** The EU version of the PS1 remake, Final Fantasy Anthology, which holds both [=FF4=] and [=FF5=], has a hint appearing during Cecil's fight, outright saying "A TRUE PALADIN... WOULD SHEATHE HIS SWORD." And Cecil has the Dark-ability in that version too, but since it's highly flawed, most players don't realize that's the way to beat him.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' episode "The Troll", Wander and Sylvia are roped into helping the Baa-hallans defend their food supply from a troll. The creature starts out small, but grows larger and stronger as he riles up the Baa-hallans with his insults, until soon he's an unstoppable giant. But Wander just ignores him, and when everyone else follows suit he shrinks back to his original harmless size.

* In one of the rororotfuchs book backcover comics, the fox "battles" (a slightly out-of-character) Franchise/Superman who boasts he will win against anyone. He lists up all his superpowers but the fox repeats "Not against me". Finally, Superman desperately asks "How?". The fox refers to this trope and just walks away with his buddies, leaving a dumbfounded Superman.

* In a WhatIf story of ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' Paperinik and the US Army were confronted by the newest breed of Evronian {{Super Soldier}}s, who were strong enough to tear tanks apart, tough enough that nothing less than heavy ordnance could kill them, fast enough to dodge that, and had an accelerated version of the Evronian EmotionEater metabolism that allowed them to feed on the hate and fear of those who opposed them. [[EvilGloating Due the first one to appear having bragged about them having been based on Angus Fangus (a journalist with an uncanny talent for spotting the worst in people)]], Paperinik was able to realize the last part and got the soldiers to simply stand down, resulting in the Evronian super soldiers ''instantly'' starving and dying.

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' Snow's Eidolon, Shiva, cannot be defeated by attacks. The only way to win being to hold back and tank enough damage to impress it before times runs out and it kills the group.
