* Starting in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'', when there were multiple playable characters, Apollo becomes a downplayed version of this, being the first of the main lawyers to have to face the game's main prosecutor and demonstrate how good a prosecutor they are. Downplayed in that he does end up beating them in the end, but it is still a very close victory in both cases.

** Dauntless is a superhero who is able to imbue items with power. InUniverse, it is speculated that he will one day be able to surpass [[WorldsStrongestMan the Triumvirate]]. So naturally he is TooPowerfulToLive and [[spoiler:bites it fighting Leviathan.]]

*** [[YMMV]] The Spartans revered Ares as a model soldier of strength and military intelligence comparable to Athena. In Roma, Mars had a more dignified role as a military peacekeeper, second in power only to Jupiter.

** 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.]]

* Epic from ''Disgaea: Jewel of the gods'' is an example. He's introduced by taking out an immortal, giant enemy that Laharl, Adell, and Mao couldn't beat. After that he get's dominated by Etna, a reaper, Baal's minions, [[TheDragon Baal's right hand man Fried]], Baal, Raiden, and Alex, mixing in some ButtMonkey status along the way.

** In ''Literature/LegacyOfTheForce'', they have their villain stab [[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Kyle Katarn]] through the chest. Thankfully, this get's reversed, and Kyle's shown much more respect, in the ''Literature/FateOfTheJedi'' books.

->''"He's the guy who's here to act tough so new characters can wreck him when they're introduced thus proving to the rest of us how amazing they are! Like [[Franchise/XMen Wolverine]] or [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Worf]]."''

** In ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', franchise newcomers Film/BlackPanther and [[Film/SpiderManHomecoming Spider-Man]] both take on powerful heroes and win; the former chases Captain America, Falcon, and Bucky across Bucharest and only stops when all four are arrested, and the latter steals Captain America's shield, catches Bucky's metal fist in one handed, webs both him and Falcon to the floor, and [[spoiler:even comes up with the plan to take down Giant-Man]].

Both show how powerful they are and that they are able to go toe-to-toe with the other Avengers.
