* Wrestling/{{Kane}}, being the little brother of the Undertaker. He was less known for winning titles than for torturing the rest of the roster. Doomsday (his USWA gimmick) was a prototype of this character. In more recent days, it's been shown that Kane is extremely intelligent and fully aware of his monstrous nature, and has even served as the voice of reason at some points; he warned Wrestling/AJLee off of starting a relationship with him by explaining that his psychosis makes him "not exactly boyfriend material", and is currently serving as the (relative) StraightMan in a team with [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]].

* 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 now, with a dominating win over Wrestling/JohnCena at SummerSlam 2014 in the books, Lesnar is now being pushed as the ultimate, invincible monster. And then he [[DefeatingTheUndefeatable broke The Streak.]]

* A story in the ''Manga/{{Batman}}'' manga has a masked wrestling Monster Heel known as the Hangman (guess the gimmick), who tries to set himself up as an AntiHeroSubstitute for Batman. It is revealed that he was outright evil from the beginning, talking a mentally-disabled man into committing a robbery so that he could [[EngineeredHeroism kill him to set up his rep]] as a ruthlessly effective vigilante. The story climaxes with Batman invading a wrestling show and challenging him to a "[[GimmickMatches loser unmasks]]" match.

* Hitting moonsaults while weighing around 91KG at 1.70 meters was impressive enough, but Bull Nakano sometimes completely no-sold back suplexes just to drive in how futile her opponent's effort was.

* The ProWrestlingEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has Amethyst [[VoluntaryShapeshifting turning into]] a huge (male) wrestler named Purple Puma to compete in the local circuit and proves pretty much unstoppable. In a possible inversion, Amethyst is ''actually'' a [[MagicalGirlWarrior super-powered]] alien, but [[PaperThinDisguise but seems to be trying]] to pretend she's a human so the other Crystal Gems won't find out about her. Amethyst is also [[PercussiveTherapy too interested]] in [[ProWrestlingIsReal beating people up]] to cultivate any specific image, only managing to be an effective heel thanks to Steven's showmanship ocne he becomes her tag partner.

* Another literal example can be found in "The Unspeakables", an entire team of wrestling ''{{eldritch abomination}}s''[[note]]a man turned into a slug-like abomination after accidentally encountering a Lovecraftian god below the sea, a sorceress from a race of pre-human SnakePeople, and the ''spawn'' of the aforementioned Lovecraftian god-thing[[/note]] in the ''TabletopGame/StreetFighter'' RPG. Ironically, it was ''also'' done by ''Creator/WhiteWolf''.
