** Thog, being a half-orc, has what even for him should be a freakishly high number of hit points, and is extremely skilled at fighting, mostly because he just beats the crap out of anything that comes near him - especially when he's [[HulkingOut raging]]. In their initial fight, Elan only subdues him with an illusion of a pretty girl half-orc, which frightens Thog into surrendering. The second time around, he's only stopped by V's Hold Person spell (but in that fight he wasn't really doing much, outside of [[TheDoorSlamsYou hitting Haley with a door]]). [[spoiler:And when he reappears in the Empire of Blood, Roy has to drop an entire ceiling on him to stop him. And we don't even know if that killed him - Tarquin later says that he refuses to work with Thog because he's a loose cannon, not because he's dead.]]

* Creator/HPLovecraft's Great Old Ones are immortal and undying (that is not dead which can eternal lie, and so on). While it's possible to damage them, they regenerate any damage nearly instantaneously. In ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'', Cthulhu got rammed in the face with a boat and suffered no permanent harm. In the work of another mythos-writer he's suffered a direct hit from a 300 megaton nuclear warhead and wasn't even slowed down, and in one mythos-themed RPG, rules state that if he is hit by a nuclear attack he gets vaporized, but reassembles 24 hours later and becomes radioactive! (Apparently, the only thing worse than an EldritchAbomination is a ''radioactive'' one.)

** Charlotte Linlin, also known as Big Mom, one of the Four Emperors. Ever since she was ''five years old'', nothing has been able to get between her and something she wants to eat whenever she gets one of her horrific hunger pangs. She'll mindlessly devour furniture, walls, innocents, powerful and legendary Elbaf giant heroes and ''her own children'' and none of these will even slow her down until she's finally had a big enough meal. Any individual pissing her off without food being involved will cause about the same effect, except whoever's in the way will get their souls ripped out or simply vaporized with a single swat of her hand instead of eaten.

* Another Franchise/CthulhuMythos example would be the Hounds of Tindalos. Immortal creatures, dwelling in the ''angles'' of time who relentlessly hunt down anyone who attracts their attention. They use corners and other angles to access our plane of existence, and the only thing that ''might'' slow them down would be to plaster over the corners to make them into curves (which they can't access). But you'd better get ''all'' the angles.

When she breaks out and starts marching toward Canterlot, the present Knights repeatedly face her on terrains specifically chosen and prepared for the fight, with Celestia and Luna keeping Flame of Annihilation at 80% of her powers... And in the first encounter don't even ''slow her down''. Or get noticed, for that matter. They fare progressively better in the following encounters thanks to taking advantage of what they've learned fighting her, but they almost kill themselves through sheer exhaustion and [[spoiler:[[BeyondTheImpossible she stands back up after suffering the destruction of her heart, something a magic user cannot possibly survive]]]]. And getting her attention can be lethal. As a reviewer put it:

** Then, when Flames of Annihilation went all out and broke the suppression on her power, we have what stopped her: [[spoiler:Pinkie Pie finally getting the hang of her Emotion Charge and focusing on anger, before bulldozing right through her flames in spite of [[AnArmAndALeg losing a foreleg and a back leg]] and stopping her in her tracks with a punch, followed by a flurry of chaos magic-infused punches, that doubled when her legs regenerated, until Flames of Annihilation just turned into dust, shrugging off Flames' heat as she attacked]].

* In UsefulNotes/TheNapoleonicWars, France was so ludicrously powerful compared to it's neighbours that it basically bulled apart continent-wide coalitions on five separate occasions. It took twenty years of no-holds-barred total war, being starved by the Royal Navy, and a disastrous campaign in Russia to finally bring her down.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' games, the Redguards have a deity, [=HoonDing=], whose entire sphere is to be this concept. The [=HoonDing=] manifests itself whenever the Redguards need to "make way" for themselves, and takes on the form of either a person or weapon that cannot be stopped from breaking through whatever seemingly-impossible obstacles are barring the way for the Redguards. Thankfully for those the Redguards have fought, the [=HoonDing=] has only had to manifest a few times throughout history, usually to save the Redguards from impending annihilation.
