* Following CaptainTsubasa, ''InazumaEleven'' is even moreso at using this trope, especially the third season, where special shots and blocks rarely work past 4-5 times without geting evolved or replaced with another and more destructive skill.
* ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'' was actually quite infamous with its use of TheWorfBarrage, as the second their old attacks don't work, they immediately get new ones to compensate that.
* Combining TheWorfEffect with TheWorfBarrage, we got ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'''s first meeting between Cure Blossom and Marine with the Dark Precure. At the time, the two's ultimate attack was the Floral Power Fortissimo, which was a tag team attack. When the Dark Precure showed up and the girls haul it out, not only does she reveal that she can do it, too, she can do it solo, can counter the girls' and during their BeamTugOfWar, she brings out a new attack to put them on their backsides.

** Earlier in the series Genos (who most often subjected to WorfEffect), after launching unsuccessfull attack at Ashura Rhino, tries to blast him with enormous beam of fire. In response, Asura just [[CherryTapping exhales]], blowing the fire back.

** Full powered King Punch supposedly can annihilate entire fortress in one blow, but didn't make even a scratch on [[BarrierWarrior Bartolomeo's]] barrier.

* The one battle in which you control General Leo against Kefka in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' also doubles as a WorfBarrage. Similarly, the battle on the floating island witnessed between the Emperor and Kefka, the Emperor's Esper-powered Merton/Meltdown serves as a WorfBarrage by having Kefka shrug off the most damaging spell in the game.
** It's not that he shrugs it off, at least not in the English version. Instead, he's standing in a magic null zone. But then, Kefka is significantly less cool in the original Japanese version anyway.

Mind you, it's not that he just takes it, but rather that he's standing in a magic null zone.

** Justified for Seiya in particular. His Pegasus Ryuusei Ken isn't so much a powerful blow as throwing more punches in an instant, so any enemy tough enough to NoSell the first has a head start on [[PunchPunchPunchUhOh withstanding them all]]... and many Saints have enough SuperSpeed to [[OhCrap dodge or block the whole barrage]]. The move [[FridgeLogic could almost have been designed for this trope]], in case RuleOfDrama wasn't enough.

* [[TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden]] has often suffered from this, where his spell would blow the living Hell out of the enemy, only to have it shake it off and come back at him. In ''Fool Moon'' [[spoiler: he blasts the loup-garou through the wall of the police station and ''the entirety of the neighboring building'', only to have it let out a howl of irritation]]. Some of the older and more powerful faeries from ''Summer Knight'' and ''Proven Guilty'' are almost entirely immune to magical attacks. A good example is in ''Dead Beat'' where [[spoiler: Harry flips a car over on top of Cowl, who then gets up with no more effort than John Wayne recovering from a sucker punch that kicks off a bar fight]]. The ''Turn Coat'' has [[spoiler:Harry against Shagnasty, an uberpowerful, shapeshifter. He uses not one, but all eight of his kinetic energy storing rings, which are made of 3 bands a piece. Just one band has enough force to knock a man off his feet. Do the math. He fires it at Shagnasty who just raises a hand and deflects it at one of Harry's allies. Yeah. Shagnasty wasn't one to tangle with.]]

*** Though to Vegeta's credit, Cell actually says that if he hadn't sidestepped at the last second so the Final Flash didn't hit him head-on, it would've killed him.

to:

*** Though The BeamSpam technique worked approximately ''ONCE'': when Vegeta used a version of it to interrupt the regeneration of (and fully destroy) Metal Cooler in the sixth DBZ movie after he and Goku had shredded his body with a united punch. Unfortunately, it turned out that was just an avatar of Cooler (who promptly spawned several hundred more), so technically the move went right back to never working.

[[spoiler:Said chapter is the 23rd chapter, and said enemy is Hades, the true BigBad of the game. The Three Sacred Treasures were used in the original ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'' and Chapter 9 of ''Uprising'' to kill Medusa...and not only do they do absolutely no damage to Hades, he ''destroys'' them!]]
