** ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' escalates the invincibility of its BigBad villains, with Z-One, a literal PhysicalGod who controls the space time continuum who could and does erase anything in existence that threatens his plan. His deck is an entirely different matter, as every last monster in his deck has incredibly powerful effects, and if you manage to defeat of all of them, he has an even more overpowering one that has the combined attack of all of his monsters (for bonus points, not only does it have the combined attack of them all, another of its effects actually raises the attack power of the others to 4000) with a very powerful effect as well.
** ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'' manages to top even this with Don Thousand. His ace monster has 10,000 attack and a plethora of great abilities, like destroying all of the opponent's monsters and then summoning every monster sent to the graveyard that turn afterwards. You managed to destroy it? Congratulations, now he gets to summon an even stronger version of it that has 100,000 (Yes, that's the correct number. One hundred thousand.), which is immune to card effects and MUST be attacked if you are able to. Failure to attack it means you automatically lose the duel, and with an attack score like that, ''successfully'' attacking it means you lose the duel. Oh, and it can negate attacks, so if you do somehow manage to achieve an attack rating that could successfully contend with that monster, then you still lose, because a negated attack is the same as if you hadn't attacked at all, meaning the autowin option activates.

** Yubel and Saiou from ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' are ridiculously powerful; with the former having control of not only an evil version of the three gods including their formidable fusion, but a monster that reflects all damage back to the enemy. He/she defeats everyone she/he meets including a user of an even stronger version of Exodia and the main character had to [[FusionDance merge]] with him/her in order to stop his/her mad rampage. With the latter, he predicts everything, and his charisma made it so no one would oppose him, as of course it took an AssPull, involving a student becoming a T-Rex in order to destroy his satellite, not to mention his fearsome deck.

Yubel is also incredibly clever and skilled in their own right, even aside from their power, and a master planner who more or less orchestrates the entire season, only occasionally coming out on the bottom and usually managing to pull something out even then. With the latter, he predicts everything, and his charisma made it so no one would oppose him, as of course it took an AssPull, involving a student becoming a T-Rex in order to destroy his satellite, not to mention his fearsome deck.

* Matt "Film/ManiacCop" Cordell of the film series of the same name pushes this even by 80's slasher villain standards. He seems to have the same unexplained powers as Jason Voorhees (super strong, ImmuneToBullets, undead), but is also quite intelligent and tactical, capable of using guns, driving cars, and framing others for his killings. These things together, not even BruceCampbell or TomAtkins last long, and at the end of each film the best the surviving heroes can do is survive for a few days longer or give him what he wants. One character even explicitly states that all the cops in the world can't stop Cordell, even though you'd think bodily dismemberment or blowing him to giblets would still be viable options.

* Under a bad writer, the Comicbook/TeenTitans' archnemesis Slade Wilson/ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}} can be this. His most infamous showing was in ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'', in which he demonstrated ''faster reflexes than even [[TheFlash Wally West]]'' and ''enough willpower to convince a GreenLantern ring to not attack him''. The encounter ends with half the Justice League on the floor spitting up blood, and Slade quipping that this League, made up mostly of new faces (in ComicBookTime terms, anyway) to superheroing, is so much weaker than the old one... despite the fact that many of them (Wally in particular) are ''far'' more powerful than their predecessors. He is only taken down because Green Arrow catches him off guard and shoves an arrow into his blind eye. You'd think that an [[EyeScream arrow to the eye]] would have done something more than force him to retreat, but he was just fine afterwards.

* [[KnightOfCerebus Nukus]] from BigBadBeetleBorgs started out as the OutsideContextProblem variant of this; as soon as he brought to life, he proves savvy enough to destroy the Beetle Borgs' weaponry, leaving them gradually losing. When they finally defeated the invincible monster he created to fight them, it turns out [[ILetYouWin he let them do it]] [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder so he could get rid of the actual villains]] [[MakeWayForTheNewVillains and take over as the new]] BigBad. He then proceeds to deliver a CurbStompBattle to the protagonists, obliterating their powers, and transforms the one who gave them power into ice. Of course, once the protagonists got new powers and he became the new BigBad, he lost this status and ended up defeated on regular basis.

* ''Anime/ReCreators'' gives us the Military Uniform Princess [[spoiler:AKA Altair]]. Thanks to the vaguely-explained Holopsicon, she's pretty much unbeatable since this weapon gives her RealityWarper powers, near-omniscience and invulnerability, to the point that not even a FantasticNuke could harm her. Also, all the real-world fan-generated content (the real world of the show, that is) of her add more and more abilities to her repertoire every day. The only reason why she hasn't curbstomped everyone and everything is that, by using her powers, she's fundamentally altering the physics of the real world, so abusing them could cause her to be deleted from existence.

** Doctor Octopus under Dan Slott's pen tends to fall under this as well, as the series goes out of it's way to give victory after victory towards Doc Ock. He steals Spider-Man's body, takes over his life with little to no consequence, gets his own private army and secret base, and manages to steamroll through every threat that is presented towards him. Even when Peter "Comes back to life," Otto suffers no defeat at Peter's hands, instead choosing to give up and give Peter back his body. And that's just in Superior Spider-Man. Since then Otto has returned several times, but has yet to actually lose a battle against Peter Parker.

* Chase Young from ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' is basically an immortal, powerful, intelligent, handsome, highly skilled warrior who outclasses every other villain on the show as well as most of the heroes, and almost never suffers major setbacks. In the first two episodes of the revival have him [[spoiler:get a spy amongst the Xiaolin warriors, who manages to steal all the Shen Gong Wu, and then he attacks the temple, defeats Master Fung with ease, and destroys the temple in a matter of minutes.]]
