* In ''Videogame/{{Starcraft}}'', the Deflier's Plague attack is an example of this: it is a powerful area attack but will never kill an enemy, only reduce their hit points to a minimum of 1. Subverted if you use it on Terran buildings, however, as if these are damaged into the red they automatically continue to deteriorate and eventually explode even if no further attack is made on them.

* In ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' BonusBoss [[spoiler:[[FallenAngel Father Rodin]]]] has a move that does this where he charges forth and pulverises you, doubling as a ShoutOut to Akuma's [[SignatureMove Raging Demon]] from ''Franchise/StreetFighter''. Better hope he doesn't pull this one out too early, since [[NoItemUseForYou you can't heal in this fight]].

* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'': Alarak can do with to ''[[PowerAtAPrice himself]]'' with a level 20 talent. More specifically, the talent lets him teleport a sizable distance and clear any status effects, but automatically sets him to 1 HP. He can use it to escape from basically any situation, but smart opponents can figure out where he might have blinked to and instantly pop him.

* ''Videogame/DefenseOfTheAncients'' Venomancer's Poison Nova, which deals an absurd amount of damage over time but can't drop an enemy's health below 1. Unfortunately for them, the rest of his kit deals damage over time which ''can'' kill the victim.

* ''Videogame/DefenseOfTheAncients'' has Doom and Poison Nova which technically do not do this but deal so much damage over time that they might as well. To counter this, finish the battle quickly and then heal.

** Prior to Generation V, poisoned Pokémon in the player's party would lose health for every few steps taken outside of battle. In Generation IV, a Pokémon brought down to 1 HP by poison outside of battle would be cured of poison; previous generations had the Pokémon faint instead.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' has Galgalim Eyes, which reduce the victim's HP to 1 and inflict them with the Enervation status. The FinalBoss often follows up on this with Summons To Yomi, which kills anyone with a status ailment.



** The very first attack in the game is one of these.

* Old MMO Lineage 2 had a downplayed version of this called Seal of Limit, an area-of-effect spell that hard caps affected target's HP at 30%. It is ridiculously spammable and being a hard counter to Balance Life, the single best healing spell in the game.

** The Generation 2 move "False Swipe" is an ordinary attack (similar to "Scratch"), but features the added effect that it will never reduce the opponent to zero HP. It is useful primarily for weakening wild Pokémon so they can be more easily caught, but can't save them from themselves (self-damaging moves).
