravelySecond ups the ante with Providence, an embodiment of despair who has been shaping Ba'als to attack Luxendarc [[spoiler: using the sorrow from Vega's memories]] and is even [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou aware of the player's action and can act against them]]. Again, nothing stops you from punching it, even literally so if you brought Monks to the mix.

* The ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' series is rather fond of this one. First up was Gorea, an EldritchAbomination that wiped out some precursors and ended up {{sealed|EvilInACan}}. Samus unsealed it and kicked its ass. Second was the Emperor Ing, a demonic DimensionLord that Samus shot to death. Finally, there was the sentient planet of Phaaze, whose ToxicPhlebotinum was corrupting the universe itself. [[EarthShatteringKaboom Samus blew it up.]]

* In ''QuestForGloryV'', the Dragon of Doom is not a true dragon, but a fire elemental. One so powerful that it's a perfectly viable option to ''[[EarthShatteringKaboom is to nuke the entire damn island of Silmaria to get rid of it]]'', and it's said in legend that the Dragon can't actually be slain, only imprisoned. So naturally, the Hero goes in and kicks its ass outright. In fact, while one of your allies is ''supposed'' to [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifice themselves]] to even make it possible to defeat and imprison it, it's ''entirely possible'' to destroy the Dragon without it. And if you rescue [[spoiler: Katrina from Hades]], they outright ''refuse'' to allow anyone to die.[[note]]Performing the Sacrifice significantly reduces the Dragon's health, which ''does'' help quite significantly due to the [[TimedMission limited amount of time you have]] to defeat the Dragon. Fortunately, [[spoiler: Katrina]] is ''that'' powerful.[[/note]] ScrewDestiny indeed.

* In the SNES strategy game ''[[{{Langrisser}} Der Langrisser]],'' the party, which starts off as only a pair of friends from a small village, eventually grows powerful enough to [[spoiler: challenge Lushiris, the Goddess of Light. More accurately, the main character can one-hit kill her if built right]]. Rohga puts it quite bluntly, in fact: [[spoiler: "Holy shit... Incredible! You've even killed a deity!"]]
