He says of himself: "I'm the first, the easiest, I'm supposed to be. I've been destroyed more times than I care to remember." He also refers to other opponents who are stronger.

* ''{{Lufia}}'' series. You beat Gades, [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu a dark god of destruction]], only for you notice there are three more powerful villains out there. In the Sinistrals BossRush, it's quite clear Gades is the least powerful mainly because he can't cast powerful spells.

* [[WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder Wander Over Yonder]] starts off with Lord Hater as the BigBad. Despite his power, Hater was childish, incompetent, insecure, short-tempered and overall more of a comedic villain than anything. In fact, by the time Season 2 rolls around, he had been upgraded to AntiHero.

** Then Season 2 brings along anew BigBad by the name of Lord Dominator. A sadistic OmnicidalManiac who wants to destroy the galaxy simply ForTheEvulz. Not only is she the first character to outright murder another sympathetic character onscreen, [[spoiler:she also basically ''succeeds'' in her plan, destroying every planet in the galaxy save one, though the planets do end up springing back to life after some time.]]

* Inverted in ''Webcomic/LsEmpire''. The first ArcVillain was a PhysicalGod who was basically invulnerable. The second one was untouchable under normal circumstances, had powerful followers and an army of {{Mook}}s but had no way to harm people by herself. The third one just had an army wielding hammers who only remained a threat because he could dimension hop at will. Their plans however played it straight (seeking power for powers sake -> conquering an entire world -> and causing a Class X-5 apocalypse).

The third one just had an army wielding hammers who only remained a threat because he could dimension hop at will. The fourth was a set of jokes who only got as far as they did because their targets kept beating them up before the main characters could get to them. [[spoiler: Played straight with the fifth and final one who was an in-universe case of OnlyTheAuthorCanSaveThemNow.]] Their plans however played it straight (seeking power for powers sake -> conquering an entire world -> and causing a Class X-5 apocalypse).apocalypse (twice) -> [[spoiler: TimeStandsStill]]).



* Lampshaded in WebVideo/TheLegendOfNeil. Wizzrobe lures Neil inot the first dungeon full of relatively weak monsters, but wonders why he didn't lead him instead to dungeon 7, which is where Ganon's strongest minions dwell.

* ''Manga/DGrayMan'' would [[JustifiedTrope justify]] this, since the Akuma all have [[EvolutionaryLevels specific Levels]]... except that, as the heroes get stronger, they start fighting higher-leveled Akuma in larger groups.

* ''Manga/DGrayMan'' would [[JustifiedTrope justify]] this, since the Akuma all have [[EvolutionaryLevels specific Levels]]... except that, as the heroes get stronger, they start fighting higher-leveled Akuma in larger groups. Partially justified as the BigBad was relatively inactive in the beginning, and they only appear in large groups when he gathers them.

* The Reverse-Flashes from ComicBook/TheFlash follow this in terms of power
** Edward Clariss/The Rival was an enemy of Jay Garrick who despite his best efforts, could not match the latter's speed.
** Eobard Thawne/Professor Zoom was not only just as fast as Barry Allen, but he learned how to gain TimeTravel and MesACrowd abilities from his speed.
** Rather than being a traditional speedster, Hunter Zolomon/Zoom had the power to slow down time. Even Wally Wast, the [[TheAce fastest of the Flashes,]] had a hard time stopping him.
** Thaddeus Thawne is not only a powerful speedster, but he stole Zoom's powers for himself and he has complete control over the individual timelines of other people.

** {{Averted}} in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''. Beerus is the first enemy the Z-Fighters face and he is so far above their level that Goku is still weaker than him even after training with Whis. Frieza is a threat after coming back to life, training, and gaining an ultimate form that surpasses Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku, but he's still weaker than Beerus and would have been no threat at all if Goku and Vegeta worked together. His army is also easily defeated by the Z-Fighters who included Master Roshi and were missing several of their heavy-hitters like [[WrittenInAbsence Buu, Android 18]], and Gotenks only appears for a short time. In the Champa Saga, while there is no villain per say, only Hit on the U6 team poses a threat to Goku and Vegeta in their god forms, and strength-wise he is at best a little above Golden Frieza. Skill-wise, however, he is far more dangerous. Champa himself may be a little weaker than Beerus, but he is still far above any of the heroes since he was ready to murder [[spoiler: the entire U6 team]] despite all the power they showed and Goku is helpless to do anything about it. The next ArcVillain, Copy-Vegeta, is as strong as Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Vegeta, which makes him on par with Golden Frieza and Hit. Even in just in his base, Copy-Vegeta is leagues above Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks, [[WorfEffect who can't even harm him]]. In the Future Trunks Saga, [[spoiler: Goku Black]] is said to be only as strong as Super Saiyan 3 Goku. However, Black is able to improve rapidly much like Hit, and by the time Goku and Vegeta confront him in the future he is able to go toe-to-toe with Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Vegeta. [[spoiler: Then it's revealed that he has a Super Saiyan form, Super Saiyan Rose, which he uses to strike down Vegeta with one blow and he's ''still'' getting stronger. To make matters worse for the heroes, they also have to deal with Future Zamasu who is almost even with Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku and an immortal]].It gets taken UpToEleven for the final four episodes of the arc where Black and Future Zamasu [[spoiler: perform a Potara Earring Fusion to create Merged Zamasu, who delivers an effortless CurbStompBattle to Goku, Vegeta, and Trunks all at once, ''all at their full power'', forcing ''Vegito'' to make a return appearance to stand a chance against him, although it's still unclear whether he's any stronger than Beerus]].

Then it's played horrifyingly straight for the first time ever when Merged Zamasu loses his physical form and becomes an insane EldritchAbomination with the ability to ''consume the entire future multiverse and break time to the point where he can devour the present timeline as well'', something that Beerus could never hope to achieve (nor desire to achieve), and '''nothing''' hurts him anymore. Nothing except the TopGod himself, Zeno-sama.]]
