* In ''[[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy2015 Dissidia Final Fantasy NT]]'', [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]]'s playstyle is based around relentlessly chasing down his opponents. He can dash-cancel many of his attacks, and his EX Skill, JENOVA, slows down nearby opponents, making them easier to pursue.

* The 1971 film ''Film/{{Duel}}'', an early Creator/StevenSpielberg-directed movie starring Dennis Weaver as businessman David Mann traveling along a desert highway when he is stalked by a mysterious tanker truck, who seems to have no driver. [[note]]The truck was actually driven by Carey Loftin, a legendary Hollywood stunt driver. In the few scenes where a driver can be discerned, Loftin's face is not seen.[[/note]] No matter what Mann does to elude and shake his antagnonist, the truck is always on his tail, at times speeding well above the speed limit or at a speed that is reasonably safe or what the car -- a 1970 Plymouth Valiant sedan, presumably with the basic 6-cylinder engine -- can endure, the driver (or the truck-with-a-mind-of-its-own(?) itself) seeming to want to brutally kill him for some unknown reason. In the end, just as Mann's car is about to break down and all hope seems lost, Mann finally is able to stage an accident at the edge of a cliff, and the truck -- which heretofore had seemingly been smarter than Mann -- falls for the trick, plunging over the side to its doom.

* Definitely fitting the description on later difficulties is the Tank from ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'', which can survive clips upon clips of high-powered rifle and shotgun rounds and complete immolation for upwards of a minute. Combined with how hard he swings, he is NightmareFuel.

** The "Slasher" supplement brings us the Mask. Built for murder and only murder, these mindless killing machines can take a pistol clip to put down (if you're ''lucky''), and never need to sleep or eat.

* Another bulletproof Russian (Uzbekistani) appears in the movie ''Film/{{Snatch}}'', and hilarity ensues. Even when not dodging bullets, he manages to survive being hit directly by a car travelling at high speed with no real injury, then taking almost a full clip from a desert eagle at the hands of Bullet-Tooth Tony, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny all while yelling "fuck you!" with each bullet that Tony puts in him.]] It's heavily implied by his tenacity that he would have survived if the frustrated Tony hadn't used his last bullet for a well-aimed [[BoomHeadShot headshot]].

* ''{{VideoGame/Xenogears}}'' has Rasmus. The guy's been blown up, had his HumongousMecha thrashed repeatedly, and nearly drowned. Yet all of that doesn't stop him from trying to fight his rival [[LetsPlay/TheDarkId FEEEEEEEIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!]]

* The {{Infocom}} InteractiveFiction game ''VideoGame/LeatherGoddessesOfPhobos'' has your henchman Trent (or, depending on a choice you make early in the game, Tiffany), who continuously dies in very unlikely ways and pops up again a few dozen moves later with an even more unlikely explanation for how he/she survived.

* Literature/ConanTheBarbarian in Creator/RobertEHoward's ''Literature/TheHourOfTheDragon'' when he's after the Heart of Ahriman. All right, he has to quell one LeaveTheQuestTest when he thinks of less complicated adventures with lower stakes, but only one.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline'', BigBad [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] [[TheCorrupter Molag]] [[GodOfEvil Bal]] creates an implacable BadassArmy out of the Xivkyn, a form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] Bal created by combing the [[GiantMook massive]] and [[EliteMooks powerful]] but unruly and [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder untrustworthy]] Xivilai with the ProudWarriorRace LegionsOfHell Dremora (who refer to themselves as the "Kyn" in the Daedric language). The result is an implacable fighting force which very nearly takes over Mundus.
