** Beerus. He is a god among gods and nothing is really known about him. It's implied that Beerus could have been a mortal at one point given that Whis offers Goku the job of God of Destruction once Beerus dies. It's later confirmed he is a mortal, just like every other God of Destruction.

* ''{{OFF}}'' leaves a lot of things about many of the characters in the game mysterious, but Zacharie is easily the most mysterious of them all. He's [[MetaGuy completely aware that he's in a video game,]] and the player eventually finds out that he owns the amusement park in Zone 2 (and a book can be found in the same zone about a hero slaying a monster, with the hero somewhat implied to be Zacharie.) He's rubbed shoulders with a lot of characters, including the Judge (who he's on a first name basis with and is even willing to take over for him for a while when [[spoiler: he's grieving over the loss of his brother]],) Hugo (who has taken a huge liking to him in the past) and BonusBoss Sugar. There's also no explanation given as to why he's willing to repeatedly sell things to the Batter [[spoiler: when he's planning to basically destroy the world.]]

** Goku's father, Bardock. Despite being born and classified as a lower class Saiyan, he has a power level around 10,000 before he died. For reference, Goku didn't get that high until he trained with King Kai and he was still only around 8 to 9,000 without the Kaioken. That also makes him much stronger than Nappa, an elite solider. In fact, he's about as strong as King Vegeta. It can be explained to an extent by Bardock frequently returning from missions on the brink of death, and receiving zenkais[[note]]the Saiyan race's ability to grow stronger after recovering from near-fatal injuries[[/note]] from it.

** Whis, Beerus' assistance, is even worse. He isn't a god as far as we know, but [[spoiler: he's stronger than Beerus and have the power to rewind time for the entire universe]]. When Vegeta asks exactly what Whis is, he's given a non-answer. However, [[spoiler: we learn from U7's Supreme Kai that he's a type of angel who looks over the God of Destruction]].

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' had the [[ImplacableMan Guardian]], a extremely powerful warrior tasked with protecting a time portal from anyone who wants to use it. What exactly he is and where he came from is one of the show's biggest mysteries: he looks like a large blue humanoid dressed in a [[BadassLongcoat long coat]] with superhuman strength and is capable of withstanding the impact of missiles. He also packs some serious heat in the form of machine guns and rocket launchers alongside swords and spears, and at one point he eats a ''metal shield''. Whether he is an alien, a demigod or whatever created him and made him guard the portal is never clarified, but he has done his duty for countless eons and defeated anyone who wished to use the portal. The Guardian is also one of the most powerful beings in the setting, holding the distinction of being one of the very few to have defeated [[TheHero Jack]] [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter in single combat]].

* Saitama of ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan''. There is no logical explanation for how he obtained his godlike strength. Saitama himself chalks it up to his training regimen... which isn't TrainingFromHell, but just a moderately difficult, realistically plausible, strength training regimen[[note]]Each day: 100 sit-ups, 100 push-ups, 100 squats, and a 10 km run[[/note]], so there's no way he could have become so strong just from that. Many characters {{Lampshade}} this, and believe that Saitama has some other secret he isn't telling anybody, but it's suggested that even Saitama doesn't really know how he got so strong.

* Sans from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is, at a glance, a skeleton in a blue hoodie, sports shorts and slippers who would rather lounge around, make silly jokes and hang out with his friends at the local monster bar and restaurant than try to capture the Human Child. Despite this, [[spoiler:he's the single weakest monster in the Underground that nevertheless displays a level of skill that blows the established cast out of the water with [[GenreSavvy creative tactics]], and if you try to kill everyone, he ''will'' [[ThatOneBoss give you a bad time]].]] Combined with the fact that [[spoiler:he's thwarted Flowey's plans more than once, demonstrates the ability to teleport and has knowledge of various resets, there's a broken-down time machine hidden in his bedroom, his Gaster Blasters are named after an even more mysterious character who seems to have disappeared and been temporally scattered across space and time, he seems to be aware of the game mechanics and the save system]], coupled with the fact that a red substance that's probably blood comes out of him when he dies and not turned to dust like all established monsters, and an awful lot of fans are left convinced that Sans [[AmbiguouslyHuman isn't even actually a monster at all]]. One thing's for certain, though: whatever his story is, there's a lot more to it than what's shown in the game.

* Stewie Griffin in ''WesternAnimation/{{Family Guy}}'' is a one year old who has successfully built a Time Machine, a machine to control the world's weather, mind control devices, and transmat pods, created human clones on more than one occasion, and travelled to parallel universes, among other things. No explanation is given for his super intelligence, nor how his entire family (aside from Brian) are completely oblivious to what Stewie is up to all the time.
* Pinkie Pie in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' regularly [[BreakingTheFourthWall ignores]], [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall leans on]] or [[FourthWallObserver stares at]] the fourth wall, [[ToonPhysics defies the laws of physics]] [[MagicAIsMagicA and magic]] whenever plot or [[RuleOfFunny humour]] convenient, and [[ThatRemindsMeOfASong launches into musicals]] when no one else does. She's popped out of locations too small for her to fit, appeared inside of mirrors, and even fought the [[IrisOut closing circle]] at the end of the episode. While this itself isn't unusual for a cartoon, ''she's the only one'', and everyone else is well aware that Pinkie Pie doesn't really work with the same rules as anyone else, and just do their best to ignore the weirdness. Her strange actions drive the plot in several episodes. Twilight actually ''tried'' to figure out one of her nonsensical abilities, and ended up being so frustrated she gave up trying. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E5MagicDuel Magic Duel]]'', Pinkie Pie loses her mouth and is later made to play several instruments at once, including a tuba, by Twilight. When asked how she could play a tuba with no mouth, Twilight responds "That wasn't magic. That was just Pinkie Pie."
