** Several Grimm variants also count, particularly the Goliaths, who are massive mammoth-like Grimm who can pretty much just ignore small arms fire while slowly stomping along, and the Nuckelavee, who moves very slowly but can withstand the entirety of Team RNJR unloading into it at range and melee with weapons able to tear apart buildings and shatter boulders.

* Once she ups her training in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10092339/23/Ranma-Saotome-Chi-Master Ranma Saotome, Chi Master]]'' Akane is noticeably slower than Ranma but she's extremely talented at chi reinforcement (which increases her strength and defenses) so she's also at least three times as strong.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', the Colossal Titan takes this to CripplingOverspecialization levels. It can smash the Walls and doom humanity, but can hardly lay a massive finger on the [[FragileSpeedster Survey Corps]] used to '''much''' faster opponents. It would be dead if it didn't have the power to emit scorching hot steam to protect itself.

* Nolan Sorrento's Mecha-Godzilla mech in ''Literature/ReadyPlayerOne'' is a massive, hulking robot that towers over all of the other robots in the Battle of Castle Anorak and fires a destructive mouth beam. To compensate for its massive size, devastating attack power and [[DamageSpongeBoss being able to take a hit]], the thing is ''very'' slow.

** Older Iron Warriors rules meant they could take an additional Heavy Support unit in exchange for two Fast Attack slots. Among the Chaos Space Marines, you could count on them being the ones to bring the most tanks.

** Heavy bombers in general until supersonic jet bombers started showing up in the late 1950s. The American B-17 is a particularly famous example: a cruising speed of less than 200 MPH married to up to 17,000 lbs of bombs and a legendary ability to survive battle damage. B-17s were known to return home one one engine, sans most of the tail, or on one immortalized instance, ''after a German fighter had crashed into it''.
** Also the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vickers_Wellington Vickers Wellington]], whose geodesic construction made it both exceptionally sturdy and able to accommodate ever-bigger bomb loads.

* Diesel engines are much heavier than petrol-operated engines, have much less power due to combustion limitations and runs at lower rounds, but they are frugal on fuel economy and have more torque to compensate for it.

** It's so resilient, it's tanked multiple congressional and military attempts to scrap them. Current plans are to convert the fleet for drone operations.
