** ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'' has Sieglinde Jeremiah, a tournament veteran who had never been defeated in battle, and whose single loss was due to her not appearing for her match. [[spoiler:Einhart]] gets a shot at breaking her streak [[spoiler:and eventually fails.]]
** Subverted in ''Anime/VividStrike''. Rinne Berlinetta was originally set up like this, only for it to be revealed that Vivio has already beaten her in the past. That said, Rinne's only lost was in points and she hadn't been defeated via knockout yet [[spoiler:until her second loss to Vivio]].

* The "Miracle of Berne" (4 July, 1954) in which the West German team came back from trailing 0-2 against the "Magical Magyars" to win [[TheWorldCup the FIFA World Cup]] by 3 goals to 2. This ended an undefeated run by the Hungarian [[UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball football (soccer)]] team lasting four years and 32 matches, during which they won the Olympic gold medal in 1952, the 1953 European Cup of National Teams (precursor of the UEFA European Championship), became the first continental European team to defeat England in Wembley Stadium (by 6-3) and defeated West Germany by 8-3 in the opening round of the 1954 World Cup.

*** Wrestling/SamoaJoe's twenty one month reign as Wrestling/RingOfHonor Champion where he traveled around in between his obligated ROH dates challenging anyone to try and take to the belt so he could use their defeats to justify calling it a world title. He was eventually toppled by Wrestling/AustinAries of Generation Next. Joe would later go on a much less dramatic 18 month undefeated streak that nonetheless produced Wrestling/{{TNA}} most financially successful program ever when it was broken by Wrestling/KurtAngle.

** The first match Wrestling/MsChif's best known for her two year reign with both the Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA World Women's and Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} Title belts. Particularly when Madison Eagles beating her for the latter resulted in Eagles being the first woman not working for a major ''and'' the first not based in North America to place on top of Pro Wrestling Illustrated's top fifty.

* A folk tale or legend is used by the trainer of Warders in the ''Literature/WheelOfTime'', as a warning not to get cocky. He asks his class who the greatest swordsman of all time was. They all respond immediately and in unison. He then asks who handed him his only defeat. They are silent. "A farmer with a quarterstaff!" This particular lesson was delivered after Mat Cauthon, a farmer with a quarterstaff, had just defeated Gawyn and Galad, two of the best students in the group. At the same time. While recovering from an injury.

* Happens again with UsefulNotes/LebronJames, who was the star of the 2013 Miami Heat team, when he went back to the Cleveland Cavaliers and reached the finals in the 2015-16 season. This time he took on the Golden State Warriors in the finals after losing to them the previous year during the 2014-15 season. The Warriors seem like the new superstar team in the West Coast, after the Spurs and the Lakers, to win multiple back to back titles and become a dynasty. The team's roster was stacked with great starter and bench players, with a superstar point guard in Creator/StephenCurry, who's ball handling and shooting skills seemed inhuman. Everything seemed to good as planned with the Warriors taking a dominating 3-0 lead. Everyone was predicting a NBA finals sweep, until Lebron James and his point guard Kyrie Ervin played some of the greatest basketball in NBA history, especially Ervin who while good, wasn't seen at the time as an elite player. They would be the first team in NBA history to win 4 straight games after trailing 0-3 during a championship finals, finally winning the title Lebron James promised the city of Cleveland since he turned pro as a teenager.

*** This trope was particularly noticeable in 80s WWF, where every new big bad {{heel}} destroyed everyone in his path until they finally got a shot at Wrestling/HulkHogan who took them down with his {{Five Moves Of Doom}}. Hercules Hernandez, Wrestling/KingKongBundy, and [[Film/NoHoldsBarred Zeus]] come to mind, but there were definitely others.

*** Eve with the loss, defeating the Undertaker was at 'Mania was still considered to be a big deal. 'Taker continued to win two more times at the showcase of the immortals until Wrestlemania XXXIII when he lost to Wrestling/RomanReigns in what seems to be his retirement match.
