* Following the new Brand Extension in 2016, ''Raw'' gained two: Former Wrestling/WyattFamily henchman Wrestling/BraunStrowman for the men, and Nia Jax of the Samoan wrestling dynasty for the women. Both have routinely squashed [[{{Jobber}} jobbers]] (up to three at once in Strowman's case), and each also has [[CurbStompBattle curb stomped]] a main roster opponent twice (Wrestling/SinCara for Strowman, Wrestling/AliciaFox for Nia). Both are sold as unstoppable monsters in their respective divisions, with the ''Raw'' commentary crew often wondering how one stops Strowman, and Strowman has even gone so far as to personally threaten ''Raw'' general manager Wrestling/MickFoley in the name of getting better competition. As a result, he got Wrestling/SamiZayn.

* Wrestling/BrockLesnar, the Next Big Thing. Smackdown had a nice amount of cruiserweight wrestlers to feed him and he was faster than most of them too. He also out-muscled those in his weight class and was pretty much booked to be an invincible heartless bastard, helped by the fact he [[RealLifeWritesThePlot broke Hardcore Holly's neck,]] and the fact he finished a match when his own was broken! And then he [[DefeatingTheUndefeatable broke The Streak.]] And now, with a dominating win over Wrestling/JohnCena at SummerSlam 2014 in the books, Lesnar is now being pushed as the ultimate, invincible monster.

* [[Wrestling/{{Vader}} Big Van Vader]], in the early-to-mid 90's was, according to MickFoley, "The greatest monster in the business", and Mick said he saw rookie wrestlers on several occasions actually quit WCW instead of work a match with Vader. Part of it was that Vader had a tendency to get carried away in the ring and was a notoriously "stiff" performer. In the words of Zach Arnold:

* "The American Tragedy" Zack Monstar would start out as an {{expy}} to Jason from ''Friday The Thirteenth" movies in New Era Wrestling and also show up as the "human horror show" in Nova Pro.

* "The American Tragedy" Zack Monstar would start out as an {{expy}} to Jason from ''Friday The Thirteenth" movies in New Era Wrestling and also show up as the "human horror show" in Nova Pro. REAL Pro Wrestling, by contrast, decided to give him a FreakyIsCool baby face push, though he remained as violent as ever and thrived in {{gimmick matches}}.

* Evil Dead, [[Wrestling/JuggaloChampionshipWrestling JCW]]'s wrestling corpse. [[PrettySpryForADeadGuy A little less intact than the Undertaker]], [[EvilIsVisceral his outer layer of flesh is gone]]. [[TheProblemWithFightingDeath He feels no pain, knows no fear]], and has to be restrained by a pair of {{Monster Clown}}s when he's not in matches.

** Incredibly, JokeCharacter [[CharacterDevelopment turned]] LethalJokeCharacter Marty "the Moth" Martinez may even be verging on this status. He's a [[AxCrazy complete lunatic]], his style has been getting more vicious and sadistic as time goes on (culminating in him going completely Wrestling/AbdullahTheButcher on Fenix's forehead with a steel fork and then ''licking it'') and he's a full-blown CombatSadomasochist who openly invites big opponents like Mil Muertes to give him their best shot in the face and then [[FeelNoPain shrugs it off]] with a SlasherSmile. The fact that he can randomly go off after anyone for [[InsaneTrollLogic the most insane reasons]] gives him an extra air of menace, like he's a ticking time bomb walking around the Temple. He still doesn't win many matches and is mid-card at best, but the pieces are there for him to be at least a semi-credible monster.

** To put this in perspective, Goldberg has apparently ''never'' lost a match cleanly (save for a No DQ match, which may or may not count). In standard matches, he's ''always'' come out on top unless cheating is involved.

* Monster Bono of HUSTLE, born when The Great Muta's [[RuleOfSymbolism green mist got on the crotch]] of [[FemmeFatale Yinling The Erotic Terrorist]]. The ManChild was one of the too-dumb-to-know-better examples, as he lost his daddy to The Esperanza and he accidentally {{Killed Off| For Real}} his mother.

* ''Wrestling/WWENXT'''s women's division has [[Wrestling/KanakoUrai Asuka]] who's one of the rare examples where a wrestler is this trope through sheer technique - she's not the biggest wrestler in the division, however her experience and skill have been highly emphasized. She currently has a winning streak that has surpassed that of Golberg.
