** The Fel Reaver was similarly notorious, despite the ground quaking from its steps. Someone who wasn't paying attention would notice the shaking, dash wildly in a direction they can't see the reaver, and discover too late that it was approaching them from an angle and they've run right into its aggro radius.

Someone who wasn't paying attention would notice the shaking, dash wildly in a direction they can't see the reaver, and discover too late that it was approaching them from an angle and they've run right into its aggro radius. Even worse, during the beta, the Fel Reaver model was at one point accidentially switched to a much smaller black bear model.

* ''VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft'' has the Stealth ability that makes its bearer unable to be targeted until they've dealt damage. This includes the card Ogre Ninja, which is literally a very sneaky two-headed monster who is about twelve feet tall.

** ''TabletopGame/TheSpoils'' go to combat evasion ability is called "Covert." The flavor is that a Covert character knows how to get secret access to the enemy Faction, and thus a fully Covert party can only be stopped by another party of Covert characters. Of course, some Covert characters get very large. This being ''The Spoils,'' lampshades are hung on the increasingly unlikely size of Covert characters, culminating in the 12/12/3 Sneaky Mansion, a literal house that can kill most players in two hits.

* On the night of November 13/14, 1942, during [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal]], a Japanese force consisting of the battleship Kirishima, the heavy cruisers Atago and Takao, the light cruisers Sendai and Nagara, and nine destroyers, came upon an American force consisting of the battleships USS Washington and USS South Dakota, and four destroyers: USS Walke, USS Gwin, USS Benham, and USS Preston. A quarter moon ensured good visibility for the encounter. The engagement began at the range of 10.3 miles (16.6 kilometers), with Washington firing on the lead ship of the of the Japanese force, thought to be a battleship or heavy cruiser. In reality, it was the light cruiser Sendai. Both American battleships continued firing until they believed that the target had been sunk. In fact, Sendai had escaped under the cover of a smokescreen. There was a lull in the fighting, which ended as the heavy hitters of the Japanese force emerged from behind Savo Island 3.3 miles (5.3 kilometers) away from the American battleships. The Japanese ships lit up South Dakota with their searchlights. [[OhCrap Unfortunately for her, South Dakota had suffered a catastrophic electrical failure, leaving her without radar. Effectively, South Dakota was blind.]] Washington pulled further away from South Dakota as the Japanese ships began to pummel the American battleship. South Dakota took 26 hits from 5-, 6-, 8-, and 14-inch guns. [[NoSell After the battle, it was discovered that only a single shell had even damaged South Dakota's armor, and beyond denting one of the turret barbettes, did nothing.]] In the battle, Walke and Preston were both sunk, [[CoupDeGrace Benham lost her bow to a torpedo and had to be abandoned and scuttled by shellfire from Gwin, who had been escorting her,]] [[SoleSurvivor leaving Gwin the only American destroyer to return to port.]] [[SurpriseVehicle Washington]] [[WithCatlikeTread then proceeded to close from 7.2 miles (11.6 kilometers)]] [[NoIAmBehindYou to 4.8 miles away from Kirishima (7.7 kilometers)]] [[StealthExpert completely undetected.]] [[InTheBack At almost exactly midnight, Washington began to fire on Kirishima.]] [[OhCrap Washington's radar was fully operational.]] [[GunshipRescue Within the span of seven minutes, at least nine 16-inch shells from Washington's three primary turrets and at least forty 5-inch shells from Washington's secondaries struck Kirishima.]] Japanese destroyers attempted to engage Washington with their torpedoes, [[DodgeTheBullet but all missed,]] and the damage was already done. [[DelayedCasualty About four hours later, Kirishima capsized.]] Washington hadn't been hit once, the worst damage South Dakota suffered was to its pride, and three American destroyers had been sunk. Meanwhile, Japan lost one of their Capital ships which they really couldn't afford to replace, especially later, as well as two destroyers.
