* Thor completely No Sells Titania when she tried to attack him in the first Secret Wars storyline. Titania was drunk on her new-found power and thought nothing could stop her, so she just charged right in. Against ''Thor.'' Edging into TooDumbToLive, although Thor didn't kill her.
-->'''Titania''': Me! Titania! The woman who killed Thor! (Punches Thor)
-->'''Thor''': Mayhap, woman. (Hits Titania so hard she is knocked out of sight over the horizon) When icicles doth grace Surter's firey realm.

** Main reason, that [[spoiler:[[BigBad Neo demon]]]] is so hard to kill, is the fact, that he can eat [[ExtremeOmnivore virtually everything, including enemy attacks]]. So far he managed to eat [[spoiler:attack that can stop the Earth, attack, that sends ripples trough Earth, several giant meteorites and even tiny supernova, capable of destroying the planet]]. And even when he not eating the attack, he still can take ridiculous mounts of damage - even attack, that punches him through entire planet ''several times'', only lightly bloodied him up.

* Related to no-selling is sandbagging, when a wrestler resists an opponent's slam or pick-up technique, making it difficult if not impossible to perform. While mostly a case of simply being too green to distribute their weight properly, some wrestlers intentionally sandbag when facing someone they don't like. [[Wrestling/BobHolly Hardcore Holly]] was infamous for sandbagging against any and all rookies. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnBK1qvofK8 Although he fervently denies attempting to sandbag on Brock Lesnar]]. In a televised match with then-rookie Wrestling/BrockLesnar, the story goes that Holly started sandbagging and delivering stiff shots (i.e. real punches). Eventually, Lesnar got Holly into a powerbomb position, went to put him on his shoulders. [[TooDumbToLive Holly sandbagged the lift]], Lesnar did the move anyway, and Holly was dropped on his neck, breaking it and causing him to be legitimately out for 13 months. Holly maintains he wasn't [[TooDumbToLive dumb enough to sandbag on a guy Lesnar's size]] and that the move simply went wrong. Nonetheless, it demonstrates why these moves are done together.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{How To Train Your Dragon 2}}'': All baby dragons are immune to the Bewilderbeast's hypnotic call (because babies "don't listen to anyone"), which is fortunate for the heroes when all their adult dragons are hypnotized and they need a ride to go save them.


Added DiffLines:

* For every dragon weakness on ''WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk'', there's at least one species that's immune to it:
** Typhoomerangs are able to eat eels, which are poisonous to all other dragons.
** Scauldrons are able to eat blue oleander, a flower that's lethal poison to all other dragons.
** Gronckles are unaffected by all forms of dragon root, an herb that causes dragons to go crazy and, in concentrated liquid form, can incapacitate them.
** Whispering Deaths are, unfortunately, unaffected by dragon nip, which has a calming effect on all other dragons.
** The Death Song lures its prey in with a hypnotic song; Thunderdrums are unaffected since [[DisabilityImmunity they have terrible hearing]].
** Viggo's dragon hunters make their chains, cages, etc. from a "dragon-proof" metal completely impervious to all forms of dragon fire and that dragons can't bite or claw through. Only a Razorwhip tail is sharp enough to slice through it, and the Hot Burple is the only dragon that can bite through it.
** It turns out marble is also impervious to all forms of dragon fire and able to completely withstand physical dragon attacks. So far, only Catastrophic Quakens are strong enough to damage marble.
** The dragon-worshipping Defenders of the Wing feed the local dragons sage fruit to keep them docile and non-aggressive. Toothless is the first dragon they've ever seen resist its effects (to protect Hiccup).

** [[TheParalyzer Knocking master Jirou]] after [[spoiler:taking off his [[PowerLimiter seals]],]] gained ability to stop damage from enemy attacks within his body. That ability allows him to take mountain-leveling attacks without even a scratch.

* Often used in ''Manga/{{Toriko}}''. However two characters do this particularly often:
** Midora no sells almost anything, that gets thrown on him, including opponents ability to [[TimeMaster manipulate time]]. [[spoiler:[[TheDragon Joie]]]] at first wasn't even be able to put a scratch on him, and after she lowered his defenses enough to cut him in pieces, he just start to regenerate his body (without changing his bored and disappointed facial expression), making all her attacks mute. In the end [[spoiler: she had to seal him, since he was pretty much unkillable.]]
