** 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.

* In ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' lore, the Forerunners were forced to activate the Halo Array in order to stop [[TheVirus the Flood]]. The downside? The Halos did so by killing ''all'' sentient life left in the galaxy, including almost every Forerunner. Even worse, several Forerunner installations that were left with intact Flood samples have only limited defenses against outside interlopers vulnerable to Flood infection. Eventually, the Flood on Delta Halo are able to take advantage of this to escape and infect Slipspace-capable ships, with one making it all the way to [[spoiler:Earth; it takes an allied Elite fleet glassing a chunk of Africa to prevent the planet from falling to the Flood]]. While the good guys do eventually defeat the Delta Halo outbreak, the fact that there are still many Flood samples out there waiting to be released (not the mention the Flood's potential ''extra-galactic'' origins) means that the galaxy can't rest just yet.

* In ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' lore, the Forerunners were forced to activate the Halo Array and commit mass suicide to stop the Flood from taking over the galaxy. The downside? It only sent the Flood to sleep, and now the galaxy is defenseless. And also, because every species that was picked to survive the firing eventually discovered the Halos, the Flood are released again, and nearly take over Earth once they're able to infect a Slipspace-capable ship. Though they are [[spoiler:stopped by glassing part of Africa]], they then begin a {{plan}} to have the humans and Covenant Separatists deactivate the Halos and then [[spoiler:double cross them, hoping to kill them all.]]
** They are then fittingly [[spoiler:taken down by Cortana's own {{plan}}, having lured the Flood to the one place in the universe where the replacement Halo (which was destroyed in the first game) can be fired to kill the Gravemind without actually hitting the rest of the galaxy]].
** However, this trope comes back if Cortana's story in ''Halo Legends: Origins'' (in which she was a Rampant UnreliableNarrator) is true in certain respects. If the right parts are true, the Flood are still around, and our heroes can't use that plan again.

* ''VideoGame/XCom'' follows this trope with Terror from the Deep. X-COM forces manage to destroy the EldritchAbomination that the aliens were attempting to revive that ''definitely'' would have killed humanity (being effectively invincible once awoken). Unfortunately, the alien city T'leth (in which the abomination was sleeping) managed to rise above the waves before the final victory, and explodes rather spectacularly. This first of all kills all the aquanauts who secured the final victory, and second, severely poisons huge swaths of the ocean and setting off cataclysmic cascading environmental disasters, such that by the time of the final game in the series, ''X-COM Apolcalypse'', the earth has almost completely been reduced to a wasteland.
** And by the end of ''Apocalypse'', humanity's last bastion of hope, Mega-Primus, has been devastated by the extended interdimensional war.

*** Yes, but it's not usually taken to this extent. ''[[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne Nocturne]]'', for example, ends on a fairly upbeat note if you get the Freedom ending (if we ignore the fact that you have simply given this incarnation of the universe some time until God decides to reboot it again). ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' completely averts this, and strongly hints [[spoiler:after beating Margaret]] that [[spoiler:Persona 3's main character's death might be somehow reversible.]]

* Maxim's battle with the [[JerkassGods Sinistrals]] in ''VideoGame/{{Lufia}}'' in the original and ''Rise of the Sinistrals''. He and his party managed to defeat all four of them, but [[spoiler: his LoveInterest Selan is fatally injured, and Artea also later lost his eyesight from the battle.

Worst of all, the Sinistrals weren't gone for good, Erim reincarnated [[spoiler: as Lufia]], and her mere existence revived the other three Sinistrals. While TheHero in the original game and his party were able to defeat them, his refusal to kill Erim for good meant that the Sinistrals would return '''AGAIN''', leading into the events of ''The Legend Returns''. There's a smaller-scale example in ''The Legend Returns'' as well, when Aima's [[OldMaster martial arts master]] fights Gades. Gades is slightly scratched and impressed enough by his strength to spare everyone else, while the master dies of his wounds.

The Hiigarans decided to use their recently salvaged, super-powerful LostTechnology starship to [[LookWhatICanDoNow lay the smackdown on a major Vaygr force]]. Thing is, they underestimated how badly the ship deteriorated over the millenia: when they sent it into combat, its [[WaveMotionGun Phased Cannon Array]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome fragged a Vaygr battlecruiser in a single shot]]... and promptly burned out every single power conduit inside the ship, damn near blowing up the Dreadnought as well. It took extreme effort by the Hiigarans to keep the Vaygr from finishing the damaged Dreadnought off, plus [[HigherTechSpecies Bentusi]] assistance to partially repair the cannon until it could operate at even a reduced output - but not before [[DemonicSpiders Progenitor Keepers]] [[FromBadToWorse also homed in on the Dreadnought to retrieve it]], forcing the Bentusi to [[HeroicSacrifice blow themselves up]] to save the Dreadnought.
