** Alistair Overeem is widely regarded as one of the hardest hitters in an already hard-hitting UFC Heavyweight Division, and has also been the victim of some classic knockouts due to the fact that physically, he simply cannot absorb as much damage as other heavyweight mixed martial artists can. It's gotten to the point where Overeem will actually turn his back on his opponent and ''run away'' in the octagon if he feels overwhelmed[[note]]he's done this in two separate fights; vs. Stipe Miocic at UFC 203, and vs. Mark Hunt at UFC 209[[/note]], which is an extremely rare strategy in professional MMA, much less the UFC (the consensus highest-level MMA promotion).

* ''TabletopGame/StarsWars:Battlefront'': Han Solo is a glass cannon. He carries his most powerful pistol in the galaxy the DL-44 Blaster Pistol. He can overpower his enemies in great distances. He has three outstanding output ablitites: 1) Rapid Fire: A long range ability to let him rapidly fire repeatedly without over heating against group of enemies. 2) Lucky Shot: A long ranged charge up blaster so powerful it can break Darth Vader lightsaber blocks and it can lock on soldiers and vehicles. It can lock and take out a group of Imperial starfighters in a single shot. 3) Shoulder Charge: A short-ranged ability let Han Solo to lower his shoulder into his enemy to apply damage. It only works in line of sight. Han Solo defense is terrible. His hit points will drop faster than you can say "Oh S***!" He can't handle in a melee. He is doomed if surrounded by a group of Imperial soldiers and Galactic Heroes. The only way to avoid short melee is activate shoulder charge for a great escape.
* ''TabletopGames/Wizard101'': Storm wizards in wizard 101 has tremendous single and area of effect attack spells. But their hp and defense is terribly low.

* In ''TabletopGame/XWingMiniatures'', the TIE Phantom has a ''massive'' four-die main attack, the ''only'' ship in its size class with such a statistic, and can take the potent Crew and System upgrades. On the other hand, when uncloaked, it is no more durable than a humble Z-95 that costs considerably less. The dominant Phantom build, when Phantoms are run at all, is specced around getting to a high Pilot skill, taking an upgrade that lets you cloak after attacking, and praying that you get initiative so you can get that precious +2 Agility to make you die slightly slower.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' has most of the Inhumans, at least the ones relevant to the series. Most of them only gain one power, and while that power tends to be ''very'' useful, they generally lack anything else to protect them. In particular, the series' lead Daisy Johnson has a power that is comparable to the Hulk in terms of damage she can dish out, but excessive use of it can injure her and beyond that she's a rather short woman who, while exceptionally combat trained and more resilient than most, can still be overpowered and outmatched by stronger combatants or numbers. As a result of this, he Inhumans that avoid this status, such as Hive and Lash (who both have a ''very'' wide array of powers that include super-fast healing factors and/or invulnerability), are treated as pants-shittingly terrifying as a result, while Joey, who's power to control matter makes him both bullet proof (bullets just melt) ''and'' useful in combat situations, is a StoryBreakerPower who got PutOnTheBus to avoid him being able to solve most problems.

* Between the five colors, red is the one that most exhibits this trope. Most mono-red creatures tend to have very low toughness, but higher power. Since red is more about dealing as much damage to its opponent as quickly as possible, its creatures don't need to survive, just take a few cheap shots in.

*** [[Creator/StephenCurry]] is this, to a lesser extent. He's an [[ImprobableAimingSkills excellent shooter]] and a solid passer, but his defense is just mediocre to average. This is slightly mitigated by the fact that he has defensively skilled teammates (e.g. Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala) and that he actually ''tries'' to play defense; contrast that to Harden, who seems like he '''[[BrilliantButLazy doesn't even try]] to play defense!'''

** '''Cristiano Ronaldo'''. He may be one of the top forwards in football right now, but he's been accused of not running back to help the defense when his team loses the ball. He may be excused for this due to the fact that his usual position (Left Wing) doesn't really call for players to run back on D (Unless they're playing a 4-2-3-1, 3-5-2, or a 4-5-1 formation), and that he's just extremely good. Nevertheless, some individuals have called him out for his lack of effort on defense, most notably his former manager Jose Mourinho.

** James Harden is one of the best offensive players in the NBA, and his shooting skill has led to some branding him the best Shooting Guard in the NBA since Kobe Bryant retired. Unfortunately, his defense is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMKavKEKX2Q memetically horrible]].

** The Chaos Forgefiend with three ectoplasma cannons is capable of tearing through heavily armoured elite forces in seconds - its blasts can disintegrate entire squads of Grey Knight Terminators. However, those same cannons are prone to overheating and damaging its hull, which is comparatively fragile at 3 Hull Points for a 200 point unit.
