* ''VideoGame/NocturneRebirth''
** Many enemies/familiars like the cat family and the Evil Swordsman have good offense and speed while having low defense, though Sorceries can help to either balance their stats or make them even more extreme examples of this trope.
** The Falling Star [[SoloCharacterRun solo party]] formation can increase Reviel's attack, magic, critical rate, accuracy, and speed while lowering his physical and magical defenses. As a bonus, he also gets the Sidewinder passive for free, allowing him a chance of following any physical attack with a basic attack spell.
** The AuthorAvatar of Shou also counts when he guards the DevelopersRoom. He can dual-cast spells that [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill deal damage in the thousands]], but if even one of your characters survives the assault and strikes back, they'll find that Shou is a OneHitPointWonder.

** Fighting types by far. These types of Pokemon commonly carry powerful moves and have a powerful Attack and a rare powerful Special Attack, but typically have poor defenses, mixed to low HP and useless resistances (Except to Rock). Primeape, for example, have a useful and lethal set on punch moves and powerful Fighting moves like Cross Chop and Close Combat, but pathetic defense and low HP. One use of Drill Peck or Psychic against it and it's instantly in trouble.

*Tracer from "VideoGame/Overwatch", similarly to the Scout, Can do a significant amount of damage at close range, but has the lowest amount of health out of any of the offense heroes. However, her ability to regain lost health justifies this...

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'': The final boss of the "No Mercy/Genocide" path, [[spoiler: Sans]], only has one hit point. But his attacks are so relentless, your only choice is to stay alive until he runs out of gas and you can hit him.

to:

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'': The final boss ''VideoGame/FateExtra'' has the playable Caster. She has the worst Endurance growth of the "No Mercy/Genocide" path, [[spoiler: Sans]], only three playable Servants, but her Magic growth is the best of all of them, and it is laughably easy to max out. Combine her usually abysmal Endurance with how she also has one hit point. But his attacks are so relentless, your only choice is to stay alive until he runs the least HP of the three, and she quickly becomes this by the endgame, surviving by coming out on top of gas and you can hit him.the TacticalRockPaperScissors, rather than soaking up hits.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'':
** Caster is intended to be this. With a whopping E in Endurance but capable of slinging Grand and Ritual-level magecraft in only seconds, she could easily level Fuyuki in a single night if so inclined. Unfortunately, most of the enemy Servants have a high rank in AntiMagic, severely weakening or outright nullifying her primary means of offense.
** Assassin combines this with FragileSpeedster. Like Caster, he has an E rank in Endurance, but his sword skill is unmatched, and nearly every one of his strikes would be fatal if his primary opponent wasn't Saber, and even she needs outside influence to be able to survive his [[BladeSpam Tsubame]] [[FinishingMove Gaeshi]].

** As a side note however, not ''all'' Tank Destroyers are this. Some, in particular from the British Empire and the US, are instead {{Stone Wall}}s [[note]] For example, the original British Tier 5 tank destroyer, the [=AT-2=] is a machine with 200mm of frontal hull armor at ''Tier 5''. Discounting weakspots, it's a massive chore to penetrate one. But it has only mediocre firepower at best. [[/note]] or {{Mighty Glacier}}s [[note]] The most famous example is the [=T95=], or the [[FanNickname Doom Turtle]]. A pants-soiling 155mm top gun with 750 alpha damage combined with a 305mm thick frontal armor.... and a top speed of only 13 kph. Even a ''Maus, going backwards'' outpaces this thing. [[/note]]. But they also have alternative tank destroyer lines that ''are'' {{Glass Cannon}}s too, like the British Archer or the American M18 Hellcat.

** Infiltrator Shepard can wield sniper rifles that deal a staggering amount of damage (a properly outfitted Javelin can kill nearly anything ''through a wall'' and can one-shot Brutes from cloak), but has no native way to recover shields quickly and doesn't exactly have the most impressive health or shields of all time.

* ''Sinjid'' has the Assassin and Priest classes. The Assassin is fast and has the highest chances of landing critical hits, while the Priest has many powerful magic attacks at its disposal. Both don't do very well in direct combat.
