** Delivered an almighty Glam Slam to the Women's Champion [[Wrestling/{{LayCool}} Michelle McCool]] and became the first person to pin her cleanly in over five months. To this day Michelle still hasn't beaten Beth cleanly.

** Played with and ultimately subverted in ''Film/JurassicWorld''; [[spoiler: the ''I. rex'' gets the upper hand and soundly trashes the old ''T. rex'', but a timely distraction from [[RaptorAttack Blue]] gives the ''T. rex'' room to recover and overpower the ''I. rex'']]. Although played straight earlier on: one of the first victims of the ''I. rex'' is an ''Ankylosaurus'', a large herbivore with an armoured shell and a heavy bone club on the end of it's tail, which gets killed very quickly and [[OffWithItsHead messily]] by the abomination.

** Muldoon takes on a T-Rex early in [[Film/JurassicPark the first film]] and holds his own, but is then easily outsmarted and killed by the ''Velociraptors'' in order to establish them as more of a threat. Ironically, the ''T. rex'' later kills the ''Velociraptors''.

** What's the best way to show how strong a villain in the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse? Make him toss some Jedi around the room with his eyes closed and one hand behind his back. What's the best way to show how serious the situation is? Kill a few Jedi. In books, games, and comics, if a Jedi isn't a protagonist, he's fucked. ''Especially'' if he happens to meet [[StarWarsLegacy Sith]], [[KnightsOfTheoldRepublic Mandalorians]], [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars Grievous]], [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars Cad Bane]], or [[Literature/NewJediOrder extra galactic invaders]].

Added DiffLines:

* In Episode 21 of Project Mouthwash's Bleach(S) Abridged, Urahara directly references the Worf Effect by explaining it to Chad as a reason for not training him. He subsequently agrees to help Chad train after being amused by Chad's comment that the Worf Effect applies perfectly to Renji.

** The true master of this trope is ''Lancer''; he is established early on as being a {{Badass}} while fighting Archer and almost kills Shiro and delivers a badass one-liner immediately following, but it's all downhill from there. In the Fate route he is [[spoiler:killed by Gilagmesh to establish how powerful he is]]. In Unlimited Blade Works he is [[spoiler: forced to kill himself by Kotomine ordering him to do so with a Command Spell]], though he does have his [[SugarWiki/MomentofAwesome chance to shine]] immediately following this. Finally in Heaven's Feel he [[spoiler: dies to establish True Assasin's cred.]] Although, his death in ''Heaven's Feel'' is because [[spoiler:Dark Sakura cornered him, meaning he would've died by either True Assassin or Dark Sakura. If Dark Sakura weren't there, True Assassin would've been gone as fast as he arrived.]]

** Volume 1 Episode 16 finally shows Roman Torchwick fighting. You know you're an established threat when you go up against someone like [[{{Badass}} Blake Belladonna]] and make a meal out of them. [[spoiler:Then turned on him soon afterwards when Penny turns up and absolutely demolishes him and his goons all by herself]].

* ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'' [[spoiler: is an example of this trope taken UpToEleven. Mordred Deschain, who was recently born (not just introduced, but actually born a few hours earlier) was able to take out Randall Flagg, Stephen King's ubervillain, within about three pages.)]]

* In ''Film/PacificRim'', when Crimson Typhoon is introduced, its impressive combat record is listed along with a description of its ace pilots. When Cherno Alpha is introduced, it's revealed that not only is it a Mark 1 Jaeger, making it the oldest still functioning, but it's the largest and heaviest Jaeger around. It's also stated that the perimeter it was assigned to went 6 years without being breached by a {{Kaiju}} attack. [[spoiler: During the Hong Kong attack, both Alpha and Crimson get to show off their skills, but are completely destroyed by the two attacking Kaiju, effectively spelling out just how dangerous they must be to eliminate such powerful Jaegers with so little effort. Gipsy Danger's ability to defeat both by itself (albeit one at a time, ''after'' they had split up) illustrates just how powerful it is, despite the rust it has in some inconvenient places.]]
