* Just like his comic counterpart, {{Wolverine}} gets this treatment in the [[Film.{{X-Men}} X-Men movie series]]. {{Magneto}}, Mystique, Sabertooth, Lady Deathstrike, and the Juggernaut all had their way with him throughout the series to show how tough they are. [[GoodThingYouCanHeal Good Thing He Can Heal]]!

** Scott makes it to the roof of the Avenger's Headquarters only to be confronted by well-established hero, Falcon. In quick succession Scott avoids Falcons pursuit, enters the Avengers HQ, defeats Falcon in a one-on-one fight, and escapes to reveal he successfully completed the mission. His defeat of Falcon proves his mettle even more when Luis repeatedly describes Falcon as a "badass" during the movie's conclusion.

In quick succession Scott avoids Falcons pursuit, enters the Avengers HQ, defeats Falcon in a one-on-one fight, and escapes to reveal he successfully completed the mission. Thought Falon gave him a hell of a fight and even caught him mid jump-punch which is pretty damn insane. His defeat of Falcon proves his mettle even more when Luis repeatedly describes Falcon as a "badass" badass, which he most certainly is, during the movie's conclusion.

** Slight alteration by Redcloak, when he takes out a tribe's number 2, in front of the number one, and then turns to the chief and says something like, "Oh, he was your chief, wasn't he?". The real chief immediately surrenders to avoid death.

** The hilarious amounts of worfs Kaldor Draigo plowed through is what contributed to his MarySue status, as his codex entry in 5th edition had him all but dance on Tzeentch's ass on how badly he stomped Daemon Champions (including carving a name into a Daemon Primarch's chest). The books later expanded on all of this providing context, while the later 7th edition codex omitted them completely.

** Averted in Roman Mythology, where Mars is treated with much greater dignity. In the Roman pantheon, Mars was the father, guardian, and patron of the Roman people, second only to Jove in importance and power.

** Volume 1 Episode 16 finally shows Roman Torchwick fighting. You know when 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]].

** Yang continues her trend of being the Worf of the series when she fights Adam. [[spoiler:Only in this case fight is a strong word. Adam obliterates her Aura in a [[SingleStrokeBattle single blow]] and it winds up costing Yang an arm.]] The truly scary part is that Adam is working with Cinder due to knowing what she'll do to him and the White Fang if he attempts to go against them.

Added DiffLines:

** Even Harry gets this on occasion. Though he is shown many times to be an advanced duelist for his age, he is completely unable to land a single hit against Lord Voldemort or Severus Snape. He doesn't do much better during his duel with Bellatrix and only survived his first two encounters with Dolohov because the latter got distracted.

* This happens in virtually every text in Arthurian Legend. Every time a new knight is introduced, they prove how great he is by having him defeat a line-up of more established knights. Gawain gets this a lot, as does Percival.

* Nearly every Robin Hood Child Ballad is a variation on the plot of a stranger defeating Robin in combat and thus earning his respect and being invited to join his merry band of outlaws. Read or listened to all at once, they become one long catalog of failure, with the great Hood getting his ass handed to him over and over and over. He even loses to Maid Marian.
* Throughout the early Bible stories (those also in the Torah) the big, powerful empire around is Egypt. Several times the Israelites prove the superiority of their God over this greatest early empire, either by saving it from future famine (Joseph) or freeing an entire subjugated ethnicity despite all of Egypt's might (Moses).
