** Often a villain or MonsterOfTheWeek meant to serve as fodder for a MidSeasonUpGrade SuperMode is this, necessitating the upgrade in the first place by [[NoSell walking through every attack used on it]]. A stand example include Killer Ghost from ''Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger'' which not only shrugs attacks from the heroes weapons, they actually break against it.
** Character specific example in form of ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'' with the BigBad Dokoku. While he plays OrcusOnHisThrone for most of the series when does finally get up both TheStarscream Akumaro (whom was a DragonInChief till he revealed his own agenda) and the Shinkengers are powerless against him, and it's revealed the only reason he has defeated them is because he dries up quickly when not submerged in the Sanzu River. [[spoiler: When he pulls a reluctant DevourTheDragon]] this weakness is removed leaving the only thing with a chance of stopping him a unique sealing kanji, but [[spoiler: the sacrifice of the minion in question made him immune to it]] which for series purposes made him indestructible, when human sized at least, except for [[spoiler: a [[AchillesHeel weakspot]] he absorbed his minion into which was also what made him immune to the seal.]]






* ''Series/TheFlash2014'''s version of [[KillerGorilla Grodd]]. While dangerous enough with his PsychicPowers as a physical threat he is for all purposes of the series unbeatable. In his first encounter with the Flash he caught a supersonic punched that had earlier been used to defeat a NighInvulnerable villain and ever subsequent blow on him had no effect until the Flash throw him in front of a subway train. Even this only inconvenienced him as he was pushed to another location, getting hit by the train didn't do any real damage. When he reappears in Season 2 the Flash is just as powerless against him [[spoiler: and Grodd is only stopped by sending him to a parallel Earth where he'll be happy and won't hurt anybody]].



** [[spoiler:The Meta gets nerfed the next he shows up, losing all the powers he [[PowerCopying copied]] along with the AIs in an EMP blast. He is STILL tough enough to massacre Agent Washington or take out Tex one-on-one. He survives several slashes from a knife, along with said knife being thrown into his chest, being stabbed by an Energy Sword, and four shotgun blasts. The only thing that manages to kill him is being dragged off of a cliff.]]

In season 12 when his armor is found it's revealed that while he did die, the fall itself didn't kill him and he only died because the Energy Sword left holes in armor for water to seep in causing him to drown.]]



* Archimonde, the BigBad of ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} III'', becomes the Juggernaut for the last half a minute of the game's final mission. He charges at you, [[MookMaker summoning demons into your base]], casting a spell that [[OneHitKill kills everything with one hit]], and blasting everything with a powerful attack. However, the mission is won at this point, since he can't get to the end of the course you are defending in the remaining time.

He charges at you, [[MookMaker summoning demons into your base]], casting a spell that [[OneHitKill kills everything with one hit]], and blasting everything with a powerful attack. While he's not impossible to kill, it is very difficult because he has a special armor type that causes him to only take one point of damage from anything that doesn't have a rare type of attack damage and nothing you can build naturally has it, it literally DeathByOfAThousandCuts a half dozen times over to stop him. However, the mission is won at this point, since he can't get to the end of the course you are defending in the remaining time.



** CommandAndConquerRedAlert has Monster (or Super) Tanks in one mission on The Aftermath. If they're attack you, you're already too late to reach the objective building, because they've destroyed it. Until then, watch these remodelled Mammoth Tank crush multiple Soviet bases. They also have an in-built Iron Curtain and may explode like nukes. Even if you could fight them before the mission becomes [[unwinnable]] and protected your War Factory and Construction Yard from destruction (near-impossible in this mission) you'd have no chance.

** Vanilla ''Red Alert 3'' had a campaign exclusive example with the [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Shogun Executioner]], a HumongousMecha dwarfing any unit or building that can normally built. It can easily destroy Tier 3 armor units in a few attacks, have has far more health than anything else and has a special attack that instantly destroys everything caught in a radius that extends somewhat beyond the player's line of sight. The mission where it's introduced has the player using it to wing in place of building an army when it reappears it's mentioned it cut a path of destruction across the Soviet Union with nothing able to stop it. Part of this however comes from it being designed specifically to be used against the Soviets as their [[ShockAndAwe telsa weapons]] heal it back to full health instead of damaging it, and they [[ShootingSuperman keep sending them at it anyways]].

