** There are many times in the comics where Thor managed to break his hammer, Mjolnir, while fighting some of his most powerful enemies, usually by utilizing the Odinforce. One example is when he tried to fight Exitar, the largest Celestial, in one of his older comics and shatters his Mjolnir into pieces trying to break into its skull.

* Alright! Rocky Balboa hass KO'ed the powerful Soviet superman Ivan Drago. He has avenged his friend Apollo Creed and won over the hostile Russian audience in the process. ''RockyIV'' ends on a happy note... but leads into ''Film/RockyV'', where we learn that Balboa has gone bankrupt. He tries to take another title fight to earn money, but the match with Drago left him with crippling brain damage which forces him to retire from the ring.

** Later versions lack the Annihilator value - it turned out to be less fun than the designers liked - and so they increased the oomph of the on-cast triggers they get. For example, the new Emrakul, known as the Promised End, will take over your mind when your opponent summons her, ''even if you counterspell'', giving them a turn where they can make you trash your own board presence and make the most ill-advised attacks possible. You do get a make-up turn, but it'll generally be one with much less in your hand and the most powerful creatures you controlled dead in a ditch.

* Occurs whenever Batman and Superman fight, if Superman doesn't outright win. An almost literal example in ''ComicBook/BatmanHush'', when trying to survive against a BrainwashedAndCrazy Superman, even with his krypnoite ring, Batman could land a few punches on Superman before not being able to punch him anymore because impacts broke every bone in his hand.
** Another occasion in ''Death In The Family''. The Joker has just killed Robin, and Superman is withholding information from Batman. Batman angrily punches Superman. Given the dark tone of the story, what happens next is actually pretty funny.
--->'''Superman''': (Unfazed) Feel better now?
--->'''Batman''': (Clutching his fist) I think I broke a couple of knuckles!
--->'''Superman''': No, they're just badly bruised. You're lucky I rolled with that punch. You could've crippled yourself.
* In the Spider-Man storyline "Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut" Spider-Man's second fight with TheJuggernaut goes like this. Struggling to find a way to hurt him, Spidey tries ramming a tanker truck into him only to find it just made him angry. Ultimately Spider-Man manages to win the fight by tricking Juggernaut into a load of cement, but due to how Juggernaut's powers work (he doesn't need to eat, drink, sleep, or even ''breathe''), Juggy eventually just dug his way out. Keeping the latter part of the trope from being played straight, Spidey's confrontations with the Juggernaut after that were rare and handled ''much'' differently; in the most recent one, Spidey simply gave him what he wanted so he'd go away.

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}:
** Once in the Pre-Crisis universe Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} and Comicbook/{{Superboy}} attempted to punch Comicbook/{{Darkseid}}. They were amped up by Highfather to insane amounts and let's remember they could ''pull an entire galaxy's worth of planets without said power up''. None of their punches [[NighInvulnerable even hurt]] Darkseid and barely even catches his attention.
** Supergirl trashed the Anti-Monitor during the ''Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', but he took her out. She died and her existence was erased from the memory collective of the universe... for a while.

** The Darkness comes very close to [[spoiler:''killing God himself'']] in the Season 11 finale. Dean initially assumes this will give her total control of reality, but she explains to him that [[spoiler:since [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil darkness and light cannot exist without the other to contrast it with, it will actually destroy everything in existence, [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum including herself.]]]]

** A rare villainous example. Admiral Zhao manages to kill Tui, the Moon Spirit. La, the Ocean Spirit, gets pissed, fuses with Aang into an enormous OneWingedAngel, and lays an absolute smackdown on a massive Fire Nation fleet. After Tui is revived via HeroicSacrifice, La parts with Aang, grabs Zhao, and [[DraggedOffToHell drags him underwater.]]

** In the third movie the power of the RealityWarper Unown creates mons that completely curbstomp everyone the heroes throw at them.
** In the 13th film Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina, three Legendaries among Legendaries that control reality, [[spoiler:have this happen to them, when Arceus, {{God}} of the Pokemon world, decides he's had enough of them.]]



* The beginning of the HGSS arc of ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' starts off with Gold [[spoiler:facing off against Arceus]]. Needless to say, his team is getting their asses kicked, though Gold says that they just have to hold out 'till Silver arrives. How that's going to make a difference is yet to be seen.
