* The ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' writers ''love'' doing this with Guinevere. In the episode ''Lamia'' she almost gets to kill a monster...until she's knocked off her feet and Arthur stabs it in the back. In ''The Hunter's Heart'' she runs all night and all day to warn Camelot of an impending attack from an army of mercenaries...but no one listens to her. And in ''The Sword and the Stone'' she goes toe-to-toe with Morgana...and is promptly disarmed and has to be saved by Merlin.
** Not to mention all the times the show subverts the BadassBoast. Every time someone makes one, you know that they're doomed. Merlin is the only one who managed to play it straight thus far, and even he subverted it in ''Lamia''.
** And then there's that infamous example from ''Sins of the Father'' when Arthur calls Uther out on all of his own wrongdoings, only for him to go too far and force Merlin to press the ResetButton to keep him from patricide.

* In ''Film/RogueOne'' Darth Vader personally boards a disabled Rebel ship to stop them from stealing the Death Star plans. He falls upon the terrified Rebels like an angel of death, mowing down an entire squad of armed fighters in a minute-long display of the most nightmarishly-glorious carnage... and then he fails to notice one guy passing the data disk five feets away from him, the Rebels get it to the escape ship anyway and blast off unopposed, because he also neglected to have the boarded ship, or at least its docks, properly cordoned. Yes, this being a prequel, it was a ForegoneConclusion, but it was still pretty embarrassing. Especially if you recall how earlier entire squads of armed Stormtroopers had been mown down even faster by an ordinary Rebel gunner with a repeater blaster.

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Belkar was fighting a vampire goliath. He came up with a clever plan to lure it into a trap, but at the last second, [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots1026.html his moment was stolen. Twice.]] Even worse, he was denied bragging rights for being ProperlyParanoid about [[spoiler:Vampire Durkon]].
** He suffered another one previously: the famous "[[AtopAMountainOfCorpses sexy shoeless god of war]]" [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0439.html scene]]. Problem is, by D&D 3.5 rules, if you can kill enemies so easily that you can build [[AtopAMountainOfCorpses a mountain out of them]], ''you don't get anything for it''.

** During the fourth ninja world war, the five Kages take on BiggerBad [[spoiler:Uchiha Madara]], which is acknowledged as awesome in-Universe, but because the enemy is [[spoiler:Uchiha Madara, who now also has the additional advantages offered by Edo Tensei]], they get [[CurbStompBattle curbstomped]] [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome off-panel]], and the enemy doesn't even bother [[spoiler:finishing them off because he got bored of the fight.]]
