* In ''[[StarWars The Lando Calrissian Adventures]]'', [[spoiler:the BigBad is basically indestructible throughout the story. Turns out his species is actually quite small and non-humanoid, and is using illusion powers to simulate the form we know him as throughout the stories. When Lando scores a lucky shot at one foot, he strikes the ''real'' Gepta for the first time, and with the illusion gone, he's able to finish him with one squeeze. It's a bit more justified then most, in that Gepta makes it clear his illusion powers are ACTIVE illusion.]]
