** This is the only reason why Orochimaru was able to beat [[BadassGrandpa Hiruzen Sarutobi]], the Sandaime Hokage. Hiruzen was ''way'' past his prime by the time of their fight and even the simple use of the Kage Bushin technique ate away at his lifespan. Orochimaru even said that had this been just ten years before, even with the Edo Tensei Hokages, Hiruzen would have won then. But...since Hiruzen was in old age, the best he could do was a tie with a TakingYouWithMe jutsu against Orochimaru and the Edo Hokages.

**In ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger''/''Series/PowerRangersSamurai,'' the BigBad is, in his first fight with the Rangers, utterly invincible, no attempt to harm him making a single scratch, and comes within an inch of wiping out the heroes in two minutes flat. How, in the final battle, are the Rangers able to win? Well, he's able to beat the sealing spell that kept him [[SealedEvilInACan canned]] for most of the season by absorbing one of his formerly-human generals, gaining a human side and thus immunity from a spell that wasn't made to be used on humans. However, being part human weakens him just enough that beating him goes from completely impossible to merely incredibly difficult.

* Ben of ''Franchise/{{Ben 10}}'' is in possession of the Omnitrix, one of the greatest and most powerful inventions in the entire universe, and almost every important BigBad is after it in one way or another. The biggest RunningGag in the franchise is that the Omnitrix can't just transform Ben into the right alien to solve problems with ease, due to a combination of inexperience with the current model of the watch [[note]]Whenever he does gain enough experience with whatever model of Omnitrix he has, allowing him to understand or even stumble across the method which with to transform reliably, a major plot event will sooner or later bring him back to square one in knowing how the thing works[[/note]] and just plain RuleOfFunny, leaving Ben to take care of things with a different alien or, in cases where the watch hasn't recharged yet, as a regular human.

* ''WesternAnimation/SuicideSquadHellToPay'': Eobard Thawne/Professor Zoom is normally a villain with speed rivaling The Flash. Here, he only uses his speed sparingly, allowing BadassNormal characters like Deadshot to fight him, which Deadshot comments on. Near the end, it is revealed that [[spoiler:this is the same Eobard who got shot in the head by Thomas Wayne/Batman in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueTheFlashpointParadox''. He still has the gruesome hole in his head, and he is devoting most of his power and concentration to keeping himself alive. Eventually, Deadshot manages to shoot him several times in the torso, which makes him lose his concentration and die.]]

** The ancient race of Archdragons in particular rely on this trope to varying degrees to even give you a chance against them, and even then they're usually among the series' most brutal {{Bonus Boss}}es. It took an alliance of all the ancient gods who found the Great Souls in the First Flame, as well as the aforementioned Seath's betrayal of his kin, to end their reign over the world.
*** In ''VideoGame/DarkSouls1'' Seath the Scaleless is, as mentioned, mad, corrupted, and was the only one of his species to not possess the stone scales that made their race immortal in the first place (leading him to betray them out of jealousy). BonusBoss Black Dragon Kalameet is (almost) completely impossible to even fight until you get Hawkeye Gough to snipe him out of the sky, nailing one of his wings to his side and causing him to crash, preventing him from flying for more than a few seconds at a time. The stone dragon you find in Ash Lake as the keeper of the Path of the Dragon covenant goes one further by being the only character in the entire game to be ''completely invincible-'' you can cut off its tail to use as a weapon, but it doesn't even ''notice'' and it's implied it will simply regenerate in time.
*** The Ancient Dragon in ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' is a massive DamageSpongeBoss which has attacks that are almost all a OneHitKill, but you can still kill it in single combat; however [[spoiler:it turns out to (apparently) not be a true Archdragon at all, but a facsimile created by Lord Aldia with a Giant Soul at its core]]. Sinh the Slumbering Dragon from the ''Crown of the Sunken King'' DLC is another incredibly dangerous opponent, but he was impaled completely through the body by a gigantic spear when Shulva fell, which is still lodged there where you fight him.
*** Darkeater Midir from ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' was an Archdragon raised by the gods themselves to fight the all-consuming Abyss, and has become corrupted by it over the centuries. While this has enhanced his power in some ways (such as giving him a laser beam breath and dark sorcerous attacks), it's also implied to be eating away at him. He still remains possibly the toughest boss in the entire series.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': When investigating the White Fang at Mountain Glenn, Ruby is easily captured after she loses her scythe falling down a sinkhole in the abandoned town. Her punches have little impact on her captors and, while she's normally willing to challenge Roman to fight when she has her weapon, without it she concentrates on trying to escape him. She has to be found by her team and reunited with her weapon before she can successfully fight back. In flashbacks, Yang has unsuccessfully tried to get her to address her inability to fight without her weapon but she doesn't make a serious attempt to correct this weakness until Professor Ozpin confronts her about it in Volume 5.

* ''Inverted'' in the Volume 3 finale of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', where Cinder is only able to defeat [[spoiler:Pyrrha due to having stolen the Fall Maiden's powers]]. It's very clear that if not for that, [[spoiler:Pyrrha]] would have won.
