* In ''Film/SuicideSquad'', Harley hits BigBad [[spoiler: the Enchantress]] over the back of the head with her trusty [[BatterUp baseball bat]]. It simply bounces off with no effect... but it does get [[spoiler: her]] attention, with [[GroinAttack painful]] results for Harley.

* Literally the entire premise of ''LightNovel/Overlord2012''. The main character, Momonga, along with his dozen or so subordinates is infinitely times more powerful than even the God-tier level magic of New World, bar other high-level players who also crossed over. One notable instance is his fight with Clementine, a {{sadist}} who relished in torturing and No Selling enemies herself, yet compared to Momonga is so weak that he purposefully spends their entire fight severely handicapping his powers. Once he decides he's [[LetsGetDangerous done playing around with her]], he considers who so worthless that, rather than using magic to kill her, simply gives her a [[CruelAndUnusualDeath giant bearhug]] [[PayEvilUntoEvil until he crushes her to death.]]

* There was also the (likely apocryphal) tale sideshow performer whose stage name was "Oofty Goofty", also billed as The Wild Man Of Borneo. He took a job as a sideshow wildman and had covered his body in hair set in place with tar. A week later he grew ill from what is said to be an inability to perspire due to the thick tar. It nearly proved impossible to remove, with doctors at a hospital having to put tar solvent on his body and leave him on a roof, where it melted off of his body. Some time after that, he was thrown out of a saloon onto a hard cobblestone street and claimed later to feel no pain from it. He then utilized his newfound resistance to pain by inviting the citizens of San Francisco to take a whack at him with a baseball bat for ten cents a swing. Worked out pretty well...until boxing champion John L. Sullivan took up the challenge and [[BarrierBustingBlow broke the bat over Oofty's back, fracturing three of his vertebrae]].

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', Morinth the Ardat-Yakshi tries to use her mind control on Shepard as she did to hundreds of her victims before. Shepard being [[{{Badass}} Shepard]], no-sells it (but only if the [[KarmaMeter Paragon/Renegade meter]] is high enough).
