* 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.

** In the timeline Future Trunks came from, Goku got permanently written out by contracting a heart virus that killed him. The Dragon Balls cannot reverse a natural death or one caused by disease. His absence led to the BadFuture.
** The Garlic Jr Saga, the only filler saga in the entire series, takes place while Goku is away from Earth. Vegeta also leaves to look for Goku, leaving Piccolo, Gohan, Krillin, Mr. Popo, and Kami to deal with Garlic's return. If Goku was around, he would have dealt with Garlic without any issue or been corrupted by the Black Water Mist and be close to unstoppable since ''no'' character at that point in the series could stand against a Super Saiyan. Vegeta would have the same issue to a lesser extent since his power is second only to Goku's.
** In fact, ''Dragon Ball Z'' distinguishes itself for having multiple tiers of the trope - a really long fight will probably start with [[OvershadowedByAwesome Yamcha or Krillin]], then bring in TheWorfBarrage of Tenshinhan/Piccolo/Trunks/Vegeta, and finally let Goku or Gohan show up to finish things...and at least one fight (versus Cell) takes this even further, for a grand total of eight fighters in sequence facing off against him in a row, without any other villains participating. Naturally there were very good, impressively coincidental reasons they couldn't all have attacked at once.

** This is also the same reason why Gohan, Goten, and Trunks were killed by Buu when he destroyed the Earth while they were still unconscious. This is lampshaded as Goku suggests bringing them to help to destroy Buu after they are revived, but Vegeta refuses [[HonorBeforeReason because he wants the people of Earth to protect themselves for once.]]
