** In ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', the [[OlympusMons Legendary Pokemon]] Zygarde is actually composed of many smaller green creatures known as Zygarde Cells (too small and weak to individually be called Pokemon), as well as other small creatures called Zygarde Cores, which serve as the "brains". The form Zygarde takes is actually determined by how many of the cells it has gathered to itself -- the serpent-like form encountered in the games is actually only its "50 Percent" Forme, and it possesses a much stronger Complete Forme resembling a [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/1/14/718Zygarde-Complete_XY_anime.png bipedal mecha-esque kaiju]].

Villains like this aren't always the most lethal, but are often very hard to hurt. Trying to punch one is like trying to punch water (only far more disgusting). In some cases, they are almost impossible to kill, because if even ''one'' of the creatures that makes up its body survives, there is the possibility that it will return (though it may take a while). KillItWithFire is often your best bet.
