* In ''LightNovel/Overlord2012'', the protagonist himself, Ainz Ooal Gown, ''is'' the bigger fish. As the former leader of one of the most powerful guilds in Yggdrasil before being transported to another world, he is easily able to brush off even the most powerful of this new world's monsters without so much as wasting a breath.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}'', Gyarados have a well-deserved reputation as terrifying, powerful and destructive monsters, but even they flee from Wishiwashi's powerful [[TheWormThatWalks School Form]], called the Demon of the Seas... and even then, Warlords have been known to devour entire schools of Wishiwashi whole.

* In the ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' [=DLC=], ''Lonesome Road'', a Deathclaw can be seen running in a cave. When you follow it you see it's corpse and what follows is probably the first encounter with a Tunneler, reptile humanoids that hit as hard as Deathclaws, attack in packs, travel underground, and breed like rabbits.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}}'', there's a ruined town that you can find remnants of a Raider encampment in. They were wiped out when Super Mutants moved in. By the time you get there, the town is full of dead Super Mutants and live Deathclaws.

* A couple of times in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''. In ''Literature/ProvenGuilty'', Harry has just [[spoiler:escaped from where Madrigal Raith and his lackey have been holding him hostage]] and they've started fighting... Only for the bad guys to end up running away as fast as possible when the book's actual BigBad shows up. ''Small Favor'' also has a sequence where Harry's trying to get away from a FallenAngel, only for [[spoiler:BadAss fairy assassin Eldest Brother Gruff]] to show up and take out the guy without even trying.

* ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'': You play as a {{Badass}} vampire. You have cool powers, you're resistant to gunfire, and you have incredible strength and speed. {{Muggles}} pose little to no challenge at all. [[ImplacableMan Werewolves]], on the other hand, are an entirely different story. There will be one instance in the game where you have to face one, and all you can do is run away. ''[[HopelessBossFight RUN]]''. [[spoiler:Or lure up to the observatory and crush it between the doors]].

* In the 260s BC, a group of mercenaries called the Mamertines holed themselves up in the Sicilian city of Messana, having seriously pissed off Carthage, the closest thing that the Mediterranean had to a superpower at the time. The Mamertines asked an up-and-coming Italian city state called Rome for help. Cue twenty years of the Romans proving they are the bigger fish in that particular pond, and Carthage was forever after relegated to "slightly smaller fish."
