* 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.

* 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."

* Near the end of ''VideoGame/{{Outlast}}'', Chris Walker, who up to that point had the been recurring/main antagonist of the game, as well as being a hulking behemoth of a man, is just about to deliver the finishing blow to the protagonist, [[NonActionGuy Miles Upshur]], before he is grabbed by the [[{{Nanomachines}} Walrider]], which proceeds to throw him around the room like a ragdoll, finally shredding him to bits in a vent grate.

* Starting in the 1st century and continuing until the 5th, the UsefulNotes/RomanEmpire was almost constantly being invaded by Germanic tribes with names like the Vandals, the Goths and the Alans. It turned out that all of these barbarians, who inspired fear and loathing in the Roman mind, were in fact fleeing from ''their version'' of big, scary barbarians: the Huns.
