* Any [[{{heel}} rudos]] who participate in Wrestling/{{CMLL}}'s body building contests can be counted. Rush was ''supposed'' to be a tecnico but became infamous enough for his participation in them to become a rudo in all but name.



* One WWF television segment followed the immortal wrestling announcer "Mean Gene" Okerlund going to a gym to interview "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff to get their thought on their upcoming tag team main event match against WWF Champion Hulk Hogan and Mr. T at the inaugural Wrestlemania pay per view. Orndorff was in the midst of curling impressive amounts of weight, and Piper, who was merely observing at the time (along with bodyguard "Cowboy" Bob Orton) saw fit to insult and berate Okerlund for disturbing their preparation. At the end of it, the heels advance menacingly towards Gene and ultimately throw him out of the gym and into the streets. A passerby comes to Gene's aid only to be viciously beaten by Piper's cohorts.

* Count Dooku, a.k.a. Darth Tyranus, was shown sparring with General Grievous in the ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars'' animated series. Most other master vs. apprentice fights in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' universe tend to be cases of attempted KlingonPromotion although they ''could'' be considered training for the apprentices. (Grievous is not technically Dooku's apprentice, as he is not a Sith, or even a Force-user for that matter. The fact that he is one of the few beings that is formidable in lightsaber combat without being Force-sensitive is something that makes him truly unique as a villain.)

There's also some foreshadowing here, as Dooku is advising Grevious on how to cover for his weaknesses - which include lightsaber combat - by exploiting his cybernetics as an instrument of intimidation and terror, using his elite robot bodyguard force to harass opponents beforehand, and to immediately run from any fight against a Jedi in which he doesn't already have a definite psychological advantage.

* In Creator/WilliamShakespeare's ''Theatre/{{Cymbeline}}'' Cloten is proud of his prowess with the sword. What he fails to take into account is, his sparring partners know he is 1) the Prince and 2) borderline AxCrazy and will have them killed if he loses a match. Naturally, once he's up against a real opponent he's quickly killed.

** In ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'', Frieza trains offscreen after coming back to life to become strong enough to beat Goku. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for him, he didn't train long enough. He stopped as soon as he discovered his own SuperMode and rushed to Earth before figuring out how to properly regulate the energy it demanded, something he already had problems with in his ''normal forms'' all the way back on Namek. Though he's able to hold his own against Goku's astronomical rise in power since their last encounter, he quickly wears himself out in the span of a few minutes, and by the time he fights Vegeta, who has also reached similar heights, he can barely land a meaningful punch.]]

*** However, Fisk has learned the hard way that no matter how much he works out or how much he hones his fighting skills, the only reason he's ever held his own against Spider-Man is because Spidey restrains himself so much. Get Spider-Man seriously pissed off, as he once foolishly did, and the curb-stomp beating that Spider-Man inflicted on him was epic to behold. The fight ended with Fisk practically crippled and fully aware that Spider-Man could kill him any time he wanted. It'll be a cold day in Hell before Fisk ever does anything that stupid again.
