* The main reason many bullies prefer to torture people weaker than them is because they know they'd get their asses stomped in a real fight.

* North Korea is seen as this by most of the world's major powers. Mouthy, underdeveloped, poor, and constantly attempting to show off how powerful its military is (despite many soldiers being starving, having decades-obsolete equipment, and poorly trained), the only country that takes it as any sort of serious threat is South Korea, because the two are right next to each other.

* The first boss of ''[[Franchise/GundamExpandedUniverse Gundam Breaker 3]]'' is [[MeaningfulName Tiger]], piloting what can only be described as a Zeonic chimera. Most fans know that the appearance of larger Zeon mobile suits is a bit of an OhCrap moment, especially if you realize that its base frame is a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Sazabi]]. He talks a big game and tries to intimidate you while fighting, but as it turns out he's really just a seal-clubber who picks on newbies for easy wins. Misa even calls him out on this and offers to face him, but he shows his yellow streak and refuses to fight her--and after seeing how his big, slow mobile suit and its telegraphed, easily avoidable attacks has a hard time against your MookMobile StarterEquipment, it's not hard to see why.

''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Bulk Biceps. He's surprisingly sensitive, in spite of his brawny physique; In "Rainbow Falls", he starts crying after Fluttershy accidentally hit him in the face with a horseshoe.

* The [[SmallNameBigEgo Batarian Hegemony]] in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' is said to be this. They're a rogue state that's essentially Space North Korea, and the only way they can effectively war with anyone is hiring terrorists and pirates to launch proxy attacks on human colonies, which caused the Skyllian Blitz and the Battle of Torfan. Though in the past they annexed an independent asari colony and shelled a salarian planet, by the time ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' rolls around they're the first race to be [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomped by the Reapers]], though considering it's ''[[EldritchAbomination the Reapers]]'' it goes without saying.



* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' (PS3) has a skit where Flynn is cooking, and when they rely on Estelle to change cooking duty to her, she gives out a shout of determination that she won't let everyone down... only when she approaches Flynn, he tells her that the food will be ready. Estelle does nothing but nods as she weakly steps away from him.



* Cerberus from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' (Yes, ''[[{{Hellhound}} that]]'' Cerberus). True he's a fierce three-headed monster ''quite literally from Tartarus'' that's the size of the average house, but all it takes to tame him is a belly rub and a friendly game of fetch.

* From ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutronBoyGenius'', Nick Dean. He's the ultimate cool dude, the girls all dig him, and he's supposed to be tough. His part of the plan is to take care of the BigBad while the others rescue their parents. One look at [[{{Kaiju}} his competition]], though, and he {{screams like a little girl}}.

* ''Manga/OnePunchMan'': King, the fourth-strongest hero (his rank was given on the basis of singlehandedly defeating several high-tier enemies), an unflappable giant who only needs to show up to terrify lesser monsters with his DeathGlare (augmented by a triple scar over his eye) and BadassArmFold, assuming they didn't hear the unceasing pounding of the King Engine and run away. His PowerLevel caused the recording device to fail (like Saitama's and a nonpowered guy). On top of all that, he's an awesome gamer, once defeating 30 opponents in a row including a former pro gamer. [[spoiler:He's a completely normal person who simply happened to be nearby when Saitama destroyed said high-tier enemies and was thought to be the winner, as Saitama hadn't registered with the Hero Association yet). His frozen expression comes from it being the only way he can prevent himself from displaying the pants-wetting terror he feels, keeps his arms crossed because he doesn't know what to do with them, and the "King Engine" is just his unusually-loud heartbeat (in the anime, represented by big drums), which is always beating in panic because he's well aware of how easily he could be found out. The power-measuring device fails when the levels are too high and too low, the designer just misattributed the cause in his and Saitama's case. He is a very good gamer though.]]