* Rare heroic example with [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Metroplex]] in ''VideoGame/TransformersFallOfCybertron''. When aiding the outnumbered Autobots against the Decepticons he spends the entire level getting shot at which has no effect on him. Getting blasted in the face by a WaveMotionGun only temporally knocks him out, when he gets back up he proves such a big threat that Decepticons avoid attacking the Autobots' base in Iacon for the rest of the game.



* ''WebOriginal/AtopTheFourthWall'' often has a BigBad in this role.
** Mechakara. Before he was introduced all threats could be dealt with by Linkara's CoolGun, but he has an AdaptiveAbility that renders the gun useless against him, along with any other attack. To add to this as his a robot he's physically much stronger than Linkara and is only stopped when he's remotely hacked giving Linkara a chance to destroy him with a {{BFG}}.
** [[EvilOverlord Lord Vyce]]. While Linkara's [[Series/PowerRangersZeo Zeonizer]] is recharging after a fight with an upgraded Mechakara when he decides to face himself, he is able to completely NoSell the BFG, which even the upgraded Mechakara was phased by even with his upgrades letting him adapt to it. Using a [[Series/DoctorWho sonic screwdriver]] also has no effect on him, and he's only driven off when Linkara steals one of his own weapons and uses it on him [which only bothered him because he can't survive in our dimension without his suit and he can't afford to let it get damaged to his belief he is the only one who can stop [[EldritchAbomination The Entity]]. Linkara admits that even if his Zeonizer was charged he wouldn't have been able to defeat him. [[spoiler:Vyce is only defeated when he's sent remotely from his ship is cut off and it still takes the entire cast to bring him down.]]
** The Entity/[[spoiler: [[VideoGame/Pokemon Missing Number]].]] Vyce's belief that he was the only one that could kill it turns out to not be unfounded as when Linkara finally does face he has no way of hurting it. It even considered Vyce to be nothing more than a nuisance, though how true that is up to the audience interpretation since it admits he could hurt it, only hiding from him because it was more convenient to manipulate Linkara into defeating him. Linkara not only admits that he can't defeat it with the weapons he has, but also that he could never invent something that could. [[spoiler: The Entity is only stopped when Linkara [[BreakThemByTalking deconstructs its goals]] [[DrivenToSuicide drives it to kill itself.]]



** The ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures'' episode "Rock of Rages" has the cast trying to figure out how to stop an unstoppable {{Golem}}.

** The ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures'' episode "Rock of Rages" has the cast trying to figure out how to stop an unstoppable {{Golem}}. A helicopter falls on it when it throws jeep does nothing. An army assembled carrying anti-tank weaponry, flamethrowers and tanks stands in its way? It blows through all of them with no difficulty. The only confirmed way to destroy it is to use the stone that brought it to life.

* [[spoiler:Four-beast]] from ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' is prime example -- not only he huge and powerful, but also have the ability to move force of the punch through his body and redirect it back at the opponent, which makes him nearly unbeatable. And if you somehow manage to harm him - [[HealingFactor he regenerates limbs in the span of seconds]]. It takes monster, made of pure appetite energy created by [[CombinationAttack combined hunger of all four kings]] to finally put him down.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'': The Hunters, who were GlassCannons in ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', have become this in the later games, especially in ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'', where they are outright {{Lightning Bruiser}}s who are very difficult to hit in their weak points, take buckets of damage, and will chase you down and OneHitKill melee you once you get close, if their Fuel Rod Cannons don't kill you first.

* In Creator/TerryBrooks' ''[[Literature/MagicKingdomOfLandover Witches' Brew]],'' Ben and Willow are attacked by an unstoppable mechanical man created by Nightshade and Mistaya. Ben doesn't have time to summon the Paladin and is only saved by the Ardsheal, who is killed in the process. The chapter where it appears is named, appropriately, "Juggernaut".

* Arima from ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' can ([[HeroKiller and does]]) [[OneManArmy mop the floor with just about everyone who goes up against him]]. He's basically known to everyone in the cast as a [[HopelessBossFight nigh-unstoppable killing machine]]/force of nature [[ImplacableMan who can casually dodge, parry, or shrug off everything anyone can throw at him.]] [[TheDreaded He terrifies everyone]], and only the most powerful ghoul recorded in history has managed to last seriously in a fight with him more than about thirty seconds.
