* In ''VideoGame/KirbyStarAllies'', [[BigBad Hyness]] will summon his three defeated and unconscious minions to use them as weapons/shields after he gets roughed up, though after placing some manner of protective enchantment on them that makes Kirby's attacks glance off them harmlessly. They mostly block things indirectly while Hyness throws and swings them around, but if the fight drags on long enough, he'll eventually have them form a wall and start hiding behind them, occasionally popping out to lob projectiles. However, applying enough abuse will break the formation and expose the cowardly mage to attacks.

* At the climax of the ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirlsMovie'', Mojo Jojo drags Professor Utonium back to his lair in order to use him for this purpose after realizing that the girls are quickly discovering the full, butt-kicking potential of their powers and there's no way he'll stand a chance against them. He even refers to him outloud as a "good Powerproof vest." It ends up working, as the girls are scared enough to not attack, and Mojo is able to [[spoiler:inject himself with a ton of additional Chemical X, becoming an gigantic, all-powerful beast that's more than strong enough to fight them. ]]

* The [[BodyHorror Wyrm]] [[BadBoss Master]] demon from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' can order its imp minions to position themselves in the path of incoming attacks, forcing enemies to mow through dozens of {{Mooks}} to attack the demon. Given the [[HeavenAndHell setting]] most enemies aren't likely to care about the body count, but the Wyrm Master is aiming to ''[[WeHaveReserves exhaust]]'' attackers, not guilt-trip them.
