** Perhaps the ultimate version of The Doctor using this trope came from the Series 9 episode "Heaven Sent", where the 12th Doctor is trapped in his own private hell, and the only way out are for him to either reveal a dangerous secret that he simply refuses to give up, or to go through a twenty-foot thick wall made of a substance harder than diamond. The Doctor takes 4.5 BILLION years to punch his way through. With his bare hands.

* If a Pokémon Trainer sufficiently offends Ash in ''Fanfic/TheGreatestThereWasOrEverWillBe'', he will often teach them a lesson in humility by battling them with his weakest Pokémon, often one which has a [[ElementalRockPaperScissors type disadvantage]] against the opponent's Pokémon, and even a [[JokeCharacter Magikarp]] at one point... and still win without any effort.

** The [[FanNickname Trolldier]] build in general. The gist of the build is basically taking the class with various powerful primary and secondary weapons and sticking him with a rocket launcher that does no damage, reducing him to {{rocket jump}}ing at people with the intent of beating them to death with a shovel.
** Sentry guns are [[InstantDeathRadius powerful enough to chew up anyone who enters their effective range]], but they have a finite turn rate, meaning that it is possible to strafe around a Sentry quickly enough that it cannot lock on. Consequently, it's not unheard of for a skilled player to [[https://youtu.be/3NViW3dttys?t=41s jump onto an unattended Sentry and poke it to death with a melee weapon]].

** Anything with a 2+ armor save or an Invulerable save better equal to or better than 3+ will result in the opponent resorting to this; anti-tank weapons, the intended counter, don't fire enough shots to reliably kill anything with those saves (they either come in units or have ridiculous amount of wounds) so most people resort to the above disco light show to deal damage. After all, if you're already going to have a pisspoor chance at killing it with one shot, why not go with a few hundred slightly more pisspoor chances that also have a chance at wiping them out in one go?

* In the ''AlienVsPredator'' card game, it was entirely possible to weaken the fearsome Predator with a barrage from your heavily armed Colonial Marines, such that the final killing blow could come from a rescued pet cat.

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarships'', some players choose a low-tier ship and division with another ship with much higher tiering for this reason (such divisions are often called "fail divisions"). The Umikaze has gotten a reputation for being one such cherry tapper; nothing is more humiliating than seeing your Tier X battleship get torpedoed by a Tier II destroyer.
