* Spoofed in ''ComicBook/RatMan'' when the title character is faced with the Guardian, a HeroKiller robot he has no chance to beat... And opens a book, knowing that the act will summon Memetic!ChuckNorris for a team-up. The Guardian is promptly one-shotted, with the onlookers unable to believe what just happened.

* When he's not being used as a villain, this is the major role played by Creator/MarvelComics character ComicBook/{{Galactus}} -- the Comicbook/FantasticFour have summoned him to defeat cosmic villains like the Sphinx, his rogue herald Terrax, Hyperstorm, and Abraxas, and various space-based franchises have used the character for this as well.

* Umar is the sister of Dormammu, the Lord of the Dark Dimension. When she confronted Comicbook/DoctorStrange, he, on advice of the Ancient One (his mentor) freed the demon Zom to oppose her. Now, Umar is... pretty bad-ass. She and her brother are the only survivors of the race of energy beings, the Faltine, mainly because they destroyed all the others. She rules the ''bad'' half of the Dark Dimension, which is why she is pretty ornery most of the time. She once bedded the Hulk and... exhausted him to the point where he turned back to Bruce Banner and couldn't Hulk out again. She cracked the world in half rather than travelling around it to get to the Ancient One, the Sorceror Supreme and therefore the most powerful magician in the world, and defeated him soundly. ''That's'' how bad-ass she is. When she clapped eyes on the unleashed Zom - who automatically homes in on the most powerful magic-user in the vicinity - she fled like a startled deer, declaring she wouldn't leave the Dark Dimension ever again. Of course, Zom was in turn just as scared of the Living Tribunal, but the latter wasn't ''summoned'', so he doesn't count.

* In ''X-Men Apocalypse'', the titular [[BigBad Big Bad]] spends his time on-screen curbstomping whomever is not on his side. Then [[spoiler: Jean Grey unleashes the [[OhCrap Phoenix]] and obliterates him, prompting him to admire her as she rips him to pieces.]]

* The final issue of ''Aliens: Life and Death'' has the luckless human characters targeted by a [[PhysicalGod very angry, heavily armed Engineer]] who their weapons can't hurt, so what do they do? Well, as one of their number is now [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong host to a fetal Queen alien]], they entice the full-grown [[MonsterIsAMommy Alien Queen]] into [[MamaBear protecting its offspring]] by ripping said Engineer apart...

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': In "The Dark Age", Jenny is possessed by a body-hopping demon called Eyghon, who can't be forcibly exorcised without killing her. To get around this, the Scoobies trick Eyghon into jumping into Angel, a vampire. In the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Buffyverse]], vampires are effectively corpses possessed by demons; the demon already inhabiting Angel's body makes short work of Eyghon.

** This is the whole idea of creating the Slayer. Fight super-strong vampires and demons by creating a good guy who is even stronger.

** ''The Return of the King'' has the capital city of Gondor under attack by a BadassArmy of evil orcs and trolls. Fortunately for the good guys, Aragorn gets an ArmyOfTheDead to come to the rescue. Given that there's no (known) way to defeat the undead, some consider this a DeusExMachina outcome.
