* Wrestling/TaminaSnuka often fills this role in WWE's women's division. She's quite limited in the ring but benefits from MusclesAreMeaningful - so she can be presented as TheDreaded in order to make others look better by beating her. She has often found herself being used as a bodyguard for other title contenders.

* {{Fanfic/Nightfall}}: When Hades shows up he easily lays out Dave and Rose, and overpowers John and Vriska. With only Vriska and Dave managing to hit him. Jade steps in and brings the battle to a stalemate, and he's later whisked off by one of his "allies."

In the first act of ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', Hela quickly kills [[spoiler: Volstagg, Fandral and Hogun]] from the previous [[Film/{{Thor}} two]] [[Film/ThorTheDarkWorld movies]] to show how deadly she is.

** The first sign of just how tough a [[GiantFlyer rylo]] is in Act VI? Kurumu using her [[BadassPrincess Princess of Hell]] SuperMode doesn't even faze it.

* In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', this is what the writers were going for when they had Ronan kill The Other. Although The Other hadn't displayed much power beyond super speed in this film or ''Film/The Avengers'', he was considered to be powerful even compared with Loki, and Ronan easily kills him for annoying him so that he won't look like a wimp compared to Thanos, as well as making the Thanos scene not seem out of place.

* In the first chapter of ''WakingNightmares'', one of the Nightmare Dogs (not even a named character) nearly kills [[PhysicalGod Princess Celestia]] with one unexpected strike. In a later scene, Slenderman kills [[=RED=]] Demoman and [[=RED=]] Medic in one hit ''while they're ubercharged''. (For non-''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' players, that means they're completely invulnerable.) The Doctor is hit by a verbal version when their enemies reveal that they know who he is... and aren't the slightest bit afraid. Until then, everything that has ever faced him and survived has learned to fear The Oncoming Storm.

* ''[[Fanfic/GuardiansWizardsAndKungFuFighters Guardians, Wizards, and Kung-Fu Fighters]]'' shows that when [[OracularHead Tarakudo]] is in his [[OneWingedAngel full-bodied form]], he's basically an unstoppable PhysicalGod. The first time he takes this form, he nearly kills [[spoiler: Nimue]] and her two students, only being stopped because the unnamed GreaterScopeVillain intervenes (due to [[CantKillYouStillNeedYou still needing them alive]]).

*** Hercules is actually a strange case of WorfHadTheFlu. The Berserker class is generally regarded as a trap option, as while it greatly strengthens servants summoned under it, it ALSO tends to remove their capacity for critical thought, and disables most of their strongest abilities. The only real exceptions to this rule are people like Beowulf, who aren't truly insane but are "berserkers" in combat, or people like Kiyohime, SF!Jack, and Spartacus, who are inherently insane and must be summoned under Berserker to show their strength. Archer Hercules in Strange Fake demonstrates perfectly how much more powerful he is when he's allowed thought.
