** In the Literature/BookOfJudgess, the men of the plains defeat the men of Judah in battle despite the latter being supported by God Himself. Those iron chariots are pretty dangerous, eh?

* Literature/TheBible: In the Literature/BookOfGenesis, Jacob wrestled with an angel. After a long stalemate, his opponent realized that [[TheDeterminator he would not give up]] and touched Jacob's hip, dislocating it. For this, Jacob gains the new name "Israel" ("Struggled/Persevered-With-God") as a reward for his stubbornness. Also, because of the way in which the angel defeated Jacob, observant Jews do not eat the sciatic nerve. Since the sciatic nerve is remarkably difficult to remove, most Jews simply did not eat the hindquarters of the animal, selling it to their Gentile neighbors instead.

In reality, it was probably a SecretTestOfCharacter (given that God knows everything), but still impressive (his distant ancestor Abraham tried to do the same thing, asking God to not destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, where Abraham's nephew Lot lived, if 50 righteous people lived in the city, and then managed to bargain God down to ten; in the end, only Lot and his two daughters made it out alive, and his wife was turned into a salt pillar for looking back at Sodom when they're told not to).
** In the Literature/BookOfJudges, even God's support is not enough to allow the men of Judah to defeat the people of the valley and their iron chariots.

And then along come a fellowship of plucky heroic badasses, [[AchievementsInIgnorance who were never told that the Abomination is impossible to beat]] (and even if they were told, [[NeverTellMeTheOdds they wouldn't care]].) Through some combination of skill, brains, courage, HeroicSpirit, and occasionally raw world-shattering AwesomenessIsAForce, maybe some kind of incredibly clever strategy, maybe trap, maybe AppliedPhlebotinum and/or sheer dumb luck, or hey, WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer, they go to work and... they ''defeat'' the abomination.

** Herakles also beat Ares in a straight-up fight (not that this is impressive, for being the god of war he's pretty much a sissy), and later on fought Apollo over a temple and managed to stand on even ground with him, and Herakles didn't have anyone backing him up for that fight. He also intimidated Charon into helping him and almost shot Helios out of the sky until the sun charioteer gave him a boat. This in addition to all the monsters he took out. [[{{JustifiedTrope}} It's not surprising though]], he was pretty much bred to beat the hell out of things that other mortals couldn't.
