** Can be momentarily invoked by the Dragonborn in ''Dragonborn''. the ''Dragonborn'' [[DownloadableContent DLC]] where a the "Bend Will" shout temporarily renders dragons compliant enough to be ridden.ridden. It sounds awesome ''on paper'' and, while it does look cool, ''in practice'' you can only give them some orders, you're limited to magic or shouts on their back, you can't fast travel everywhere [[note]]Places like Whiterun or Solitude are separate cells from the overworld[[/note]], and eventually the dragon's service to you will end. At least it looks cool the first few times.

** Finally, the last incident: when the defenders of Evron

** Finally, the last incident: when the defenders of EvronEvron are allowed to run, the Evronians use their one way to keep her in check. That is, the fact they've tracked down the surviving Xerbians and are holding them hostage. That way they can get her in a device that will explode her, making her into a powerful and infinite power source for Evron... But they greatly underestimate her self-control, thus by the time they understand how to explode her Paperinik and one of the surviving Xerbians have already contacted Xadhoom and got from her the power they need to [[SlaveLiberation free all the Coolflames on the ship]], thus taking away the hostages. Evron blows up soon after.
** Because the authors love this trope, the PKNE relaunch stories give us Moldrock: an ancient and immortal tyrant [[spoiler: from planet Corona]] [[PhysicalGod with powers possibly comparable to Xadhoom]], he ruled his homeworld and a large empire with iron fist... Until his scientists, [[spoiler: led by Everett Ducklair]], hit him with a weapon that knocked him out, applied a restraining device, and shipped him to a pentadimensional world where his powers were almost completely suppressed.

* Happened in ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'': while Xadhoom is a PhysicalGoddess, the Evronians have the ability to capture her, and did so FOUR TIMES. Every single time, [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity Ensued]]: the first time they used a forcefield that could keep her sealed that was fueled by Duckburg's electrical grid, so Xadhoom was free the very moment Uno hacked the computers; the second time Xadhoom entered in their capturing device in a deal to save Angus, and disintegrated it the very moment the Evronians broke the deal; the third time they immediately transmitted her where they had a way to force her to comply, but Paperinik's sabotage brought her back (cue OhCrap for the Evronians); the fourth time they had her people in hostage, so she let herself being captured until her people rebelled and provoked enough chaos for her to escape and wipe out the HEART of the Evronian Empire. The Evronians tried it three other times, but it failed even more embarassingly: the first failed attempt consisted in a group of Evronians masquerading as Xerbians to get her to wear a controlling device, but she caught them on a slip and made a fool out of them before wiping them out; the second consisted in a weapon capable to absorb her enormous power, a weapon that wasn't fast enough in the absorption to finish her before she destroyed it; the third time in the middle of a battle they tried again the forcefield that captured her the first time, but Xadhoom dodged and they captured one of their own ships.

* Happened in ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'': while Xadhoom is Sort of a PhysicalGoddess, RunningGag between [[PhysicalGoddess Xadhoom]] and the Evronians have the ability to capture her, and did so FOUR TIMES. Every single time, (who exterminated her people) in ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures''. No matter if they succeed or fail, [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity Ensued]]: the Always Ensues]]:
** The
first time to capture her is actually Paperinik, who knows only that Xadhoom hates the Evronians, and thus they used could be allies against their invasion of Earth, and that she has mistaken for an Evronian in their first encounter. Then the Evronians (who still don't know what Xadhoom can do) show up to kill both, Paperinik kicks their asses... [[PlayAlongPrisoner And Xadhoom promptly frees herself and says they'll be allies]]. Paperinik's face is priceless;
** Later in the same story as above a group of Evronians successfully seal her in
a forcefield that could keep not even her sealed that was fueled by can destroy. To do so, however, they had to repurpose their ship's engine and use Duckburg's electrical grid, grid to power it, and the forcefield is promptly shut off when One hacks the power plant's computers.
*** This one shows up again in the AlternateUniverse "Universe Pk" stories, with the difference the Evronians weren't improvising and the forcefield was powered by their own power sources. Thing is, they also captured Paperinik, and the Raider, [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou who doesn't want anyone to steal his kill]], [[ResetButton rewinds time]],
so when the ship with the forcefield projector shows up they're ready and disintegrate it.
** In a following encounter
Xadhoom was free the very moment Uno hacked the computers; the second time Xadhoom entered in enters their capturing device in a deal to save Angus, and disintegrated it the very moment Angus. Then the Evronians broke break the deal; the third time they immediately transmitted her where they had a way to force her to comply, but Paperinik's sabotage brought her back (cue OhCrap for the Evronians); the fourth time they had her people in hostage, so she let deal... And Xadhoom promptly frees herself being captured until her people rebelled and provoked enough chaos for her to escape and wipe blows them up (this is also when the Evronians find out the HEART of about Xadhoom's real abilities, as the Evronian Empire. The Evronians tried it three other times, but it failed even more embarassingly: scientist there had the first failed attempt consisted in time to analyze her and survived);
** Later
a group of Evronians masquerading as Xerbians to get (Xadhoom's people) lure her in an ambush, planning to wear trick her into wearing a controlling device, but restraining device... Except [[ImposterForgotOneDetail they don't know what a Xarghon (traditional Xerbian welcome dance) is]], leading to Xadhoom seeing through their ruse... [[{{Troll}} And amuse herself with their attempts at guessing what a Xarghon is]]. When they finally catch on, she caught blows them on a slip and made a fool out of them before wiping them out; up;
** In another encounter
the second consisted in a weapon capable to absorb her enormous power, Evronians show up with a weapon that wasn't fast enough in can actually absorb all her powers. Thing is, it takes ''time'' to fully defeat her, and she has all the absorption to finish her before she destroyed it; the third time in she needs to ''enter the middle weapon and blow up everything'';
** In one
of a battle their latest encounters, the Evronians bank on her twisted sense of humour to let herself get captured, at which point they tried again promptly teleport her where they have the means to keep her in check. [[OhCrap Then they find out that Paperinik sabotaged the teleporter and she's coming back]];
** When Xadhoom attacks their PlanetSpaceship, one of the defending ships whips out
the forcefield that captured her from the first time, but Xadhoom dodged and time they captured one her. Upon noticing the ship sneaking up on her, [[DeadlyDodging she dodges and lets the projector capture another of their own ships.ships]], before blowing up both;
