* The end of the first stage of ''VideoGame/SpidermanMaximumCarnage" you'll fight a GiantMook. Beat him, and then 2 Big Mooks, and then 4. The 4th one will have maximum hp, but it can be whittled down. If you win, you'll get the same event as if you lost, with Cloak and Dagger rescuing Spiderman.

** The primary antagonist of the Stormblood expansion, Zenos yae Galvus, gives the player multiple [[HopelessBossFight Hopeless Boss Fights]] during the 4.0 main scenario quests. The only way to "win" is to survive long enough for him to resort to his ultimate attack. [[spoiler:Even the final battle with him in Ala Mhigo at the very end of the expansion isn't much easier.]]

* The flash game ''VideoGame/RPGShooterStarwish'' has the introduction level. You face against some easy cannon fodder Mooks... then you come across the Firebolt. This thing spams bullets and very damaging, hard-to-avoid lasers, and while you ''can'' beat it (doing so gets you a different cutscene and an achievement), it's very hard to do so and you'll probably go down.

* In ''VideoGame/JediKnightII:JediOutcast'' your first fight against [[TheReptilians overgrown Kowakian monkey-lizard]] [[BigBad Desann]] is this.

* In ''FireEmblem'', Captain Fargus challenges your group to see if they're worthy of being given passage to the Dread Island. If you select "Attack" instead of "Talk" when you ''do'' reach him, he will fight the character you used to challenge him. Since he's a promoted class as well as extremely powerful yeah, you can guess the outcome.
** If you manage to actually defeat him, it will result in a NonstandardGameOver, since [[NiceJobBreakingItHero you just killed the only person with a boat to take you to Dread Isle]] ''and'' was willing to take you there. If you attack him at all, it will also result in a NonstandardGameOver on the next turn.
** Valter in the beginning of ''Sacred Stones'' is completely unbeatable, as was demonstrated on youtube to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4-0KoXEQ-k&feature=channel_page comedic]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXecE5XXnTo&feature=channel_page effect]].
** The Invincible Black Knight in ''Path of Radiance'' shows up in an earlier mission when you are expected to not even have a promoted unit yet. Your goal of the mission is to escape the town by sea and if any, and I do mean ANY, character attempts to hold the Black Knight off...Well, they had a good run.
*** ''Radiant Dawn'' does something similar where [[spoiler: the NotQuiteDead Black Knight]] is on the opposing side of the field in Part 3. Fortunately, he doesn't move until about 2 turns before the battle ends, which means he's no threat unless you deliberately step into his attack range. However, it does offer you an interesting reward for challenging him; if Ike has a battle with him and survives (which requires a ''very'' high level at that part of the game), [[spoiler: Chancellor Sephiran is playable for the FinalBoss]].
*** To make things more interesting, if you equip a strong enough unit with the hammer -- a weapon strong against armored units -- it's actually possible to KILL the knight (he's coded with the hammer weakness, even though he's only supposed to be vulnerable to certain blessed swords and magic.) Doing this disqualifies you for the reward though, and [[NotQuiteDead he's not really dead anyways.]]

** ''VideoGame/JediKnightIIJediOutcast'' gives another example. Justified in that, alas, he has Force powers and you do not. The justification is even better than it sounds, because theoretically he has an unbeatable counter to any kind of attack you use. Blasters and energy weapons? Deflected by lightsaber. Thrown explosives? Force Pushed back. So it's not likely the player will even get the chance to verify he's invulnerable as well. Of course, if you happened to be less than skilled and used a cheat code to make yourself invincible, the game becomes unwinnable, since neither side can die.
