* Robots in the ''Franchise/{{Fallout}}'' games. By Fallout 4 it's been more than 200 years since the war that destroyed civilization, but you'll still find plenty of Mr Handies and Securitrons operating at full power despite a lack of access to any apparent fuel sources. Ghouls, despite being alive, are occasionally treated this way as well: there are multiple instances in the game where you'll encounter feral ghouls that have been trapped inside a room without a food source since the bombs fell, and they're still very active.

* [[Characters/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Drax the Destroyer]] was originally created specifically to kill {{Main/Thanos}}. His [[ArtificialHuman artificial body]] doesn't need to eat, drink, sleep, or breathe, doesn't age, is incredibly difficult to seriously injure, and if destroyed, regenerates from his own remains (or from the soil where he was originally created, if there isn't enough of his former body left). Unfortunately, in the decades since Drax's original creation, Thanos has had [[PowerCreepPowerSeep several power-ups]], reducing Drax from his oringal "grim avenger" status to a perpetual ''annoyance'' (for Thanos, not his [[MookHorrorShow minions]]). These days, he doesn't even rank among the Mad Titan's top ten enemies (though he did [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome manage to score the coup de grâce]] during {{ComicBook/Annihilation}}).

For extra threat, the Perpetual Motion Monster is also usually unaffected by dismemberment (except for the "annoyance" of a lost limb, though a [[AppendageAssimilation needle and thread can solve that]]). For extra ''extra'' threat, it's also a SuperPersistentPredator; since being a Perpetual Motion Monster means it doesn't actually need to eat [[EatingOptional except for the pleasure of it]], it can afford to go to the ends of the Earth in pursuit of that one tasty hero-sized morsel.

* ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' manages to provide an ''heroic'' example in Xadhoom: having effectively turned herself in a star in a humanoid body, her immense powers never run out, and to make things worse she can come back from ''complete disintegration''. She qualifies for the 'monster' part by being a HumanoidAbomination (something she's all too conscious of), and for being out to commit ''genocide'' on the [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Evronians]] for [[GenocideBackfire destroying her homeworld and her race]].

* Most dragons in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' require external sources of mana (like with Kanna plugging her tail into a power socket), but Tohru and Lucoa are both capable of generating their own. Other dragons are capable of using the mana that Tohru radiates, but Ilulu states that it tastes awful.

** It is later revealed that this is because [[spoiler:they [[WasOnceAMan were]] gems but have been [[TheCorruption corrupted]]]].

* For ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' foe Juggernaut, this is basically his power (mystical power in the comics, mutant power in the movie).
