* [[spoiler:The final battle against Nyx]] in ''{{Persona 3}}'' is completely scripted; barring one or two swipes at the boss that makes no difference, you have a predetermined response to the boss' attacks round by round and win automatically on your fourth action when you're forced to activate the CombinedEnergyAttack.

* In an animated example, Kirito in [[Anime/SwordArtOnline Sword Art Online]] is really, really, ''really'' good at the game. So good, in fact, that his stats are high enough that he cannot lose most battles he enters, highlighted by SAO Abridged's take on Kirito vs. Titan's Hand.

--> '''Kirito:''' There's just one thing you didn't account for. My numbers- ''displays his level onscreen'' -are bigger than yours! Funny thing, really. Get to a high enough level, and you're basically untouchable. My wounds heal ''faster'' than you can make them. We could do this ''all'' day, and you would not be any closer to beating me- not that it wouldn't be fun. But I've got good news! See, there's no need to wonder where your God is! Because he's right here! '''And he's fresh out of mercy.'''

* Can be [[InvokedTrope invoked]] in most sports games, such as ''VideoGame/FIFASoccer'', by players entering the game as one team, but then switching to the ''other'' team either pre- or mid-match and intentionally scoring own goals.

Added DiffLines:

* While ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' has dozens if not hundreds of [[GameBreaker game-breaking combinations of items]], you do still need to put effort in and, if you play poorly enough, you can still die. And then there's the combination of the Smelter and the Missing Poster. The Smelter adds a Trinket's effect to your character permanently. The Missing Poster is supposed to revive you as [[JokeCharacter The Lost]] once and then be destroyed. However, when added to your character, it ''never breaks,'' [[MagikarpPower turning the weakest character in the game into an unstoppable wraith with infinite lives.]]

** It's impossible to lose the first fight in ''[[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door]]'' against Lord Crump, as you can only attack (doing so a maximum of 5 times defeats Lord Crump, while Lord Crump has 5 HP, an attack power of 1 and Mario has 10 HP) or Defend (which makes Lord Crump do no damage at all). This particular fight has no luck element to it at all. It isn't even possible to lose if you whittle down your HP before the match by jumping into the water, as [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything your HP will automatically be reset to 5 when you enter the battle]].

* During the InevitableTournament in ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'', one of your opponents is Dan, a young boy who blames you for the destruction of the DoomedHometown. Compared to other fighters in the tournament, he's effortless to beat. If you're feeling charitable, however, you can also simply defend and heal, and he'll eventually forfeit the match and give you an [[LostForever unique]], [[GuideDangIt surprisingly strong piece of armor]].

** In addition to that, if you push the opposing truck across the finish line by ramming it from behind, the game doesn't acknowledge it and you still win.

* All of ''VideoGame/WarioLand 3'' [[spoiler:except the final boss]] is impossible to die, all damage simply knocks you back to a different part of the level. It doesn't matter how often Wario gets hit, he just bounces back.
** It's the same idea with ''Wario Land 2'', but he does lose coins when he gets hit in that game, so that probably counts as "losing" (or rather, winning less), because Wario is greedy by nature. It's impossible to get a Game Over in this game, however.

* Once you've made it to the final stage of ''VideoGame/AfterBurner Climax'' and are tasked with destroying the three nuclear warheads, you've basically already won the game. Even if you fail to shoot them down, the carrier that the missles are aimed at will shoot them down with only light damaged sustained and you'll still get one of the "enemy unconditionally surrenders" endings.
