* Still in great shape, but certainly past his prime was [[{{Dragonball}} Piccolo Daimaoh]]. He managed to curbstomp Goku the first time they met, before he got rejuvenated by the Dragon Balls. Also, sort of Type 3 for Pilaf, who, even if he didn't get killed, also got no gratitude from Piccolo and got ditched pretty quickly.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'', three ghosts with the attire and personalities of gangsters sneak into the Firehouse in an attempt to spring the "boss-lady" (Spiderlegs, a powerful ghost who was jailed off-camera) but have no idea how to work the Containment Unit. So they decide to grab Slimer and hold him for ransom, which quickly turns into a PityTheKidnapper story that results in ''them'' getting busted. (And worse - for them - contained with their ''very'' angry boss.)

** The Clairvoyant himself is later rescued by [[spoiler: Grant Ward]], after he's taken into custody by S.H.I.E.L.D. in "Turn, Turn, Turn". In a unique twist, the audience isn't even aware that this character ''is a villain'', much less TheDragon, until he saves [[spoiler: Garrett]] and [[spoiler: murders Victoria Hand and her guards]]. For this reason, it's regarded as one of the most [[HolyShitQuotient memorable]] scenes in the entire series.

* In ''Megamind'', Minion constantly does this with his boss, Megamind. Of course, Megamind's "prison" cell is a very comfortable home for him, so it's not usually a big issue.
