** ''Anime/DragonBallZBrolyTheLegendarySuperSaiyan'': Broly was born with an overwhelming PowerLevel of 10,000, and King Vegeta, fearing the threat the newborn might pose to his empire, ordered his execution. As Broly gets older, he gleefully destroys entire planets and punches out his father's left eye when he tried to stop him, forcing Paragus to slap a PowerLimiter on him.

** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' provides a perfect example with Goku Black, Goku's EvilTwin and the BigBad of the Future Trunks Saga. With all of Goku's power and limitless growth at his fingertips and none of his conscience, Black is living proof of just how terrifying and unstoppable Goku would be as a villain.

***The conversation between Amanda Waller and Batman during this arc brings to a head the series' attitude towards this trope. After a number of run-ins with Cadmus, Batman does some digging and then confronts Waller after bypassing her house's heavy security to catch her in the shower.
--->'''Batman''': Whatever you think you're doing, if you present a threat to the world, the Justice League will take you down.
--->'''Amanda Waller''': If WE present a threat? You've got a space station floating above our heads with a laser weapon pointing DOWN. In another dimension, 7 of you overthrew the government and assassinated the President! We're the good guys, protecting our country from a very real threat: YOU.

** What's worse is that it's heavily implied that the Emperor planned to destroy Primarchs and Space Marines, after they would outlive their usefullness.

** The aforementioned "Crime Syndicate" story was the later basis for ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueCrisisOnTwoEarths'', where as planned the League is recruited by an alternate universe GoodCounterpart of ComicBook/LexLuthor to deal with the evil Syndicate which here are so powerful they are the ''de facto'' rulers of the world, bulling the President (Deathstroke!) and working on a bomb that can destroy the planet to hold the world hostage indefinitely (or as Owl Man chooses, to [[OmnicidalManiac blow up every universe in existence]]). Animation and voice actors aside, its written in a way that it can easily fit into regular DCAU continuity, and implicitly serves as a bridge between the regular ''Justice League'' and ''Justice League Unlimited'' series, so the League had ''that'' hanging over their heads as well.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' brings this up with [[GodEmperor Princess Celestia]] and her hypothetical [[SuperPoweredEvilSide counterpart]] [[EvilIsBurningHot Daybreaker]], who would be what Celestia would become if she decided that, as the most powerful pony in Equestria, she stopped caring [[AfraidOfTheirOwnStrength about the dangers of their own power]] and the wellbeing of others and decided to whatever she wanted with ''nopony'' capable of stopping her. Thankfully {{averted}} since the real Celestia is far too idealistic to fall down that path.

Badra, Mala, Kizo and U-Ban… are not. They’re confident that their powers allow them to get away with anything: Killing, raping, destroying…

** Before the Plutonian went full psycho, the only person capable of going toe-to-toe with him in a fight, Max Damage, was himself an embodiment of the trope. Max has his own excuse for it: he's incredibly strong and incredibly tough ... but as a result his skin is insensitive and he can no longer feel anything. Sleeping resets his powers to baseline momentarily, but he's got to shave or ... whatever else he wants to do and be able to feel it[[note]]Sex. We're talking about sex.[[/note]] ... as soon as he wakes up, because in less than an hour he's back to being invulnerable.
