* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'' is a rare case where the villains intentionally invoke this trope. Cassius Bright, the protagonist's father, is considered an in-universe MemeticBadass and StoryBreakerPower. So before the villains set their plan in motion, they lure Cassius out of the country, as they know that if he was around he'd [[CurbStompBattle Curb-Stomp]] them effortlessly.

** Subverted in "In Darkest Night, Part I", which very conspicuously pointed out that Supes was busy with an earthquake in India...only to have him show up halfway through the episode anyway. He mentions that he finished early because the earthquake was "[[CriticalResearchFailure only a 4 on the Richter Scale]]".

* In the ''ComicBook/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' prequel comic, Captain Atom and Martian Manhunter are members of LaResistance led by Batman against Superman's Regime and they are among the few superheroes capable of taking him on equal ground. They don't make out alive of Year One, rendering the Insurgency struggle even more difficult since they are reduced to {{badass normal}}s and street-level superheroes.

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', [[spoiler:Mirio]], a character who could very reasonably stand in the way of [[spoiler:Deku achieving the narratively predestined endpoint of being the number one hero, gets his ability taken away permanently by way of a special type of bullet that's meant to be eliminated permanently]] at the end of the same arc.

** Also, Pein's invasion occurred after Jiraiya's death, and Tsunade was in a coma. Either one of those two aiding Naruto during the fight would have drastically altered the fight's progression.
** Possibly invoked when [[spoiler: Sasuke announces his plans to take over the world. He's savvy enough to wait until after the resurrected Hokage are returned to the afterlife, so that they can't all team up and curb-stomp him.]]

** ''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.
