* The TrueFinalBoss of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros 3DS'' is the Master Core, who [[EasyModeMockery doesn't appear on lower intensities]], [[BaitAndSwitchBoss replaces Master Hand and Crazy Hand mid-battle]], and [[OneWingedAngel has several forms, each more dangerous than the last]]. Except for the ''very'' last form: a motionless orb that does nothing except wait for you to blast it offscreen. If you take ''too'' long to kill it, it'll unleash a series of OneHitKill energy waves, but if you dodge those it just self-destructs.

** At the end of the Buu Saga, Goku and Vegeta remove Buu's absorbptions and he reverts back to his original form, Kid Buu. He's weaker than Fusion Super Buu (Buu after he absorbed Gohan, Gotenks, and Piccolo). Regardless, he is still a major threat because Gohan and Gotenks were knocked out when Kid Buu blew up the Earth, leaving only Goku and Vegeta alive to fight him. Kid Buu is also the MOST dangerous of all the Buu forms because he loses all his good influences, making him an engine of pure destruction and unpredictability. It should also be noted that how much Kid Buu is a ClippedWingAngel is still [[BaseBreaker debated]] within the ''Dragon Ball'' fandom, since the manga leaves it vague how strong Kid Buu is to the other Buu forms.

** In Movie 12, Broly is turned into something akin to an EldritchAbomination due to a culture fluid, and despite this, he remains as much of a killing machine as before. However, he melts in the culture fluid and it seems he's dead. That is, until Goten, Trunks, and Krillin watch in horror as he arises as a gargantuan monster larger than a mountain and looks as if he could destroy the world many times over by simply breathing. Instead of an epic clash, he gets wet and is killed by the water. The heroes have no problem taking him out from there.

* In TheMovie version of ''MyFavoriteMartian'', the BigBad, Elliot Coleye (the head of SETI), tastes some [[AppliedPhlebotinum nerplex]] and undergoes a typical OneWingedAngel transformation sequence, complete with monologue, EvilLaugh, and [[SkywardScream spinning downwards camera]]. Not only does the end result look pretty goofy, but he gets HoistByHisOwnPetard as SETI officials suddenly appear and mistake him for a genuine martian.

* At the end of ''VideoGame/IndianaJonesAndTheFateOfAtlantis'', Indy convinces the evil Colonel Kerner to try the ascension machine in lieu of using him as a guinea pig. As it activates, he becomes taller and taller, his eyes glow, and he can feel the power of godhood surging through him when -- he suddenly crumples into a misshapen little imp. Horrified by his appearance, he kills himself by jumping into the lava. Par for the course in an [[IndianaJones Indy]] climax.

* In the webcomic version of One Punch Man, Garou goes through this, transforming into a monstrous form with vastly increased strength, but Saitama notes that he's actually weaker than he was before due to lacking the skill and agility he had in his earlier forms, and he reverts back to his humanoid form after a few of Saitama's attacks.

* ''VideoGame/InfamousSecondSon'' does this during the FinalBoss fight. [[spoiler:However, it happens not to BigBad Augustine, but to ''the player'' - Augustine is GenreSavvy enough to let Delsin absorb her powers so that if the ensuing WeCanRuleTogether fails, he is stuck with a completely unfamiliar and weak ability instead of the EleventhHourSuperpower he was hoping for. If Eugene hadn't shown up with some Blast Cores, Delsin would have been screwed.]]

* Happens to Aang of all people in the season 2 finale of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender.'' While powering up into his [[SuperMode Avatar State]], [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Azula takes the opportunity to shoot him in the back with lightning.]] Normally, this would just be a subversion of TransformationIsAFreeAction, but it exploited the Avatar State's only weakness: dying in that form ''ends'' the Avatar's cycle of reincarnation. If Katara hadn't been there to revive Aang with some magic water, he would have died/stayed dead and the Avatar would ''never'' have returned, cementing the Fire Nation's control over the world indefinitely (at least until the world tore itself apart with no Avatar to keep things in balance).

* The final BigBad of the original ''Series/Ultraman'' TV show is Alien Zetton and his kaiju, Zetton. Alien Zetton gets shot by the SSSP, and he releases Zetton shortly before dying. Zetton then proceeds to engage in a CurbstompBattle with Ultraman (and kills him), but he gets blown up by an experimental weapon the SSSP had just finished developing.

* In the final episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'', [[TheStarscream Cedric]] [[spoiler:''eats'' [[BigBad Phobos]], allowing him to absorb both Phobos's own magic and the stolen powers Phobos (and before him, Nerissa) had been collecting across the season. This allows Cedric to transform into a nearly all-powerful version of his ScaledUp OneWingedAngel form -- but he still goes down quickly, because the heroines have ''better' OneWingedAngel forms, and Cedric [[HowDoIShotWeb didn't quite know how to utilize his newfound powers]] properly]].
