* In ''WhiteKnightChronicles'', Grazel's Knight Adolmea the Sun King is supposedly the most powerful one. It lives up to that reputation for a while since its magical protection renders most attacks even from fellow Knights ineffective. Then Leonard obtains the sword Falcyon which is able to cut through Adolmea's defenses. Grazel is suitably shaken after being defeated so easily in their rematch.

** During the finale of the Manga and ''Brotherhood'', [[spoiler: Father has seemingly absorbed God and nothing the heroes do can seem to have any lasting damage that he can't regenerate from. They persist anyway...and then he instinctively uses his hand to block an attack much to both his and his opponents' shock. A sign that his power is starting to wane and their attacks ''are'' working. To which the heroes continue their attack with renewed vigor.]]

** Jiren, the strongest fighter for Universe 11 is an absolute monster who has defeated all his enemies with no trouble, from a berserker Kale and Maji Kayo to Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Hit. He is even confirmed to be the mortal who was rumored to be ''stronger'' than a god of destruction! However, during the climax of the tournament he is shown to not be invincible, since Goku was able to slip him up and almost ring him out through trickery and Vegeta managed to memorize his movements to avoid his attacks and land a solid blow right in his stomach. He also struggles against Goku and Vegeta's combined powers when they double team him. So despite being a mortal stronger than gods he isn't unbeatable, just really, really, really, REALLY hard to beat.

** In some version of the myth, it didn't actually kill him, just caused him constant, unending agony, so he set himself on fire to escape the pain.

* Porthos the giant member of our band in "The Three Musketeers" and "The Man in the Iron Mask" so big and strong that he can't even kill himself by hanging (though it does cure his impotence which is why he was doing it) is killed holding up a huge rock in "Thirty Years After."

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has its plot kick off when protagonist Izuku finds out that his hero All Might, TheCape incarnate and the number one hero around, received a crippling blow five years ago that limits the use of his powers and All Might is running out of time. As the story progresses All Might's ability to use his powers drops further and further, accelerated by passing the torch to Izuku and his own heroic nature leading him to push himself too far too often, until [[spoiler: he finally uses up the last of it bringing down All For One, an insanely powerful supervillain who killed his mentor and then raised her grandson to be evil just to spite her memory. This has several consequences, including All Might's now-powerlessness revealed to the world, an unworthy NumberTwo becoming the new number one hero, and immense guilt from Bakugou, who All Might was rescuing from All For One.]] In addition, All Might's former sidekick used his future vision and foresaw All Might dying within two years of the start of the series.
** The Villain Invasion Arc is Class A learning a whole about the pro heroes they look up to as their teacher Eraserhead and the hero Thirteen are both badly beaten by the League of Villains, who overwhelm Eraserhead with numbers and then a creature designed to beat All Might while Thirteen gets ambushed via a portal trick while trying to help some of the students get outside to get help. Seeing the injuries Eraserhead incurs ends up terrifying Izuku, Tsuyu, and Mineta, and the whole class leaves the experience realizing just how tough the pro heroes have it and the sort of things they're being trained to hopefully survive because they're ''not'' invincible, no matter what the public thinks.

* One shot Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}} foe Carl King aka The Thousand was a man turned into [[TheWormThatWalks a swarm of spiders]]. All the spiders are seemingly destroyed via electrocution and Spider-Man leaves. One of the spiders survives and vows revenge, boasting that he is invincible as long as there are spiders for him to inhabit. He is then stepped on by an oblivious passerby.

* The T-34 tank. While it certainly was invincible against inferior German designs in 1941 and good part of 1942, the newer German tank cannons, such as 75 mm Kwk 42 and formidable 88 mm Kwk 36 could destroy it with ease, and it proved to be a death trap when coming second best. In 1943, it was hopelessly outclassed against the newer German designs. And then American tankers in Easy 8 Shermans repeatedly kicked its ass in Korea, let alone the newer, heavier Pershing and Centurion tanks.

** History would repeat for
the newer, tank in Korea. The initial offensive saw North Korean T-34s shrug off South Korean bazookas and Chaffee light tanks. Once heavier Pershing UN formations with Shermans, Pershings, and Centurion tanks.Centurions arrived, though, the tank was on the receiving end of repeated asskickings.

* A RunningGag in ''Webcomic/CaptainSNES''. Anyone who says the phrase "I am invincible!", regardless of how powerful they are, will end up getting hurt in some way, even if they're only correcting someone else or quoting someone else who said it. In the world of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'', an explosion threw a number of treasure boxes all over the world; every single one so far has landed on someone foolish enough to say "I am invincible!" And it happens every single time, without fai... * gets hit by a treasure chest from the sky.
