*** Judging by how often Krillin's Destructo Disk evokes a last-minute OhCrap response from his targets, it likely wouldn't fall victim to TheWorfBarrage if it weren't for the fact that he has such a hard time actually ''hitting'' them with it.

** The spinoff series ''Dragon Ball GT'' ended up subverting this. The Universal Spirit Bomb just did what it supposed to do, blowing up Omega Shenron without much of a struggle. Both instances of the attack actually working, were on beings of PureEvil, and since it's supposedly made for destroying evil, it might just be kind of... [[AttackItsWeakPoint literal]].

* In ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'', [[spoiler:Tesset's]] most powerful attack gets an entire paragraph of build-up and then another paragraph to describe the aftermath. His opponent doesn't even flinch.

* In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' Ronan is completely unphased by the Hadron Enforcer (a badass energy missile which can "destroy moons", or at the very least, a spaceship). He completely absorbs the attack despite a direct hit to the chest.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E26TwilightsKingdomPart2 Twilight's Kingdom, Part 2]]", in a curious example of ''both'' sides of a fight using this, neither Twilight nor Tirek (each more powerful than ever before) can do any damage to the other during their huge, epic battle scene.

** Another example is during the [[Franchise/DragonBall Goku]] vs. Franchise/{{Superman}} fight. You'd think that after absorbing the energy of a Spirit Bomb to power his [[KamehameHadoken Kamehameha]], Goku would defeat Superman quite handily, but Superman just powers through the beam of Ki like it's nothing.

It helps that Superman took that time bathing in the sun itself to get his own power-up, however.



** [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Charizard's]] Blast Burn is one of the most powerful attacks in Pokemon, being the fire-element equivalent of a Hyper Beam, but [[Franchise/{{Digimon}} Wargreymon]] come out of it without so much as a scratch.

** ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk unleashes his signature [[ShockwaveClap Thunderclap]] move nearly point-blank in [[Frachise/{{Superman}} Doomsday's]] face, but at best all it does is disorient Doomsday before he grabs Hulk's hands and breaks one of them.

* Conqueror's Haki is supposed to be the rarest Haki that appears one-in-a-million. Despite supposedly indicating qualities of a king it's main purpose to knock out numerous mooks. While still relatively impressive, most major characters have strong enough willpower to shrug it off.

* In part 3 of Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure, Kakyoin's "Emerald Splash" attack takes this role. It is supposedly an extremely powerful attack, but Kakyoin never manages to use it to simply succesfully attack an opponent. In his fight against Jotaro, Star Platinum is strong enough to block it with his arms. Tower of Gray is fast enough to dodge it (although Kakyoin does use this to bait his opponent into a trap). And DIO can [[spoiler:stop time to dodge the attack before killing Kakyoin]]. There are only two times where the attack successfully hits its target, and neither of them are an enemy: one is when he fires it at his friend Polnareff to knock him out of the way of an enemy's attack, and the other is when [[spoiler:he shoots a clock tower as a DyingClue which allows his allies to deduce that DIO's power is to stop time]].
