** This is subverted in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. You learn early on that Calamity Ganon is being sealed in Hyrule Castle to keep it from destroying what's left of Hyrule. However, you also gradually learn that the [[MadeOfEvil Malice]], the gooey and ashy substance that revives monsters and corrupted the Guardians and Divine Beasts a century ago, pretty much ''is'' part of Ganon's essence; sealing Calamity Ganon in Hyrule Castle only keeps ''most'' of the Malice in one location where it can't hurt people.

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames'' General Onox shows up in the beginning, captures [[BarrierMaiden Din]], sinks the Temple of Seasons, then retreats to his Fortress of Doom. It never occurs to him to finish off Link before he gets the PlotCoupons and invades the Fortress. Compare this to Veran in the other game, who is actively trying to build the [[TowerOfDoom Black Tower]] and interacts frequently with Link.

* ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'': Very much averted; the main villain, the White Queen, is active in every single volume. The only reason she doesn't immediately [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomp]] the main character Kyousuke is [[spoiler:because she's in love with him, and considers it fun to let him win]]. In the afterword of the first volume, the author even notes that this is one of the main themes of the series.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'': For all his faults, Shredder does ''not'' have this problem. Krang, on the other hand, does. While a couple of episodes show he's more than capable of fighting physically, he rarely leaves the control room of the Technodrome, letting Shredder and the "gruesome twosome" do the dirty work.

** Fanon interpretations strike [[GodOfWar Khorne]] particularly hard with this trope, referring to him as a particularly lazy slob who won't simply stand up and start spilling some blood himself. This is partly due to the "SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE" part of the infamous warcry, which leads to interpreting him as really loving that throne too much to leave it, and because every other god seems to be doing ''something'' in their wait: Tzeentch keeps weaving plan after plan, Slaanesh spends time [[AndIMustScream murderfucking Eldar souls for eternity]], and Nurgle continually brews new plagues, and even if he were fully idle at least his domain justifies it. Khorne, whose domain would expect more activity than any of the other three, does nothing of the sort, and apparently all he does is watch his servants fight everyone forever, with only the occasional gift to a powerful warrior. Thus, as impressive as his servants are, the God himself ends up coming off as less of an unstoppable force of violence and more of a "[[WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice paraplegic sociopath]]".

* The Autarch from Literature/MasksOfAygrima is only seen outside his palace once (aside from the prologue) and never leaves the capital city.

* In ''VideoGame/HeroesMustDie'' [[BigBad Lord Murder]] leaves his base twice. It's justified both times as the first time he was the only one strong enough to fight [[BigGood Promise]] and the second time his minions had failed him twice before.

** Baraggan was like this in his backstory, too. He'd consolidated his power in Hueco Mundo so effectively that he had nothing left to do there but sit on his throne, and he was considering dividing his army in two and making them fight just to relieve his boredom. Why he didn't try attacking the Soul Reapers, the eternal enemies of the hollows, isn't addressed.

* Melac, one of the bosses in ''VideoGame/AzureStrikerGunvolt'', never even bothers to get up from his throne, even during his boss fight.
