* Dondera Tank from ''Holy Umbrella'' for the SuperFamicom is an unusual example in that your first encounter with him is a HopelessBossFight. He still returns twice after being defeated, each time with a new tank and the same old bluster. In a desperate attempt to prove he's still relevant, he sings a VillainSong and [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]].

* Out of the thousand-plus Nadir tribes alluded to in the Literature/{{Drenai}} saga, the Green Monkeys have this reputation in-universe. The name probably doesn't help.

* The Dark Hand in ''JackieChanAdventures''. Doesn't help that their formerly badass boss got canonically [[RetCon retconned]] later on. The Shadowkhan at times as well, though their effectiveness appears to depend on [[spoiler: how close the mask holder is]].

* Your rival in any of the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games, although in the original games he ends up becoming a credible threat again as the FinalBoss. In the third, fourth, and first game of the fifth generations you have ''two'' rivals, the one that's the opposite gender of the player character and another one. (It's back to one in [[PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 Black2/White2]]) The gendered rival in the third-generation games doesn't even fully evolve his/her starter and you never battle them again after about two-thirds of the way through the game. In ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY X and Y]]'' you have ''four'' Rivals, but you battle three of them only twice apiece, the main Rival being more persistent. In most cases, the Rivals are often as much allies as they are opponents.

** The [[Anime/Pokemon anime version]] of the Team Rocket trio (see below) actually apply to this trope in the video game sense in ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Yellow'', despite being ''somewhat'' more competent in said game (like they were in the show before VillainDecay set in).

* Lina Inverse from ''TheSlayers'' actually gave this nickname to Naga at one point, as she constantly insists on calling Lina her partner (or rival, depending on which season/movie you're watching).
** Martina from ''TheSlayers'' NEXT is a very obvious example. Subverted in that she winds up with some CharacterDevelopment and getting exactly what she wants at the end while Lina's still WalkingTheEarth, but then, she had stopped being a villain by that point.

A comedic version of the RecurringBoss, the Goldfish Poop Gang are characters who keep popping up, requiring you to fight them multiple times through the game. They [[VillainDecay quickly devolve]] from being [[QuirkyMinibossSquad actual threats]] to [[GoddamnedBats pesky nuisances]], something the party may [[LampshadeHanging comment on]].
