* ''Literature/The Saint'' does this quite often in his early adventures. A particularly memorable example is in ''The Wonderful War.'' One of the Ungodly tries to punch out Simon in the midst of a BananaRepublic siesta time. Templar simply dodges his opponent's powerful but unskilled punches until the bad guy sinks to the ground in sweat-soaked exhaustion.

* This trope plays a role in Makoto's (soon to be Sailor Jupiter's) introduction in ''SailorMoon''. When her boyfriend is endangered by Zoisite, one of the supernatural Dark Generals, Makoto attacks him head-on with no idea she has any superpowers waiting for her. Zoisite, who ''does'' have magical powers and isn't isn't even human, nonchalantly avoids her attacks, hovers around, barely even looks at her, casually tilts his head to one side when she shies an earring at him like it's nothing -- ''and then she hits him.''

** In one anime-only scene from the Saiyan Saga, Piccolo uses the multi-form technique to train against himself. One Piccolo fires at the other, who dodges by simply titling his head.

** Ultra Instinct grants its user this ability. When using Ultra Instinct, the user's body reacts without thinking, allowing them to dodge everything with absolutely minimal effort.

** Ultra Instinct grants its user this ability. When using Ultra Instinct, the user's body reacts without thinking, allowing them to dodge everything with absolutely minimal effort. Whis demonstrates this when training Goku and Vegeta, acting bored while effortlessly dodging their attacks, commenting on the weather, and drawing symbols on their shirts.

* Particularly effective with Princess' debut episode in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''. After Princess trashes Buttercup and Bubbles thanks to her powerful gadgets, Blossom gets into it, and ''she is pissed''. Cue complete ownage, with Blossom merely moving her head to avoid Princess' flurry of punches. Including an {{Homage}} to ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' where Blossom dodges an energy blast simply by tilting her head, just as Goku did late in the Namek Saga. Pissed, she was, but she demonstrated that TranquilFury trumps UnstoppableRage, at least for that episode.

* ''Series/UchuuSentaiKyuranger'': The Jark Matter assassin Ikargen pulls this off throughout his appearances in the show, with the Kyurangers unable to land a hit on him even in a ten-on-one fight. He acts like he has the power of foresight, but the team eventually figures out his secret: [[spoiler:[[EyesDoNotBelongThere his body is covered with eyes]], giving him 360° vision. Lucky manages to get around this by using the [[DoppelgangerAttack Gemini Kyutama]] to make several dozen copies of himself and fire more lasers than even Ikargen could avoid.]]

* Wrestling/SamoaJoe will often do this when an opponent attempts an aerial move off the turnbuckles, casually walking to the side as the opponent crashes to the mat. Sometimes, though, his opponents get GenreSavvy. One time, Sonjay Dutt leapt to the ropes for a moonsault, stopped and turned his head and saw Joe casually move out of the way. When Joe didn't hear the crashing sound of him hitting the mat, he turned around, and ''then'' Sonjay nailed him with a moonsault.
