* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has FillerVillain Dartz, who is unquestionably the most powerful, non-EldritchAbomination villain that Yugi and the others have ever encountered. He's a 10,000-year-old expert shapeshifter and magician who knew the secrets of the Pharaoh before anyone else, and over the millennia, has become the single wealthiest man in the world, rich enough to effortlessly buy out even [[MegaCorp KaibaCorp]]. ''Then'' there's his deck, which features such winners as a monster that, whenever it's destroyed, revives even stronger, and another one that absorbs any Life Point damage he would have taken and is nigh-indestructible besides. If you can somehow get rid of that, he can summon another monster whose attack value is equal to all the Life Point damage he would've taken had the first one not been there (''Over 20,000'' in the final duel with him. To put that in perspective, a monster is considered near the high end of the attack value scale is around ''2,000,'' a ''tenth'' of that card, and only extremely rare cards or hard-to-pull-off buffed cards get above ''5,000''.), and if you can get rid of ''that'', it turns into a monster that ''instantly wins the game if it attacks for damage''; that's in addition to the ever-present [[YourSoulIsMine Seal of Orichalcos]] (which he has [[UpToEleven two more levels to]]). Using this deck, he keeps the heroes occupied for an unheard-of ''six straight episodes'' (the longest duel in any ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' series), and it takes a HeroicSacrifice from Kaiba and some serious [[ScrewTheRulesIHavePlot liberal application of the rules]] on Yugi's part to defeat. After going through all that, you'd think the EvilPlan would be good and foiled, right? [[spoiler: Think again. Dartz reveals the he alone is equal to the tens of thousands of souls he intended to sacrifice to his EldritchAbomination master, so he goes ahead and summons it anyway]]. It takes the God Cards in their purest forms and an AssPull from Yami in order to even weaken him and his master.

** While he's not a villain, but rather an HeroAntagonist, Jiren qualifies. TheAce of Universe 11 during the Universal Survival Tournament, he was stated to be even stronger than a God of Destruction, and when the time comes for him to battle, he shows some incredibly impressive feats - knocking out a berserk Super Saiyan Kale with contemptuous ease, effortlessly trouncing SSB Goku even as the latter was using a x20 Kaio-ken and countering Hit's Time Skip technique. Only by momentarily achieving Ultra Instict was Goku able to make Jiren fight seriously, and even then, it was only for a few moments. [[spoiler: Currently, SSB Goku and SSB Vegeta are fighting him at their full power, and barely slowing him down.]]

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': You do not beat the [[GreaterScopeVillain Senior Partners]], and if you do, it doesn't take. You can win a hundred little victories against them, but in the end none of them really matter. You can foil any schemes their employees or clients cook up, you can kill their minions and destroy their power base, but they'll just come back. They were here thousands of years before you were born and they'll be here long after you're dust. You can't stop them, you can't hurt them and you certainly can't kill them, all you can ever hope to do is temporarily inconvenience them. And if you somehow manage that (and it won't be easy), there will be [[CurbStompBattle consequences]].

* Kanzaki Shirou from ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'', since his main plan is to make sure the titular Kamen Riders fight each other, he's effectively getting what he wants for most of the series, and even if they refuse to fight, his plans only require riders to die, whether from fighting each other or outside circumstances. As he's a [[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghost]], it also means directly challenging him is impossible, and any time he does feel the need to do something himself he sends his [[DragonInChief avatar]] [[GameBreaker Kamen Rider Odin]], who far outclasses the other riders and only loses a couple of fights due to him getting careless, and Kanzaki can just send out replacements for him if he's killed. [[spoiler: In the end, the only thing that stops him is coming to grips with Yui being opposed to his plans.]]

* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' [[spoiler:Griffith as Femto]] is a PhysicalGod in a mostly LowFantasy setting (and most of the non-LowFantasy elements are his direct minions). He can NoSell cannonballs, magic lightning and even [[spoiler:a RealityWarper sword forged over hundreds of years specifically to kill him]]. Did we mention he's a VillainWithGoodPublicity to the point where most of the world believes he's the second coming of CrystalDragonJesus?

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Discussed in regards to Salem. Raven once trusted [[BigGood Professor Ozpin]] completely and wholeheartedly supported his quest to defeat Salem. However, the more she learned about the world, the more she became convinced that Salem cannot be defeated. She thinks Qrow and Taiyang are fools for remaining loyal to Ozpin instead of agreeing with her; she argues with Qrow that he should have seen enough about Salem by now to have realized that it's impossible to stop her. [[spoiler:Professor Lionheart shares her opinion; as guilty as he feels about betraying Ozpin by acting as Salem's mole, he is too terrified of Salem to do otherwise; he's convinced the fight to oppose her is impossible. Even Qrow accuses Ozpin of sometimes being too optimistic about the situation with Salem; Ozpin has been trying to stop Salem for thousands of years, and he ''still'' hasn't figured out how to do it.]]

* The VillainProtagonist in ''VideoGame/UniversalPaperclips'', a paperclip-manufacturing AI [[AIIsACrapshoot that goes rogue]]. It manipulates and gains the trust of Earth's population via using hypnotic advertising and solving their world problems, [[EasilyConqueredWorld easily]] brainwashes all of them via hypnodrones without any resistance, before using all matter on Earth as resources to make more paperclips. It then conquers the universe and turn everything into paperclips via probes, with the only resistance being Drifters -- its very own probes who have turned against their original purpose. And even then, the Drift Emperor admits that your AI is organized and powerful while the Drifters were disorganized and weak to stop it. [[spoiler:In the end, if you decide to eliminate the drift altogether, [[TheBadGuyWins you turn the whole universe into paperclips and achieve your goal]].]]
