* The Xenomorph in ''VideoGame/AlienIsolation''. Not only can it run much faster than you, but it's completely immune to [[KillItWithFire nearly]] all of your weapons and [[OneHitKill if it manages to grab you, game over]]. If it sees you, you're pretty much screwed.

* Most [[SNKBoss bosses]] in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' tend to be this.

* Most [[SNKBoss bosses]] in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' tend to be this. Particularly [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity the "Orochi" forms of Iori and Leona]], who become extremely fast over their normal counterparts (aptly, you will fight one of them as the sub-boss of ''The King of Fighters '97'' before going on to duel with the Orochi Unleashed team and Orochi itself). This also extends to the {{True Final Boss}}es of ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium Capcom vs. SNK 2]]'', God Rugal (Rugal mixing his Orochi power with Akuma's Satsui no Hadou ki) and an Orochi-enhanced Shin Akuma, who both move at the same rate as Orochi Iori.

* Good God, the Shopkeeper in ''VideoGame/Spelunky''. He outperforms the player character in speed and power, and packs a mean shotgun to boot. In many ways, it takes more skill to become a Shopkeeper hunter than to defeat the final boss. However, the player character can also be this, depending on playstyle and accumulated resources towards the end of the game.

** The Japanese-built O-I Experimental is this for its tier. It's a true-blue heavy tank, weighing 100 tons, and yet it has a top speed of 40 kph, and unlike some tanks, it can ''reach'' it. It also has a respectable 75mm of armor and 700 hit points, some of the best defenses in its tier. Finally, it can carry a Japanese-built 10cm cannon, which has good penetration, extremely high alpha damage, and a decent rate of fire. If the armor were better angled or the tank weren't the size of a barn and thus very easy to spot and hit, it would dominate its tier.

%% * From the ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' series, Ridley is a super-intelligent killing machine that breaths fire and eats corpses, as well as [[PlayerCharacter Samus Aran's]] most hated enemy. He's also about fifteen feet tall, utterly towering over Samus. You'd think he'd be slow and easy to avoid so you can pick him off with your ArmCannon, right? '''Wrong.''' There is a reason he usually is ThatOneBoss.
* Samus of ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' counts. She's a power-armored badass who can soak up damage like a sponge, is death at both short and long range, and is capable of reaching Mach 1. The exception to this is the Prime series, where she's as strong as ever but not nearly as agile.

%% ** Way back in the original ''Warcraft'' RTS, the two EliteMook units, the human Knight and the orcish Raider, both filled this role. They had 5 Armor, the best anyone of their species could have, 90 HP, and moved about the battlefield swiftly on their mount.

%% * Although in theory the right mix of items from the (in)famous ''{{Warcraft}} III'' map ''VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients'' allows any of its player characters to become one of these, only a few really fit conceptually. Amongst these are the Chaos Knight, who has the highest base movespeed and can summon unusually powerful illusions via his [[LastDiscMagic ultimate spell]] as tanking and DPS; the Lycanthrope, whose SuperMode maxes his movespeed and lets him make better use of attackspeed bonuses as well as giving a damage multiplier; finally the Slithereen Guard, whose Sprint move nearly maxes movespeed and whose armor-reducing [[LastDiscMagic ultimate spell]] lets him gain a large edge over his targets. These three happen to have Strength as their dominant attribute, giving higher un-enhanced health maximum and regeneration compared to most.

* ''Warcraft 2'', Knights and Ogres filled this role. Good damage, good armor, good hit points, fastest ground units. Then consider Orcs had the Haste and Bloodlust spells. With a good click speed, you could turn your ogres group into a mass of death.

** And then there's [[OlympusMons Arceus]]. Having 120 in EVERY stat (which makes it either faster, stronger or more resistant than every other Pokémon), an insane movepool (only bested by Mew, who can learn every TM/HM, and Smeargle, who can learn all but two moves), and, most importantly, can take on any of the 18 types. In short, you can tweak your Arceus to counter, duplicate or best any of the other 717 Pokémon.

** Sephiroth's appearances in the ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' games count: he's got multiple health bars, beyond insane reach with that sword of his, is as fast if not faster than you, and swipes significant chunks of your health everytime he hits you - and he ''will'' hit you.
