** The ''Anime/YuGiOhTenthAnniversaryMovie'' Paradox's Sin (Malefic) set does him in. Paradox's set essentially hinged on weakening his opponents' monsters enough so that his overpowered beasts could curbstomp the DreamTeam of Yami Yugi, Judai and Yusei, essentially killing them. Yami Yugi starts the unraveling when he takes back Yusei's stolen Stardust Dragon and it was more or less a defensive waiting game, tanking attacks and rescuing fallen monsters until the time was right to flatten Paradox and save all of time.
* Minor example in ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'' (no real wagers were involved) in the episode where Rio demanded a duel from her brother, Shark. Rio tried to win by using a Field Spell that benefits Water-Attribute monsters ''and'' Xyz monsters, and used them to gain an advantage for a turn, summoning a powerful Xyz called Ice Princess Zereort. Unfortunately, she seemed to forget that her brother ''also'' specialized in Water-Attribute Xyzs, and was able to use the Field Spell to summon a ''far'' more powerful one called Shark Caesar, which was able to wipe her out.

** Gremmy Thoumeux had an ImaginationBasedPower that let him become a RealityWarper and uses it to great effect. He dies when [[BloodKnight Kenpachi Zaraki]] fights him and his continued refusal to die from Gremmy's brutal onslaughts make him briefly wonder if Kenpachi is an unkillable monster. [[spoiler: From there, PowerIncontinence sets in and Gremmy's imagination makes it so that Kenpachi ''does'' become an unkillable monster, and he proceeds to easily kill Gremmy from there.]]

** Although he wasn't killed, [[StoutStrength one]] [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Acrofatic fighter]] who went up against Krillin in the world tournament was so [[ArrogantKungFuGuy confident in his abilities]] that he let Krillin have the first punch. Krillin, of course, [[CurbStompBattle knocks him out of the ring in seconds with literally no effort]].

** Frieza was cut in half by his own attack (he even lampshades it; earlier in the fight Goku tries to trick Frieza into hitting himself with the Death Saucer and Frieza sees through it, but later on he loses track of his attack and flies into its path all by himself) which led to his first demise (though he got better later on).

* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Negi used the same power Rakan tried to use on him. It failed to keep him down for the count though.

to:

* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Negi Negi, knowing he was nowhere near strong enough to take on Rakan, tricked Rakan into hitting him with one of his stronger attacks, and used the same his newly-learned BlackMagic to absorb all of that power Rakan tried to and use on it against Rakan. On the other hand, this isn't an instant-win for Negi... all this strategy does is elevate him to Rakan's level, not overpower him. It failed to keep him down for the count though.[[spoiler:The fight ends in a draw.]]

* From the original ''Anime/Beyblade'' , one of Max's opponents, Queen, is using a modified attack ring with a sharp blade in an attempt to strip down Max's beyblade to obtain his bitbeast Draciel, but Max figures out a counterattack that causes the attack ring to spin in the opposite direction. The special attack ring was made only to work in one direction, so when Max's beyblade reversed it's spin direction, it ended up backfiring on Queen's own beyblade and literally tearing it apart.

* In the 12th volume of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'', Cao Cao was so CrazyPrepared that he also neglected the fact that his Medusa eye (which he had to replace his normal eye thanks to a BoomHeadshot from Issei) is weak to Samael's blood that is supposedly weak against dragons (and apparently, snakes). Of course, no one could have seen Issei coming BackFromTheDead when he should have been DeaderThanDead thanks to being coated by it. Not to mention, Issei practically stalled him by explaining something which was really out of character (from Cao Cao's perspective at least) and fires off a bullet which Cao-Cao admits was foolish.

* ''Literature/TanteiTeamKZJikenNote'': The criminals in ''The Backyard Knows'', animated as episodes 9-12. Basically speaking: they steals some rare butterfly samples from the museum, wanting to sell to collectors. The problem is one of them is particularly poisonous; one of them got poisoned to the point that calling the ambulance became unavoidable...
