* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** The Black Magician Zeref, the first of the series BigBadEnsemble, is a widely feared mage for god reason. The man has CompleteImmortality that prevents him from being hurt, or even killed, by anyone or anything (and Zeref's [[DeathSeeker been trying for centuries]]). On top of that he has the power to control death magic which, at it's most unstable, can create a InstantDeathRadius sphere which automatically kills anything it touches. Zeref is also one of the worlds most powerful mages having spend every day of his immortal existence studying and perfecting his magic. [[spoiler:Finally, after absorbing the power of Fairy Heart, Zeref gains to power to become a TimeMaster able to bend space time to his whim to the point that he can unwind time if he has been hurt to completely nullify to effects of any attack.]]
** The Black Dragon of the Apocalypse Acnologia, the second of the series BigBadEnsemble, is a creature so powerful that even Zeref fears him. [[spoiler:[[WasOnceAMan Once a normal Dragon Slayer]] Acnologia began slaughtering humans and dragons alike absorbing their magic to make himself stronger.]] By the time Fairy Tail's story begins Acnologia is shown to be a monster able to withstand the combined attacks of the strongest mages in Fairy Tail, which includes 4 Dragon Slayers who use magic specifically designed to hurt Dragons. Every battle that Acnologia faces ends with a CurbStomp in his favour and the one battle he was shown struggling in [[spoiler:against Natsu's father Igneel ended with him tearing a hole in said Dragons body and then blowing him up.]] It's revealed that the source of his immense power comes from his attribute [[spoiler:which is magic, meaning that any and all magic he can eat and make him even stronger]]. Even Zeref, who is also considered invincible, freely admits that [[spoiler:without going back in time and killing Acnologia when he was younger and weaker]] even he can't defeat him.

** Black Goku from ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' possessed an enhanced Zenkai ability that allows him to get stronger from every damage he takes and within the span of four battles with him grows from going toe-to-toe with a Super Saiyan 2 Goku, to being able to shrug of blows from Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta in his base from before tranforming into Super Saiyan Rose and utterly decimating Goku, Vegeta and Future Trunks despite being at their strongest form. Even Vegeta gaining the upper hand ends up being negated when he simply used his scythe to create clones that quickly overwhelms both Goku and Vegeta. And with him fusing with Zamasu after the latter suffered a VillainousBreakdown, he remains completely undefeated and [[KarmaHoudini will never get the chance to answer for his crimes either]]. As an added bonus, he is one of the very few villains to never suffer a VillainousBreakdown and his compliance with Future Zamasu's request for fusion isn't out of desperation but because he decides to stop playing around.

* Wrestling/{{TNA}}'s director of wrestling operations Wrestling/{{M|ontelVontaviousPorter}}VP after his FaceHeelTurn. He was free to pit World Heavyweight Champion Eric Young in as many hopeless matches as he saw fit, in order to soften him Young up for what MVP considered to be an inevitable title victory at the next pay per view, silencing any descent among the baby faces with suspensions, unwanted matches or simply not allowing them to be booked. His momentum ended up being halted [[RealLifeWritesThePlot by his own knee injury,]] which just resulted him throwing all his power behind Wrestling/BobbyLashley, which in turn lead to MVP losing his power thanks to a DeusExMachina called the board of directors, allowing Lashley to become champion but also giving Bobby some vulnerability, despite MVP's claims to contrary.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'': Since his introduction, Rustal Elion has displayed advantages no other antagonist in the series ever had: an army of the best Mobile Suits [[ArmiesAreEvil Gjallarhorn]] can afford, fanatically devoted soldiers willing to die for him and corrupt politicians and terrorists under his payroll. He is also a master strategist who never leaves anything to chance and tries to be as prepared as possible. Any time [[AntiHeroTeam Tekkadan]] comes close to defeating them, he always has an ace up his sleeve that turns the tables to his advantage; which means any victories against him are earned at a [[PyrrhicVictory very high cost]]. His endgame against Tekkadan is an effective [[MaliciousSlander smear campaign]] that turns public opinion against them. By the end of the story, [[spoiler:he ''[[TheBadGuyWins wins]]''. That's right, ''he defeats Tekkadan''. Even if he doesn't kill every last member, he permanently tarnishes their reputation and forces them to go on the run. He even takes over Gjallarhorn and turns it into a democratic government and Kudelia has no choice but ''to work with him'' to achieve her dream of a free, independent Mars. It really says something about this guy when the surviving protagonists have to get new identities in order to get a semblance of a happy ending. And it's implied he knows who they really are and only lets them live because it's convenient for him. Yep, ''Tekkadan can only live at his mercy''.]]

** Nearly every BigBad on Arrow is this to some degree, at least combat-wise. Slade had the Mirakuru, making him superhuman on top of already being a skilled enough combatant to match Oliver without it. Ra's al Ghul was the WorldsBestWarrior and Oliver had to get training from Ra's himself in order to beat him. Darhk had magic from a totem, arguably making him the most dangerous of them all. The only aversion so far is Season Five BigBag Prometheus, who is more-or-less on even keel with Oliver physically and a little less skill-wise (which is still dangerous enough to anyone that isn't Oliver or a meta). Instead, his most dangerous asset is [[TheChessmaster his ability to manipulate people and events to his desired outcome: psychological torture]].

