* Also see the various {{Beam Spam}}s and {{Macross Missile Massacre}}s in ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. This has more to do with Attenborough's tendency to outright ''miss'' than any lack of power, though.

** Happens in ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' ''all the time'', almost to the point of making this trope [[DiscreditedTrope discredited]] all by itself. Seriously, you guys saw Simon not only survive devastating attacks, but also lay down serious ass-beatings in return, so you'd think that his teammates would show a little more faith in his durability.

* ''Series/{{Angel}}''. When the Beast makes its appearance in "Apocalypse Nowish", the Fang Gang hit it with everything they have - axes, swords, crossbows, wooden stakes, GunsAkimbo pistols and finally a shotgun. None of it works and the Beast thrashes the lot of them.

*** Subverted in the first pilot, ''The Cage''. When an species of [[MasterOfIllusion masters of illusion]] kidnap Captain Pike, the ''Enterprise'' crew makes several attempts to force their way into the aliens' base. Physically forcing the door fails, and so does blasting the it with multiple, increasingly powerful phaser salvos. Finally, they decide to hit it with the Starfleet version of field artillery; all to seemingly no effect. After Pike forces the aliens to drop their illusions, the charred ruins both the entrance and the surrounding landscape are revealed.

* ''OnePiece''. Despite being the fandom's favorite attack, Luffy's [[RapidFireFisticuffs Gomu Gomu no Gattling]] seems to mainly be good for dispatching mooks. When used on a main villain, they'll either shrug it off, negate it through Logia abilities, or dodge it and remark how Luffy "didn't grow any extra arms". It's even been blocked by [[spoiler: Usopp]]. Even variants of the technique such as Storm and Jet Gattling start to become degraded.

* In the classic SpiderMan story ''Nothing Stops The Juggernaut'', Spidey tries increasingly destructive methods to stagger the unstoppable X-men foe, culminating with blowing up a tanker truck of gasoline. Juggernaut is unharmed, and now [[InfernalRetaliation on fire.]]

* As a tribute to ''DragonBallZ'', ''SuperMarioBrosZ'' hasn't shied away from this trope. The Bowser battle featured a full-on KamehameHadoken-worthy Fireball attack from Mario that didn't even make a scratch on Metal Bowser. And during the early stages of the Mecha Sonic battle on Yoshi's Island, Axem Red decides to try out his "secret weapon," a {{BFG}} that unleashes a WaveMotionGun-worthy blast that turns out not to have worked on him, just before the BigBad lays into him with an Akuma-style Raging Demon and a KamehameHadoken of his own to finish him.
* Naturally, Creator/TeamFourStar poked fun at [[WebOriginal/DragonBallZAbridged the Spirit Bomb's]] ineffectiveness.

** Saitama was on the other end of this against Boros the first time he hit him, as Boros was the first opponent he'd fought that could keep going after one punch. Downplayed, since each attack still did considerable damage to him, just not enough to finish him off.

* ''YesPrettyCure5'' made a point early on of establishing [[PlayingWithFire Cure Rouge]] and [[MakingASplash Cure Aqua]] as being a ''particularly'' tough duo. The reason for this seems to have been to allow the writers to easily create OhCrap moments by showing Rouge Fire ([[MidSeasonUpgrade or Rouge Burning]] [[SoLastSeason or Fire Strike]]), Aqua Stream (or Aqua Tornado or Sapphire Arrow), or [[AllYourColorsCombined the combination thereof]] failing to do anything to the enemy.

* [[Manga/OnePunchMan Lord Boros]] shows two of these during his fight with Saitama: His Meteoric Burst and his Collapsing Star Roaring Cannon. The Meteoric Burst is a [[MagicEmpowering Self-Empowering]] DangerousForbiddenTechnique much like Goku's Kaioken, while the [[{{Kamehadouken}} Collapsing Star Roaring Cannon]] is a planet-busting beam fired while in the previous form. Of course, this being [[ComicallyInvincibleHero Saitama]], neither manages to do any harm to him (even when he uses the power of the Meteoric Burst to knock Saitama to '''the moon'''), and in fact he splits the CSRC with a [[CallingYourAttack "Serious Series" Punch]], which Boros claims wasn't even a fraction of his true strength.
