* ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' has Seto Kaiba's Deck Destruction Virus of Death/Crush Card Virus, an incredibly strong card (for point of reference, [[DeFictionalization the real-life version of the card]] is [[{{Nerf}} severely weakened]]). Its effect (when a weak Dark monster is destroyed, your opponent loses all cards from their hand, field, and Deck with more than 1500 ATK and can't Summon them back) should be enough to win him any Duel... but with depressing regularity, that isn't what happens. He's attempted to use it seven times, but Amelda, Noah, Daimon, and Pegasus were able to destroy or negate it before he could use it (Pegasus even managed to take it for himself), Ishizu countered it by using Exchange of the Spirit to put her Monsters back in her Deck, and Yugi and Jounouchi were able to play around the handicap and both nearly won (Yugi would have, but Kaiba cheated). This means that, out of seven attempted uses, only one of them was a case where activating Crush Card Virus assisted Kaiba in winning a Duel (two, if you count fusing it with Critias).

Added DiffLines:

** Yugi has Chimera, the Flying Mythical Beast, which he usually plays early and which seems borderline incapable of getting a hit in or surviving the next turn. Usually, it either makes one attack that does minimal damage and then gets killed, or it gets locked down mid-battle and does nothing for the rest of the duel. It's particularly obvious, given its frightening design and easy summon condition, why this is the case - it's just strong enough to be somewhat impressive, and weak enough that any moderately powerful card can take it out easily.

* Every time GDI blows up Kane with an Ion Cannon in the ''CommandAndConquerTiberianSeries'' he always manages to survive. It's heavily implied that Kane is not human and immortal.

* Inverted with the US test of a thermonuclear bomb known as [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castle_Bravo "Castle Bravo."]] Meant to be a harmless--insomuch as nuclear weapons testing ''can'' be harmless--test of new technology on Bikini Atoll, physicists failed to predict the reactions of some of the lithium isotopes produced by the detonation, resulting in an blast 2.5 to 3 times more powerful than expected. Fallout from the device affected the crews of nearby US Navy vessels, and the populations of several nearby inhabited island; forcing evacuations, and resulting in various illnesses related to exposure to radioactive fallout. Elevated rates of cancer and birth defects persist to this day in people who were affected by the Castle Bravo test. It should probably go without saying that the last thing you ever want to hear when dealing with nuclear weapons is "[[OhCrap Oops.]]"

* {{Inverted|trope}} with Wrestling/RicFlair's figure four leg lock. When he was Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA World Heavyweight Champion, a recurring question was ''how'' he was and the joke being he had no finishing move. By the time Flair worked for the WWF, Wrestling/JimRoss would talk up Flair's figure four as being ''much'' more potent than Wrestling/BuddyRogers' and it would be treated as the most dangerous submission hold on the Monday Night Raw.

* Wrestling/RandyOrton's FiveMovesOfDoom have hit a streak where they'll usually fail or be interrupted after the third or fourth step. Either the fourth step, a hanging DDT will get reversed, or the final step, the RKO, will be escaped. That part is subverted, as when Orton wins, it's almost exclusively from an RKO, so the RKO fails that time, but succeeds later.