* Malcolm Merlyn in ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' has basically become this, because he's always one step ahead of Oliver Queen. In Season 1, every time Oliver faced his black arrow alter ego in one-on-one combat, he lost. Oliver is able to stop Merlin's master plan of destroying the city, but not before most of the city gets destroyed, anyway. Malcolm is able to fake his death in Season 2 and get to know his biological daughter [[spoiler:Thea]]. During season 3, Malcolm is able to continue scheming behind the scenes and manipulate Oliver to the point that [[spoiler: by the end of the season, Malcolm takes over the League of Assassins after Oliver killed Ra's al Ghul.]] Then [[spoiler:he agrees to allow Sara's revival, causing Nyssa to destroy the Lazarus Pit. Nyssa then challenges Malcolm for leadership, but Oliver fights in her stead, cutting off Malcolm's hand. Nyssa then disbands the League, causing Malcolm to swear vengeance. He ends up helping free Darhk from prison, resulting in Laurel's death. After Darhk is killed by Oliver, Malcolm is recruited by [[Series/TheFlash2014 Eobard Thawne]] and Darhk from TheEighties to be a part of what will be known as [[Series/LegendsOfTomorrow the Legion of Doom]]]].

* The second season of ''Series/TheFlash2014'' has Zoom, a speedster much more powerful and skilled than Barry. Their first encounter ends with Barry paralyzed from the waist down (he gets better thanks to his HealingFactor), after Zoom counters Barry's every move and proves to be a skilled fighter to boot ([[spoiler:it helps that Zoom was the one who taught Barry one of those moves in the first place using his "Jay Garrick" persona]]). Barry spends the whole season working on his speed and skills just to get to Zoom's level ([[spoiler:which is precisely what Zoom wants, since his end goal is to steal Barry's speed, so he's really just "fattening him up"]]). Just as Barry manages to become faster [[spoiler:thanks to TimeTravel and the Reverse-Flash's help]], Zoom uses good old-fashioned kidnapping to force Barry to give up his speed. Barry manages to get his speed back, but it's not until the season finale that he becomes able to actually best Zoom in combat. Then comes season 3, and Barry has to face Savitar, a self-described god of speed, who is so fast he appears to be teleporting from place to place. There is really nothing Barry can do against him directly. [[spoiler:Their first fight after Savitar breaks free from his prison does have Barry landing a few punches and actually hurting Savitar, but the fight still ends with him being nearly killed]].

* A ''Series/TheFlash2014[=/=]Series/{{Arrow}}'' crossover introduces Vandal Savage, a 4000-year-old immortal, who is also extremely adept at [[KnifeNut using knives]], whose skills put even Barry and Oliver to shame (that's right, Barry might have SuperSpeed, but Vandal's [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower millennia of training]] make even him barely able to keep up). In fact, in one timeline, Savage manages to kill most of the heroes and destroy Central City. Fortunately, Barry's time-meddling results in Savage being burned to ashes by his own weapon. You think this stopped him? Not according to ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'', where Savage is revealed to be able to regenerate FromASingleCell. In fact, the spin-off entire first season is dedicated to trying to stop Savage in multiple time periods, with the heroes usually failing. [[spoiler:It turns out that the Time Masters themselves were helping Savage and manipulating the team in order to stop a future AlienInvasion]]. Eventually, [[spoiler:Savage is only stopped because his plan for unraveling time itself has a side effect of turning him mortal again, allowing him to be killed]].

Season 2 has the Legion of Doom, a trio composed of [[Series/TheFlash2014 Eobard Thawne]], [[Series/{{Arrow}} Damien Darhk, and Malcolm Merlyn]] ([[spoiler:with Rip being temporarily turned evil by Thawne's memory manipulation, thus becoming a fourth member]]). While Darhk and Merlyn are perfectly killable, especially since this is Darhk from TheEighties (i.e. before he learned magic), they still have their League of Assassins training. Meanwhile, Thawne is practically unstoppable, since there are no speedsters among the Legends (and no one things to use the cold gun on him), except [[spoiler:he himself is on the run from the Black Flash (ex-Zoom), so he can only pop in for quick visits]].

** ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' has Zarc, whose deck is MasterOfAll with regards to all 4 Summon types, allowing him to call out and recycle upgraded versions of the Dimension Dragons while being nearly untouchable due to the interlocking defensive effects of his cards. Over the course of five episodes he beats through nine professional duelists in succession, emerging nearly unscathed after each defeat he issues. Even a set of cards specifically designed to counter his playstyle gets countered, after Zarc having wised up to how he was previously beaten. He finally goes down once Yuya intervenes long enough for those cards to fully take effect.
