** The HYDRA Winter Soldier team [[spoiler:are shot and killed by Helmut Zemo while in cryogenic sleep]]. For all the talk of them and how dangerous they are, they are taken out of play in a very anti-climatic manner.

* In ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'', [[GodGuise the Authority]] is set up as the ultimate source of the problems of society and the plot. But late in the series, it becomes apparent that [[DragonInChief Metatron]] is really calling the shots, while the Authority is the victim of a carriage crash, a stiff breeze, and his own old age.

* This happens on ''Series/TwentyFour'' on its first season. After the first hitman hired to kill Palmer fails, a lot of build-up is given to this new hitman hired to do the job, Alexei Drazen, he's both given a climatic entrance at the end of an episode, and is given a lot of build-up as to how well trained he is on special forces. He's taken out by his girlfriend via a stab wound in the stomach, and spends the rest of the show either unconscious or in a hospital bed. Eventually he dies without having fought anyone really.

** [[spoiler: Zemo himself, despite being a Spec Ops Colonel]] is never actually fought. Unlike other examples, that makes him more dangerous as he acknowledges he can't ever match or defeat the heroes choosing [[spoiler: to turn the Avengers against each other instead]]

** Also, when MNM split up, there was never a match between Johnny Nitro or Joey Mercury. The night the team split, both Nitro and Melina were immediately moved to Raw and Mercury remained on Smackdown. This was before any kind of grudge match could take place.

* Famously Stone Cold and Brock Lesnar. Stone Cold walked out of WWE one night when a match between him and Lesnar was scheduled for that night's Raw - feeling that such a match should not be given away on free TV. By the time he returned to WWE, he had his retirement match with The Rock because his body wasn't up to wrestling anymore. So he never fought Lesnar after all.

* ''Fanfic/ShadowsAwakening'': Tarakudo is SealedEvilInACan for the whole story, only able to act through his [[VillainTeamUp ally]] [[EnemyWithin the Queen]] [[spoiler: who ends up [[TheStarscream betraying him]] and cutting him off]], and thus is the only member of the BigBadEnsemble who never faces off with the heroes.
