** ''Vegeta'' gets the "honor" of doing this in ''Anime/BrolySecondComing''. There's zero reason as to why he didn't rush in the instant he detected Broly's ki (And he ''should'' have detected it), and at this point in the timeline, Vegeta had [[SuperMode Super Saiyan 2]], which could have trounced the pile of muscles easily (Or at least be actually helpful, as long he didn't ForgotAboutHisPowers like Gohan who didn't go beyond regular Super Saiyan).

** This trope is the entire reason why Vegetto de-fused once he entered Buu's guts. He outclassed him so much that the fight wouldn't have had ANY tension whatsoever if Vegetto finished it. Also, GT would've never happened.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' has [[spoiler:[[AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent Joker's]] mini-mission]]. The Normandy is out of commission for a few hours, and all of its systems are offline, including the [[WaveMotionGun huge cannons]] Shepard just installed and the [[HyperspeedEscape FTL]] systems. In short, the Normandy is absolutely helpless. So what does Shepard do? Leave the Normandy for the next mission. And take the [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits entire squad]] along, leaving the crew to fight for themselves for a while. WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong?

** ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' : Iron Man ALONE could have probably taken out The Vulture's entire operation. Instead, he shuns doing so, not thinking Vulture is a big enough threat for him or The Avengers.

the Avengers.
*** During the climax, when the Vulture tries to rob Stark's plane, Peter gets Ned to call Happy in order to warn him. But because Peter had been texting and calling Happy ad nauseum for two months, Happy immediately gets annoyed and hangs up before Ned can get a word in.
** In ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'', during the Battle of Wakanda, Scarlet Witch is holed up with Vision in Shuri's lab. When she finally decides enough is enough and joins the fray, she easily takes out multiple [[BuffySpeak rolling death wheels]] and many Outriders.
--->'''Okoye:''' Why was she up there all this time?!

** Since ''every'' One Piece arc ends with Luffy beating the strongest ArcVillain, this trope also happens to Zoro, who is just as strong as Luffy, to prevent him from taking Luffy's kill. Sometimes Zoro just happens to be at another place than Luffy, but it usually happens this way: Zoro gets some handicap (like a wound or missing swords) that severely halts his fighting ability. [[ICanStillFight Zoro insists to fight anyway]] and challenges the villain's [[TheDragon Dragon]] or strongest henchman. Zoro wins with lots of difficulty due to the handicap (without the handicap, he would probably win easily). Zoro is now so exhausted that he cannot handle the main villain, so it's all up to Luffy. And the one time he does fight in the Dressrosa Arc without any sort of handicaps or debilitating injuries, he wins handily, but then has to divert his attention to keeping Doflamingo's Bird Cage at bay to allow Luffy the time to defeat him.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Chapter 11 reveals the existence of [[spoiler:a Christian Pastor's still-lingering spirit]], who could help the crew with one of its more persistent problems. When Reynir tries to visit the character a second time near the end of Chapter 14, in big part because he really needs someone to talk to after the events of Chapter 13, he simply can't find her. This results in settling for talking with Onni, from whom he's supposed to keep an important piece of information, instead.

** Spike is off watching a hoofball game with Big Macintosh during the events of ''The Cutie Map'', probably because the ArcVillain of that story's main threat revolves around taking away Cutie Marks, which obviously wouldn't affect him.

* FanFic/TheNuptialverse uses Twilight's trip to the human world from ''WesternAnimation/EquestriaGirls'' as an excuse to get her out of the way of the action in ''Direction'', with the bulk of the story being about the rest of the Mane Six having to deal with the issues that arise while she's gone.

* ''WebComic/ElGoonishShive'' Beta Tedd. He was introduced as a potential villain in the beginning of the comic, but hasn't been heard of since. WordOfGod says he was introduced into the story way too early.

** Likewise with its roster of multiple Superman-style Kryptonian powerhouses, especially during the Silver Age. There were very few problems that couldn't believably be solved by Superboy and Mon-El punching it in the face, and they were usually written off on some mission of vague but vital importance to keep things manageable.
