** This trope is averted in ''The Avengers'' sequel, ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''. Iron Man, now wearing a special suit designed to fight the Hulk, actually manages to beat him in a pretty brutal match. Meanwhile, Scarlet Witch manages to MindRape the entire team at one point or another, with the exception of Hawkeye, who is immune to her powers and has her captive. Quicksilver beats Hawkeye twice with the element of surprise, but Hawkeye beats him using surprise in their third encounter.

* ''WebOriginal/DragonBallZAbridged'': During the Cell arc, several videos featured the protagonists of other series showing up to battle Cell, including [[WebOriginal/YuGiOhAbridged Yami]] ([[spoiler:Cell managed to RulesLawyer him into RageQuitting]]) and [[Anime/FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro]] ([[spoiler:His Hokuto Hyakuretsuken managed to wipe the smug off Cell's face, but he regenerated]]). Then [[Manga/OnePunchMan Saitama and Genos]] show up. Genos goes first, [[TheWorfEffect and you can guess how that goes]], and as [[ComicallyInvincibleHero Saitama]] steps up, Cell makes the mistake of saying when the tournament takes place, prompting Saitama to realize there's a sale on that day, meaning he won't be able to make it to the fight, so he picks up Genos and leaves.

* {{ComicBook/Deadpool}} once got into a YoMomma fight with Spider-Man, and as he was building up to the ultimate zinger that would leave Spidey completely crushed, he left, claiming he'd achieved his goal of distracting him.

* In season 14 of ''Series/NCIS'', the two "alpha"-type characters, Torres and Reeves finally acknowledged their overlapping skills, rivalry and mutual respect by arm wrestling - to the [[ParentingTheHusband derision of the female agents]] - however, the contest was aborted, unresolved, by the intrusion of a case and their assignments.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhTheDarkSideOfDimensions'', Yugi and Kaiba's duel is inconclusive, with Yugi apparently wiping him out, Kaiba somehow hanging on, and Aigami interrupting it before it can conclude. [[spoiler:The movie also ends just before Kaiba and Atem duel.]]

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhTheDarkSideOfDimensions'', Yugi and Kaiba's duel is inconclusive, with actually conclusive, as, by doing the math, Yugi apparently wiping him out, does wipe out his lifepoints, and Kaiba does not activate his facedown. Kaiba however, somehow hanging on, hangs on to 100 of his lifepoints (which may be due to the fact that the power goes out as soon as his counter reaches that number), and Aigami interrupting interrupts it before it can conclude. be followed up on.

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'':
%%** Averted when Barry finally comes face-to-face with the Man in the Yellow Suit: the latter proves himself to be ''much'' faster and better than Barry, thoroughly trouncing the Flash in both the encounters of that episode. The only reason Barry survives the second encounter is the arrival of Firestorm ([[spoiler:then again, it's doubtful that Wells actually meant to kill him]]). Barry spends the next several episodes working on building up his speed for their next encounter. Also, in later encounters, Barry manages to defeat the Reverse-Flash either with the help of allies, by being faster ([[spoiler:ironically, with Thawne's own help]]), or by gaining enough knowledge of his opponent to best him.
** Played straight in the ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' crossover. When Oliver has to fight a HatePlague-influenced Barry, the latter is cured before there's a clear winner. The episode ends with them just starting a friendly rematch. A later crossover states that Barry won the rematch, but Oliver jokes that since there were [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall no witnesses to the fight]], Barry doesn't have the evidence to back that claim.
%%** Also averted with Zoom in the second season, who is even faster than the Reverse-Flash and who utterly destroys Barry during their first fight. [[spoiler:In the season finale, Barry finally manages to defeat Zoom, although, in the process, he ends up creating the Black Racer]].
** During the "Invasion!" crossover, the Flash has to go up against a BrainwashedAndCrazy Series/{{Supergirl|2015}}. Barry doesn't actively try to ''fight'' Supergirl; instead he tries to avoid her as best he can and, like with the earlier fight with Oliver, Barry deals with her by breaking the brainwashing. The fight does show that while Supergirl is a {{Physical God}}dess who can NoSell the Flash's Speed Force lightning (his only major offensive move) and whose speed can match his, the Flash is better at using that speed to react, change course, and dodge her attacks. It's also possible that he was specifically holding back his speed so she ''could'' keep up, as he was luring her to a specific location.

** Averted in the Season 14 crossover with ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'' -- which finally pits Carolina and the Meta together. They spend most of the fight more or less equally matched, but ultimately Carolina wins, due to her ability to work well with Church as her AI. The episode LampShades the BrokenBase nature of this trope by having Griff refuse to accept the result of the "simulation". (And of course, some of the commentators on the Website/YouTube video themselves are rejecting the outcome.)
