StrongAsTheyNeedToBe. Not to be confused with the literal PostModernism case where the AuthorAvatar [[AuthorPowers is forced to save the characters]].

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' just loves doing these in it's canon stories
** Aizen was a shinigami who was already very well skilled even before revealing himself to be a BitchInSheepsClothing. But by the time it came to finally confront him, he gotten so ridiculously overpowered that virtually nothing the heroes did could even scratch him since it was always a part of his plan in some form or another. So how's he defeated? [[spoiler: Ichigo undergoing some last minute training, getting a major power up that'll likewise rob him of his power (temporarily as he gets them back in the next arc) and using that to beat Aizen. Heck he doesn't really beat him, just weakens him enough for a Kido spell Kisuke shot into earlier to finally activate. And even then, they can't kill Aizen just lock him away.]]
** And now we have Ywhach, the final BigBad of the series who is pretty much Aizen 2.0. He steamrolls ''everyone'' that goes against him (including Yammamoto, the head of the Gotei 13 who has the ''power of a sun''), manages to get into the Soul King palace, beats his Elite Guards by reviving his own elite guards after they're initially defeated, and manages to take the Soul King's power and merge with it. By this point, readers are wondering if there's even a way for him and his cronies to be beaten since every new power the heroes use doesn't seem to put them down for very long.

** And now we have Ywhach, the final BigBad of the series who is pretty much Aizen 2.0. He steamrolls ''everyone'' that goes against him (including Yammamoto, Yamamoto, the head of the Gotei 13 who has the ''power of a sun''), manages to get into the Soul King palace, beats his Elite Guards by reviving his own elite guards after they're initially defeated, and manages to take the Soul King's power and merge with it.it. His power at this point boils down to being a RealityWarper who can see and manipulate every possible future to his whim, even outright breaking the rules of other powers if he wants. By this point, readers are wondering if there's even a way for him and his cronies to be beaten since every new power the heroes use doesn't seem to put them down for very long.

* ''Series/GameOfThrone'' The White Walkers army can't be stopped, their leader can raise all his fallen enemies by waving his hands and the good guys just lost their WeakSauceWeakness in a fire. Thankfully for TheHero the tv producers confirmed the fan theory that Valyrian sword works on them too or it would have been even more hopeless.

* ''VideoGame/AlanWake'' has this happen InUniverse. The [[EldritchAbomination Dark Presence]] is using the manuscript that Alan wrote to achieve it's goals, which allows Alan to use the reality warping power of Cauldron Lake to change the rules of the story. He gives it a weakness to light, writes in the ammo and weapon pickups that are found in-game, and the numerous near escapes he has from both it and local law enforcement. It results in an in-story GenreShift from it being a straight CosmicHorrorStory into LovecraftLite. [[spoiler:It doesn't come without cost as he must take his wife's place in the Dark Place for it to balance the scales]].
