** Gargoyles had quite a few demigods and deities, thanks to its [[FantasyKitchenSink setting]]. Some of those characters might qualify as Great Gazoos, such as Coyote. Loki did not appear, but it seems likely he would have been under consideration at some point given the wide variety of mythologies in play.

* Tom Bombadil, in ''[[LordoftheRings The Lord of the Rings]]''. Tom is so powerful that he is able to wear the One Ring and give it up freely without a thought, but spends most of his time wandering in the Old Forest and whimsically singing about himself, and is said by Gandalf to be capable of withstanding an assault by any force of the world, unless they were [[GonnaNeedMoreTrope all allied against him]]. He provides a convenient plot device to allow the hobbits to escape the Barrow Wights and take their swords (which later prove [[ChekhovsGun essential to the story]], since the swords are the only thing deadly to Nazgûl).
