** Cage "The Machine" is another example- bulging with muscles, stuffed with brutality and almost impossible to put down, he absolutely [[BerserkButton HATES it]] when an opponent gets up after he's knocked them down and will make them pay for their audacity. Not a perfectly straight example as although he's a power wrestler, he's also ''startlingly'' agile for his size (like most of the LU roster) and is easily capable of flying over the top rope in pursuit of his victims... which only makes him even ''more'' intimidating!

** And that's if you're lucky enough to not cross paths with the arm-breaking [[TheDreaded Pentagon Jr]].

** And that's if you're lucky enough to not cross paths with the arm-breaking [[TheDreaded Pentagon Jr]].Dark]]. Pentagon is an interesting variant on this trope as he's not huge, unstoppable, unshakable, implacable, or monstrous; in fact, he's mostly a technical wrestler who largely specialises in submissions. What he ''does'' have on his side is sheer brutal, sadistic viciousness that makes him one of the most outright ''dangerous'' men on the roster.

** 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.

* Following the new Brand Extension in 2016, ''Raw'' gained two: Former Wrestling/WyattFamily henchman Braun Strowman 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.

* 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 once he becomes her tag partner.

* Mordecai, a zealous Christian-in-all-but-name out to prove strength in the faith of God to all the sinners of the world, was one of the many monster characters WWE introduced with the failed long term plan of feuding with The Undertaker. Unfortunately, Kevin Fertig (the man who played him) had stage fright issues, and had to go back to developmental. He later got called back up and repackaged as Kevin Thorn, a wrestling vampire out to feed on the blood of ECW. Kevin Thorn was a "legit" ECW monster after they ran weeks worth of parodies such as shambling zombies for [[Wrestling/JimFullington the Sandman]] to beat with his cane. Fans suspect he was there to meet the science fiction requirement, back when SyFy was still called Sci Fi.

* 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.
