* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Ducktales}}'' episode "Raider of the Lost Harp", the [[ALoadOfBull Minotaur]] [[MacGuffinGuardian guardian]] of the eponymous [[LieDetector lie detecting]] harp [[LivingStatue came to life]] after Scrooge removed it from its box and followed it all the way to Duckberg by walking along the bottom of the ocean to retrieve it. Point blank range from two torpedoes didn't so much as scratch it, military helicopters were ineffective, and even Scrooge's giant bubble gum trap couldn't hold it long. To save Duckberg, Scrooge was forced to give the Minotaur back the harp.

That's largely an urban myth with little basis in historical fact. Late-war Shermans could penetrate and destroy Tigers and Panthers from most realistic combat ranges.
** Compared to Japanese tanks, even M4 Sherman was a juggernaut; its armour was completely immune to anything the Japanese had at their disposal. On the other hand, the Americans found they had to use high-explosive ammunition against the flimsier Japanese tanks; [[NoKillLikeOverkill the anti-tank shells piereced the Japanese tanks and came out from the other side]], causing little other damage but a nasty hole. Just to make it worse, the Sherman was still the same fast, and had the same numbers that let it ZergRush larger german tanks. ** As stated above, the German tanks, especially the ''Tiger'' and the ''Tiger II'', that needed ZergRush tactics to be defeated by American Shermans.

* The gigantic [[PlanetEater Beast Planet]] in ''WesternAnimation/ShadowRaiders''. A pitch-black, indestructible metallic sphere that sleeps within stars while its Mooks find new prey. Then, it moves ever forward, intent on devouring a fresh new Planet, teeming with life. Rig your entire planet into a gun, the mere firing of which [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu kills everyone on it?]] [[SenselessSacrifice Not even a scratch.]] Use the awe-striking WaveMotionGun you built out of a Moon? Kiss [[TheWorfBarrage that Moon bye-bye]]. RammingAlwaysWorks? They tried [[SenselessSacrifice ramming an entire planet into it]]. Rig another planet to self-destruct inside it like a TimeBomb? [[BigEater Didn't even burp from the indigestion]]. Rig yet another planet so it [[TransportersAndTeleporters teleports it to the other side of the galaxy]]? [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Congratulations, you just doomed another innocent, inhabited planet who didn't even see it coming]], with the added bonus that the Beast [[MegaManning might just have assimilated that teleporter tech it just ate]]. And the Beast is ''[[ImplacableMan STILL. COMING. FOR. YOU]]''. It ''will'' get you. Not today. Maybe not tomorrow. Eventually, it will.

* ''VideoGame/SilentHill'': Pyramid Head is unstoppable that the only thing that ''can'' stop him is [[spoiler:another Pyramid Head. This is proven in the battle where there are two of them and they kill each other if you avoid them long enough.]]

* The Armored Titan from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. This unusual specimen is a 15m tall HumanoidAbomination covered in plates of thickened skin that allow it to shrug off cannon fire and just keep coming. Its first appearance involves [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0vnFRx2JUs charging and smashing]] through the internal gate of Wall Maria, an event that earns it legendary status among the survivors as an unstoppable horror.

* Ben Grimm from ''ComicBook/UltimateFantasticFour'' is much, ''much'' more imposing than his 616-incarnation. So much so that when Reed designed outfits for the team tailored to their powers he invented a new kind of shock absorber to layer in Ben's suit to act as a PowerLimiter - otherwise the mere act of ''walking around'' would shake the Baxter Building apart. It's rather telling that he managed to survive a possession attempt by Thanos - anyone else Thanos managed to possess burned out their bodies after a short time, while Ben managed to ''fight'' the Mad Titan and drive him out, leaving him just a bit winded.\\

After Creator/WarrenEllis left the title, Ben's strength was considerably toned down [[DependingOnTheWriter by the following creative teams.]] Officially, only ComicBook/{{Thor}} and [[ComicBook/SubMariner Namor]] are stronger than Ben, and that universe's version of ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk is weaker than his "mainstream" counterpart, whom Ben fought and defeated during the ''Ultimate Power'' miniseries.

It's also implied that he can survive nearly any atmosphere as his lungs can convert unsuitable "air" into something he can breathe, which Nihil discovered [[OhCrap to his great shock]]. -->'''Ben''': ''*after Nihil breached the visor on his helmet*'' Reed, this air tastes like crap. -->'''Reed''': The atmosphere in here is highly corrosive... you're basically breathing acid. -->'''Ben''': Huh.

* The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt was nicknamed ''Juggernaut'' by their pilots. The plane looked very clumsy and ungainly at first sight, and the pilots thought ''they'' were being sacrificed to fly suicide missions in those planes. When the [[LightningBruiser true nature of the plane]] became apparent, the name stuck -- only now it was the Germans and Japanese who were to face the juggernaut when they went up against the P-47. The name was then shortened affectionately to ''Jug'', as the fuselage shape resembled a milk jug.

P-47 had [[MoreDakka eight 0.50 cal machine guns]], excellent bomb carrying capacity and [[MadeOfIron good pilot and fuel tank protection and its radial engine was both reliable and durable against enemy fire]]. The later models (P-47M and P-47N) could also carry ten HVAR rockets. Oh, and did we tell you it had a two-stage supercharger (both turbocharger and mechanical supercharger), it was one of the fastest WWII propeller-driven aircraft, and could outmaneuvre almost all its opponents at high altitudes?
