* 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.

* A RunningGag in ''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.

* This happens in ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' when [[VillainProtagonist Taylor]] and [[AwesomenessByAnalysis Tattletale]] are facing down Glory Girl, a FlyingBrick whose sister they have taken hostage. Taylor [[TheMinionMaster covers her with bugs]], in response to which Glory Girl says that she's invincible, to which Tattletale retorts that no, she's not, she just has a force field--one that shorts out temporarily when she takes a hard hit, like a gunshot. At which point Tattletale shoots her, letting Taylor's insects through. ** Tattletale's [[BatDeduction power]] makes her scarily good at this--at one point, she does it to the Siberian, a legendary, invincible supervillain who is a HeroKiller, [[spoiler:by figuring out that she's actually a solid force field projection created and controlled by someone else. Dragon then hunts down the creator and kills him.]]

* [[Literature/TheSeaWolf Wolf Larsen]] remains undefeated in physical (or verbal) confrontation - right up until an apparent brain tumor does him in. Foreshadowed by his unthinkably painful headaches at various points before the end.

Then one of its ships gets popped in a fight with the Manties. The Sollies repeatedly double down to restore their reputation for invincibility, with generally lamentable results.

* [[{{DCU}} DC's]] TheQuestion was never a "Big Gun," [[BadassNormal he had no super powers]] and his foes were street-level criminals and human organizations, but he was still reputably {{badass}} and [[MadeOfIron tough]]: the first issue of his Dennis O'Neil series ([[MyRealDaddy his most well-known series]]) ended with him defeated in a one-on-one fight by [[DarkActionGirl Lady Shiva]], then his body was viciously beaten by the gang she was working for, then he was shot in the head with an air-gun and ''then'' [[RasputinianDeath he was thrown into a frozen river and left for dead]]. Not only did he survive, pulled out of the water by Shiva, but he was then given martial arts training by Richard Dragon (Regarded as ''the'' premier martial artist of the DCU and one of the trainers of Franchise/{{Batman}}, Bronze Tiger and the afore-mentioned Shiva) so he came back ''even tougher''... then, in ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', it is revealed that he has developed terminal lung cancer exacerbated by a lifetime of smoking. It has recently metastasized and now he is wasting away, physically and mentally. [[RealityEnsues There is no mystical cure and no advanced alien treatment, his cancer is untreatable]] [[{{Tearjerker}} and he dies outside the gates of Nanda Parbat]].

** She doesn't seem fully knocked out considering she is sitting up or trying to climb out of the hole while groaning in the one panel depicting her after the fall, but it does make her look less invincible (albeit being a gag and not necessarily a legit battle showing).
