** Another is the infamous ''[[UsefulNotes/KatanasOfTheRisingSun Yamato]]''[[UsefulNotes/KatanasOfTheRisingSun -class]]. Yes, it was the biggest, baddest, and with [[{{BFG}} the biggest guns]]. But at the time the two ships (one more was finished as a carrier) were ready to sail against the YanksWithTanks, the latter had smaller, faster, more efficient battleships with guns [[ArmorPiercingAttack quite capable of hurting the Japanese giants]] - as well as radars linked to electromechanical computers allowing them to [[ColdSniper do so at night and from over the horizon]]; and there were several times more such Allied battleships. The fact that [[DeathFromAbove carrier aviation]] had obsoleted battleships altogether was incidental to their defeat.

* Iraq under Saddam Hussein's rule, while he boasted of having one of the largest army's in the world, all he had was numbers, as his military was composed mostly of unwilling conscripts, and equipped with outdated weapons since the Cold War. Needless to say Iraq got easily curb stomped in the Persian Gulf War, and in the US invasion of Iraq.

*** And just to pour salt in the wound, they consumed so much fuel the Japanese couldn't even afford to send them out to fight when they might have actually made a difference.



** Have you ever heard of the ''[[UsefulNotes/RedsWithRockets Sovietsky Soyuz]]''-[[UsefulNotes/RedsWithRockets class battleships]]? It was slightly bigger than the ''Bismarck'', but none of the four hulls were anywhere near completion by the time of the German invasion, and they were likely to be plagued by technical problems, since the Soviet Union was rebuilding its capital ship design school from scratch while permitting extreme size creep.

** And that's just the battleships that were built. Both Japan and Germany had grand plans for even more ambitious [[AwesomeButImpractical (and impractical)]] battleships that their deteriorating war situation scuppered.
** Have you ever heard of the ''[[UsefulNotes/RedsWithRockets Sovietsky Soyuz]]''-[[UsefulNotes/RedsWithRockets class battleships]]? It was slightly supposed to be quite a bit bigger than the ''Bismarck'', with bigger guns and thicker armor, but none of the four hulls were anywhere near completion by the time of the German invasion, and they were likely to be plagued by technical problems, since the Soviet Union was rebuilding its capital ship design school from scratch while permitting extreme size creep.

** ''Bismarck'' is another good example: while it outmatched anything the Royal Navy had on a ship-by-ship basis, it ''[[ZergRush was confronted by the entire Royal Navy]]''.

** ''Bismarck'' is another good example: while it outmatched anything the Royal Navy had on a ship-by-ship basis, it ''[[ZergRush was confronted by the entire Royal Navy]]''. She was actually supposed to be a convoy raider, designed to outrun anything she couldn't defeat by out-ranging it; unfortunately for her crew her engines and keel were damaged in the first engagement and the British fleet cornered her almost immediately.

* In ''VideoGame/CaveStory'' the protagonist goes in search of Sue and finds her at the end of the Egg Corridor, where she seems to be starting a BossBattle with a huge monster. She tells the mutant beast to bring it on and boasts "even [[GeekPhysique my brother's]] never beaten me!" The monster shuffles forward and hits her once, whereupon Sue gives up and desperately apologizes.

* [[TheNapoleon Curley]] in ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen'' is small and verbally confrontational. Candy theorizes his attitude is basically a manipulative way to get people's admiration or sympathy [[HeadsIWinTailsYouLose one way or another]].

* ''WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance'' has Pudge. He is an adorable young Penguin who is ready to fight anyone and anything that hurts his friends. His excuse for not fighting the [[BigBad Big Bad's]] henchman? "I didn't wanna to hurt the guy." Nevermind the fact that said henchman is a hulking gorilla who is at least six feet taller than Pudge. To his credit, he does try to fight the films Big Bad during her much deserved HumiliationConga, but she beats him with one swing of her arm. This is HarsherInHindsight when you consider that she is a small human who has been electrocuted, flattened and hit in the face prior to this failed fight among other things.

** Notably she's grown out of this after several occasions where it's bitten her in the butt. While still boastful and unrealistic about her actual skills, she is ''very'' quick to deny she has any talent in magic or fighting (though she still loves to antagonize those who do).
